2 Prizes; 4 Teams; 5 Games; 29 Days

- 2 CL places up for grabs

- 4 teams in contention

- 5 games to play

- 29 days left of the season

Well it all comes down to a nervous final month of the EPL season.

Given our awful start to the season we find ourselves in a far more favourable position then we could have realistically hoped for, Arsène has almost pulled another rabbit out of his hat.

It’s (almost) a given that the 1st and 2nd places will go to Manchester so lets concentrate on the 3rd and 4th positions.

Arsenal’s run in:

Wigan (h)

Chelsea (h)

Stoke (a)

Norwich (h)

WBA (a)

Spurs’ run in:

Bolton (a)

QPR (a)

Blackburn (h)

Aston Villa (a)

Fulham (h)

Newcastle’s run in:

Chelsea (a)

Stoke (h)

Wigan (a)

Man C (h)

Everton (a)

Chelsea’s run in:

Newcastle (h)

Arsenal (a)

QPR (h)

Liverpool (a)

Blackburn (h)

Currently we have:

3rd Arsenal 64 pts.

4th Spurs 59 pts.

5th Newcastle 59 pts.

6th Chelsea 57 pts.

Only 7 points between the four teams with 15 points left to play for.

On paper Spurs have the easiest run in but QPR away will not be easy (as we found out) and Aston Villa away may prove to be a handful.

In their last 8 games Spurs have managed to win only  6 out of the 24 points – so let’s hope the rot has started to set in.

Newcastle has an onerous looking run in and may be fortunate to get  6/7 points out of 20.

Chelsea have by far the toughest remaining schedule and with FA and CL Cup commitments complicating things they may end up 5th.

That leaves the Gunners – last but never least – we should finish in a CL position and my earnest hope is that it’s the automatic 3rd spot.

What are your thoughts??

  1. Benny from Lagos Nigeria says:

    Gunners are going to finish 3rd

  2. goonermichael says:

    Great post . I think we’ll get third. I think we’ll get at least a draw against Wigan. Wigan’s style will suit us and we’ve been very good at home even when we went through our bad patch.

  3. Big Raddy says:

    Gn5. Thank you – it saves me spending time looking it all up.

    As I understand it we need 10 points to guarantee CL qualification, given the highly unlikely assumption Spurs and Newcastle win all their games.

    I think if we can get 8 points from the final 5, we will finish 3rd, which is remarkable seeing we have lost 9 games already.

    Furthermore, just 5 more points will be an improvement on last season.

  4. Rasp says:

    Thanks GN5, nice to see all the options laid out before us.

    You are the king of the stats so I’m a little cautious stepping into your territory, but I think I am right in saying that although we’ve lost 9 games already, it’s the fact that we’ve had the fewest draws (therefore more straight wins) for many a season that has got us up to 3rd.

  5. MickyDidIt89 says:

    GN5,
    A great Sunday Post. Thank you.
    Its a given in my book thatwe will finsish 3rd, so all I am really doing is looking at the others and trying to engineer results for Toon to finish 4th. Let’s see, Spuds lose them all. That’s tidy and simple. The next bit is quite tricky.

  6. goonermichael says:

    we are on exactly the same points as we were last season

  7. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Rasp,
    What’s a gay win?

  8. Rasp says:

    Hi Micky,

    Best case scenarios now are:
    manu win the prem (Na$ri wins nothing)
    the chavs win the FA cup
    Barca humiliate the chavs in the CL but lose in the final
    we finish 3rd
    toon get 4th but fail to get out of the CL knockout stage
    the chavs and tots end up playing on Thursday nights.

  9. Rasp says:

    gay win? – who what where?

  10. luc says:

    We will finish 3rd, think we wil collect our next 6 pts at home, the trouble is stoke away.

  11. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Rasp,
    The moment has passed, but in response to “(therefore more straight wins)”.

  12. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Must outside now.
    Certainly back for the game. Happy sundays all.

  13. Rasp says:

    :lol: you’re too sharp for me Micky

  14. chas says:

    Thanks for the detail, GN5.
    I can only think of it as one game at a time. My predictions are useless. :)

    The semis are decided on pens I assume so we can’t even hope for a replay. In which case, extra time would be nice.

  15. chas says:

    Is a ‘gay win’ when you come from behind?

  16. TotalArsenal says:

    GiE, no we did not go to Porthcurno and the Minack Theatre, but thanks for the tip! Looks fantastic :)

    Loved the video Micky. I have a painting at home called ‘storm clouds over Port Isaac’ (by an East-Anglia based painter), so I went to see Port Isaac last year to find out from which angle the painting was painted. Great place. Do you know whether the song they were singing in the video is a ‘prisoners song’?

    It would be great if we can finish third. Arsenal are not there yet and another win is needed against Wigan. Wouldn’t it be great if NU finish fourth, in front of the second and third best team in London?! :)

    I remember Rasp and many others being very annoyed about us ‘dropping’ two valuable points against NU in our first game of the season. Who would have thought both teams could finish in the top-4 by the end of the season?

  17. TotalArsenal says:

    Chas :) brilliant!

  18. goonermichael says:

    What about “gender reassigned” Wins or “bi” for that matter. I thought this was an inclusive blog.

  19. Kunle odu says:

    Arsenal to secure 3rd spot while newcastle for 4th spot. Totinham nd chelsea out of champions league spot

  20. TotalArsenal says:

    A straight win is one with strictly no man-love (to the big disappointment of VCC and Big Randy who appear to fancy Bacary) :)

  21. TT says:

    Should that be “Big Raddy”? Although admittedly “Big Randy” goes better with the topic :-)

  22. Strus says:

    Final points should be near that:
    Arsenal 74,5
    Tottenham 68,2
    Chelsea 66,5
    Newcastle 65
    I know these are not integer, but it is statistical mean.

    Very tight. One slip/upset from any team fighting for the 4th means out of the race.
    If Newcastle can maintain ther current run and win against Chelsea and Everton, they will be 4th.

  23. Big Raddy says:

    Very slow Rasp……

    I take nothing for granted, if we achieve 3rd it will be an enormous achievement.

    If we take 8 more points it would have been enough to take 2nd last season

  24. TotalArsenal says:

    TT, you are totally right. It should be Big Raddy, but somebody called him Big Randy by mistake a while ago and he quite liked it. Big Randy lives in Denmark where everybody is randy (not much else to do then having sex all the time), so ‘Big Randy’ is very appropriate indeed! :lol:

  25. TotalArsenal says:

    Strus, good stuff! Any ‘mean-statistical’ idea what will happen with the bottom three i.e. who will drop out?

  26. Big Raddy says:

    Strus. On what do you base your figures?

  27. GunnerN5 says:

    Rasp @11:04.

    Very astute observation Rasp, this season we have tied just 4 games – the last time we tied so few was in 1939/40 when we tied just 1 game.

  28. Strus says:

    My base in DecTech match simulator
    CastrolFootball uses this engine.

    I’ve put fixtures match by match there and then worte down in Excel to summarize.
    Deviation from expected points in the last 3 matches:
    Totenham -2,4 points
    Arsenal -0,1 points
    Chelsea +1,4 points
    Newcastle +4,5 points

    I don’t want to waste time with relegetaion battle. Only Arsenal counts ;-)

  29. Big Raddy says:

    Since Bacary returned to the team we have played 11 PL games

    W 9 D 1 L 1.

  30. RockyLives says:

    Is a hermaphroditic win one where you score an own goal?

  31. RockyLives says:

    Thanks for laying it all out Gn5
    I’m not really worried about Stoke away. The Orcs will be planning their summer holidays when we play them and, in any case, we’re not so easily bullied these days.

    I have real high hopes for Toon to get the 4th spot. They have momentum, and also some really good players in rich form. I could easily see them doing the Chavs and Everton. They could be Citeh too if the blue Mancs have blown the league by then.

    Did I read somewhere that, from next season, we’ll only have three CL places up for grabs in the EPL? Can any one illuminate?

  32. Afternoon all, good to see thew terminal position possibilities laid out there so starkly there N5.

    Can I be the first to put myself down fro the “AA’ers at the Tavern” for tomorrow widget ?
    I’m aiming to get there for 6.15ish to get thoroughly sozzled due to Wigan no longer appearing to be the push overs I had them down to be when I got the ticket to the game.

  33. Gooner In Exile says:

    Bloody ell I thought I was Statto but Strus is making me scratch my head in puzzlement.

    GN5 thanks for the summary of the last 5 games, based on swings so far we will finish on 75 points. As Rasp pointed out earlier, we have already lost one more game than we did in the whole of last season but are level on points. That’s all because we have turned draws into wins, Dippers away, Shitty home, Newcastle home all could have easily ended as draws but the team found a goal to win it. And that’s what we need to carry in to next season.

    Can someone remind me the name of the Turkish restaurant next to the Tavern? Hope to eat there tomorrow before the game.

  34. RockyLives says:

    TA
    Sounds like you had a brilliant holiday. I love that part of Cornwall and have spent a lot of time around Boscastle, Port Isaac, Padstow and Rock. St Ives too.
    Wouldn’t mind living there one day, but only if the Dididts don’t move to Canada :)

  35. Rasp says:

    Hi GiE,

    It’s called Yildiz and is about 6 doors down from the Tavern.

    chary, hope to see you at the Tavern tomorrow, I’ll put the widget up in a while.

  36. RockyLives says:

    I just when back and read the pre-New Post comments from earlier this morning.

    I have been crying with laughter. All I can say is Micky, BR, evonne and Chas, thank you. What a brilliant way to start a Sunday.

    As for the singing jolly-tack-tars, that clip sent shivers down my spine (or was it me timbers?). I have sat in the pub in Port Isaac with some of those blokes for their weekly singsong. It’s magical. Very happy memories.

  37. Rasp says:

    Hi Rocky, great place Port Isaac – you probably know it’s the location for Doc Martin. In my view the most scenic (next to Polperro) of the Cornish coastal villages.

    Have you been to Mevagissey? It used to be a great place to watch the trawlers unloading their catch but I gather the fishing fleet is all but extinct.

  38. Best Egbiremhon says:

    From d table,we can afford to drop 5 point n end still finish on par with Tot n N. Castle..that is hoping they don’t drop any point at all..and of the four teams fighting,we are in d best of form I guess (9 wins from 10)..N. Castle n chelsea still av to meet…if the boys can stay focused which am sure dey will,We have 3rd place to ourselves…

  39. RockyLives says:

    Redders
    Include me in (as Sam Goldwyn used to say) for your one-legged jump experiment to discombobulate the Spuds when they shoot :)

  40. RockyLives says:

    Morning Rasp
    I don’t really know Megavissey. I used to stay with a friend in Boscastle – a really talented artist. Sadly he died last year. He was a wonderful singer and sang every week with those Port Isaac fellows.

    I also had a curious fondness for Launceston, this odd, slightly bleak town on the Moors.

  41. Rasp says:

    Yes I know Launceston. What a shame Jamaica Inn has been reduced to a tacky tourist attraction. A few years ago when the kids were younger I played the talking tape of Jamaica Inn in the car on our drive down to Cornwall, it really set the scene for those bleak moorland areas.

  42. RockyLives says:

    Best
    You hit the nail on the head: “if the boys can stay focussed”.
    They didn’t against QPR and it cost us. Wigan tomorrow will be an important game.

    If we can win that, then beat the Chavs in the early kick-off on Saturday, we’ll be 11 points ahead of the Spuds before they start their game :)

  43. RockyLives says:

    Jamaica Inn is a real let down.

    Fortunately, you don’t have to wander far into the moors to taste the air of mystery and moodiness.

  44. Rasp says:

    Yep and Land’s End is also a big disappointment. How can we have let the famous southerly tip of Britain fall into commercial hands? It should be owned by the National Trust.

  45. goonermichael says:

    I had dinner in Megavissey a couple of years ago with my wife. It absolutely poured down. Nice resturant though. Corwall is a lovely part of the world. I love Kynance cove.

  46. Rasp says:

    Dollar Cove near Helston is also worth a visit – so named because a galleon carrying bullion ran aground offshore and gold doubloons are occasionally washed up on the beach.

  47. RockyLives says:

    The best thing about Cornwall is that it really does have echoes of ages past, which is why those fishermen are so appealing.

    If you’ve ever wandered round the remote bits as it’s getting dark you won’t be so quick to dismiss things like piskies…

  48. RockyLives says:

    Helston – isn’t that where they do the “burning barrels” festival?

  49. goonermichael says:

    Peter de savory fucked up Lands end. went there and it was complete bollocks. So tacky

  50. Rasp says:

    Dunno Rocky, it has a naval station, RNAS Culdrose nearby from where the air sea rescue helicopters operate

  51. RockyLives says:

    Anyway, we’d better start talking about football again or we’ll scare everyone away.

    I take it we all want the Chavs to win today after extra time (as the lesser of two smelly evils)?

  52. RockyLives says:

    Rasp
    I think I’m muddling it up with Ottery St Mary.

  53. goonermichael says:

    I wanted Everton to win the cup but that’s gone tits up. Any of the other three is unbearable.

  54. Big Raddy says:

    RL. It takes longer to get to THOF from Cornwall than it does from here. Best to move close to Peaches and Rasp – long way from the sea though.

    I once did the cross-Cornwall coast to coast walk. Beautiful

  55. TERRY MANCINI HAIR TRANSPLANT says:

    Thanks GN5, i dont have to look at the fixtures or any stats to know we will get 3rd spot, ive thought 3rd since the Chelsea game. Shame about our summer, if we had not had a terrible pre season we might have been in the mix for the title, but we will make up for it next season when we win the league and champions league double.

    Every one seems to have gone Cornish crazy today, except Cornwall, whos not around but is crazy anyway. Going against the tide, the more i hear of the place the more wary i become. Ive seen the Wicker Man, Terry is to good looking to be sacrificed to some pagan God. what ever you think of the muggers, looters, thieves, con artists and other associated delights of London, at least they wont sacrifice me so there crops have a good one.

  56. 1tourettesgooner says:

    Nice post GN5,
    After what I still think was a shambles of a Summer TW, I expected 5th ,6th or 7th, so to get 4th would be astonishing, 3rd means Arsene likes to take casual walks across water hand in hand with Dennis.
    Yesterday, my job took me to Charlestown ( Tall Ships in dock ), Mevagissey, Rock ( sell your house there Rasp and you might be able to afford a Beach Hut ) and Port Isaac, It`s a hard life down here !. Best beach imo, Constantine Bay. Cadwith Cove is very pretty ( unusual that it has Thatched cottages dotted around the harbour ), when i first went there, I thought I had stepped back in time, It was so old looking and they all sat around telling old tales whilst stroking their long beards, I suppose it takes allsorts but I prefer my women clean shaven .

  57. RockyLives says:

    Hello Terry :)

    I think the Wicker Man was up in Scotland somewhere, so GLiC should be safe for the time being.

    Unless the lezzer piskies get him :)

  58. Aidan Collins says:

    Arsenal 3rd
    Newcastle 4th
    Chelsea 5th
    Spurs 6th
    Liverpool 10th

  59. oz gunner says:

    cheers for the post G5, now i know whats on the table finishing third looks a done deal.

    @ Micky

    Thanks for the port isaac’s fishermans friends clip. Love it. It’d be great drinking at a pub with them and signing the night away. I know what i’ll be listening to for my morning run tomorrow.

  60. Terry,
    If you pop down here I`ll look after you, I`ll keep you away from the Inbreds. I`ve been here over 20 years now and I`m still looked upon as a cockney bastard who pushed the house prices up so locals cant afford to buy and shags their women ( only the clean shaven ones, but I bet your telescope is playing havoc at the thought of the bearded ones ! ).

  61. I played 5 a side on Thursday night and done both my calfs again, so I went to the Doctors and he checked me and found that my right calf Is 3 cm`s bigger than my left one, so i`ve got to exercise ( calf raises ) the left one, but in the mean time to help my balance, Mrs glic whacks my left nut with a club hammer to even things out , maybe I should just give up the football !.

  62. TERRY MANCINI HAIR TRANSPLANT says:

    Hi Rocky, i get in a cold sweat as soon as i pass the M25. hahahaha.

    Cornwall, at least that Wicker bloke got sacrificed by some top women, i think Ingrid Pitt was one of them so Raddy would probably be begging for it. Now what have i got to look forward to if i ever venture down there?…..sacraficed by some old hags with beards? You should work for the Cornwall tourist board.

    “Come to Cornwall and experience the delights of a bygone English heritage. Your travel guides will be Cornwall and Didit, who after getting you copiously high on some strange cornish mushroom, will leave you out to dry on some wierd moorland, and thats when the fun realy begins. You will be accosted by burly men with beards, knocked unconsious, and then handed over to some burly bearded women to burn you alive. Dont miss this fantastic opportunity, book now to enjoy the pleasures of the hirsuit, followed by a damn good Roasting”

  63. oz gunner says:

    Don’t go Terry, it’s a trap to lure you there. This video shows you what GLIC’s home town is really like, with the ghost of GLIC leading the way! You’ve been warned!

  64. TERRY MANCINI HAIR TRANSPLANT says:

    Oz, Christ, thats scared the crap out of me, so glad ime in London. Ime going out, and the first mugger that i see ime giving them a great big sloppy kiss. hahahaha

  65. Terry,
    I always fancied Madeline Smith, I think that was her In chas`s video being Lesbianised by Ingrid Pitt , damn, women are so lucky !.
    There Is a job here waiting for you, I`ve got too many clients with my “Feels on Wheels ” business, I need help, your Greek Demi – God good looks will be a hit with cornish wenches, gargling of Greek Yoghurt is their speciallity !.
    I hope Rocky Isn`t being put off with a view to moving here !. :)

  66. oz gunner says:

    hahaha Terry they can steal your money but you’ll always steal their innocence and dignity!

  67. Nice one Oz, I`ve been to a few of them Cornish Barn Dance`s, when you get over here, I`ll get you an invite !.

  68. Bayonne Jean says:

    Gunners 3rd. The hoped-for order for the rest: Geordies; Chavs; LWCs. The likely for the rest: LWCs; Chavs; Geordies. Best hope for the Geordies is that ManU and Citeh draw, Citeh thus out of it, so Citeh would tank their next game at St. James.

  69. Bayonne Jean says:

    What about bottom of the table? Wolves are dead; who do you PREFER to see go down? Easy — QPR and Villa, because of their loathsome managers. Would most like to see Bolton (play decent style of football, plus good place to get Arsenal youth EPL time) and Wigan (again, football the right way). Even Blackburn has some merit — comic relief with Paul Robinson in goal, and also fun to watch an EPL side physically resembling a pub team (Yakubu et al.)

    Prediction: Blackburn and QPR to go down, with QPR having murderous run in (LWC; Chavs; Stoke; Citeh)

  70. Red Arse says:

    Have been watching M’Gladbach/Cologne and have to say Podolski has looked decidedly average. Time to change your mind Arsene? :-)

    Have an uncle who lives in Rock (opposite PadstoweStein). Love the estuary beaches, and the surrounding area including the surfing.

    Ghost of Garlic, :-) I thought you were supposed to be a good boy now? Anyway, it’s good to see you back!! :-)

    Rocky, sorry you mistook my heavy handed attempt at self deprecating humor as a complaint yesterday. :-) My Posts are crap and my comments are not much better. I am trying to convince myself to take the hint! :-)

    GN5, Nice idea for a Post, well done! :-)

  71. Red Arse says:

    Bayonne Jean,

    Liked your comment! :-)

    Where are you based? Bayonne New Jersey, or Bayonne, France?

    Or wherever? :-)

  72. Red Arse says:

    Yeah, OK — I will take the hint!! :-)

  73. evonne says:

    GM – do you still hate any of the ManU players, except for Evra, Skoles and Giggs? Oh, and Shrek of course. I just cannot stand Evra, Skoles and Giggs are too good footballers to dislike

  74. evonne says:

    GLic and RA – leopards and spots :) Hi Glic

  75. evonne says:

    GN5 – I am so sorry, forgot to thank you for the post, and a very good post it is indeed.
    I cannot see us not finishing 3rd, it would be a huge disappointment. Newcastle 4th be a dream for use and a nightmare for Scum and Chavs, lovely

    Cannot see Villa doing anything today :(

  76. evonne says:

    here we go again, an early penalty to settle Fergie’s nerves

  77. goonermichael says:

    Sure it’s not fixed

  78. goonermichael says:

    Anyone who wants this shower of dogturd to win wants thier brains tested. Why is buying worse than cheating?

  79. robbin says:

    wrestlemania XXII is more realistic..they dont call em “manUre fc.” for nothing, how bout mancheaters united…

  80. Rasp says:

    In the Women’s Champions League it’s goalless at half-time at Borehamwood in the the first leg of Arsenal’s semi-final against German side Frankfurt

  81. robbin says:

    theyre both buying…same shit

  82. RockyLives says:

    Was it a fair pen?

  83. goonermichael says:

    Rocky. No another dive by ashley young.

  84. Rasp says:

    The FA should impose a retrospective red card on Ashley Young for his second dive in as many games – disgraceful. I wanted him at Arsenal but after that behaviour I wouldn’t touch him. It was different with Bobby – he was an artiste ;)

  85. goonermichael says:

    Hope someone breaks his leg.

  86. robbin says:

    when is it ever fair when sir alex f**kuson is involved…ashley young dives like clark kent in blue spandex

  87. robbin says:

    why do i call him sir…when he is the grime underneath my toe nails

  88. TERRY MANCINI HAIR TRANSPLANT says:

    Ashley Young is a disgrace. I apologise in advance to any animal rights activists, but he goes down now like a shot pheasant….but unlike the poor bird the horrible bleeder gets up again.

  89. Gooner In Exile says:

    And I know there was contact but Ashley Young spread both legs wide in the dive/tumble to make sure it was there.

    They keep talking about established PL players going to the Olympics but someone needs to amend the memo and tell them it’s for football not to accompany Tom Daley off the high boards.

    Rasp thanks for the name, it’s in the memory bank now. Me and Mrs GiE will see you all in the Tavern….or Yildiz if anyone’s eating.

  90. robbin says:

    carricks tackle from behind? cleaning up the ankles….why not red?

    can we get a worldwide petition for video technology please….im gonna throw up again…

  91. Rasp says:

    It’s made all the worse by the fact that Young used to play for Villa – they’ll hate him forever after that blatant cheating.

  92. TERRY MANCINI HAIR TRANSPLANT says:

    GM, robbin, Young brings the game into disrepute, and that annoys the hell out of me. It is also a timely reminder, for any one thats softened there stance in recent years, what a total bastard Ferguson is by indulging this nonsense.

  93. nmcmaho1 says:

    @ Rasp

    is there a few ‘HOT’ players on their team? or are they all ‘DOGS’?

    I’ll get my coat

  94. oz gunner says:

    @ Rasp

    is there a few ‘HOT’ players on their team? or are they all ‘DOGS’?

    I’ll get my coat

  95. TotalArsenal says:

    I predict a draw at Old Toilet today. Justice will be done!

  96. evonne says:

    scholes has done his knee, good

  97. Rasp says:

    We can’t want citeh to win the prem. Na$ri alone is enough reason, but there is also the fact that still only 4 (?) teams have won it.

  98. goonermichael says:

    He’s scum robbin.

  99. goonermichael says:

    I want City to win it. They don’t cheat like those red scum and they play much better football. Nasri is a better human being than young, giggs or rooney ever will be

  100. robbin says:

    sorry rasp, disagree..not only do united buy titles with bent refs but they also decide which clubs go down through their favourable desicions….this has got to stop and we all make it justifiable by putting on the blinkers…ferguson is “cancer” to the EPL

  101. TERRY MANCINI HAIR TRANSPLANT says:

    Stuff them both. Next season we will do them, and it will be the beggining of an era of Arsenal dominance. Ime so confident of winning the title next year, that if we dont i will book into GM’s and get my hair permed.

  102. 26may1989 says:

    I’ve just switched on and seen Young’s dive – bloody outrageous. If a player other than Suarez deserves some physical attention, I’m sorry to say it’s Ashley Young. In fact, Young is even more cynical a diver than Suarez.

    But what happens when the two (ex United) pundits discuss it at HT? About as strong as it gets is Ray Wilkins saying Young will get himself a reputation. Dwight “I’ll say whatever I need to to keep getting this Sky TV gig” Yorke says it’s a good penalty. These people are just so utterly sycophantic, they can’t bear to say something that would upset Ferguson, absolutely nauseating.

  103. goonermichael says:

    yorke is an absolute retard though. his IQ must be close to a monkey.

  104. robbin says:

    from all the coke he hoovered whilst playing for sydney fc, back with his mate bosnich…

    white line fever they call it

  105. Gooner In Exile says:

    That’s doing a disservice to monkeys GM, I’d suggest more closer to a goldfish.

    I’m sorry chaps, but statistics are a bit passé for me. Fortunately, I am able to time travel…I know what you are going to say ’doesn’t that rather take the fun out of the game’. No, not if you are selective. Anyway, I’ve seen the end of season table and all I can say to my fellow Gooners is, relax it’s in the bag! I will not give any more details encase I over excite Big Randy.

    Thanks for the post GN5.

    I reckon it’ll fall like this:

    Arsenal WDDWW 75
    Spurs WDWWW 72
    Chelsea WDWDW 68
    Newcastle LWDLD 64

    With Chlsea and Stoke to follow, beating Wigan is very, very important.

    Bayonne Jean @ 3:38pm: Completely agree about your preferred teams to get relegated and your predictions. But have to disagree re Paul Robinson: he’s been one of the best keepers in the PL this year (well, he does get a lot of shooting practice). His “comedy” issues go back to that backpass Gary Neville needlessly played towards goal and which then hit a divot as Robinson was about to kick while under pressure. Not his fault! He is a bit of a tool though, I’ll give you that.

    Aston Villa have to be one of the worst sides around, how Bolton, Wigan, Blackburn and QPR aren’t above them is a bit of a mystery. Surely Darren Bent wouldn’t want to stick around with this rubbish?

    Adebarndoor started going down before any contact and Cech was trying to get out of the way.

    It could be a red, but it would be a bit harsh.

  135. Gooner In Exile says:

    Right ITV Commentary moron Beglin does it again!

    So what that they scored, so what that a foul wasn’t given, it is still a denial of a goal scoring opportunity, it is still a red card…surely?

    If I score a goal and in the process someone comes through me over the top and cuts me in two, is it still a red card? Yes.

    Anyway probably better that Chavs keep 11 on and Cahill replaces the loony Luiz (hope its not too bad).

    Shocking decision by Atkinson for the second goal, how that guy is reefing the semi final after seeing Balotelli’s assault but deciding it wasn’t a foul let a lone a red card is a complete mystery.

  136. RockyLives says:

    Mind you, it would be quite funny if the score stays the same and the Spuds go out to a non goal.

    Agree with Robbin though – the FA are making the English game a laughing stock at the moment with their refusal to retrospectively look at incidents.

  137. Gooner In Exile says:

    Ok 4th official has confirmed laws, i was wrong!

    As you say Exile, play on after a foul denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity and it’s a retrospective yellow for the offender; stop the game and it’s a red (as with Lehmann in Paris). Different if the red card offence is something else (violent conduct etc), in which case it’s red in any event, and referees aren’t meant to play the advantage in the first place.

    RA,
    Saw your Podolski comment. I am very worried at the prospect of signing him. All I can say is that he is better than the present back up strikers, but in my opinion, not the type of player we want and nowhere near good enough to play alongside Robin or as a replacement should he get a long term injury.

  213. 26may1989 says:

    Re diving, aside from fans all getting het up whenever there’s one of these blatant incidents, like dealing with any wrongdoing, it’s all about detection and punishment. If offences aren’t dealt with, there’s only an incentive to carry on, especially when so many dives yield the goods in terms of penalties and free kicks; it’s just human nature. So whether it’s against Villa, QPR, Man City, Montenegro, Argentina or anyone else, Young (and Suarez, Rooney, Busquets, Owen etc) will feel they should carry on.

    Many assume FIFA and UEFA get in the way of dealing with the problem. Wrong. There are two not so important leagues, the A-League in Oz and the MLS in the States, that are using videos of games to look for diving and are then punishing it.

    They may not be in the footballing mainstream, but on this one, where they lead, we should be following.

    TalkShite were blaming FIFA last week for tying the hands of the FA which as we know is bollox. If A and J leagues do it is It possible UEFA are probably to blame for not using video evidence post match? Just imagine the financial claims in the CL if you a team were put out from the competition due to a dive which was retrospectively punished….oh and the fact Barca would have to field a youth team.

    Whilst no retrospective action is taken Managers and Coaches will keep telling their players to do it (and they do even at the lowest level) I witnessed a youngster get taken off once in my league and the manager told him there and then he should have gone down for the penalty.

    Last week at Wolves we could easily have had a penalty when Ramsey was taken down, but because he got up and got the ball again nothing was given. Why be honest if it gets ignored?

  219. Gooner In Exile says:

    GM it’s good to see the Mirror give it full status, and also it seems they have said it was a goal. So despite ITV saying their conclusive evidence would have meant the right decision was given in seconds that picture suggests it was over the line.

  220. 26may1989 says:

    Hi Exile. No, this isn’t one we can pin on UEFA at all, other than in CL and Europa matches of course. It’s different re goal-line technology, which is a FIFA issue. But in domestic footy, national FAs have discretion to do what the Yanks and Aussies are already doing, so there’s no excuse for the FA and PL.

    You’re right to raise the knock-on issues re results affected by retrospectively punished dives, but hiding behind that would be very unconvincing. It’s not as if punishing the dives changes anything about them being dives in the first place. It might be awkward for the FA/PL, but it’s silly not to do good just because you can’t achieve perfection.

  221. goonermichael says:

    Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has suggested that Wigan will beat Arsenal when the two sides meet at The Emirates tomorrow night.

    The Gunners have the opportunity to move eight points clear of fourth placed Tottenham with a win but the Red Devils manager believes that the Latics can pull off a second consecutive upset after triumphing 1-0 against the league leaders on Wednesday.

    “They’ve got to get a goal, of course, but if they do they’ll beat Arsenal,” Ferguson said.

    “They are playing really well. They should easily be in the middle of the table, rather than down at the bottom, but at times they can’t get a goal.

    He’s worried about us for next season so he’s started his playground games early. wanker

  222. Gooner In Exile says:

    Why the f*** is Fergie getting adig in? If they score they win? Have you watched us at all this season Fergie? I agree with you GM.

    26 the thing is the FIFA code allows retrospective action for obvious errors…so I guess part (a) will be what is deemed an obvious error. I just wondered whether because we were governed by UEFA after FIFA whether UEFA had issued their own disciplinary code. It’s too late to look it up now. But maybe I’ll have a dig around and come up with something for a post as there’s not a lot Arsenal’ish to discuss in the coming weeks (assuming the good times continue to roll)

    I’m really looking forward to the Ems tomorrow night first time I’ve been to the new found wall of noise, will Wigan inspire an atmosphere? I fear it’ll be one of those games that needs a ref cock up to get us going in the stands.

  223. ne says:

    Please, lets not over think this. There are thousands of permutations of how this can play out. Just hope that the arsenal players and manager are focused on wigan right now. Because if we blow it, we will all say they were looking ahead, or not paying attention to the task at hand. We must do our job, and hope our continued success demoralizes our competition.

  225. Big Raddy says:

    jnyc/ne. You both echo the stand taken by AW since the turn of the year.

    However, being fans we cannot influence anything, so why not have some fun about it?

  226. Gooner In Exile says:

    Raddy, it’s that strange dilemma of a footy fan we actually think things we do affect performances on the pitch. I guess jnyc and ne are thinking they should be like the players.

    So, does that mean that Redknapp will stay at Spurs and make some of their fans even less happy than they are at present? Future looks bright, so much piss to be taken of the neighbours :)

  237. I`ve just seen JT`s clearance off the line for the Chav`s second goal, unbelievable !, the Reff has a clear view of the ball entering JT`s Rectum and being headed out by his pet Gerbil, a good case for Anal Technology imo.

    Oh yeah, apparently Arry is spurs longest serving manager this centuary, 3 years, pah! What did we say about continuity?

    Oz,
    A few weeks ago some said Citeh at home and Stoke away were the most difficult fixtures we had left. They could quite easily turn into the two easiest games for us in the run-in.
    It just doesn’t make sense to me to judge games in advance. I’d rather leave that to the bookies.

    Chas – or you could use GM epic line ‘I have no idea, I am a hairdresser’

  241. Morning all, I hope you early birds have been laughing at any spuds they may happen to know :)

    Incidentally, why am I not on the “AAers at the Tavern widget” ?

    Have I been barred because of my drunken antics last time out ? :(

  242. I suppose It`s fitting the FA are called the “FA”, as you get sweet FA out of them !

    Yes is the answer Chary, although I understand it was a request to the site from the Landlord concerning behaviour and excessive drinking. There’s an offy over the road doing a fabulous range of strong cheap cider, and I’m sure the regulars will wave and smile at you through the window.

  244. chas says:

    Is that the one where you have to pay through a grill?

  245. MickyDidIt89 says:

    That’s the one Chas. They do provide paper bags, and there’s a sturdy bench but 10 yards away.

  246. Rasp says:

    Morning chary – you’re top of the list now :)

  247. chas says:

    I’ve booked an early train to save a few quid, so I’ll see you at the bench at 5 ish, Chary, ok?

  248. chas says:

    Apparently this was Martin Atkinson’s view of the incident at Wembley.

  249. Chas/Mdi89 – I blame having to play form teams that I fear for the excessive drinking – it’s the only way to keep the nerves in check.

    When I got the ticket Wigan were poo – dam them and their recent improvement !

  250. Raddy – can you let me know when you’re out of the post please

  251. New Post …………….

    Pressure, pressure.

    Very funny Mick/chas. I have a wonderful picture of Chary paying for his Thunderbird through a grill while you sit in comfort :-)
