'It hurts me to say this but I think Arsenal could be the dark horse here.'He (Wenger) lost (Theo) Walcott to serious injury, he lost (Aaron) Ramsey and he still managed to end up in the position he did.'

Despite the Gunners' promising form in the league last season, Arsene Wenger's men were forced to settle for fourth place and victory in the FA Cup final against Hull.

But Sugar believes the £30million acquisition of Sanchez from Barcelona could push them to the next level.

He added: 'With a fit squad and the addition of the new chap that he’s brought in (Sanchez) I think they are the dark horse.'

Lord Sugar

anyone here watch apprentice UK...Lord Surgar is a massive spurs fan and former Boss..yet he shows more logic and sound reasoning than Jamie Carragher
+2
I actually think the former spurs give pretty unbiased analysis. Gary lineker and even Jamie redknapp I think are pretty fair with their opinions
I can respect a man like that.
+1
I don't care what people say honestly, they can write us off. We do our job, win our game. That's it !! At the end of season we prove them wrong. Why so serious about their opinion ?? They have their right to say whatever they want.
+1
It's one thing to write a team off, but to do it every year, every season, every f*****g week... it gets tiresome. Some pundits wouldn't even give us the time of day when we were top of the table for weeks at a time last season. Couldn't acknowledge the fact that we were playing well and other teams weren't. They always have to find a reason to sleight us, sometimes grasping at straws just to discount us.

So it's nice to see someone like Lord Sugar making a statement like that for a change.

And actually, I think the only person who has given us any credit over these past 10 years is Gary Neville (who is probable the most sane pundit out there.)
Common guys its clear that the favorites are Chelsea and Man city with their big Squad strength and depth!
Dare i say if we sign a Striker and a CM in this transfer window then we can mount a serious challenge to the title! Think Liverpool and Arsenal are so called the *darkhorses* at the moment tbh and may be Man Utd too(if they have a decent transfer window)

I could care less about what other say and predict about us, we should just focus on our own games! Now onto Everton! Also the big CL game coming up! :=)
+1
Even though they say this and that they're always right aren't they? We never last the full mile and that's one of the many reasons they don't see us as serious contenders.
Jamie Carragher has given clear reasoning as to why Arsenal (and even Liverpool) can't win: not enough strength and power. He feels that is what it takes to win the EPL.

How is that illogical and unsound? You seem pretty biased.
+4
How can you even understand what Carragher is saying?
+1
Problem is our squad isn't fit. If we win the title this season, it'll be much thanks to our rest of the starting XI and fringe players for keeping us in contention until all our best players are back.
Random question from a Yank: Always wanted to know this... how does one become a "lord" in the UK? Because, I'd like to be one.
Lord Sugar is a closet Arsenal fan no doubt :P

sorry if posted..ramsey loses ear flicking keepy up challenge
Line up based on team news

szczesny
debauchery, Chambers, Boss, Monreal
Flamini
Sanchez, Wilshere, Ramsey, Cazorla/chamberlain(please star the ox)
Giroud

subs: Mertesacker, Ozil, Podolski, Campbell, Rosicky

Wenger on the Germans: I will check of course today and tomorrow to see if they will be available for selection. That is a target I fixed to them to prepare to be ready for selection against Everton. Will I use the three? Certainly not because they lack competition but they might be included for Saturday....
IMO Chamberlain will get the nod at LW and switch with Alexis if necessary. The other rotation (or rather non-rotation) will be Ramsey in the 2nd leg due to suspension, so probably Ozil will start in that position on.
^yeah..and possibly Mertesacker, Wenger's recent comments on Chambers and trying to avoid making him feel like his already made it..suggests he could be on the bench soon..but not for long imo
Well...I am a fan of Milan and I enjoyed watching Balo play because you never knew what he would pull off. But there was a huge negative....Mario is like a shitty gun. It will fire but sometimes it gets jammed up and will backfire..just like his character. Really believe Wenger was smart for avoiding this signing even though he is talented.
Brendan Rodgers and Steve Peters will turn him into a star :)
I don't think Wenger really avoided the transfer and changed his mind. I don't think Wenger ever had Balo in mind to be honest.
+1
He was offered to Arsenal in the beginning of the summer window. The signing on fees including the agent fees for his agent (Riola) is monstrous as he is a top agent.

But that was back then and Arsene backed out. Yesterday he was offered to Chelsea and City as well but both backed out as Pool would have probably started a bidding way anyway ( we have more to lose/gain in this deal hence the higher stakes for us )
+1


Liverpool are close to a £16m deal with. oh boy! i wanted Arsenal to get him.
NO, please not. I'm so worried we will get him whenever we are linked with him. I know the price is interesting, but u know why Milan is desperate to offload him. I just love to see his controversial news and i personally think he is funny. But still no, please don't come to emirates.
For that price his worth the risk...I didn't want us to get him at 30m..that's too risky..but 16m and if things go south there will always be a club interested in him at 10-15m...it wouldn't have been that bad...I think what Arsenal is missing right now in attack is someone with a mean streak..a really big character, just ruthless..he could have brought that
When Giroud get's you down just remember what he can do

Diontan, thats true for the whole team, not just Giroud, appart from Theo, maybe.
But he just can't step up when we need him the most (against big team).
+2
Definitely not the "whole team" as you mentioned, i try not to single him out, but in certain match he is just terrible. Maybe for other position we had quality backup for the team, but for upfront we only have Giroud, no other choices.

Also, theo went missing in certain game as well.
+2
Diontan in those big games the only player i remember stepping up was Sagna...Everyone else freezes while we go through a period of madness...Koscielny and Mertesacker are left so exposed..

But the future is bright..between Walcott, ramsey and Sanchez we will have enough imo..El capitan will have a crucial role too
Diontan i don't agree with people saying we don't need a striker..We need a fox in the box..but we need to fill other position's more..so we have to wait..in the mean time Giroud is enough..It's like getting an upgrade on your Engine when you have a flat tire
He scored against city in comm shield?
Since most of u agree we don't need a new ST, so i better not hoping for more. Well, we will see. I still stand by my point that Giroud alone is never enough with that position, hopefully sanogo and those wingers who capable of playing there prove me wrong where they can fire us to title when Giroud is in bad form or injured. I genuinely hope I'm wrong.
@ Gunnzo, Arshavin scored 4 goals against liverpool, while bendtner scored against chelsea, liverpool, barca and so on. Even vermalaen who was a great player for us scored many goals for us. Where are day now ? Benched and get sold off. Whenever you are out of form, you are going to be on bench and someone will replace you to help the squad, no matter how good you were in the past.

Im not saying Giroud is exactly going to be like them, i would rather said most of the time he did quite well for us just lack of performance against big club. (ok, now u can go on and blame whole team). I like giroud on and off field honestly, but im honest with my opinion, i praise player when he is good and criticize when he is in bad form. Im just saying signing a new ST can provide competition for giroud so that he can grow in his potential. When other player do well, then giroud gonna be benched, that's it. It's all good for the club.

Just like how i love Santi, but if he is in bad form he deserved to get benched, although he scored in community shield against MAN CITY too.
I am 99% sure wenger is gonna rotate Sanchez as a CF this season, so that'll give giroud some down time to get his head in the game again
Balotelli is more of a liability. Thankgod we din't get him.We got a better team player in Giroud who scores the same amount of goals and has more assists.
+1
on Fabregas' Chelsea debut…

I watched the game, yes. It was [strange seeing him in a Chelsea shirt]. You have to accept that professional players move from club to club and it was difficult for me to see him leave us. After he has left us for one club, you accept the idea that he can move to some different clubs. Of course it was a bit strange but he had a good game. I have no regret about [Arsenal not re-signing Fabregas] at all. My regret is that he left us.



He then goes on to say how Ramsey can replace Cesc, but is younger with lots of potential still, albeit still being different type of players
this Mackay saga is really terrible, have a read here, don't think he will ever land a job on Football again!
