We play Swansea today in the FA Cup. Recent history suggests Swansea are a dangerous opponent and need to be taken seriously. Good news then! No Chamakh or Djourou.
Being serious for a moment, this fixture could not have come at a worse time for Arsenal FC. We are coming in off the back of a poor result and the confidence isn’t flowing. The ignominy of the last result will be in their minds mixed with the emotions from the previous game against the Swans so it could be an interesting game for the neutral. That is, I just can’t call which Arsenal will turn up.
When faced with criticism this season Arsenal have responded valiantly and performed well so I hope today is no different. We are however a Jekyll and Hyde side and anything could happen.
Just can’t call it. But I hope I will be able to write something positive on Monday. With the successful loan deals for Chamakh and Djourou perhaps Arsene has made room for reinforcements? Exciting and required.
