Just like last season, most of the pundits are writing off the chances of Arsenal winning the Premier League title before we have even got started. And the likes of Michael Owen, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher are using the same old reasons to back up their predictions. Namely, that Arsenal have not the power and fighting qualities we need to stand up to the likes of Chelsea and Man City.

Why Arsenal fans need not feel sour about missing out on Fabregas
Recently, Jose Mourinho made a statement trying to bring down Arsenal yet again. He said Fabregas had no intention to return to the Emirates at all this summer. I do not know what sort of mind games ‘the special one’ is trying to play this time but I can assure you Arsenal fans that missing out on Fabregas will not matter much at the end of this season. Here are three main reasons why.
1) We have Mesut Ozil
Apology To Wenger by OE
Good day to all the Arsenal Fans out there, I’m an AKB; I once wrote an article slating Wenger but It wasn’t because I doubted his capabilities but because we were so close to winning the EPL last season, and when the series of injuries came, I couldn’t understand why we did not reinforce. It felt like the right thing to do at that point, but I realized that any player we had opted for would have been a temporary solution & not a permanent one. So to Wenger I render my sincerest apologies.
Review of Arsenal Players, Transfer links, Targets and Rumoured Targets During this World Cup By Jobho
First of all its devastating to see Arsenal’s English players exit the World Cup so early- You can’t blame them, it’s because Roy Hogson did not appreciate the creativity they could have offered the team, so to me its his loss.
As for the German Gunners, they are doing quite okay so far with outstanding performances from our record signing Ozil and our BFG. I hope Wenger will break another record and sign good players this summer. The notion of referring to players as World Class players is far too farfetched for some players after the dismal performance by Diego Costa (though not yet confirmed) and his Chelsea bunch.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to answer this simple question correctly:
Q: Arsene Wenger’s first match with Arsenal was against which side? and what was the final score?
Last season’s result; Arsenal 2-0 West Brom
Arsenal are close to sealing fourth position and a place in the UEFA Champions League for next season. The Gunners are four points ahead of Everton and the race would be over if Arsenal win against the Baggies.
However, the race could be confirmed even before Arsenal kick the ball as Everton face Manchester City at Goodison Park.
While Arsenal are fighting for fourth, West Brom are also in a battle to retain their Premier League status for next year. The Baggies are currently in 15th position with 36 points, just 4 points clear of the drop zone and a win would confirm their stay in the EPL.
In fact does ANY league game ever affect the completely different approach to a Cup Final? I certainly don’t think this one will. For starters Arsene Wenger is expected to start with lots of experienced players in today’s Arsenal squad to keep everything calm in the racxe for the coveted fourth-place Wenger Trophy, but in the wide open spaces of Wembley a younger fitter team will be needed to cope with the full 90 minutes (or longer?).
There is a theory that the bookies are always right, but if that was true, Arsenal would be around mid-table and out of the FA cup by now. The media and so-called football experts have been predicting doom and disaster for Arsenal since the season began, but they also predicted that Tottenham would rule north London this season and knock us out of the Champions League places, so what do they know?
Don’t forget Bradford and Birmingham by Peter Rooke
I know that all Arsenal fans are very exhilirated right now with being the VERY hot favourites to win the FA Cup, while still being in with a shout in the Premier League and the Champions League (for today anyway!) but someone has been brave enough to stick their heads above the parapet and asked the crazy question…WHAT IF….?
Okay he is not an Arsenal fan, in fact he probably hates Arsenal, just as much as we hate him, but Andy Gray has asked how Gooners will feel if we have another Wembley blowout like we did against Birmingham a few years ago:
