11 points is the gap between Arsenal and Leicester, but perhaps more worryingly for Arsenal fans is the 6 points gap between us and Tottenham. Arsenal do have a game in hand so those gaps could be reduced to 8 and 3 with we catch up on matches. Sp*rs may seem catchable but Leicester seemingly have an unassailable lead. Or do they?
Malcolm Sterling is a life-long Gooner with an appreciation for defensive midfielders and "seeing games out". Favourite players include Emmanuel Petit, Gilberto and Michael Thomas. Hates social media more than he hates "that poxy radio clown" but loves horses more than Michael Owen and enjoys a football flutter. Malcolm misses Highbury more than he can express despite only managing to visit fewer times than he's been to the Emirates.
Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger spoke in his Friday press conference today and bore the sad news that Santi Cazorla is progressing slowly and wouldn't be back until April.

Project youth at Arsenal failed miserably with most of Arsenal's best players leaving for richer shores and greater chances of silverware and many promising youngsters leaving before their prime. It's no secret that Arsenal need a fair few players in the summer, as they have for time immemorial, but this season has shown a weakness to Arsenal beyond the '2 players and we'd walk the league' opinion that's circled the Emirates for 4 seasons.
