EVERY GAME IS LIKE A CUP FINAL. by Khan Gunners
Hello Arsenal fans. Everything at the moment is something to forget and the Wenger issue looks to be going ’til the end of season! After the supposedly crunch talks with Kroenke things seem to have gotten worse, and last night was another night of all those long nights that justify Wenger leaving. As an Arsenal fan do you think Wenger’s indecision is having an adverse affect on our season?
Looking at the fixtures and most fans would wish they had powers so that they could fast forward the season and end it already. Let’s get started:
The worst possible time to face them and looking at the way we are playing it’s going to be another long game. We can’t seem to penetrate any team at the moment and coming up against a defensively and a relegation battling team will not do us any favours. If we win, it will be by a small margin as we are low in confidence and morale has plummeted.
They seem to have picked up form and are on a roll. Another crunchy game for us and once again we will play to their arms as they will sit back and hit us with vardy. We might struggle to win this and I expect them to be hungry for it. The mood of the fans at that time can have an adverse effect as to how this games turns out, as it would be after a semifinal and hopefully the fans will have some hope about the season. It’s going to be very tough but it’s a must win for us.
St Totteringham’s day looks like is coming to an end this year. Spuds fans will take this game to hit us where it hurts most, and looking at our squad it might be another embarrassing day for us. Our recent form with them is draw draw and more draw, but if we assess the games most of the time we were lucky to scrape away with a point. Will this be the year the Spuds smash us? I hope not coz I will not be able to take it and at least the players need to turn up for this derby game!
Man United (home)
More rubbing of the salt in the wound fixture. Expect Mourinho to take a dig at Arsenal and Wenger as usual. We beat them last year but the Mou factor comes in, and Wenger is yet to beat him in the Premier League. I fear the home games now as more factors will come into play; wenger’s future?; fans mood. It’s really going to be tough and our record against Man United is something that makes me worried. Can we get the three points? I think it’s more of we should get the three points as we are at home and it’s a very big game. I think before we face Man Utd we would have a clear picture what position we are battling for.
We have not won there since 2010!!! Let that sink in. this game is all about the infield battles. Will our players be ready to battle it out against a Stoke City team that will fight for everything?
Final home game of the season. A very long season and most fans will get here feeling good (depending on all fixtures above) or they will feel battered and relieved that a long season has finally come to an end. Everton will play physical and hit long balls to Lukaku, the question comes are we up for the battles? Will we finally have an answer on how to defend against teams that try to bully us and go direct?
There is still a long season yet and I feel the games against Southampton and Sunderland (that still have to be rearranged) are going to add more pressure to us. These fixtures are like Cup Finals now – lose two and top four is done. Lose three and we might be 7th. When you have 75 % of the ball and you have done nothing at all with it. I see many draws here if we are lucky.
What do you take on these fixtures? Can we get a winning streak going? The fourth place trophy is looking a little unlikely for us now !!
