With their second straight FA Cup silverware firming planted in the trophy case, does Arsenal have what it takes to vie for the Premier League title? Looking at their roster of talent it is hard to bet against them
It is not that they made big splashes in the transfer market, though they have upgraded at goalkeeper with the acquisition of Petr Cech from Chelsea.
It wasn't long ago that fans were calling for a change of leadership at the Emirates
Arsene Wenger days look numbered with little hope in sight
Then a funny thing happened; WengerÂ’s plan of building a great team instead of buying one started to show promise
Players that were spending more time on the training room tables instead of on the training ground began to heal and recover their form
They were arguably the best team in the Premier League after the New Year.
This team has seemed to grow up together; they have a belief in each other and a belief in their manager
Players that Wenger brought in from the outside seem to fit in well with the others
It is like they were there all along.
Many stories are going around that Arsenal need another world class striker for this transformation of theirs to be complete
After what they accomplished in the pre-season, IÂ’m not so sure
In four matches they scored 14 goals from 9 different players while only giving up one
Yes, it was only pre-season, but this team looks to be carrying over the confidence it had at the end of the last
WengerÂ’s philosophy of building a team and using the transfer market wisely without Â“panicÂ” buying seems to be working
This looks to spell trouble for the top flight teams in the BPL.
There is an American saying that goes, Â“DonÂ’t Get HappyÂ”
It means that you shouldn't rest on your accomplishments feeling proud and boastful, but always look forward to improving and staying hungry
If the pre-season is any indication, then Arsenal look downright angry, so now would be a good time for the rest of the league to start paying attention
