Tonight we play Hull City, in the sixth round of the FA Cup. It is one of those games where we are getting close to the buisness end of the season, you can feel elation starting to boil up inside but just take your minds off lifting some silverware and get through this round, we will reach the semi’s and Wembley, I can picture it but take those images out of your head and think of other things. I want to enjoy this one too it will happen but not yet, just make it last that little bit longer, winning will be even sweeter.
This is what supporting a big club is all about, just before the season starts our football juices start to flow as we prepare for the first games of the season there is initial excitement, the expectancy level is high and we want it, but we don’t know what the year will bring. After a game or two there is a smug satisfaction. then as the season gets rolling we normally get into a nice rhythm, not this year though.
Just before Christmas it began to go slightly limp and Dr Wenger prescibed a Russian to help the club to have the stamina for the run in and it certainly looks to have worked, as his potency at the front has upped our performance levels.
If we get through this round and ultimately reach the final and do the same in the Champions League it will be a very satisfying end to the season indeed.
One of our posters saw Andrey Arshavin walking or limping around his local Tesco’s last night and he said he was very doubtful for tonight’s game. I bet he didn’t look like one of the usual eastern Europeans who frequent these supermarkets dressed in clothes that would look more at home on an extra from the Professionals, jumpers that could only be bought from that clothes shop at the end of Blackstock Road in the early eighties, who used to survive selling H&J sports socks.
No clubcards for these guys, you can queue behind them safe in the knowledge that just as there shopping is tucked away in there polythene bags (no bags for life) they won’t bring out the dreaded clubcard or the money off vouchers the ones that send you over the edge in anger as you are getting later and later for work.
We seem to have a semi injury crisis again, I hope Theo is given another start he will frighten the Fishermen with his pace along with Vela, It is a shame Dudu is still unavailable.
I think we should win this one at a canter, 4-1 fingers crossed, revenge will be sweet..
I’m going back to bed for an hour lol.. Enjoy your day Roadsters!!
