Before I get on to discussing todays game on the south coast, let’s have a look at Leicester. Yesterday they took Manchester City apart, they only had 34% possession and scored three goals. With that game they made a real statement of intent and said to the rest of the potential league winners, “Don’t doubt us anymore, we can win the Premiership”.
They probably will and as much as I want us to win it, if Leicester get the trophy then it can only be good for the PL, it’s about time a team came through who are not the regular four or five teams that contest the top four spots every season.
Right, that’s enough discussion about another fucking team being better than us.
Todays game against the Cherries will be our last bite of the cherry, lose today and we can say goodbye to any hopes of being crowned champions in May. We need to be up for a bit of cherry picking and get back on track, rediscover our form from a few months ago and put in the effort to make a fight of it till the end.
Bournemouth are a decent side and have a good manager in Eddie Howe, but they are not on our level so I expect nothing less than a convincing win today, then life will just be a bowl of cherries. Beating Leicester next weekend would be the cherry on top.
Bournemouth have had their injury problems just like us, their best striker, Callum Wilson, has been out since the end of September when he was injured against Stoke. However, they do have Afobe, will he come back to haunt us today? He’s been scoring regularly so expect him to have a good game and their goalkeeper, Boruc, ain’t too bad either so expect him to have a blinder.
They’ll probably play a high press game, they’ve done their homework, they know we are susceptible to that tactic and that could be our downfall once again.
So today is our last bite of the cherry, lose and we will be struggling to finish in the top four and the bastards from the shadows in N17 could finish above us….. what a fucking nightmare scenario, doesn’t bare thinking about.
I expect a strong team being fielded today, normal back four, le Big Coq and the Egyptian just in front of them and Sanchez, Özil and Ramsey supplying Giroud and either Iwobi or Campbell.
It’s the last chance saloon, will we show that we still have some bollocks, or will we say ‘Cherry oh Cherry oh baby’ to our best chance to win the premiership in the last 12 years.
Today will give us the answer.
Come on you fucking Gunners
The ‘GunnersoreArse Six’ are not fucking innocent.
Footnote: Here’s a fucking ‘orrible dilemma, if we beat Leicester next weekend it could decrease the gap between them and the Spervs….. and possibly give the shadow dwellers a chance to win the fucking league. Though they do have to play away to Man City next weekend, but seeing how Leicester dismantled them yesterday, the cuntz could win at the Etihad! What do we hope for, us to beat Leicester and give the Spervs a chance or lose to Leicester and hope City win? Fucking hell, it’s a fucking nightmare innit…….
