Even with the new rules, we are still 4th best with Abu Dhabi City, Liverpool and Tiny Totts ahead of us on points.

Again, we will be knocked out of CL Cup by the likes of Real, Barca, Bayern Munich, PSG, Juventus and Milan who are light-years ahead of us playing Beautiful Football with Beautiful People.

"If Wengers ideas are accepted, they will not only signify the biggest changes to association football since its invention in 1996, but also restore Arsenal to their rightful place at the head of Europe’s footballing elite."

This is a great line.

Herbert Chapman pointed out that the team who scores the most goals wins. So I passed this on after our defeat by Man U, only to be told by Wengerite Keyboard warriors that I was stating the obvious. They then continued to complain that the best team had unfairly lost



- 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.

For the sake of balance, the Arsenal fans who hate Wenger also bend the rules and fundamental principles of football to suit their agenda when the situation calls for it mate, in the exact same way as the Wenger apologists do.

Yes, the team that scores the most goals wins the game - very straightforward, but not when Arsenal do that. When Arsenal score most goals in a big game, we complicate the rules and quite often deflect attention away from the team by highlighting something about the opposition which made the win possible: Hazard missed a one-on-one that he usually scores, Mourinho fielded a weakened team, Kane clearly wasn't fit, if Sanchez got that red card he deserved three games ago then he wouldn't be playing and thus we wouldn't have won.

As good as Celine's satirical piece is here, there really is grounds for writing one on the opposite end of the spectrum, one about mocking the group that have a strong dislike for Wenger, and it would be just as valid. There's a pair of you's in it really.

One of my favorourite all time wins is the 2005 cup final, where we roped a doped. No complaint from me.

Yes 19 off target shots must be worth at least 3 goals
