    The problem with that is his shot conversion rate is the big let down - as I said he's not on course for a great amount given the service, because his shot conversion is 14.4% - roughly one in 8.5 shots; which for a supposedly top class striker is woeful; he's not a natural finisher, and that's a big black mark. Adjusting for the pace of a league, getting into the right sort of positions, strength and awareness - they can all be trained, finishing - you've either got it or you haven't.
    How many of those shots are outside the box though and from clear cut chances? Chance conversion is probably a more appropriate stat for judging his finishing ability.

    Not really sure what's worse. Arsenal fans who would support Wenger even if we win nothing or Arsenal fans who want other teams to win the league just so Wenger gets sacked.

    At first I wanted us to win, but if Leicester sign Remy I'm happy for them to win.

    I would definitely want us to lose if that guarantees Wenger gets sacked but that's not gonna happen anyway.

    vs Chelsea: 4 league wins out of 24 since 2004-05 incl.
    vs Man Utd: 3 league wins out of 17 since 2007-08 incl. (2006-07 the last time Arsenal did the double, when Utd won the league)
    vs Man City: W5 D5 L5 (PL) since 2008-09 incl. (when oil money took over)
    vs Tottenham: W5 D5 L5 (PL) since 2008-09 incl. (when Harry Redknapp took over)
    vs Liverpool: W4 D6 L2 (PL) since 2010-11 incl. (2009-10 the last time Arsenal did the double, which was Liverpool's worst season in more than a decade)

    also don't forget:
    1 win at Stoke since they were promoted
    Winless at Southampton in each of their last five Premier League seasons

    Interesting draw coming up as a lot of the big teams are still in. Very important that we avoid a big away game as it will be just before Barca H and United A, and need a bit of luck. Really hope Chelsea/City draw each other.

    I've wanted Wenger out for a while aswell but I'd never, ever want Arsenal to lose for any reason.

    we're facing a completely different Hull side. Promotion favourites in the Championship. Odubajo and Clucas desperate to prove themselves. Abel H. too

    They can't play Akpom or Hayden though. I know this game is just before Barca H but I think we should play at least eight first team players. Our biggest worry is that these players don't take this seriously. We have a great chance to win it again.

    I haven't seen the draw but I could care less about the FA Cup. That trophy will do nothing for us we've won it the past 2 years it means nothing to me if we don't win the league.
