Being a Gooner it is easy to get wrapped up in all things Arsenal and ignore what is going on at the other clubs trying to win the Premier League title. The long and short of it is, however, that even though Arsenal will go to the top of the table if we win away at West Bromwich Albion tomorrow, it will be a short lived spell on top if Manchester City win their own game later in the day.
First of all you have to decide whether the former Arsenal forward and current TV pundit Charlie Nicholas has a point and if he does, whether it is a big problem for Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players to overcome. The fact that the Scot made his claim about the Gunners before we struggled to a draw in the north London derby certainly supports the theory he put forward that Arsenal are still suffering the same problems that affected us last season.
Well we have only played one round of the International matches, and only have Arsenal players scored quite a few goal (as in Walcott, Cazorla and Sanchez) but suddenly our opponents have become severely weakened. Is this the year where injuries actually work in our favour for a change?

Dear Gooners, I write this in response to the clamour from many Arsenal fans on this site, half of whom believe we have no chance of improving our league position, unless we secure a ‘world class’ centre forward.
