    2 most missed players this year

    Why not Messi and Pique! Or Ronaldo and Carvalho! If one let's the imagination take flight it can be any ex or current World Class player(or ex Arsenal player)!

    What our team lacked this season was a set of balls! When the going got tough or the tough got going (read as good sides), we usually lost the plot and our nerves (usually in the reverse order) This team is capable of winning trophies. If they have the right mentality.

    So the question comes down to, what the f*ck is stopping them from doing that. And the answer at the moment is pretty simple, they have been bred on all talk and no action. Talk big before a match and then search for someone to blame after it!

    No one has accepted after a defeat, we scr*wed up. It is always the referee, the pitch, the unfair untalented teams, never the team Arsenal which fails! If you do no wrong how can you improve!

    As long as the team doesn't change their mindset, it will falter at the last hurdle. How many times this season have we blown away leads to lose or draw a match which we had no business letting slip? Count those point and we would be leading MU comfortably! And then count the points when MU drew or won matches where they seemed on the edge of defeat. Get the picture?

    Two players won't change our fortunes, as long as the rest of the players don't get their attitudes and mentality right. We need a wholesale change in the squad and players wanting to play for Arsenal and with the right attitude should be retained. Mourinho with our team would win us a lot. But we want to play pretty and qualify for the CL that's the clear goal at the start of every season. So why act disappointed when we are on the cusp of achieving this target! We should be used to this by now!! And as Wenger said second is not a bad result. Oops, forgot we aren't second anymore!!
