Can Manchester City beat us?
October 24, 2010
This is how I feel on this crisp, sunny, yet cold Sunday morning in London Town.
Not.. Can Arsenal beat City.
Our midfield today will be comprised of a Steely Cameroonian hitman, accompanied by the elegant rangey skills and power of a Parisian box-to-box man and the trio are completed with a touch of Spanish genius to bring it all together.
In Song, Diaby and Cesc, we have a perfectly balanced midfield trio.
City won’t be deploying a midfield that is anywhere near as balanced, of that I am very sure.
Yaya Toure, De Bully, and Barry are certainly not balanced, mentally…anyway!
We won’t miss Jack in this one, I love him more than you do… but this game away to City is not the game for Cesc and Jack to play that midfield.
Diaby and Song HAVE to be both on form today, no lapses in concentration, 100% determined, intelligent work rate at a clinical level is required to beat City.
Cesc can be at 60% and will still roam around as the best player on the park.
The Holy Trinity for Arsenal today is the aforementioned midfield duo along with Chamakh, his role in bringing Cesc and the wide men into the box for pops at the City goalie, Hart, will be the key to winning this game.
We are going up to that war zone for 3 points, not 1.
Will a draw do you ask?
I will tell you at 7pm
You see, one cannot say “we would have taken a draw this morning”…. that is crap, we don’t know this morning how the game will play out.
If we get butchered for 90 minutes and escape with a 0-0… yup i’ll take it.. with glee… however, if we do what we usually do, and are more than capable of doing, and butcher them for 90 mins, then a draw will not do.
They are serious contenders for sure, and will certainly provide us with the toughest games in Manchester this season and for a few seasons to come… don’t listen to the nonsense coming from the Red end of mancland… they are skintus maximus!
A proper rumble in the manc jungle, this game will be high, high intensity, fought by 22 men for 90 hardcore minutes.
Buckle up, and settle in for a barnstormer that we may just nick 3-2.
