Arsenal Cup Glory Ambitions by K. McD
Let us just presume that Arsenal fail to make it back into the Champions League this season. That’s not really too far beyond the realms of reality of things, with the Manchester duo, along with London rivals Spurs and Chelsea all in contention for the top top four spots in the Premier League. There was the disappointing Capital One Cup exit against Bradford, which was at least a magnanimous move by the Gunners to promote some new interest in the League Cup. There was the FA Cup fifth round exit against Blackburn, which was, frankly disappointing. Forget the hammering in the first leg of the Champions League against Bayern Munich, that becomes totally irrelevant at the moment in Arsenal’s current standing. It has been the domestic cup exits that have been the biggest indication of the fading force of Arsenal.
