you mean when we get knocked out it will be in Spain, so Wenger doesn't have to face all the booing at the Emirates :D

4-2 to them over the two legs. At no stage will they feel worried.

There was a slim chance of beating them in a one off final but not happening over 2 legs. They are a disciplined and regimented outfit with class players all over the pitch.

Costa, Torres, Griezeman, Juanfran, Koke, the keeper - they have some pretty good players. It will be a bit different from the last two opponents.

It would actually be typical of Arsenal to overcome Athletico and then screw it up in the final. :roll:

I simply cannot see us beating them over 2 legs. Maybe - as many have said z in a one off final, but never over 2 legs.....

.....ah but then we have that little piece of paper that is co-signed in Wenger's blood and Satan's sperm and sits resting in Satan's greedy little hand.... :shock:

Gotta be honest it wouldn't surprise me if he beats them and wins it. It shouldn't happen by any normal reasoning but it would not surprise me in the slightest..... :lol:

If it’s Madrid 0 after the first leg then I think we’ll go through
