Is this live on TV? Going to watch the Rangers V Hibs game but will record this if so. Arsenal will win, guarantees them a top 3 finish and no messing about for Champions League qualification. Can see Sunderland making it hard for them though, a point makes them safe but it'll be squeaky bum time on the last day for them I reckon.

Arsenal 2-1 Sunderland

Here's a fun little table.



We're actually more shit than we were last season. Who knew.
It's easy to forget how many points we dropped at the start of the season. We only won 2 of our first 8 which is pretty tragic. We didn't win 3 in a row until January/February. Pretty much the flip of last season.

Yeah I'm not actually that surprised, and I also haven't forgotten that we were really good for a lot of last season. Just funny how recently we've been portrayed as all grown up and Chelsea's nearest challengers, when we're actually doing worse than the team who lost 6-0, 5-1 and 6-3 last season.

Diabolical game. It'd be good if we had Podolski for games like this. Someone you sort of just set up 30 yards out, like a trebuchet outside city walls, and he just pelts it from miles out. None of our team will do that. It's just tippy tappy. OH MY GOD WHAT HAVE I BECOME

Players looked like they were on holiday already again. Rosicky should have been on about 15 minutes earlier and Walcott shoud have started. The first half was dreadful AGAIN when we played AGAIN without a proper winger.

Still, 3rd all but secured and no injuries for the cup final.

Arsenal had it down as a two horse race a month ago....they're now more than happy with finishing 3rd. The fall of the great Arsenal Football Club continues to roll.

Did not see that result coming thought Arsenal would have picked up an easy 3 points, good point from a Sunderland point of view!

Tbh, bar Hull I think pretty much every team in the league is mentally on their holidays now (including the one team that's trying its hardest to get relegated and the three teams who are desperately trying to get out of playing in the Europa).

I'm happy for Advocaat - I've always been apathetic towards Sunderland but since he's come in I've been hoping they do well, he seems like a genuinely nice bloke in the interviews I've seen.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.

Hard luck Arsenal... Made a valliant late effort to drive down to their favourite fourth place, but looks like they'll come up just too high.

And that's why Arsenal won't become serious title challengers until they sign a goalscorer.
All these playmakers but not one person can put the ball in the net.

Credit to Sunderland, they did well to gain the point.

Won a few quid by guessing a 0-0 draw so I'm pleased :)
