The battle of sugar daddies teams.
Sadly, it's always been that way.

If we keep Walcott and Song I still think we contend.
Looks like Song is as good as gone. Barcelona apparently offering close to 20 million pounds and Wenger is fed up with his poo. Walcotte might stay. Arsenal is switching to more attacking formation so they might not even need song... From what I read Arsenal will run
Oxe - Cazorla - Arteta - Walcotte
They will need a back-up striker, attacking midfielder, and defensive midfielder. But this year Arsenal can def be dangerous. Spurs are on a verge of signing M'Vila so I hope Arsenal snatches him.

Manchester United don't really count. They crazy in debt... I dunno how long they will stay afloat. Manchester United pretty much bought RVP with a credit card. I believe this season, it will be between Chelsea and Manchester City... the battles of sugar daddies.
Not really, Man Utd's debt is roughly the equivelant of Arsenals debt when you consider the size of the clubs. Man Utd will slowly clear the debt and when they do, they will clear £80 million in profit every year to buy players, that's almost 4 Van Persies a year, or 1 Ronaldo if you want to look at it like that. That's ignoring any growth as well.

I have no idea where you get 80 million pounds in net income...
Here's Man U financial statements. They can't even afford Van Persie with their true profits.
PS: The only debt Arsenal has is a brand new stadium and it's almost completely paid off.

You gave me figures that are almost a decade old, worth noting as well that they aren't really relevant as they are from before the Glazer's obtained a majority ownership of the club.
It's widely acknowledged that Man Utd net approximately £80 million per year before interest due to the various sponsorship deals with the likes of DHL.

The only thing I found about 80m is their revenue which is different from net profits. If anything Man U farther sinks into debt. Man U decreased their debt by reducing their cash but in reality their debt increased. They bought RVP and Kagawa with a credit card. And please show me an article where Arsenal is in trouble. Arsenal posted near 120m in profits in last 4 years. Their current debt is $130m. They built $500m stadium 5 years ago... so that's hell of a debt payoff in my opinion. How Man U is gonna payoff half a billion dollars in debt, I have no idea.
