Ok, Ok, before you all get your knickers in a twist hear me out.
We’ve been told ever since the draw that Celtic are a great team and qualification will be tough, well lets be honest, if we were playing Central Park Junior school from East Ham they’d be saying that wouldn’t they.
Have you seen Celtic over the years? They are about as good as Port Vale, the only way they’ll get a result against us is if we gift them one, we should go out there and play them with the swagger our kids have in the Carling cup, show them respect and they will have a sluggers chance, just like when York beat us on Lee Dixon’s debut.
If we could have picked a team to play in this round… it would have been Celtic, now we’ve got them, people are saying things like, they will be tough and they will be up for it, well my friends, so would Central Park Junior school, and I should know, I played for them, and we could have beaten Celtic.
Add to that Celtic are managed by Russ Abbot who’s never beaten Arsene and I can’t see how they can beat us.
I expect Ramsey and Wilshere to figure tonight and I hope we see Vela as well, I hope he doesn’t tinker with the defence as that looked pretty good to me on Saturday but the midfield may see the introduction of Eboue in place of Denilson at the start, although as I said I would hope he lets Wilshere loose.
The best way to play them is to keep possession from the off and to hit them with our superior firepower, they haven’t got one player in their team I would want, Samaras will try and prove a point as we had a look see before he went to Man shitty but other than that I expect no problems.
We will no doubt be shouting ourselves hoarse tonight and for those of you going, take care, they’ll sneak up behind you! Seriously I hope you enjoy the game and you all have a safe journey there and back, it’s a long way.
I love the way that these pundits talk about the passion in football north of the border, I watched the Celtic game at Aberdeen, it was a top 4 clash and there were holes all over the ground, we don’t get that in our FA Youth cup games, some passion.
Tonight the boys are playing to keep their boss in a job so to speak, because if we lose this one, we may not qualify, tonight Arsenal we avenge Bannockburn, tonight Arsene becomes Edward, Hammer of the Scots, tonight Arsenal will show why Celtic would never survive in the Premiership, tonight we prove a point that this young team can go all the way, tonight we come of age.
Go Arsenal go, our hopes and dreams ride with you!
Final point, European league? Not a chance Arsene, there would be no away support and only the teams that spent big would ever win, that would be boring, not to mention the poor players would be tired all the time, sorry boss, I think you’re barking up the wrong tree there.
Have a great day today Grovers, another chance to see what this team can do beckons!
