One has to feel for Reading, but then when you see how much that meant to the arse fans and wenger maybe it was best they did win. It’s their hope for a trophy, let’s not forget. Those fans were going crazy and getting very angry every time a move broke down when it was 4-2. Then wenger was doing his penguin bit, smacking his straight arms down to his side repeatedly. It wasn’t looking good for the french jimmy savile, but turned out alright in the end.
Poor Reading, though. 4-0 up, and it really should’ve been 7-0 by then. And a stone wall penalty not given. But Arse got a late goal in 1st half. Then Reading sit back in 2nd half and almost got away with it until the ref decides to play some fergie time. Reasons unknown. A sub in stoppage time is 30secs. Anyway, we somehow get past 95 mins before arse finally get the equaliser. Cue wild scenes and euphoria by arse fans (those left, I mean, as many of the ‘loyal’ fans had fkkd off before half time) behind the goal. I thought they’d won the Champions’ League. They hadn’t of course, it was an equalising goal in a 4th round league cup game at Reading.
Then arse players throw their shirts into the crowd. What celebration. Until someone told the thick fkkrs the game wasn’t over just because you equalise in the 6th minute of 4 mins injury time. Red faces and the fans throw the shirts back. lol.
Then extra time. And arshavin scores after 13mins. But a tired Reading surprisingly equalise to make it 5-5. But walcott goes and gets an injury time 6th goal, and then Reading miss a couple of chances, and finally a late lob gets the 7th and wining goal. Euphoria again behind the goal. Yes, they’re thru’ to the quarter finals of the league cup.
Let’s be serious – at least arse are still in with a shout for a ‘trophy’ (lol) this year. If they do hold their luck we could even see celebrations like the scousers had last year when they only missed 2 pens from 5 when cardiff missed 3 from 5 in the league cup final. That was worth every minute, just watching the celebrations of the scousers. lol.
Keep your fingers crossed, pomp.
