The Gunners stats for the month of Jan give the clearest indication to date that they are finally coming of age. In all competitions they have managed to score 16 and conceded a miserly 3 in 8 games played. Compare this to the Jan Stats a year ago, where a total of 7 games were played, resulting in 12 scored and 11 conceded.
In the league the Gunners are joint leaders with Utd in the form table based on the last 6, with a points tally of 14 from a possible 18. Where they have significantly outperformed Utd has been with their away form, boasting the best away record in league having accumulated 7 points more than Utd on the road.
There is really a good feeling building in the Gooners camp. With a final berth secured in the league Cup, any hardened Gooner would be forgiven for wondering, sensing, thinking, fantasizing, dreaming and hoping that the lure of Wembley will be the watershed moment in this teams development that brings a flood of trophies starting with a record breaking *whisper* quadruble!
Okay so I get ahead of myself!
Next Up Huddersfield in the FA Cup 4th round. Surely the Gunners (B team) wont let this one slip like they did against Leeds & Ipswich, I mean, it does look like Arshavin & Bendtner are finally finding some form!
Exciting times ahead!
