    Records are there to be broken. I doubt any record has stood untouched for say 10 years or more.

    The best Arsenal side could not beat the best Chelsea side because of discipline, defence and organisation. In fact, the score line would be 1-0 to the Blues, you know it. :cool:
    No the Arsenal of two seasons ago would have beat the Chelsea of now, as I believe the Chelsea of now would not have been able to withstand the enslaught of the Arsenal attack back then, after all the Arsenal of 2 seasons ago consisted of about 7/8 consistent goalscorers. Ultimately YOUR Defence and limited choice of true goalscorers would have let you down.

    May be true, but we have to remember that "games are won through attacking, titles are won by defense". If you can defend as a unit and from the front, odds are that even the best attacking sides will have problems. Believe me, I'd love for Arsenal to beat Chelsea. Your football's definitely aesthetically pleasing, and doesn't make me have a strong desire to claw my eyes out - I'd much rather fork out to go to Highbury than the Bridge (not least because of the price difference). It's just a wee bit circumspect to suggest that Arsenal of yesteryear would undoubtedly beat Chelsea of today.

    I know Chelsea are at the top of their game now, but to me they just DO NOT look unbeatable, (not to say I don't think they will run away with the title because they are ultra disciplined, and of course the money they have spent on players... and no I'm not a person that think Chelsea's spending power is the root of all evil... out loud... but seriously it may happen 2 us 1 day). But when we were at the top of our game it was literally like you score 2 we score 20. And we did score each we committed. However now due to our lack of finishing, and a aggressive passionate captain to implement this mentality we have fallen behind. However I don't believe the Chelsea of today would have been able to put up with this!

    The Arsenal of two seasons ago was beaten by Chelsea though...in the champions league. And we were nowhere near being the team we are now.

    Arsenal's 'fantastic' attacking football works great against rubbish defences but you seem to run out of ideas and become frustrated against better defences. This explains your poor record recently against chelsea, man utd, and, of course, in europe. :p:

    Ah but with so many goals coming from midfield and the all important John Terry header here and there from set plays could make all the difference. The only problem with Chelsea with goalscoring is their strikers, their midfield is fine enough as it is. Also, remember who scored the second most goals last season, their attacking force is perhaps not as bad as people make out it is...

    And look which league is most dominant in the Champions League finals - Serie A. Is it that surprising really? :rolleyes: Remember, Arsenal only play one way...

    I was hoping for a good cup run, but it's hardly likely now (unless it's in the FA Cup).

    A top six place should do Tottenham this year. :cool:

    In terms of goals, assists over last 2 or 3 seasons...probably Lampard.

    Its almost impossible to decide between him, Terry and Makalele though.
    Cech is obviously class but he doesn't usually have much to do.
    Essien is looking like a good player.



    ...and drogba for acting all cocky whilst being the worst player on the team
    LOL
