Game Over

Game Over

Our title challenge came to abrupt end today as Arsenal fell 2-1 away at Stamford Bridge.

Despite taking the lead, Chelsea clawed back to take the spoils and effectively put an end to any hopes of regaining the PL title (cheers lino!!).

The Gunners would need a small miracle for them to be crowned champions and I just don't see that happening.

However, don't be downbeat, we may be out of the title race, but the boys have done us proud. No doubt over the next few days our site will be full to the brim of extreme witless twats telling us that the wheels have come off and that we are starting to crumble, but if everyone is to be believed ..... we didn't have any wheels in the first place.

Look upon this season not as another time the Gunners had it in their grasp and threw it away, but that we may use it as a stepping stone to bigger and brighter things. After all, weren't we supposed to finish outside the top four this season?

I bet if anyone told us that with 8 games to go we would still have been fighting for the title and in the quarter finals of the Champions League having dispatched AC Milan with a 2-0 victory at the San Siro we'd have laughed our bollocks off. After all, there are 89 other teams in England who would kill to be in our position.

So don't feel down Gooners, feel proud, proud that we are on the rocky road back to the pinnacle of English football, and with a couple of shrewd signings in the summers, we can go at it again next season.

Plus we've still got the Champions League to fight for ;)

I honestly thought we were the better team, I think we blew the title last week but it doesn't bother me. I'm confident this is our year in Europe, I can just feel it, if not, who cares? We've got time on our side, and next year, I guarentee we'll be even better. Up The Arse!

not here to gloat but simply to thank your lot for playing your part in a fantastic game and a game that was played in the right spirit! I have a feeling our paths will cross in the CL semi-final - two mouth watering games, what a prospect! Although if they mirror the PL games you'd be through on away goals :-(

You just had more up front today Merlin. Drogba was very strong for you, and your lino played his part too ..... lol ..... I'm not bitter, honest guv!!!

Rocky i dont like this article. do you think Arsene or any team member thinks it is game over? no way. there is still a long lon way to go and a lot can change in a week. sure things have become really difficult now, but hey which other team can drop 11 points in 5 games after 25 league gamesand still be in the title race? i cant remember any since i've started watching football. when we *****ed it up in 89 with a few games to go, did graham and his men give up? i don't think so. so forget about next year or any new signings, we have a double to win and lets give arsene and the lads all the support we can in helping them achieve it..

Luckys has a point, although I agree that we've blown it, anything can happen in football. A month ago, we were 5 points clear at the top, now, we're sitting in 3rd, 6 points off the pace. Why can't it change again?
23/03/2008 19:59:00
Hope not merlin. And yes, it surely was a fantastic game tonight. super_gooner, sorry mate, but you cant come celebrating at Vital Chelsea today like you said =P Great stuff.
23/03/2008 19:59:00
I've been over and made my points, raaid, I need you to back me up, not getting the loving support you said your members would give!
23/03/2008 20:04:00
I admire your spirit luckys!! But I just can not see it happening. For us to win the title man Utd have to at least lose 2 games and draw another for us to win it ..... and if one of those games they lose is to Chelsea, then we need them to slip up too. It's not gunna happen I'm afraid!
23/03/2008 20:04:00
we have seen stranger things happen in this league Rocky. i believe in Arsene, and if he believes we can still win it, then we will..
23/03/2008 20:06:00
how i wish Reyes was still here. add him to this team and he could have made such a difference to our season with injuries to key players. shame he didn't like the weather, cuz he is getting wasted at athletico..
