Are You Watchin Tottenham?

Are You Watchin Tottenham?

If Tottenham do perform the unthinkable and finish above us, these are the sort of games they will have to be able to play in. Ask yourselve's this Spurs fans, you may be on a good run this season, and you may be above Arsenal (for now) but do you honestly think you could face a team like Real Madrid and pull off what the mighty Gunners did last night??

I will grudgingly admit that Tottenham are a vastly improved side this season and are heading in the right direction, but they are nowhere near to being in the same league as Arsenal. We have had a very bad year, suffered a crisis of confidence and had the worst injury list in living memory, yet it is still in our hands to qualify for the 4th spot.

Arsenal's record breaking victory in Madrid was something to behold, something special, and something that could finally kick start our season.

Last night one of my best nights as a Gooner, and there has been some good ones, but without actually winning anything, this is the best feeling I have EVER had.

People may think I'm exagerating, but I'm not, when Henry scored the goal, I almost cried, I mean really, the feeling I felt at that moment is only rivaled by the way I felt on my wedding day, and still that was frigging close.

Never before have Arsenal been such underdogs, people just laughing at us and our chances of getting anything less than hammered, I took so much stick before the game it's unreal, but rest assured I cast aside the rules at my work that demand I wear a uniform to don my brightest Arsenal shirt and scarf, and those p**s takers were made tp regret the day they picked on the only Gooner in the place.

The entier team played out of their skin, pace movement, invention, and most of all, belief. Belief in themselves, belief that they could do what no other English team had done, and win at the Bernabeau. And they did, in a fashion that no-one expected.

In a match where the referee was an absolute disgrrace, the players kept their cool, and passed the ball around like they were playing Bradford City. The disgusting performance by ITV's people at the begining of the feature was completely wiped from the face of the planet with a display that will live in the memory of every Gooner who witness this, our greatest European victory, for the rest of their lives.

Even though the performance was one to remember, ITV still disrespected the rest of our battling heroes at the end of the programme by saying 'One man over came the Galactico's', this performance was one of players with desire, one of youngmen who played beyond their years, and one that deserves every plaudit thrown at it.

I will not do our players the disservice of giving them ratings, because each and everyone of our lads performed above and beyond anything I expected, and I think I speak for everyone when I say, it's times like this, that make me so so proud to be a Gooner.

Thank you Mr Wenger for one of the great performances of alltime.

I would have to agree with the above. Madrid were crap last night. yeah great for winning etc but if you think its in the bag, think again. There is not a hope on this planet that madrid would be capable of winning the thing. Shaky at the back, aging in midfield and have a brazilian puffa fish upfront! Theres others that you need to worry about mate. Barca, Chelsea, Liverpool, Ac Milan, Juve. Gonna be one of them. Arsenal havent a chance!

Madrid were crap? or made to look crap by an outstanding Arsenal? At no point does it say anything about winning the Champion's League, or even getting beyond this round. We're just feeling proud of a massive victory, and pointing out that getting in the Champions League place is one thing, but as has been proved by Arsenal, it's much more difficult to progress. We may not win the thing, but should Spurs get to the group stages, they would go no further. Up The Gunners.
