I wrote an article before the Premier League season had started talking about how I thought Arsenal had a really good chance at winning the Premier League title again this season.
Now after 10 games have been completed Arsene Wenger's Arsenal are five points clear at the top of the Premier League and look every part the title contenders.
Many Arsenal fans were calling for Wenger's head after a home loss to Aston Villa and not a single penny spent in the transfer market.
However, he bided his time and pulled out an ace from his sleeve on deadline day and signed arguably the signing of the season in Mesut Ozil.
Ozil had an instant impact on Arsenal before he had even touched a ball. Everyone around Arsenal was buzzing like a kid who has just opened their Christmas present and can't wait to get it out of the box. Also relieving some of the ever mounting pressure from the fans on Wenger.
Wenger also did some extremely shrewd business bringing in free agent Mathieu Flamini, an ex-Arsenal war horse, in midfield.
Not only would this alleviate the ever talked about defensive crisis Wenger had had since Alex Song left, but it would also bring in the experience and seniority the Arsenal dressing room has been so desperately crying out for over the last few seasons.
Since that dreadful first day of the season Arsene's men have strung together eight wins and a draw, scoring an average of 2.4 goals a game and conceding only 0.9 goals per game.
The pairing of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny at the back whom finally have seemed to gel has been paramount to the growing strength of Arsenal's defensive line.
However, the driving force of this years Arsenal team has come from an unlikely source, Aaron Ramsey, who has been nothing short of sensational so far.
He has scored six and assisted four in the Premier League this season and is playing with the poise, balance and confidence that was previously missing from his game.
With many of Wenger's team on such scintillating form, he can also take solace in the fact that every team around them have been suffering from a raft of inconsistency.
Last year's champions Manchester United look a shadow of the team they were under Sir Alex Ferguson, making only one notable signing of Marouane Fellaini in the summer.
They have struggled for form and have lost games in which, if they were genuine title contenders, they should have won.
Manchester City have been hot and cold to say the least, one week getting beaten by Cardiff then the next humiliating United in the Manchester derby.
However, in recent games they have looked imperious once again and their sheer quantity of outstanding players sends a real message to everyone in the league.
Chelsea have brought back Mourinho, who once again began waffling his poetic nonsense. He got Chelsea off to a stuttering start, however, the ruthlessly efficient Chelsea engined seemed to have started purring again recently until they once again slipped up away to Newcastle last weekend.
Liverpool so far have looked very competitive. They currently have the two best strikers in the league in Suarez and Sturridge, however, they came up against Arsenal on Saturday evening and were comfortably beaten 2-0, showing that maybe they are still a bit out of their depth against the big clubs.
Tottenham have struggled to score goals so far this season netting only nine times in 10 games. Although their defence has been air tight meaning they are still well in the race for the title.
Wenger should be advancing onto his match against Manchester United at the weekend full of confidence that his team are not only unbeaten away from home this season but also that Manchester United are not the strong side full of confidence that they once were.
Overall Arsenal are looking like they are the team to beat at the moment and if they can keep this type of form going then they could easily be crowned Champions at the end of the season.
