We should have no complaints. The result actually flattered us. The margin of defeat could have been more if Stoke had taken their chances and possessed a bit more quality on their final ball. Everybody bar the defence and keeper was wank today.

Its not about scaring people. Stoke plays a type of football we struggle against. Liverpool put 5 past them at their place. They didnt need to scare them. Kicking few stoke players will just give them freekicks and yellow cards to us. They defend deep with alot of players. We dont have the players to hurt this kind of system. So it was really easy for them today

bit worried after watching this rubbish today,
we tried both the long ball and the passing game and were no good at either? i think resting ozil in this game was a huge mistake as it gave the impression to stoke that we were wary even scared of them. so many went awol today its hard to pick out the worst player from the ones who got involved and played crap like rosser and jack and the ones who just hid like santi and poldi??
its hard to see without the fire power how we can stop the slide and stay in the top four i really hope im wrong but defo the fa cup or bust

We cant....thats what you get when you have grioud, bendtner and sanogo strike force. I think people are extremely generous on us when they say we lack the mental strength. It make it sound like we have the players to win the league when in reality we dont

HA!

Another late season meltdown by Arsenal. This team has a habit of choking late in the season.

No strikers??? We all know Giroud does not even count as one =)

You go cheap. You pay the price.

Well deserved Wenger. Well deserved!

League campaign is now over. Al we can do is put everything into the FA cup. This was our best chance at winning the league for awhile.

Next season we won't have a chance, everyone else will have strengthened too much and we'll have lost the likes of Sagna and Vermaelen.

13th of May 2012 Arsenal beat West Brom 3-2 to finish 3rd ahead of Newcastle. Gooney is still yet to leave the forum...

I dont think Arsenal could care less about winning the league. The goal has always been make the top 4 and make the CL money. As a company we are making profits and thats all that matters. We are the definition of modern day football club with no soul

winning the fa cup is what we need. we havent won anything in ages and our players have no experience in winning anything. Winning breads winning. Look at Simona Halep and when she won her first title :dontknow:

All about the FA Cup now. I'd prefer to win that and finish outside of the top four than finish 3rd/ 4th and not win it.
