Arsenal lead Reading 3-0 at halftime in their Premier League match. In past seasons, when an obviously mediocre Arsenal side put in a performance like this against relegation battlers, Gooners generally liked to declare that they were finally getting it together and that they were ready to right the ship. And who could blame them? Everyone wants to believe their team is good, and everyone likes to see their team win blowouts.
This year, Gooners seem a little more based in reality. Poor souls. They were having so much fun in their alternate universe. I present Arsenal fans on Twitter, in a nutshell.

And for good measure, let's recall Arsenal's insane Carling Cup win over Reading.
