CL Secured & Happy St Totteringham's Day

CL Secured & Happy St Totteringham's Day

As Blackpool secured a vital point in their hunt for survival against our North London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, so our beloved Arsenal secured yet another season of Champions League football, a whilst at the same time ushering another St Totteringhams day.

Our season may not have panned out the way the majority of the Arsenal faithful would have hoped, however considering a large portion of the footballing world predicted (yet again) that the mighty Gunners would finish outside the top four, with Tottenham taking our place, The Arsenal have indeed over-achieved, and Spurs fail miserably.

Of course we know we haven`t over-achieved, we`ve passed up two glorious opportunities for silverware, however despite the frustration that we`ve come so close yet so far, we managed to succeed to accomplish something that eighty eight other sets of fans in the country would give their right legs to achieve. At the same time out doing our neighbours for the 3 millionth season in a row.

And no matter how many people tell you that out doing your neighbours doesn`t really matter, we all know that really it feels pretty good.

All that leaves now is to take three points against the god awful Stoke tomorrow and the end of the season will be just a little bit more palatable.

Happy St Totteringham`s day to Gooners everywhere.

Watching Gomess run around his pen area chasing the ball like a big thick dog before giving the 2nd pen made me chuckle no end.

Seeing as Citeh lost and they only had Blackpool at home tihs adds a new dimension to the meaning of choking the chicken.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Because the road in question was white hart lane and it wanted to avoid the humiliation of having dropped two points at home to Blackpool.
