Bayern Munich vs Arsenal pre-match
I have one word for this fixture: attack. Arsenal need three goals at least to advance. Additionally, the first Munich goal is almost meaningless. Both a 3-0 and a 3-1 score in Arsenal’s favor mean Arsenal wins the tie. Additionally, since no one experts Arsenal to advance, there is no pressure. Thus, Arsenal should attack with reckless abandon.
Wigan held on to beat Manchester City. I thought, when I saw the score at 70 minutes, that City would at the very least force a replay, which of course they would win.
I am also reminded of 2010-2011, in the League Cup, the night that West Ham beat Manchester United. That left the League Cup final four as Arsenal, Ipswich Town, West Ham, and Birmingham City. That tournament did not end well. In fact, that was Arsenal’s last trip to Wembeley.

Arsenal vs. Everton pre-match
The FA Cup quarter final is tomorrow. The FA Cup has become Arsenal’s best chance for silverware this season. A win tomorrow and Arsenal has a semi-final at Wembley. In my personal view of things, the FA Cup is now top priority. This has then become the most important match of the year, and the strongest 11 available should be on the pitch.
There is a lot that can be said about lineups and tactics, but only one thing matters tomorrow: If Arsenal play like they did against Munich before the sending off, they win. If Arsenal play like they did against Stoke, they lose. Given Arsenal’s recent history of performances when silverware is close, the Stoke performance (or the Liverpool performance) is much more likely. What is so disappointing is that I though Arsenal was over whatever it was that caused them to come up short when silverware was close (if Champions League qualification is on the line, they have been golden).
So here is a predictive congratulations to a Everton on their upcoming trip to Wembley for the semi-final.
