Ryan Conway for FourFourTweet:
Arsenal have shown signs of very slow progression in the last two seasons but this campaign has revealed that they have progressed significantly against the other teams competing for the title and Champions League. Wenger and the board have built on the cup success of last season and to many they are (still) just a world class defender short of overthrowing Chelsea and Manchester City as domestic superpowers. If Wenger can guide his side to another Wembley triumph as well as a runner up spot in the league then it will be indisputable evidence that he is getting Arsenal back to the glory days of his early years at the club. The attacking line up looks set, Coquelin has provided bite and balance. The back line has more depth to it and with Ospina between the sticks they have a much more confident goalkeeping situation (whether Ospina is the number one next season, with links between Arsenal and Petr Cech being made, remains to be seen). However the squad is now looking deep at all positions and deep with quality, their bench looks dangerous on a consistent basis now meaning that Wenger has the tools to change a game when things are not going well on the pitch for his team.
Arsenal will be an interesting team to watch next season. They have a good squad and could have a fantastic one at the end of the summer. The big question is whether they can keep up the good performances when the pressure is on. Too often they have played their best football when they are out of title battle.
