Looking at the table, a win for Boro would put them 3 points from safety.  A win of at least 2 by the Gunners would put them ahead of Everton on GD and 3 points south of Manchester United for the coveted Europa League spot.

This brings up a curiosity for me.  If Man United win the Europa League, does this take away a spot for the Champion's League from the top 4?

Do the Gunners even care anymore?

That's a very good question.

There's a designated spot in the Champion's League for the Europa League winner, so it would not affect the top 4 in the PL. That's why Spain had 5 teams in this season's CL.

Having Sunday's game be the beginning of the end for Chelsea would be a glorious thing. Go Spurs.

EDIT: They could've had 5, but the 4th place team got knocked out in the final qualifying round by Monaco.

$10 says a grown man falls and cries over a skinned knee.

Any takers?

Change the rules so men can get back into the game after a rest without acting like a bunch of little b*tches.

Any takers that this match end with the Gunners down to 10 and still winning?

If they lose to Boro, then they really deserve to be doomed

No bet.
Now if you want to place odds on which grown man it will be, there might be some interest there.

Reading is third with a GD of 2.  Are Brighton and Newcastle the only teams that want to get promoted?

He's still leading with 5 reads, although 3 of those were for double yellows.
He likes the sight of plasma with his blood

that loving hug on beefcake-forehead giroud would have been a penalty back in september/october

Just a bit offside there, Boro.

Yeah, the refs went all card mad on penalty area shenanigans at the start of the season & now they seem to have turned a blind eye
 
2017-04-17 03:29:36 PM  
wow.  Assistant says the ball went out?  Did not look it, TBH.

Guzan makes an easy save.

If only that last cross had been on target, that was some promising buildup for Boro.

Diving all over the box by Gunners trying to get the penalty.

I think Arsenal should be concerned by how much time Middlesbrough is spending in their half.

They feel like they can score at any time, unlike Boro.

Evening all. I completely forgot about this match...

Also, I hadn't paid attention to how far Arsenal had fallen. How are they going to get back into fourth from there?
 
2017-04-17 03:42:04 PM  
Sanchez with the free kick goal and nobody on Boro moved, not even Guzan.

Sanchez!

An Arse is at Arse,
A farce, a farce, 
And no one can talk to the arse of Arse' 
Especially the farce that is an arse,
The famous Mr. Arse. 

Go right to the farce and ask the arse 
He'll give you the answer that he's an arse. 
He's always a steady and ready dumbarse. 
Talk to Mr. Arse.

To be fair, there was about 8 people in that wall. Surprised Guzan could even see the ball

It would have been nice for the wall to at least jump, but Sanchez had so much up and down on that ball that Guzan was helpless if he was not standing in the center of goal.  The fact that he chose to guard the side protected by the wall leaves me no wonder about why he lost the starting position on the USMNT.
