    All too predictable

    Reading some of you on here, I don't know how the hell you're are going to continue on with your sour attitudes toward 'your' team, should they go on and do something remarkable by the end of the season. How will you stand up to the realisation that you were wrong? You cant plead ignorance or temporary loss of faith, because you have already shown these 'qualities' in abundance since the summer. There has been no support from you in any shape or form. You continually bleat like sheep about things, almost parrot like, each week. Nothing Arsenal can do is good enough. So what will you say to all the faithful supporters when they ask you why didnt you believe'? And there lays your predicament. I suppose the only answer for you is to pray that 'your' team fail as miserably as your faith. Because if they dont I wonder if any of you would sleep straight after. Possibly In your cases. Perhaps it would be a forlorn hope to expect you to apologies and admit that you were wrong. Personally I wouldn't bet against Arsenal. Strange things can happen toward the end of the season. For example do you remember the time everyone had written Liverpool off the last time they won the CL. 3 nil down at HT and you could have got 1000 to 1 for them. Ring any bells. There is still a very long way to go before the 'vultures of human failure' can move in and claim the carcass. But once again, I wouldn't bet on it. I've long since given up caring about anything you lot say on here..... after all you are, relatively speaking, 'little people' when it comes to Arsenal and what Arsenal has given to us in the passed. As for its history 'Victory from Harmony'. Mean anything??

    • Exactly where have you been the last seven years Dodge?

      The saddest part of it all is we're still going backwards.

      You might have faith in the present incumbents at Arsenal but you're in a minority with your mate Flabongrass.

    • Love all this rubbish about how taking off Oxlade-Chamberlain cost Arsenal the game. Chamberlain had a good game going forward but the lack of support he gave to Arsenal`s defenders was one of the reasons why United`s wingers had a field day.

    • You're fooling no one Gilly, you're obsessed with reading peoples posts on here, look how wound up you continually get!

      You're club is a joke now, Wenger is totally incompetent, you're completely bereft of ANY quality besides the injury prone Van Persie, and your sole objective every season now is to scrape 4th place,....which has been getting more difficult every year.

      This season? Impossible with this squad.

      United were in 3rd gear today, they even let you back in, just for fun. But it was so easy it was boring, and a bit sad when you think back to the mighty tussles we used to have!

      Get rid of Wenger and get someone in who is young and hungry. Its not rocket science, I've been saying the same sh*t correctly for 7 years, even dumb sh*ts like you can work it out.

      • Always try to look on the bright side Chump..; something a supporter of nothing but the sound of himself would ever understand. The mere fact that you responded to my post like that, suggests enough to me to warrant my disrespect...
        and do try to live with the awful realisation that the sky blues up the road in 'real' Manchester(not in a Industrial Park) are going to beat you at your own game this season and hopefully for many more to come..

    • I can see a lot of people on here moaning about Arsenal and most of them are not true supporters and in some cases support other clubs.
      If your going to support your club, then bloody well support them.
      Oxlade coming off didn't loose us the game, sure he had a good game and asked lots of questions of the utd defence but everyone is looking for an escape goat in AW.
      Arshavin could easily have come on and made a difference, but he didn't. We all accept that Arsenal are thin on the ground with quality in depth and yes something needs to be done but buying 4 world class player in January ain't gonna happen, so deal with it. Anyone who comes in has to be better then what we have and if they are from overseas they need at least half a season to adapt so where will the players come from. The type of players we want are still in the CL and wont leave or have a price tag that is unrealistic.
      How do you think we would have fared had we had a full strength team out because when that day comes we would give any of the top 4 a run for there money.

      • How is moaning about poor decision making and crap players not supporting your team?

        You AKB sheep are pretty thick really, aren't you?

      • "How do you think we would have fared had we had a full strength team out because when that day comes we would give any of the top 4 a run for there money." -yes but other clubs do it with a squad as they accept injuries are part and parcel of the game - something arsenal fans dont seem to understand

      • Yes, and destructive fans support Wenger no matter what.

        Our level of second tier players is so thin that we no longer need world class players to improve our squad.

        Look at Santos, hardly a world class left back yet he improved our squad since he has qualities and is a decent player.

        If have moved for Wayne Bridge on a loan deal, he would do a better job than Vermaelen as make shift LB.

        Arteta, hardly a world class player, has shown what experience can bring to our squad, and his absence has cost us. Can you imagine what the experience of Scott Parker could have done for us? Hardly a world class player.

        Wenger persists in playing players that have no future at the club like Djourou and Arshavin and holds back players that possibly do have a future. Why did Ox only at this stage of the season get a meaningful start? We all know Gervinho would be missing for the ACN! So why not play the kid before now?

        Nice arguable did a better job than Djourou in the second half.

        Benayoon has shown more ambition in his work rate than Arshavin so why didn't he come in? We knew our backs were inexperienced and need more help from midfield than Arshavin typically brings.

        The last two and possibly three loses could have been avoided had we got on loan any half way decent backs yet we didn't.

        We all seem to know, including Wenger, that Chamakh is not the answer to our lack of goals outside of RvP yet nothing structurally has been done to alleviate the burden from RvP. This burden is starting to show.

        4th place is still possible but with a manger like Wenger it is unlikely, and if we do secure CL football for next year it won’t be because of Wenger but it will be despite the unacceptable risks this man takes with the future of the club.

        He should make an effort to move on the Squils, Djourou’s and Chamakh’s of the world and make an effort to sign a few half way decent players instead.
