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.
