5-0 is a deep cut.
Oh we are feeling low.
It’s very disappointing but it was to be expected.
This was not going to be the bounce back game.
The wall was too high the wind too ferocious, the water too deep.
But I can see the fight in Mikel’s eyes, the hurt in his voice and the commitment in his body language.
We’re in it deep but now especially we need to stick together and hope for better.
I am going to stick with beleaguered Arteta.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.
