Arsenal have finally got our spine back!

THE CURRENT ARSENAL FORMATION SHOULD BE THE BASIS FOR NEXT SEASON’S TITLE CHALLENGE by Nairobigooner

Its definitely a good time to be a Gooner, considering the fact that at this time last season we had lost at Anfield, Old Trafford, the Etihad, and most notably Goodison Park. Everton were being tipped to finish in the Top Four at the expense of the Gunners, and it was a bitter experience considering our form at the start of the season.

However, we finished the season on a high – finishing in the Top Four and winning the FA cup. Since then, we have gone on and acquired one of the most lethal players North London has seen for some time in Alexis, and added a couple more talented additions to a previously thin squad.

Finally our squad looks capable of challenging the big boys again for the EPL. Second in the EPL table and having won convincingly at the Etihad and knocked Manure out of the FA at Old Trafford, this team looks to have found a spine, that willingness to battle that separates the men from boys. Having found a new anchorman in Francis Coquelin and a formation that makes us a difficult team to break down, it makes sense to start next season with the same approach to the game. Bearing in mind the number of points that Arsenal pick up against smaller teams, if we pick at least 4 points from each of the teams in the top 6 – then definitely we win the League.

Against lower opposition we can play our fluid passing game but switch tactics against the big teams – like we did against Man City. We have the fastest wingers in England and our fullbacks can also put in a decent flight so that is a good platform for that approach. Retaining Coquelin in the holding role will be key to our early season form, and if Arsene brings in a striker, another strong midfielder and maybe a CB and a GK then we have a good chance of being the champions of England come May next year. With Ozil in this brilliant form, Giroud scoring for fun, Alexis scaring defenders and Coquelin bullying playmakers, then Arsenal will be a force to reckon with next season.

Meanwhile, lets go to Wembley in May and show Aston Villa that the 3:0 and 5:0 scorelines were not just numbers. COYG!!

      Wot we need now is an intimidating figure in our midfield…a wayama type of player….its not by coincidence dat southampton has d best defendive record in the league dis season.

      And I think if ramsey can dictate the game in a way like xavi does and time his run rather dan dwelling in the opponent box…his combination with wayama will be perfect. With the arrays of attacking talents…we need commited central defensive duo.

      No dis respect to le coq….as a matter of fact its abt fighting for d same spot with wayama wch he can win with his talent and determination….there is no harm in creating competition

    Very Well said but we all know Arsene wont sign a striker this summer,hell probably be looking into the Dm role and Gk role,but like he says if that top top player comes,well Alexis speaks for itself,Just have to maintain this form over pre-season and A serious Title challenge is guaranteed

      Signing a Goal keeper???? Can anyone explain to me what is wrong with Ospina so badly that we need a new keeper? U won’t also find a better number 2 keeper than sczeney . So I really don’t get all the talk about us buying a keeper. Ospina has had 1 league loss and that was against Spurs. AS far as i remember he was terrific in that game.

      Same with CB. We have 4 in Boss Gabby Per and Chambers. Experience and youth. Why just buy for the sake of buying? At this rate we may end up with dejan Lovren .

        Good point made I actually dont mind the current Gk Squad weve got,but lets be realistic would Szczeney really want to have another season like this as understudy,remember he has an outspoken former polish international goalkeeper as his father,he wont want to be second fiddle come next season,am okai if he does stay but most likely hell leave,Ospina has done a fabulous job and deserves credit,if wenger wants to keep him as no 1 he might have to look at youth for an understudy,but ive got a feeling he might look for an experienced head behind the sticks,someone to marshall the defence

      You have more chances of getting 15 million for cambell than for getting 5 million on podolski. U need to watch him play to understand. Gervinho took th Italian league by storm. Podolski is taking twitter and Instergram by storm. I like the look of your squad.

      2 new signings in Wanyama and Lacazette.

        Agree with allot but arteta and diaby are likely to stay.
        I don’t think winger wants a wanyama it would make our play negative someone like kondogbia or matuidi makes more sense as they are energetic combative and very good in transition wether attk or def

      If Wanyama claims Arsene wants him then Arsenal will definitely sign Schneiderlin!!!

      Learning from the past. I would be happy with either player though.

        not even sure if we will sign Schneiderlin the way that rumor was talked up. Think about it…
        The talks of signing Chambers, Ozil, Alexis, or Gabby was so faint while the talks of Balo, Falcao, Di Maria, Aurier, etc etc etc and even more etc were so loud. I think AW is gonna sign another diamond in the rough, someone we least expect.

    Arsenal need to be strong on positional play rather than being strong on challenges and play more like Germany with Monreal as Lahm and sanchez as goetz against Chelsea cause once arsenal get that advantage of home support at the start with small probing like isolation of matic and not fabregas cause he should be clumsy at certain uncertain stages for Chelsea and also Welbeck running at ivanovic

        Just double team hazard when he’s on the ball no1 else on Chelsea will do anything with it

          that’s why i think Wenger should probably start Danny on the RW. I know he’s not the best at dribbling, but he will definitely help out on defense and do what he can attacking.

          But then again, I think that’s our real issue. Haven’t scored on Chelsea in a long time, so our attack must be potent.

    We are poising with the lads football aren’t we? They give us big hype and basic reason why we all love this club about.
    I see you love to push that fast forward button to go to Wembley day, but don’t forget that we ain’t secure that 2nd spot yet. So, I like to rewind a bit. Chelsea is ahead. I believe that they are the last fortress we’ve conquer to make clear message to all opponents that we are a serious contender for EPL title next season.
    In the hand of the special Mou(th), Chelsea have been a BIG mental barrier for us from the past and present. That “invincible wanna be manager” (I love this metaphor!) has been trolling us for years. We have to end it here. Lets make this personal guys! COYG!!!!!!

    You always speak about buying another goalkeeper. What has Ospina done wrong? He is quite a decent goalkeeper. Gooner for life.
