Everyone connected with Arsenal Football Club, from the fans and the players to Arsene Wenger and the powers that be, could really do with a lift and something to cheer about after the chastening Champions League exit at the hands of Bayern Munich topped off a miserable period when the Gunners also faltered in the Premier League and saw another title challenge go down the drain.
Luckily enough the team has the perfect platform to provide that morale boost with the visit of a non league side to the Emirates stadium in the FA cup quarter-finals. They must forget about the what-ifs and the fear about what perople will say if a side ranked so far below Arsenal manage to win or even take it to a replay.
Instead we need to show our class and use the home advantage and the great pitch to put ton a show. It will not erase the memory of Tuesday or the last few months but a cracking good performance and a high scoring win will certainly lift the spirits as well as the reward of booking a place at Wembley for the semi-final.
So come on Arsenal, stick it to the Imps and give us Gooners some joy for a change!
