Arsenal are preparing for the big FA Cup semifinal against Manchester City on Sunday at Wembley, and as this competition is the clubs only hope of a trophy this season the players should be ready to fight from the start to win a place in the Final. If there are still Gooners out there that haven’t been able to get a ticket for the match, I have done some research and have found a site called Football Ticket Pad that they seem to have tickets for most Arsenal games available. You can buy tickets for Sunday’s game from under 80 GBP!
Thanks to our last two FA Cup successes and a couple of Community Shields, the Gunners have actually won their last six games at Wembley. Aaron Ramsey, who scored Arsenal’s winning goal against Hull in the Final a few years ago, thinks that we can keep up our winning run in the famous Stadium. “We’ve had success at Wembley before, so hopefully we can have more. Personally I love playing at Wembley.” Ramsey said
“It’s the same build-up throughout the week but as soon as you get on the team bus to the hotel, it feels different.
“When you head towards Wembley and you look through your window to see the stadium, the build-up changes at that point.
“It’s spine-tingling, exciting and you can’t wait to get out there and perform. I love the competition.
“I scored against City in the Community Shield a couple of years ago and in the FA Cup final of course, and we have had a bit of success there.
“Hopefully we can continue that. We haven’t had this line-up in the semi finals of the FA Cup for a long time so it’s going to be very tough from here.
“If you want to win it, you have got to beat everyone in front of you. The FA Cup is fantastic with plenty of great stories to be told from down the years.
“These semi-final ties look like they will be added to the history. They are mouth-watering for the neutral. We want to remember them for the right reasons.”
Arsenal also have a pretty good record against Moneybags Man City, with just one defeat in our last 7 meetings, so you could say that history is on our side. Hopefully our win at Middlesbrough last week will have given us some of our confidence back for this, and our great FA Cup record could help pull us through. We could certainly do with a boost after our awful run of form….
Onwards and Upwards!
