Arsenal v Birmingham: Time to bring on the rain to end the drought
This is the first time I’m writing a post when a title is up for grabs. It’s a feeling that every blogger would want to get.
Arsenal started their Carling Spoon campaign with a convincing 4-1 win against Twitchy’s Twitch FC. Our last Carling Spoon encounter with Twitch FC didn’t bring fond memories. We were whooped by 5 goals to 1 thereby ending their barren spell against us. A 4th round encounter against Newcastle saw us emerge as 4-nil winners. A hilarious own goal, 2 well taken goals from Walcott and a wonder strike from Wald Bezt Bendtner did the magic. The 1/4 draw saw us play with Wigan. We were suffering from a patchy home form but an own goal from Alcatraz and a slide in from Wald Bezt Bendtner took us to the semis.
Roy Keane was supposed to be the gaffer that would’ve guided Ipswich to the semis against us but he got his ass fired. After a 2-legged affair with the Tractor boys, we booked our Wembley ticket.
Arsenal go into today’s final match knowing that they’ll be without Fabregas and Walcott.
AW the Alchemist was disappointed that El Capitan wouldn’t lead his troops today.
He says,”if he played this match, he could damage his participation in the other targets we have”.
He went on to say that playing El Capitan might aggravate his hammy injury and he could be out for all eternity. The squad is more than capable to make up for El Capitan’s absence so I believe that El Capitan should sit his arse tight and enjoy the game.
Fabregas will definitely be disappointed that he won’t lead Arsenal in a final match for the first time since taking over the arm band in November 2008.
He says,”the boss is right and the most important thing is that I get fit and help Arsenal for the rest of the season”
A loyal servant whose eyes are focused on the events that will come up in from now till May.
There’s an emerging tale that the players have told AW the Alchemist if they win the game El Capitan would be the man to lift the trophy. This shows that Arsenal FC is one big happy family with AW the Alchemist as the father and El Capitan as the first born son even if he’s 23.
Sagna says that we are not scared anymore in big games. He has played a major role in the club’s successes this season. He has even added goals to his game.
AW the Alchemist has been criticized over the years for honing young talent instead of shipping in “experienced” and “made” footballers. Today’s win will vindicate our faithful manager. Arsenal FC can boast of being financially stable even if we were on a barren spell for almost 6 years. The major reason why Arsenal hasn’t won anything is that there have been injuries to key players when their “experience” was needed to see us through. Things have been a lot different this season because of the sufficient depth in the squad.
Today’s opponents have an appalling record against us. We beat them home and away this season and we have a better squad on paper.
For the 11 men that will put their names in our record books as the first set of players that brought a trophy to our cobweb stricken cabinet, I expect Wojciech Szczesny to be the man between the sticks. Since his inception to our team, he has steadied the defensive ship at the young age of 20.
Even if Gibbsy has been the left back of the Carling Spoon, Clichy will get the nod in today’s game. Sagna will continue at right back.
Djourcielny will continue in the heart of our defense. The holding roles should go to the Whizkhid and our African Blondie.
Super Snoody Nasri will assume the Mr. Creativity role behind the front three.
Carling Spoon president Bendtner will take the right wing, AA23 will take the left while rVp will lead the line and his men tomorrow. It will also be the first time he’ll lead the side in a final match.
The lineup should be
Wald Bezt B52-rVp-AA23
I’ve written this quote a million and one times before but I’ll write it again
“Until you’ve tasted your first cigarette, you can never become addicted to smoking”
A win against Birmingham will kickstart our season for the achievement of greater things ahead.
I’ll consider Arsenal as Capua’s Spartacus, who brought the long awaited downpour after he decapitated Theokeles the two-handed swordman.
Wembley has been tagged as our gladiatorial ground, Arsenal it’s time to bring on the rain to end the drought.

Victory is a must today. I just hope they play without the handbrake and really go and attack Birmingham from the start to the finish, if we can do that then…..
The cup is ours!
As usual the trophy drought continues…..
