The former Arsenal goal scoring star Thierry Henry was clearly delighted to see the Gunners win the latest north London derby and get through to the next round of the Capital One cup. And after getting through a pretty tough away draw in our first game, Arsenal and Henry were glad to see us drawn against a Championship side in Sheffield Wednesday. Hopefully we will play on Tuesday so they have no advantage.
It could still be a tricky tie for Arsenal as the Owls did just knock Premier League Newcastle out, but after getting through the north London derby when we were on for three defeats in a row, everyone who follows Arsenal will be feeling a huge sense of relief and some renewed optimism for the weeks ahead.
As long as Arsenal keep going from this game and get back on track, the next round of the league cup will not be too important anyway and Arsene Wenger will probably then play some kids and if we get through, we get through, but it will not be a crucial game.
It should definitely be another start for our star of the show tonight as well, and with Mathieu Flamini in the mood and with a point to prove, who is to say that a weakened Arsenal could not make it all the way to Wembley? So is Henry right to be happy with Arsenal getting Sheffield Wednesday away in the next round?
