Why do you think Stoke will get relegated Snurb? I really find that unlikely.

Stoke should be fine. Got a strong squad with plenty of premier league experience now and they don't have Europe this season to hurt their League form.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

I just noticed: the last time Arsenal didn't have a recognized world class player in the side was 2007-2008 season and we came the closest to winning the League that season (5 points off), with Fabregas and Adebayor making a name for themselves.

I think you're forgetting about Szczesny & Bendtner who are both world class players (in their mind)

We're losing Bendtner. *cries*

If we played him centrally, he's a fine striker. But looking at Giroud (since they are similar), I think we would do well keeping Vela.

Wenger thinks Szczesny isn't good enough yet. I heard he bid 12 million for a GK in the French league. No idea who that is. We do need a strong GK. Woj was pretty meh during the second half of last season.

To be honest I'm not so confident of that happening again. While we mightn't have had any proven dead certain beyond doubt World Class players back then, we did have plenty of supremely talents young players (Cesc, VP, Sagna, and Adebayor who actually worked hard for the team back then), along with a solid group more experienced players, who while not World Class, we're still good and consistent (Gilberto (even though he didn't play much), Gallas, Toure, Rosicky, Hleb). That 07/08 team has probably been our best during our 7 year run without a trophy.

I'm not that confident either. With van Persie, we actually had a chance of contesting again, but now, top-4 seems a competition with Spurs and Liverpool.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

I highly doubt we'll get Lloris. There's no way we could keep both him and Szczensy happy. Lloris is the better of the two now, but I see more potential in Szczensy, and the only way he'll achieve that potential is if he keeps playing, so as great a deal as 12M for Lloris would be, I think we'd have to pass that one up right now. Hopefully Lyon come to their senses and start asking for more for Lloris too. Didn't they pay ~15M for him? Surely they don't want to make a loss on him. Will be annoying if he ends up at Spurs.

Lloris would be better than your first choice, would you guys really spend money on a keeper that is going to be ahead of the guy you've been developing who is now coming into his own?
