Is the Europa League now less of a priority for Arsenal (and let’s laugh at the Spurs)

Europa League Downgraded? Spuds in the Bin/Toilet Bowl! – Can’t smile without you…..

Before I start, can we all please take a moment to laugh excessively hard at that lot down the road exiting the CL last night with a pi$$ poor, lacklustre display. I almost feel sorry for them sitting in a giant toilet shaped stadium freezing to  death, watching Romero get sent off again!
But let’s not be silly! Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!! In your face!
At the start of the season Europa was earmarked as a strong opportunity for Arsenal to gain Champions League Football, and this remains the case; however I think this has been diluted somewhat due to our league form, and I believe the league now takes precedence in Super Mik Arteta’s eyes.

The target for the club this season was to achieve Champions League qualification, and as we all know that means finishing in 4th as a bare minimum; although like a spoilt child at Christmas our expectations this year have been well and truly obliterated!
The Sp*ds currently occupy this position and are 18 points behind us and with 12 games remaining, my maths say we need to win 6 more games to guarantee St. Totteringham’s Day, which I would like to think is well within our capabilities.
However, like a trip to the dentist or the in laws coming for dinner, April is looming ever larger and there are some games of cataclysmic proportion such as Livarpool and Citeh away as well as Chel$ea at home and then Newca$tle away early in May. These four games ladies and gentleman, boys and girls will decide the league for me!
I think the less we care about the Europa the less pressure there is and potentially easier this competition becomes.
With ESR seemingly back and Jesus back in training, all we need is Eddie and Leo back for the run in, things are starting to look exceedingly exciting!
I may get ridiculed for this, but does anyone think we should throw in a cheeky £40m bid for Mudryk in the summer as it is clearly not working out???….
Come on you rip roaring reds!!!

Score prediction tonight 1-3 to the boys in red/black/pink

  1. No. It should be a priority. We should play a mixture of first team and second

    It’s a major 🏆 as far as I am concerned

  2. Yes, it’s not now so important to do well in the EL and a loss at this stage would just seem a bit deja vu (or whatever the Portuguese equivalent is), but I think it’s still an achievement to win any European competition, so would be very proud if we did.
    And don’t let’s get all juvenile over Spurs, we’re better than that (I hope).

  3. Until we are mathematically premier league champions, there is no reason to prioritize a competition

  4. I didn’t have any when we were eliminated from fa cup. We’ve had enough of that. Premier league and champions league are the ones I’m craving for.

  5. Yes, we should try to steal Mudryk away from Chelsea. He clearly wanted to join Arsenal, so we should look at bringing him over if possible. Additionally, we should absolutely prioritise the Europa League. Every potential route to success should be pursued with equal vigour.

  6. Imo, there is no reason why we can’t go for the PL and the EL. Yes we have some difficult games coming up in April, but let’s worry about them next month.

    In my lifetime, we’ve got to 7 (iirc) European Finals, and only won 2, the Fairs Cup in 1970 and the CWC in 1994, which I was lucky enough to see live. There’s been far to many disappointing defeats and it’s about time The Arsenal started becoming a big club in Europe. Win the EL and we then are one of the top seeds for next seasons CL, rather than 2nd or 3rd, depending on the co-effs of other teams that qualify.

    1. I agree.
      We should be able to compete also for the Europa League.
      But I wouldn’t mind seeing 3-4 of the players, who very rarely get a start get the chance.
      I.e. ESR, Kiwior, Nelson & Tierney.

  7. Our Priority should be league end of discussion. But that doesn’t mean we should throw a potential european title away, our european history is downright insulting compared to domestic success . I think Arteta is gonna play do like he did vs City in the fa cup, play a strong team but rest some essential players. Maybe Saka gets a rest this time then another one next. Odeggard has also looked tired recently so a break would be good.

    Partey is an absolute no-go until the Semi-final. we cannot afford to risk a potential injury knowing his injury history. Jorginho is good enough. Time to see kiwior in action.

    1. It’s not “end of discussion” until admin decides so.
      To win both the EL & the PL would be a superb double & quite an achievement for Arsenal and Mikel Arteta.

  8. Alex, let’s not jump the gun with infantile comments regarding our “neighbours” which may come back to haunt us.We have been eliminated from our two domestic Cup competitions and it’s about time we won a European trophy.Let’s focus on being pro Arsenal rather than anti Spurs, at least until we have won the League!

  9. I’m a peaceful man but my hatred towards Toilet Totties (you can’t make this up) is unparalleled. Win the league or not, we are celebrating St Totteringham Day this season.
