Beware, Milan: All three of Arsenal’s losses this season have been followed by a Victory

Arsenal have their seasonal date with destiny tonight against the experienced juggernaut that is AC Milan, and while the Italians are made the proverbial favourites on name alone, Arsenal FC historically thrive on any slight ‘underdog’ status they can inch themselves. The most fatal inferiority complex in history, perhaps?

-{…this is the most tasty fixture we’ve been involved since the Arsenal at the Bernabau.}-

Nevertheless, it is as important to not underestimate AC Milan as it is to not overestimate them. We all know how dangerous Seedorf, Pirlo, Kaka, Pato, Gattuso and Inzaghi are, and their free-kick ability is far more consistent than Fabregas’ fledgling assist-boot.

Of course, that ignores our own newfound aerial ability in the form of Emmanuel Adebayor and the goalpoaching dexterity of Eduardo da Silva, as well as the return of Sagna, Clichy, Denilson, Walcott and Flamini. Not only have we our first team back (minus Almunia), we have some handy depth as well.

-{…I fully expect the occassion’s tensity to be an extremely potent and positive impetus for our young side. }-

For fear of overanalysing this game into something that it probably will not turn out into later, I’ll just say the obvious and say this is the most tasty fixture we’ve been involved since the Arsenal at the Bernabau. I can hardly sit still in anticipation to tonight’s (tomorrow morning for this side of the world) game, and I have a strong, strong, strong feeling that the club will do us very proud. Pato and Kaka’s return make it a delicious matchup, but there’s something in this side – I have a feeling it is Flamini – that can shut their side’s shop right up and stick a goal or two up where it hurts.

These are the nights the players dream of, and I fully expect the occassion’s tensity to be an extremely potent and positive impetus for our young side. As much as I want to win the Premier League, the Champions League remains a priority, and this will not be an Old Trafford. The Emirates is due its first ‘classic European match’ – we’ve had excellent domestic fixtures thus far, but its time to add to our European bow.

Like all of you, I simply cannot wait. I’ll be slinging that red and white scarf around like there’s no tomorrow – hopefully not waking any of the fellow housemates up, but screw them. This is the Arsenal we are talking about.

And they’re playing the ‘best team in the world’. It’s worth a bellowing shout or two, is it not?

  3. Yup I can’t wait too and I just got up from a long sleep (now 8.48pm here) and the match is at 3.40am here in Malaysia! I will as well shout for each goal Arsenal scores and when they win at the final wistle I will shout hooooooraaaayyyyyy as loud as i could! Damn my neighbours, this is once in a lifetime game maybe and a win will be sweeetttt! And when Arsenal do that, we fans will totally forget our team’s horrible blips (at Scums n Old Shitte) and their fans as well will shut their mouths finally because we just beat the best team on planet, the Champions of Champions!

    I feel pitty for those Scum fans, last season they was so confident and even had wet dreams on playing a top club like milan..haha! Now they are playing Slavia Prague??!!

    GO ARSENAL n GET A GREAT RESULT!!

    2-0 will be great and Arsenal have to stop Milan from scoring in away game, so then when Arsenal go to San Siro they can defend and hit on Milan on breaks..there i predict will be 1-1 and bang we won the whole tie!!

    What’s your prediction??

    ARSENAL ROCKS!!

  4. I have the butterflies and there are still six and a half hours to go…
