What a great result for the ladies, sticking ten goals passed their local rivals! The win takes them into their fifth consecutive final of the London FA Women’s Senior Cup. It was at Spurs as well, so no the win was even sweeter.
The goal scorers were: – Lander (3), Littlejohn (3), Bruton (2), Ludlow, Davison.
The Ladies were a bit rusty at the start having not played in over 3 weeks due to International games, but it didn’t take too long before they began to dictate and dominate the game.
Apparently, Tottenham started well and were good for the first twenty minutes (somethings never change then) but after that there was only ever going to be one winner! Arsenal’s class showed, and away they went, right for the jugular!
Arsenal led 3-0 at halftime and 10-0 at the final whistle. A hat trick from Lander & Littlejohn, a couple from Bruton, and goals from Ludlow and Davison finished off the game.
The Gunners will now play either Millwall Lionesses or Charlton Athletic in the final, which is scheduled to take place at Wingate & Finchley FC on Tuesday, March 23, kick-off 7.30 pm; I hope it’s on television to.
The ladies have a ‘Littlejohn, the men have a ‘little jack’
Well done ladies and good luck for the final.
Yesterday I made a school girl error, by thinking Stoke v The Chavs was a league game – thank you to all those who came on to Avenell Road just to point that is was in fact an FA Cup match. Shame you couldn’t stick around to chat about something worthwhile, it must be good to be perfect! To be honest though, we are not in the FA Cup and I don’t have a scooby doo who is, I don’t care either!
On to today, Arsene says we are lucky to have Denilson back!! Arsene, we are lucky when any player comes back from injury!!
We also have Arshavin back and Diaby is a maybe. Gallas, Sol and Vela are all ruled out through injury or fatigue and Song is out due to the yellow card he received against Stoke – not that it was a yellow card offence! I’m glad though, the next two league games we can probably survive without him so better now than later on in the run in.
It could be a mixed old bunch we see in red and white today, very old and the very young.
I read yesterday that this is our squad for today – please feel free to correct me if Arsene Wenger has told you different!
Arsenal from: Almunia, Clichy, Vermaelen, Silvestre, Sagna, Nasri, Denilson, Fabregas, Rosicky, Walcott, Bendtner, Fabianski, Arshavin, Eduardo, Traore, Diaby, Campbell (doubtful), Eboue, Bartley.
I’m surprised that Eastmond, Coquelin and Merida are missing from that list. I would have put Eastmond alongside Cesc for this game.
I think Arsene will go with:-
Eboue Silvestre Vermaelen Clichy
Cesc Denilson Diaby
Walcott Bendtner Arshavin/Nasri
Rosicky played mid week so will be kept for Tuesday, Sol won’t play either because of the same reason.
To be fair, which ever eleven players start from the squad they should be good enough to get all three points today. If we can’t beat a team that sits second from the bottom in the league and on our own green grass, then we don’t deserve to win the league do we?
That isn’t going to happen though, not today. Today we will not only win but we will boost our goals scored tally.
The post started with the ladies scoring ten against the Spuds; today it’s the men’s turn. I don’t think it will be ten, but I bet it’s not far off.
Confident? I know I am….
