2 points clear at the top of the league. Pretty much cruising through their supposed "group of death" atm.

Is this the season where they finally win something?

What would pass as a successful season for Arsenal with a fully healthy squad?

Depends on the draw but if they make the semi's of the CL, thats a fantastic achievement.

Top 2-3 in the league is also good, realistic. But what they should aim for is fighting for it, even if they fall short.

Maybe they dont win anything, but they can still have a great season.

I can't see them winning the CL. Teams like Bayern, Barca, Real Madrid are superior. However with Dortmund getting to the final last season, any good team could get to it.

In terms of the league, if Man Utd/Man City keep being inconsistent, then they've got a chance.

I dont expect them to win either the league or CL but i can sure expect them to get closer to atleast one of those titles depending on what they really prioritize.They still have some elements missing to be a regular contender for both league and CL.

Dortmund is the best team in the world ffs.

If they get a striker and a quality DM in the winter, they can challenge UCL or at least semis IMO. They are very good atm.

If they keep their current form they'll trash any PL team

CL is a pipe dream

League is there for the taking

FA cup should be priority

CC should be the trophy we aim for if everything else goes to pot

Basically what everyone said. After a start like this to the season. I am hoping for us to fight for the title and coming 2nd or 3rd will still be a great achievement compared to last few seasons' dog fight for the 4th.

But we have to win the FA cup this season. CL looks unlikely with the likes of Bayern and Barca but quarters/semis will be good too.

All of this can still contribute to a good season and we can try and get another Ozil like signing next summer and really go for the trophies.

Arsenal remind me of Mourinho's 2005-06 Chelsea. They are no longer a young team full of inexperienced noobs who made mistakes easily. This Arsenal's average age is 5 years older than it was a couple of seasons ago.

Arsenal have also sacrificed playing "pretty" possession based football for efficiency. They are a well balanced team, more balanced than any team in CL bar Bayern. They have many players who can score, they are unpredictable and now they have one of the best players in the world.

They'll be up there.

All we are missing is another CB and another striker once we get out of this ridiculous injury crisis on the wings, and the CB is just to make up the numbers so realistically we are one striker from having everything we need to compete for any trophy IMBO (in my bias opinion). With Giroud playing the way he is, I don't see us being any worse off for missing out on the striker we needed last summer either, yet.

Let's get the quadruple :coffee:

I know I said that Arsenal will struggle to be top 4 this season, but with Ozil's signing and Ramsey's and Giroud's great form I can see them compete for the title, especially given the inconsistency showed so far by the two Manchester teams and Chelsea.

Imo challenging for the title (2nd place), FA Cup final and QF/SF in CL would be a great season for them. However, I don't think they really have the depth to challenge in all these competitions. Hope they prove me wrong.

My only problem with Flamini is his head. He still hasnt learnt your not allowed to tackle on the ground, even if you win the ball.

Today he made a tackle, which for me was fantastic. Was called for a foul, dunno if he got a yellow for it but I wouldnt be surprised.

But yeah, he is a card just waiting to happen. He tackles for me great, but in today's soft game, its an auto yellow. And someone like him, is exactly what you need in bigger games, but not if he going to get sent off.

It was such a beautiful tackle. But was given a foul.

He is very old fashioned in terms of tackling. Very Gattuso-esque. You are right that it will get him into trouble at some point. Already has 3 yellows in 4 Appearances in the league lol. His aggression and tackling is what makes us appreciate his arrival, But it's double edged sword.

He's a throw back to like the 90's lol

I like him, he is my kind of role playing defensive mid, but its frowned upon these days.

I know its a yellow when the ref calls foul immediately after I say "great tackle".

Did he get a yellow for that tackle btw?

No yellow, but he did get a stern talking to for daring to execute a perfect slide tackle. Saying that, our ref tonight was obviously quite generous, given that Axel Witsel was sent off for a so-called "dangerous" challenge earlier.

Flamini pretty much is a suspension waiting to happen, but at least we have Arteta back now.

if we had a WC striker than i could see us competing with any team and winning the CL/PL. but because we havent got that i see us challenging but falling short at the end.

Yeah I saw it, Cesc and Busquets also both got yellows for jack squat. Cesc especially, his tackle was fantastic.

Ignore those fans, Giroud has been immense all season, his runs, passing and interplay has been amazing since last season, the only difference is that this season his end result has gotten better. Majority of his goals have been ones where he has made amazing runs into box and scored poachers goals (first touch goals)

already has 6 goals and 2 assist, and he had 17 goals and 10 assist in this first season which is pretty good
