    90 percent of your posts on here is telling us how easy Arsenals fixture list while forgetting how untrustworthy they are!
    We'll win in a few weeks and break them, they'll be focused on El within a month.

    Have to look at the venues really.

    Man. City away....Hardly anyone even gets a point there unless Andros Townsend plays for them.

    West Ham away....Dodgy ground for top 6 this year. Chelsea got a 0-0 and should've lost, Liverpool 1-1 and no more. Man. United....

    Liverpool away.....Same as Man. City.

    Brighton away- Always a tricky venue as Mourinho found to his cost.

    Man. United away- People might say how can they not beat a Mourinho team but remember Man. United haven't lost a home fixture since August. Arsenal are always rubbish at Old Trafford so draw wasn't too bad that night.

    Only game they really messed up was Southampton away.

    Before that they went to Bournemouth, Fulham, Cardiff, and Newcastle and won. Not great teams but comparable to likes of Everton and Leicester who are just as much out of form.

    You sure you're not an Arsenal fan?

    Every one of your posts seems to be talking about how Arsenal will make top 4.

    :lol: My Mother supports them.

    I just like posts with a bit of context rather than ones just blindly dismissing a team for losing games at venues where the two other teams in this particular race have also lost games.

    TBF 4th is very hard to call. I think I did say 10 days ago Man. United were now favourites for 4th (after Leicester away I think) so it will obviously flip every other weekend (Man. United could easily be back in 4th by Saturday 5pm for instance) when there's only a point or two between three teams.

    Probably I defend them so much purely as I think they have far and away the weakest squad of the three. They still had mugs like Lichensteiner, Mustafi and Xhaka starting for them yesterday so overall following a legend in his first season I think Emery has done well to keep them as competitive as they have. That's all.

    They also lost againt BATE Borisov in Europa league, lost against Chelsea, got a draw against palace. so basically, they got good results only against the bolded teams... hardly good results away from a top team.
    This is the table away :

    1 Tottenham 33 pts
    2
    Liverpool 31 pts
    3
    Manchester City 26 pts
    4
    Manchester Utd 26 pts
    5
    Chelsea 22 pts
    6
    Watford 20 pts
    7
    Wolverhampton 19 pts
    8
    Arsenal 18 pts

    They got less points than watford and Wolverhampton ....

    As I’ve said, I’m thrilled at our position given the circumstances and some of our players, and am inclined to agree we’re potentially looking at 70+ points.

    But looking at the table and fixtures, closing that 7 points to spurs is my target. I would’ve laughed at myself for even considering these things at the start of the year.

    Football eh?

    I could be back here in 2 weeks feeling like the season is well and trully over as well though.

    I'm very happy with how Arsenal are playing, effectively wihout a defense and with our most potent attacker sidelined. But I think we've got a better chance to reaching the CL through winning the EL rather than making the top four.

    We are 11 points better off than last season after 28 games. Even if we look turd sometimes, Emery has done so well.

    Hope you’re on the mend after your little outburst yesterday:D

    He has done quite well indeed. Think positive about that result, we stopped them from being able to tag themselves as “the undrawables” and they haven’t beaten us in the league this season, and we’re still in with a decent shout for top 4.

    I thought they were very good yesterday. Spurs looked clueless for most of the game.

    If it wasn't for Ole, I'd have Emery down as my manager of the season.

    We had about two months of dreadful form after the match beating Spurs in December, though that seems to have recovered now that Mhiki and Özil are back and playing well again. I feel that Emery is finally getting to grips with the defence too - the recent matches against Spurs and Chelsea were miles better than anything we managed in the first half of the season.

    The squad still needs work, and a resolution to the Özil issue, but Emery’s doing well. 4th or a EL win would be a huge success (preferably the latter), but both will be incredibly tough. Next Sunday is absolutely crucial.

    That would be a stretch. We’ve had stretches of dire form in defence and attack.

    Maybe so, but you're 4 points behind a stronger Spurs side with everyone's favourite manager at the helm. Emery hasn't even been there 9 months and he has you somewhat back on terms with your biggest rivals. That's some going.

    Only Ole has done undoubtedly better for me. Klopp/Pep maybe also depending on who wins the league.

    Those reaction videos are just beyond stupid. I cannot concieve for the life of me why you would film your every reaction to whats going on especially when instead of reacting normally you see their eyes flicker to the camera to see how it looks. Daft.

    They can lose to absolutely anybody away from home.

    It's going to cost them top 4 I think

    Shit like that happens, sending off away from home no matter what team you are makes it difficult. Still, it's a 2 leg tie so easy enough to turn it round. You need to weed out some of your older defenders though.

    Think that's them done for this season's europa.

    Can see Rennes scoring at Emirates so if that happens Arsenal would need three just to get extra time. Lacazette is still banned aswell.

    Sokratis hasn't done too badly since he came in but fair to say the guy is a far bit below elite level defending.

    Sunday is huge for them now. Think all the players who keep getting sent off in europe owe Emery a performance for that game.

    Unlucky - Aubeyamang was onside and one on one with GK - referee gives off side and straight away gives a yellow to the arsenal defender; later getting a red.

    Bit gutted they've got a good chance of getting knocked out. They'll be our biggest competition for top 4 I reckon (unless Spurs bottle it), and us being in 2 extra competitions is going to be an advantage for them.

    Beat them on Sunday and we'll have some breathing room as we come into the international break.

    I told you.

    Their away form is horrendous. They can lose to anyone away.

    Guendozi with another shocking performance to add to the countless other shocking performances. Yet many Arsenal fans say that you don't know football if you don't think he'll become world class. They've got their new Jack Wilshere from the looks of it.

    Also, Santi is hilarious after a loss. His insults are very creative.

    TBF it dosen't really matter so much in europe, they lost to Bate and still comfortably beat them at home. I also of course don't factor them in needlessly going down to 10 men in every away game they're playing atm.

    I think if they'd kept it down to 2-1 they'd have every chance of going through. 3-1 feels an uphill task, the Emirates is hardly a hotbed for a second leg like Anfield can be.
