  3. not a proffesional footballer

    City game was a fluke, all their goals were flukes, thanks stupid fixtures, dumb linesmen, fool referee. I wish we could replay that game another time just to show that Arsenal could actually win it, even with all the fatigue (which was apparent because the midfielders couldn’t even sprint anymore, or even string two passes together), we managed to score 3.

    That aside, the fixtures for the above are a bit loose. There’s 3-5 days rest in between, and a break after Munich at home.

  6. So by the end of March we could be in the FAC semi, the CL quarters and have put distance between ourselves and others in the league…….that would make April fun too!

  7. That’s a WoW fixture list. It’ll either sink me into depression or elevate me into a false sense of accomplishment.

    It’s World of Warcraft all over again.

  9. Bayern, spurs and chelsea in 3 straight away fixtures is tough. Good that we have a mid table team between Bayern and chelsea so we can rest some players.

  12. The fixture list may look tricky, but I feel enough of those games are at home/in London so we hopefully won’t have much travel fatigue. Still need to bring our A-game but we’ve had harder. COYG

  13. We put our selves into this sh*t in the first place and I am more than confident we’ld drag ourselves outa this same sh*t too

  14. For once the timing of the matches benefits us.
    If we happen to get an easier fa cup tie we can rest players ahead of Bayern 1st leg (though that didn’t go to plan against Blackburn last year)
    Spurs play Thursday Europa while we play Tuesday against Bayern .
    Finally the chelski game sees us have a week off while they play their 2nd leg.
    So it’s all very difficult but we’ve had worse in the past

  15. dont know if ppl realized that last season, in my shallow memory, we took manciteh, chelski, before losing to bayern at home.. then we lost to spuds before we had our resugence of that season at munich.
    then in next 2 months, we are basically playing the fixtures in reverse, right?
    SO I think that will be a positive sign of us fulfilling the potential of our perfomance, right guys?

    keep up the faith!

  16. if i said i did gulp i would be lying.

    After channeling all the brilliance and vintageness of our invincibles plus the mental strength and togetherness of our current squad. i quietly said to myself ……BRING IT ON

  17. Totally unrelated but did you all know that AVB is Sp*rs third best manager in terms of win percentage

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Tottenham_Hotspur_F.C._managers

    and of the top three hes the only one to have more than 100 games

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      I’m not sure you know how to read tables.

      • I read them from top to bottom and often just read the numeric ranking in the left most column?
        How should i read them?

        • the only sam is nelson

          AVB was in charge for 80 games

          and let’s face it, he’s paid the penalty for only being a mere 2 points ahead of the Glazerhawks at Christmas…

  18. It wasn’t a great performance but I felt we were very unlucky to lose by such a margin. A fairer reflection would have been a one goal defeat, or with Giroud being a bit more clinical, we could have gotten a draw. Statistically games played between the top 3 don’t have a strong bearing on the eventual winner, it’s the consistency we show against the other 16 that will keep us up there. One defeat to City does not define our season and shouldn’t be the catalyst for its failure. Let the press talk, let other fans write us off, who cares. I’d rather we were seen as plucky underdogs than as favourites. I still believe this team has what it takes to pick themselves up and go again against Chelsea. 9 days will give us good recovery and preparation time, something we had very little of for the City fixture. Keep the faith.

  19. So much for “We have to play the big teams at some stage!” Maybe, but starting with them in the quarter final would not have done uns any harm.

  21. Im fully expecting us to start a fresh run of good results after this 9 day rest. Lets dig in now gunners

    • That’s great. Keep in mind though, that Bayern will basically have a month off in the winter to rest up for the Champions League tie, whereas, knowing the punishing BPL schedule, we will probably be leg-weary or facing an injury crisis.

  22. February and March will either be the making of us or the death of us.

  25. I’d always figured who we got less important than when we played. The second leg could’ve fallen mid-week between spuds and chel$ki rather than mid-week between Swansea at hom/possible FA Cup quarterfinal and spuds. It gives us a chance to rotate the team better. Spuds away, Bayern away, and chel$ki away in a week would have been truly difficult. Of course, the way the scheduling gods have fucked us over this season we’ll get ManShitty away for FA Cup!

  28. We are beating Bayern this time around bcos beating at home last season is the only motivation needed to beat them . And for the league we are winning the league.

  29. thats why wenger hasn’t won the champions league…… we were sailing with 12 points after 5 games, and needed just the draw to top the table, but wenger set a defensive team just to avoid drubbing, but not to win or draw the game,…. even at 1-0 we could have attacked and got the equaliser, but settled to play out for second place… stupid wenger, he will never learn…. probably will never win it,… his only aim is to play in the league, but not to win it,….

  30. I fucking love the Arsenal but having to play most of our main rivals one after the other makes it a massive ask of this team to produce so many big performances + positive results in such a short space of time. We saw last week how difficult it is. If we win anything this year it will be one of Wenger’s most glorious achievements. I dunno who we can get our hands on in January, I don’t care what we spend or if it is just a loan but lets get another striker (maybe a centre back too?) and go for it.

  31. Get Suarez in January & them ties look far easier then they do at the moment. March looks huuuuuuuuge at the moment. A top class goalscorer & we can come thru them all

      No chance liverpool letting suarez now to us even for 100m, we can go for falcao but monaco will want the same amount they payed for him 55m, knowing wenger he will get some decent forward in january and in the summer if real go for suarez we will go for benzema (same situation like bale and ozil) and will pay for him 25-30m and if real don’t get suarez we will go for diego costa.
