    Hardly, up until about 5 games ago you were playing some of the most most poverty football the pl has seen. What a short memory you have...
    Did you see the football we were playing last season? And we weren't even scraping results then. What a short memory you have

    Our attack has improved, but defence has been worse. Quite sideways really.

    This really, Mertesacker probably would have declined though had Sagna still been here.

    Imo if we can sign Cech, Schneiderlin, a left back and sign a forward if Theo goes we can win the league next season.

    It's all about our business, and if we can do that, we'd have such depth in the squad, it'd be the best since 2004.

    Last season you were poor but I wouldn't exactly say you were better this season up until a few games ago, I doubt very many in your fan base would disagree.

    I'm just stating what your own fans had been saying until february

    potential 2nd/FA Cup? i'd take it. we're more than that though..... Jose won't slip up, his footballing philosohy won't allow that...

    just happy we're playing well. i don't believe in ifs and buts, but had we beate Spurs, City at home, and Leicester, Swansea, Liverpool away, we would have been top by now. but what's done is done.

    Arsene still has to go though....he's just a top four/Cup manager now, we're more than that.

    Most of our fan base would disagree. The only ones saying that were the kneejerkers like Eboracum and Depleted who overreact to everything and had already forgotten what last season was like.

    Whilst I don't want to be the **** that spoils the party, we were on exactly the same number of points after 31 games last season...

    Are we actually improving or is everyone else getting worse?
    you make a good point...we're static. only positives have been Coq and our attacking players are doing well. and all of them, Santi, Ozil, Sanchez and Giroud which many still reckon is ****.

    I think the PL is stronger mid table than it was last season, pretty weak at either end. Entire top half have been quite competitive.

    Look at us, after years of bull**** when we finally beat a rival convincingly in the prem we're so darn lovely about it.

    What failure does to ya is unbelievable. It's okay to be happy guys don't worry.

    Not the worst thing you could have said. Mertesacker probably was in top 5 of CB's last season.

    I thought Depleted stopped watching football last season? can't remember if true or if it was some one else

    It's more so because there are hardly the same amount of Liverpool posters now as there were last year. We got WUM'd the most because our thread was the most active last season

    We're making progress in areas and beating big teams, but we're prone to injuries and when they hit we're done for. Very easy to lose 10-15 points in an injury patch if you have 4 or 5 players out.

    We need more depth in key areas to compete. Chelsea may not have many defenders (6 I believe) but all 6 are pretty excellent in most defensive roles, its what Sagna helped with over the years, the ability for a fullback to play CB competently is crucial.

    Today showed why we need a new keeper, Ospina is midtable standard, tbf I'd be able to score a pen against him the guy is tiny. Forster or Cech in the summer please (maybe a cheeky bid for Lloris).

    Still think a new cb is needed and cdm and St or winger but todays helped to heal some of the wounds from last season.

    Although if I'm honest, we've beaten a **** United team, a weakened city team and a weakened Liverpool, the big test is whether we can be at Chelsea

    Sounds like something he'd say but don't think he actually did. Certainly not for more than a couple of games

    No every united fan I know has been saying it. Interesting how you judge our supporters based on the Wenger in/outers but we cant apply the same logic to your fans...

    Yeah but I remember him disappearing then coming back at the end of the season for MISC haha. Think he was focusing on his work though.
