What hope have they got, regardless of if they win.

That’s the beauty of it. Even hope is diminishing now for the rags. As Kenny Rogers once sang, “the best you can hope for is to die in your sleep”

Three scum players voted into the worst XI team in Spanish magazine Marca.
Can't disagree with their choices though apparently Matthijs de Ligt has been so poor since his move to Juventus that they are calling him the new Phil Jones.

The rags fuck off Sanchez and are struggling for forwards and on his first start for Inter, scores two goals. While Lukaku cant stop scoring for them either. Another masterstroke by Woodward and Ole

The problem with the Rags is this 'United Way'. They all believe this is where they need to get back to but it's a mythical stance that they can never attain until they get the team in that can actually produce consistently good football, from manager to academy player.

Like all good teams it takes a good manager, a shot load of money and a little bit of time, time that the Rags don't seem to have. Thinking about it, they don't seem to have the 2 other factors either.

Long may it continue.

9 points from 7 games. The rags worst start for 30 years since 89/90 when they ultimately finished 13th.

Keep up the good work Ole. Your best work is still to come I feel. Keep holding that wheel

Stop it, people. A draw at home against a team like Arsenal is an outstanding result.

Exactly. Plenty of the very best European teams would do well to grab a home draw from the mighty Gunners.
