Top 4 Race 2017/18


#160

6 points away from third. We’ve been crap and we’re still that close. Feels like how we used to do it.

4th is perfectly doable, and perfectly fuckupable too.


#161

or it could be as simple as we go and win the europa league then it shouldn’t fucking matter.


#162

I’d rather Europa than top 4, I hope we won’t prioritise the league over it (I know we will though)


#163

I think the team we’ll send out there will depend on who we will draw if we progress.


#164

I still think Chelsea will get top four and it will be
Man City
Man U
spurs
Chelsea

If we win the Europa League and the League Cup but don’t get top four it would be a copy of what Man U did last season, and it might also mean Wenger would consider it a successful season and stay on.

That would be a successful season imo. I don’t see how securing Champions League and winning a trophy would not equal a successful season imo.


#168

Hopefully the deluded types can take a spell from this thread now, another away game yet another defeat.


#169

Congratulations Aussie! You have won! :ozil2:


#170

Harder but still very possible.


#171

Our away form alone tells you that wont happen. 5th is a distant dream unless Chelsea totally implode.


#172

We’ve been known to snap out of it and go on long winning runs. We’ll see still almost 1/3 of the season to play.


#173

Back to being over. We’ve lost 2 of our last 3 PL games ffs :joy:


#174

The other teams are well better mate. They slip up now and then but they dont have runs like we have here.


#175

The main thing is the other teams don’t have 14 away defeats in their last 26 away league games

I don’t know where people thought we even had a sniff of top 4. Seriously do the math even before this defeat today. We probably had to win 10/11 out of 13 which is absolutely unrealistic. Today’s loss is more of the same and hopefully confirms what we should have already known about our top 4 chances.

The MADNESSSSS made me do it

Back to our Thursday night reality now


#178

Want to see the team below. Should have a nice mix of pace, runners and passers. 100% wilshere can do whatever the fuck xhaka has been attempting in the holding position but better. Really cant be fucked with seeing xhaka and iwobi in the team. Give it a change ffs.

Ramsey Wilshere
Mhki Ozil Welbeck
Aub

We’ll beat someone at home next week while Tottenham + somebody else drops points and a bunch of you will be straight back on board the train. Which is fair enough, positivity is a welcome commodity at any stage of the season. But realistically no, the pattern was set months ago with the away day problem
