So the big match today is just less than two hours away. Well nothing can be said about this just that we don’t want to lose to the spuds in any circumstance. The last time we met, the result wasn’t in our favour.
It has been heard that only three players from the reserves have been included in the squad. Still whatever Arsene will put out, it will a stronger team than what we may have seen in recent years in the cups. It’s difficult to predict the squad as it stands. I would like to see Chamakh, Rosicky, Denilson and one of Koscielny or Squillaci to be included for experience. Vela also deserves a start. And the young players can be accommodated in between. I am going to wait for the team to be announced for this one and am not making any predictions.
Update: The team has been announced:
Starting XI: Fabianski, Eboue, Djourou, Koscielny, Gibbs, Rosicky, Nasri, Denilson, Wilshere, Lansbury, Vela
Subs: Almunia, Sagna, Clichy, Arshavin, Chamakh, Eastmond, JET
As for the game, it will be a great evening. It will be a tight match and we can expect a few goals and hopefully the outcome will be in our favour.
The spuds are looking for a reason to claim that they are better than us but as I have said before whatever the outcome they will never be even in a hundred years. So whatever their players or manger say, they are a pile of scum and let’s get out there and teach them a lesson.
p.s. Please Arsenal, just don’t lose tonight.
