What are YOUR expectations for this season? + Polls

Arsenal’s much anticipated Premier League campaign begins this Sunday with a trip to Anfield to face rivals Liverpool. The fixture is the perfect chance for fans to wet their appetites ahead of a long season for Arsene Wenger’s new-look outfit.

The Frenchman promised experience would top his summer shopping list, and he didn’t dissapoint. Arsenal beat a host of top clubs to sign Marouane Chamakh from Bordeaux, while exciting Lorient centre half Laurent Koscielny also signed on.

However, the Gunners are yet to replace William Gallas at the heart of the defence, meaning either rookie Johan Djourou or new-boy Koscielny face a baptism of fire.

Added to that, the worrying goalkeeping situation is still unresolved with Wenger refusing to purchase an adequate no.1 for the coming season, instead staying with the inconsistent Manuel Almunia in goal.

    Our natural trend (5 last seasons) is 3rd…if we can improve that, we will be out of our natural performance (and finally we would give a step forward). If we will finish below 3rd, it means that we made a very bad job.
    Unfortunately, and compared with the powerhouses of ManU & Chel$ki, we are weak one more time….our inexperienced team needs another kind of signings, not only “future” talents (Chamakh/Koscielny), we need current football talents, players from German/Holland/Italian sides that have demonstrated all their talent recently….
    Why do we have to hear the same statements every season? we are financially solid, more than any EPL team, and our board refuse to sign experienced players…as last season we need 4 players at least, a goalkeeper, a CB, a DM ans a striker.

    2 players are not enough let alone one! we will fail miserably if we only sign a gk & 1 centre half.

    How can we stick with almunia and fabianski… So f***ing depressed. That video alone just shows we are f***ed with them in goal

    just look at what we achieved previous season and imagine we have had a keeper and good striker available whole season. Probably Barca would have beaten us but not as easy as they did but in the league we would get at least 10 points more, maybe more. Back-up for Song also needed, i mean a guy who does better job than Denilson following Rooney at the Emirates

    The only trophy that Arsenal is gonna win this season is the Emirates cup. I frankly believe that we will conduct no more transfers this season. He will say, the current team is enough and he believes in this squad. The one thing i am genuinely scared about is that we might drop out of the top4. and that i fear is going to happen. No defender, no gk, this is the team, period.
