Many fans have expressed their concern at Arsenes' failed attempt to replace Arsenals troublesome current number one, Manuel Almunia. I am confident we can bring some silverware back to Ashburton Grove this year, if we can keep our major players fit and our defence (and goalkeeper) stay solid and consistent. I think this is the season where Arsene and his army must turn flair and beauty into success. Our squad now has the right balance between experience and young talent.

Get ready for it - because there will be periods of the coming year where we will feel on top of the world and periods where we plunge into darkness.

we shall fight on the beaches,

we shall fight on the landing grounds

we shall fight in the fields and in the streets

we shall fight in the hills

we shall never surrender

Till next time gooners.
