you, and me, and a couple million gooners...
I was thinking about this recently, and I certainly don't remember any "Do it for Eddie" banners being created etc. The situation was completely different though, as many have pointed out. We crumbled that day at Birmingham - there was no huge fighting spirit as demonstrated recently at Stoke.
Like others are saying, it's 90% context. The reason there wasn't any 'do it for eddie' rhetoric is because didn't think we were capable of doing it.
They're doing this because of Eduardo, because they've matured and learned from the situation two years ago.
Indeed, we all wanted a "do it for Eduardo" syndrome but things feel apart everywhere.
This time is different because instead of sitting on his hole feeling sorry for himself our captain stood up to be counted.
Holy **** Biggus, that almost sounded positive and even slightly optimistic!
Well as I said before- Crippling one of our young lads to try and stop us is well- sickening.
It puts our petty squabbles in perspective, the way I feel now is they can all go f**k themselves, the primitive minded managers and talking heads the lot of them.
I want to ram it down their throats and see their faces more than anything else if we win it!
I love the sense of unity among gooners right now.
EPL and ECL double please.
we were in shock with Eddie
this time we see it as US vs Everyone after the stupid way the Media handled it
It reminds me of when we did the double for Bobby, actually.
it reminds me of LOST
do it for Aaron
Funnily enough I also think that if we'd won that game then it is quite probable that none of the above would have happened or turned out as it did with players leaving, even if we'd still finished 3rd.
Pretty amazing how can one game affect the rest of the season, isn't it? This time it should be different, it'll be different.
There were plenty of "we'll do it for Eduardo" cries. We are the masters of talking the talk and not walking the walk. Talk is cheap. I don't give a flying **** if Almunia or Cesc says "we're going to do this for Eduardo" or something similar. After the Eduardo injury, the whole squad was at it.
This time, the players are keeping quiet. Cesc hasn't said a word after his interview to Sky. That's the way it should be. This time, we have to do our talking on the pitch.
the exact same thing would have probably happened if it hadn't been for bendtner's **** pass that resulted in a penalty. which is why i am skeptical of this supposed mental toughness of this team. we'll see though...
Just like how there is now with messages being sent to Aaron through the Arsenal website, when eduardo was out fans were doing the same with the message-sending, and I saw some saying "Win the league for Eddie" etc.
The Brum match was a complete disaster, from the tackle, to the penalty, to our captain abandonment, to chances going begging to make it 3-1 **cough**Adebayor**cough**. To convince ourselves everything was going to be alright when we lost the plot at the end, belief deep inside would have been low, very low.
Fast forward to 2010, we are faced with another disastrous situation. This time, there is no captain abandonement, we really did make it 3-1, and to hand these lads the mission of winning a title is alot more realistic, as it should.
has anyone dare say...just...y`know...do......
