Class meets Cash : The Man City Pre-match Preview

This is the sort of game I’d like to kick back with chicken and beer and watch with friends as I know a win would put city behind us(forever I hope) and we’d still have a game in hand. The Transfer Market is Open and although we’re not asking for a Messi or Sneidjer , we would appreciate a good Central Defender & Goalkeeper not a 17 year old. Thank you Wenger.

So, Man.City on Wednesday. In Proving critics wrong City have done well, actually 41points so far this season as they are really giving the original “Big 3(soon to become Big 2 with Cheatski’s recent failings)” a scare. We’ve already beaten them away this season and we welcome them to the Emirates with full confidence. It won’t be no easy task.

Our runaway players Adebayor and Toure were involved in a ‘cat fight’ bust up and hopefully that works in our favour. As if things couldn’t get better for us, danger men and form players Mario Ballotelli (who seems to have finally blended with the team) & David Silva have been ruled out by knee injuries. There’s Tevez and though he was rather quiet in the first Leg at the City of Manchester Stadium he has been banging in goals of late and has 12 goals this season which makes him 2nd behind Berba. Let’s hope Arsene’s choice of defenders for the game can keep both of them at bay.

Our present team is looking as sharp as ever with every player holding his part well with 4 players making the EpL Team of the week. The midfield trio of Cesc, Wilshere and Song providing the right balance of attack and defence respectively, In attack you could tell from RvP’s celebration at Birmingham that he’s hungry for more goals, Theo looks like he has finally gotten the starting shirt ahead of Arshavin and he would want to keep it that way, Nasri, Still having his best season in an Arsenal shirt. He was on the score sheet when we played them earlier and would be looking to do so again.

With news that TV5 should return to outdoor training soon and if not AW would buy someone, I for one pray he doesn’t so we could buy someone and then TV5 becomes fit almost immediately. That I’d definitely love. Ramsey returns to the squad today but I doubt he’ll be in the team, and Fab has been tweeting all day about a ‘new face’ being in the team for tomorrow, Rio Miyachi maybe? Who knows.

Come 21:45 hours after d match let’s hope I’ll be able to quote a line from Jay-Z with the saying “You can pay for school and can’t buy class!”.

    Sagna JD Koscielny Clichy

  1. Would’ve loved to see Balotelli play,his .I actually do feel City won’t miss him in this particular game as he rarely does helps defensively.Arsenal would benefit from Arshavin starting ahead of Walcott,the one thing City’s defence has in abundance is pace,his creativity would be greatly needed.Nice article

  2. This is ours to lose. I’v got my pension on this one…the best Citeh can get is a draw and we won’t even allow them get that close.
    C’mon you gunners!
