Sing Up Gooners

Sing Up Gooners

In his BBC.com column, Phil McNulty said the Champions League was the only one big gap in Arsene Wenger's CV and Arsenal's rich history. An infinite number of journalists, pundits and Gooners have said so.

In a pre-match interview, Theo Walcott said 'Man United is the biggest game of our careers.'

On his facebook page, a certain Gooner said he never prayed but he'd be on his knees come Tuesday night.

On Arsenal.com, the club is urging all home fans to wave the 60,000 specially designed flags (well maybe not all of those 60,000 will get waved for obvious reasons), to 'wear red on the night and to make as much noise as possible to support the team throughout this huge evening.'

Everyone and everything is pointing to this game as the biggest clash in our season. Regardless of the result, one thing that we have to do as a club is that we do ourselves justice with absolutely no regrets.

If we urge the team to do ourselves justice by putting on a great performance, so should we. Thousands and thousands of people like me can't be at the Emirates and - just like the various Gooners watching the Anfield game in their homes in 1989 portrayed in the Fever Pitch movie - will be jumping up and down at home, biting nails, screaming and praying, no matter what the hour in our respective part of the world. We're all jealous of the lucky fellows who're gearing up for this special European night. And to these guys, I have a favour to ask: enjoy the game and sing your lungs out for all of us!

Well said Lou - I'll be there and will sing myself hoarse! PS - which Gooner will be praying? I also don't look for divine help normally but may have to make an exception this time!

Well I do realise it's a 'nothing' article. Don't boo me. The regular match-going Gooners wouldn't understand how we're feeling prior to a big clash like this when we can't do anything other than sitting there watching at home the feeling that we can't do anything to help the team (well apart from contributing to the club's TV revenue). We need you guys to do the singing for us!

Last I checked, we have already taken Utd. 2-0 all the way til the 90th minute at the Grove this year... no reason to believe we can't hold a 2 goal advantage tomorrow night!

I will be fully vocal through out. Although usually not a lot of noise is made at our home games, when it comes to playing Spurs, Chelsea & Man United or a big European game we show we are capable of making alot of noise. Tommorow we will be the 12th man and hopefully this will be the difference needed to send us through

It's gonna be rocking tomorrow, unless United score first then the atmosphere will probably die. Can't say I like the Red Flag idea, it's a bit too Chelsea for me, I'd like to be able to wear red too but I've gotta go to the game straight from work and I don't think my manager would take kindly to me coming in dressed like Santa! Oh and, look no further for the praying atheist!
