Arsene Wenger says he and his young team are aiming to bring The Emirates Stadium it’s first trophy next season, in the form of the Premiership.

Arsenal haven’t won the Premiership since the Invincibles season in the 2003/4 season.

When asked if he thought his team could compete for the Premiership title Wenger replied: ‘That is the aim of the season. We are Arsenal.’

‘The environment looks very strong but when you go with a young team you feel you can improve every year.

The question now is can Arsenal compete with their current squad? When you look at the strength in depth that United, Chelsea and now Liverpool have, I’m tempted to say no.

However, a couple of class signings and I think definantly.

Either way, Wenger knows!

  • We are Arsenal fans and we arent expecting to get relegated so what do you expect us to think?

  • ‘We are Arsenal’……I love it! That’s all he needs to say! …think we’re going to surprise a few people this season…

  • I think it’s a bridge too far this season. However if United’s and Liverpool’s new players take time to bed in (and ours dont) it might be closer than some people expect. Can’t wait for the new season.

  • lets see fergie thinks we will “certainly be in the top 4..wenger thinks we can win the title. seeing as they have been the premierships 2 top managers over the last decade or more i think they have some credibility. most haters on this sight wouldnt even remember what the trophy looks like…50yrs is a long time. so on whos authority do people say we are doomed?…im a bit drunk…just a bit

  • this season will be bananas…i wonder how wenger will play everyone if we buy rodrigo? word has it he can play on the left wing otherwise upfront is van persie,dudu,ade, bendtner rodrigo and theo…very nice

  • 2007-08 ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS – ARSENAL ! ….. can wai for he season 2 start !

  • No surprises there, what else do we expect Wenger to say when asked such a question?!! I fancy a longer challenge for the title compared to last season, but the title might just be too far out this season. All I want to see is an honest attempt from the team.

  • I think we are in a very good position because we have a very talented squad. We are in the best position we have been in for the last 4 years.

  • I agree with Bergkampsboot and Rocky. I have a feeling it will be closer than what a lot of people have been saying. United’s sigings are mostly back up for this season, and Giggs, Scholes and Ronaldo all having a blinder of a season might just not happen again.

  • For what it is worth I think this is our season. We are now bedded in at our new home we have the players and the ability. Go you gunners

  • I’m not sure we’re gonna win the league, but who knows about the CL and the domestic cups? I do think we’ll finish close to the top, certainly closer than last season. It is quite strange how much more positive I feel about things recently when it comes to next season. I think with one more player bought (hopefully a winger, I’m thinking Robinho) we’ll be pretty much there.

  • “We have youth and the fact that no one rates us means that maybe we can surprise people.”…Bakary Sagna, after signing for Arsenal

  • ssup gooners.. anyways.. that coming from the boss.. makes me really happy.. mr simmy.. i would disagree with you on one point.. liverpool DO NOT have great strength in depth.. having two players for every position doesnt make good backup.. u need to have good players as backup.. the first eleven is all fine and good.. but after that.. pool are just crap.. they dont have defensive backup at all.. as for our chances.. i dont see why we cannot challenge the top two.. we have really good strength in depth.. the team is gelling.. if we can convert what we create.. i dont see why we wont be up there.. and reyes is going.. hope we get a swap deal for robinho.. jigsaw completed.. somehow i think with everybody having spent loads in the market.. wenger’s got an ace up his sleeve.. hez probably gonna unleash a new signing very soon i think!!

  • yep.. agreed with him.. there’s no pressure on us to perform.. nice thing u brought that up bergyboot.. anyways.. i think this is going to be a good season for us.. with a close to the top finish.. realistically speaking.. i dont see us winning the title.. but i think we can give the top guy a pretty decent scare.. and go far in all the cup competitions.. and with vela and merida coming through.. nortveidt and fabianski.. the CC could have Arsenal FC written on it this year..

  • The blues have a problem at left back so they to have a big problem to fill both Bridge and Cashy are out.
