Man Utd Vs Arsenal : FA Cup Quarter Final Preview

You don’t know how glad I am that there’s finally a game to play, and its one between the two most successful sides in the FA Cup history. The fallout and noise and accusations and charges that flew around after the Barca game was getting too much. Its this simple, Barca taught us a footballing lesson. Why? We sold out our footballing values. And it was compounded by RVP’s sending off at a vital point. We all know how the rest of the story goes. Its saturday and we have our season to fight for. So too does United.

Unlike previous encounters in the cup, this one is probably the most important to us both since the 2005 final(I’d give anything for the same outcome today with us progressing) seeing as failure for us to progress leaves us with just the league to focus on while United would want to avoid what everyone is calling a ‘mini meltdown’. None of these teams likes to play weakened teams against each other but United would be keeping an eye on the UCL game on tuesday and I say they have the advantage on us seeing as they haven’t kicked ball in seven days, but neither have we kicked ball since Saturday(seeing as all we did at the Camp Nou was chase the ball for 90 mins)

To team news, like we’re used to, important players always pick up knocks around this time and they haven’t failed to deliver, Fabregas(hamstring), Song(Knee), Walcott(ankle), Chezzer(finger), Vermaelen(some mysterious ancient injury that has no cure) are all missing for us meaning we should still have a solid first 11 but a mediocre bench. Good times. We can take comfort in the fact that manure have their share of absentees, Nani, Park(our tormentor), Ferdinand, Valencia won’t feature.

I’m hoping SAF does us favour by starting say, Obertan, Brown, Gibson, then we can re-enact the murder at Anfield last week. Simply put, we have to win this game, by any means, yes its at OT, so what? Its not Nou Camp and they’re not Barca but neither were Sunderland when we drew blanks. We can afford that, drawing blanks that is, but I’d rather play this tie once and avoid a replay. We need to win something this season and even though most people want the league I want the league and cup double and a win today keeps that dream alive

Possible Formation

      Almunia

Sagna Kozzer Djourou Gibbs

    Wilshere Diaby

Bendtner Nasri Arshavin

      RVP

Well let’s hope for a great spectacle today shorn of moronic refereeing decisions and horrific injuries. Hopefully get an early goal and see Rambo come on for the last fifteen minutes to grab the winner.

  1. I hate seeing united called manure, as a gooner you are showing disrespect to those who died in the 1958 air crash. A true englishmen never mind humanatarian or arsenal fan for that matter would not use this label which was created as an insult to those who died in munich. As for the game only fate/fabregas will decide

  2. I don’t think the writer had any idea how the word was coined when he used it. That being said I doubt that’s how the word came bout seeing how frequently it is used, its a word that would always be associated with United simply because Arsenal fans coined it. No one is showing disrespect of any kind. Wenger’s regarded as a paedophile by the United faithful, no one likes it but it continues to happen. Simply put, with rival teams, words will always be thrown around so long its football. RIP to those who lost their lives.
