Arsenal must push on from avoiding FA cup upset

We Arsenal fans can breathe a little easier now that the Gunners have safely avoided an FA cup shock away to no-league Sutton United, which would surely have sparked all sorts of protests and fury from the fanbase, and lots more pressure on Arsene Wenger and his players.

This FA cup win, although it was a professional and committed performance from us, will not make us forget that the team has failed once again to challenge for the Premier League title or get any further in the Champions League. But there is still a lot of football to be played and a couple of big goals for the Gunners to go for.

Now the boss and players have almost two weeks before the next game and they need to use it wisely because our next match is away to Liverpool in the Premier League and that could be huge in the fight for a top four finish, which is still very important.

We can reasonably expect to get through the next round of the FA cup at home to Lincoln City and that puts us pretty close to a trophy which would make this season a much happier one at the end. Arsenal often finish strongly and it is vital that we now push on from this cup win.

How do you see the next few months going for the Gunners?

Bob.

    EVEN AFTER THE WIN MOST FANS AREN’T EXCITED MOSTLY BECAUSE WE ARE AFRAID THAT IF WE MEET ANY OF THE BIG TEAMS WE MIGHT STUMBLE. I CURRENTLY STAY IN JAPAN AND I HAVE TO STAY AWAKE LONG HOURS WAITING TO WATCH OUR MATCHES WHICH IS ABOUT 8-9HRS DIFFERENCE BUT AFTER WATCHING THE MATCHES SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE CRYING.. I LOVE ARSENAL NOT WENGER, THE BOARD OR STAN, IF SACKING WENGER WILL MAKE ARSENAL FC GREAT AGAIN AM IN SUPPORT OF THE SACK AFTER ALL WENGER WOULD STILL GET ANOTHER TEAM TO COACH BESIDES HE HAS EARNED ENOUGH MONEY AS A COACH OF ARSENAL SO ITS NOT AS IF HE WAS LOYAL WITHOUT A PRICE LIKE WE FANS WHO ARE LOYAL WITHOUT A PRICE(TROPHY).. HOW LONG SHALL WE CONTINUE TO GET OUR HEARTS BROKEN BY DECEMBER, JANUARY AND FEBRUARY? IT HAPPENED LAST YR, THE YR BEFORE AND THE YR BEFORE THAT YR AND ITS STILL GOING TO HAPPEN AGAIN IF WE CONTINUE TO STICK WITH THE PROF. PLEASE LETS ALL WELCOME THE CHANGE THATS ABOUT TO HAPPEN IT MIGHT BE BETTER FOR US AT THE LONG RUN.. IT WAS A CHALLENGE BETWEEN ME AN ARSENAL FAN AND MY BRO A CHELSEA FAN BUT ITS NOT LIKE THAT ANYMORE, I CANT EVEN SPEAK OR TALK FOOTBALL COS I WILL BE LAUGHED AT, EVEN MY FEMALE FRIENDS ARE ALL MAKING JEST OF ME… SAD TIMES AS AN ARSENAL FAN ESPECIALLY FOR SOMEONE LIKE ME THATS A FOREIGNER HERE IN JAPAN ARSENAL WAS A MEANS TO KILL BOREDOM, A MEANS TO GIVE ME JOY BUT IT HURTS TO EVEN WATCH OUR MATCHES THESE DAYS COS YOU DONT KNOW WHICH ARSENAL WILL COME ON THE FIELD OF PLAY.. WENGER MUST GO, HE MUST GO

    Hi goooners,now that the players have close to two weeks break shouldnt the boss give the squad this week off for all to rest,rejuvenate and clear their heads and bodies for the massive run of games left till season end?? The last few days have been difficult for everyone and it looks like everyone needs a breather to get focused again,my thoughts though..gooner for life and the next,cheers.

    I am happy we won BUT
    Honestly a 2-0 win against Sutton hasn’t done anything to convince me that we are any better than our 5-1 loss to Bayern
    And Bayern haven’t been that impressive this season either (other than against us)

    Now I completely believe that Lucas was purchased as a ploy to shut us up. Wenger didn’t want another forward. He could have got a Top one if he really tried. Even though Lucas is scoring in FA Cup, Wenger hasn’t given him a chance all season. Now we are out of the PL, he may get one

      I so agree on Perez. I feel bad for the guy. He should play or should have played more often than he did. He is, after Sanchez, IMO the best combination of speed, scoring ability and ability to assist we have out wide. He is by no means world class but he is more dangerous than our other wide man IMO. What a waste of 17 million pounds.

      I have to say, I vowed to reserve judgment on Xhaka till next season, but I can’t help to be concerned. He is a good passer of the ball but that seems to be about it. He is not athletic, he is not a good defender or tackler, his positioning is so-so and he is not a big presence in the middle.

    Not sure you want to know where I see the next months going 🙂

    I think my biggest fear will materialize. Mourinho will come back to haunt us. He will grab a top 4 spot, likely at our expense and he will win the FA cup.

    I don’t see us beat Liverpool or any of the other top 6 teams although anything can happen.

    This is the year it all comes crashing down.

    I am an Arsenal fan and really want us to do well. Thats why i hope we do not make top four. This might be just what breaks the camel’s back and forces a change. Then again it still might no be enuf to change things.

    I have for the past 4 seasons now been abused, insulted called names, yet it has all come down to the same things I said 4yrs ago, Arsenal CANNOT win any major honors with Arsene Wenger as the manager. He’s out of tune with Modern football improvements. He’s stubborn and opinionated, yet GREEDY. He earns way more than his worth, and The FANS WHO HAVE BEEN DEFENDING HIM ARE LUNATICS. Now, 4yrs after, we’re still at same place!!!
