It's that time of year when the BBC pundits and commentators all name their top 4, 40 different football people predicting who they think will finish where in the top 4.
Arsenal get 11 votes to finish 4th, 0 for 3rd, 0 for 2nd and surprise surprise 0 for top spot :-)
It's the first time I've seen this particular poll where absolutely no one gives us a chance of competing for the title in the season ahead, there are usaully one or two prepared to say Arsenal won't be too far away this time.
I'm always interested in what other people see as with your own club we all tend to be either too optimistic or too pessimistic depending on how happy we are with the manager summer signings etc.
But for not 1 out of 40 tips us as top 3 candidates does say a lot about how for those without those special Arsenal glasses see things and that we still have an awful lot to do in the closing weeks of this transfer window.
For any Arsenal fan without those glasses it's looking like another long tough season ahead.

Gunner I don't think Leicester would have got many votes in their winning season, so opinion doesn't win o lose you anything. But the reason that we aren't fancied at all is because nothing has changed, so nothing is expected. The same things happen repeatedly season after season and why should this season be any different. We will struggle for top four that's obvious and we have a lot of unsatisfactory problems going on that will make it even harder. We haven't got the best team and we haven't got the best manager in the league, why should we win it, or even improve. What has been done to improve us that much that we look better.

We will get top 4, but it's not enough for a club as big as ours.

We have a top 4 manager, nothing more, nothing less.

Couldn’t agree more with you Steve. Nothing ever changes at The Arsenal. I have tried to refrain from posting until I fell more positive about the season ahead but as you say same manager, same board of directors, so many contracts still unsorted and players to sell. We have been left behind by more ambitious clubs who are prepared to spend their money. We have one of the richest owners in the world so don’t tell me we can’t compete if we had the desire to. We will keep on penny pinching on buying players until the one person we don’t penny pinch on when it comes to wages, i. e. Arsene Wenger goes. Still COYG.

Based on the quality run all these so called pundits have been on over the last year or two G62 I consider it a blessing that none have tipped us to succeed. let's hope we turn out as the Brexit vote of football!
