I know what you mean re the gunners. There best 11 is very good but the problem is they dont have the depth of the big guns. The tradionally crowded fixture list over Christmas and New Year is certainly going to test them and you feel they are just one or two injuries away from falling off the pace.
As for Allem...just shows he has no emotional investment in the club...its just all about money.
Allem's a business man, all he cares about is the money.
I know he saved the club from going under with his investment, and technically, yes he can do whatever he wants with his club, but when he continually repeats his "I pumped X amount into this club" what he fails to understand is the amount of money the fans have put into the club over the past 100 years, which is a hell of a lot more then he has.
The fans were there before he arrived and they'll still be there after he's gone.
The fans loved him when he first arrived, now he's pretty much undone all his good work with his "its my club, no-one can tell me what to do, I can do what I want with it" attitude, apparently tradition, the fans and history count for nothing.
I agree with you regarding Arsenal, I think their strength in depth will eventually go against them in the end, but I think a couple of quality signings like Ozil (not more cheap, unknown players) and I reckon they'll be challenging for the title next season.
Id say top 4, but it will be close.
1) Man City
