All these losses/draws against relegation fodder do not look good at all. When we look at Manure, they win most of the games they are expected to win. This is why the always have the edge. In our case what was the point of beating City when we lose to QPR, Balckburn and Wigan? We are simply not good enough. I would not be surprised at all if we managed to screw our ECL chances before the end of the season. We talk about major overhaul, but we have some dross making so much money that they would be nearly impossible to move. So much for Wenger's financial prudence!
I look at the games we drop points in and its the same every season with the lesser clubs, the fact is we just aint as good as we used to be and the other clubs have got better and smarter against our type of play.
Unless we bring in some real quality and get rid of the deadwood it will probably be the same again next season.
We have just forgotten how to win when it really matters and the points we have dropped in the last few weeks might come back to bite us on the backside.
Chelsea is a masive game and thankfully they have Barca next week so they will probably rest players, but we shouldn't rely on good fortunes to see us through to 3rd.
I just hope it doesn't go t.i.t.s up this transfer window and we end up with no one of note.
We could do with Frimpong back playing or someone like him who puts their foot in, and hard.
We are still missing that bit of steel thats needed.

Sorry Raider - AW's already lined-up his signings for next season:
Jack Wilshere, Abou Diaby & Per Mertesacker.
He's also decided that poor old Sebastien Squilacci has had so little playing time that he deserves an improved and extended contract to say sorry and knowing that we have a striker problem, if RVP gets injured, he's decided to give Nicolas Bedtner a big hug, drop on his knees, lick his shwang, say sorry for not playing him enough, beg him to come back and extend his contract as well with a big fat pay rise to boot to make up for being so nasty.
Don't ever let it be said we don't invest in the team!!
