    Wow, they don't half cut Rashford some slack in the commentary.

    True. But gooners have 8 games left, 5 away. 4 of them are against teams in the upper/middle part of the table (lowest of those 4 is Everton, in 11th). They haven't won any away games against teams in the top half, infact they have only won 2 games against teams outside the relegation zone (P11, W2, D4 L5 against teams above 18th place). Their other away game is at Burnley -- that won't be easy for them either.

    We have 8 games left, 5 of them at our new home. All 5 are against teams outside of the top 8 -- and we have won every home game against teams outside of the top 8 this season.

    So get your popcorn ready for some Arsenal Fan TV classics over the next couple of months.

    Like your optimism , but some of them sides will be on the beach no doubt. Scum got it easier than us on paper in my opinion.

    Normally I’d be with you but Spurs have destroyed me faith last few months we’ve been pitiful.

    Put my mind somewhat at ease with this post however the run in and pressure that it brings can turn things on their head

    Arsenal are sloppy so they don’t bother. Man U look back to thier old selves today.
    Chelsea, one man team.

    Still all to play for imho

    And statistically teams take time to get home advantage in new stadia. Maybe it will be different for us as its in the same place and feels similar. But there maybe some acclimitisation. Hopefully Poch gets them training there. Or makes them all pitch tents and sleep there or something :)

    I reckon they will do some training on the replica pitch they have at the training ground to get acclimatized.

    Add in the CL run and the off field issues (Hugo, son, stadium), I'll take that

    The 9 defeats is a concern. But looks worse as a stat than reality because we have zero draws.

    Trust Arsenal to fcuk up our record. Although they were give a golden opportunity to keep the run going.

    They must have been celebrating on their Instataco, or teletext, or tacotagram or whatever the fudge it’s called, accounts all night long.

    They finally drew against the ‘undrawables’

    Burnley are lucky buggers.
    Leicester down to 10 men and should be 1 up!
    Crazy start!
