  • ARSENAL FC    
     Arsenal are back in form

It is only an opinion, but one that is held by an ever growing number of Arsenal fans, that the reason why Arsene Wenger seems to be impervious to the sort of sackings that we see in football all the time is because he runs the club on a sound financial footing. They scored in all five of their Champions League away games, and they have rattled in eight goals in their last three road matches.

Yet Wenger's own position is will be reviewed this summer amid what has been the worst Premier League season of his 22-year tenure and the recent sight of swathes of empty seats at the Emirates Stadium. But because the mentality in the team is very good, strong and healthy we're recovered.

"There is some extra pressure to do extremely well in this competition, but that is part of being where we are".

Arsenal have won their past four games since the disappointment of two 3-0 defeats by English champions-elect Manchester City in the League Cup final and the league were followed by a shock 2-1 league loss to Brighton.

When I heard I could swap Man United for Arsenal, I said, "Yes, I want to do that", I didn't think twice. "I have not decided he will start but he is available and ready to start".

Given that they follow the same model one would think Donald Trump would have more respect for Amazon but he's clearly not a fan. As for the Postal Service, it has lost money for years, but online shopping has led to growth in its package-delivery business.


Wenger has repeatedly been the subject of calls for him to leave from the stands, but he is unconcerned by the prospect of the atmosphere affecting his team's performance in the first leg against CSKA before heading to Russian Federation.

Wenger will want the Emirates Stadium to be packed on Thursday, especially as CSKA's travelling contingent can be expected to make plenty of noise.

At a press conference, Wenger said his focus for Thursday night's clash would be to ensure Arsenal don't concede a home goal to CSKA Moscow.

He added: "We are going to have a tough challenge".

"I hope it will not affect both ties, the supporters, the Russians who come here and the English who travel there".
