What are the chances of silverware for Arsenal next season?

Arsenal will be fighting on four fronts next season, the three domestic competitions and of course, the Europa League.

So, what can we expect for next season? Well, it is far too early to say, especially when the transfer window has only just opened up, who knows what signings we will land and what impact they will have but that has not stopped the bookies from putting up markets on the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League.

So, let’s start with the big one, the Premier League.

We are a best-priced 50/1, actually, that is quite damning that we are priced so high and then to see Spurs as low as 12/1 is just rubbing our noses in it and the really sad thing is, I do not see 50/1 being value.

Talking of poor value we are a best-priced 11/8 to finish top-four and I will not be touching that either, just too low for me.

OK, the Europa League is better, there we can be had at odds of 6/1 and I reckon that does look tasty, no way will we be that price after the group stages and they are usually easy to navigate.

That is probably going to be the only bet I will place pre-season, I will find the best offers from a bookies at thumbsupbonus and then hit that 6/1 hard. I mean, Man Utd are second favourites at 9/2 with any Champions League team the favourite at 4/1 and we showed last season and the season before that when it comes to the Europa League, no matter the team, we go far.

In the FA Cup we are available at 14/1 and under Arsene Wenger I would have taken those odds all day long but I just do not feel that Unai Emery has the same affinity for the domestic cups, though I may consider a little wager later on.

Finally, the League Cup, again we are 14/1 and in that competition, Emery is even less interested and I will be avoiding that tournament until the later stages in the hope that the manager takes it more serious.

In terms of picking up silverware, it seems the bookies have the Europa League as our best chance and I have to agree with them.

There are a couple of other markets that will be interesting to look at. like the Golden Boot but until the transfer window has been firmly shut I am not going to risk a penny on that market, I mean, we could yet sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

In conclusion, there are some hefty prices about Arsenal but that just tells you how far we have dropped in terms of being competitive with the Europa League being the exception.

    Slim then…..

    1. GunneRay says:

      Lol Sue.. About as slim as Kate Moss’ ass!!

  2. Drew says:

    We have fallen so far behind the Spuds, it’s depressing!

  3. S.J says:

    Our only chance for a trophy will be the FA cup and the Europa League but it will be a difficult task for Emery. Let’s see the players that will be brought in then we see where we stand

  4. Bur says:

    With the current squad no chance of any silverware, our only chance is if they use silverware in the canteen.

  5. Where'sMyTop4TrophyGone? says:

    It’s not fair to say anything before August. Who knows, maybe the club manages to offload 350zil, Mkhi, Mustafa (Cadillacs and Dinosaurs anybody?), Elneny, and Jenkinson. That way, the club might strengthen in key areas and might have a chance at the EL trophy and/or the FA Cup/Carabao.

  6. Declan says:

    Apparently Bayern Munich are now in talks to to sign Carrasco having been knocked back by City for Sane.

    1. Admin Martin says:

      Thanks for the heads up, gave me an idea for an article which I have now published.

    2. GunneRay says:

      Never mind Declan. I guess the fact that Carrasco went to China in the first place most likely proves he’s not loyal to club but cash anyway!?

      I would like to see some arrivals at the club that want to be there for the long term and not just a ticket back to European footbal.

  7. ThirdManJW says:

    I think we have a good chance, when you consider that Emery almost won the EL league in his debut season with an injury ravaged, absolute joke of a squad. Move on the deadwood, and sign “Emery’s” types of players, and we will look so much stronger next season.

    1. Where'sMyTop4TrophyGone? says:

      The only thing is, how can he do that with 40 million quid and possible sales of flops and money drainers? We only stand a chance if the club earns enough through player sales.

      1. ThirdManJW says:

        I love your name, that’s class!

        I personally believe £40 million being quoted is off the mark. I think it is more (although not a lot more), especially with the sponsorship deal, but it makes sense to give the impression we don’t have much to spend. I agree that we have to maximise player sales, which will be difficult, given their wages and form. I love Auba and Laca, but we don’t looked balanced with both starting, and almost no managers play with two strikers anymore. So I would sell either one of those, which would generate a huge amount.

        1. Valentino says:

          Sincerely I’m lost somehow, ho w can we quote 40 quid as Arsenal budget to strengthen our weak team while mid table teams like West Ham and Co boast of budgeting 100 quid to strengthen theirs… Can somebody help me please… I’m finding it difficult to understand

    2. Sip says:

      Almost? You must have watched a different game.

      1. ThirdManJW says:

        I meant “almost”, in the sense that we got to the final. I wasn’t talking about the pathetic performance.

  8. TOM says:

    chances of winning something is always a possibility when it comes to Arsenal, but getting over the line seems to be our hurdle.

    To address this we need to see what state we will be in come the start of the new season…

  9. ForeverGooner says:

    FA Cup and Europa. But SLIM chance
    I don’t think we will finish in the Top 4 either. I expect United to improve. They have the funds.
    We could finish 6th next season

    We need to focus on building a stronger team and selling the deadwood ie Ozil, Mustafi, Mkhitaryan, Xhaka, Elneny, Jenkinson to raise funds

    I expect realistically that we could make the top 4 within 2-4 years if we make the right signings

  10. GunneRay says:

    I think 50/1 is a great (realistic) bet based on the current situation. Put £50 down and hope for a Leicester type year!! You never know?

    Based on the whispers, rumours and activity so far though, I would expect to lose the £50 in all honesty!

    50/1 would be better odds for a “top 4” finish!!!

  11. Le Coq Monster says:

    What are the chances of silverware for Arsenal next season?………….probably the same as Jimmy Savile becoming the Patron Saint of the NSPCC !

    1. GunneRay says:


      “Cough and slutter”


      1. Le Coq Monster says:

        Steady on GunneRay, I`m trying to keep silent in the wardrobe ! 😆

    As long as the slimey board and owner are around we may aswell forget trophy hunting for the foreseeable future .
    Also I don’t understand how Emery as gotten away with some of the most boring football I’ve seen as an arsenal supporter. The blame lies with him IMO for this upcoming season.
    No top players will want to come here
    We all know how the season will unfold ,promises of great players only to end up signing absolute garbage .rinse and repeat for the next 10 seasons .

  13. Sip says:

    I believe we should drop out of the Europa league as quickly as possible. Play our under 23 teams and get rid of Thursday football.

    Use next season to play one game a week and work during the week on defending, transition, final ball, pressing etc.

    If we try to compete on all fronts we will get nowhere. If we are the only team of the top 6 that only focuses on the PL we will have an advantage in both developing our squad into the mold the manager wants and in freshness some end of the season.

    Playing Thursdays and Sundays/Mondays leaves very little time for working on specifics in training during the week.

      Whilst Satan Kroenke is our owner. 0% of 0%. Look at his MLS American Team, Colorado Rapids, bottom by a mile, on the way to being the worst team in MLS history. We are purely part of a Portfolio. A financial object.
