    All too predictable

    Was any of it a surprise?

    -Djourou in over his head.
    -Wenger poor substitutions.
    -Lack of transfer market activity cost us because we had no real options at full back. A loan deal for a LB could have kept Djourou out of the game.
    -Arshavin continues to be played and costs us
    -Our best player RVP starting to get worn out and finding it difficult to hide his frustration with the Manager.
    -Man U attacking our obvious weakness, having the better game plan
    -No one scores but RVP
    - the second part of the season implosion

    All of the above sadly predictable.

    • You know me Mar. It was no surprise at all.

      I dare anyone to say they were shocked at the loss. The only saving grace was the scoreline wasn't a disaster. Nevertheless, any positive attitude the players had will now be on the wane, which will no doubt mean that our second half of the season implosion will be along shortly.

      Top six anyone?

      • 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??

      • Top 6 did you say?...well at least most AFC fans are now accepting the reality...Top 4 is definitely out of our reach except of course Chelsea implodes.....and they don't have that history..

        we are generally poorer in the run in I expect Liverpool to to over overtake us....if we implode like the end of last season we may not even get a europa league spot...

        Maybe thats whats got to happen to change things at this club...

    • Piers Morgan summed it well on Fox. Wenger cost us the game today when he replaced the Ox with Arshavin. We are on a downward spiral and I shudder to think where it might all end.

    • You whining on is 'predictable' that's for sure.
