Matchday at last. And Hull as well. When did we meet them last? Yes, you got it right. Just go to the banner at the top if you don’t remember.
The entire Hull city descended on the capital that day. Driving down the motorway felt a bit strange and scary. Every second car had stripes and tiger banners. It felt almost like heading into enemy territory.
But that was different. Do or die for them. Yet another trophy for us. 😛
Today is league. Very different. A tough game. The tigers are tough. Period. I was surprised to note:
(a) Hull is only one of three PL teams that have scored in every game so far (other two are Chavs and Everton – not us, we play a beautiful game, silly! 😛 )
(b) Hull had 13 players on international duty last week. Eh! Some plating for obscure countries like Antarctica and Papua New Guinea! 😛
Tough game, first of 4 relatively easy (must win? 😛 ) games. Even the Arsenal website has a poll asking fans whether we will win all four!
Realistically speaking, I think we need to score twice. Where will be get the two goals? Hmmm.
Anyway, two goals or not, we are probably in for an exciting game. My best guess:
Bellerin, Monreal, Mertesacker Gibbs,
Ox, Cazorla, Alexis
Monreal and BFG in central defence will be exciting!
However, having said all that, this game has only one possible outcome. Unleash the demolition squad, Wenger. COYG!!!!!!
