I was devastated last Saturday, and I am sure most of you felt the same way!
Arsenal played well last Tuesday against Newcastle, winning 3-nil at home. We had 20 shots at goal with 6 on targets. It was a well-rounded game, where the team not only defended well, but attacked attractively.
While the previous excellent performances and results should have influenced Arsenal to strive in the FA Cup fourth round match against Southampton, apparently the players did not receive the memo. I would question Arteta as well. I understand the need for players to be rotated. But for me, a win against the Saints in the FA cup is more crucial than a win in the Premiership. The line-up for that match just did not work for me. We definitely need a miracle to be in the top 6 but by challenging for the FA Cup, the Club could have another alternative to pursue the European Cups, if ever this season ends badly.
Alas, the team conceded a scrappy goal to exit the fourth round. Only 2 matches for Arsenal in the FA Cup journey. If only….. yeah, it’s not easy to comprehend #gutted Arsenal is left with Europa League and Premiership for the remaining season. Let’s hope we make the best of what’s left.
Arsenal returns to St. Mary’s this Wednesday, 27 January 2021 at 4.15 am for a “rematch” and then hosts the current leader, Man United, on Sunday, 31 January 2021 at 1.30 am. I hope the team can bounce back from this defeat.
Anyone know what happened to Auba?
