Too good to be true: Arsenal in Semi-final!

I was in philosophical mood after the young Arsenal side progressed to the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time in the club’s history. It was the end result rather than the performance which was important. Very few of my friends didnt give Arsenal any chance to go beyond the second round not to talk of reaching the semi final.

In yesterday’s game against almighty Juventus, the young Arsenal lads missed so many scoring chances which would have killed the game off. Arsenal have never before been into the semi-finals of Europe’s elite club competition.

Now, Arsenal is in the semi-final with another unexpected team. It will, definitely, be a 50-50 game. So, guys, anything can happen now oh :-).

    I agree with you that the game against Villareal is 50-50 game. The Arsenal boys just need to remain calm and maintain their discipline. With that, I dont see Arsenal having problem. But like Arsene Wenger always says, “it is one game at a time”. First, the game at Old Trafford and then the next…
