If he's already signed a contract, he won't need to re-overtake us on FA Cups to stay on.
I think the same mate. Ofc with the obvious differences btw Sporting and Arsenal chances. At least we got to a final once. Best we achieved in the CL was passing group stages to get embarassed by Bayern (oh that sounds alot like Arsenal as well )
It shouldn't be that draining with the squad we have though. We have a lot of players, not amazing quality but surely good enough to win the Europa League. The trouble is Wenger doesn't use the squad properly.
Hey, look at the brightside, at least you didn't lose 7-1
I'd say losing 5-1 twice is worse. At least for the 7-1 you can say maybe the team just had a bad game. We were shockingly bad over two separate legs. At least we're consistent
Errr nah believe me, we were worse. We lost 5-0 at home as well the only satisfaction i have is that Benfica still has the record with a 7-0 loss against Celta de Vigo thank you Heynckes
Exactly. It's also an easier way to qualify to the Champions League.
If it's indeed Wenger's last season, I'm sure he will take it seriously. A chance to win a European trophy for Arsenal.
It would be our first european trophy under Wenger and would help us to build a winning european mentality.
Sky reporting that Usmanov has made a £1B bid for Kroenke's shares. That can't be good news for Wenger.
How can you even talk about winning it before the season's started?!
Have you not seen we've played about 73 games in it to reach the final?
On the contrary, Usmanov has expressed faith in Wenger. He's richer than Abramovich by a considerable margin. Other fans should hope the deal falls through otherwise he wont be scared to sack Wenger and will see Arsenal spend the same as Man Utd and City.
The parasite Kroenke won't sell though. Too cushy of a money making machine because of all the mentally challenged football fans (read: Arsenal fans) who won't protest for their club.
Isn't Kroenke in need of cash to fund the Rams' stadium in LA?
I'm not sure if its to fund it. I know he's getting sued for like $1 Billion or something though.
I meant that if we won it i would consider it a great success.
Usmanov looks like a slug.
"Great" is overdoing it, but of course there's only 2 trophies in Europe these days, so is well worth winning. Back in the day, I doubt anyone for a second suggested the Uefa or CWC weren't worth it.
They need to stop dropping 3rd placed champs league teams back in it though
That could lose that annoying extra round
Nah mate. How else are Bayern Munich going to thrash us 5-1 again if we do that?
The first reply to this thread last year
Haha they're so predictable.

Greedy Kroenke will never sell his toy. We are such a profit machine for him.
Is Usmanov considered the lesser of two evils? Or is he just as bad?
From a Russian fan on another forum :
Usmanov was in the news in Russia lately, after an independent anti-corruption investigation accused him of giving a bribe of a luxury mansion to the Russian prime minister. In response Usmanov recorded an expletive-laden YouTube rant, while on one of his luxury yachts, threatening the guy who released the investigation and claiming it was "an innocent gift". He makes the thuggish Abramovich look like a gentleman in comparison.
He is a bit of a crook. But no one is an angel in Russia.
Probably worse. At least, I'd like a thorough, legal investigation of his alleged crimes before I'd want him in charge: https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2007/09/alisher_usmanov/
Probably better to stick with Kroenke than sell your soul to the devil then
He looks like the Jabba the Hut, but I'll happily be his Princess Leah if it means getting an owner who spends rather than profits.
PLEASE miss out on top 4. I need the massive blud-fam freakout once europa league qualification sets in.
Will miss out on top 4 but Wenger will still remain
Europa League here we come!
The blud-fams are gearing up. I can't wait for the videos.
Why!? It was expected.
It's not so bad.
I believe it's been beneficial for our squad in the long haul.
At least they have quality like Welbeck. Sorry but
It'll be funny seeing Arsenal in the EL after 20(?) years of consistently playing in the CL.
Yeah, don't want to get embarassed in the CL once again.
Bayern will find a way to meet you in the Europa, don't worry!
Make or break for Arsenal. Can they strengthen the squad sufficiently enough to get top 4 next season? If they don't sign quality players and Sanchez leaves I can see them falling out of top 4 again.
