    I mean, statistically we're a top 16 European and has been for 5 years...
    At the very least... We've been past the group stages for the last 13 odd years which puts us even higher.

    Honestly, Arsenal piss me off more than the next person, but why aren't they a top club? They are certainly top ten in Europe, and you would be pretty stupid to try and argue otherwise. Your logic is pretty idiotic anyway, a player cannot have good potential/be of top quality if he isn't at Bayern, Madrid or Barca? Because those are the elite clubs, anything else is a massive step down. Those clubs don't have an unlimited roster if you hadn't already realised, they can't spot and tap up every talent in the world.

    I think you forgot to log onto your other account btw.
    No history of major European honours, and they don't currently compete for major honours (league titles, european titles)

    To be top 10 in Europe, then surely at some point they would have to show they can best a team in the last 16 of the CL.

    If a player was top quality, then surely atleast one club that competes for major honours would be in for him: Bayern, Madrid, Barca, Dortmund, Chelsea, United, City, PSG, Atleti, Juve etc.

    Honestly, by building such a nice stadium, Arsenal have tricked you in to believing they are a bigger club than they actually are. People have mistaken commercial revenues for being a big club- it's not the same.

    Didn't think you could be capable of filling a post with so much bull but you've managed to outdo yourself.

    How are Dortmund competing for major honours? Please explain. Are LFC, MUFC, CFC in better positions than Arsenal right now? No, in fact I think you'll find none of those clubs have an opportunity of winning the CL next season and have all finished below Arsenal (barring Chelsea, the other two are making a habit of it now) so GTFO here with that rubbish. United can easily come back up the pecking order due to their huge wealth but that's about it. PSG play in a one team league and always put on a poor show in Europe.

    Juve and Atletico are the only clubs in that list, barring the big three which I already mentioned, which are probably more attractive destinations to a player wanting to have a successful career.

    The Dortmund thats been to CL finals and won Bundesliga titles in recent years? That the one that doesn't compete for major honours? They actually compete, we just roll over for anyone. Even the Monaco manager said it, everyone knows how to make Arsenal roll over.

    LFC are irrelevant. Never called them a top club.

    MUFC. LVG has the squad performing well under potential. The raw potential is there, within 1-2 years they can be competing for major honours. Plus, its not even up for debate, they're a bigger club than us, they're the biggest club in the country ffs.

    CFC. Had a freak season. Will obviously be competing for major honours next season. Always put up a fight in the CL, and dont roll over like us.

    PSG are so poor in Europe they go out to heavyweights like Barca and Bayern. That one? We roll over for Monaco ffs.

    But if Giroud is sold that'll probably be adjusted down to 15th or 16th...

    His post was on the last page, you could have gone back another page (that's assuming your pikey dial-up can do so), quote the original post, and avoid this unfortunate argumentative situation (for which you are to blame) from ever occurring.

    4 years ago isn't recent. 4 years ago Milan were relevant, now they're a complete nothing club. The next few years will cement Bayern's position as the only relevant club in Germany whilst Dortmund continue to sell their best players to their rivals and fall of the relevance scale.

    No one said MUFC aren't the biggest club in the country, but right now they're no nearer to competing for major honours than Arsenal are. Fact.

    Big clubs don't have freak seasons and end up finishing 10th.

    PSG go out to the same clubs we do. Barca and Bayern. Monaco was the exception, not the norm.

    Your post is of no value until you actually make a relevant contribution and name the top clubs ahead of Arsenal instead of posting GIFs you nonce.

    Oh, you're back. Klopp's done pretty well to f*ck up not one but TWO finals in his first season, wouldn't you agree?
