Arsenal Squeak Through

arsenal pennentWell Arsenal have made it through to the FA Cup Final, they won yesterday defeating Wigan on penalty shots. The win was less than convincing , the Gunners struggled against a Championship side that almost toppled them in the second half on a penalty goal. Arsenal fought back hitting the woodwork a couple of times before finally scrambling a goal into the Wigan net from a corner kick. Arsenal never looked confident or sure of themselves through the full 90 minutes that ended in a 1-1 tie. They were little better in the extra 30 minutes which still remained deadlocked at 1-1. The game came down to penalty shots and Arsenal were assertive in scoring four straight goals that sent them into the final in May. Today Hull City play Shefield United in the other semi final game, the winner will play Arsenal in the Cup Final next month. I sincerely hope that in the meantime the Gunners find their form or we will face another year without winning a trophy, if that happens we will probably see the departure the manager Arsene Wenger. Its been to say the least, a seesaw ride for Arsenal fans this year.  Lets hope in May we have the FA Cup in the trophy case and can look forward to a better season next year. Go Gunners Go!!!!!

God Bless and keep reading
