How I think Arsenal will do this season

It's funny isn't it? The 0-0 draw against Stoke and everyone was saying that Arsenal were in real trouble. Now that they've beaten Liverpool, they're still unbeaten and haven't conceded a goal.

So, how do I think Arsenal with get on this season. Well, a lot better than most people. They have added to their squad terrifically with the signings of Podolski, Giroud and Cazorla. and their defence is looking incredibly strong, compared to recent Arsenal teams.

I think Cazorla is one of the best players to put on an Arsenal shirt in recent years. As soon as he's on the ball you know he's going to make something happen. He looks like a real replacement and a much better player than Nasri - which they didn't have last season.

If they can keep Diaby fit, they have a real player on their hands. He's strong, he's quick and he's good on the ball. He looks like a mixture between Patrick Vieira and Yaya Toure and is a player that Arsenal have really needed in their midfield for a long time. But like I say, keeping him fit is key and that is a lot easier said than done.

Steve Bould as new assistant manager is arguably the best thing to happen to Arsenal this season. It looks like he's really sorted out Arsenal's defence and they're working as a unit and are finally looking strong from set pieces. I think the clean sheets speak for them self.

Finally, I think the appointment of Thomas Vermaelen will really be the making of him. He leads the line well and leads by example.

So, what do I think is going to happen to Arsenal this season? 3rd and the FA Cup or Capital One Cup.
