Arsenal believed they were in Wonderland as they continue to venture further down the Europa League’s rabbit hole. Earlier this week, Fabio Vieira said he wants to win both The Premier League and The Europa league as just like Christopher Columbus, he dreamt of a Conquest of Paradise on The Field of Dreams.
Arsenal no longer live in their glorious marble Highbury Halls but Granit is the stone that keeps them in place. Xhaka is closing in on his 300th app overall for Arsenal so it comes as no surprise when he scored and screamed “This is Arsenal” possessing the true spirit of King Leonidas. Arsenal fans were Glad All Over.
The joy did not last as Gonçalves scored a wonder goal close enough to the half way line that he even had Andy Gray along with the Arsenal fans screaming “Take a Bow Son”. Unbelievable scenes Geoff. There was something vital missing from this Arsenal squad.
Inevitably the game went to Penalties. Unfortunately it was not meant to be. Chef Arteta tried his best to cook something special but even The Wizard of Ode could not save us this time. There is no place like home. Palace up next on Sunday just before international breaks commences.
