So Arsenal have been knocked out of the FA Cup by Blackburn Rovers.
Cup competitions always give us shocks and today it was us yet again. Only recently Bradford City knocked us out of the Capital One Cup.
So it’s just the same old story really.
We rest some of our “regular” starters, give a few reserve players a run out and then try but ultimately fail in progressing to the next round. But wait, we can’t even use that as an excuse any more, as like the Bradford game we had a very strong side out.
And just like the Bradford game, Gervinho was the man to miss a sitter which would have made all the difference.
He might be good for the Ivory Coast but for us he’s useless. Didier Drogba he is not.
Anyway, the FA Cup isn’t a proper trophy anyway, 4th spot is where it’s at.
And look on the bright side, this paves the way for Arsenal to have a glorious Champions League campaign and life the European Cup!
One can dream can’t they?
