    I agree that it was incredibly close to top 4, that being said we were not the only team under performing. Man U, Chelsea, Spurs will all expect to be better next year. The battle for CL is going to be a wild one once again.

    Relying on your owner for investments isn't really too great a sign.

    I can admit that Arsenal's academy looks better, but I disagree about their younger squad players being better.

    Can't wait to see what you say if Spurs get Ndombele.


    I strongly disagree.

    Spot on, just Kroenke can show some ambition and let us sign expensive big names that push us closer to contending for winning the League and Champions League once again, but I don't expect it to happen. Our squad depth on paper looks the second weakest ( after Tottenham), but our starting 11 looks relatively strong with everyone fit. Chelsea will probably finish third if us, United and the ****** don't strengthen. My current prediction would be

    3. Chelsea
    and a toss up between Arsenal, United and the club without fans and trophies for fourth

    I'm not sure if Chelsea's situation is going to be good. Transfer ban plus losing their manager.

    Also OGS's honeymoon period is over so we will have to see how he manages a team in a full season.

    It seems like Arsenal is aiming for a full rebuild by having Ljungberg as a first team coach to transition youth players to the first team. If that's the case I don't expect top 4 from Arsenal.

    We arent reliant on our owner, we made a huge profit of 112 million pounds, but Kroenke spends it on Yachts and the Rams.

    Looking at young squad players, I think Alli basically is the only one you have that would make Arsenals best team.

    Time will tell so lets leave it there because you seriously seem biased ( I know seem biased too but some of the things you have said seem ridiculous). Sam Greenwood, Arthur Okonowo, Folarin Balogun and Xavier Ameachi all look more promising than all of the Spurs youngsters in the same age in my eyes, and it is no wonder Arsenal crushed the U18 opposition.

    I may have misinterpreted the Kroenke thing.

    What other ridiculous things have I said?
