Arsenal Qualify For Champions League

Arsenal have all but qualified for the Champions League after an entertaining draw at White Hart Lane and other results went their way.

Arsenal will continue the consistent run in the CL after a 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane and both Bolton and Everton lost their games today.

For Arsenal to fail to qualify would need to see them lose their last 3 games (Fulham & Chelsea at home and Pompey away) and either Bolton or Everton win their remaining games whilst closing a gap of 28 and 17 goals respectively.

Whilst nothing in football can be taken for granted, I will gladly resign from my post of Vital Arsenal editor and parade myself outside Ashburton Grove wearing a Spurs shirt exposing my shaved scrotum should we fail, I am that confident.

In a difficult first season at AG, riddled with injury and now a board room revolution to boot, I'm happy to see qualification wrapped up as quickly as possible, and while our season has been declared a poor one by our own high standards, I can guarantee 16 other PL teams would kill to be in our position.

Nice one lads.

LOL Rocky, no one wants to see your scrotum, shaved or otherwise :). I know this season has not been that good, but qualifying for the CL still shouldnt be front page news, IMO.
prits
I would rather see rocky's shaved balls than an Arsenal fan wearing a tottenscum shirt.

Man, going through what we have this season and coming out the otherside with our status in tact is no mean feat. The other thing I've noticed is that we seem to have shaken our "they dont like it physical" tag. As soon as we find our shooting boots we'll be worrying the leaders.
Rocky7
Plus Spurs were in a UEFA Cup spot for like 10 mins today. Its been a good day. Happy St Totteringham's day :)
gunnerkid107
Well OG, fortunately for you there is no way in this world that we will not qualify!
Rocky7
I never noticed that Kidder. As I typed the article Spurs were in 7th on that league table......How sweet would it be to see Reading in Europe over Spurs?!?! lol
Rocky7
Sweet indeed, Rocky, very very sweet :).
prits
Portsmouth and Reading are hovering around that final UEFA Cup spot, It would be so great if either Kanu, Campbell or Lauren score the goal which takes that final spot from spurs.
Professor Calculus
I would love Reading over totters but I somehow tolerate tots better than Bolton. but rocky, I need that beer right now to get that parade picture out of my mind -:) lol.
questforavalon
I hope we all never have to see that horrible sight.........Rocky wearing a Sp*rs jersey would be too much too to handle.
AB_Arsenal
happy st. totteringham's day, to all gooners eeeeeeeeverywhere... »»Arsene Knows««
Wingston75
What say we lose against Pompey on the last day of the season just for a laugh?!?
Rocky7
All but, it is never wise to tempt fate.....
col8
lol, just to annoy spurs...
gunner-minesh
We have been through a bit this season as Arsenal supporters. With the new stadium being enough pressure we have seen TH14, RVP11,FL8,WG10,EE27,TS7,AH13, all out wiht injuires for massive amounts of time. To top it all off the guy that was forward thinking enough to give Arsene Wenger a try walks out after talking to a yank behind the backs of the board. RED ARMY RED ARMY RED ARMY RED ARMY
gunnerb
Sweet! Now we can all enjoy the final games of the season! What a beautiful day!!!!
flv
Just saying to the wife flv that I can now relax for the rest of the season and not get too vocal (aside from when Cashley comes home)
Rocky7
Its a great day for all Gooners and especially ones from Bolton who can laugh at thier Bolton supporting mates (i laugh anyway) and say "Hahahaha"!!!
Goofle
Lets hope Cashley plays so we can throw abuse at him in plastic bottles!
Goofle
so Rocky are you going to the Grove for the chelsea game?
luckys_10
Afraid not Luckys, the little one could arrive any time around that game so I'm house bound for the rest of the season.
Rocky7
Well lets hope you beat Fulham and Pompey then!
merlin
Lads, with the recent morale boost (thank fergie) we really won't lose to you.And may i commit a deadly sin, i feel sympathy for your cause. So lose against uns, and win feck all else.

Pre-Cesc, I thought we were quite sloppy but everyone's performance changed after the boy came on. I've just read what blobby had to say about Arsenal on skysports - what a muppet. Does he not know what to make of his own team's finish product? Clearly blinded by his flab around the eyes. Oh Rocky, have you considered posting player ratings on here?
tikabooson
I doubt that we'll lose against your lot this time k-chel. After seeing your fans chucking celery at our players last time out, we've decided that we're gonna do the same to yours, only we're going to use hand grenades 8-)
flv
But you don't have a song about hand grenades. :-).
k_chelski
Saying that, we'd probably need a cluster bomb to damage a target as vast as Lampard heehee!
flv
can i also say, spurs may be 9th tomorrow should pompey win :) chelski think they have the title after fergie dropped 2 pts today, something tells me its not over by a long way.
PUREGOLD
we should throw vegetables at the chel$ki players,but keep them in the tin cans
fran merida
Was it me or was Baptista pathetic? He missed an open goal chance to make it 3-1.. I just hope we don't buy him! As for the season, it has been dissapointing and 4th is the least our team could have gotten.. they've done that.. I think we'll be fresher come next season and hopefully with the entire squad plus 2 good players.. we'll be in with a fighting chance to win the League.
arsenalrulz4ever
i echo the fresher bit, plus RVP & henry back will make a difference
PUREGOLD
Baptista has been told he is going back thats why his attitude from loving England has changed to hating it. I think he needs to get himself back to sevilla & maybe reinvent himself again. We all know that Aliadiere, Flamini, Baptista, Reyes & probably Lehmann are off in the summer & to replace those that kind man Edelman is going to give Wenger enough money to sign 1 player (undoubtedly a keeper). So next year I think we might see a couple of 15 year olds making debuts!!
Ashburton Gooner
3 keepers+Clichy, Traore, Eboue, Hoyte, Gilbert (?), Senderos, Djourou, Gallas, Toure, Gilberto, Cesc, Denilson, Song, Cesc, Diaby, Walcott, Rosicky, Hleb, Freddie (?), Henry, RvP, Ade, Bendtner, + a winger makes it a very apt 24+ man squad on a relatively low wage budget. I see only Traore and Bendtner coming through, perhaps O'Cearuill or Connolly featuring regularly in the CC along with Jay Simpson. And then maybe I have no clue.
G4L
Merida will come through in amongst that lot too G4L. Plus we'll be able to be have a look at Vela pretty soon too. Things are definately looking good for the future.
flv
Although last season qualifying for the Champs League on the final day, beating spurs was all done at highbury and was a bit of a fairy story ending, I prefer to be qualified with a few games to go. We might rest some of the older players and see the carling cup team out again. ***** myself if that happens and we beat CSKA London to fcku thier title up.
gunnerb
Lucky for us bolturd & everton suk.
