We’ve been performing terribly in 2016, and consequently we’re once again out of the title race and battling for the fourth spot we love so much. Watford striker Troy Deeney has taken a bit of a dig at us for bottling things again, directing a jibe at iFL TV founder and Arsenal fan Kugan Cassius about our league position.
Having just watched Anthony Joshua win the IFB World Heavyweight title, Deeney was wished good luck in the FA Cup by Cassius. He responded by teasing the Arsenal fan, saying: “Arsenal gonna finish fourth again, yeah?”
While some Arsenal fans may not appreciate the comment, it’s clearly all in good fun. Even the most loyal Arsenal fan can’t deny that we’ve bottled things once again this season, and while third place is still very much in reach, it’s still very possible that we could end up finishing in fourth.
Arsene Wenger has once again made the same mistakes and failed to get the best out of the team, consequently seeing us fall away at the half way mark and missing out on the title to either Leicester City or Tottenham. This is totally unacceptable, and something needs to change.
We don’t want to be the laughing stock of the Premier League, and Deeney isn’t the first to make this sort of joke.

Obviously Deeney can’t say too much, as he plies his trade for Watford – who currently sit 12th in the Premier League. The Hornets obviously aren’t expected to be challenging for the title however, while we most certainly are.
