Depending on how quickly the Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez gets back to match fitness and into the swing of the new season, the Gunners will have to manage between one and four games without our best player of last season. And with all the talk of how much our slow start cost us last time and how important it is for us to hit the ground running this year, Arsene Wenger has a big decision on his hands about who to use in that left forward position.
There is an argument that the biggest thing holding back Arsenal Football Club, after the years of financial hardship finally came to an end that is, has been the injury and fitness situation. So the signs that this is now coming to an end with the help of some new conditioning experts on the back room staff is really fostering a feeling of confidence that the team can reach the top again.

There are plenty of Arsenal fans that do not believe we have enough to mount a credible title challenge this season but I am not one of them. I believe our squad is deep and dynamic enough to last the distance this time.
TRANSFER BLUES: UNDERSTANDING THE ARSENAL WAY by Uche
Hello guys, good day to you all. It doesn’t take a genius to decipher that many of us are going nuts about the fact that we are not signing players at the rate that Manchester United and Liverpool are doing. Of course both teams finished below us and needed this transfer window a lot more than we do. This however hasn’t stopped the average Arsenal fan from getting depressed and cursing Wenger.
Jack Wilshere is at the cusp of an interesting season. And he wants to hold crunch talks with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger ahead of the new season. Wilshere wants to discuss where he stands in the pecking order before deciding on his plans.
With Petr Cech being Arsenal’s only arrival of this transfer window, all Gooners are impatiently waiting for some sign from Arsene Wenger that he is possibly targetting a new DM or superstriker, but the signals coming from Le Prof seem to indicate there will be no more new signings.
It was only the first game of pre-season for Arsenal today and playing against a Singapore select XI was never going to be the toughest test for the Gunners. However, it was a great start for us and could hardly have gone better, especially for the young English striker Chuba Akpom who completed the full 90 minutes and capped an impressive performance with a well taken hat-trick.
Having secured Petr Cech as part of Arsenal’s new spine for next season, Gooners everywhere expected Wenger to follow this up with a new DM to compete with Francis Coquelin and definitely a new striker to give Olivier Giroud a rest up front, but now Wenger has revealed why he is in no rush to jump back into the transfer market.
