Super quick blog today before I head into town to find a game.
I read with interest when Wenger revealed that the players were behind the push to play a more tactical game. This isn’t a slight on the manager, it’s a big thumbs up for the players who took a bit of control back. That shows a good team ethic. It shows you have a group of players who are more than just a pay check.
In other news, Gabriel has signed over at Arsenal. We have ourselves a shiny new aggressive centre back from Brazil. I’m excited. He’s going to be a revelation, I’m sure of it. Hopefully he’ll be eased in, rather than forced due to something going amiss today.
The game should be fun. Hopefully they won’t be able to push us too hard. I have my doubts they’ll be able to match out fitness, especially as we’ll be rested after a week off.
This is a massive chance for us to show what we’re made of today. There’s the added pressure that pretty much everyone is out of the FA Cup. So there’s a clear run at the trophy (between us and United) if we slip through today. I think the fact we’ve seen so many teams put to the sword is a good thing.
Fingers crossed we make it a retained FA Cup season.
Right, have a good day, enjoy the game!
P.S. Team for today looks good. Chezzer is now our cup keeper. How amusing.
