We will have the best stadium in Europe, with 75,000 seats, and we'll have more than enough money." - Valencia CF President Juan Soler, 2007 Little analysis needed, folks. Win and Arsenal is one match away from a European trophy and next year's Champions League. Lose and the season ends on Sunday with Arsenal in 5th and back in Europa next year. For Arsenal the emphasis will obviously be on offense, in part because their defense sucks and because getting 1 goal will force Valencia to at least net 3 to force extra time. There'll be no need to hold back in any way for league play, either, now that their domestic fate is sealed, so whatever is left in their physical and emotional tanks needs to be used up Thursday afternoon. We're all pissed and disappointed, we're all dreading the lack of prospective roster moves from the off season... For all our gripes the club still has a shot at something pretty big. Time to rally around the badge.
