The FA have rewrote the Cup bible, the road to the semi final is clear, we now know our next three possible opponents in the FA cup and they are very winnable.
We are on our way to Wembley (or we should be).
Mr Wenger OBE has never lost a game to a side lower than the Premiership and as long as he doesn’t start this season we will be making our first appearance at the new Wembley Stadium. Okay the pitch isn’t as good as ours and the stadium probably isn’t that much better BUT the name Wembley still sends a slight shiver down the old spine.
We are so far away yet we are in touching distance of a semi final place, like the stoke games in “71” and “72” or the dreaded Spud game in “91”. It’s funny really if we look over our shoulder we have only seen the 3rd round and we are already talking Wembley.
The more I think about it though the FA cup needs Arsenal as much as the other way around, last year and in some previous years it has been devalued with respect to Pompey and Cardiff they hardly draw big TV audiences.
I would expect a strong side tonight.
Or if Ramsey has a late fitness test he will replace Wilshere.
I think we should win 3-0 tonight as well with a goal from the comeback man Eduardo.
The only other headline is about Nikki Big Boots and he thinks he should start every game for Arsenal, sometimes the words confidence or arrogance could describe him. If he gets a hat trick tonight I will call it confidence. I cannot believe he has never seen Arshavin play though, what do these footballers do in there spare time? A little bit of homework on the man and he could learn what the player is all about.
Anyway tonight we progress……
