It's an achievement because we were left in the lurch with Nasri and Fab leaving, had to deal with our worst ever start living memory, and then shake it off and claw our way back to where we are. That's not exactly a cake walk.
Where we are btw is 3 points clear of a team that just fired a manager more expensive than any player we've ever signed.

If you want to be a Chelsea fan and get a new manager every 8 months go be a Chelsea fan.

If you want to see huge signings every summer when your squad is already bursting go be a Citeh fan.

If you want to overpay on English talent just to say "hey, we're trying" go be a Liverpool fan.

For my money we're doing things the right way, it's not as instantly gratifying sometimes and we've certainly had our rough spells but so does every team. Don't call yourself a fan unless you're willing to stick with them through their highs and lows, and I don't think we're near as "low" as the media and popular opinion make us out to be.

Up the Arsenal. AFC for life.

and we've played some fantastic football even during the last few trophyless years.

Now tin hats on and wait for morning.
