    After Mondays result against Crystal Palalce, Arsenal play Sheffield utd in the FA cup,(our most realistic chance of Silver wear this season) after they beat West Ham on Penalties.

    Arsène looks likely to field some of our big guns on Saturday .Henry, Vieira, Ljunberg all look likely to start and Manuel Almunia will probably start aswell.Robin Van Persie may get a start, as will Reyes aswell.

    The last time we had played Sheffield United, was in the FA.Cup as well.We had won one-nil from a contraversial Freddie Ljunberg Goal.The ball was played intyo the referee but yhe didnt blow the whistle.As a result Neil Warnock got a fine from the Fa about the incident .

    That match also produced one of the best saves ever from David seaman, who clawed back the ball from the other site of the net to show great flexibilty at thirty eight years of age.

    It looked like this:


    My prediction another 1-0 win for the gunners.An Henry special.

    I think this match will be much tighter than the other 2 cup games.

    3-1 to AFC or thereabouts...fewer opportunities than against Palace!

    I afraid the player will distracted by the fact that they are going to play bayern coming fixture...

    2-0 RVP & ljungberg
    Henry should take a rest, Bergkamp to start since he cannot travel to bayern...
    Senderos shld start ahead of Cygan or Cygan Senderos partnership...
    Flamini + Fabregas for the centre midfield :angel

    Much tighter than Monday's rout...As long as we win I'll be happy.

    As for our last meeting, it was my fellow countryman Paul Peschisolido who forced Seaman into that memorable save. Will never forget that one.

    It will be tough, but we're playing so well at the moment it could actually be quite easy. I'll go for 3-0. No idea who will play so I won't predict scorers.

    This will be tight. We'll have one eye on Bayern. I hope Jens stays in goal to get some consistency going again.

    I'd like to see this line up:

    Eboue Toure Cygan Clichy
    Freddie Cesc Flamini Reyes
    Dennis RvP

    Prediction: 1-0 goal from Dennis.

    Spanky spanky time. We're going to send their odious fans back home with a 5-1 defeat.

    With the league gone, the players will be up for this one. Sure Sheffield United will fight hard, but they're along way off premiership standards and we'll comfortably beat them 4-0.

    Well done gooner#1, enjoy it mate.

    2-0 Will be a very physical game. Watch out for Sheff Utd right back Geary if he plays dirty little b*stard :evil:

    Players should be up for the battle though.
