“All that could go wrong has gone wrong” – Arsenal legend bemoans “abysmal” Gunners collapse

Posted by

Arsenal legend Michael Thomas has bemoaned the Gunners’ collapse as they now look set to miss out on the top four.

Back-to-back defeats for Mikel Arteta’s side against Tottenham and Newcastle United have all but ended the club’s hope of qualifying for the Champions League.

It now requires a massive stroke of luck for Arsenal on the final day of the season, with Arteta’s side needing to beat Everton, who are fighting for their lives just above the relegation zone, whilst also hoping for an unlikely win for Norwich City over Spurs.

Arsenal hero Thomas is certainly disappointed with how it’s played out, describing the performance at Newcastle in particular as “abysmal”.

“All that could go wrong has gone wrong,” Thomas told CaughtOffside. “The decisions didn’t go the way we needed against Tottenham and the performance was well below par. Spurs didn’t have to be great to win the game and now they’re in pole position to finish fourth.

It’s been a nightmare week for Arsenal

“Following an abysmal performance against Newcastle, Arsenal now have a 1% chance of qualifying for the Champions league next season.

“They need to win against Everton, but it’s not going to be easy against a team who are still fighting for their lives.

“And I don’t exactly hold out much hope that a bottom-placed Norwich team can pull off an unexpected win against Spurs.

“Still, all it takes in football is a 1% chance, so let’s just get the job done and hope for a massive favour.”

  1. I think the Champions league ship had already sailed, for Arsenal, a very poor performance at Newcastle, a pen and red card against Tottenham, no chance.
    Overall disappointed, but happy with the young squad. Five or six experienced players to join, hopefully in the Vieira mould. At least six players to leave.
    We need tough tackler’s and some experience and leadership. I hope the team turn up for the Everton game, overall I expect a better for next

  2. Agree with Jg.The gunnerz need some tough guys 188cm tall at least .
    The epl is the toughest inthe world.So naturally u need guys in the PV mould
    Hopefully Norwich can stifle Kane and Son and beat them like Nu in 2016.
    History can repeat itself

  3. Agreed with the above comments. Arsenal players were knocked all over the park by the stronger New Castle players. Teams have figured out for years now playing physical against Arsenal. I want Bissouma in the midfield. Sign a top striker and give Saliba a chance. Arteta did well. But he needs to grow and become a top manager.
