    I do think we’ve got better at that actually.
    Did you see the West Ham game? We moved the ball forwards really well at times. We can’t finish for toffees and the lack of a top striker is a clear gap. But I actually think there’s a lot more purpose about this lot than in the later Wenger years where it was all sideways and backwards.

    What do you mean rationalising? Iím just saying we are miles behind the top 2.
    Are you disagreeing? How we got here is irrelevant.

    Given where we were last season what did you expect this season?

    Plenty of time to go over the season in the summer but for now just have to back the lads and hope for the best. Thereís a job to finish and you just pray for some composure to get us over the line.

    Spurs will win their last 2 so it really is all on the Newcastle game. Win or bust.
    They will. And thanks to Harry **** and VAR awarding the penalty today, we are probably buggered now. 😔

    We're a young side with a young manager. They'll make mistakes although it does sound like a couple of refereeing decisions went against us last night and that changed the game. With 2 games to go we're in the conversation for top 4 - it's actually in our hands. That's clearly a step up from anything we've seen over the last few seasons. If we miss out then that will be disappointing, but how realistic was Top 4 this season? The top 3 were pretty much nailed on at the start of the season and that only leaves one place. We might yet get it. I might change my view if we lose the last 2, but right now there seems to be more shape and purpose about the team. I'm not sure how far Arteta but I still think he's earned the right to try. Getting a new manager in now would just take us backwards.
    But, but....... it was against Spurs !?!>?! !?!?
