Would you like some cheese with that whine? by Big Gun
I know I am jumping the gun a bit here by assuming that Arsenal will continue to be more like the side we saw win away to Crystal Palace last week, rather than the one that slumped to a dismal defeat at home to West Ham, but the end of last season and the way we were playing in pre-season has given us good reason to think that will be the case.
When Arsenal finished off a very strong second part of last season in style with our demolition of Aston Villa at Wembley. It made the Gunners the most successful club ever in the FA cup and gave people the belief that Arsenal were finally looking capable of winning the Premier League again.
With our form good and our confidence high, Arsenal fans are understandably looking up the Premier League rather than over our shoulders. So it is the two teams that finished above the Gunners, Chelsea and Man City, that we are looking at as the main obstacles to a Premier League title.
For those Arsenal fans out there who fancy a flutter, you can still get a pretty good price of around 5 to 1 for Arsene Wenger to steer the Gunners to a first Premier League title since 2004 and I reckon those odds will drop quickly once the manager adds another couple of new signings to the squad.

The transfer window, so far, may not have gone according to the script for the Gunners supporters. Most, if not all, of the fans were happy to welcome Petr Cech to the squad early in the window. For a change, everyone thought Arsene Wenger will move quickly and finalize his targets before the pre-season tour kicks in.
The signing of Petr Cech signaled intent to the transfer market that Arsene Wenger is looking to mount a serious challenge to the Premier League. Now, the next step is to strengthen other areas that require immediate attention.
