    If Arsenal don't win the FA cup my trousers will get so wet.
    Don't be dumb man, like Hull aren't doing the same thing.

    I think it's going to be like the 2010 FA Cup final (which also happened after the end of the PL season), all the pundits were expecting Portsmouth to get humiliated weren't they? In the end they only lost 1-0
    We should've gone ahead just before Chelsea scored too, but Kevin Berk Boateng missed a penalty in his typical overly arrogant and elaborate way.

    Not that we had any claim to even get close to winning that tie, we we're pretty much humiliated in terms of actual play if I remember correctly. Not that you'd expect anything else against that Chelsea side.

    So what do you think, is the anniversary going to be a sign of old times coming back again or a sign of how far you've fallen?

    Lol they need a reason to hate. You should know this by now

    Even if we win, people will say "ah it's only the FA cup, you ain't won **** in 9 years, you're a small club, you don't know how to win big games, you won it via match fixing - YNWA, UTID" etc

    If we win the FA Cup people will you haven't won the PL for 10 years or ever the CL. Funny thing is, Liverpool fans will sing along as well.

    They've done alright the rest of the season. They both started in both our league games against you lot and we won both of those.
    In the first game I admit Arsenal were on another level and they could have scored more. It wasn't even a close contest and quality shone through.
    The second game (at the KC) Hull absolutely dominated the first 30 mins hitting the post and Szczesny made some incredible saves then your first goal (fantastic goal, great move) came out of nowhere. For the second there was a clear foul on Jelavic to give you the ball. Many games are decided on fine margins and despite the scoreline Hull showed that they CAN create chances and outplay Arsenal in periods. It just takes a little bit of luck to get a goal and then you never know. Also we had key injuries (as did you) in those games whereas now we are almost at full strength. I know we are not favourites but I genuinely believe that Hull will win it.
    I think it all depends on how much freedom Ramsey gets and which formation Brucey plays.

    I was not trying to debate whether Hull have any chance of winning or not, just that your opinion that Ozil and Cazorla are too lazy to play together as part of a balanced and strong team was based on nothing.

    I would have some what agreed with you however Jelavic and Long aren't playing so tides have changed massively

    Jelavic and Long don't have as big an impact as everyone seems to think. We have other players who can do similar things. Fryatt is clinical, his chance conversion rate is very impressive especially given how rarely he plays. Boyd and Aluko are both fast, versatile and can run in behind like Long and Boyd's work rate is very impressive. Jelavic and Long are good players by our standards but they are far from irreplaceable. Hull finished the season at the lowest position they had been all year, that shows he did fine before they both signed.
    We do have goals through the rest of the team (not many, but it only takes 1) and also Arsenal have no idea what they are coming up against, they are not prepared and I think we will surprise them.

    This is Wenger. Whilst I'm not 100% confident he'll get the tactics purely right, I'm sure he'll give you guys too much respect (relative to the actual stature of your club) and if we're under pressure it will be mainly due to that. I think if we get the first goal then the game is ours however I see it being a slow and painful game just like vs Wigan. I'm sure you guys will park bus and this will probably hurt us the most since we're lacking so much pace on the front. Whilst we might not excel on counter attack or through balls, I think we'll score through a set piece. We have enough creativity with Cazorla/Ozil (if on form) and Podolski offers some what of an anchor too.

    This is arguably our strongest line up (unless you want to replace Poldi for Walcott) so I can't see too many defensive errors. Sagna/Merte/Koscielny/Gibbs combo has always been solid so I don't see you guys breaking us down defensively unless you caught us on the counter attack, which I didn't see happening since Jelavic/Long won't be playing.

    I won't deny that you guys looked some what intimidating in the first 30, however you have to take into account our style and tempo in games through out the season. Generally we've pretty much always started off slow getting a feel for a game where as our real onslaught comes in the 2nd half

    It won't be an easy game, will just have to wait and see. You guys can keep your head held high if you lose, we can't!

    Big difference from Wigan and Hull this Saturday is that we have Ramsey. Wigan didn't have to contain him in the way Hull will need to.
