    dont really mind at the moment..

    Both dropping points is great ofcourse.. but liverpool win and they are still 3 points behind us, and we sitll play them at home.. really not to worried about them at the moment
    Very true, Liverpool are bound to drop sooner or later.

    The issue for me is that they've been a team of the second half of the season, and with sturridge's return that could well be the case again.

    Nonetheless, we should still get 2nd/3rd

    Our run is easy now until we play them in april.. but for me, and I said this back a few weeks ago, that will be a huge game, and decide if we get top4 comfortably, or possibly dont get it.

    Think spurs will drop away, so will southampton.. and it will be united, arsenal, liverpool. - probably with us and united pretty close, and liverpool 4-6pts behind.

    If we beat them at home, we should have enough of a gap at that point to look ahead at the chelsea and united games, and think.. even if we dont win those games, we should still get top4.

    But if its a 3pt or less gap after the liverpool game (we loose) then given our slightly harder run-in then liverpool have, I would be getting really worried.

    More importantly we'd be comfortably back where we belong.

    Marios a gooner at heart

    mario is all part of rodgers master plan..

    Make him play **** for the first half of the season = teams underestimate liverpool, and stop marking/focusing on balo..

    Let leash him in the 2nd half and tear up unsuspecting teams..

    Tonight is just the start

    I think the Pool result is the result we all wanted. We've yet to play Pool, Chelsea at home and Utd away so looking at it we should go on a good run from here though I can see palace being a tricky match as can the everton match.

    We have a run of fairly nice fixtures now until the away leg at Monaco on St Paddys Day.

    Not underestimating Middlesbrough though as they're on an excellent run of form at the moment, conceded 3 goals in their last 9 games including that clean sheet at City.

    would rather focus on getting top 4. the financial repercussions of not doing so (especially when there is more qualifying money next season too) will be heavy to us.

    in the long term top 4 > fa cup

    Ramsey's looks a bad'un. As Wenger said, stopping straight away is rarely a good sign.

    if we cant focus on doing both, then wenger should go right now, and we should all give up.

    Last year, with a weaker squad we managed both. no reason at all why a club as big as arsenal needs to focus on only one competition
