Chelsea have won 3 of the last 10 Premier League titles (30%).
Man City have won 1 title from the 4 they've played in since they began to spend big (25%).

Certainly Man United are the undisputed best in the last 10 years, having won 50% of time, but I wouldn't call it "barely a dent".

Like Mo said United now lack the SAF factor. City and Chelsea definitely have better squads, maybe even some others like Tottenham, so it remains to be seen whether Moyes can turn an inferior squad into a winning team. Like him or not, remember that against Chelsea he is not only facing a superior side, but he'll be going head-to-head with one of the best coaches in football today.

Im yet to see it, Chelsea looked abysmal vs Man U but i guess you can blame Mou's tactics for that so im not yet convinced....

So getting Oezil meant they had to forgo Ba; their much needed striker upgrade. They also needed a DM and defender much more than a CAM, about the only position they excelled at... Ba, however, isn't exactly your dream transfer and Oezil quiets the crowds and raises the 'come join us' factor by about three country miles not to mention he only lags Messi in assists during the last four years. But still they really, really needed a striker more. Anyone cares to debate that one even further?

I get what you're saying. IMO, Wenger's thoughts might be :
1. Vermaelen is coming back on 14 Sept. Kos and Mert should do fine. If need arises for 4th, Sagna is always there.
2. RBs - Jenkinson and Sagna. LBs - Gibbs and Monreal.
3. DM was needed : Flamini signed. Arteta's coming back soon. Will make do with Rosicky/JW/Ramsey/Flamini till then.
4. Front Three : Ozil plays as 10. Cazorla moves to LW where he has played in his time at Malaga. Walcott at RW. Ox will be back by Nov.
5. Striker : Giroud is in good form. Podolski scored a few when he played as striker a few times by the end of the season. So, he'll be an alternative in 6 weeks. Walcott always whines about playing there, so, could even give him a go there a few times.

All in all, he's being one hell of a optimistic guy. If Giroud, plays on fine till the time Podolski is back which is hardly 6-7 weeks(minus 2 weeks for the international break), then I'd say their squad is fine.

Plus AW rates Bendtner very very very highly. :P

The admiration towards Bendtner is from both sources. After all AW did block his transfer because he couldn't land Ba.

Mourinho pulled Ba's loan when he heard of Ozil's transfer, can't be blamed on Wenger. Yep, Arsenal still has some holes but the GK issue and DM are temporarily resolved. The ST still needs depth but last season, they won games even if Giroud doesn't score some. Btw, that Ramsey is in very good form so Arsenal for the short term, doesn't look too bad.

United has won so many titles partly because for the longest time, PL is, ahem, a single team league. The difference between the Top 4 teams and the teams below was huge. And the difference between the Top 4 teams themselves is enough for United to win the league. Chelsea constant changing of managers that the team never settled to keep their focus, City having only been competitive recently and Arsenal's lack of ambition.

But with the big money that has come to all the clubs, we have seen that they had spent to improve their teams. There are still more dominant teams but it's not going to be so easy beating the weaker teams now. Just look at Aston Villa, they were against Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool and they put up a really good fight.

City will struggle until the managers become a lot bolder when aguero, silva and toure play bad they are exempt from any criticism whatsoever they stay on the pitch and dont improve whereas a scapegoat eg dzeko nasri is just wasted talent

Also whoever claimed man u dont choke is wrong the last two seasons they didnt win the title they bottled it from a commanding position. The famous melt down losing to wigan drawing with everton and losing at city playing for a draw. The other meltdown they were winning the title by two points with two or three games to go and lost the title by being beat by the champions chelsea at old trafford.

The day Harry Redknapp brought a fan on to play for West Ham

According to one of football's most endearing fairytales, Harry Redknapp once pulled an abusive fan from the crowd and put him on the field for West Ham. This allegedly happened in 1994, but no video and scant evidence of the incident exist. Jeff Maysh chased this mystery for over a decade before finally catching up with the fan in question [source]


Brilliant tale. Football is one amazing thing. :mrgreen:
