Secure 4th & Forget About This Crap
Cesc Fabregas believes we need to secure 4th place as soon as possible so we can forget about the monstrosity that has been this season, and we can start with a win against Bolton on Saturday.
The Gunners have gone four league games without a win and the chasing teams are closing fast. Your esteemed editor boldly predicted that Arsenal had nothing to worry about with regards to qualifying for next seasons Champions League, since which we have won one game by a flukey goal.
How stupid do I feel?
Now Fabregas believes we need to consolidate our position, and fast.
"We have to beat Bolton next Saturday," he said. "We have to fight for fourth place to be in Europe next season and then we can forget about this season.
"It is big because they are two points behind us and we need the points if we want to be more calm in the table.
"Every point will be really important for us now. Obviously there are six games to go and we will need to win nearly everything if we are to secure our place in Europe for next season. That is the target from now until the end of the season. We can not fight for anything else so it is our job to make it.
"We have to try and go out to win six games. Then I am sure we will be alright."
