The game today is another one which we cannot lose. Actually we have said this phrase so often that it has lost much of its meaning. Yes, we need to win the match today but I am not sure if it is that critical anymore. If anything, the Premier League this year is as unpredictable as ever. I am sure that even if we do not get full points against Blackburn we will still be in the title race because I do foresee Man United losing to West Ham.
It is not to say that I don’t want the full points, we have not won for some time now so we need a win to boost the team’s morale. With the return of the four key players (Fabregas, Walcott, Song & Diaby) I know we can do it. Plus we are at home so by right we should be ok for all three points.
Beating Blackburn used to be so much more joyful when the Big Walrus was there. They are still a tough side to beat although I think they are struggling at the moment. Steven Kean has until the end of the season to make sure he remains in the job so his boys will really be up for it. All in all, it should be an entertaining match. I am sure the Gunners will do us proud and win all their remaining matches starting with this one!
