Thing is for this old fella, is that I rather arrogantly consider myself more realistic than many on here, indeed last time Everto beat Arsenal away form home many of you were not even born, sobering thought that......if you know your history and so on.
As soon as we went 0-1 up I am watching thinking 2-1 to them, many things in life just happen, some are so predictable....has anyone noticed how many goals we conceed 2 mins either side of half time and then agin 70 to 75 minute mark? It's uncanny.
I try to console myself wit the thought that most teams lose at Emirates, except Newcastle, Hull etc LOL - for sure we can all play manager with hindsight and no pressure, I don't know a the forward lads, and it's easy to blame him, him and that.....Evertonians suffer donkeys years of pent up frustration, being the butt of many a joke and having the piss royally ripped day in day out, with the odd bit of relief, the odd good run, results, but by and large we end up dissapointed.
It is what it is - don't make it easier or right, but we have played Arsenal every year "away" since we last beat them way back in 1996. Piss poor by anyones standards.
