      If you'd said this time last season Arsenal would be top of the league by 5pts and we'd be languishing in 8th and out of all the competitions, you'd be hounded off the forum. How the f*ck has this parallel universe been allowed to happen? We don't need Arthur, we need time travellers!

      We have time travellers. Most the squad ended last season 29 years old and came back pre season 42 years old.

      We might never know what he could do here. We paid nearly £5m loan fee I believe with an option to buy. Well we won't buy him and he might get a few end of season games. Klopp and his team must've seen something in him to bring him in.Tried everyone might as well give Arthur lad a shot.

      He's off in the summer so what's the point? Top 4 is well gone so might as well give Jones an extended run or find a kid from the academy to get a bit of time than play Arthur.

      Wow we're 8th in the league behind f***in Villa.

      Tragic.

      Anyway I want to see Arsenal win the league over City so not too fussed if they beat us.

      Would rather we finish mid table than a godawful Europa League spot.

      My opinion too. I want us to attack PL next season without baggage.

      None whatsoever,  soon people understand that the better.

      People talk about him playing in midfield because they see him as a defensive liability at right back.

      Forgetting that in Klopp's system one of the midfielders' primarily responsibilities is to provide defensive cover for the outside backs when they go forward.

      We sound like spoilt kids but I wouldn’t be too bothered if arsenal won today either.

      I would much prefer to see them win the league than 100 breaches FC. Presumably everybody else feels the same.

      But we need to think about ourselves before anybody else. We’ve seen how drained this squad is this season. Going to Azerbaijan on a Thursday night isn’t going to help that.

      Of course we get a champions league spot if we won it, but with only playing one game a week without it and injuries/tiredness being far less likely, then I’d be amazed if we didn’t comfortably finish in the top four anyway.
       
      With all that said, despite being a whopping 30 points behind them, I do think we’re a much better side than arsenal and I wouldn’t be surprised to see us slap them today and give them a bit of a reality check. Been waiting all season for it to happen to them and I think today is going to be that day.

      I don’t get this attitude where a lot of fans would be happy for us to lose so a.) we don’t qualify for Europe and b.) city don’t win the league.

      I don’t personally care who wins the league and I want us to finish as high as we can.

      As for todays game I think they will cause us all kinds of problems. A draw I think is likely but it could be 3-2 to someone.

      Because sometimes in life you have to take a step back to take two steps forward and football is no different.

      Being in the Europa league or even worse that conference cup is only going to hinder any chance we have at winning the league next season.

      Winning the league next season? Not a chance. Too many players need replacing and then need to gel.
      In my opinion we need to finish as high as possible and then treat every completion with respect.

      Playing one game a week with klopp in charge? We have every chance.

      The problems we’ve seen this season is down to playing too many games. The likes of Trent and Fabinho badly need a breather but you want them to play in a competition that doesn’t benefit us in any way, to affect another competition that does?

      You only have to look at the teams in England who play in the Europa league. The vast majority of times, their league form is horrendous.

      And it’s happened to us.

      Fatigue both mentally and physically is also a big part of what's going on this season.

      As much as the issues are there I'm other aspects these players have been flogged to death

      The measure of the man.

      He is but he's far from alone.

      The club from top to bottom has been a mess this season and it needs fixed very quickly.

      Tired?...We were poor in the first game of the season. Also, both Arsenal and Man U. league positions not too shabby for a Europa teams.

      I personally think we will win this one.  I really don't like the comparison of Arsenal with our 2019 and 2020 team, thats almost dis-respectful. We had won the champions league while accumulating 90 plus points, and subsequently
      winning the title next year while Arsenal haven't won a f**king thing yet.

      These pundits are hyping them all too much .
