We want that experience again - Faye
 Women's Football News 14 Mar 2008
We want that experience again - Faye - 14 Mar 2008 - Women's Football NewsArsenal are one step away from another appearance in the F.A.Women's Cup Final - and they are determined to repeat their experiences of last year's victory over Charlton Athletic.
The Gunners won 4-1 in front of a record crowd in excess of 25,000 at the City Ground, Nottingham, and captain Faye White told Women's Soccer Scene that they are aiming for a return trip. "It was a fantastic day and we want to be there again," she said. "We did well against Charlton and we want to have that experience again, and going back to the same venue is a great incentive for us."
Standing in Arsenal's way are Northern Division promotion challengers Lincoln City and Faye revealed her side's respect for their opponents. "We have to get past Lincoln first," she said. "Lincoln are going to be up for it and they have done well in the Cup, beating Blackburn in the last round which was a very good win.
"They are also doing very well in the league and are an ambitious club looking to go forward, with good players like Kay Hawke in their squad. They'll be looking for a big crowd and will be playing on a nice ground, so hopefully it will be a good game."
Arsenal will be going into the game in the unusual position of coming off a recent defeat, to Everton in the Premier League Cup Final. "We had been on a massive unbeaten run and it gives people more determination to try and end it," she said. "It was only one game and hopefully we'll get back on track again.
"Having the taste of defeat, it doesn't feel good and we're not used to it. It was always going to happen but we'll make sure we get back on course and we responded well in our next game (beating Leeds 4-0)."
Arsenal had been involved in a number of tight matches before the Everton game and, after the majority of their squad were involved in the World Cup, players began to look jaded but Faye does not see this as a problem. "Being a top club, you do play a few more games and that's the way we want it. We still have two trophies to play for - by our standards we wanted them all but the League and Cup are the two big ones. We are still unbeaten in the league and we want to be in Europe again.
"We had a tight game against Everton in the league and there is no doubt the level is rising. This season, other teams have played differently against us and kept things tighter so we have had to adapt our game.
"It has been a strange season and it has taken players time to adjust from the World Cup."
For Faye, it has been a busy season after missing virtually all of last season when recuperating from her knee ligament injury. "I just wanted to get back playing," she admits. "It wasn't easy watching last season, especially when the team was doing so well, and now I want to be a part of winning things again."
