I want Spurs to finish above us

This post was taken from this thread on the forum

You know what, tonight a massive part of me wants spurs to win and wants them to finish above us in the league.

No doubt that many of you will call me a disgrace but I feel that finishing below the spurs would be the best thing that could happen to Arsenal FC the fans and the manager.

Some of you fans and even the manager and the board only care about finishing above the spurs and qualifying for the Champions league.

If we finish above the spurs you class our season as a success, No doubt if we beat Fulham this weekend and finish 3rd and above the spurs the players will do a lap of honer and the fans will be happy.

But in fact the players should do a lap of shame after the fulham game even if they win.

I would love it if Fulham beat us and the fans turned on the players and wenger, Because that’s what Wenger needs. Forget this “in Arsene we trust cobblers”

Wenger and the board need to know that finishing in 3rd place is not a success, We want to win things again. Wenger says that finishing 3rd is better then winning the FA cup and that finishing 3rd is like winning the 2nd league. What a load of crap! We had a great chance of winning something this season and we blew it.

You can blame it on the injuries to key players AGAIN but the sad fact is that our players bottled it and Wengers poor tactics and lack of spending had a massive part to play in it.

That’s why a part of me wants spurs to finish above us. So that we for once, can all stand up and admit that this needs to change. Finishing 3rd and above spurs cant be our target at the start of each season.

Wenger the board and the fans must now all come together and admit that this project of wengers is over and something needs to change in the summer.

A change of policies with regards to transfers or maybe a change in staff and wenger gets a new backroom. Some fans like me might even say that Wenger needs to go and we need a new manager.

Today the Arsenal.com and Wenger propaganda spin started again, the same BS since 2005. “I will sign 2 super super super class players” etc etc, and then he starts to backtrack on his words and says the players who are returning from injury will be like new signings etc.

If I’m honest I am now sick of wenger and all his crap. The fact that he wont admit that he is wrong or that the players are not good enough and wants to blame everything and everyone but not himself.

For years now Wenger has told the fans that we would be reassured by the summer transfers only to see our best players sold and replaced with cheap kids or players like Silvestre, and this poor 4-5-1 tactic is not working but wenger is to stubborn to revert back to a 4-4-2.

I want us to finish below spurs so that the Arsenal board, Wenger and the fans know that we don’t have a divine right to do so each year and we cant be arrogant to think that finishing 3rd and above the spurs is good enough anymore.

If only our fans protested this weekend or somehow turned there back on Wenger rather then hang a banner up saying “in Arsene we trust” when most of us dont anymore

It kills me to say this but COYS

    Hey Mr Grammar Critic just thought you would like to know that “Twat’s” is not the right way to use an apostrophe. I wouldn’t normally say but you seem to think these things are important.

    Its not really important what u think anyway coz arsenal don’t need fans like you. U want the crowd to turn on wenger and the players? What kind of a fan are u. Remind me again what was arsenals positions in the league before wenger came? Seems like a lot of u guys forgot that finishing 3rd would have been an achievement those days

    Mate, I am pretty concerned about where this team is going, and whether Wenger has lost the plot. But wanting Sp*rs to finish above us? That is not on from a so called Arsenal fan. Not on at all.

    to wish totts finish above us is insane and disgraceful, shame on u!

    ok, they beat us at the lane, but we fucked them at the emirates! third place is no treat for u but it’s a dream of 17 other teams in the epl, and some of them have spent a lot more money than arsenal as well. 3rd place is already a thorn in the side of most pundits who tipped us below 6th place.

    of course i’m not celebrating 3rd place, and neither does wenger, the players or anyone else at the club. but i can assure u the totts or the citeh are going to celebrate like madness if they finish 4th, despite having spent more money than arsenal.

    u should grow up or bug off to the shite lane.

    i will never read arsenalaction again.

    i do feel ur right that arsenal need a slap in the face and realise its time to wake up… however to be hoping for our rivals to finish above us gives me the shivers with all the showing off they will do… i also feel those who constantly earn for titles and cups are should look at themselves and stop being glory hunters… arsenal have a new legacy of good football we are playing top class football if people dont like it they should go support chelski or manu.

    He’s getting better, but honestly…your just jumping on the ‘I Love Song’ band waggon… he can tackle but his distribution is shit. He’s a long way from being in the top 10 midfielders in England let alone europe.

    Ahhh Sinbad u r 1 match away from your wish, spurs won! If Wenger was properly doing his job we would have celebrated St Totteringham day a couple of weeks back but no we have spineless players who can’t do the job without Cesc & a couple of Sunday league keepers & Wenger has the nerve to tell us they have mental strength. More like bubble strength!

    Somebody asks this question in every single article, and yet they still ask it as though they are the only one who sees the issue.

    It’s such a stupid question, not only are there many many good managers out there, Wenger himself arrived from almost total obscurity. If Wenger arrived from noweher then his replacement could come from nowhere aswell.

    Spuds to finish above us please go and lie down somewhere reagrdless of our last couple of weeks We do not deserve that from the pratts down at Fart lane. I can almost guarantee that they will do a liverpool next season and maybe finish 6th-8th then bye bye redknapp.

    I cannot agree a single view from this article. You might want us to drop to 4th place to get Wenger & the board realised something, well I on the other hand would like to see Wenger gone, and we fighting for CL spot for the next 10 years to realise how well Arsenal is handling now. Fans from Citeh & Spurs are cheering up because they might finally get a place in CL, yet we been in CL for the last decade and the fans are shouting to sack the manager & the board, I really hope you guys know what you are doing here.

    Who on the board will sack him? He is more powerful than anyone else there. He is Arsenal. After youve sacked him who are you going to appoint? Losing third place to spuds means very little in the overall scheme of things.

    If you really want to miss the chance of the Spuds falling flat on the faces in the qualifier after straining for years to get a shot at
    CL{ ask any Liverpool fan about Evertons shot} you have got to
    be mental. Why don’t you actually go and support the Spuds because you seem to hate at least as big a percentage of Arsenal as any self respecting Spud should. Things are far from perfect at
    Arsenal but 98% of prem supporters would look at your comments in disbelief. You aren’t represented by some large trade union by any chance are you? you seem to be prouder of being a member of red action than a supporter of Arsenal FC

    The only way things would change is that if Arsenal missed out on a champ league place.

    Wenger will get a new 3 year deal come the end of the season and Arsenal have rewarded him for winning nothing

    Who are you and we should agree with everything you say Rachid?

    Sinbad has never said that he speaks for all Arsenal fans or members of the forum.

    AA is a great forum and allows people to have a DIFFERENT VIEW

    Another messed up article by the same pillik. The comments of some. You’d swear the bunch of u are managers! Get rid of Song? Yet by pundits he has been ranked as the best DM in the league this year? What do they know. . . Wenger not spending? For years he spend money, Henry, Reyes, van Persie, Vieira, new stadium and he stops spending? Why is that difficult to understand? Oh, but yes, Wenger is a twat for NOT spending the money AFC DOESNT HAVE! Wake up Anti-AWB!

    Anyone that”supports” Arsenal and want’s ‘them’ to finish above us is a cunt, pure and simple and should fuck off and support someone else. We don’t need cunts like you hoping our rivals do better than us. In your weird twisted mind that is logical, to the rest of us, it proves what an almighty cunt you really are. In fact if there was a competition to gauge who is the biggest cunt in the world, you’d come 2nd (why not 1st I hear you ask?), because your such a cunt.

    supporters like you make me sick..Wenger has not had money to spend and has been told up until now to balance the books..He even has said as much himself and for the first time since moving to the Emirates(Probably only been built cause of wengers past transfer dealings) he has money ad no doubt will spend this summer and no doubt will challenge more strongly for the league

    Like any other Arsenal fan, I would love us to win the league. But I’m also grateful for what we have: yet another year in the Champions League, top 8 team in Europe, fantastic youth potential, beautiful attacking football, financial stability.

    By changing the coach, you put most of that at risk. Yes, we might get the next Ancelotti and win the league. But getting the next Ramos or Mancini is a VERY REAL possibility.

    Some fans here remind me of the Geordies when they sacked Bobby Robson. At the time, who would have believed you if you said they’d be in the Championship shortly after that?

    it amazes me how many of you fools cant se the bigger picture – u all think wenger is doing this cos hes stubburn wen in fact hes doing it for our future. he decided 10years ago that we needed to move 2 a bigger stadium and the only way to stay competitive during this period was to develop young talent. It was always known that he would have 2 sell 1 or 2 star players a season to balance the books. But now we are on the brink of seeing the fruits of his endevour and u bunch of dicks want him sacked. Trust me, he doesnt have a problem spending money as long as ther is value in it! Just b patient, we will dominate for years 2 come, we only have a small fraction of our debt to pay off!

    Your argument is nonsense and as empty and shallow as the so called fan you claim to be.

    I don’t know ANY Arsenal fan that claims a good season is coming higher in the table than Spurs, and trust me mate, I know quite a few..

    Let’s suppose Arsenal were to get new management, who do you suggest would come in and do a job? Nobody who’s worth their salt is available! And even if they were, any new manager wants to stamp their style as quickly as possible onto their team. This undoubtedly means even more bleeding in time, and ultimately no silver as they settle in. In short, we’re no better off.

    The same goes for players. It’s all good and well dreaming up the cream of the crop for the club, but with the sheer spending clout of Chelsea, United, City et al, Arsenal simply can’t lure the best out there. Simple as that.

    It’s not rocket science fella. The sooner you comes to terms with this, the quicker you can move on to some other pointless obsession. Get a life, get behind the team, and most importantly, have a think before you spout your muck, or shut the fuck up!

    you idiot…only small clubs like Spurs judge success by their proximity to their geographical rivals.

    Fact is 3rd would be a decent season, and would avoid a play off in the CL after a WC summer.

    yes we are a little too far from the top, but its not been too bad.

    maybe we have run out of steasm due to our CL extra fixtures, and you want that again next year.

    fcuking idiot

    Its natural that any team has different fans with different views on the team which is fair enough but come on, them finsh above us, no way mate! I been stressed since yesterday thinking we could end up fourth. That means coming back early and a whole load of other crap, like trying to qualify!!!

    I usually back Wenger and I think we should give him this final opportunity to make a menze as such. I’ts the 1st time since the stadium i’ve heard him refer to the finances as such, stating we can now compete on transfer fees which we haven’t recently. Lets wait and see what he does. If he addreseses the key areas and we don’t lose much from the squad then we should see what happens next season.

    Wenger is a winner, no matter what people may say and i’m convinced his hands have been tied with transfers otherwise why would he not address certain issues? Yea agreed sometimes he has blind faith but all managers do. He hurts so bad after each game, imagine how he feels when he ends up trophy less. I think we dont appreciate what we have, ask Charlton how they feel? I know i’ll get ripped for that comparison but name me another mangager who could have kept us competetive whilst moving the team to a new 300mill staidum. ? S**** spent far more than us for years yet they have just got into CL.

    Gooners we have to accept we are not a sacking club and will always appreciate and hounour what a manager has done for this great club. Look at Harbert Chapman, still remembered now, 70 years on from his days ! Come on people lets get behind the team, respect views and just hope Le Prof gets it right cos we all know that when we do win something big with his team, theres going to be Gooners around the world doing what I will………Rip my heartout and slam it into the faces of all the Arsenal knockers and say ……..F****** come on!!!! Arsenal ’til I die!!!!

    Look “Ghjjfgf”, since your reasoning fails so badly let me break it down in its minutest form so you can get it through your thick skull. I didn’t say he’s a jackass for disagreeing with anything. He’s a jackass for wanting our rivals to do better than us. As simple as that. Don’t go fanning flames when you don’t even comprehend what you read.

    “Knobber”, your name says it all. I know who you really are and you chose the perfect moniker to go by.

    Anyway, did you not notice the “arsenalaction” at the top of the article, which suggests he made the blog post on behalf of the board? When others post here they don’t do that. Their name alone is there which means it’s their thought, not a collective view. I don’t give a rat’s ass if you agree with me or not.
