Arsenal: Tough Times Are Just Around The Corner
Alright, let’s have a look at what are the things to come. We start of February with a Home game to Everton. Now Everton may be 13th, but we all know that it is not going to be a stroll in the park for us. The team has to be alert and clinical to get all 3 points from the Toffees so lets just hope they do.
3 days later its a visit to the Toon. Now Newcastle is not going to be the same team which we beat 4-1 in the Carling Cup. They have a new manager and did manage to get a point of Spuds, so we must be cautious.
After the Toon we do have 1 week off, or rather 6 days, and then its Wolves at Home. Wolves are not in very good form, but you just can’t say anything in football can you? I mean, could you ever think that West ham would beat United 4-0 in the Carling Cup?
After that we start the 2nd phase of the Uefa Champions League, hosting FC Barcelona at the Emirates. I guess I should leave it here, and not write too much about this game at this point…
After Barcelona it’s a provisional period for us in which we may or may not have to play games. This is because it depends on a result against Huddersfield Town in January. Now you may get confused here so let me make this clear:
If we beat Huddersfield Town, then we shall have to play 2 days after our encounter with Barca and that shall be the “5th Round of The FA Cup.“ If we draw with Huddersfield Town then we shall still have to play 2 days after Barca, but that shall be the replay of the 4th round of the FA Cup. If we lose to Huddersfield Town then the next match after Barca which is on the 16th of February shall be against Stoke at the Emirates on the 22nd of February.
After that we reach the 27th of February – The day on which the Carling Cup Final shall be held. Getting through this month will not at all be easy, and I actually feel stupid in telling you Gooners out there as I know you guys know the same. We are title contenders, and to be Champions we have got to get through this….
