What’s Your Prediction For The New Season?

One thing you can never accuse Arsenal of is having a boring summer.

We’ve lost arguably two of our most consistent performers last season, in former captain Robin van Persie and our “defensive” midfielder Alex Song. And there are doubts over the future of Theo Walcott who has yet to renew his contract, although I’d find it hard to think of another top team that would have the patience and even money to invest in him.

But we’ve also brought in several additions, in Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla. They are all very experienced, both at club and international level, and are not particularly young, being 27, 25 and 27 respectively.

So the lack of experience is something that Arsene has addressed.

Thomas Vermaelen is our new captain, and Mikel Arteta (my pick for player of the season last year) is vice-captain.

So on paper at least, things don’t look too bad. We’ve also seen the long-awaited return of Abou Diaby, and should have Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky, Bacary Sagna and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back soon, and they will be (*shudder*) like new signings.

But where will Arsenal finish?

Do we now have the quality to genuinely compete in the Premier League? Or have we lost too many top quality players over the last few summers?

Tell us how you think we’ll do this season here.

For the record, I think we will finish in 4th, which will be an achievement with Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham fighting for the Top 6 places.

    Arsenal to be relegated and Tottenham joining the party because they can’t ever finished higher anyways.

     
  3. City
    Chelsea
    Utd
    Arsenal
    Newcastle
    Everton

    A lot depends on us getting a couple of new signings before the 31st – or having a relatively injury free season. Otherwise, we may struggle for the CL places.

    I am not too down though – I think the overhaul we are going through is the right thing for the club. I have too often seen in the past a lack of focus, and the new players we are bringing in will help to change the annual feeling of inevitability about the Emirates.

    One thing I am very confident of is that we will once again finish above Spurs 😉
