Victoria Concordia Crescit

If Arsenal don't get to the FA Cup Final this year and stake a claim on a record breaking 13th victory it won't be for the want of trying or the draw.

Preston North End from the Championship - level 2 in the pyramid
Southampton from the Premier League - level 1 in the pyramid
Sutton United from the Natinal League - level 5 in the pyramid

All defeated, and all away from home on the opponents grounds. All beaten with various amounts of difficulty and the usual heart stopping moments for us paid up members at Arsenal FC.

Next on the horizon are giant killers Lincoln City. Currently the runaway leaders of the National League (5th tier of the English pyramid) and already the giant killers of three Premier League clubs.  

At least we are at home. Day and date to be decided after TV divvy up the Quarter Final (Last 8 left in it) games.
