Arsenal still have a lot of work to do! by DN
Although it would be quite a blow for Arsenal to finish fourth now after the position we have got ourselves into, it would still mean that the Gunners were once again in the Champions League next season. It would mean two play-off games that we could really do without but you know that we would take them rather than being in the Europa League with all the problems those Thursday night games seem to bring.
A lot of Arsenal fans seem to assume that we are already certain to be in the big European competition next season but with five games left to play there is still a lot of work to be done. I don´t know if you noticed but Man City finished the weekend having gone above Arsenal into second and they play again before our next game which is away to a Hull City battling relegation and having won at the weekend.
It is not unrealistic to assume that City will beat the Spuds on Sunday and if Man United beat West Brom at home and Liverpool win their two games against Hull and QPR, we could travel to the KC stadium on Monday night in fourth place, thee points behind City, one behind United and just one ahead of Liverpool. We would have games in hand but it just shows you that the Gunners are far from secure, especially with a trip to Old Trafford in one of our final games.
Having said that fellow Gooners, and I don´t mean to bring you down, I do not expect us to slip up and I would say we are still favourites for second spot, as long as Wenger can keep the players focused. Where do you see Arsenal finishing?
