    Can you finish above Arsenal


    I have just started posting on these boards today and have noticed that a few of you have been 'putting it about' on the Arsenal board.

    As a gooner from south London (yeah I know) I am interested in hearing whether you really think you have the ability and depth this year to finish above us?

    • Yes, I always believe that you guys can break into the top 4 cos you have fantastic players...but it never really happen though under MJ. But still wanna see what JR can do...but after yesterday's performance against Roma...I think you guys can do it but won't be to our expenses cos we gonna be at least 2nd this year. LOLOL

      • Thanks ttkcs,

        Yes we do have a lot to prove in order to be worthy of attaining 4th place, but unlike devil_fish who does not seem to realise that in order to get ready for the new season by playing pre-season friendlies - we realise the significence & importance of preparing ourselves by winning all of our pre-season matches before a ball is kicked in anger in the EPL.

        Liverpool will be a stronger side this year with Keano in your squad - however I'm not sure about the "we're gonna finish 2nd part" - I would have said 3rd would be a more realistic target for you with a possible cup-final appearence ( maybe even against us LOL )!!

    • just looking through my crystal ball I see a scrap for relegation in May for some ......after all the grandiose spending....if you extrapolate 5th to 11th from last season if u add a further 6 this season where does that leave the spuds in ....don't think the spuds are good at maths either...

    • Hello Kevin,
      A civil question will always elicit a civil response mate.......
      Whilst I hate predicting end of season placings before its even begun ( I dont use the word 'never' which seems to be a favoured choice on your board!)..I will say this. I believe we are stronger than last year and also believe you are weaker than last season. Thats not to say the gap has closed enough for us to leapfrog you but i think it is closing.......only time will tell.
      Its as simple as that...........yeah there is a lot of banter over on your site at the moment and Iis fair to say I have dished my fair share but if you go back and read you will see I have only taken umbrage at th sad old churned out comments about us 'never' being as good as you.....only a fool will swallow that stuff.
      Over to you...

      • Well put Essex.

        Kevin - I'd like to think we could finish above the Gooners this season, but there's something about AW and how he can coax his team of youngsters to do well that makes you hard to beat. Also, our 5-1 CC semi victory us aside, we seem to have a mental block about being able to beat you, but I'm hoping that will change with our new signings and the general air of confidence we seem to have about us.

        All in all, it'll be an interesting season but like Essex I don't want to predict anything (likely it'd be the kiss of death!).

    • but thats the whole point essex yid......why U guys are never successful ...its the point I am trying to make I would have said you guys were cured if you'd said ....we are going to win the league...

      All U seem to care about is finishing above arsenal and thats why you never have!!!

      I don't know if you know anything about psychology....but U've just displayed a typical trait of an under achiever...

      they think they are better than they are.....they usually have grandiose plans of how things will get better and go over the top.....they are unable to perform when thje chips are down....they frequently self destruct.....does that ring a bell on any club and is fans anyone?

    • can i remind you that arsenal last year, got 39 points out of a possible 45 points from there first 15 matches, and they only finsihed 3rd in the table. this is why i have said your need at least 40 points come 1st of dec to even challenge for 4th spot. for any team to win prem this year, the min number of games to lose will be 3 or 4. thats how difficult it is to win.

    • no i dont use a crystal ball but i did win last year on 5 numbers and the bonus ball. won 42 large. fattend up my bank account. ok back to preds, your get to 8 this year. thats good and better than last year. dont forget you have bought at least 7 new players and they have to gel. forget freindlys, that dont mean alot in the prem. the real test is on the 16th. to challenge the top 4 your have to have at least 39points by 1st december, thats 12 wins and 3 draws. i have got you at 26 points by then. thats not enough.

    • the info is on wikipedia, your have to search though it dont just come up with info, i knew the first 3 seasons from 2008 down who was top of the table in december, then i had to check the rest by reading.

    • ''and your saying your get 4th spot''......hmm where did I say that? Can you show me?..........................
      Its YOU who wont get a CL spot.....read the thread to see why I think this.

      lol, sadboy, does that remind YOU of anyone's fans or team? the goons maybe? lol ;-)

    • trust me, your finish in the top 8 this year. much better than last season. you have got villa pompey city blackburn etc to get past before you can get to at least 5th spot.
