Europa league it is

in Sports Talk Social2 months ago

I'd have normally published this on my @arsenal4life account but I'm not in the mood to use my laptop. So for today I'll be ranting about Arsenal football club here.

Need to drop a disclaimer that this rant might be somewhat incoherent. I'm playing arms race mode in COD while drafting this piece.

Anyway, today was as fucked up as I kind of expected it to be. I honestly felt that a bad result against Spurs would most likely spell the end of our Champions league hope.

No need to look back but if we managed to get a draw against Spurs, we would have had a chance. At the end of the day, we lost again to Newcastle and this puts us at the back foot in the final game week.

We're now two points behind the Spursy ones and at this point, I have to admit that the champions league is as good as done for.

In fact, I'm pretty certain that we're going to lose against Everton on the last day, to cement our place in fourth. Spurs, on the other hand, will smash the already relegated Norwich and end the season 5 points ahead.

There won't be any end of season miracle and there won't be any drama at the end of the season. We fought hard and tried to punch above our weight but it was too much for us.

On the balance of play, we have to admit that we're where we deserve to be. In fact, even if we actually qualified for the champions league, we would have still ended up in the Europa league.

Man for man, Spurs and Arsenal are almost even but experience and the presence of Harry Kane and Son skews it in North London white's favour. On top of that, they've had a better all round season, evident in the goal difference.

We have to upgrade our squad, and bring in players that don't get injured when you need them. I mean, there's only so much magic you can do with a squad that relies on Elneny, Tavares, Nketiah, Cedric and Holding.

It's not an indictment on the input of the aforementioned players but let's face it, they're not UCL material. Perhaps Europa league is where we belong and hopefully, we go a long way in the tournament.

It's all good though. You win some and you lose some. Unfortunately we weren't good enough and we lost this battle.

Sort:  

You're not really a Spurs fan if you don't think that we could still fuck this up.

So long as we don't have a pre-match match meal of Lasagne again!

In fact, I want all our meals this week tested by the youth team before any of the first team squad go near them!

I don't want to believe that but even if you guys lose to Norwich, we're almost certainly going to lose to Everton

As in this fact just drowns me .

Hmmm, ARSENAL really disappointed their fans yesterday though... Who could have imagine that Newcastle of all clubs would defeat Arsenal it's hard to believe. After all the edge they had against Tottenham before the match, I think Arsenal was just unlucky. They could only hope for better next season, I think it's Europa league for Arsenal because Tottenham would not want to lose their chance against Norwich who is surely going to be relegated.

Anyways lets see how it goes...

I had high hopes the Gunners will qualify for the UCL, but they managed to let it slip away from their fingers, but I still commend them for coming out of the relegation zone and now among the top five. Good luck to them next season.

We're now two points behind the Spursy ones and at this point, I have to admit that the champions league is as good as done for. — it takes so much to blow a ballon , takes little or nothing to deflate it . Story of Arsenal’s season !

We have to upgrade our squad, and bring in players that don't get injured when you need them. — You’ve said it all honestly!
