Yet again Arsenal crashed out of the last 16 in the Champions League, but boy did all the Arsenal players do us proud. I don’t care what negativity anyone has to say! Arsenal deserved to go through to the next round after tonight’s performance even though they couldn’t find that elusive third goal.
By the end of the match I was crying like a baby (last time Arsenal made me cry was when we won the FA Cup in the 2013/14 season, though that was more of a trickle than a torrent). Who’d have thought they would fight so hard to go forward to the quarter finals?
Unfortunately with an aggregate score of 3-3 it was Monaco who progressed to the away goal rule. Oliver Giroud and Aaron Ramsey each scored a blinding goal but in my eyes it’s the whole team who will come back to London heroes of the night. Better luck next year lads!
Here are the reactions from the fans, albeit heroic from both sides of the coin:

Had far too much to do following the first leg, inexcusable disaster at the Emirates. As expected heroic failure from Arsenal yet again #AFC

A Sky sports presenter just used the term ‘heroic’ to describe Arsenal tonight. Whats heroic about going out to Monaco over 2 games? #AFC
