    Might as well make this a thread. I've already posted my thoughts in Arse Fam TV thread.

    Is anyone else as deeply irrational/bitter as I am? Or does logic win the day?

    Arsenal win or draw. Least bothered about Arsenal.

    Hopefully with Alli's own goal though.

    Arsenal win, with Micky goal. If Arsenal wins, i'd say that top 4 is almost a certainty this year.

    Draw, when two rivals play unless a win is to help us immensely i always hope for a draw.

    I'm not sure. Draw is objectively the best result for us but then again I do enjoy seeing rivals lose (more than I dislike seeing them win). Moreso when Arsenal lose, especially to Spurs. A win for the latter is perhaps the worst result for United though. I can't decide.

    Arsenal win, Kane sent off for breaking Ali's nose and jaw with a kung-fu kick after he flipped him the finger when he missed his third pen of the afternoon.

    Draw or Arsenal win. I think there is less than 1% chance of Arsenal overtaking us so not bothered about any win by them.

    Draw. A point apiece is better than one getting 3.

    Arsenal win thanks to three penalties, all blatant dives.

    Definitely Arsenal win, a draw would do, too. They're not that much of a threat to us this season.

    I'm torn. Massive loss for either of them will be fantastic. Arsenal lose means we are in for a treat in AFT meanwhile Spurs lose means less competitor for 2nd place and seeing banter for Poch and Spurs in here quite fascinating lately.
    Ok, Alli dive twice and get sent off, Mhki put an atracious form in away as always and finally Arsenal lose, i'm in.

    4 all draw with cards and tight hamstrings galore (too mean?)

    And Alii sent off. Always always him sent off.

    Don't see both of them as serious competition for 2nd place. Just hoping for an all round entertaining game
    filled with controversies.
    Is this how its used?

    Spurs will tear up Arsenal for this game, they are good at exploiting naive teams with high lines. Could be 5-0 for this one, although 3-1 more imaginable

    Both to lose, but if I had to choose it'd be a Spurs loss because they're a bunch of scummy cheats.

    I want a Spurs win. Better chance of Chelsea dropping out of top 4 that way and Courtois leaving to Madrid meaning De Gea doesn't go.

    An Arsenal win and a win for us and we're 10 points clear of 5th. I'd take that.

    Over the years, I've actually developed a different kind of opinion of Arsenal. It's strange, as us duking it out with them should've made me hate them more at the time, but I enjoyed those games. Even when we came away with a defeat, or Arsenal won the League, I was more accepting of it than any other time. But now, I just think they're a farce of a team who believe it's a given right that they finish in the top four, are a big team and deserve to be challenging for the title. They're irrelevant right now and don't even deserve to be in the debate. The hatred has become greater than it was when they actually were exactly that [one of the top 2-3 teams in the country]. This is probably down to the majority of their fans being unbearable, however.

    Anyway, to the point, I'd probably want a draw between Spurs and Arsenal, just to make us practically a dead cert for Top 4 with a win at Newcastle (most likely Top 3 even with average form). I'm not really bothered by Chelsea either, despite how their club is run. Obviously, ideally I'd prefer Liverpool to drop out of the Top 4, but Spurs or Chelsea in? I couldn't really give much of a feck.

    I'm with you. Mhki to have a terrible game and their new striker to have a fall out on pitch with his team mates. Then for Robbie on AsnlFanTV try to justify it "look we've been saying for years we want more passion from our players and hes just done that"

    Indeed. Though there are obvious positives to Arsenal losing as well.

    This one is simple, first choice, draw, second choice, Arsenal win, very last resort, Spurs win.

    I don't like Tottenham. I actually hope Arsenal beat them...with a few sending offs or temper tantrums thrown in (Dembele will have a temper tantrum regardless of what happens, because he always does).

    It's Arsenal so you know they're going to feck up anyway as soon as Wenger out season comes around in a few weeks. They'll probably still somehow find a way to get thrashed by Bayern Munich.

    A draw all day, let them share a point, neither deserve to have the bragging rights. Would be a good result for us giving us some more breathing space in second. If one of the team must win then Arsenal.

    Nice. This allows me to be both deeply irrational/bitter and logical at the same time. Thank you, kind sir.

    Hopefully Arsenal stuff them and Muhammed gets sent off. Arsenal are so inconsistent that they'll lose their next game to someone shit anyway. Same as Liverpool when they beat Citeh
