Anybody nervous about tonight?
Well considering the readership of this site is made up of both Arsenal & Spurs fans (amongst others) that answer will probably be mixed, however, considering the URL of this website, I'd assume that the majority of supporters will be relaxed.
As has been stated by members of the Tottenham team and staff, this is the Lily-whites biggest game of the season so far (and barring a trip to the final, it will be the biggest of the season altogether). Indeed a quick trip to our sister site at Vital Spurs will see more than a hundred orders for rubber underwear with every member, to a man (or woman) literally copying Tottenham's last day of the season antics of 2006.
Arsenal however have already played several more important games this season. Liverpool away, Chelsea & Man Utd at home, even the games against Tottenham in the league were far more important than tonight's fixture, and there are definitely more important (and exciting) fixtures to come, AC Milan anyone?
Of course it would be a disappointment to lose this semi-final second leg, there's little point in denying that, however would the disappointment be not getting to the final? Or missing out on another reason to taunt the old enemy?
For me, this young team has once again shown it's quality, for the fourth time in five years Arsene's policy of blooding young players in this competition has rewarded the Frenchman with a semi-final spot. It's not about winning the competition (which is however Arsene's goal) it's about preparing these young men for the rough and tumble of professional football. Some of them won't make it with Arsenal of course, but some of them definitely will.
When you compare this policy with Tottenham's desperation to not only beat Arsenal, but to pop a piece of silverware in their rather sparse trophy cupboard, no matter what it is (no the Peace Cup doesn't count lads), then it's safe to say that the pressure is definitely on Spurs!!!
