Arsenal's start to define their season?

It's the same old story as the season approaches where the Gunners are concerned. Yes, that's right, Arsenal have been accused of being embroiled in a crisis before the season has even started. However, the North London outfit is not a club to be discounted so rashly, since the Gunners still possess a very strong squad, even if Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas do decide to depart the club.

Regardless of this fact, the Gunners still know that a defining moment of their season will come in the first few games, during which the true strength in depth of the squad and overall quality of the players it possesses will be tested early on, with a pair of tough games against Liverpool and Newcastle, fixtures that they may not end up winning, but which need to bring solid performances in order to silence the doubts surrounding the club and particularly its leadership. Anyone looking to bet on Premier League should bear this in mind.

If the Gunners do start poorly, it's quite likely that the club will put a lot of pressure on Arsene Wenger to go out and spend big bucks on the sort of players he has previously suggested would be merely desirable, but may soon find are necessary to help the club continue to progress. The Premier League betting offers reflect this.

With Arsenal fans still reeling at the way the club collapsed after their inexplicable defeat to the now relegated Birmingham in the Carling Cup final, a game that seemed to be nothing but a curse on both clubs as they struggled to pick up points after the game, Wenger knows that he has hard work ahead of him if he wishes to keep fans firmly onside and supportive of a project that has flattered to do anything other than look pretty so far. If the Arsenal manager fails to lead the club to a decent start, he may find that his team is entering a season to forget.
