WHAT A GAME!! “One of the greatest night’s in Arsenal’s history” and Builder Bloke was there with my son and his son. Even my daughter and I watched as they scored their second goal – such was the excitement coming from my youngest son who sat and watched it at home, looking for his brother in the crowd (well he did feature widely at the Darts night last week whilst wearing a Sylvester The Cat suit). Apparently the atmosphere was incredible – you couldn’t hear anything but immense cheers after that second goal.
Can they now complete victory at the Nou Camp on 8 March after coming from a goal down at the Emirates? It does at least give them a chance to go to Barcelona with belief.
Didn’t they do well? They didn’t give up the whole time – even I, who knows nothing about football could see that this was a show of moral and physical courage from the underdogs that just shouted that message we should all remember – “never give up”.
My daughter made some typical girly observations that were nothing to do with the football:-
1. Messi’s hair
2. People in the crowd
3. Why Arsenal seemed to have so much connection to arse’s and when asked to explain further she said:-
Arse – anal
Arse -ne Wenger
Arse – shaving
She does have a point
