I have to be honest, Arsenal fans, and admit that I really did not expect Arsenal to beat Man City and make it to the FA cup final. In fact I could go further and say that I am fairly in the dark about what to expect from my team on a game by game basis, except perhaps to expect the unexpected.
It has been a similar story for years but this season we seem to have perfected the art of confounding the general consensus and the bookies, by losing games that the football world see as a banker win for Arsenal and then winning games which no one gave Arsene Wenger and the lads a snowball’s chance in hell of coming out on top in.
So while this may not be good news for some of the games left to play in the Premier League, such as Sunderland, it could be useful for others like the north London derby away to Tottenham. It could be even better news for the Gooners when we turn up at Wembley to face the clear FA cup favourites Chelsea on May 27th.
Not many will expect Arsenal to come out on top that day, but does that only increase the chances of the FA cup trophy coming back home with Arsenal?
