    Can't help but laugh whenever I see this. Relegation form from Southampton, then not only a win, but a 4-0 hammering FFS we are the ultimate banter club.

    Wow, the lack of ambition is so bad that here is an Arsenal fan scared of the difficulty of the remaining 6 fixtures - 4 of which are home games against 14th, 16th, 17th and 20th, one other being Sunderland, and 3 points 'safe' in 4th with a game in hand.

    It's gonna be their year next year!

    We need to collapse as bad as Chelsea at the start of next season so that nobody bothers with us by this time, look at how nobody is mocking their defeat today since everyone has accepted such

    Plus don't blame us for lack of ambition, we're getting sick and tired of the same old car crash seasons you lot gloat over. Yes we can afford big names but only once per year, plus they've won bigger things at bigger clubs already so they're content with only the money

    If we can't beat at home to a palace team who have nothing to play for, then let's just call it a day and go into hibernation until Wenger leaves. Feels like we're Man United nowadays, don't play particularly good football, have a ton of players who clearly don't give a ****, and get embarrassed every other week.

    That being said, fully expect 5 wins from our last 6 to give Wenger the excuse not to sign anyone significant in the summer

    Also, everyone can see the irony of United fans (who's team scraped past the worst premier league team of the last decade, at HOME, and needed an 18 year old to bail them out) and Chelsea fans being the ones who WUM this forum. It's would be funny if it wasn't so tragic. Enjoy having Tuesday and Wednesday off next season lads (well, bar FA Cup replays against league 1 sides...)

    This is the problem with modern football fans (but it's always a constant with Arsenal fans) is you only see things short term, unless it's about trophies then it's long term with you. You finish above us for the first time in the league for 4 years, 2nd time in 12 years, and all of a sudden 'London is red', and 'Arsenal are the biggest team in London'.

    You lot can't even beat us at our worst and you're best for over a decade - always hyping up the games like you're going to destroy us and the game ends up being more one-sided than a gangbang. Honestly, it's embarrassing. Like Arsenal fans taking the piss out of Chelsea not retaining the Champions League, as if they have kind of moral high ground to talk about that kind of thing - or the same with United and the league in 13/14.

    Any fanbase that demands a boycott of Costa Coffee after Diego Costa scores against them deserves whatever **** comes to them - just ironic that that comes from the same man season after season, who just so happens to the Colonel Gadaffi of North London.

    Agree with the former. At this stage of tbe season the last teams you want to play are the ones fighting off relegation. They don't play with the freedom that made them so exploitable at the beginning and middle of the season & the teams make a fist of it. Rotherham & Bristol City are showing playoff form to lift them out of the relegation zone.

    This post is so stupid I have to ask if you're trolling?

    You completely ignored my stance that the remaining fixtures, regardless of the teams positions, are going to be difficult because they're fighting extra hard to stay up.

    And what in the slightest does that even have to do with ambition? Nonce.

    I understand your point, even if it is wrong. You see, Arsenal ARE the biggest team in London. Recent history favours Chelsea by far, I don't think anyone denies that, but that's about it. You're short sighted in the fact that you can't understand that Chelsea have only been a more successful team than Arsenal since 2005.

    There are many Spurs fans who suddenly think there's a shift in power in NL (and they haven't even finished above us yet) even though we've finished above them every year for the past 20 years and they haven't won a title since 1961. I haven't seen anyone else suggest Spurs fans are beyond deluded, many even seem to support their narrative, but when an Arsenal fan says something illogical everyone jumps against them and groups them in the same category.

    Also, pretty sure that Costa boycott thing was just banter by AFTV, and even if it wasn't why would anyone take them seriously? Theyre just a bunch of fat clowns.

    We haven't lost in four league games although our recent run-ins seem to suggest we take our foot off the gas only when there's significant comfort between 3rd and 5th. But now not even 4th is enough in the event that man city's league form dips and they win the champions league. So getting at least 15 points in the next five games is imperative. I could point to 2011-12 where we dropped points to relegation battlers qpr and Wigan but we were lucky that spurs and Newcastle bottled their run-ins just as much as we did

    Btw. Someone here uses one such person's behaviour as the basis of how he views all such people. If that's the case then he's a dangerous man and everyone should look out for him. Now I'm not saying everyone like him is dangerous am I?

    makes our draw last week even worse..

    This result should be making us look up, not down - but instead its just more motivation for spurs to perform, and more for us to regret past results..

    west ham though.. such fine margins away from CL football:

    Leicster away: 2-2, 90th minute pen.
    Arsenal home: 3-3,
    Crystal palace home: 2-2, un-fair red card
    Chelsea: 2-2, soft 89th minute penalty.

    4 draws that all could have been victories with only a slight shift in fortune.. would have seen them with a really good shout of top4 football..
