Butterflies Flutter By

Excited? Nervous? I think it’s only just starting to dawn on me that tonight’s our biggest night ever, at least in European terms.

For once, I can predict the starting line-up with some confidence – Lehmann, Eboue, Campbell, Toure, Flamini, Gilberto, Reyes, Ljungberg, Fabregas, Hleb and Henry.

I don’t know what to expect, I really don’t, but I expect there’ll be some nerves out there, just as there are right here.

A bold approach is what we need – and a nice early goal [deflected, half over the line, not over the line at all but still given, trickling in off the back of a passing squirrel, I really couldn’t care how].

I’m in pieces already.


Arsenal since about 1979. Thick, thin and all that.
