Arsenal’s next 4 games are: Spurs(H); Burnley(A); Huddersfield(H); Man Utd(H). I cant see anything more than 4 points out of that little run. Spurs will hammer us and Man Utd will no doubt keep a clean sheet and win 1 or 2 nil. A point at Burnley will be a good result and we should beat Huddersfield but it wont be easy. If Im right this will see us firmly ensconced in mid table with the top 4-6 long over the hill and away. Its not looking good for the Whinger Boy is it?November 11, 2017 at 1:56 pm #1556417
I’ll say we get 8 pts then no more maybe 7 depending on how Utd set-up…
hell why not get 10 pts with 3 home victories and a draw at Burnley if you think it would be a good point…November 15, 2017 at 11:30 am #1557580
Hi lads, it has been a while since i last visited this site. i have to say you have a massive game on Saturday. but let me tell you this one. i can’t see you guys losing this game. mark my words. the least you will get is a draw. and if your players turn up for this game and which i suspect will be the case. i see no reason why you can’t take all 3 points. this is the perfect game for you guys to revive your season back on track. it gives a lot of confidence when you beat a fellow contender.
Personally i hope you guys take all 3 points. because of the Media hype between Spurs who i felt hasn’t done enough to warrant that praise. i feel you have to opportunity to lay a marker. Spurs have won nothing, but if you look at the English media, you will think that they are back to back champions. come on Arsenal you can pull this one off. i want to see the faces of those Neville brothers who had been running with the notion that Spurs will overrun Arsenal once you beat them.November 15, 2017 at 12:32 pm #1557620
welcome C man, as you know form the mian page im nervous about this one (and most games we play these days) but i do think the spuds have been overhyped they have won nothing and have only done what other clubs have done consistently for years, i think its the fact they have a promising bunch of english talent that is making the press cream themselves…November 15, 2017 at 3:09 pm #1557689
It hurts to say this but we might actually owe the Scum some gratitude. For years, Wenger hid behind the money factor, claiming that he was doing a brilliant job considering his budget and Chelski and the Manchesters’ lack of one. Poch and co are showing that up to be absolute bollox. No, they haven’t won anything but they’ve been doing something we can only dream of and at least putting up a fight. Chances are that we’re stuck with Wenger until 2019 (at least) but the more his excuses are blown out the water, the less tenable his position becomes. Even our useless board have to have a breaking point.November 15, 2017 at 5:01 pm #1557748
Steveo= the arguments about what the Spuds have won and what we have won is old hat now. How long has Wenger been here? How many years has he had pretty high budgets and high wages ( compared to our little neighbours) to make us competitive? How long has Pochettino been at Spurs? And lastly, going forward, which team is likely to improve and which regress with their current managers? And I agree, the Argentinian might be snapped up by a bigger club before too long! If only Wenger would go and coach some national team before 2022- are we stuck with the stubborn old despot until then? God forbid………November 16, 2017 at 8:59 am #1557850

Dont let little old spurs fool you guys. They have spent obscene amount on players over the years that wenger has been here. They just recoup more than what they shell out more often than not.
Al, spurs have bottled every season possible. They finished behind us when leicester won the league, they have failed to even lift the FA cup with their ‘over hyped squad’ whilst we have won the FA cup with a squad more people than not (inc me) think is spineless and not good enough. Spurs whilst better than they were 5 years ago are still a huge failure. They have spent money and lots of it, yet they still cant even win a carling cup with this ‘great team’
They are much better than they were and thats alot to do with Poch but they arent this superior club who are blowing everyone away. They are still only a nearly team and until they win the league, FA cup or CL they cant be considered this amazing team like so many would have you believe.
Anyways – i’d be more confident if this game was being played at Wembley in all honesty. i can see us sneaking a lucky win or draw this weekend providing we dont start Xhaka, Ozil or Holding i think we can get a win. them 3 start we will lose and lose convincingly.November 16, 2017 at 11:44 am #1557925
Andy, I don’t disagree with anything you say but there’s a few caveats.
Yes, the Spuds have spent big and, as you say, this has been countered by what they’ve recouped but that is the exact excuse that Wenger and his defenders have hid behind for years. Over the last five seasons, they have a net spend of practically zero – we have a net spend of minus £200m.
Then you have to take into account wage bills – ours is double that of the Totts. That’s a massive factor – we have to offer the likes of Sanchez and Ozil £300k per week, in the desperate hope that it will persuade them to stay, yet Poch can hold onto the likes of Kane and Alli for less than half that, because they at least think the club is actually going somewhere. I have little doubt that Sanchez would stay for pretty much the wages he’s already on if he felt we even had a chance of challenging for the big prizes.
Look, I don’t want to give the Scum the remotest amount of recognition or praise but the hard fact is that they’re a club going forward and giving their fans something to get excited about. We’re a club that’s either stagnating or going backward, depending on who you ask, but even the most rabid Wenger supporter couldn’t argue that we’re moving forward.November 17, 2017 at 11:15 am #1558303
Talking of expenditure youre forgetting Leicester, they won the PL with a pub team expenditure and pub team players. Lets not forget Wenger has thrown away £60million on Sanchez, hard to say with Ozil because no one wants him. Wenger bought players over the last 18months who have not done a thing Xhaka £34m, Mustafi £35m, Perez £17m, Lacazette £52m. Youre looking at well over £200million wasted and we actually have a team that is poorer than it was 2 years ago. Lets forget the rubbish we had on here last year from the likes of Steve68 that we have the best squad in the PL, total tosh. Lets forget Fatmop’s assertion that we can win the PL this season, even bigger tosh. Then we had fat mop and AlThegoon Er telling us what a great decision it was to keep Sanchez, no it wasnt. We have a poor unmotivated team, many of the players dont want to be at the club and they certainly dont want to play for the clown that is Clouseau. There should be only one priority at Arsenal and that is get rid of this fool asap.November 17, 2017 at 11:21 am #1558306
i think we all agree the fool needs to go there is no point constantly point scoring with who said what, just give your view it will be proved right or wrong and leave at thatNovember 17, 2017 at 2:58 pm #1558399
Shifters, all that would have happened if we’d sold Sanchez is that another £60m would be sitting in the bank, earning interest.
No doubt you get an imaginary profit share, along with your imaginary free cup final ticket, all included with your fake shares and season ticket, but for those of us who don’t live in La La Land, it’s hard to care how much money is sitting in Arsenal’s bank account. I prefer Arsenal with Sanchez than without, even if he goes for free next summer.
If Wenger would spend the pile of cash he already has, different story but he won’t (something you like to whinge about). Of course, when Wenger does spend, you’ll whinge about that and let’s be honest, if Wenger had sold Sanchez last summer, you’d now be whinging about that too. I think I see a pattern here…..
