Above and below

Just a thought about our apparant inability to beat anyone above us in the league...

Arsenal haven't beaten anyone above them in the league this season. Neither have Man U.

The point i make is that the more teams below us we beat, the further we will rise. Hence, there will be more and more teams below us and less potential games to win against teams above us! But who cares if we're top?!

Applying similar logic, win all our games, we'll win the League!

The logic is quite simple finish above the so called big 4 and we will win the league.

I don’t see the logic in Arsenal not beating anyone above them when they are top of the table!!!

The logic is that the higher you are in the table, the less potential there is to beat a team above you, because there are fewer of them, and more potential to beat those below you, because there are more of them. simple really.

Plus - by beating these teams you are a direct contibutor to their prediciment of been lower in the league.

It pisses me off this cry of well we’ve beaten nobody above us what a load of bollocks did these people who say this really expect Spurs, Bolton even Boro to be were they are? seems to me people are looking for things to moan about you can only beat wot is in front of you.

Closely related to questions arising from the paradoxes of implication comes the radical suggestion that logic ought to tolerate inconsistency. Relevance logic and paraconsistent logic are the most important approaches here, though the concerns are different: a key consequence of classical logic and some of its rivals, such as intuitionistic logic, is that they respect the principle of explosion, which means that the logic collapses if it is capable of deriving a contradiction. Graham Priest, the main proponent of dialetheism, has argued for paraconsistency on the grounds that there are in fact, true contradictions

Certainly can’t disagree with that Andy.
