That is how Arsenal finished in the league, 15 years before Wenger took up the reins at Highbury. Thanks to fellow Gooner “Saltee” on the Guardian website!
And the 15 years from then have been
1st, 2nd, 2nd, 2nd, 1st, 2nd, 1st, 2nd, 4th, 4th, 3rd, 4th, 3rd, 4th, 3rd
We can argue that maybe the comparison should be made with United, Chelsea or even Man City. But I don’t think any two clubs are alike. They have their own philosophies on how they play, who they buy and how much they will pay.
I think Gooners need to be patient for one or two more seasons more and then complain if we don’t do well. We are no Abrahmovic led club which will give instant justice!!!
