Nothing But Pride!
Forget Drogba's offside goal, forget the pain of Drogba's bullet header, forget the ugly scenes that saw three dismissed, forget the bottles that rained down on Cesc Fabregas as he prepared to take a corner. Forget everything.
Even after an arse-numbing 5 and a half hour journey, I still feel incredibly upbeat.
The performance of each and every Arsenal player was nothing short of heroic. An Arsenal midfield with an average age of 19 completely bossed the middle of park that they shared with Ballack, Lampard, Essien and Makelele.
The silky & stylish passing produced by Wenger's young guns was a sight to behold, and the fact these young un's put this performance in against the current premiership champions makes it all the more remarkable.
Anyone still believing that Arsenal are a team in decline needs to give their head a serious shake.
The dissection of all the major talking points will take place on the morrow, but for now this tiered and emotional Gooner will head for his bed feeling nothing but pride in what the Arsenal team have achieved.
