CARABAOAOAOAOAO CUP TIME!
Remember those sweet early to mid-2000s League Cup games when they mattered (kind of)? Remember when they’d play more exciting football than the first team? Carlos Vela. Nikki B. Denilson. Nordveit. Wilshere. Djourou. Lupoli. Owusu-Abeyi. Tavlaridis. John Spicer. Jerome Thomas. Justin Hotye. Manone. Fonte.
So many utter classics in there. More potential than a New Years eve party. More disappointment then a whiskey-infused first date.
Well, maybe the excitement of that competition is about to come back. Maybe we’re about to be reborn into a world where the kids coming through are coached better and play more exciting football. Maybe we’re about to see the next layer of progress in the development of BIG PER’S YOUTH DREAM!
I’m looking forward to tonight. Blackpool shouldn’t be a nightmare for us.
They sit a miserable 12th in the league, above Charlton, but below Sunderland (how the mighty have fallen). I’m confident that if complacency doesn’t get in the way, it should be a fairly straightforward day out. Arsenal has young hungry kids that are getting so good these days, teams like Monaco are sniffing around for deals for our players.
Willock, Smith Rowe, Maitland Niles, Nketiah should all be getting game time. Whilst players like WELBZ, Guendouzi and dare I say it… Ramsey, should be there for the guidance.
This really is the prelude to the MEGA game that we have going on at the weekend. The hope is that no one gets too jaded, that everyone comes back fit, and we make sure it’s a powerful win for that psychological edge.
Right, that’s me done, short post today, see you in the comments! x
