I come before you fellow Gooners to inform you all that Arsenal will NOT win The Premier League this season.
That's right, Arsenal wont win the Premiership this yea, it's a season too soon. I said at the start of the season that we would not win it this year, but that we would next season. And, after little over half a season, I stand by what I said.
When Arsenal have been on form this season, they've been out of this world. No one could touch us. No one.
But We are still a very young team, and our inexperience will be our only downfall this season.
I can't look at any one player and say 'he hasn't been good enough this season.' Everyone has been excellent to date, and will continue to be so.
The only thing lacking is consistency, but that will come with experience. Players like Fabregas, Adebayor, Walcott, Clichy, Flamini, Djourou and Bendtner are all incredibly talented, but all need that little bit more experience to display the consistencey needed to win the Premiership.
Our football has been better than anyone in the Premiership this season. The only thing seperating us and united is that word I keep using - experience. Even Rooney at 22 has been playing first team football for 6 years. Then they have players like Scholes, Giggs and Ferdinand who know what winning titles is all about.
So I predict that United will win the title by 5 points this sesason.
I hope I'm wrong, of course I do. But I that is my honest opinion.
But fear not, for next season will really be one to remember. I fully believe that we will destroy everyone next year. We'll smash records, tear teams apart like they're wet paper and we'll then dominate football for a good few years.
Fabregas and Flamini will have had a full season to develop their partnership, as will Toure and Gallas. Eduardo will be settled and fingers crossed, Van Persie will be able to stay fit.
But back to this saeson briefly. I do think that we will win something. IF we beat Milan, we can win the Champions League. The Italians may be sitting mid-table in Serie A, but they've got a fantastic pedegriee, and are one of the toughest teams in Europe to beat.
Without wanting to sound like a Spurs fan, We'll do it next year...
