Tomorrow we welcome Burnley to The Emirates, the Mancs face Wolves away and the Chavs are at home to Stoke City in the FA Cup.. We know Stoke can give any team a hard time in more ways than one and as much as it pains me to say this, but I will be cheering them on against Chelsea on Sunday –
OOps, I have just been advised this is a cup match for the chavs, all the better I say, we can put more pressure on them with a win!!
I can’t stand John ‘Thomas’ Terry and his bunch, I have little time for Stoke – but out of the two I would rather the Chavs win nothing, so a Stoke win would be good!
As for Wolves, old Mickey boy will play his strongest side against the Mancs, he can’t afford another hefty fine like he had when he fielded a very under strength side the last time they met. When that game was played I could understand why he did it. He didn’t think they would win and Wolves had a relegation battle a few days after that game but like ave said here, if it gets close at the end, will you feel the same?
It is close and no I don’t ave, I wish Wolves had played a full strength side and nicked a point!! This time around though, Wolves are at home and live on television; I hope they play up for the camera and stuff Sir Red Nose’s side.
Drop points Mancs and Chavs and trust me it will be at your peril, you both have a crap run in and we have a much favourable one – apart from Tottingham away, all are games are winnable.
That’s why Old Red Nose and Ancelotti are worried, that’s why they are again talking to the media, saying that no-one should write Arsenal off!!
It’s all a game, mind games and trivia yet again by the managers who truly believe we are in the best shout for the title since the ‘Birmingham Affair’. They are scared, rightly so too and we need to make sure we stay focused and not choke at this stage. We are so so close, let’s just concentrate on us, let’s just win all our games, sit back and watch the others drop points and then we can sneak in when it counts.
The next few days are massive for us, massive! Win two games in four days and we are still grinning from ear to ear, lose either and the challenge for ‘that’ trophy is over. It’s do or die time for the team as far as this season goes.
I honestly can’t see us dropping one point on Saturday let alone three – in fact I would stick my neck out so far to say this is going to be a high scoring game. I don’t however, see Burnley contributing to that high score one bit, other than being on the end of it!!
Not only does the team/squad need to believe it, so do the fans. Against Burnley, those who are lucky enough to be there need to sing loud, support every player vocally. Get behind the team we all love and help them to achieve what we all want them to!
This time Tuesday night, we could be two points off the top of the league and in the quarter-finals of the Champions League – How great would that be?
Come on Cesc, you can and will be the next Arsenal captain to lift this trophy.
Have a good day all….
