Poll: Will Arsenal finally win a major trophy this season?

It is Groundhog Day for Arsenal.
A near perfect start to the Premier League season, a Champions League rout and frequent productions of what can only be described as fantasy football.

Manager and creative director Arsene Wenger is convinced that his free flowing architects of the beautiful game have what it takes to win a trophy.
Cesc Fabregas may not have been granted his dream move to Barcelona so has instead moved himself into ‘another dimension’ of footballing mastery.
And the next batch of child prodigies are banging at the door, suitably primed and qualified to evict their more established, but only marginally older, elders.
While this cheery tale of youthful idealism may be wearing thin among both Arsenal fans and foes alike, it remains stuck on a repeat setting.
No story is perfect and crucial to every hero’s existence is a nemesis and it too looks set to play a part once more.
Having materialised in various forms of destruction in recent times (self combusting French captains, calamitous goalkeepers and broken limbs to name but a few) its presence is currently being masked by the customary pre-Christmas veil of optimism.
Injured duo Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott have already made premature exits, a fledgling central defence is yet to undergo thorough examination and Manuel Almunia is on borrowed time.
So there we have it. All the necessary ingredients for a typical Arsenal season but how will it taste come feasting time in May?
Like a vintage post 2005 with hints of bitterness and an absence of substance or packed full of sweetness with a cherry on top just as it did in the good ol' days?
