Despite a somewhat slow start to the season for Arsenal, we are still not really too far off the top of the Premier League, while Arsene Wenger has also achieved his annual place in the group stages of the Champions League. But you would have to be a fool to think that the way we have performed so far is good enough.
At the same time, we have not been too far away so I have been thinking about how, assuming we will, make that little bit of difference that will make Arsenal really fire again and let us see a team that can challenge for the major trophies.
Firstly, I think that the injury situation already seems better. The Giroud thing was a freak occurence and if that was the final factor that caused Wenger to sign Welbeck then it could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Secondly I think that the likes of Wilshere, Ozil and Cazorla are just getting going and we should not worry that they have not set the world on fire yet.
Thirdly and most importantly, I reckon that having Theo Walcott back and having Alexis Sanchez in the side is going to turn is from an also ran into a serious contender, Charlie. I don’t know about you guys but I cannot wait to see a pacy Arsenal front line with all that creativity behind it. Is it enough for the title though?
