Arsene Wenger has been waiting patiently on the sidelines for his time. He has watched his team being dismantled by the worlds rich kids. Clubs backed by entire governments, premium bonds and oil merchants. Clubs not living in reality. Fabregas to Barca, RVP to United, Nasri to City.
And he has stood firm, despite the loud cacophony of Arsenal fans’ bawling and moaning. Wenger has lived within his means and now he will surprise everyone and bring the league to the Emirates against all the sportsbook review odds.
Here are the reasons why this season will be the Gunners’ year:
1. Everyone is scoring goals for Arsenal. Even Gervinho.
2. They have incredibly talented players to come back into the side such as Jack Wilshere, Bacary Sagna and Wojciech Szczesny. When Olivier Giroud starts scoring, which he will, it will feel like a new signing.
3. Manchester City have blown the league already by upsetting the back four and mixing the midfield around too much. Vincent Kompany looks lost at center back. Wenger has given Santi Cazorla the time and patience to impose himself in center midfield. Mancini will not give Javi Garcia and Scott Sinclair the same time to make an impact which will upset the City dressing room.
4. The players that have needed to improve have done so. Carl Jenkinson looks like a new player, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will get better and if Theo Walcott is deployed as a center forward he could be deadly if the likes of Giroud are struggling for a goal.
Arsenal may have looked defensively exposed against Chelsea on the weekend from set pieces, but you can be assured that that will not happen again on Steve Boulds watch. His solid positional style of coaching has already had an impact this season, and you can be sure that the Gunners won’t ship too many goals with Bould at the defensive helm.
