    Go ahead and gloat, detractors. I can't wait till the fans can afford to watch the team. if Arsenal can fill a 60k stadium with such expensive ticket buyers then surely they can if the quality of our players is slightly less and their wage demands much lower ?

    Our 2006/2007 team is a clear testament to that statement.

    where's that jeb end who said arsenal's problems aren't about their mentality?

    2-0 up crumble, fall behind, get composed and almost win.

    mad talk about a late title charge for the arsenal. You'll probably close the gap on leicester, and might even pip tottenham to 2nd, but you simply can't win it because you'll find a way of bottling it. That's arsenal, you're a good, fair team that is always in contention, but as soon as the heat is turned up you melt like flora butter.

    Not gonna lie, it would make my year to see arsenal throw the league away on the final day by losing to aston villa at home.

    it's not down to mentality, that's just a motd and british pundit copout. It plays some small part but there are bigger factors.

    It's mainly a lack of quality transfers and depth (disastrous summer window), incompetence in keeping key players fit, and poor tactics.

    Wasted season.

    We'll probably slink back to our 4th place throne next season,

    yet the same thing happens year after year. You've addressed all those points (some more than others) and the only consistent factor in arsenal's struggles in the last few years is lack of a strong mentality when the pressure for titles is on.
    I'm not afraid to say, I told you so - you are right Jimmy. There is a fundamental problem with Arsenal's mentality and that comes from the manager. You were 2-0 up and cruising but still found a way of bottling it.

    Embarrassing.

    Mentality is DEFINITELY a factor. People discount it but it's very important.
    Take my uni football team, we have a winning mentality, we never give up and are always positive and as a result often win games we have no right to win in terms of individual quality. Won 1 of our leagues this year, where we'd been promoted the year before and were one of the worse sides on paper. But we have a never say die attitude that won us a lot of points with last minute winners and battling results when we weren't playing well. Then I compare that to my summer cricket team, where we go out every week like we've already lost before a ball is even bowled. As a result, we lose games we should easily win, because bar one of 2 players there's no fight.
    It's the difference between letting a sloppy goal in and seeing out the half, and getting nervous and ****ing up.

    I mean, I didn't mention my role in either team. I'd never do a step over, and go for a catch? No chance....

    For the cricket one, maybe a gif of Stokes in the last over of the T20, embarrassing doesn't come close
