If they cannot beat West Brom and guarantee third, then that would make for a fitting end to the season.

Does Wenger deserve more time?

If this M'Vila signing materialises then yes he deserves more time.

If he did sign then we just pray that Wenger doesn't get any ideas of turning M'Vila into a fake No.10. Wouldn't put it past him.

I don't want to see Aron Ramsey nowhere near our first team. Send him to vacation and hopefully he'll sort his head come August.

We'll probably edge it.

Ramsey was burnt out by November he was starting every effin game I am not at all surprised, some of you guys need to relax with the Ramsey hate. Yes, blame AW for putting him on every single time but not the player he's given a lot.

This match what can I say, as big and crucial as it can get this season and the boys need to make up for Norwich and also do it for Sagna. There's enough factors here to give West Brom a real pummelling.

Burnt out? It's not like he was racking up goals and assists with all those minutes he was on the pitch before he might have become burnt out. All he has at the moment is work rate. A footballer should be able to last August to November without burning out unless they're like 17.

He's just not fulfilling the potential he had before his injury - no idea why!

His work rate is very dissappointing and looks like have no idea how to perform on the pitch. I mean, most of his passes are average at best and not more than 5 metres length. And yet, he tends to slow down the game by taking so long to figure out to whom he should pass. He can't defend, I can't accept that, his injury might have done something about it. But his football IQ is definitely not developing. He quickly turns into new version of Denilson while we used to hope he'll be as good as Flamini. A playmaker who don't know how to create chances and can't hold the ball.

If I were Wenger and I'd rather have Coquelin or even Park in his place.

Still agree all the flack on Ramsey has been unfair. He's been played into the ground after coming back from a broken leg, lost his form and lost his buzz. It's not like some of you were complaining with the shift he put in against most sides at the start of the season when he helped us stay in games. Wenger's 'red zone' bollocks applies to Ramsey.

BTW Zhuge you described Santos perfectly.

I still think Ramsey will eventually come good but, at the moment, he's a liability. We can't afford passengers in the most important game of the season. Btw, I'm tired of this most important game bullshit, but that's what bottlers get unfortunately.

Noway in hell we win.

Only hope for third is Spurs choke against Fulham

Only hope for CL playoffs is Newcastle fall to Everton and pray Bayern topple Chelsea.

Can't wait for the day we're rid of Wenger.

Their defending today doesn't inspire much confidence... there seems to be two sides of Bayern, a good Bayern who are focused and can compete with everyone in CL, and BL Bayern, Dortmund's bitches time and time again.

COME ON ARSENAL!

PULL YOURSELVES OVER THE FINISHING LINE YOU PERENNIAL UNDERACHIEVERS!

EDIT: I'm hoping for a 1 - 0, Tunis. Not especially difficult, either.

I've sometimes heard that football coverage in England is quite limited at times. There was an article in this Australian newspaper which said football coverage is better here than in England as viewers have access to every single live EPL match screened all season long, just by pressing the red button on their remote and choosing whatever match they want.

Of course our disadvantage is the late time-slots.
