Nothing To Gain, Everything To Gain

Nothing To Gain, Everything To Gain

Ask any Arsenal fan this week, would you prefer 3 points against United and to win against Bolton next weekend or for the kids to beat sp*rs and the answer is fairly simple.

Now ask any sp*rs fan which they would prefer and they will be desperate to beat Arsenal in a competition that Wenger has always used to give the kids a game.

So now let`s look at Wednesday's first leg. The importance of the competition has slightly hotted up, for sp*rs fans anyway. But I do wonder why they are getting so worked up. After all its only our kids, who granted have played some great football and come away with some great results along the way to the semi final, but if the kids lose, well we won't be too disappointed, after all they are not our first team. sp*rs fans will be dancing in the street however, any sp*rs team that beats any arsenal team of any age is worth a celebration, they even watch the 6yr old league and go mental !

BUT! What would be the fallout if they lost to our young guns?

The disgrace of having a full strength team lose to a bunch of 18yr olds, would they call for Jol's head, they wouldn't even have enough time to replace the whole team as the transfer window would shut the next morning.

In the grand scheme of things, Arsenal can't lose this tie, where as sp*rs can't really win, after all it`s only our kids.
After their 6-3 mauling of Liverpool, their confidence will be high, I will watch and will them on, but unlike sp*rs fans, if they lost I will be able to smile and say they had a good run considering.

Nothing to lose, everything to gain for our promising kids.

Some of the fickle ****ers are calling for Jol's head already. Poor tactitian, GG in disguise, you name it they'll say it. The great white hope season seems to be well and truly back in the archives. Shame really, another false dawn. HAHAHAhAHAHA

You could tell by the anguished, pained look in the eyes PUREGOLD. A look that only nearly 50 years of mediocrity can give you.

A psychiatrist, who was just starting out, advertised his clinic as follows: "Satisfaction guaranteed or your mania back!" which is why spuds still exist. "I can't get no... satisfaction." Should be the spuds equivalent of "You'll never walk alone"

At the end of the day - Its 11 against 11 and they are wearing your shirt are they not? - And if you lot are to be believed, they are sure to become the cream of world football. The only thing they lack is experience, which (don't get me wrong) can be important. But skill is of much greater importance. Just think of the players who have played amazing football when first bursting on to the scene - Pele, Rooney, Owen and Messi to name a few. Havin said that i will be devstated if we lose to bunch of whippersnappers. lol

hey jacky your right they do wear the shirt and it is 11.v.11 but you forget, that these are our reserves, our kids.. if we lose we lose to your first XI, no shame in that, if you lose, well need i say more ? :P should be a good couple of games though, always nice to have a london derby in the semi's, and Wycombe in the final HAHA
