We're heading to Wembley!

Bacary Sagna: sustained a concussion and will mis FA CUP tie (pic from
When i saw a result of Blackpool 2-0 Manchester United, my eyes lit up and my heart stopped for a second. "Finally the gap between us will only be 3 points". What a disappointment to see a result of 2-3 at full time for the red devils. I have to give it to them - they are a very resilient team that does not give up easily, even playing an away game. We are sitting 2nd right now, 5 points behind United and 1 point ahead of City. We still have several games to go and anything could happen, but at this point we know that we are serious title contenders.

Bacary Sagna sustained a concussion and will most likely be out for the FA cup tie. That means we will probably see Eboue playing on the full back position. I am not worried about it too much, Emmanuel proved that he is capable of being a good defender and offers great runs up the flank. Sagna is reported to be in good condition, I wish him a speedy recovery.

Next game is on 30.01.2011 against Huddersfield Town, FA CUP at the Emirates Stadium, followed by games against Everton, Newcastle, Wolverhampton. Finally February 16th sees us playing against Barcelona at home (once again). Anyways, the next month looks packed with games from all kind of competitions, it will nervous and very tough for us. Arsenal used to break down around February or March each year - lets just hope this team has the mental strength and proper attitude to lift some silverwares this season.

Also, Adebayor is reportedly in Madrid to complete his loan from City. Hope the c*nt never gets any game time.

TL;DR: ManUnited won, Sagna injured but not serious, next month will be hell.
