Wenger: We Can Catch United

Arsene Wenger believes that Arsenal can still catch Manchester United and win the Premiership crown this season.

Many people - including some Arsenal fans think that United are already too far ahead in the title race for us to have any chance of clawing our way back to the top.

Arsene though, does not share that opinion: "There is no team in England who you can say is not reachable.

"Last year at this time, Chelsea were already out of reach for anybody.

"This year there is a place to take because no body has taken all the points. I do not know if it is because Chelsea are inferior, or all the other teams are better.

"But it is much easier this year than last season and the year before, also than when we were champions in 2004 and did not lose a game.

"At the same time we have two teams to catch now, that is our problem."

Although I do share Arsene`s optimism I think that an absolute minimum of 10 points from the next 12 are essential.

How about we start with three tonight against Fulham?

Yeah that will be good, but we have to beat today and must not lag and treat this as a fading title decider if we even want to be a glimmer in the race.

Last year I don't think he admitted to being out of the race this early, why should we believe him this year? Arsene's becoming a bit too transparent for his own good these days.

2-0 to the tottenham, at the immigrants stadium, hasta la vista scumbags.

Lasayer I heard those rumours too! Whinger is more stupid and I thought. The man has lost the plot, must be old age. 1st he wants a fight with Pardew then he refuses to shake hands now he thinks Arse can win the title. YEH RIGHT!!! Time to get you bus pass old man and hang up your gloves.

At least Alex Song look's like the new Vieria! Is Whinger really gonna play Flamini at left-back sat? Think AZZA'S gonna have to get his special yellow boot's out again.
