I'm not so sure about slim pickings. Games in hand to go above you for the last CL spot, still in the FA Cup and still (just) in the Carabao Cup.

I'll be there tomorrow night but I'd say it's probably a 5% chance we can turn them over in 90 minutes and a 20% chance that we can take it to extra-time, so I accept that in all likelihood we're going out.

Still, this season is promising so much more than it did a few months ago under Nuno.

I'll remind you of 9th September
When you were going to win the league and we were going to be relegated.

Quote:
Just popping in, chaps.

Spurs still top of the league - check.
Arsenal still rock-bottom without a goal - check.

All is well with the world.
It's a long old season though Sundays result could have a big say in who's fourth.

I'd have to say, yet again, Wenger was right.
Fourth is the equivalent of a trophy and if we can only win one of the next three matches I'll take Sunday please.

"When you were going to win the league and we were going to be relegated."

Hold on, hold on, I never said either of those things! You have to make hay while the sun shines, is all.

Totally outplayed last night. Shows the gulf between the top three and the rest of us. Fourth is still a bun-fight between 3-4 bang average teams but give me the FA Cup (still hope) or Carabao Cup (sob) over fourth all day long. You don't tell your grandkids about the day you finished fourth but a cup final win - those memories stay with you forever.

Now, I'm off to find my Liverpool shirt for tonight...

Be careful what you wish for! 😂 The problem with not being in Europe is it makes it harder to attract the top signings. If you look at Arsenal, the only reason we are in contention for 4th place is investment in the youth team. But if we want to challenge for the league we need some experience and whilst I think they will spend money on that, it's hard to attract it without the promise of CL football next season.

I can remember 11 FA cup wins out of a total of 14

...and the reason we don't bend our grandkids ears about finishing fourth is that we finished there or above 19 seasons in a row.

A long way to go (in a pretty poor game...) but I can't imagine your man Xhaka has done anything to change opinions..
What a dick.

It is a long way to go as you say, and teams have won with 10 men before, just very rarely us.

So far thankfully yes! 😂 I am impressed that we've managed to keep you at bay and also have a few chances, this is the kind of thing we are used to seeing being done to us.

It won't last though.
