Why I Am Backing Arsenal to Be Premier League Winners 2013/14

Some people say I am far too optimistic for my own good. For me that glass isn't half-full, it's full to the brim.

Most, in my view, are probably just being polite and nodding away, whilst inside thinking I am a raving lunatic when I say this, but I think Arsenal will be champions next season.

They are great value to win the league at Betfair and I have to admit I have put £30 at 10/1 for them to do so.

Now please, don't rush me to the funny farm because I am being serious. I haven't gone crazier than the time Frank Lampard entered a pie-eating contest. 

I believe it can happen, just as R Kelly believes he can fly, and I have put my money where my mouth is and backed Arsenal to win the title. Our first since 1543.

We can spend the big money for the first time since, well ever, and are on the brink of signing world-class talents like Higuain and Gareth Barry (cough).

Not only, according to Ivan, can we splash the cash like Elton John in a flower shop but I think the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United will find it difficult this campaign.

David Moyes is a solid manager. In fact he could be a member of the notorious So Solid Crew but I reckon it'll take him time to find his feet at United.

Manuel Pelligrini is another who take time to settle. He is the first Chilean in English football since Adrian Chiles and I think the Premier League might be a culture shock. Well Manchester will be.

For the first time since I was a wee nipper Arsenal seem to be keeping the core of this squad together. It isn't being ripped apart, and with us seemingly looking likely to add decent players, this could be the best chance we've had in a long time to be champions.

Keep It Goonerish......
