The Gunners couldn’t do it first time round, but they’ve got a second chance tonight to move on to the FA Cup quarter finals.
Our game at the home of the shadow dwellers will have instilled some confidence into the side so hopefully, we’ll comprehensively dispatch Hull City to where they belong.
I’m hoping Mr Wenger doesn’t tinker with the side too much, Monreal should be back in the side after his rest at the weekend, Kos and Petr Cech are still absent and Coquelin will be serving a one match ban following his stupid red card against the Spervs.
So Paul Easter will play alongside the BFG again, Flamini will probably come in for le Coq, but apart from that, I hope the team stays the same as that that got the draw on Saturday.
Welbeck has to play upfront, Giroud on the bench and maybe Sanchez will be given a rest and Iwobi comes in. Ospina had a good game at the weekend and my confidence in him as our N°2 keeper rose slightly.
Hull will probably make several changes but we learned in the first game against them that this doesn’t guarentee us a win.
The boys need to keep their concentration throughout the game, this could be our only chance of silverware this season so they have to advance to the quarters.
I’m looking forward to the game and hoping to see some improvements to our game plan and style. Enjoy the game where ever you’ll be watching it.
Come on you fucking Gunners!
