At the end of the day...

Arsenal need a proven goalscorer who could score 20+ a season

The supporting striker have to score 12+

and the midfield have to chip in with about 10 goals from the 4-5 men running the show.

All big teams with any sort of title ambition have the above.

I still find we need a good goalkeeper and a good central defensive midfielder with steel to cover Gilberto Silva.

We have the pretty beat and flick men.

Adebayor have to learn the art of scoring goals and Van persie have a real task ahead of him.

We need to buy a Big fwd and a Big defensive midfielder.

But once Wenger is there...we have plenty hope.



Plenty men memory short.  They forget that Arsenal youth team reach the League Cup final without the help of senior team players.

Touches, Diaby providing that steel that we lost when Viera left.

Van Persie is going to have a monster season.

Denilson (the U-23 Brazilian center midfielder) played well last year and will step up.

Hleb is now fully acclimatised to the English league so look for big things from him too.

Has Rosicky even started to show what he can do?  Watch this space.

Wenger signed the Polish keeper Lucasz Fabianski.  If anyone knows talent it is Arsegne.  Lehmann has one more good year left in him. 

With all that being said.....

We need a central defender in the worst way.  THAT is what I am concerned about.

Arsenal will challenge for honors this season as always.  Look for a top 3 league finish.


I would like to presribe a dose of reality.....

-------------------------------------
The only proven star player left on that side now is Fabregas. You need stars to win you trophies.

A good defense is always more important than a potent attack.  Central defense of Gallas and Toure are a good pairing, but the cover is poor. Senderos and Djorou hardly inspire confidence, and in a long 60+ game season, good cover is needed in these key positions.

Arsenal is making no solid investment in the team geared at pushing for the league title, whilst all other teams are strengthening their teams. Gallas and all done start griping already.

This is Lehmann fall off year since he really eh have nothing to play for this year. He old plus international career over. Look out for some howlers early in de season before Fabianski step in.

The club is in disarray. The board dont know if they selling the team. Wenger won't commit and still sour over the David Dein issue. The franchise player Henry buss out. All in all, it ent no feel-good factor around Highbury these days.

Wenger doesn't understand the value of experience in a squad, hence his 1 yr contract after 30 policy.. Looks like Ljungberg out de door next once again devoiding de side of maturity and experience..

Arsenal will be competing for 4th/5th place this year
----------------------


Now I advise to take this dose twice daily with meals to prevent recurrence of hallucinations about pushing for any titles this year. Take as advised and see me again next May.

The Appiah rumor was around before the start of last season too. And reports are claiming that Appiah has turned down other moves because he wants to move to Arsenal in particular.

I agree with Jahyouth that central defense is Arsenal's weak area.  End of last season they were even using Gilberto as a center back. IMO, Senderos and Djourou are not quality enough cover. Reports say that Sagna can play across the back line (dont know enough about him to comment), so maybe thats an option since Arsenal already has Eboue, Hoyte and Gilbert in the right back position.

Allyuh lose ljungberg for a measly 3m pounds??

Tell dem freddie, tell dem....


West Ham signs Ljungberg from Arsenal

http://msn.foxsports.com/soccer/story/7046354

LONDON (AP) - West Ham signed Fredrik Ljungberg from Arsenal on Monday, ending the Sweden captain's nine-year stay in north London.

The 30-year-old midfielder had been Arsenal's longest-serving player, scoring 72 goals in 328 games, but started just 16 Premier League matches last season because of injury.

The Hammers agreed to pay a fee that could rise to as much as 3 million pounds (US$6.2 million; €4.7 million), with Ljungberg signing a four-year contract.

Ljungberg becomes the second high-profile player to leave the Gunners since the end of last season, following Thierry Henry, and becomes West Ham's fifth acquisition since it narrowly avoided demotion from the Premier League.

"Two years ago when I signed my last contract, we talked a lot about the future," Ljungberg said. "We talked about buying top players ... but that never really happened.

"When Thierry left this summer, it felt a little bit like the end."


West Ham has signed Craig Bellamy, Scott Parker, Julien Faubert and Richard Wright for close to 20 million pounds (US$41.2 million; €29.8 million) since it beat Manchester United on the last day of the season to secure its topflight place.

Ljungberg joined Arsenal in September 1998 from Swedish club Halmstad for 3 million pounds (US$6.2 million; €4.7 million) and scored on his debut as a substitute against Manchester United.

He twice won the Premier League and won three FA Cups with the Gunners.

"I'd been there nine years, almost 10 years," Ljungberg said. "It's a big thing for me, but I want to go forward."

I have always said the sign of a true fan is to stick it out through thick and thin.

ALL big sides have had periods of a slump in form, where they didn't win anything, where they were rebuilding. Anybody who says otherwise only following de EPL since 1999.

There was a time when Man U was in disarray and they wanted Fergie head. Allyuh forget bout dat? They wasn't winning boo!

Chelsea was all but gone from de top flight in de EPL until Abrahamovic buy dem, and dey get big money to spend.

Even Liverpool, that great champions league winner has had some quiet years. More than most of the other top teams tbh.

Like allyuh forget just 2004 Arsenal won de double, and without losing ah damn game all season. Allyuh memory short.

Arsenal will rise again. They will get de big names again. They will win things again. Life is a cycle and our time will come again.

Viva la Arsenal!!!!!

Wenger knows when to fold em.

The decline of Ljungberg
By Duncan Alexander -  Created on 23 Jul 2007
PREMIERSHIP SEASON 2007-08
Arsenal are 40/1 to win the Premiership and the Carling Cup. Click for more special markets!

Fredrik Ljungberg
The news that long-serving Arsenal midfielder Freddie Ljungberg has left the club to move to West Ham United was not unexpected but it will be a sad day nonetheless for many Gunners fans.

The Swedish international had racked up nine seasons under the tutelage of Arsene Wenger but leaves just a year before he would have been due a testimonial.

But perhaps it was the perfect time for Ljungberg to depart, before his reputation at the North London club had became permanently sullied, for the past two campaigns have rarely seen him hit the heights that were once his trademark.

  1998-99 1999-00* 2000-01 2001-02 2002-03 2003-04 2004-05 2005-06 2006-07
Appearances 16 26 30 25 20 30 26 25 18
Goals 1 6 6 12 6 4 10 1 0
Goals/game 0.06 0.23 0.20 0.48 0.30 0.13 0.38 0.04 0.00
Shooting Accuracy 53% 63% 55% 57% 67% 51% 70% 54% 50%
Goal Assists 0 2 6 4 1 5 8 3 0

Indeed, in his final two terms at Arsenal, Ljungberg scored only one goal, a paltry return from a player who twice racked double figures in a single season.

Interestingly, Ljungberg's shooting accuracy never fell below 50% in his time at Arsenal but the goals simply dried up in his latter years.

2006-07 also saw him fail to create a Premiership goal for the first time since his debut campaign.

Ljungberg also managed a mere 18 games last season, only one more than Thierry Henry, another Gunners deserter this summer.

And while Henry will plan to add to his glittering reputation at Barcelona, the feeling persists that Ljungberg has used his fabled sense of timing to make his move at exactly the right moment.

Imagine Trinidad in an annual Concacaf league. We beat the US both times. Draw with Mexico both times. But we go and drop a set of points against St Kitts, Barbados etc (in games that we should have won) and end up finishing 3rd in league. Half the season Stern was injured. And Kenwyne who had step up and was scoring real goals was injured for a large part of the season too. After the tournament Stern retire.

What you think would be the story? Men would be saying that once we put away the smaller sides we could win the tournament next year. We show that we have the quality when we beat the States. Yea, Stern retire but we miss him for half the season and we still showed class when he wasnt there.

But if is Arsenal you talking about in the same situation, men bawling you delusional.

I am quietly confident that Arsenal CAN challenge but I will wait and see before I start giving man talk. Cause the way I see it Arsenal fans who saying Arsenal will do this and that, eh no different from Man U and Chelsea fans who saying Arsenal will not do this and that.
