Life is quite good at the Emirates. You could forgive Arsene Wenger for sitting down with a smirk on his face while sipping on a glass of red.

It has become an overused cliche, but rarely has an 'I told you so' been more needed, albeit it a little premature.

Arsenal are unbeaten since the first day of the season, and currently sit on top of both the Premier League and their Champions League group having beaten a better Napoli side than their performance at the Emirates showed.

It is quite funny to think that after their opening day defeat to Aston Villa some fans wanted Wenger to move on, now, he is great again.

In an era where everything moves as fast as lightning, petrol dollars are pumped into clubs and overnight success has become the norm, Arsenal are to be admired.

You do not have too look far to see the difficulties in finding a new manager, a knock on the door at the Stadium of Light or at Stamford Bridge and you will find out all you need to know.

It seems it has become the obsession to see a new face in the dugout and a new name on the back of the shirt at every opportunity, but sometimes that turns out to be a mistake and not what it is cracked up to be.

I can imagine there are not many better feelings for Arsenal fans than to see the trust shown in Aaron Ramsey and Per Mertesacker pay off.

They have been given the opportunity to gain confidence and have been given time, just what Mesut Ozil arrived for.

The German is undeniably world-class, he has shown that in the brief time he has been in the Premier League, but the impact he has had on Arsenal as a club, I doubt even he expected.

Right now, and I mean right now, it seems the £42.5 million spent by the north London club was better businesses than anybody else has done for a good few years.

And it was done by a man who notoriously preferred to mine his own diamonds rather than purchase them.

Arsenal, patently, are yet to be tested - but that is not their fault.

Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, United and Liverpool in the Premier League in the next few weeks will show where abouts Arsenal truly are.

In a league where City and Chelsea pump money into fixing their squads and finding the right man to lead them, Arsenal should be commended for going down a different road - granted it has been a bumpy one.

I am fully aware that trophies are the true reflection of how successful you have been, and that is how it should be, but it has been refreshing to see it done a different way.

Whether Arsenal chose the right option in sticking with Wenger rather than opting for a new face will be answered soon enough.

However, just as people squaller at the money spent by the likes of Chelsea and City, maybe people should praise those who opt for patience.
