I wait Nine years for a piece of silverware, and I’m buggered if two don’t come along at once !
Well ok, its not a real trophy, but its sure a lot better to be winning it than losing it.
We fans , and the club, have to listen as people tell us we cant beat the big team. Bollocks to them then, I’m counting that as a win.
At very least it should assure the players that they can indeed beat the top English teams. The importance of confidence cant be overstated.
When we had anything resembling a full squad we led the league., then when we got anything like a full squad back we won the FA Cup. Now this. The way I look at it is that if our players are fit we win shit.
More importantly the way we played in the first half speaks volumes. City players looked like sulking hound dogs after 10 minutes, as by that time they had realised that it was our ball and they were not going be allowed to play with it.
You all saw the game. Loads of positives. Sanogo, Chambers,Gibbs and Jack were all very good. Well, everyone was really, but they stood out.
However my man of the match would have been old “no legs”himself, our new club Captain, Mr “cant hack it in big games” Mikel Arteta. He never put a foot wrong.
Mikel is everything you would want in an Arsenal Captain and a lot more. The perfect professional and representative of the club.
So come on you Positistas, lets hear three cheers for Mikel…….hip-hip…………hip-hip………hip-hip
