Rovers v Arsenal

Post by Rover the Moon » Sat Dec 15, 2007 6:08 pm

90 minutes to save our season??

An FA Cup run isn't guaranteed and finishing 6th isn't exactly like winning something so this is the best route to making the season a resounding success.

But can we defend??

Based on what I just saw, no we can't. Every defender made a mistake that led to a goal. Nelsen was our best defender on the basis that his mistake was the least appalling.

Richard Dinnis made the point on Saturday, we get ourselves motivated for games against the big teams, fail to turn up against relegation fodder. It's perhaps a good thing that the game has come so quickly, we've got a chance to pick ourselves up again without getting too down about Saturday. And we know our back four are better than what recent scorelines suggest.

When the draw was made, I felt confident that we could beat Arsenal's kindergarten. Now it feels vital that we win in order to get back on track. :|

Arsenal will set up with their 2nd string right? isn't that what wenger said before the cup started? If so we should dominate the game but having seen the highlights of the Wigan game then it could become embarrassing even if they are the \"2nd\" team...........

Even their youngsters can be ruthless.

Im not too confident about this game but hopefully we will get up Wengers nose again the french prick, RVP aint in the squad for this game.

After seeing how shit our back 4 was in the last game, and with Arsenal scoring goals for fun, i think we're gonna lose 3-1 :-(

Don't you mean 18) year olds?

I'm hoping it's a good thing that I know very little about half those players.
