Don’t get cocky! Arsenal HAVE been losing these games!

Arsenal might lose the FA cup final you know by DN

Okay so Arsenal have already beaten our FA cup final opponents Aston Villa twice already this season and the aggregate score between the clubs is 8-0. And with the Gunners being the holders of the FA cup trophy as well, many Arsenal fans seem to think that all we have to do is to turn up and collect the silverware.

I hope they are right of course, but I just thought it might be worth injecting a little dash of realism, or pessimism if you wish.

Whereas Arsene Wenger and his players have proved this season that we are no longer like lambs to the slaughter in games against the big boys, beating Man City and Man United away and not suffering any heavy defeats, our record of being flat track bullies has not been up to the usual standard.

Do i Need to remind you what happened when we were drawn against unfancied Monaco in the Champions League knockout phase? Or that Swansea did the double over us and that the likes of Anderlecht, Sunderland, Leicester and Hull held us to a draw, while we needed extra time and a slice of luck to get past the Championship side Reading in the semi-final?

I am glad that Arsenal are a more balanced team now but it does mean that we are not steamrollering these smaller clubs anymore. We should still win Gooners, all I am saying is that we should not count our chickens.

  1. This is the final, don’t think we will come easy, but if we believe in our self like last year then the faith will choose us. The best and hardest worker. In other side, Villa fans better believe those happy feet penguins.

  2. We are loyal fans…we never turn up expecting Arsenal to draw or loose.
    Pessimism is not our goal. We are always optimistic.
    True that anything can happen in football… But we’ll always be optimistic.
    Arsenal 6 – 0 Villa

  3. I’m not superstitious, maybe a little, but I’m glad ozil hasn’t tweeted winning fa cup ya gooners ya( it’s usually 3pts ya…) because we usually end up losing. I can remember Swansea, spuds and Monaco. I have a feeling we’ll win and probably keep a clean sheet.

  4. Villa upset is possible….do not feel the hunger and determination of the boys compared to last season……

    word on the street a 1nil villa win

  5. I have to confess it will take at last another season for me to have faith in Arsenal.
    The FA Cup final will go a long way to predicting what we can expect next season. We have the
    players and we will add during the summer but, to me, there is something still missing.
    Arsenal have to win convincingly, not in extra time or shoot outs but by professional domination.
    I`m not convinced. Good luck Arsene I`

  6. Lets be up for this, and really put on a clinic against aston villa! Fa cup glory awaits us! But our destiny is in our hands! Coyg!

  7. Ye agree I really hope were up for it because sherwood will have villa rite pumped up COYG
