Spurs and Schalke Advance

Spurs faced off against AC Milan with a first Leg advantage, and this showed the benefit of winning their group as not having to play against a mighty Team such as Barcelona (something Arsenal will look back on with regret)

The game ended in a 0-0 draw and Spurs were very lucky to not have conceded on many occasions, such as Gallas clearing the ball off the line.

Spurs will be full of confidence having got past both Italian Giants Inter and Milan and will be relishing the chance to continue their European Adventure.

Harry Redknapp stated "It’s great for the players and great for the fans and great for everybody, I’m delighted,"
They will be hoping that they don't draw Barca in the next round, but from my point of view I hope they do and are beaten 6-0 in both legs.....we all have hopes i guess.

But I must give them credit as they are playing some quality football even if it was an average performance last night, and every Gunner bone in my body wants them to be thrashed in the next round

Schalke 04 Winger hit a brace as his side turned around last 16 second leg tie to win 3-1 and go through 4-2 on aggregate. Costa had given Valencia the lead before Farfan & Gavranovic scored twice to help them win. Well done to them as many thought that they would not do it and I hope they receive an easy draw (maybe Spurs) as I would like them to do well.

Right now for some Gunner News:

Almunia, the forgotten goalkeeper has stated that Arsenal could have beaten Barca, if our players were not walking to get to the ball. Almunia who surprised many including myself with his performance,may just be on crack because although we were walking at the end I think it had something to to do with that Cock of a ref reducing us to ten men and oh the small matter of, the best team ever in my opinion, running us raggered.

But ok, I'm past this now........Manu Next...I hate those mancs and go read my rivals at www.jimmysportzone.blogspot.com and www.eshibobo.blogspot.com to see things from a bloody manc point of view.

So Manu next and I fancy our chances, they are no Barca and don't nearly have the caliber of player save for maybe Rooney and the now injured cry baby. So I should hope for a Win, which would be a great thing especially as its away from home.........until next time.

Come on the Gunners!
