Arsenal will need another flying start to the coming season

We still have a few weeks until the new season begins. Until then, the Gunners have a US Pre-season to look forward to, as well as other transfer transactions to finalise, both incoming and outgoing. Nonetheless, I can’t help but think about next season. Specifically, I can’t help but think about the opening three games of next season:

Saturday, August 12: Nottingham Forest (home)
Monday, August 21st: Crystal Palace (away)
Saturday, August 26: Fulham (home)

Don’t you believe those are nine points in the bag? Arsenal’s performance in these games could be important to their title challenge next season.

Last season, Arsenal led the standings after winning their first three games. With three big wins to get themselves in the rhythm, they ended up having their best run in the league. In actuality, they would have won the season if they had ended it the way they started it.

In the 2021–22 season, losing their first three games cost the Gunners a berth in the top four, as they did not have enough points to beat their North London rivals Spurs to fourth place, finishing fifth.

With the additions of Kai Havertz, Declan Rice, Jurrien Timber (and other expected acquisitions), as well as “recharged” Arsenal stars like Saka, Martinelli, Odegaard, and Saliba, the Gunners will not be taking any prisoners next season. After a dismal end to last season, winning the league next season is undoubtedly the absolute minimum for the Gunners.

  1. OT There are worrying reports that the Declan Rice deal has hit snags – mainly from WHU, who are wanting The Arsenal lawyers to stop delaying the transfer.
    Sky is the main reporter of this and I just hope it is not true.
    Anyone else seen this and /or can comment further?

    1. Yes Ken I saw it earlier today and before others come piling in blaming Arteta and Edu, it’s apparently our lawyers not yet signing off on the wording of the contract. I must admit I’m not too bothered about it and sure it will be sorted. Perhaps Arsenal are just giving WH payback for forcing the price up 😉

    2. Ken I really don’t want us to spend that much on Rice at the beginning but if we eventually fail to get him it will be one of the most embarrassing transfer in the history of football. So we better not mess this up.

    3. Apparently West Ham are waiting on this deal to be completed before they start to bring in new players and can’t until then.

      Like GB said can’t help but think there might be some housery going on after the way they tried to slander the club via the media calling our 1st bid for Rice embarrassing and being so public about the whole transfer because it definitely wasn’t coming from Arsenal’s end plus all the other shenanigans.

      What am hearing is that Arsenal and West Ham has come to 100% agreement.

      My understanding is that Arsenal lawyers are in the process of going through the deal with a fine tooth comb, before signing, seems the fine prints are extremely small

      The general believe though, it’s at a point of no return.

  2. The first six games are quite winnable, am gunning for 18 points after the first six games.

    The game at the MetLife, should gives us a good understanding of the team chemistry.
