I'm Almost Relieved ...... Almost

I'm Almost Relieved ...... Almost

Whilst I'm absolutely devastated about the manner in which we ballsed up our title challenge, not to mention the fact that we lost to Spurs for the first time in 3 million years, I have to say I'm somewhat relieved.

Game after game, year after year, the longer the unbeaten run went on the harder these derby days became to stomach, to the point at which I no longer enjoy the matches, the mere thought of them make me feel physically sick.

I thought Tottenham were there for the taking tonight, they looked absolutely knackered after a punishing 120 minutes on a shitty Wembley pitch, we ran them ragged for a majority of the game, yet thanks to a wonder goal, brilliant defensive display and some epic stamina to battle through another 90 minutes they emerged victorious. They were more than deserving of their victory.

It's something akin to watching your beloved pet die, you know it's coming, and you know it's going to be painful, but part of you is just thankful that it's over.

So through gritted teeth and with a heavy heart, congratulations to Spurs for finally getting the win, we'll see you again next season.

Now I'm off to bury my head under a pillow and wait for it all to blow over.

Definitely a deserved win. We all knew this day would come. Unbeaten in 11 years is still quite an accomplishment.

Well Done Spurs fans, you've paid your dues and now you got the win. Enjoy it .... though I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that. I'm off to stick pins in my Manuel Almunia voodoo doll.

Yep they deserved it for the 2nd half performance. The 2nd goal killed us, id rather play a kid in their next year than see Silvestre anywhere near our club. Goal of the season and save of the season in the same game, RVP was unbeliveable given he's been out almost 6 months...without that injury we could still have lost this and been clear.

Well played to Sp*rs. The statistics later today will reveal Arsenal had greater possession, shots on goal as well as corners but it means nothing without conversion. Spurs showed greater desire and deserve the victory. It helped that Gomes had an outstanding day.

Well what can i say.......... over 10 years and they finally manage to beat us when half of our 1st team are out injured. I know,,, they are still ****e and next time its gonna take 15 years and more if we can keep a team for more than half the season. Enjoy it scum bags cos the next one is a long time in the waiting
