Predicted final table – The super-computer does not like Arsenal!

The super-computer is claimed to have been fed the latest results and statistics, and decided that Arsenal will not be finishing in the Champions League places.

The Gunners have just fallen out of the top four thanks to Tottenham’s win over Chelsea last night, although that wouldn’t have been possible had we not succumbed to a 3-3 draw with Bournemouth on Monday.

Regardless of this result, we have looked very impressive this season, and with two very strong options able to lead the attack currently, as well as Danny Welbeck, Mesut Ozil, Lucas Perez, Alex Iwobi and Theo Walcott all vying for positions in behind them, it seems a crazy thought to think we are not going to remain strong throughout the campaign.

Our opinion is obviously not going to change the supposedly computer’s results, which are as follows:

1 Chelsea
2 Liverpool
3 Manchester City
4 Manchester United
5 Spurs
6 Arsenal
7 Everton
8 Southampton
9 West Brom
10 Bournemouth
11 Stoke City
12 West Ham
13 Leicester City
14 Watford
15 Burnley
16 Sunderland
17 Crystal Palace
18 Middlesbrough
19 Swansea
20 Hull

I can’t for the life of me figure out how Manchester United are in there above us and Tottenham considering their dire goal difference (which for me tells its own story), while I expect Chelsea and Liverpool remain in their spots because they have no Europe to contend with.

There is no chance that we are giving up on our title challenge as of yet, never mind considering the thought of finishing outside the top four. We haven’t failed to qualify for the knockout rounds of the Champions League in well over a decade, let alone failing to qualify for the competition at all.

What could it be about our side that has convinced the computer to consider us for sixth place? Is there really a chance we could finish that low down?

  1. Not sure how impressive we look, maybe better than last season but for what it seems a little too late, our chance with this team even with this Manager was last year, when all other teams collapsed.

      We only have 2 more games than Chelsea and Liverpool. CL is not much of an excuse at this stage of the season. Our problem is we can not build momentum. We can not win more than 1 or 2 games in a row.


    I really like sanchez attitude. The boy is a winner… If we had 2 more guys like him, no doubt we will definetaly win something big..the boy fights from the beginning till the end…
    Keep it up alexis sanchez

      Wilshere, Coquelin, Mustafi and Koscielny have the same passion and attitude

    To me, this table looks about right. Look at the momentum, tally up the points of the last 10 PL games and I doubt the table will look massively different than the one above.

    I have been saying since last year that we should forget about dreaming of a PL title. We should have nightmares about what is so obviously unfolding in front of our eyes. A finish outside the top 4.

    1. Jansen says:

      Last season after 20 games we had 42 points more than we do now with 41. How is that for progress?

  5. Jansen says:

    @ Pat J – If we have looked very impressive this season, why are we outside the top 4 at the moment?

    To me, we have looked weak this season. If we played 5 games to our potential its a lot.

    Man U have the momentum having won 6 games in a row and 24 points from their last 10 games. We have only 20 points from our last 10 games. The computer must take momentum in consideration.

    We are in crisis and we need to win 6 in row ourselves to get back in it. Instead, like losers we justify draws against Bournemouth as good results.

    This season is going to be a tough reality check for fans who took for granted a top 4 finish, because it ain’t happening this year and you should not need a super computer to predict that.

    Personally I’d agree on a Chelsea, Liverpool, top two, as they have no European football to worry about. But I would have Utd, and Spurs, above Arsenal, and City. Mourinho is a top manager, and Utd are starting to play well now, plus he has previous experience in this league. Spurs are also performing very well, and Pochettino has now got experience in this league as well. Being Pep’s first season in England, and their struggles with form, suspensions, and injuries, I think they could be in a battle with Arsenal for fifth. Wenger has a lot of experience of finishing in the top four, so we have that advantage, but Arsenal look so poor this season, especially in the big games.

  7. Soweto_Gooner says:

    If we win all our games, we will get 95 points, enough to win the league. Teams normally win the league with 86 points. Our destiny is still in our hands people. Where is the faith 🙂 .

    I think the computer has got it about right unfortunately, how can anybody be surprised that it put M.U. and Spurs above us, they are both playing better and look more solid than us. We might be scrapping with Man City for 5th place.

    The computer programmer is obviously a chav. ??
    There’s no way in Wengers world that Arsenal will finish any lower than 4th!!… Impossible ?
