Beyond Gooner's Expectations.

Beyond Gooner's Expectations.

Vital Arsenal asked it's reading public how they felt about the famous win in the Bernabeau, you have voted in your thousands, and results are in.

Arsenal, against all odds beat Real Madrid on their own turf last week, and we wanted to know how you felt about it.

The results show that most of you, feel exactly as I do, the win was beyond anything I thought could happen.

A massive 59% didn't think we'd get anything from the game and the result was beyond all expectation. However a miserable 18% of you thought we were only average, although that button was more than likely clicked by Spurs fans ;)

Results in full:-

*Average 18%
*Very Good 11%
*Awesome 12%
*Beyond All Expectation 59%




We will find out next week if the win will count for anything.

Dear simmy8_2000, Let us all keep a level head on this one. As much as I would like to be the first one out of the cheer block it just seems way too premature for me. We did indeed put in a good performance, but it was nowhere near what it has been made to be. What really surprises me is how quickly people have written us off for everything and are "shocked" that we can get a narrow 1-0 against a Real Madrim team in crisis. Real are currently losing to nearly everyone, and on the day they were atrocious. Ronaldo's performance almost made Pires look like Gattuso in terms of passion. Except Beckham and perhaps Gravesen, Real were pathetic. It beggard belief that a team of such class has sunk to this level. There must be something seriously wrong within the team structure and leadership. Arsenal played a good game. Freddie did what he used to do for us each night just two years ago, and Gilberto played well. Cesc displayed fantastic vision but also exployted the massive spaced allowed by a passive Real midfield. Other than that it is really the most hyped up match I have seen in a long time. Maybe it is because we are so longing for the turning point in this dire season. And how I wish it was the case. Still, I fear it is not. And I am not even taking the Blackburn defeat into account. It is purely based on what we played on the day. So the question remains, "why has everyone made us to be this awful team all of a sudden that should be extatic to win narrowly against a Real team in crisis?". We are better than that. And allowing ourselves to expect and hope for more does not make us Spurs fans or bad fans, we just demand from the team what we believe they possess in terms of talent and capacity. This is said with all optimism, but please do not lose your heads over this game, and definetly do not believe all the Nay Sayers ib the media trying to convince us that Arsenal are lucky or should be celebrating this win as if it was the biggest shock of the season. Crap, we are still a great side, and once Henry leaves and takes his "I will sign when you can convince ME that I need to stay", then locker room balance will be restored and we will all play for the cause of the team and not our Nike sponsorship and our attempt to win the "nicest guy in the world" trophy. With football optimism Gus J.
