Take a look at last years final table and check out the goals against tally, only Chelsea, Everton and City conceded less. Take away our two horror results (man city and Liverpool) we were extremely solid.
I think 'boring' was the word you were searching for :wink:

Balotelli at least has already won the PL - maybe he's obviously content at leaving it at one medal?

A bit like when Van Persie had to leave you guys to win one?

I doubt it. Man U "fans" take the cake in that area.

It's known arsenal fans think that champions league qualification means they've had a successful season.

Young defender made young defender errors last night. Will be interesting to see how many teams take points at City though. They are very solid and efficient. Thus I have them down to win the league, then Chelsea, the LFC. If we lose to Chelsea and City at their grounds, but pretty much take maximum points in every other game, we still be within a shout though.

Derek, can you measure something you've never seen? Or did you ask Barca if you could touch the trophy in 06 just to see what it felt like for a glimpse?

if you do, you should be champions - but you wont

its "known" is it?

we dont have the financial clout to buy players like Man City/Chelsea so we're always gonna be lagging behind in that area

in spite of all that, we've consistently finished inside the top 4 year after year.

does that mean we consider that a success - no. it just means we're able to compete every season.

Not have one successful year every 7 or so then get our hopes up that "this will be our year"

Not sure where I said we will win every game, just that we should be looking to take maximum points from the games away from Chelsea and City... is this not a concept your team is familiar with? Obviously you're also including Anfield, White Hart Lane, probably Old Trafford too based on the performance at Goodison.
Funny how a specifically LFC transfer topic is a gathering place for Arsenal fans... you guys lonely?

yet you consistently lose your best players due to a lack of ambition.....

Of course you'd be looking to take points from other games. So would most other sides in the EPL

Don't worry Derek will soon back down with his tail between his legs when he gets shown up.

Wasn't it you last year making bets about where teams would finish up...? And how did that go for you?

Yes it was, i have no issue with admitting that. Liverpool has an unbelievable finish to the season and proved me wrong. But for you to pretty much say, apart from City and Chelsea, you expect to take maxium points from all other games is just laughable.

To not want your team to take maximum points from winnable games... what would that be then?

Its not about wanting them to win games, everyone wants their team to win! Your previous quote was basically an assumption that they would!

Rodgers tactical naivety at Palace and against Chelsea probably cost the title.
