We need to emulate Chelski by taking 16 wins out of first 20 games to win title.

Since 2012/13, this season is the worst start out of last 6 seasons.
If Arsene Wenger is honest with himself, he knew that he needed to have 16 wins out of the first 20 games to have a chance to win 2017/18 title.

Leicester City won the title with 81 points but with only 3 losses and 12 draws.
Chelski won the title with 93 points, clocking 30W 3D 5L.

Since Emirates Era, Arsenal FC have never won more than 24 games and have only collected more than 80 points in one season only; 2007/08 where Arsene Wenger managed to snatch defeat from Jaws of Victory.

Can we win the 2017/18 title?
Then Arsene Wenger will need to win more than 26 games which he had never done before.
Plus unbeaten for the remaining 35 games.

Emirates Era Results:
Season … Finish …. W …. D …. L ….. F ….. A … +/- … Points
2006/07 ….. 4th ….. 19 … 11 ….. 8 … 63 … 35 … 28 … 68 points – Arsenal

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failure's all you've known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go. Let it go

"Yesterday"

Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away.
Now it looks as though they're here to stay.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly I'm not half the man I used to be.
There's a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why she had to go, I don't know, she wouldn't say.
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday love was such an easy game to play.
Now I need a place to hide away.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Why she had to go, I don't know, she wouldn't say.
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday love was such an easy game to play.
Now I need a place to hide away.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm



When you go home, tell them of us and say
For their tomorrow, we gave our today.

A pig just flew by my window

A better use of time might be to discuss how the club will avoid further decline before it becomes a down hill avalanche



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

That will be after Bournemouth match ... and this comparison is proof of how far we had declined even if we had spend 100-mil to 200-mil to buy Lemar and other in January.

I wish I had said that, but then I think they already have
