Fair play to Didier Drogba who, even after leaving Chelsea, still has what it takes to rile up Arsenal fans. As Gunners supporters celebrated their come-from-behind win vs. Manchester City, which sets up an FA Cup final with their London rivals from Stamford Bridge, the man who so often scored against Arsene Wenger's side took to Twitter:
LONDON -- Three quick thoughts on Arsenal 2-1 Manchester City in the FA Cup semifinals at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.
1. Arsenal delight as Manchester City fall short
This 2-1 FA Cup semifinal win over Manchester City was as uncharacteristic a performance as any during Arsene Wenger's 21 years at Arsenal.
Wenger rolled the dice by playing three centre-backs and attempted to soak up pressure from City's quicksilver forwards. In the end, after extra time, his ploy worked. It means Pep Guardiola...

"It's true we have kings, lords and different titles for people in the dressing room," Rosenborg...
As well as Premier League action, there's two huge FA Cup semifinals this weekend as Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea eye the final.
Elsewhere, the fight for the top four intensifies as Manchester United face a tricky trip to Burnley while Liverpool host Crystal Palace.

CHELSEA: After the meek defeat to Manchester United last Sunday, Chelsea could not meet a rampant Spurs side at a worse time. But Antonio Conte's side have reacted well...
Arsenal's twin fates this summer at least have one unifying feature: the need for a happy ending to the season. Whether Arsene Wenger ultimately decides to stay or go, Arsenal require some element of redemption to make the situation at all palatable.
If Wenger does depart, it will hardly be fitting for one of the great modern managerial reigns if he leaves via the back door with his life's work in ruins, driven out by supporter insurrection. If he does sign a new contract, Arsenal need a good...
