BLADES, WI­GAN CAN STILL DREAM

The Football League Paper - - NEIL WARNOCK -

I’M sure most people are ex­pect­ing an Ar­se­nal v Hull FA Cup Fi­nal. But I don’t think ei­ther Sh­effield United or Wi­gan are go­ing to Wem­b­ley for a day out.

The pres­sure on Ar­se­nal is un­be­liev­able. They haven’t won a tro­phy for nigh on ten years and if they blow this chance, se­ri­ous ques­tions re­ally will be asked of Arsene Wenger and his play­ers.

They’ll start that game a bag of nerves while Wi­gan have noth­ing to lose. The Lat­ics are no mugs and hav­ing beaten Man City in the last round, Uwe Rosler’s pre-match team-talk writes it­self.

As for Sh­effield United, they might just find Hull play right into their hands. Nigel Clough keeps things very tight first half and Hull are a team who don’t score many goals. It’ll be a tac­ti­cal bat­tle and the longer Nigel can keep Hull out, the more ner­vous the Pre­mier League side will get.
