I think that because “the race for fourth place trophy” thread has now taken over as the main thread when taking about our league position, shows just how far our expectations have dropped in recent seasons.
Even the most ardent Wenger supporters are resigned to a fourth place fight with our rivals.
This is exactly what the board and Wenger want and it means they won’t have to make the massive investment we need to challenge for the title.
If we finish outside the top four this season with two world class players then imagine what it will be like without them and with the inevitable lack of investment we usually have.
This has been coming for a few seasons.
So we will have to get used to no world class signings, our best players leaving and a lowering of our expectations.
Looking at the amount of posts in this thread rather than “the race for the title” thread, it seems as if most supporters are thinking the same thing.
