For many Gooners, finishing second after being at the top of the table for 248 days was disappointing. The only way Arteta and his boys can make up for this disappointment is by coming back stronger next season and managing another title charge, which ends up with them being crowned league champions.
Do you see that happening—Arteta lifting the PL on his second attempt? Why can’t he?Interestingly, Tony Adams feels it is unlikely Arsenal will win the PL next season and may even struggle to finish second, with other clubs also set to improve. The ex-Gunner wants to see his former club take advantage of the summer transfer window, though he doubts they may surpass Manchester City’s brilliance.
“I do fear that this could be as good as it gets for them,” he said in The Sun. “I hate to sound like a prophet of doom, but I do believe that a lot of this team has already peaked.
“It was possibly the best season that many of them will ever have. I don’t think they’ll get to that level again.
“They’re definitely not going to challenge Manchester City next season ,and without serious recruitment this summer it will be a struggle for them to finish runners-up again.
“City’s B team is better than any other Premier League side, and we know that Newcastle, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea will all be much stronger next time out.”
As Gooners, Adam’s words may not be what you expect to hear, but those are his sentiments. There’s so much to believe that Arsenal will be well equipped to win the PL next term, and that’s all we need to believe.
Before the 2022–23 season, no one believed Arsenal would finish second, and what did they do? They disapproved those who overlooked them. Next season, Arteta and his boys have a lot of questions to answer. I
I hope they’ll have all the answers.
