    Oh well, the Stoke or West Brom would be delighted to get 4 or 5 draws in a row.

    It's a matter of perspectives.

    Damn it... who am I trying to fool? I'm so sad :'(

    Wasn't aware you were a gooner. But then again how would I be - I'd be quiet if Chelsea were having your season

    Gooner... soon to be a goner, lol

    I've been reading how the finances will be affected without the champions league money, and it's quite scary.

    The board are adopting and suffering from a "protectionist" strategy.

    It's looking like Villa will finish 4th, as much as Villa deserve it I think this will be shame!

    Arsenal play such lovely football, if Wenger woke up and bought a couple of battleing mid-fielders to give the squad a bit of a backbone they'd be real contenders!

    If you were Ceas Fabregas why would you stay?

    I would stay if I were him, if and only if they bring a Gattuso style defensive midfielder to guard my back.

    And yeah, it's a shame... that front line with Vela, Arshavin, Van Persie & Co. is beautiful, simply beautiful.

    Arsenal have a "long term" plan and I'm sure it will stand them in good stead in years to come. Unfortunately they don't have a "short term" plan, at least not one that involves winning anything

    As Wenger said yesterday, the fans are becoming impatient but when you have a long term project focused on youth, things may not happen in the short term...

    Things are definitely NOT happening in the short term.

    they have had way to many injuries this year to be contenders, even for 4th place it seems. now that villa have only the league to concentrate on i can't see why they won't finish 4th.

    if arsenal keeps all their good players and buy a couple of defensive players plus maybe one squad attacking midfielder while avoiding any major injuries they will be a lot closer to utd and chelsea next year.

    i think they are a young team at the moment and just need to give them a couple of years and they will win everything
