Re: 9 points behind Spurs

Done much much better?? With respect to what? Which teams? Which clubs? Based on what assumption? (It's not that I don't know the assumptions, but just asking to hear it loud n clear once again!)
With respect to points, position in the table, and generally the things that actually matter.

I wouldn't say that our end of the season position is necessarily better, but normally we're battling for 1st-3rd, not 7th-4th.

The start we had to this season didn't help, and I think if we had our full squad from the get-go it would have been the former. Not the latter.

So what you are saying, starting poorly and finishing strong(hopefully) at the same way in past 7 seasons are signs of success of manager?
I don't know, I should agree with that, if I do that means I need to agree that all the previous seasons were success too and major achievement to the manager.

That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying considering we were in the relegation slots early in the season, 4th isn't so terrible. We've scrapped and fought this season to get back to a very respectable position. Only an idiot would on that effort.

Instead of telling me why Wenger is so terrible for Arsenal, why don't you tell me what manager you'd bring in for him in his stead, and why he'd do better?

People want change for changes sake. Regardless of thought.

Try thinking.

AKBs are AKBs, they stand by ONE PARTICULAR MAN. To them everyone else is irrelevant, everything else is irrelevant and that includes even the club itself. So it's far from being practical.

AKB's are AKB's, Spuds are Spuds, Catholics are Catholics, Black are... oh wait.

Things aren't always black and white? You don't say.

Stop arguing soundbites and start arguing the actual points and maybe you'll get a bit more respect.

The rest of your post is kind of scattered, I'm not going to flatter it with response.
