Wenger is sure that Arsenal will top Tottenham

It would obviously have been one of Arsene Wenger’s most painful moments of the season watching Arsenal put in arguably their worst performance of the season at White Hart Lane at the start of March. Not only was it a blow in the race for the top four, but it gave everybody connected with the Spuds, and most of the media, to continue with their anti-Arsenal garbage, using one lucky win to apparently `prove` that we had lost our position of dominance.

Wenger did not react at the time, but he must have been seething, especially from AVB’s comments about a downward spiral that we would not be able to break out of. Since then, of course, the Gunners have won two in a row while they have lost three in a row. You just know that they are all starting to fear a repeat of last season, when they blew probably the best chance they will ever get to finish above us. Just in case, Wenger has gently reminded them.

“We have the experience of a few years. We have a special desire to do it (top four) together,” said Wenger.

“With the form we have shown, against Bayern and Swansea, I think we have a very good chance to finish in the top four.

“We know that if we are consistent we will do it. We do not focus on Tottenham at all. We focus on the way we want to play and our results. If we are consistent in the last nine games we will do it.

“Honestly, we don’t have any speculation on the weakness of our opponent. We just think there is a number of wins you want. It can be to get in front of them or anybody else.

“Nobody is out of reach, except for Manchester United.”

While Wenger talks about not looking at the weakness of Tottenham, the Spuds are talking about not fearing Arsenal, and both statements are clearly false. When someone starts a sentence with `honestly`, you know they are about to lie. Wenger is basically saying that Tottenham are weak and will let us overtake them again, and he is right, and the best thing is that they know it as well.

Michael Laudrup will have used the international break to re-focus his Swansea team after the Capital One cup euphoria. I expect them to be back on form today, and would not be surprised if they inflict a fourth defeat in a row on the Spuds.

Come on you Gunners!

    I think realistically we can win all our home ties, if we beat Reading and West brom then we’ll be on a role, then Jack will return to batter Norwich and Everton and then byebye Untited, simple!

    lets keep winning games and get maximum points, and try finnish 3rd, dont worry about spuds or chavs. then in the summer lets re-organise the squad with maybe 2-3 world class players and go for the title an maybe champions league next season

    Would be so great if we get that top 4 I think if we get above them then they wont catch us back. No slip ups can only afford 1 defeat.

    We got alot of great upcoming talents but lets get real, on 2 will propably play for the first team regulary in the future and if we are lucky 4.

    Great hopes for Gnabry,eisfield,apkom,bellarin and then we have toral,olsson,meade,angha,hayed,martinez,yennaris etc but will they have that extra to become an arsenal player? I doubt it but i hope they do.

    And then we have superb talents like campbell and aneke who already is ready for Arsenal.

    I wish AW would stop talking and focus on the remaining games!
    Past records are no reason to suggest top 4 is certain now.
    The article says that the Spurs match was one of Arsenal’s worst performances this year? Cant agree there? Bradford Blackburn and one or two others were much worse! Arsenal played very well against Spurs. Only they made 2 bad mistakes and did not create enough chances!!

    The fact is that Arsenal are still behind Chelsea and Spurs, so now is the time to deliver. Arsenal have not done that this year? They also have MU at home. I cant remember the last time Arsenal have gotten so much as a single point away from MU? Seems like they have hardly beaten them since the 2005 FA Cup Final. Yikes!! Will it ever change?
    To get 4th spot, Arsenal need to go unbeaten. On this year’s form it is hard to imagine. Hope I am wrong!

  21. Wilshere no. 1 Fan

    [04/03/2013 17:18:15] Sachin Bawa: Theory: I believe that Arsene may not have made the wrong decision in his selection, but also his formation. In the 2007 Season, we played a 4-4-2, which proved to be extremely effective with Adebayor and Eduardo playing as strikers. They both scored a good amount of goals for the ability they possessed at the time. I wont accept that Giroud and Podolski wont be able to do as good a job as them until it is tried. Not only are the two banks of four hard to break down, but playing another man upfront with Giroud would help him a lot as his touch and vision are excellent, he just doesn’t always have the time to finish his chances. If Podolski played upfront with him, then both could make unselfish runs, gifting the other striker space. I would then play Walcott RM, Wilshere CM, Arteta CM, Cazorla LM.

    Rather have Daryl Janmaat as RB. One year older and first choice RB for the Dutch national team.

    Denilsons contract runs out 2014.

    Buy
    1) micah richards, arsenal fan, can play at rb and decent cb, fast and abit of steel.
    2) kevin strootman, can’t find any centre mid that is good enough yet available with burning a hole…javi martinez would be nice but i dont think guardiola/bayern will let him go…the new bayern, i suspect will be built around him…anyway strootman looks decent
    3) robert lewandolski, arsenal fan, classy finisher, suitable for arsenal’s style of play

    Spurs are getting closer to us, or are they? Could it be we’ve allowed our standards to drop? Could be the manager has lost the plot? Personally I think they’re years behind us and when they lose today at Swansea like I expect them to, I’ll be confident Spurs have f*cked it yet again.

    Just imagine if we had kept song instead go relying on crocked Diaby and bought a decent striker. Not saying we would be winning the league but Man City, Chelsea and Tottenham would be in our slip stream
