OK its happened. The Spud's have finally beaten us. It's only taken 21 games but I suppose the run had to end some day. Over the two legs of the Fizzy Pop Cup, the Spuds deserved to go through. It seemed to me the Spud players wanted it more. But then playing Arsenal is Tottenham's season. If they had a choice of just narrowly avoiding relegation and doing the double over Arsenal OR winning the league, they would choose the former every time.
You could see how much it meant to the Spud's players by the way they reacted at the final whistle. Admittedly it was the first time they had beaten us in 21 attempts and it was the Fizzy Pop Cup semi-final, but they were dancing around like they had won the damn thing! What they must remember is that they haven't won it yet, and if they fall flat on their faces in the final then all that dancing around will make them look pretty silly!
Let's get things in perspective here; Despite Spud's "Superb" victory, I'd still much rather be in Arsenal's position then the Spud's. We are second in the league on goal difference and fighting for the title. When was the last time Spurs challenged for the title? Or actually won the league? Was it 1961 or something like that? Also we have what they want so badly and have had for a long time. Champions League football. This was the year that they were going to take this away from us. Oh yeah? Don't think so!!
We have so much going for us, don't let this game get you too down. Remember the run had to end some time, OK not in the way it did but remember that Spud's will live off this for the rest of their lives. We have our titles and Cup history to remind them about. Not forgetting the future trophies that this young Arsenal side will bring. Trust me, these players will be stronger for this Cup run in the long run.
We have to face it, Spurs were better than us over the two legs. It hurts at the moment, but that pain will go away. This result will be irreverent at the end of the season when we are crowned Champions and the Spud's have been beaten in the final. Dont forget it took 21 games for them to beat us, dont forget we've done the double over them in the league this season,don't forget it took a Gooner for them to win their last Cup, and don't forget that they wont be in the Champions League again next season, unlike us.
So Spud's, gloat while you can. You know it won't last, when we are crowned Champions and have either the Champions League or FA Cup wrapped up. It won't mean a thing. Your'e eleventh in the league and exactly 27 points behind my dear club. You haven't won a trophie since 1999 and will proberly never see your side win the league in your lifetime again. So enjoy the Fizzy Pop Cup. It's about your level. Mickey Mouse.
Keep it Goonerish.
