On the Recap: Midweek Review

Still cockily effective
Congratulations to the underdog of the season for defeating the crushed youngsters in Carling Cup; The Brums deserved it and it was an astonishing feel to most of their stars who are mostly experiencing victory for the first time in the cup final; 

Back to the drawing board eh Gunners?; I wonder why Wenger was too hard to accept that he needs world class keeper and centerbacks; Its even weird when your club has a lot of cash and you still reluctant to spend after six trophy barren years; The Arsenal trophy barren hype does not even compare to 42 years Brums last cup victory!;

He still has a chance for a treble and good luck on Champs League, FA & The League!; By the way, VPersie is confirmed out for the trip to Nou Camp, Nasri is fit, Fab may be rested for that fixture and their life are getting harder with FA replay with Leyton Orient to contend with and Sunderland at home on the weekend; The injury jinx keeps coming back for Arsenal;


Back to the premiership, Mark Hughes made a mockery of himself after reluctantly shakes Mancini's hand due to lack of eye contact; Mancini must be too embarrassed to see him after his 70 million pound strikeforce failed him; They can say goodbye to the title after the draw;

New look Hammers showed their spirit in dismantling King Kenny side; Hitszlperger long awaited debut proved a cracking one as his thunderbolts were kept on target throughout; But Suarez looked a real deal as his menacing skills were hard to handle if not for RGreen agility; Injury note to fantasy bargain MKelly;

Not much happened in the Brittania Stadium as the new Odemwingie-less defensive formation managed to draw the host; RDelap put the ball with his head from the corner and Vela scored in the final minutes for the second game running; The only controversy I knew from the game was Vela goal should not have stood due to the offside; Same old story when your team is not winning eh:D;

The new member of the premiership afro club

United were knocked down to earth after Lampard penalty assured Chelsea a comprehensive win after David Luiz equalised Rooney second goal of the week; And Torres was creepily anonymous (unmentioned at all) in the soccernet match report despite playing full time; I agree with soccernet that the true winner in this fixture is Arsenal; They will be one point adrift of United if they win their game in hand (away to Spurs);

Everton hard-fought Chelsea win that suggest they can go all the way to the FA Cup final was a false hope as they were beaten by Reading at home; Such a waste of effort and energy that rather too well replicates their inconsistency this season;

That makes their double for the upcoming gameweek confirmed and I wonder whether we should depend on the likes of Saha, Arteta, Bilyaletdinov and Beckford for inspiration; Two of their best players, Fellaini is out of the season and Cahill is still not fit; Maybe we should go for Brums then?; Stay tune for the weekly On the Forecast for the necessary arguments;D...
