AC Milan, AAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCC MMMMMMMMMMilan! I actually think that's not a bad draw for us. Sure, they've won it on numerous occasions and are currently the holders, BUT, I feel that we have the squad to beat them. The current Milan side have several stars in their ranks but they are struggling in Serie A at the moment, especially at the San Siro. They do enjoy Europe though and although its a BIG test for Arsenal, we have a style of play that they will not enjoy. They have several aging players in their side and our football, will wear them out. We have great pace in the side and must keep our focus as Milan have a very experienced side. Obviously u need a bit bit of luck and we mustn't concede a goal in the first leg at The Emirates. U also need a bit of luck with injuries, something we haven't had for a couple of seasons now. I'm sure many Gooners thought "Oh no, Milan" well, I'll tell u every team wanted to avoid Arsenal. I'm sure we'll be fine with the draw and maybe we'll raise our game even more, I'm not saying Milan are an easy touch, but it may work for us.
As for tomorrow, the Spuds are coming to town!! I feel over the last few years this fixture, in my eyes, became just another game. That due to our success and Spuds struggling. Please don't call me cocky, it's just how I felt. That changed though when they nearly pipped us to forth spot and it ignited my feelings towards them. The Spud fans, decided to become very cocky and believed a shift of power to the white half of north London was arising, Well, as we know, it didn't happen, and the next season we finished even more points ahead of them. U would think this would shut them up, oh no. They got worse!! This is the Year of the Cockerel, we'll do it this year! Resulting in me having several £50 bets with numerous Spuds! Anyway, five months later, a new manager and twenty two points behind, they began to quieten down. Then the Cup draw sparks them all off again and the coming Saturday!! They begin again!! I just hope, that one day, they will realise that they set themselves up the fall every time.
We have only Walcott as a doubt for tomorrows game, which shocks me as I thought Eboue was out for ages, strange. It good to have a fully rested squad against a side who had ten men and had to use every resource against City in the week. It all points to a home victory, and altough I vowed never to predict a score again. I just had a tenner on Arsenal winning 3-1!! So thats my prediction.
