No Excuses! A must-win game against a weak Man United side by KM
Four years ago I made my only trip to London so far, with a promise that when I return it’ll be to see the mighty Arsenal play, and so it comes this Saturday I will be at the Emirates to see Arsenal play Manchester United in what used to be the Premier Leagues best match.
Now things have changed and Arsenal and United struggle to find their former selves, but as it stands Arsenal is in a better position than United. The pressure is on LVG to deliver after that whooping spending he did in the summer.
On the other hand Arsene sits in decline once again, reluctant to adapt to the modern game feeling no pressure from the board at all. Still though he must realize that this is an opportunity we cannot miss. United already have one of the worst defenses in the league (not that Arsenals is much better really), but they have also added a few more injures.
With Blind likely to miss the game and De Gea and Di Maria sweating on their fitness, Arsene has nowhere to hide. He must prepare the squad for the only chance United have in this game – which is us screwing it up for the 10th time this season.
If we don’t attack with 10 people when we are ahead in the score, if we put Chambers in the middle and give Bellerin a try, or just put Monreal on the right and actually have the Ox giving him some help we should be cruising. I mean this is the WORST united team i have seen in a long time.
Although Arsene cannot motivate a player to chase a ball on the pitch when he has to defend, beating United should be enough motivation for a certain Danny Welbeck. He’ll be eager to show LVG he was wrong to throw him out.
United arrive in a situation similar to when we went there and got beaten 8-2. If we were as ruthless as Ferguson was, we could actually spank them hard. Instead it will be a tough one. I hardly see us beating them hard, because they need the result as much as we do and they know all too well that Wenger is a dead manager. Even David Moyes managed 4 points from 2 games with Arsenal, when United were beaten by teams like West Brom.
Come on Arsene, Don’t ruin this for me. They are sitting on a plate, we just have to finish them.
