Now we all know that Jack Wilshere is Arsenal through-and-through, but could he really be serious that he believes that Arsenal can still win the title, despite being 18 points behind Man United in eighth place right now, in fact we are only nine points above the relegation places!
The Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has seen his team beat both Liverpool and Man United in recent games, but he is not quite so confident of getting another three points against Arsenal this evening at the Emirates, in fact he thinks that today’s Gunners are even better than the team that whopped Wigan 4-0 earlier this season.
The Premier League may only be seven games into a 38 game season, but already Arsenal seem to have blown their chances of winning the title, well we have haven’t we lets be honest. Even Liverpool’s Luis Suarez says his team can’t win the title so what chance have we got. Even the all important finish of fourth spot looks out of reach right now. So what do the bookies make of our chances today.
The Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is rumoured to be the surprise target of Blackburn Rovers this summer. Although the club is struggling to avoid relegation the Lancashire club’s owners still have ambitious plans for the club and are ready to bid £15m for Bendtner and give him the promise of guaranteed first-team football.
The ex-Arsenal manager George Graham thinks it is obvious that the Gunners are not going to be good enough to challenge for the top honours unless they replace Manuel Almunia with a top-class goalkeeper, and he doesn’t think they should just be looking at Mark Schwarzer.
