Timely warning against Leeds

Unlike the negative, dull performance of Manchester City, Leeds came to The Emirates eager to show what they can do and nearly knocked us out of the FA Cup. The much changed Arsenal side didn't really perform to the level expected and it took Cesc coming off the bench to earn us a replay and a further game in the already congested fixture list. Not what we wanted, but we managed to get out of jail and it serves as a timely warning.

Our next game is the Carling Cup semi final away leg at Ipswich Town. To me, this must be a short term priority, as we have a very realistic chance to win the cup within three games. While not the most glorious of competitions, it is crucial as it would end the much talked about trophy drought and focus the team on the bigger ones this season. The transfer window has opened with the usual doses of media transfer news and rumours but if we have learnt anything following Arsenal through the Wenger years, it is that it is virtually all rubbish.
