Well Sunday marks our final home game of the season.
It’s been another one of those transitional seasons and while most fans will be disappointed there is plenty to look forward to next season.
Thierry Henry and Robin Van Persie should be back, who when fully fit will be like two new signings. Scoring has been a major problem this season and without our two highest scorers for much of the campaign you can’t blame us for struggling.
But at least we’ve secured 4th place and have the chance to play in the Champions League again.
And with Liverpool against AC Milan in this years Champions League Final, are the omens good for yet another Barcelona and Arsenal Final next season?
We can always hope!
But onto the game on Sunday, and we see the reigning Champions visit the Emirates for what should be an interesting encounter.
Ideally, Manchester City will beat United in the derby so that Sunday’s match has an even great significance.
Then it will be even sweeter if we get a result against Chelsea.
Arsene Wenger expects Arsenal fans to show Cashley Cole ‘respect’ if he plays which I suppose is the diplomatic thing to say. Personally I hope he gets the abuse he deserves but with Wayne Bridge being the better left back then it wouldn’t at all surprise me if he plays instead of Cuntface. And funnily enough that’s what Wenger expects.
The early team news is that Tomas Rosicky is only 50/50 for the game, while Freddie is definitely out with a hamstring problem. That means it will probably be Hleb and Baptista in midfield with Adebayor alone up front. Baptista has been hot and cold this season but he does offer a threat in the air which could trouble Chelsea, especially if Carvalho is still out.
I’m personally really looking forward to the game and despite the fact that Chelsea have been poor and looked tired recently against Newcastle, Bolton and Liverpool you would expect them to raise their game against us. What better way to make things better by beating Arsenal in their own back yard?
Despite that though, I’m confident we can beat Chelsea and cap of a miserable week for the Russians.
