    No, given the pressure that we had just been putting them under, and the fact that most of them looked shell shocked and their legs had gone, I was sure that we could still snatch a goal in the last ten minutes.
    Still , I am the eternal optimist and I always think like that.... ;)

    No, I thought that they were dead on their feet and we can never be written off. I thought Stevie would score but still couldn't bare to watch him take it.

    Well, there was still time on the clock and we'd looked well capable of getting another for the past 30 mins, so I thought we could, but obv the odds were against us, there wasnt really enough time to digest it all, by the time I'd stopped swearing and looked at, Babel was on his way.

    Not enough time for me to think at all between their second goal and Babels penalty.

    So it's a 'maybe' for me.

    Nope.

    I knew we would get another.

    They were dead on their feet with the exception of Walcott.

    I did think it would be Gerrard but not a peno.

    Oh yes, it was michael thomas all over again for me. Head was in hands. We were out. that was it. If I was Gerrard, I would have lost my legs. What composure...

    I didn't think we were out of it, but I did think the odds had swung pretty clearly against us at that moment.

    I was convinced we were out at that point, and lost my mind when we got the pen, only to remind myself we needed to score before celebrating, and then lost my mind again went Gerrard scored

    That said, I thought Gerrard would miss.

    I have to say that after seeing the line up I wasn't in the most positive of moods, so after we went one nil down I thought the game was over then.

    I'm usually pretty negative and very nervous when watching a game, but I knew they'd be more goals in that game, from both sides.

    Me too. I just thought they'd be all going to Arsenal. Thankfully, I was very very wrong.

    Yea I thought the jig was up tho' I never gave up hope. I have to say my heart beat so fast as Gerrard was lining up the penalty.

    I still thought we had every chance of getting one more although when the penalty went in I thought there was every chance they could go down the other end and pinch another one.

    Yeah... as Adebayor turned to celebrate, I got up to go to the kitchen in a right sulk, but no sooner had I got there, I was called back with cries of "penalty!!!".

    I honestly didn't. All through the second half I was convinced they were going to score a second, and when it came I was just relieved that there were still more than five minutes left. I was sure we'd get a third. It was just that kind of match...

    [/quote]

    That's what I was thinking. They had looked very dodgy in defence all through the second half and I thought there was still time to get the ball back in there and nick a third - can't say I was confident, but I thought it was possible.
