If Arsenal fans thought it felt bad getting thrashed by Chelsea on Thursday night they will feel a whole lot worse if Tottenham lifts the Champions League trophy.
Losing against Chelsea and missing out on Champions League football is a short term situation, it may take one year, five years or however long for us to get back to the top table but eventually, we will get there. But, we will never ever live down Spurs winning the Champions League, that will be there for an eternity and boy will they let us know.
We had better get prepared for the worst because while I think Liverpool will win nothing is certain.
Spurs have gone on about beating us to the double and that was 58 years ago, they go on about beating us to a European trophy and that was 56 years ago, just try telling them about how many doubles we have won and about the invincibles, watch how quick they come back with what they achieved in the early ’60s.
At this moment we do have the upper hand because of the number of trophies we have won and because of that invincible season and let’s not forget winning the title TWICE at White Hart Lane but that will all take a back seat to them winning the Champions League.
They will even have a solid argument that they would be a bigger club in the event they beat Liverpool tonight.
It just cannot be allowed to happen.
Life will be miserable if they win and that is why I will be supporting Liverpool with every ounce of passion this evening, in fact, I will be supporting them as much as if it was Arsenal playing a game.
I will be sick to my stomach if Spurs win, I cannot describe the feeling of utter despondency that will sweep over me.
In 30 years they will still be rubbing our noses in it, our unborn grandkids will suffer taunts I shit you not.
God, I cannot reiterate enough how much I want Liverpool to win.
And I know I am not alone, I know every single Arsenal fan feels exactly the same.
RIP Jose Antonio Reyes ?
Sad news. Just heard. Football is just football…win lose or draw.
Good player for us and went on and won things. Was still playing… ?
Very, very sad still so young ? remember him fondly for those goals against Chelsea. Absolutely mate ?
Is this even true though? We all know how much fake news in on the net! Seen nothing on mainstream news about it so far. Hope he is well and alive, even though I thought him a waste of space when he played and way overhyped as such.
It’s true he’s dead! Aged 35
Wow Jon-you are all heart PAL
Phil when I wrote that post I did not truly believe he had died. We all know that fake news is everywhere on line. It was only later, when the BBC news sadly announced it that I knew. He was a fine man and a talented player even though I was not his greatest fan. Rather like Ozil, in that he is also a fine and decent human but not a player I will miss at all.
Yeah I get that Jon-For someone never short of an opinion you also have a side that separates football from real life.Not ever my favourite either but he never fulfilled his early potential which like many other ex players often means we tend to discard them too easily.
The tributes from his former team mates was so typical of them and the one from Cesc was really from the heart.Brings home just how lucky we all are we should be grateful for this.
Good comments Phil. My love for the whole truth and in context too is what makes me write what I truly think. I don’t indulge in half truths and fake modesty and ingratiating myself as some much younger fans do . If it make me unpopular, so what. Truth is paramount now and always. All deaths to all humans are sad and regrettable and this is true of JAR . But to pretend he was a player I rated is not true, so I do not say it. He never remotely fulfilled his potential nor the hype that, through no fault of his, preceded his transfer to us.
No. I want Tottenham to win. I hate Liverpool
Quite the opposite. The the which will play well will deserve the win and that includes Spurs. As much as I dislike them, they have given their all to deserve the trophy.
Furthermore, a spurs win is the loudest wake-up call at how low Arsenal has fallen.
May the best team win tonight!
OT – Apparently our transfer budget is 40 million. But can someone tell me what happened to the 60 million from Adidas deal.
It’s gone to Ozil.
And so it should do-he sells more shirts than anyone else put together so it’s only right.That puts him on £1m plus per week and as far as I’m concerned he deserves every single penny.
If you want Spuds to win, you aren’t much of an Arsenal fan.
I’ll be devastated to see Spuds winning CL
I want Liverpool to WIN
I HATE SPURS
Hell, the shield on this website has spuds (potatoes) with a red line through it.
I’ve always liked Liverpool. They have loyal and fun fans. They sing even when they’re losing. I like them more than Spuds, United, Chelsea and City
Also Klopp seems like a nice guy too
COME ON LIVERPOOL. Defeat our bitter and local rivals
Well, I am going to be different and want Spuds to win. And YES OF COURSE THAT IS A LIE!!! COME ON LIVERPOOL!!!!!!!
In case anyone still wonders, in 1961 I walked down Spuds High St on Cup Final morning holding a pathetic home made banner which said “Come on Leicester”. No hooligans to be afraid of back then either. Bl…y Spuds beat them 2-0 in the final and ruined my young life for a period. I was also at WHL in 1962 when Benfica knocked Spuds out of the old European Cup Semi Final 2nd leg and was about the only English voice cheering in a silent Spuds crowd. Payback time and I have liked Benfica ever since, just for doing that. True rivalry runs mighty deep!
For the old man called jon fox: hope we get better perspective generally from your comments henceforth
Thierry Henry: Controversial Twitter thread exposing ‘most overrated striker in history’ goes viral
The former Arsenal and Barcelona striker had a glittering career, including a World Cup winners’ medal but this is not enough in one Twitter user’s eyes
By Jackson Cole
21st May 2019, 5:14 pm
Thierry Henry had an extraordinary career, making it to the top of football on numerous occasions.
Giroud opened for Chelsea in 2019 Europa Final, made a penalty scored, made an assist for the fourth goal. Saw how efficient some Arsenal fans’ lamppost striker, Giroud, could be.
Visit the twitter acc ;
Jacques Mesrine @Hustler_Futbol
Henry played in 9 cup finals, scored 0 goals. Drogba played in 10 cup finals. Scored 10 goals. Henry was notoriously terrible in big games. You can’t be “great” and not be clutch. You can’t think of any player in any sport that isn’t clutch but is great.
Origi has more goals in cup finals than Thierry Henry
Goals in Champions League semi finals + final. Thierry Henry: 1 Divock Origi: 2. Henry was so overrated
What has all this to do with me? I would really like to know what exactly you wish from me. I will always try to help if I can though and my opinion , in common with all true Gooners, is that Henry was an extraordinary genius of a striker and a fine human being too. Don’t know if that helps but I hope so. Clubs do not erect statues to “frauds” and anyone who thinks him a fraud must have real problems mentally.
Sod the lot of them… can’t stand any of them.. just imagine all of those pearly whites on show tonight, Salah celebrating like a stupid flamingo… Klopp punching the air at every available opportunity,.. and then there’s the spuds… Alli, with that face I just want to punch… same with Kane, oh man I can’t stand any of them! If I had my way, neither of them would be in the final or win it…
It’s a lose-lose situation for me… absolutely devastated at whoever wins, but if push comes to shove, I’ll have to go with Liverpool, not that I’ll be supporting them, not even gonna watch it.. just pray to God it’s over soon… and brace myself for the fact that I’ll have to hear about it daily, for the next 50 years, at least
Shocking news a about Reyes Sue
Yes kev82, May his soul rest in peace
Absolutely Pat ? so sad ?
Sue ????????. Ali with that face I want to ?. Sue you are too hilarious.
50 years Sue ? You’ll be well over a hundred then ? joking Sue ?
Hahaha!! I thought 50 sounded better, ok, ok you don’t have to rub it in!! ?? as soon as I pressed post comment, I was just waiting for this sort of comment….. ? hehe… you’re becoming awfully predictable, Kevin ?????
Also, yes that was shocking news, gutted, poor sod. Can this week get any worse? Actually don’t answer that ?
Mr predictable eh ? haha well it’s better to have a sense of humour than none at all right Suzanne ??? how’s Coco these days ? Did she watch the Europa League final ?
Oh for sure, Kevin & that humour of yours is pretty impressive, bring it on, I say.. I can handle it ? especially at my age (thought I’d get that in there before you!!)
She’s good thanks, well she made it up until Giroud scored, then I didn’t see her for the rest of the night ????
Haha at least your eyesight hasn’t gone yet ? ? must of knew to get offside when that goal went in Sue ?? I turned the game over at 3-0 could not watch anymore of that humiliation ?
Well you lasted longer than me, Kev… 2-0 I was done…..could watch no more… we made them look so good & not being funny, they’re pretty average too…. shambles….
Haha poor Coco, she was cowering in the corner.. she’s glad the season’s over too!!
I should have done the same Sue even at 1-0 it felt like it was over ? because the reality was we had to chase a goal with a dodgy defence and we were always gonna concede another! Yep I totally agree a really average Chelsea team and I check my phone 3-1 now thinking at least score another make it look closer goal flash 4-1 felt my blood boil ? haha watching her owner have a meltdown ?
Oli scoring was a killer, Kev… poor Coco ??
So, Aladdin it is ?
Is she named after Chanel ? ? Hate him now ? you better get your skates on then Sue ?I’m gonna tidy up and then settle down to watch the game I’m looking forward to it haha ?
Haha no she isn’t! Took ages for the kids to come up with that name!!
Yes I must admit I don’t think very highly of him anymore ?
Well I hope you enjoy it ? I got a new phone earlier.. new emojis!!!
Come on Liv…… nah!!! ?
Aww that’s nice ? haha once he pulled on that blue shirt he was nobody to me I despise Chelsea ? great Sue what is it Android or iPhone ? I’m gonna relax enjoy it while tott and liv fans have palpitations ?
I do agree… it’s horrible seeing him in that blue.. he’ll be a dirty, cheating sod before you know it!
It’s an android.. took ages swapping it all over ? then to put my “ooh to be a gooner” case on ??
My girl’s let me down, no cinema now.. so will have to binge Good Girls season 2 ?
Oh sorry to hear that Sue you were probably looking forward to it ? Samsung Huawei ? Haha you got an Arsenal case ? haha he’ll learn the Chelsea way ? well Kane starts tonight.. Moura gets them there and he’s dropped ?
It’s a Samsung…always have an Arsenal case ?? one that clips on the back.. don’t like the cases you open ?
I started watching Good Girls last night.. 9 episodes to go!!
Bet Moura’s gutted then… but of course the MBE has to start ?
I have a Huawei and I love it I’ve had Samsung I’ve had iPhone didn’t like either ? is that the ones that look like a book ? ? I’ve never heard of it is it one of those chick flick TV shows ? Sue tott win tonight Mr Kane will go from MBE to KBE ?
2 of my kids have Huawei.. mine is as big! Yes like a book – horrible!!
Yes but mix in some drugs, money laundering.. it’s brilliant!!
Oh can you imagine it… they’d all be crying (Kane’s mouth will never shut) urgh… Klopp’s teeth… oh Kev it’s going to be horrible, just horrible….
How many kids have you got Sue ? Huawei fans ? no so chick flicky then ??? haha Klopps veneers aren’t as white as Firminhos ? well Sue it’s almost kick off ?
4.. 2 of each.. in other words, you mean it’s time for me to go into a deep hibernation! ?
Haha pool are winning a pen after a minute but was never a pen ? it’s kinda scrappy so far Sue ? 4… 1 is a handful lol ?
Well that just goes to show some teams get all the luck.. how many pens a season are Liverpool awarded?? Sheesh!! As jammy as ever!!
Ha, tell me about it ??
Haha Sue if you blink at a Liverpool player your guaranteed a pen against you ? I think Liverpool has this ? how’s the TV show Sue ?
Too right, Kev! It’s alright not as good as season 1 though
Sue this is an awful game ? not as good as cobra Kai then ? at least there’s boxing later ?
Yes onto the boxing, Kev ? thank god that’s over with ?
I’m jealous Sue I want that trophy so bad ? why can’t we win it or any European trophies ?
We ain’t getting our hands on that in a long time, Kev… depressing, but true
I know we’ll probably never see it! Jurgen klopp has got to more champions League finals with Liverpool alone than Wenger in just a few years and won one we should have got shot of him years ago instead we were celebrating fa cups and no leagues in well over a decade! Our club is poorly run its disgusting I feel like crying ?
I ain’t dehydrating myself anymore, Kev… ? and I suggest you do the same too!!
We’ll leave that to Kane & co… I hear they’ve been blubbering..oh my heart bleeds ?
You on the boilermakers tonight Sue ? haha well there’s light at the end of the tunnel! Kane was shocking but I think he’s getting a Liverpool kit on to loft the trophy for a few selfies ?
He’s such a spaz!! ?
So that’s the football done then domestically I’m guessing you’ll be back in August then Sue ?
On here or at the Emirates? Well.. I’ll always check in on here every day, as you know, that’s just the norm ? and yes I’ll go in August, as there’s usually a game on or around my son’s birthday.. but we may go to the Emirates cup.. think the anger will have subsided by then ? how about you? Break from JA?? Emirates? I think I already know the answer to the latter!!
Emirates cup ? hopefully you see a new signing ? the social norm indeed Sue ? is your son an Arsenal fan ? No I’ll check in 3 or 4 days a week wind you up about your age ??
Yeah we’ll see a new signing – Bellerin ?
He sure is, Kev! Haha only 3 or 4 days? ? I guess you’ll need the other 3 days to come up with some new gags, hey Mr Predictable ???? hehe!!
No he’ll be like a new signing lol ? haha yeah need to brush up on my gags Sue ? well you couldn’t predict I was gonna come on today ?? I’m watching MLS now the football never stops ?
That’s true, I was expecting you on Wednesday!! ? MLS.. jeez you’re a glutton for punishment ? be even worse of Rooney pops up!! Or if Drogba is in the crowd ?
Oh no I wasn’t talking to anybody after that shocker ? I just sat in the quiet ? no it was Montreal impact vs Orlando wish I was in Orlando now I think all us Arsenal fans could be doing with 3 weeks in Orlando although we’d have to sedate you for the flight over ??
That’d be lush right now… straight on the rollercoasters!!! I love Orlando! Haha very true Kev ??
Miguel Diaz isn’t dead ? oh have you been Sue ? I’m not very keen on them tbh ? being an Arsenal fan is the only rollercoaster I’ll be on ? Sue that fight won’t kick off until 4, 4:30 ?
Sue AJ got slaughtered haha Ruiz put him down 4 times lol fair play to him a new heavyweight champ ?
I’ve been twice. Diaz – that was random!! Well after all my talk I flaked out & missed it.. didn’t even hear my alarm ?? christ, 4 times?? Bloody hell!! He’s some boxer then ?
Cobra Kai ? oh your well traveled too then ? So how was Disney land ? Hahaha I knew you wouldn’t make it ? I hope you didn’t purchase the fight ? He really is Sue and he’s a fat man but tough as houses tbh AJ isn’t that good I’ve watched all his fights and all of them are hand picked to suit his style, people can argue he fought Wlad Klischko but the man was over 40 and still dropped Joshua! AJ’s physique zaps his energy and makes him one paced, I honestly don’t see him beating Fury or Wilder and if he loses the rematch against Ruiz he can forget those 2 and it’ll be back to the drawing board and a tear up with Dillian Whyte or Del Boy at York hall ?? only 28 more days until Lichsteiner leaves Sue stay strong ??
Fairly well, Kev! Universal was my favourite park. No, was gonna pay when I woke up ??
He had to lose eventually, just shocked ot was to him!!
Stay strong ??? I can’t wait, the flags will be out that day!! So long, Lichtsteiner!! Haha!! I’m surprised you’re up so soon, too much vaping?!! Hehe!!
So what was your favourite ride ? Were you sick on any of them ? haha good job then Sue ? I’m like a zombie today ? I haven’t vaped all week ? so your not gonna miss Lich at all? I thought you wanted him to stay for another season ?
I loved them all, Kev… hardcore!! Tower of Terror probably.. they’ve got rid of it now ?
Oh I hope we don’t bring anymore in like Lichtsteiner… all these rumours about players & no money are giving me nightmares!! Haha!!
No vape – nice one ?
So who do you hope we sell? The way things are going, it wouldn’t surprise me if Laca does go to Barca ?
How come Sue ? It does look good though ? seeing Ox with Champions League makes me sick, we moved to the Emirates to compete and get overtaken by Liverpool they now have 6 European cups and 3 Uefa cups we have 0 European cups and 0 Uefa cups ? no I’m not hooked on it I only use it sparingly these day plus it’s just e juice no nicotine ? Sue tbh I would sell both Lacazette and Aubameyang along with Xhaka and Iwobi plus the entire defence! We need tough mentality players none of those have got that
Changed it.. so it’s only at Euro Disney now. So saying we do sell Laca & Auba and others.. we’d have to write off next season.. God knows who we’ll bring in…does anyone actually wanna play in EL?? What a mess we’re in Kev ????
I know, I feel the same…..we’re just awful in Europe.. ox still makes me ?
I bet you’ve been there too? Selling those 2 we could rebuild the squad build a new mentality ? I’m dreading EL next season that awful music, Thursday nights and with Wolves and Man Utd in it we have no chance of winning it! Haha yeah Sue we’ve only ever really been a domestic winning team ? yeah me too spent half of his Arsenal career in hospital and he had the nerve to show off a European cup ?
Haha yes!! Oh so am I.. it’s so crap.. Haha yes Wolves will probably win it ?
And he even said once a gooner, always a gooner ? I wonder if he thought that as he jumped ship!!
Who knows what the powers that be have in store for us, Kev… I just hope they’ve identified some players! I saw earlier a 4m (defender I think) from Basel.. didn’t we get Elneny from them? Sigh……..?
Wolves or utd will beat us in the final ?? haha he’s no gooner no real gooner would play for Liverpool I certainly wouldn’t ? 4 Mil omg we’re really pushing the boat out this summer Sue lol 10th next year ?
Just saw pictures of the wreckage.. ?
Yeah I read he was flying 120 mph and hit concrete blocks and flipped off the road and burnt up his funeral tomorrow
Awful ain’t it?? Oh yes Kev, we’re really pushing the boat out… yep 10th it is!!
Christ I’ll be vaping before long.. sending you smoke signals ??
It sure is Sue very sad as well god bless his cousin and the other fella too who’s in serious condition with 60% burns.. thinks he’s being buried in Seville tomorrow ? bloody rubbish Sue I’m sick of our cheapness ? haha we’ll be cloud chasing like crazy come August ??
Cloud chasing ☁️☁️ ?? love it!! ?
Haha that’s what they call it ? If you were a vaper I’d say you would be apple pie e-liquid kinda gal ?? jeez Sue I’m watching MLS again on Premier Sports ?
Apple pie, eh?! ?
MLS again??? Haha you’re dying to catch a glimpse of Rooney ?
How did you know ? ? not your flavour then that’s ok maybe strawberry? ??
I’m a Spurs fan, and I would like to say RIP Jose Antonio Reyes. I think football is an important part of anyone’s life, but some things are bigger.
Not often do I agree with you Spurs fans but today absolutely Bill ? it’s good that fans can put rivalries aside as life is more important than any football team.. well said mate ?
I just hope all the Arsenal fan like DT, TROOPZ, and co who prefered for Arsenal lose for Spurs to lose to Arsenal win for Spurs to win are fulfilled now that Liverpool is winnng…
