    Shed End is like a more annoying version of Beetlejuice. Say his name enough and he'll appear.

    Anyway, shame United won, but at least we are opening up a gap on 4th place. Chelsea (scum) have the league wrapped up, and I reckon we'll face a tough battle for second, so lets hope the boys put 100% into the Reading game - CL and an FA Cup is decent returns, plus sets us up for next season nicely.

    Top four is done and dusted for United & Arsenal. Look up, not down. I think our game will decide second place.

    Incidentally, after today Chris Smalling has the same number of league goals as Danny Welbeck. From less appearances as well

    heres a question for you guys..

    At the start of the season, when we signed welbeck - wenger got a huge amount of hate, because it was rumoured that he only wanted a year loan, but the board went over his head, and signed him properly..

    Myself included were glad of this - and berrated wenger for not wanting to spend money/sign a forward etc.

    --

    But as the season draws to an end? lets be honest.. wenger was right... a loan probably would have been best - as well, welbeck has really fell off from anything resembling form

    It's the first time in years that Arsenal vs Man Utd feels really......intense. Even if it isn't for the title, it just feels like there's something more to it this year. Probably because both teams have their mojo back

    Some footballers are just better at scoring on international duty or in continental club football

    I think Welbeck would've seized his chance during Giroud's absence if the rest of the team weren't as bad

    I like Welbeck, he's a really likeable guy. A very honest player to, which is rare these days. But he's probably not Arsenal quality in all honesty.

    I disagree with people that said he's Sunderland/Hull quality, he's better than that, I think he'd do well in a top half team that hovers around the Europa places. Somewhere like West Ham

    Exactly my thoughts as well.

    Incidentally, Dat Guy put one past you in the FA Cup to send us through BTW, how are Falcao and Di Maria doing on the scoring charts? (Having said that, I bet they both score against us when we play you)

    Nah it was the other way round. We wanted a loan (which Spurs were offering) but Danny wanted a permanent move (which Arsenal were offering). Imagine what would have happened to Harry Kane if that happened!

    I like Welbeck and he's a decent enough player, but he's not good enough to be a regular starter for a side like Arsenal or Manchester United. Especially as a forward. I don't think £16m was an excessive fee though, especially when you consider Balotelli and Falcrap cost a similar amount. You'll be able to sell him to someone like Everton or West Ham in a couple of years for that same amount.

    They both have 4. Di Maria also has 12 assists.

    Welbeck isn't an improvement at all if we're honest, would almost rather have fraudolski than him tbh because at least hell score some guys against bottom half fodder.

    Sure he's a nice guy but he's no top class striker right now.
