Arsenal have real Heart

arsenal pennentIts quite strange, early today on FB I mentioned my heart attack seven years ago, and the fact I was watching Arsenal at the time. Well today Arsenal could have easily given me another heart attack. What a game, should have been simple for the gunners but as usual they made it difficult. They took the lead one to nil around the 55 minute mark, then five minutes later were down to ten men on a red card. They held on until the 90 minute mark but seconds into the seven minutes stoppage time Burnley won a penalty to tie the game. It looked like we were about to drop two points! In the last moments Arsenal were awarded a penalty and Alexis put the ball in the net for the win. What a game,from cheering to tears then back to cheering again!! Can’t have been good for my heart, but a good result as we move into second place in the table. The manager, Arsene Wenger, was sent down the tunnel for remarks to the referee, he didn’t see but must have heard the cheers as the second Arsenal goal went in. Go Gunners Go.
