  1. lol. i see qed14 is thinking like arsene wenger. Squillaci is not an experienced player. He was never good and wld never be good. Walcott is just an average player and would remain that till the end of his career. Arsene should prioritize any trophy other than the EPL title. at least he would have a shot there. as for position we would finish, i say 4th. This is the first time in my life that i would admit that we cant finish first. As for surprises this season, i place my money on Chamakh

  2. This season will still remain like the other seasons for the wenger side.i can vow they will finish in d top 4,but not in the 1st/2nd position.Wenger’s philosophy is quite unbearable.They can only win some matches.But they will still disappoint when you least expected. they might endup trophiless again.Thank u

  3. LMAO!!!!!!!!!! Hahahaahahahahahah. Apologies for not submitting my entry but they did quite well without me.

  4. LoL…Obviously 1 Pundit has taken a light-hearted approach to the Q & A session…sooo, iif Gerv scores 20+ goals, QED expects chamahk to score just how many exactly to become Top scorer?? Anyways, Arsenal’s league position (come end of may) will depend greatly on how well the Top 6 have done. It’s not really in Arsene’s hands anymore.. i see them finishing anywhere btw 2nd & 6th…Yes! The surprise Player will be None other than the re-energised Rosicky (carlos vela shld be there/There abouts too). Defence is Djourou + Vermaelen for the Long Term and Gibbs @ LB when ever he is fit..Keep up the Good work Guys

  5. This Yemi is just a wacko…………….Chamakh for highest goal scorer…….you must be nuts……LMAO
