If we don't win against West Brom then we don't deserve top four place

Tonight's game against bottom-placed West Brom is the biggest league game for Arsenal so far this campaign.

Nothing other than a victory can be comprehended; it's do or die time.

I've heard a lot of talk coming from Arsenal, now is the time to back it up.

We were given a reprieve by Aston Villa drawing on Sunday. We still find ourselves six points behind them but it could have been eight. We are very lucky.

In many respects West Brom are like Arsenal; very pleasing on the eye but light-weight. I hope they stay up because they do play good football.

However, football is a results driven business and the pretty football will mean nothing if Arsenal end trophy less, out of the top four and West Brom are relegated.

We have been given an opportunity to put some real pressure on Aston Villa who sit above us. If we don't beat West Brom then we don't deserve a top four place.

I don't mean any disrespect to West Brom for saying that, I mean Arsenal have been given a chance to put recent results right.

Tonight could make or break Arsenal's top four ambitions and I'm backing them to make it.

Keep it Goonerish.............

Agreed. If we cant beat the team at the bottom of the league then we are finished this season.

What pisses me off is Villa really are shit and it says a lot for that doesn't it?

Sitting below a shit side. We must be really shit!

"Arsenal will finish top four". You can't back that up, you're just in denial mate. It's worth reading this from The GREAT Alan Smith " http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-1158796/Arsenal-legend-Smith-tells-Wenger-days-numbered-Gunners-fail-again.html?ITO=1490 ". It's so true and this guy doesn't BS! It can happen to Arsenal. It's happened to Newcastle Unt, Leeds and many more... Lee
