* One game in hand.
** Two games in hand.

Arsenal had 8 losses and counting – against Liverpool (both legs), Everton (A), Abu Dhabi City (A), Watford (H), Chelski (A), WBA (A) and Crystal Palace (A).


Table A – “Traditional Top-8 Big Club” Mini-League which included Leicester City:
….. W … D … L ….. F ….. A … +/- __ Points
….. 8 ….. 5 … 1 … 25 … 14 … 11 … … 29 … Liverpool
….. 8 ….. 1 … 4 … 27 … 14 … 13 … … 25 … Chelski

….. 2 ….. 2 … 7 … 12 … 27 …-15 … ….. 8 … Leicester City
….. 1 ….. 4 … 5 … 14 … 18 …. -4 … ….. 7 … Arsenal


The reason why Arsenal is in 6th position is they are the worst performance in Top-8 Mini-League.
And I cannot see Arsenal winning anyone of these remaining 4 games.
But you will never know when Arsenal players decided to turn-up and play:

27 Apr – Arsenal V Leicester City
30 Apr – Tottenham V Arsenal
06 May – Arsenal V Man Utd
21 May – Arsenal V Everton

Table B – Comparison of the Top-8 team against Bottom-12 teams:
….. W … D … L ….. F ….. A … +/- __ Points
… 18 ..... 3 … 0 …. 54 ….. 9 … 45 … … 57 … Tiny Totts
… 17 ..... 3 … 0 …. 49 … 11 … 38 … … 54 … Abu Dhabi City
… 16 ..... 2 … 1 …. 38 … 13 … 25 … … 50 … Chelski
… 16 ..... 2 … 3 …. 49 … 22 … 27 … … 50 … Arsenal
… 12 ..... 8 … 1 …. 34 … 14 … 20 … … 44 … Manchester United
… 12 ..... 5 … 4 …. 41 … 17 … 24 … … 41 … Everton
… 11 ..... 4 … 4 …. 44 … 26 … 18 … … 37 … Liverpool
….. 8 ..... 5 … 8 …. 28 … 25 ….. 3 … … 29 … Leicester City


Table B indicated that Tiny Totts and Abu Dhabi City are still unbeaten against Bottom-12 teams, and why Tiny Totts is battling Chelski for the title.
Abu Dhabi City is out of the title race due to abysmal performances against Top-8 teams.

2015/16 Leicester City proved that an inferior team can still be a title-winner by being unbeaten against Bottom-12 teams, and loses only 3 games against Top-8 teams.

Table A and B clearly indicated why Arsenal is out of the title race due to them being the worst Top-8 team performer, and losing 3 games against Bottom-12 teams.
Liverpool crashed out of the title race during 3rd Quarter by winning only 3 games out of 10 games played.
Arsenal crashed out of Top-4 during 3rd Quarter by winning only 4 games out of 10 games played.
Arsenal Decline started in 2nd Quarter by winning only 5 games out of 9 games played.
Everton has a great 3rd Quarter and can challenge for Top-4 but started to falter during 4th Quarter.

Chelski is faltering now and can be caught by Tiny Totts if they draw 2 games or more.
Chelski will win the title with 5W 0D 1L out of remaining 6 games.

All that is left for Arsenal is a grim struggle to retain Top-4 status.


Performances needed from Arsenal to collect 73 points to clinch 4th spot are tabulated below:

… 27 ….. 8 ….. 3 … 83 … 31 … 52 … … 89 points – 1st spot optimism but out of title race at Round #24

We need these remaining game results 4W 3D 0L to collect 72 points to stand a chance to cliché Top-4 spot.

Our next 7 opponents and results needed to collect 72 points:

W – 10-May – Southampton P-P Arsenal
W – 13-May – Stoke V Arsenal

After Round #31, it is our 3rd worst season after 2006/07 and 2012/13; and similar to the 2015/16 shameful collapse.

We had a real chance to win the title for 5 out of 10 previous seasons (including 2015/16) if we had not continue to collapse during March and April Easter Weekend:

2007/08 – 6 point behind ManU; [February BRUM Collapse continued with 4 consecutive draws and 1 loss]
2009/10 – 1 point behind Chelski; [We had a run of 6 consecutive wins to keep pace with Chelski]
2010/11 – 4 point behind ManU; [March Collapse started with 3 consecutive draws]
2013/14 – 4 point behind Man City; [Collapse started with 22-March-2014 Chelski 1-5 loss, followed by Man City draw]
2015/16 – 8 point behind Leicester City; [Collapse started with 5-Mar-2017 Tiny Totts draw]
2016/17 – 18 point behind Chelski.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
During the 1st Quarter, Arsenal was keeping pace with the leaders but during 2nd Quarter, we started to decline and starting to fall off the pace.
It was the dramatic collapse during the 3rd Quarter – yes, the wintry months – that utterly derailed our season, and the collapse continues right into April, which is a surprise, an anomaly during Arsene Wenger Era.
It was always during late-March/April for the past 20 seasons that Wenger’s Arsenal will start their late surge to clinch 4th spot during the 38th game.
And this can happen too for 2016/17 season – but dependence very much on the collapse of Liverpool, ManU and Man City for the next 6 to 8 games now; and of course, Arsenal stringing together 8 consecutive wins, beating ManU, Tiny Totts and Everton in the process. But our 11 games as from April 1, 2017 does not give us hope that we can do it:


Comparison of Arsenal last 11 games as of April 1, 2017:

WWLDW W … Everton
WWWWW …… Tiny Totts
WLWWL …… ... Chelski

After 11th February 2017 loss to Liverpool, Tiny Totts is awesome stringing together a run of 7 wins to challenge a faltering Chelski for the title. The pressure of expectation is on Chelski now.

Supporting Arsenal Times is Spornosexuality which involves a significant amount of work, time and constant labour but offers very little reward, but the pleasures yielded are only fleeting. Spornosexuality has eroded young men's traditional support of values so they have become increasingly reliant on their delusional disorder and whingeings as a means of feeling valuable. (Sm3)

* One game in hand.
** Two games in hand.

Arsenal had 8 losses and counting – against Liverpool (both legs), Everton (A), Abu Dhabi City (A), Watford (H), Chelski (A), WBA (A) and Crystal Palace (A).


Table A – “Traditional Top-8 Big Club” Mini-League which included Leicester City:
….. W … D … L ….. F ….. A … +/- __ Points
….. 8 ….. 5 … 1 … 25 … 14 … 11 … … 29 … Liverpool

….. 2 ….. 4 … 5 … 15 … 18 …. -3 … … 10 … Arsenal
….. 2 ….. 2 … 8 … 12 … 28 …-16 … ….. 8 … Leicester City


The reason why Arsenal is in 6th position is they are the worst performance in Top-8 Mini-League.
And I cannot see Arsenal winning anyone of these remaining 3 games.
But you will never know when Arsenal players decided to turn-up and play:

30 Apr – Tottenham V Arsenal
06 May – Arsenal V Man Utd
21 May – Arsenal V Everton

Table B – Comparison of the Top-8 team against Bottom-12 teams:
….. W … D … L ….. F ….. A … +/- __ Points
… 19 ..... 3 … 0 …. 55 ….. 9 … 46 … … 60 … Tiny Totts
… 17 ..... 3 … 0 …. 49 … 11 … 38 … … 54 … Abu Dhabi City
… 17 ..... 2 … 1 …. 42 … 15 … 27 … … 53 … Chelski

… 11 ..... 4 … 5 …. 45 … 28 … 17 … … 37 … Liverpool
….. 8 ..... 5 … 8 …. 28 … 25 ….. 3 … … 29 … Leicester City


Table B indicated that Tiny Totts and Abu Dhabi City are still unbeaten against Bottom-12 teams, and why Tiny Totts is battling Chelski for the title.
Abu Dhabi City is out of the title race due to abysmal performances against Top-8 teams.

2015/16 Leicester City proved that an inferior team can still be a title-winner by being unbeaten against Bottom-12 teams, and loses only 3 games against Top-8 teams.

Table A and B clearly indicated why Arsenal is out of the title race due to them being the worst Top-8 team performer, and losing 3 games against Bottom-12 teams.
Liverpool crashed out of the title race during 3rd Quarter by winning only 3 games out of 10 games played.
Arsenal crashed out of Top-4 during 3rd Quarter by winning only 4 games out of 10 games played.
Arsenal Decline started in 2nd Quarter by winning only 5 games out of 9 games played.
Everton has a great 3rd Quarter and can challenge for Top-4 but started to falter during 4th Quarter.

Chelski can be caught by Tiny Totts if they draw 2 games or more.
Chelski will win the title with 4W 0D 1L out of remaining 5 games.

All that is left for Arsenal to hope Liverpool, ManU and Man City continue to drop points to retain Top-4 status.


Performances needed from Arsenal to collect 73 points to clinch 4th spot are tabulated below:

… 27 ….. 8 ….. 3 … 83 … 31 … 52 … … 89 points – 1st spot optimism but out of title race at Round #24

We need these remaining game results 3W 3D 0L to collect 72 points to stand a chance to cliché Top-4 spot.

Our next 6 opponents and results needed to collect 72 points:

W – 13-May – Stoke V Arsenal
W – 16-May – Arsenal V Sunderland
D – 21-May – Arsenal V Everton

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

After Round #32, it is our 3rd worst season after 2006/07 and 2012/13; and similar to the 2015/16 shameful collapse.

We had a real chance to win the title for 5 out of 10 previous seasons (including 2015/16) if we had not continue to collapse during March and April Easter Weekend:

2007/08 – 6 point behind ManU; [February BRUM Collapse continued with 4 consecutive draws, 1 loss, 1win]
2009/10 – 3 point behind Chelski; [April Collapsed started with BRUM draw]
2010/11 – 6 point behind ManU; [March Collapse started with 3 consecutive draws, followed by 1win, 1 draw]
2013/14 – 6 point behind Man City; [Collapse started with 22-March-2014 Chelski 1-5 loss, followed by Man City draw]
2015/16 – 8 point behind Leicester City; [Collapse with 5-Mar-2017 Tiny Totts draw, followed by 5 losses, 5 draws]
2016/17 – 18 point behind Chelski.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
During the 1st Quarter, Arsenal was keeping pace with the leaders but during 2nd Quarter, we started to decline and starting to fall off the pace.
It was the dramatic collapse during the 3rd Quarter – yes, the wintry months – that utterly derailed our season, and the collapse continues right into April, which is a surprise, an anomaly during Arsene Wenger Era.
It was always during late-March/April for the past 20 seasons that Wenger’s Arsenal will start their late surge to clinch 4th spot during the 38th game.
And this can happen too for 2016/17 season – but dependence very much on the collapse of Liverpool, ManU and Man City for the next 5 games now; and of course, Arsenal stringing together 8 consecutive wins, beating ManU, Tiny Totts and Everton in the process. But our 11 games as from April 1, 2017 does not give us hope that we can do it:

After 11th February 2017 loss to Liverpool, Tiny Totts is awesome stringing together a run of 8 wins to challenge a faltering Chelski for the title. The pressure of expectation is on Chelski now.
