Revved up Rooney could spell BIG trouble for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players will already be well aware that the Manchester United and England captain is likely to be one of the biggest threats to us getting past the FA cup quarter-final at Old Trafford on Monday. But the striker could be even more fired up for this one than usual and that could be very bad news for the Gunners.

The 29’year old is already closing in on the all-time goal scoring records for both club and country. Both are currently held by the same man, Bobby Charlton, with Rooney just three behind his international tally of 49 and just 22 behind his Man United record of 249. You would assume that Rooney is going to achieve both of those goals.

And while he may not be destined to win anything with England, unless some sort of miracle occurs at the Euros next year, he has won just about everything going at club level, including the Champions League and the club world cup. The only blot on his record is the absence of an FA cup winner´s medal.

And as revealed in a Sky Sports report, Rooney is desperate to put that right. He knows that this season may be his best chance as the chances do not come around too often and anything can happen in cup competitions.

Rooney said, “We have an FA Cup quarter-final against Arsenal on Monday and that is massive for us. We haven’t been to a final for a few years, we want to try to win that game and we are looking forward to that.

“Of course, I think it is a massive trophy. It is a trophy that, growing up as a youngster, I used to love watching and I was fortunate enough to see Everton lift the FA Cup in 1995 when I was nine years old.

“It is something which I would love to do and hopefully it can be this year.”

So Arsenal should be ready for Rooney to be charged up like a Rodeo bull on crack, because if we aren´t, then we could be heading for trouble.

      Articles like this is why we lose big games. We seem to be losing the psychological battle already and yet we are the better team. United players and supporters are already making noise with fighting talk while we are shivering in our boots like a bunch of poosies. When will we realise that often these games are won psychologically before a ball is even kicked? Note to our writers on this blog. Our players also read the stuff we write sometimes. If you want to support them, do so by being positive and not panicking like we are a league two team.

        sometimes no matter how hard you try to be positive, you. just. cant be when it comes to. crapy man u.

    1. fred cowardly says:

      If we win, will you openly admitt that you were wrong about both United and moving on?

      1. rools says:

        don’t feed the “try hard to be seen as a troll because he realized nobody cares for his sh*te”.

  5. arsenalmaniac says:

    I pray mr wenger gives it all it takes , the game is a MUST win for me

  6. summerbreez says:

    My knee is raw and roared to play I love football. To win it the Arsenal need to produce a top-level performance never give up be cool and score We got the players to win it

  7. fred cowardly says:

    If we lose our season will be a failure.
    No trophy = failed season

    If we win, we will be favourites to Win and have a great chance to win back 2 back FA Cups.

    If we draw, not a bad result but we will need to do the business at home.

    Same shit every season ….we always suprise ourselves winnin a game against a big team every season and dats all….
    If somefin has actually changed…maybe we sud start by winnin 2moro

    1. Mick The Gooner says:

      Well I think that something has changed, not really in the qualities of our team, we’re still very good going forward but weak defensively, though I’d argue we’ve improved in both attacking and recently in defending too, but we haven’t improved enough for my liking, and I think most fans would think the same.

      What I think has changed is the attitude of the fans. If we were offered a choice of Marco Reus or a fit Javi Martinez, I think most fans now would go for Martinez, because we’re sick and tired of being exposed in the big games.

      In the past I think most fans would’ve gone for a player like Reus instead, because we were desperate for a big name signing since we’d gone without one for so long, but now we’ve already had two in Alexis and Özil, so I think we’re less distracted by names and price tags.

      Wenger can’t go on without buying a big, strong defensive midfielder for much longer, the fans won’t allow it, just as the fans demanded a centre back signing in January.

      1. bayjerkoff says:

        Can’t imagine how arsenal evolved from big and dorminant midfielders to the likes of denilson and arteta as our DM…where re d likes of viera and gilberto

  9. Hafiz Rahman says:

    its Wenger tactics and players selection that will cause us the game….

  10. supertuur says:

    OT: I just watched the Montpelier – Lyon game. Fekir (2 goals), Lacazette (2 goals) & Gonalons are top players. Would not mind seeing one of these joining Arsenal. Motm for me was Fekir.

    1. Hafiz Rahman says:

      Shitroud was top scorer in Ligue one few years ago….

      is he considered a top player too??

      1. supertuur says:

        Henry also was French so what are you saying….

    2. john0711 says:

      Supertuur All 3 would be well within our budget

  11. Greg says:

    What about man u having to worry about, a revved up alexis sanchez?

  12. Twig says:

    Rosicky and Welbeck must start.

  13. Mick The Gooner says:

    We need to batter United. They shouldn’t have beat us at the Emirates, they got a deflected goal and didn’t have a single shot on target until the 80th minute, we completely dominated that game, we just didn’t put the ball in the net until it was too late. No doubt, we have the better team, and this time we have Koscielny instead of Monreal at CB, Coquelin instead of Arteta, Cazorla instead of Wilshere and Welbeck instead of Giroud. On paper we have this game won, but it’s doing it on the pitch that counts. Be nice if the team actually did it on the pitch for a change…
