Arsenal were the first team this season to stop the German juggernaut that is Bayern Munich from winning. The fact that we won our Champions League clash with them was fantastic for many reasons, because it kept our hopes of qualifying alive, gave the team morale a huge boost and it might also have sowed a seed in the Bayern players’ confidence.
It might not, but they were held to a draw by Frankfurt in the Bundesliga this weekend and that could help the Gunners in the away tie this week. However, our north London rivals Tottenham were also pleased with Bayern´s draw, because it means that their record of winning the first 11 league games of a season, back in the mists of football history, still stands with Bayern only able to win the first 10.
So the Spuds’ official Twitter account thought they would be clever and troll the Bundesliga champions, as reported by Squawka.com.
They tweeted, “Unlucky at @eintracht_eng this evening! Looks like our record still stands, better luck next year! #COYS.”
There is a saying, though, that people who live in glass houses should not throw stones and the German club came up with a brilliant reply, reminding the spuds that their loss to Chelsea in the 2012 UCL final meant that despite finishing fourth in the EPL that season, they still had to make do with the Europa League the following year.
Bayern tweeted back, “@SpursOfficial Guess that’s karma for costing you a place in the Champions League 😉”
Nice one Bayern.
