Arsenal will surprise everyone and win the league

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.

    me i donot trust wenger what i see is may be he will sell walcot

    I’m not so sure. We are still conceding soft goals. If Cazola gets injured we havent really got back up.

    Although saying that, I’m not impressed with both Manchester clubs, especially United, they look weak all over the park

    Nah, 4th place again. Catch 22 time

  • Mike Somerville

    You’ve got to say: great performance from Giroud, Jenkinson and Cazorla had a blinder! Top teams will drop points at Upton Park…

  • Mystical Mike

    Cazorla is class, world class. question is, when will Barca be in for him?

    I’m liking Jenkinson more each game. He’s very quick and good going forward

  • Mystical Mike

    plus, we looked a much better side when Walcott came on. Gervinho has no end product. He’s improved but as Merson pointed out, we won’t win anything with him playing upfront

  • Michael Somerville

    Surely some of those youngsters coming through as well? Frimpong and Wilshere could be key if Cazorla picks up an injury.

    agree with a lot of the points in here but a first place finish, are you high!?!! true arsenals midfield looks like the best in the prem at the moment although Chelsea’s is up there. for me Arsenal proved exactly why they wont win the league with their performance against Chelsea. way too many defensive errors and Chelsea didn’t even look that strong and were not playing to the best of their ability in a team that are still integrating new signs in. that is the sort of game arsenal needed to win to in order to win the title. the fact that Chelsea won that game says more to me about their chance of winning the title, granted it is still early days. arsenal have brought in 3 players to replace the irreplaceable RVP, Cazorla is clearly a great signing and something Arsenal have been missing, Giroud and Podolski together will not notch up the goals RVP did although I do think that both players are good signings.

    least we forget the two Manchester clubs and the disposal they have in their squads. plus now that Rooney looks to be occupying a deeper role in the Manchester utd midfield. a midfield that needed strengthening, I feel that they will only gain momentum from that 3-0 win over Newcastle.

    Arsenal would be extremely lucky to finish 3rd.
