    An interesting article about the plight of the club

    Leaving aside who the quote comes from for one minute. Do you not think that, given the record held since 2005 of selling our best players, that there would be a concern to us fans that the same thing wont happen again this summer?

    The article you posted lays out the fact that even though the club always says it has money to spend, AW never spends it. I think everyone with a modicum of sense agrees with that.

    I can't wait to see how the sheep try to defend their unwavering belief if we don't get into the top four this year.

    It's one thing to be in position where you can't compete. It's another when the club keeps telling us it can compete, but then doesn't! It's not as if the sheep around here actually contribute to the clubs coffers. Unlike some of us.

    I really want us to finish in the top four again, and in the CL. Without it, we wont be able to buy the players we need to win silverware.

    At this stage, the odds are stacked against us. Everyone knows we need a miracle and if we get one, the sheep will claim it to be Wengers plan all along.

      This is the sort of nonsense I expect from the likes of Myles Palmer (Arsenal News Review), and not from smart#$%$ cookie like you John.

      Just a few weeks ago, we were been told that points on the table is better than games in hand when Spurs were ahead on points and Arsenal had a couple of games in hand on them. To do a complete u-turn and now claim that "the odds are stacked against us. Everyone knows we need a miracle" is taking the pizza to put it mildly, which proves to me that the board's smart alec are losing the plot big-time.

      • I'm not surprised Rikki took offence at my remarks. Not a pretty sight to watch ones mates being shredded into pieces with cogent arguments.

      • Spurs should get 6 pts from their last three games.
        Chelsea should get 9 pts from their last three games.

        Beating bottom of the table QPR by one goal is dismal. We were so wasteful in front of goal. Knowing we cannot afford to make any mistakes, and must win our last two games
        does not fill me with confidence.

        If you haven't thought for a second that Wilshere wont be targeted for a transfer (especially if we don't finish in the top four) then you are a complete idiot.

      • I'll start worrying about Wilshere leaving in a couple/few years time if things havent improved. He wont be leaving yet certainly not this summer. It just wont happen. Might add that if Wilshere does eventually leave because things at Arsenal have not changed, dont expect Stan to be in control for much longer. If Wilshere leaves because of our lack of effort in the transfer market and competing...you'll have a Liverpool vs Gillet/Hicks situation at arsenal. That would happen!

      'The article you posted lays out the fact that even though the club always says it has money to spend, AW never spends it. I think everyone with a modicum of sense agrees with that.'

      (Hmmm.....spent a fair old whack this season John, has he not!?!?! So much for 'Facts' eh!?!?)

      ' I can't wait to see how the sheep try to defend their unwavering belief if we don't get into the top four this year. '

      Care to explain what this 'unwavering belief' actually is John?

      (first use of 'sheep' BTW!)

      'It's one thing to be in position where you can't compete. It's another when the club keeps telling us it can compete, but then doesn't! It's not as if the sheep around here actually contribute to the clubs coffers. Unlike some of us.'

      Arsenal have not had the best season, granted, a lot of changes in staff this year though. I do believe that should be taken into account. The team has grown in strength as the season has progressed and is in good shape for next season (no doubt the Wenger haters will do their best to disagree).

      Apparently Johns 'sheep' do not 'contribute to the clubs coffers'. As John has no way of knowing this whatsoever, i'd say he was skipping off into his hatred filled land of make believe, yet again.

      (2nd use of the term 'sheep' BTW!).

      'I really want us to finish in the top four again, and in the CL. Without it, we wont be able to buy the players we need to win silverware.'

      Absolute drivel. Who are these players 'we need' then??????

      (You should apply for a scouting job old man!)

      ' At this stage, the odds are stacked against us.'

      The odds are indeed 'stacked against' the club (to qualify for CL next season).

      'Everyone knows we need a miracle..'

      Not really a 'miracle'. A win for Chelsea against Spurs and two wins for us should do it surely?

      'and if we get one, the sheep will claim it to be Wengers plan all along.'

      Oh dear.....John's fantasising about his 'sheep' again.
