Newcastle – Arsenal PICKS

Gunners 2011/2012 edition will debut away to Newcastle St. James’Park. Newcastle is a band of mid-table without any great objective, but with no worries regarding demotion. The Gunners are favorites in this match in the first round and certainly Wenger wants success here at Newcastle but it will be very difficult to obtain. Newcastle brought them in summer from United Obertan, Marveaux from Rennes, Demba Ba from West Ham, Cabaye from Lille and Abeid from Lens. On the other side, Arsenal and transferred Chamberlain from Southampton for no less than 13.8 million, Gervinho from Lille for € 12 million and Jenkinson from Charlton for 1.2 million euros. Amount paid for Chamberlain seems exorbitant considering that is midfielder and comes from a band of the Championship. Arsenal is undoubtedly the most valuable band in this game but magpies have a good game at home. Arsenal will play Tuesday at home in the first leg with Udinese after the league playoffs to follow other matches gunners fire at home to Liverpool from Udinese and return match away to Manchester United. Basically it is the easiest game in the top 5 this season and Gunners must take maximum advantage but it will be hard to achieve victory. In this game you bet on a simple scored by gunners and gunners attack I fear, representing only a problem for the Gunners defense. Cotofenele last season drew at home to Arsenal 4-4 score after Arsenal led 4-0 after 26 minutes in this match Arsenal will try to take their revenge and leave with all three points.
