Our resident Arsenal fans drinking in the Football Transfer Tavern have agreed with our landlord to keep their signature yellow and navy balloons and bunting above the bar until this weekend is over, hell bent on continuing to enjoy last weekend’s FA Cup Final success over Aston Villa.
A topic on the lips of many fans in the bar this week has been whether Arsenal have truly progressed and whether they can call the 2014/15 campaign a successful season.
For the majority of Gooners, they do believe the team is headed on the correct path towards Premier League glory in the next couple of seasons with automatic qualification to the Champions League secured – they’ve finally trumped fourth – and of course a second successive FA Cup delivered, no mean feat in modern day competition.
For others however, they claim Arsenal are performing around the same level as they enjoyed in 2013/14. After all, Arsene Wenger’s men accumulated 79 points last season, four points more than the 75 they accumulated in 2014/15 so for this reason, their argument does stand up somewhat.
Despite this, our more positive Gooners are claiming that any Arsenal side with Alexis Sanchez in it surely has to be more successful than without with the little Chilean having truly lit up the Premier League in his debut season and given he was carrying Arsenal for large periods on his own, some believe it is he and not Chelsea’s Eden Hazard who deserved the PFA Player of the Year crown.
With 2014/15 now done and dusted, we have shortlisted 5 of the more outrageous moments from Arsenal’s most recent campaign.
