If Arsenal can defy the odds at the Emirates Stadium tonight and prove all the doubters wrong by beating the treble winning Barcelona side in the first leg of our Champions League knockout tie, it will send us Arsenal fans into raptures of delight.
But our German international star Mesut Ozil wants the fans to act like the players have already given them something to shout about and make some serious noise throughout the big game this evening. Our creative midfielder thinks that the Emirates crowd has a big part to play if the Gunners are to get the right result tonight but he also feels that the team has got it in them, as proved when we shocked the football world earlier this season by beating Bayern Munich.
The German champions had won every single game in all competitions when they arrived in London and no one gave Arsenal a chance but not only did we stop them from winning, we stopped them from scoring and put two past their keeper Manuel Neuer for good measure. So Ozil is reported in The Independent trying to evoke memories of that great performance and result to get the fans fully fired up.
Ozil said, “We need you more than ever.
“Scream, support and encourage us over 90 minutes in every tackle and every situation. We already showed that against Bayern Munich – now we have to repeat such a performance on the pitch with your support.”
So come on you Gooners and Come On You Gunners!
