Forget Barca! Beating Sunderland On Saturday Is More Important

By on March 3, 2011

I don’t understand why all the reports on the injured Arsenal players have focused on whether they will be back to face Barcelona next week. There is a more important match at the weekend which is of a more immediate concern that next week’s European match. The result at Stamford Bridge meant the Gunners are well within reach of the League title and we need to take every opportunity that the Red Devils present to us.

There have been too many times in the past that we failed to take advantage of the situation when the league leaders stumble at the top. Our home defeats to WBA and Newcastle came at a time when Chelsea dropped some points but we failed to close in on them. Now we have the perfect opportunity to close the gap to only one point. With United having to go to Anfield with only one recognized center back, there will be more opportunities for dropped points. However, all this is immaterial unless we are able to take advantage of the situation.

Now that the FA Cup replay is out of the way, it’s time to concentrate on Sunderland this Saturday and forget about Barca!

    Very much agreed. arsenal have the problem of putting all there eggs into one basket, they need too to spread there talent evenly, i mean that might mean we might not win the biggest cups but some is a start dont you think?
