Arsenal handed BIG boost for the BIG match

Arsenal are continuing to look in imperious form, after the brilliant performance and win away to Hull City made it 25 wins from our last 31 games in all competitions. But Arsene Wenger knows that the Gunners cannot afford to start thinking that the job is done as there are still some very important games for us to win.

You could say that the really big one is the final game of the season against Aston Villa at Wembley, as it gives Arsenal the chance of a trophy and also to become the most successful club ever in the history of the FA cup. That is not the big game I am talking about though, because I think the trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the Premier League will be the key to Arsenal finishing above Louis van Gaal´s team.

We want second place of course but as long as we finish higher than fourth we should be happy, not just because it shows an improvement on recent seasons but because it could make all the difference to the chances of Arsenal winning the BPL title next year. Avoiding those two tense and energy sapping play off games will hopefully help Arsenal to start the season well and give us the platform to launch a proper challenge.

So the news reported by the Daily Mail that Danny Welbeck, who missed the game on Monday with inflammation of his knee, will be fit and available to face his former club is a massive boost for Wenger. Welbeck may have been a fringe player recently but just like in the FA cup, I expect the boss to start him at Old Trafford, especially after the striker played so well there and scored the vital winning goal.

And you can be sure that Welbeck will be desperate to show his manager that he should be starting the final at Wembley as well, but will he be able to do that and if so, who would miss out?

      We are 5 points clear of united with a game in hand. We will definitely finish above them, even if we lose at oldfartrod. For me the biggest game we have left is the villa game at Wembley. But all our remaining games are important. I expect us to beat Sunderland, west brom and swansea . we will finish above manure, what we need to do is finish above shitty and win the cup. COYG

    I only read the title of this article, have the squad got a big Boost to share?

    A Boost, a Boost, a Cadbury’s Boost!

          Many thanks to rickrocket and rickrocket for your kind comments. It makes me happy to know you appreciate the high standards of my comedy.

            What kinda crooked stunt is this? Trying to gain cheap popularity. Sorry fellow gooners, I should have ignored this guy. I will from next time.

              Cheap popularity, don’t flatter yourself.

              The only person I aim to entertain is myself. And you’ve just made that easier…..

              Fish on!!!

                1. rickrocket

                  I am pretty weird yes, but still don’t expect some guy who supports the same team as me to have a random pop at me!

    How funny would it be if welbz scored again at Old Trafford! Instant legend if he does, hahaa

    We need to sign a psychologist, not gonna get excited about the new season because it’s the same thing every year. String a couple of results, when our Champions League spot and Wenger’s job under threat. Go in to the new season optimistic because of our recent results. Only for wenger to ignore our needs and sign someone we already have, then by december half the fans want him out because our pl dream is gone. And the same thing keeps happening over and over. I just hope all you fans don’t get your hopes to high because Wenger’s going to to destroy them yet again.

      Except now… Our holes have been magically repaired and we have Gabriel and Coquelin!!
      So stop being a negative nancy and smile 🙂

      1. Gorgo Italiano

        Hopefully we sign another classy CDM for next season too as there will be games where both should start.

        In my humble opinion.

  4. Gunner

    Still think he should start on the wing….Just hope OG scores this wknd – needs to get confidence before FA Cup.

    5 points above United with a game in hand + a goal difference advantage. I don’t think they’ll finish above us. Beating United is about finishing above Man City. Aguero is firing again, so I can’t see Man City dropping any more points until the end of the season. Our best bet is Southampton holding out for a draw. But we don’t need Man City to drop points, it’s in our hands. 4 games left, 3 wins and a draw will secure second place and strong momentum going into next season.

      Even if we finish 3rd we get direct qualification to group stages. It would be nice to finish second but its not a must, the FA cup is a must. For me 3rd place and the cup would not be bad. Although I prefer second and the cup

    I am more worried about the Villa game. We are the highly favored team again, but this is a squad in good form, motivated by their new coach, and with nothing else to lose.

    But in terms of the OT, I would start the same lineup we used the last time we visited there but with Ospina obviously and Ramsey in place of the injured Ox. Damn I miss the Ox.

    1. Budd

      They still have to put a lot of work in trying to remain in EPL as they are one point above the relegation zone.

      1. muffdiver

        really? chambers adds to the amazing squad?

        ox definitely but calum has shown promise nothing more so far

          1. seancali

            Calum has not gone downhill, he performed poor when used as a rb…but as a cb he is great and he has proven that many times.he should be used as our 4th cb…quality

    2. Sumant The Gooner

      Nothing to lose? How about the FA cup itself. They’ll play like the world to be lost and so should we.

    Stop reading the media bs. Is it a coincidence that we’re on this run while Coquelin os in the side. We’re always gonna score goals just need to keep them out. We need to work on our defending over the summer probably need to sign tony Pulis to work on our shape and intelligence in defensive situations

    1. vince

      Get a clue m8. Signing pulis hahahahahaha

      But ur right. Woth coq we ve had a good D-fense. 3rd best in the league dont need puluis haha thatll ruin iur game

  8. Redeye

    And those idiots who can’t think for themselves and want a new keeper.We could have neuer and it wouldn’t make much of a difference if he faced 20 shots per game, a goal keeper is only as good as his defense. People think that cech is gonna save every shot he faces, delusional. Ospina hasn’t put a foot wrong, he brings confidence to the defense because his reliable, that’s a top keeper imo every arsenal fan can testify that we not worried when the ball is near Ospina. Isn’t that what we wanted less heart in mouth moments.

    Funny & amazing thing guys if u noticed is that the first goal we scored involved 3 ex- spuds players.. They were the main culprits.. Firstly huddlestone lost the ball then livermore fouled and then dawson deflected the ball into goal from sanchez free kick… Haha thats amazing and loved seeing these ex spuds players scoring the goal for us in this way haha.. Coyg!!

      Always trolling the spuds!….when are u gonna ever troll cheLski or manure et al… And prove to em we are better… In this modern day, we may be able to convince ourselves that we are tougher than the spuds… Why do we then stoop so low as to make the spuds our measuring standard?

    I would prefer Giroud starting the FA Cup final. Welbeck can play wing but Giroud will play great against Villa.

    As for United match, both Giroud and Welbeck have scored against United this season. Giroud scored in our PL loss and Welbeck scored in FA Cup, but again I would play Giroud upfront and Welbeck on wing.

  12. Dennis

    Beating UTD is about finishing second so we can do this. This off season offers so much potential, 4 players and we’re champions next year.
