Two stars to watch out for this season

With the new season about to begin for us there is still uncertainity about the squad we are going to get down with. Knowing Wenger I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t know it till 31st August or even a day after. There has been alot of stuff said about how Arsenal are the most likely to lose out on their top 4 spot but I’d just let them do the talking.

I think we have enough quality in the team to maintain a top 4 finish and even go a step further and win it.Although I still feel we are a player or two short from complete domination. Having said that there is still time before the window shuts and I’m sure we’ll see a new face come in. We’ve lacked some physicality in the team which becomes obvious during games against the likes of Bolton,Chelsea and Stoke but the quality is surely there to admire. So In my opinion and with the current squad the 2 players who will stand out from the rest are Andrei Arshavin and Eduardo.

Andrei Arshavin

He’s an impact player and without doubt one of the best players in the world today. We all know how he revived our season after signing in January and showed exactly why he was in the headlines after Euro 2008. While he’s no Kaka or Ronaldo he is cetainly in a class of his own. We missed him during the CL matches since he was cup tied having represented Zenit St Petersburg earlier in the competition and surely missed him in the FA cup semi against Chelsea. Why Wenger didn’t start with him in that game is still not known but I think we’ll see alot of him this season. I think he can be the one who can propel us to the title this season.If he continues the way he played in the 2nd half of last season I would put my money on him for PFA player of the year this season.


It’s a bit too much to expect him to be the star player but the kind of form he has shown in pre season and the friendly yesterday it would be safe to assume that he will play a big role if we are to win the league. If any one had doubts regarding his ability to get back to the level on which he was before the leg break he has swiftly silenced those. He is a top class finisher and also works really hard for the team. Ofcourse he’s no beast in the air but surely makes up for it with his eye for a good pass and work rate. If he stays fit I’m sure he will be among the top scorers this season .

Those are my 2 stars of this season ofcourse I would love to be surprised by some one else but as for now I will stick with them.It’s going to be an exciting season and with the games coming thick and fast I hope our team stays fit and  silence all the critics.
