Wembley pitch wins the title for Arsenal?
April 11, 2010
Ninety-minutes on that disgusting pitch should have sapped plenty of energy out of the Chavs from West London.
The Russian gangster’s club side face Jack Wilshere’s Wanderers of Bolton on Tuesday evening at the Bridge, I don’t really expect much from Bolton, although they did beat West Ham on their last trip to the Capital.
Bolton have a poor away record on the whole, if Chavski are feeling leggy after the Cup Semi, we may see a chance of dropped points.
Very slim chance, but the hope is most certainly there.
Tottering Trotspurs take on Pompey this afternoon in the 2nd Semi, pray for a draw, extra time, injuries, and plenty of broken hearts.
Hopefully the pitch has cut up a lot more since the first Semi, the size and nature of the pitch certainly leaves a mark on any players who have played a full game in the past.
One hundred and twenty minutes will finish off any players for a good week.
Recovery for our game on Wednesday evening would be pushing it, and make no mistake about it, the spuds game is our only proper remaining game of the season.
We win in midweek… we win the title.
United are done, and only a point in front of us, they won’t beat City at Eastlands, not a chance.
Chavs could easily win all 3 remaining homes games, but the two away days at Spuds and Liverpool should give us much hope.
Only five wins out of five will land us the title, a draw will just not cut it on Wednesday night.
The spuds have a pretty good home record this season, a full week of rest for our lads, coupled with a taxing game on Wembley marshes for them, and we get the edge we need to ram raid 3 hugely valuable points.
This will be the most important North London derby for quite a while, history is on our side.
Back in May 1971, Arsenal went to the Lane knowing a score draw would not be good enough for our title chances, Ray Kennedy and co made sure 3 points were the order of the day.
Arsenal, as we all know, went on to lift the league and cup double.
In April 2010, Nicklas Bendtner and co need to make sure the same outcome is forthcoming.
The secret squirrels on the Wembley marshes should get the momentum moving in our favour today.
