With about 30 minutes left of the final Arsenal home game, what had looked like being a great day for the Gunners was going pear shaped, as our north London rivals Tottenham had pulled a goal back away to Newcastle to make it 2-1, while Arsenal had failed to capitalise on a great early headed goal by Olivier Giroud and Aston Villa were threatening to equalise.
Fast forward a bit and the Emirates crowd were in raptures of delight as MIkel Arteta capped his last game as a Gunner with an injury time goal to add to Giroud’s well taken hat-trick after the news from Tyneside went from the sublime to the downright ridiculous as the spuds imploded and went down 5-1 to the relegated Magpies who played the last 25 minutes a man down.
So it is St. Totteringham’s day yet again and this is perhaps the sweetest as it looked so unlikely just a few weeks ago. As the Arsenal fans taunted, it’s happened again, it’s happened again, Tottenham Hotspur it’s happened again.
The game itself was pretty tame after a strong start from Arsenal but we came strong again at the end and with Newcastle doing us a huge favour, the fans went home happy and the Gunners secured second spot. Happy days Gooners.
