This Saturday we take on a Bolton side that are doing really, really well. I so the way they played against Chelsea, and I thought they were excellent. To be honest, Chelsea made more than enough chances to finish the game before half time, but they didn’t and they got their punishment. They also knocked Liverpool out of the FA cup by beating them 3 – 2 at Anfield when Okocha scored a super free kick, and even though they got hammered 4 – 0 by Manchester United they had chances when it was 0 – 0 but coz they didn’t take them they got punished. Normally we are use to seeing Bolton in the bottom three somewhere but this year they are in 10th position in the premier league, and that itself proves how much they have improved. Bolton is not an easy team to play away, and all gunners will have a sour taste from last season. We were winning 2 – 0 at one point of the game and suddenly we let into very, very cheap goals and ended up being very costly as we needed those points desperately, and we dropped them at a crucial stage of the championship race. I felt like crying after the match, that is how much it affected me and after that we knew it will be very difficult as it was out of our hands and we knew Man Utd were not going to slip up and our nightmare was confirmed when we lost to Leeds at home. Sam Alladyce, although I hate him has bought in some real good players and has revived there careers, just when everyone nearly forgot the names of all the players. He has bought in Okocha, Djorkaeff, Campo, Jardel, Ba as well as Davies. The only team to beat Bolton at there own ground this season has Been Birmingham and even they were made to huff and puff till the end of the game. It was nice to see the Arsenal second team beat the West Brom first team, and now that we will be facing Boro Wenger may decide to throw in a few more first teamers. If we beat boro, and that is a big if, coz Boro will come at us with everything, and when they play well, they play very solid at the back, although they lack someone special up front, we may meet Bolton or Villa in the final although I think it will be Bolton as they are better. Below is a list of who I think will be Bolton’s key players: Okocha – Key Man 1 Djorkaeff + Nolan – Key Men 2 Stelios + Pedersen + Davies – Key Men 3 Campo + Ngotty – Key Men 4 Jaaskelainen – Key Man 5 Below is the best eleven I would select for Arsenal: Lehmann Lauren Toure Campbell Clichy Ljungberg Viera Edu Pires Bergkamp Henry Although I think Wenger will go with: Lehmann Toure Cygan Campbell Clichy Ljungberg Vieira Gilberto Pires Bergkamp Henry Tottenham take on Man utd at White Hart Lane on Sunday and they will get totally battered right from the beginning. Chelsea take on Fulham and although Fulham are having a brilliant season I can’t see Chelsea losing three games in a row. If all goes well with a lot of luck, both of our London sides can do us a big favour, with Tottenham praying to god that they somehow beat Man utd, and Fulham getting something off Chelsea. I hope the Arsenal team are really fired up for this match and are ready to make up for last seasons result at their ground. The first eleven Arsenal players that played against Blackburn have had a good five days rest, compared to quite a few of the first team players of Bolton who had to play 115 minutes to beat Southampton on Tuesday. There are no excuses for Arsenal as we have a good enough squad, and I hope gunners get full revenge for last years result. Come On You Gooners!!!
