Schooled on Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry and the real Arsene Wenger, it is not easy watching how dismally the current crop of players are doing.
They do not look like they have the balls to play for a club Arsenal's size.
The current striker Gervinho is nowhere near Bergkamp's level, the current captain Thomas Vermaelen is mistake ridden and our should be top scorer Olivier Giroud is clearly not Henry.
And to Arsene Wenger.. This one is a fake edition of the real one.
Not good enough
This seasons's side is not the worst outfit in the world, it can hold it's own on a good day but is not a world beater.
To Wenger's standards though, they are good enough to win the title.
They can win anything they want, the Premiership, the Champions League.. You name it, they can win it.
Reality is that we have a team led by a fumbling striker, a confused midfielder and a blundering keeper and we are good enough to win a trophy?
Only in Wenger's mind.
As I speak today, we have lost two games in a row, to Norwich City and Schalke at home.
In both games, we had only one shot on target and on both occasions, we did not even come close to troubling the opposition goalkeeper.
We also gave away poor goals and conceded possession each and every time.
The manager though will come out and try tell people that we are good enough to win, that we are as good as the rest, that we have the best players in the world.
That we are capable.
Against Schalke, Aaron Ramsey and Gervinho made me sick from the way they played throughout but alas no changes. At half-time, no changes.. sixty minutes, none, eighty minutes.. at last.
The only positive change we made was bringing on Giroud on 80 minutes, then the maligned Andrey Arshavin and the very young Serge Gnabry to chase the game.
Considering how badly we had played before and the lack of changes, what struck me was the lack of movement on the bench, the lack of belief to try out other options.
On reflection, I asked myself, Why no changes.. Why? Then it came.. We were playing for a draw. Wenger actually sat there and played it out for a draw.
That is just how low we have sunk.
