Football’s oldest knockout competition is back again: Time to give †нє Pea-Cocks a “knockout punch”

Just woke up from a long hangover.

I am meant to apologize for not writing a blog post yesterday…….but i won’t.

My elder sister got married to her heartthrob and †нє wedding i witnessed yesterday was one of †нє best ever. It started a bit late and an after party followed. †нє suit i wore made me feel like i was Nigeria’s agent 419…..another version of James Bond. You can check it out yourselves at http://plixi.com/p/68444888 . †нє wedding actually had a “red carpet” entrance and there were paparazzi everywhere. http://plixi.com/p/68447078 . I believe my esteemed readers can forgive their Arsenal blogger, @enigma106. Oh well…back to things that are Red and White in nature.

Arsenal take on Leeds United in †нє FA Cup today. No disrespect to Leeds, but i don’t feel they are good enough to match our first team. AW †нє Alchemist has used many players through †нє course of †нє season but a particular set has definitely played more than †нє rest.

In goal, Wojciech “Szszsz” Szczesny will have another chance to strut his stuff. I also expect him to start against Keano’s tractor army in †нє Carling Spoon. Lukasz “Flyin Fabbi” Fabianski will return to action against †нє Carpenters next week Saturday. In †нє defence, Bacary “Timaya” Sagna will get deserved rest for †нє wrong reason though. †нє red card he got against †нє Cash Money Oil Money Billionaires earned him an automatic 3-game suspension. †нє games were actually games Emmanuel “Farma” Eboue would’ve played. Leftback Gael “Flash” Clichy will also be rested for today’s game. Kieran “Ogo Gibbsy” Gibbs is still at war with his physio girlie so he’ll get a run out today. AW †нє Alchemist also intends to rest our strongest centreback pairing of Laurent “100%tackle” Koscielny and Johan “Injourou” Djourou thereby paving †нє way for Sebastien “Squisha” Squilacci and any young bloke from †нє Reserves. Havard Nordtveit would have gotten his chance but he now plies his trade with some German outfit with a very long name. In †нє midfield, we might witness †нє return of Aaron “Rambo” Ramsey. NwaSamba Denilson and Tomas “Banana Lomo” Rosicky will also be keen to impress to stake a claim for first team action. Banana Lomo’s experience can be useful when needed. As for NwaSamba, it’s quite sad to see how his career his moved so far. After showing a lot of promise when he was a lot younger, his performances have been an “on and off” affair. Kudos to young Jack “Whizkhid” Wilshere for usurping him. If we had this same fixture last season, Whizkhid would be on †нє pitch while NwaSamba would’ve been rested. Funny how things can change in a year. Finally, in †нє attack, i expect Marouane “ChiAmaka” Chamakh and Nicklas “Wald Bezt” Bendtner to be on †нє starting lineup

My expected lineup should be:
Ogo Gibbsy-Squisha-(Miquel/kyle)-Farma
Rambo-Banana Lomo-NwaSamba
Wald Bezt-ChiAmaka-Wal Kuint

We are playing a squad that we should deliver †нє FA Cup knockout blow to. They are definitely weaker than us “on paper”.

In other news, Thomas “Verminator” Vermaelen has suffered another setback and is set to miss another month. AW †нє Alchemist, you know what to do. I wouldn’t mind another relatively unknown defender from Krypton.

MadMan Coyle has said on national TV that he wants our chipper/lobber-in-chief, Carlos “Aztec Warrior” Vela. AW †нє Alchemist wants him to “stay in England”. So i feel †нє loan move will be in †нє club’s best interest.

AW †нє Alchemist has also declared interest in a young Belgian zombie, †нє bioHazard from Eden. That’s †нє only zombie i know with bags of potential. This is †нє type of player AW †нє Alchemist converts to “raw gold”.

Leeds United have nothing to lose so †нє pressure is on us to deliver.

†нє highest scoreline in †нє Emirates still remains Arsenal 7 Slavia Prague 0. It’s high time we create a new record.

But this is football. A 10-0 resounding win and a 1-0 lucky win still amount to †нє same thing… Qualification to †нє next round.

Enjoy †нє game wherever you are.

Here’s to a happier blogpost tomorrow.
