Wenger feels “confident” that Arsenal can “get over the line this year”

To be honest, no one thought Arsenal would be as good as they were last season. Their brilliance took many by surprise.

However, there are big hopes for Arteta and the boys to reach next season.

For the first time in years, Arsene Wenger feels the current Arsenal team is strong enough to challenge for the league title.

Wenger said, “I feel that Mikel [Arteta] is doing well, making the right decisions, and having an organised team who, for me, can now challenge for the championship. We did it last year; let’s get over the line this year.

“I’m confident because last year, with eight games to go, I always felt we would do it. We invested again a lot this year and strengthened the squad well, so overall, I’m very happy with the three signings. We have all the tools to do well and to challenge for the championship.”

The intriguing aspect of Wenger’s comments is that they suggest that Arsenal is strong enough even if they do not continue their summer spending spree. With that in mind, it should astound Arsenal fans how much better the team may be if Arteta can complete the other two or three signings he’s considering.

In any case, Wenger has been in the game far too long to know what a title-winning team looks like. I hope Mikel Arteta and the boys do not disappoint him.

  1. Our owners have invested heavily in the Arteta project and we have the strongest pool of players we have had for some time.Of course others have also spent lavishly, but City apart,it may take our main competitors some time to evaluate the newcomers and field a settled side.In essence, this season could well be our best opportunity to win the League particularly as City look to me to be slightly weaker than they have been.Arteta has impressive playing assets at his disposal, and unless he brings home some bacon this season, his time with our great Club could be over.I sincerely hope he adopts a more mature approach to his team selections than he did last season, when certain players were burnt out whilst others stagnated on the bench.Time alone will tell if he has learnt his lessons but ,like all our true fans, I wish him success.

  2. Get the feeling we need atleast one more defensive mobile midfielder.

    Am anticipating a massive season, surely one of those big mugs is a must.

    1. We should all be anticipating a much more serious campaign this season. I am not scared of City because I feel like we have as good a squad as them. Only down to managers now. Can Arteta out manoeuvre his master? Or will the master always remain the master?

      It’s now up to Arteta to answer that question.

  3. Some EPL club has to stop Man City from winning EPL title 4th times in a row. This club has to be Arsenal which has spent 600 millions.
