Arsenal: What To Expect In December

Well, well, well….the Carling Cup this year has thrown up many surprises, but who expected the league-leaders to get a drubbing at East London ? Certainly not me.

Speaking of London, Arsenal as all of you already know are in the semi-finals of the Carling Cup. Yesterday’s 2-0 defeat of Wigan at the Emirates has given the club a real opportunity to obtain silverware this season. With United beaten, West ham, Villa/Birmingham and WBA (if they qualify) shall be the only remaining Premier League teams in the competition. Of which the Gunners has beaten all of them already this season with the exception of WBA.

So here is the opportunity to win the Carling Cup. But lets not get cocky. A cup is won on patience and constant performance, not on paper. Just ask United…

This week we take on Fulham at the Emirates, and next week its United away. For me, these 2 games are crucial. December arrives, and luckily the majority of our games are at home this month. First is Fulham , followed by United away. Then comes 2 consecutive games at home. Stoke and Chelsea. The latter being “well you know what. ” After the match against Chelsea we face a tricky trip to Wigan. Yeah, the last time we went there, we conceded 3 in 10 mins !

I expect the team to beat Fulham, I hope they beat United. I expect a win against Stoke, and again hope we beat Chelsea. And lastly, we should win at the JJB, which if I may add is going to be our last match for 2010. To be the way I am, I expect at least 10 points from these 5 PL fixtures..

    Losing 4-1 to Wigan and 2-1 to Bolton? That’s too much respect for those two teams, I think.

    I am praying seizeless for arsenal to win at least a trophy this season,but their home form is questionable.arsenal play better away and struggle at home,look at the series of defensive blunder conceding sheap goals.arsene wenger should work on the defence and also the timing of fabianski for a cross ball.

    Lets not kid ourselves here, December is going to be a tough month. it could be a defining month as we play both united and Chelsea. being home or away is meaningless right now as we’re crap and the Emirates and quality away, so it will even itself out.

    Realistically, if we go into the new year and still be a maximum of 2 points behind the leaders we’ll be doing well. But i have a feeling we could be leading the way come 2011.

    beat fulham convincingly lose to man utd (convincingly) beat stoke 1-0 draw with chelsea, beat wigan lose to bolton 2-1…10 points.
    We should still be at least third come the new year….

    Season defining month ahead.
    If we can take points from 4 of the matches, we will be quite on track.
    I think Arsenal can beat United this time around, and Chelsea too, with RvP back and rearing to go, and Nasri doing well.
    If we are 2nd after the year, we are doing well. However, this all sounds nice on paper. Slip-ups can happen.
