Just the FA Cup is not enough for Arsenal

Just the FA Cup is not enough for Arsenal

Arsenal won by Aaron Ramsey’s extra-time goal. They ended Arsenal’s nine-year loss. But if we talk about the class story, we can see Arsenal almost still standing still. Anh even when they have 2 consecutive years of owning the oldest trophy in this world. During this time, Arsenal from the second position in the Premier League has dropped to fourth.

After 11 seasons, Chelsea from a club 50 years unknown to the throne of English football, has 4 times crowned. And they even won one Champions League title, one Europa League championship. Just over half a decade, Man City also twice had the honor of standing on the top of the Premier League. And Arsenal, that is by the other way.

During the last 10 Premier League seasons, the Gunners have never been in the Top 2. In those 10 seasons, Arsenal has never been considered a real candidate for the Premier League throne.

That’s what Arsene Wenger needs to think about. Arsenal could not be satisfied with just picking up the FA Cup, though it was of course still considered a title.

Why should Arsenal not be happy with the FA Cup championship? Both articles are directed to a goal called aspiration. Arsenal has never been a weak club. At any given moment, they have superstars who can shake the Premier League. But it seems that the lack of desire to fight has dragged the Gunners down in the deciding races.

It’s been a long time, Arsene Wenger has a new and potential player of the present. Hopefully, compared to the FA Cup throne last season, Arsenal will not consider the FA Cup championship a liberating title. It should only be considered a spiritual lever, a catalyst for Arsenal to seriously return to the goal of conquering the Premier League.

The highlights Man United 2-0 Brighton Into the FA Cup semi-final

The win over Brighton is enough for Jose Mourinho to reassure United fans. And he did this even though MU’s gameplay has not really prospered. In fact, Jose Mourinho’s students entered the determination and repeatedly cornered the opponent in the first 30 minutes of the first half.

However, after Lukaku’s goal, they fell back and took the initiative. He gave way to the opponent. It took until 87 minutes for Matic to score the winner for Old Trafford.

The Portuguese tactician seemed to want to assert that he was always right. And his play will still be so before the scrutiny of the British media for him.


Quyết định đúng đắn nhất của ông lần này là việc sử dụng bộ đôi tiền vệ trung tâm Matic - McTominay.

The ineffective performance since joining Old Trafford is a condition for Sanchez to sit out in the match against Brighton. Obviously, Mourinho did that. He replaced Sanchez with Mata and MU had more sharp attack solutions.

Besides, Lukaku plays more and more progressive and is a rare bright spot in the Reds squad recently. The Belgian striker always played aggressively, enthusiastically and especially trying. Lukaku’s deadlock goal is very important in the context that MU is gradually going into an ineffective trail.

On the Matic side, the Serbian continued to show his bravery despite the home team losing the initiative to the opponent. Calm and precision of Matic is always necessary in the context that Mourinho needs a person to regulate the pace of the game.

The goals set to win 2-0 at 87 minutes by midfielder is the end of all efforts of Brighton. However, the face that Jose Mourinho teachers and students show is not enough to make the fans satisfied.

Obviously, the impression of the practicality that Mourinho brings is very bold through the direction of the players. They actively gave the game to the opponent at the beginning of the second half.

Mourinho and the days of teaching English football

Nobody thought about the tragedy for MU. Their opponent is Porto, defending champion UEFA Cup, but MU’s squad is simply stronger in every route.

The then 41-year-old military leader, Jose Mourinho, ran from the training area all the way to celebrate with the players. When the referee blew the final whistle, Mourinho ran again to celebrate, his hands raised his index finger triumphantly before entering the tunnel.

Mourinho has stepped into the world like that. After MU, the opponents that Porto defeated were the less traditional in the most prestigious arena in Europe. But if you know Deportivo has beaten AC Milan champions 4-0 at Riazor.

Mourinho’s future was already determined. It is the Premier League. Roman Abramovich with a bottomless wallet with Chelsea took Mourinho to Stamford Bridge. They want to overthrow the tournament dominated by MU and Arsenal.

Before long, England was only accustomed to ironic statements coming from a single name: Sir Alex Ferguson. But in terms of blood and nosy, Mourinho is completely superior. In terms of conservatism, English football always believes that it is the best in Europe and the competition here creates superiority. But Mourinho denied it all.

The difference in the tactical structure makes Chelsea almost destroy the whole tournament in strength. One of Chelsea’s most memorable matches was the victory against MU at Old Trafford in round 33. Mourinho’s starting line-up with Glen Johnson kicked the right striker.

Van Nistelrooy put MU ahead, but three goals from Tiago, Gudjohnsen and Joe Cole helped Chelsea win 3-1. MU then completely helpless before Chelsea.

At the end of the season, Chelsea lost 1 match, won the championship with 95 points and only 15 goals lost. That score was later only Pep Guardiola’s Man City fell, and the record for the number of goals conceded still stands.

The second season at Chelsea, Mourinho lost more but still champion with style unmistakable. MU once again became a painful victim of the Blues. Chelsea then hosted a direct competitor to the championship at home. MU must win if they want to maintain hope but what they get is a 3-3 defeat.
