Not a match preview

"It's only after we've lost everything, that we're free to do anything."

- Tyler Durden, Fight Club

So this is it, the last throw of the dice. We're fourth in the league no matter which way we turn. We're out of the FA Cup. We've only got 90 relevant minutes left to our season, and we're doing it against Utd at the Emirates. 

We've got to make it count. 

We can go through. We don't deserve this chance, considering the pathetic performances we've put in over the year, but we're still in it. One brilliant 90 minute burst, and we could be fronting up to our second Champions League final in five years. Wouldn't that be special? 

Anyway, we know the composition of the team; 4-5-1, Adebayor up front, a shockingly weak defence at the back, and square pegs in round holes in the midfield. But it'll work if we're up for it. And it's going to work. I get premonitions every now and then, and this is one of those time. We're down and out, and no one except Stan Collymore gives us a chance. And yet, we play our best in these circumstances. It liberates us. As Tyler Durden said, it's only when you've lost everything, that you're free to do anything. 

3-1 to the Arsenal.
