The Spanish midfield maestro Santi Cazorla is unlikely to be in the Arsenal team that starts the Capital One Cup quarter final tonight against Bradford, but if we get to the semi-final stage, the 27-year old could feature in the push to end the seven year trophy drought that has got Arsenal fans desperate for some silverware.
“Arsenal are a great club with an illustrious history, but because of certain circumstances, they’ve gone a few years without winning anything.
“The objective now is to obtain a piece of silverware so that the fans can enjoy the sensation of winning again.”
Arsenal are still in all competitions, with the first FA cup match against Swansea in January and the next stage of the Champions league in February and March next year. Realistically, we are out of the title race, but a cup win would give the players a taste of success and we have a great chance at this stage in the competition.
Cazorla is one of the few Arsenal players with medals to his name but, apart from an Intertoto cup with Villareal in 2004, they have been with the Spanish national side. He would love to help Arsenal win something this year, and his impact on the team has made it more likely.
Cazorla, thankfully, slotted straight into the side when he arrived, because we had no Diaby, Wilshere or Rosicky then. He is now getting used to playing with the players returning from injury and Arsenal’s midfield is looking world class again.
