What do Arsenal need this Summer to be title contenders by CJ
Arsenal are 18 points behind Man Utd and 5 points behind Man City, however both teams have a game in hand on us so the question is realistically how far, in footballing terms, we are behind Man Utd and Man City.
Last week’s game against Man Utd showed us that this current group of players under this current manager have the desire and the quality to compete with very best – but don’t have the required mentality that’s needed to win a major championship. United had nothing to play for and in that 1st half we absolutely dominated them. We were quicker to the ball, we were closing them down and were passing the ball quickly and accurately, but then Man Utd showed why they were champions and why we are not even contenders right now. .......Read the full article here

The Norwich boss Chris Hughton is getting ready to face Arsenal this evening at Carrow Road, and after conceding nine goals in their last two games, he is well aware that his team have a mountain to climb to try and get anything from Arsene Wenger’s team who are unbeaten on the road this season.
Hughton is certainly full of praise for Wenger and is extremely impressed with his success no matter who is playing on the pitch. “We know we are up against a wonderful team who have added already to what was a very good squad,” he said. “Defensively, they have started the season very well and they are on the back of a good result at West Ham. We certainly know the qualities they have but we have to have our game plan on the day and make it as difficult as we can. .......Read the full article here

The art of overreaction! by KJ
This Arsenal team started off fantastically after a draw at the Britannia. Games were won at Anfield against Liverpool as well as demolition of newly promoted Southampton at the Emirates. However, they weren’t really a test of what this side could do. Fortunately, we found out soon enough with the tie against Man City at the Etihad. Arsenal passed with flying colours personally. They outplayed the Champions in their own backyard and were able to get a well-deserved draw. .......Read the full article here

We obviously didn’t have a winner of last weekends Predict The Score competition thanks to the weather, so we will quickly move on to the next “Biggest Game of the Season”. By the law of averages Arsenal are due a win against their Blue neighbours, and if the Gunners are going to be serious contenders for the title, a win here would be a good start!
So before we go on to the competition I would first like to thank this weeks sponsor, which is CasinoDave.com.

The Czech midfielder Thomas Rosicky was instrumental in Arsenal’s Champions League demolition over Shakhtar Donetsk, and he thinks it is time for the Gunners to carry that form over into the Premier League, starting with this weekends crunch match against moneybags Manchester City.
Many considered that Arsenal were unlucky to lose to Chelsea a few weeks ago, but Rosicky says that they can’t use that excuse again this weekend, they just have to assert their superiority, as they did against Shakhtar.
“It’s a massive game. We couldn’t wish for a better result before this game and we want to do better than against Chelsea,” he said. “I think this team will show it. It was the same old story against Chelsea. How we presented ourselves there, we were very disappointed. .......Read the full article here
