Arsenal fans on Twitter agree with Merson’s comments on their title chances

Arsenal fans on Twitter are all fairly realistic about their club’s ambitions this season. It’s nailed on that they won’t be in the title race, yet they’ll be challenging for a top-four spot with Chelsea and Manchester United, and Paul Merson has gone further with it, claiming that they won’t win for the title for 20 years.

These bold comments come as Arsenal look to the transfer market. The Gunners are probably looking to bring in another one or two players over the mid-season window, but in reality, they’re a long way away from having a squad that can challenge for the Premier League title, even if Unai Emery is doing a brilliant job at trying to keep the side competing on a budget.

However, the fans can’t help but agree with Merson. The ex-Arsenal player often comes in for a lot of criticism for some of his sound bites when talking about his former club, yet this time around, whilst his negativity is there, the fans are in agreement. The way things are going, financially Arsenal look miles away from the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City, who will no doubt be battling for Premier League titles for years to come.

Whilst the Gunners rarely agree with Merson, these comments are ones that they just can’t ignore, and they have to agree with their former striker.
