Exclusive - Quadruple Still on for Arsenal
Against the background of City's miserable result in the frozen wastes of Kyiv last night it was at least pleasing to see Arsenal remain on track for the quadruple.
Having been in pole position for the Carling Cup and their Champions League tie against Barcelona, they have found themselves hit the exit button in both competitions. Two down two to go.
Favourably placed in the FA Cup and Premier League only 2 more surrenders are needed for them to achieve a memorable quadruple.
We all know they won't do the business in Stretford this weekend. Shorn of their achilles heel slicer-in-chief Fabregas they continue to perform as if the goals are on the side of the pitch. The white flag is ready to be unfurled in Trafford Park on Saturday as this team of 'beautiful footballers' will once again lose a match against Stretford Steelers before they step on to the swamp ..because they have got no ticker!
Van Persie seems to have adopted Arsene Wenger's hearing problems. How can he hear a whistle whilst he is concentrating on cheating? Do they not know that men are not good at multi-tasking?
And finally poor beleagured Arsene himself blames a poor referee's decision for his team getting played off the park and not having a shot on target (or at all) in the entire match. Oh..and his team not seeing the ball for probably around 75 minutes.
Yes, dear Gooners it is indeed a harsh life when you play against a quality team with 10 men following an unjust sending-off. But hey..what goes around comes around.
So the Ashburton cabinet will once again resemble the one we have grown to love at Man City. I suspect ours will have something in it before yours. I've told you..the Gods are conspiring for City's trophy drought to end at the hands of Stretford's finest...you heard it first on VMC
