some kind of record surely?
goals aren't wooden. Were they in the olden days or something?
Yeah, that is some record. If he was a little luckier, he might be top scorer in the league then.
Him and Berbatov strike me as two of the most naturally gifted players in the league at the moment. They make everything look so ridiculously easy
Also, EDUARDO. I knew him coming back was gonna be important, but didn't expect him to get up to speed *quite* this quickly
Yes, I'm aware we were playing Cardiff, but still
Best chance of a trophy, so we have to go for it.
What a stupid question. I always want us to do well in the FA Cup, as would any Arsenal fan. The league is clearly more important, yes. But with Burnley in the next round at home, and then either Sheff Utd or Hull if we get through (again, at home), we actually have a chance of doing pretty well in it this year
Also, as tonight has shown, it's a good opportunity for people like Vela to come in and get a start. It's no coincidence that we played some great, attacking stuff tonight with two NATURALLY wide men. Hopefully Wenger connects the two, and doesn't just stick fucking Eboue back in against Sunderland. He will though, of course
It's 3 more games, if we win the FA cup but finish fifth it will be because we have been shit all season and Villa have done well, not because we had a few weeks with midweek fixtures.
we need a winning mentality, going out of the FA cup to Cardiff would have crushed us.
Remember the Reading player last year who said that getting knocked out of the FA Cup early would help their chances of staying up, and look what happened. Wins breed confidence, and if we don't finish 4th, so be it. It won't be anything to do with the FA Cup I'd love us to win something this year first and foremost. There's nothing to say we can't do both either.
We're where we are in the league due to our inability to kill games off. We've actually sorted out a lot of our problems of late, but we've chosen now to go on a barren spell in front of goal. Personally, I think we're only going to get stronger from here until the end of the season
If Chelsea get a draw at Villa Park on Saturday, that'd be very much welcome too
top scorer, golden shoe and knighted
