Arsene Wenger is famous for finishing in the Top Four, and more importantly for Arsenal fans, always finishing above our rivals Tottenham in every season since he arrived at the club.
Tony Adams, who was a big factor in Arsenal’s glory days under Wenger, has no doubt that the Gunners will win today and carry on that fine tradition of St. Totteringhams Day!
Adamssaid: “I am sure Tottenham will beat Sunderland. That will mean Arsenal have to win at Newcastle, but they have the capability to do that with the goal potential in the team. .......Read the full article here

Arsene Wenger is in the unusual position of going for three wins in a row this afternoon (in the League anyway), but after last weks emphatic win over Reading the Frenchman is feeling confident that Arsenal can maintain their good form if they maintain their concentration.
Wenger is hoping that the Reading game could be a turning point in Arsenal’s season: “The positive for me was that we played the football we want to play – based on movement and technical quality,” he said. “It’s a good basis to go on from there and show the same qualities again at Wigan. .......Read the full article here

The Arsenal winger Theo Walcott thinks that the Gunners should forget about worrying that Tottenham will finish above them for the first time since the Premiership began, and just concentrate on winning each game as it comes.
Jack Wilshere has already challenged Spurs fans to put up 3000 Pounds to pay to charity if Arsenal finish above them, and Wojciech Szczesny has stated that there is “no way” Tottenham can finish above Arsenal, but Walcott thinks that thinking too much about their rivals’ position could affect Arsenal’s concentration.
He said: “We don’t have to worry about anyone else, we have to concentrate on each game,” .......Read the full article here

It was blindingly obvious to everyone last season (including Arsene Wenger) that Arsenal were just three class players away from being World-Beaters.
Wenger also repeatedly told the fans that the problems were mainly in defence, and “something had to be done”, so with Senderos, Silvestre and Gallas leaving, Arsenal fans expected to see a couple of big, experienced defenders brought in, and of course a goalkeeper.
As much as I don’t like Gallas, you can’t fault his partnership with Vermaelen for most of last season, so he would be hard to be replaced. Well it looks like Kosciely, Djourou and Nordtveit are the incoming players to tighten up the back line. I agree that Koscielny and Nordtveit are promising youngsters, but between them they have just three seasons experience in inferior leagues, and Djourou doesn’t add much to that equation. .......Read the full article here

Arsene Wenger believes that his Arsenal team are in the perfect position to go on and win the Premiership, but even though Burnley have gained just one point on their travels all season, he doesn’t want his team to relax and think that they are just going to have an easy game. In fact he wants them to think the opposite!
“The experience we have from this year is that there are no easy games,” he said. “What looks sometimes easy before the game becomes very difficult during the game. I believe the key to our success now is being capable of focusing during every single game and penetrating ourselves with the idea that this could be a very tricky game. .......Read the full article here
