There it is again, that wicked hope. Arsenal beat Man U on the day that Liverpool stuttered to a draw and suddenly there it is again, the hope that we might finish in the top four. To finish in the Champions League places would in turn give us hope over the transfer market this summer.
I’ve long thought of a top four finish as a league of its own and finishing below fourth as a sort of relegation. This has been an infernal season for Arsenal and I wonder. If Arsenal finish in the top four and win the FA Cup, both of which are huge asks, would we have had a successful season?
