    Yes, let's celebrate finishing 2nd even though we were 10 points behind Leicester. We did not deserve to finish ahead of Spurs, pains me as it does to say it. They just collapsed in their last 3 games and let us overtake them. So many deluded fans who are happy to accept mediocrity and are happy to ignore to brush over the many faults that we have at Arsenal caused by Wenger and the board and tell everyone to "get behind the team". Most of these people normally live in the USA or some other foreign country. Not having a go at foreign fans or anything, but when I'm paying money to see Arsenal then don't tell me what to f*cking do. I'll criticise if I want to.
    Same feeling here, I will always pay to watch Arsenal but I refuse to buy the merchandise these days, and food... since its going to nowhere except the bank.

    Just all round terrible, I don't think anyone will want to join us now even if we pay the money.

    disagree,*

    1st - yeah, a worldie can be scored any time.
    2nd - Mert gets something in the way a decent number of times out of 10
    3rd - Most of the time kos is not letting courtinho get the better of him as easily as holding did
    4th - Not as clear as 2+3, but I would back kos to win in the battle with mane far more frequently then chambers
    1st goal - world class, nothing you could do.
    2nd goal - intricate passing which would've easily bypassed Mertesacker.
    3rd goal - better CB positioning could've made a difference, I agree.
    4th goal - Mané gonna Mané, hard to stop him with that pace/strength.

    All in all, it's easy to look back and say hey your missing players would've been amazing and made the difference, but we all know it doesn't work that way so we just have to look at who was on the pitch and what happened on the day.

    We were missing Sturridge and Sakho who are two of our best players, and they could've had just as big an impact as your absentees too.

    You've had almost two months and have still not bought a top CB.. That's 3 pts you could've easily taken today; Liverpool are a poverty team. The whole club is in a state of rot, it needs tipping upside down.

    Can't wait for ArsenalFanTV tonight. Hope Claude is well.

    Tragic thing is Luke genuinely now thinks his team are top 4 favourites because they managed to just scrape a win against pretty much the worst team we could have played.

    1) Ozil is quality (on his day)
    2) Sakho gets in to the France team ahead of Koscienly
    3) Mertesacker lol
    4) Sturridge is better than any striker you have

    we'll see how the next two games (before 1 September) pan out. Repeat of 2011 on the cards imo. And Wenger will continue to be wary of spending on duds like Arshavin, Squillaci, Santos, Debuchy

    Tragic thing is how much you're hurting so you're desperately looking to attack whoever you can.

    We are never going to win the PL or CL until Wenger either goes or spends some money (over 50mil) on some top quality players, particularly a striker. Wenger is,however, too stubborn to fork out some extra cash if the price tag of a player is beyond his perceived value of a player. He needs to realise that paying more money is worth the extra unique quality a world class player can bring to the team.

    We are going to be stuck in a cycle of mediocrity until something changes tbh.

    I guarantee nothing will change even after Wenger leaves. Kroenke & Gazidis will gutter the club once there's no chance of it being any more significant as it is now.

    he's been poor ever since he clipped one Diego Costa...
    Wenger ofc struggling to find that CB that will replicate his "aerial prowess" and be fast too

    Nah, Sakho is better mate just accept.
    Mertesacker is okay but nothing more.

    Jesus Christ, the guy was dropped for Gabriel last season...

    It doesn't matter anyway - we both had major players out but that happens all the time. On the day we were simply better and perhaps you should look at your own team's issues on the field instead of crying about how you would've won with a full strength side.
