With the way we've been defending of late a clean sheet will be a fucking miracle.

Austin will bag a double hattrick and Wenger will moan that Austin's cock was offside for all six.

Think we will struggle.

Like Swansea (until last few months), Southampton are a footballing team but they press hard and are well-organised defensively. Hence we have found it hard-going against both since their promotions.

We've not played well really since City back in early December. Whilst we've been able to still get past the likes of Sunderland, Newcastle and Bournemouth at home we got exactly what we deserved at Stoke, Southampton, Liverpool and against Chelsea. Well have to be better here and with trips to United, Spurs, Barca and Everton within 3 weeks we are in for a horrendous 6 weeks or so. You think the atmosphere was poisonous after the Chelsea game, you wait til mid-March.

The problem with us is that when it pours it rains. We don't go and play poorly for 2 or 3 games, more like 2 or 3 months. Look at the epic scale of our capitulations from title-challenging positions in 2008, 2010 and 2014.

We are looking terrible, the worst over an extended period that I remember for years. Our underbelly was always soft for the last 5/6 years but now... there is zero fight in this team at all. Depending how United perform I can see us falling out of the top 4 in the next 6 weeks. Clinging on to 4th place by mid March, AT BEST. Ironically that will light a fire under Wengers A$$ and we will go on a half arsed unbeaten run and probably scrape home in 4th. Cue huge celebrations, lack of any signings in the summer completely overlooked as all focus will be on the Euro's. AND, new contract for Wenger.

Agreed. We'll struggle to keep a clean sheet between now and the end of the season, every combination of our defence is complete dog shite.

Since that night at Anfield when we made a striker-less Liverpool look like the Harlem fucking globetrotters letting in 3 and could have easily been 6 the victims have followed that up by producing the following in their next three home games -

90 mins v United - no goals
120 mins v Stoke - no goals
90 mins v West Ham - no goals

:cussing:

2-1 with Alexis dragging us through again, it will be close though.
