Re: 9 points behind Spurs

We are never going to catch spurs, the power balance has shifted and I completely agree with hippo. Spurs are now the more ambitious club they have a better balance of players than we do especially in midfield, a board who want to win things not just fall across the line and the willingness to bankroll their ambition and a manager who has the strength of character to stand up to his bigger players and hold them to their contracts.

It has not just happened over night, we have gradually been getting worse whilst Spurs have gradually been getting better over a period of 7 years but since 'old twitchy' got the job the acceleration of this trend has become noticeable.

There will be no CL for Arsenal next year, Spurs, Liverpool, Chelsea, Utd and Citeh will all bring in at least one or two quality players to add to what they already have whereas we will not, why ?

Because Hazard, Gotze and players of this ilk will all be getting offers from the top clubs in Europe offering CL football and Arsenal will not be able to offer them the same but even more obvious than that is the fact that we no longer even so much as bid for top quality footballers anymore and the fact that by that time it will be too late even if we do because we will have nothing to offer.

The board at Spurs will not miss this opportunity to hold onto their CL spot, they are supporting their supporters who pay a damn sight less than ours do to watch their club play and yet invest a damn sight more than our board does to strengthen their team.

A blase attitude from the board has led us to the bottom of this pit and its going to take 4 or 5 years to pull ourselves out.

For all of the Arsenal supporters on this site who claim that this is not the case not one of them can articulate why they think they are right and amusingly enough they resort to faith based arguments in lieu of any facts even though these are mostly the same posters who argue there is no God...........................................................................................................................................................................................................(Sm126) Oh well !
