Arsenal...the lost season

Once again the bete noire that is Bolton beats Arsenal. Having been knocked out of the Carling Cup (scarey how the Carling Cup has some importance for Arsenal this season) and now the FA cup, as well as being completely out of the running for the Premiership this would appear that the 06 - 07 season is a washing for Arsenal. Granted they remain alive in the Champion's League, but with the daunting task of having to defeat Real Madrid would appear that this could be the first season in many years without any silverware.

Let us hope that the youth movement by Arsene pays off sooner rather than later. I think that moving into the new stadium, infused with young talent means that Arsenal should be back in contention sooner than its rivals would like to see. However, they need to sign Henry, need veteran leadership, and need to figure out a way to compete with Chelesea's billions of wealth. Until Arsenal can demonstrate they can do so, they will remain second fiddle in London
