Arsenal spent 38 days in the Top Four of the Premier League this season, but that’s almost twice as many as Manchester United who are probably going to finish there while we wallow in mid-table mediocrity.

To me, it’s remarkable that Arsenal managed as many as 38 days in the top four, not that United have spent so few.

Kudos to them for only spending 20 days up there since this never-ending season got underway.

As long as they can make it 21 on the final day, what does it matter?

As for Arsenal, they are headed for their worst league finish in 25 years. A quarter of a century.

Makes you feel proud, doesn’t it?

Still, at least we’ll look amazing as we collect the FA Cup next weekend.
