    The media’s reasoning for the results of our first 3 games is nothing but profound gibberish and what we have come to expect in the social media age that we live in.

    But for the off the field events surrounding those three games I am sure our league position would be higher.

    Even if the wheels come off and we lose these final games, Arteta and his team will have had a great season.

    If we don’t make the ‘fourth place is not a trophy’ then no doubt the media will rejoice and wallow in yet more gibberish against Arsenal.

    Forward Arsenal and thanks for a great season.

    Rome isn’t build in a day as the expression goes, so I will wait for the day that the work of Arteta is finished. I think our record against the top teams is also improving slowly. And that with a young team. If we can keep them together for just a few years we might be in to something really good.

    @Walter.

    I concurr. I hope we keep Eddie, I think he’s got more to him then what we see and i felt that he was much more physical then I would have expected against West Ham. He’s got a scorer’s instincts and I’d rather our offensive line stays together and gets the time to gel and investment is made in doubling up our two defensive pistons Tomy and Tierney because we’ve seen how their absence impacted our game. The way it looks, we have a good shot at some european competition, which means more games and a need for same squad depth.

    Maybe Gnabry could be a nice solution ticking many boxes (experience in PL, BL, CL, in a star studded squad) and Nelson is still plying his trade in Holland.
    As for Lacazette, the way he behaves on the field or on the sidelines, my guess is that he is a leading figure in the locker room. Which is needed as well.

    So I’d rather the ambition is to aim for ‘not a trophy 4th’ and decent european run then trying to out-City and/or out-Pool the teams on top. Getting back to regular top-4 is more important right now.

    Interesting post although I feel that the level in general is higher in the Premier League currently than it was 7 or so years ago, there really isn’t an easy game these days.

    I wonder how Arsene would adapted his style to the ‘pressing game’ that seems so in vogue by everyone?

    Off topic.

    Coquelin has scored for Mr. Emery’s team to level the aggregate score at 2-2.

    Let’s hope the Yellow Submarine scores another goal and beats Pool!
    Interesting to see them choking for a full half…..

    I’ve heard that Tierney will be the ref for the NLD. Dean will be VAR.

    No news yet regarding the officials for the Leeds match.

    Kavanagh was VAR for the Everton/Man. City match when millions of people worldwide witnessed Rodri’s obvious handling of the ball. I’m still unable to understand how Kavanagh was able to justify that decision.

    I imagine the betting patterns were never considered given that Arsenal weren’t involved.

    Kavanagh is from the Greater Manchester area. Just sayin’.
