And to think less than two years ago we comfortably beat Arsenal three nil at the Emirates, having also won 1-0 at Villa Park a few months earlier. We're years behind them now.

Weve been behind them for the majority of our existence Id imagine.

Other way round, I think.  They caught up and overtook us in the 1990s, on Doug's watch.

God, when you watch Arteta's Arsenal it really makes me feel that we've been stitched up with Gerrard...
It only took 3 years and 300m.

And an owner that stuck by his manager when their fans were braying for him to be sacked.

Maybe the rumoured 5 at the back is because someone has seen Chambers playing and guessed. Perhaps he'll play him in a holding midfield role.....

I think its because Gerrard had said he might use it at some point in the future, as he was impressed by Bednarek.

A fantastic opportunity to break into the top half of the table. If we win tomorrow evening it will be a very good run of results.

If Cash doesn't make it, please for the love of God, don't put Konsa  at right back. The puppy-chasing-a-balloon levels of ball control at Elland Road last week in the second half was excruciating to witness.

Tonight could be a pivotal moment for our season. A win will mean 4 unbeaten and take us into the top half of the table but a defeat will leave us 2 points and 2 places above the relegation places. So it will probably be a draw.

Depends what you mean by "behind". This is guesswork but I'd imagine prior to 1930 we finished higher than them 90% of the time. From 1930 to 1996 they probably finished higher than us 90% of the time and from 1996, I know for a fact they have finished above us 100% of the time.
