Revenge Over The Spuds Needed Badly
The loss at the Emirates earlier in the season was truly heartbreaking. To lead 2-0 going into the half and lose 3-2 in the end was the low point in our season. Since then we have gone to deeper depths of humiliations at St James’s Park and Wembley but that will all be forgotten if we can get all three points tonight.
The Spuds are not playing particularly well at this moment. After a bright start to their season, the team has sputtered over the last couple of months, much like the way our team is playing as well. So with both teams needing the points, I think this match is going to be a classic encounter which I hope we will come out on top.
The Spuds need the points because they are still chasing Man City for the final Champions League spot while it is obvious why we need the points. Arsenal can close the gap to Man United to 4 points with a win tonight while a loss might see us drop to third place depending on Chelsea’s result against Birmingham. So it is a game of epic proportions which neither side can afford to lose or draw.
Actually I am glad that we are not playing at the Emirates. As we saw last Sunday, teams come to the Emirates hoping to snatch a draw and if we can’t break them down early (as it frequently happens) then we are in trouble. When we play away, teams tend to be more adventurous thus allowing players like Cesc and Nasri more space to create opportunities. I am sure the Spuds will come at us and it will be an open match with free-flowing football. This will suit us fine as we are more than capable of containing the Spuds attack. What we mustn’t do is to lose our head and concentration like we did at the Emirates.
Getting a result and the points are important but what’s more critical is the need to revenge for the humiliation at the Emirates. Come on you Gunners, do us proud!
