Lukas Podolski: Thinks Arsenal can win a trophy

Arsene Wenger's side are currently second in the Premier League table, one point behind Chelsea and have a sixth round FA Cup clash against Everton to look forward to.

Although they suffered a 2-0 defeat against Bayern Munich in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League clash last week, and are still in the tournament, it would appear that their best chance of winning silverware is at home.

And the German international thinks that could make for an exciting end to the season for Arsenal fans.

Podolski told the club's official website: "When you look at the table and compare it to the Bundesliga, you can see that here you've got five or six teams competing for the title.

"It's going to be tight until the end of the season. We've got 11 games left in the league and we have to try to find a way of winning as many of those as we can and get the points in any way possible. We want to be at the top come the end of the season.

"The team spirit is always good here, even after defeats. This is a great team - there's a good atmosphere between us and up until now, we've had a super season. We need to keep that with us now.

"I've been at a few clubs and in different dressing rooms but I've never been in a team with such a strong spirit.

"You feel comfortable here - be it on the pitch or off it. You always look forward to being with the team and I think that helps us in matches."

his specializing in mediocrity will only stop when Wenger and his entire back room staff are cleared out. Dortmund are everything Arsenal should be; in fact they're everything Arsenal thought they were, until they met this supreme doppelg nger.

The Bitter Taste Of Arsenal Déjà Vu

isgusting. Shambolic. Pathetic. Embarassing. Inept. Below par. Painful. Horrible. Sickening. Frustrating. Wasteful. 11 adjectives to describe the 11 professionals on the pitch. I have never been so frustrated. Losing I can handle, but negligence and years of the same mistake is just becoming a joke now. One that isn't even funny anymore.
