How often does Arsenal get three defeats in a row? More than you think!

By Bulldog Drummond

Much has been made in terms of three league defeats at the start of the season, and as we’ve noted off and on in recent weeks this is indeed unusual for Arsenal.   Not unique, but unusual.

But a defeat in August or September counts exactly the same as a defeat in November, so I wondered how often we’ve had three defeats in a row at any time of the campaign.  Or come to that any other bad runs.

Part of my point is that much has been made of the fact that we have lost three league games at the start of the season – although three defeats in the league, be they in a row or not, be they at the start of the season or not, always lose us the same number of points.

And what is particularly interesting is that for many of these runs – the majority in fact – Untold Arsenal had people writing in saying this is the worst run ever and that Wenger should resign.

But it turns out that one win in seven can still leave us runners’ up in the league!

My conclusion is simple: three defeats in a row tells us little, except that several members of the team were suffering from the virus at the start, and two of the games were against two of last season’s top clubs.

    Really enjoyed looking at the stats and facts !! Shame some by that i mean many Arsenal supporters do not understand stats or facts !! and as soon as we lose 2 games its Arteta out like before with Wenger !! its a joke !!
    Problem is places like AFTV has brought the negative vibe and wont be happy unless we are winning the league every year or finishing in top 4 every year !!
    Most real supporters know its going to take time. Maybe another 4 transfer windows or 3 if things go well in the next year !
    Keep the faith Arteta will bring us our Arsenal back without doubt !! He is a good manager and you can see that by the way he managed to turn the club around after December !
    He hasnt even been able to play a full strength side yet !! but he will soon !! then we will climb the table and get some great results that will put the critics and anti Arsenal pundits back in their boxes !!

    More than you think. How do you know? Imbecill.

  • It is interesting to be called “Imbecill” after a comment like that – and indeed we do seem to be getting more of this type of comment.

    I guess the world is changing, or maybe the education system is declining faster than I thought.

    @Johnny winter,

    why don’t you take your south pole off the chair you are sitting in, turn off the computer and get a life ?
    And while you are at it, why don’t you proudly show your mom, your kids, your girlfriend the subtle, intelligent, meaningful, elaborate, respectful way you engage in online dialogue. I’m sure they will be so proud of yu and give you all sorts of kiddos.

    Take a dictionnary and look up the word idiot. You know what stands there : see johnny winter.

    And if you have the intellectual capacity and will, why don’t you ARGUE why the author is an imbecile. Write sentences with meanings, defend you opinion. This is what a discussion is about, even in a pub unless talking with people under the influence of too much ale, stout or whatever their beverage of predilection is.

    Very informative post as always. Let us have a reality check at Christmas.
