While watching the FA Cup match on Saturday evening between Liverpool and Arsenal on BBC One I couldn't help but laugh at chants from the Gooners towards the pool fans.
As we all know Blackburn Rovers were recently crushed 6-2 by the Gooners at the Emirates Stadium just before Christmas; arguments on fair reflection of the game scoreline etc. are not the issue here the chants that I heard coming from the Arsenal fans towards their Liverpool counterparts following two quick goals brought a rise smile to my face. These chants were:
"Are you Blackburn, are you Blackburn, are you Blackburn in disguise!"
You have to take some things in good humour don't you, I took this as one of them plus we got some free publicity on the BBC!
Some of the funniest things you are ever likely to hear come from the terraces. Had we not reacted to that defeat with four straight League and Cup victories maybe I wouldn't have been so amused by it but as it is with the FA Cup holders crashing out and us marching on towards Cardiff… I mean "the New Wembley" and our upturn in fortunes and form as it is I was happy to give a little tip of the cap to the Arsenal fans and accept their friendly jibes towards us…
As has now been more than pointed out to me it was in fact "are you Tottenham, are you Tottenham, are you Tottenham in disguise!" And not Blackburn. D'oh! I should have know better really but HONESTLY thought it did sound like Blackburn on TV and was some quick thinking Gooner fans making a clever reference to our 6-2 defeat.
