@Sandy: We've done much, much better in the EPL in seasons past. By that I mean immediate past.

This season is almost the polar opposite - starting poorly and finishing (hopefully?) strong. There's a lot yet left to play for. Since our current squad (Arteta, Mertesacker, Santos, etc.) have been available we've done fine. Look at the team sheets for the United game, for example.

You say AKB, I say practical. It's a nice soundbite, but when you look at how many managers have failed to do what Arsene has for one season, let alone a dozen, perhaps you can gain a greater appreciation.

A week ago Arsenal were in rapid decline and Tottenham were the best team in London in years. You see how quickly people change their minds?
