    So Arsenal dropped another three crucial points against West Brom today. That leaves them five points behind Liverpool (55 points) who have one game over Arsenal, six points behind City (56 points) in third and one point ahead of United (49 points) in 6th with a game in hand. United by the way, are two games behind Liverpool and one game behind Chelsea (66 points), Tottenham (56 points) and City. Arsenal currently has 50 points.

    Arsenal's final matches are against City, West Ham and Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough, Tottenham, Manchester United, Stoke and Everton in that order. Arsenal's FA Cup Semi Final tie comes the weekend before the clash with Tottenham.

    The wheels seem to be coming off for the gunners. The futures of Sanchez, Ozil and Wenger are uncertain. One can only imagine how many other players are already contemplating leaving. You could see 'Wenger Out' banners during today's game. Can the top four don, spin a miracle once again to get his team into the top four this season at the detriment of United, Liverpool, City or Spurs, perhaps before signing a new contract or finally bowing out?

    Arsenal have a game in hand on Liverpool, not the other way around.

    I'm not sure where they will end up, but pretty confident they will be below us comes May.

    I think he's staying if he can turn it around. Walking away if not.

    You know who I think will be offered manager position if Wenger leaves.... Ronald Koeman

    I dont think we will get 4th anyway, they will bottle every chance they'll get to. The 4 strongest teams are Chelsea, City, Spurs and Liverpool imo and it that order probably as well. But I do think Arsenal will improve when it starts to matter, and some mysterious capitulation from Spurs/Liverpool will occur as usual.

    Call me crazy but I still think Arsenal will get top 4, as they always do.

    Missed yesterday but it looks like we won't make it now. Wenger then out in the summer and a lot of pressure on the board to both get the right manager in, and help them with the rebuilding job to come. I don't have much faith in them being able to manage it.

    Maybe we need a 'which top 4 threads are in the top 4?'

    I've said this most years for the past ten years, but I do believe that this could finally be the year they drop out of the top four. They have a pretty tough run-in, and there's a lot of unrest among the fans, and probably in the dressing room too.

    Now I've posted this I've probably jinxed it so they finish 4th, above us on goal difference.
