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!
