BLADES, WIGAN CAN STILL DREAM
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.
