What I want to know is this: exactly what happened in the dressing room at half time? Any ideas? Was it even legal?

The first half was one of those end of season games between two mid-table sides with nothing to play for. Only it shouldn't have been. Sure, the odd bit of skill here and there, but generally looking more like twenty two footballers who had never met before.

I am not a fan of the term "must win game" which we have heard so often (including tomorrow's "title decider" -as if!) but today really is a must win. No excuses, no silly mistakes, nothing but victory is acceptable.

We need silverware to bring the club back to the fans. The bitching from the Me Generation who have grown up with the ludicrous premise that "second is losing" demand a Cup and Arsenal have an excellent chance to keep them quiet for a while.

Same Old Story For Wenger And Arsenal

Whoscored.com took an in-depth look this week at another end of season slump by the Gunners.

A couple of things stand out in the post.

Arsene Wenger made a decision a year ago that he wanted a small squad, and that decision is really coming back to haunt him. When Arsenal went to Bayern in the Champions League last month, they did not even have enough fit players to make up a full subs bench.

‘Arsenal Haven’t Got A Winning Mentality’ – Gunners’ Fading Title Mirage Leaves Santi Cazorla With His Eyes On The Exit

By Chris Wright

As anyone who had the misfortune of setting through their woefully submissive performance against Everton at the weekend will duly attest, Arsenal are feeling mighty sorry for themselves at the moment.

The Gunners spent a significant period of the early season on top of the table, though, alas, their title aspirations have proven to be little more than a mirage created by a heady cocktail of Aaron Ramsey briefly hitting the form of his life before Christmas, a smidgen of momentum and, arguably, afavourable early fixture arrangement.

End of the Difficult Games

Another must win game? Of course not, we can afford to lose and still get a top 4 spot. Yes, I know that mathematically Everton would be favourites if they win today but they have some difficult games ahead and will certainly drop points if they don't and win what will be 12 games in a row then they deserve to be in the CL, plus if any team is to take our 4th place then I would like it to be Everton.

Aaron Ramsey Set To Become Arsenal’s Second Highest Paid Player

Soccer Tickets Online at related • 0 views

Aaron Ramsey is expected to sign a new five-year contract with Arsenal this week that will pay him in excess of £100,000 a week, more than doubling his current salary and making him the second-highest paid player at Arsenal, behind only Mesut Özil.

Ramsey had more than two years remaining on the deal he signed in December 2012 but it is a measure of how highly Arsène Wenger regards the 23-year-old midfielder that the Arsenal manager was keen to extend the player's contract at the earliest opportunity as well as approve a significant wage increase.

Ramsey on the way back + Arsecast 311

Morning all and welcome to Friday.

It's unusual for us to get anything like good news when it comes to injuries, so the announcement yesterday that Aaron Ramsey could be back for the trip to Everton was like a bolt from the blue (hopefully one into the blues on Sunday also).

Aaron and Nacho Monreal are back training with the squad, so that is good news.
