After4 all that has happened with Arsenal Football Club already this season, especially in the last few weeks in which back to back defeats to Watford and Chelsea ended any realistic hopes of the Premier League title and the humiliating hammering away to Bayern Munich left us needing a miracle to stay in the Champions League, a lot of Arsenal fans will not be happy with anything less than a heavy win over National Lea\gue club Sutton United in the FA cup tonight.
However, I can see it being a tough night for the Gunners for all sorts of reasons, including the pitch and the fact that the home side will be totally fired up while Arsenal are not in a good place right now. That is why I for one will be happy to see Arsenal draw tonight.
A replay, while not being the ideal result against a team so far below us in the echelons of English football, would keep us in the competition and at the Emirates in a week or two it would be a game that we would almost certainly win. The FA cup really is our only hope of a trophy this season and with the other non league club Lincoln City at home waiting for the winner of this tie and with Chelsea and Man United drawn together, Arsenal are very close to Wembley.
Arsene Wenger and the players just need to make sure we don’t mess it up tonight because there is a chance of a massive upset being on the cards. Would you be happy to see this go to a replay?
