Fans at Goodison Park

One supporters anguish sums up current sentiment amongst the N5 faithful as the Gunners suffered another heavy Premier League defeat.

Disbelief and shock.

Those were perhaps the two widespread facial expressions amongst Arsenal fans on Sunday, April 6, regardless of whether they were attending the match live at Goodison Park or watching from their armchairs.

While Chelsea knocked the Gunners out of the Premier League title race after a 6-0 thumping at Stamford Bridge last month, Everton may well have given Arsenal a considerable battering in their shared quest for a top four spot. While the Gunners are not down and out in that battle, especially as they are now only one point ahead of the Toffees who have a game in hand, they have made it so much harder for themselves.

And it should never have been that difficult.

Especially as, for so long in the Premier League calendar, it was they who led the division. It was they who were playing football to the highest of aesthetics but it is now they who are experiencing mid-table form. These are performances that must be halted now, before it is too late and Arsenal suffer a terrible finish to the season after providing their supporters with so much hope.

Perhaps that is why the fan above, a legendary Arsenal supporter - Bully - renowned for his presence in the stands no matter whether the club are home or away, is pictured looking in shock and disbelief at the weekend.
