Why you keep posting the since Xmas table? Don’t the previous 5 months count?
Of course it counts.

I’m highlighting the big improvement in our form, which is evident despite some tricky games / bad luck.

Bodes well for the run-in, particularly when the fixtures get easier. E.g. our last 8 games:

- Sheffield United (a)
- Fulham (h)
- Everton (h)
- Newcastle (a)
- West Brom (h)
- Chelsea (a)
- Crystal Palace (a)
- Brighton (h)

If you’re operating at 6 out of 10 of course that is a big improvement on the 2 that you were doing before. People like to make it sound like it is a drastic improvement when all it really is, is us going back to our pre crap levels.
Yes there have been improvements but it’s not like we are in world beating form. Our play has been mostly the same slow and Laboured with the exception of a few games (today’s and the Man U game).

If we can replicate today’s performance on a more consistent basis then I will say there are improvements. However one thing this team lacks this season is consistency. We can’t seem to get a good run of Wins going.

Next month or so is tricky for us, but then we have some very nice fixtures to end the season.

Weirdly I fancy us more in the coming weeks. I think Burnley will be tough if Arteta rests for the NLD and EL triple right after but otherwise we’ll be in the mix.

I don’t know why but we seem to not turn up in games that we should be winning so after GW 30 I’m not expecting us to pick up 24 points down the stretch or anything.

4 of those wins have come against Newcastle, Brighton, West Brom, Southampton. Leeds are so hit and miss you'd back yourself against them any time. Only the Chelsea and today's game I'd consider as good improvements.

Every time he puts on a balanced team without Bellerin we play well and win matches, but he always goes back and mess it up. If he can change that he may have hope of getting us to where we want to be.

Top job from him today... I’ve been quite vocal about what I feel are his failings, but whatever he’s saying is having the right effect. Outplayed Leicester with the B team, with some good football in there.

Please start Cedric for the rest of the season and then recruit a quality RB this summer. Sell Bellerin.

Gerard Romero / RAC is a good source for Barça, it makes sense too, Arteta checks all the boxes for the type of manager they need right now.

That said, I don't think he'll have any interest in this until he achieves something with Arsenal (more than FA Cup and potentially Europa League). I think he's very invested in this project and we can count on him for a couple more seasons at least, getting this club back to where he knows it should be as he promised when hired. He's also no fool and knows what a mess Barça is at the moment financially.
