    Well, we have just over 6 hours to wait for us to kick off part two of this defining week which has seen us progress through to the Champions League semi-final and possibly, pending today's result, progression through to the final of the FA Cup.

    Seeing as the games are coming thick and fast and that we're in a relatively comfortable place to finish fourth in the league, I think we may see a shift in priorities this season to the cups we are currently in.

    Do you think that as a squad we have the ability to compete along all fronts in the League (for 4th place), Champions League and the FA Cup with a makeshift defence?

    the FA cup final is after the CL Final so this match is like a cup final ( im not making any sense :D)

    we need 9 points in the PL assuming Villa and Everton win all there games

    Lets Hope Villa lose today so we can Rest Players in the League
    cause the Semi Final Aginst Man U define our season


    COME ON Arsenal

    Nine points is very doable with Portsmouth, Middlesbrough and Stoke City still left to play. I'm not worried at all about our position in the league, the semi's against Chelsea and Man Utd will be immense.

    well judging by today's line up AW still has the PL higher on the list than the FA Cup - can't say he didn't prioritise the match A v LFC AHEAD of the FA Cup s/f - FFS!

    Torres is going to tear us a new one.

    Prior to the FA Cup S/F I'd have said that didn't matter - the game means little in regard to our success - now it takes on a whole new meaning.

    CL qualification (4th spot) is nearly sure, so we can focus everything on the CL SF. Think it's great we play away first, assess our chances higher than most overhere.

    Like I said in the other thread, I wouldn't be surprised if our team just collapsed like last year and the year before.

    An absolute piss take! If that happens I hope that Gazidis is a man and does the right thing.

    Luckily there's more believe within the team itself.

    Would be interesting to do a poll of how people overhere assess our chance v the Mancs. Somehow I feel the average would be 5/1 to qualify for the final. Imo it's very close to 50/50.

    Imo, it should be something like 45/55 with the Mancs being the favourites, clockwork. A lot will depend on the players who will be available for both ties and team selection rather than the quality of our team in general.

    Edit:

    @Quincy42: Feel free to check your PM, mate. ;D

    We have a decent chance. And who knows maybe it's our lucky night at OT. Tiny things decide these Cup ties.

    270 minutes away from CL glory...

    Rome is our City!

    There is definately that worry now. Will this team crumble just like it seems to do on a yearly basis. We're still in a Champions League semi-final for goodness sake! We still have something huge to play for. Let's hope we pull something out of our ass against United. It would be unbelievably disappointing to go out at two semi-finals.
