Our Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern have already enjoyed this weekend with their side still to play later today in the second FA Cup semi-final.
Indeed, cup fever has swept over all of us here by the bar with the first semi-final yesterday providing a very entertaining affair.
Certainly, the game between Chelsea and Tottenham lived up to the billing as the Blues eventually came out 4-2 winners against their Premier League title rivals.
Arsenal fans, then, were pleased to see their neighbours crash out ahead of their game with Manchester City this afternoon and certainly made themselves heard on Twitter thereafter.
Here, then, is the best of the reaction:
Journalists: Maybe you can talk about a ‘power shift’ when Spurs win 12 FA Cups and Arsenal lose 8 consecutive FA Cup semi finals. Thanks.

Spurs have now gone longer without a trophy than Arsenal ever did in the infamous 2005-2014 period. Not so much as a word said by the media.

If Arsenal dominated possession and lost 4-2 against Chelsea we would be weak and naive. Spurs were the better team and deserved to win.Joke

Spurs are similar to 2007-11 Arsenal: good to watch but didn’t win trophies. We were criticised for it, they’re praised for it. Levels #AFC
