    Some fans are saying the night where we beat Arsenal 2-0 was the best night of their lives at a football match.
    Ok, we won a game against a top 6 side. Not exactly like winning a trophy I suppose, but when you've been ran like a lower league side for donkeys years and don't get nights like this, the occasion stood up and was brilliant. The Wor Flags show were just magnificent and the stadium looked stunning. Atmosphere was fabulous. Sky must have loved what the cameras showed their worldwide audience.

    It was the best Toon performance I can remember for years and is hopefully something we'll see more of now that there are people running the football side who know what they're doing.

    Onwards and upwards.

    Arsenal will be playing in Europe next season, so they can't be that bad. Aren't they improved from last season?

    I think you're focusing too much on the wrong half of the post.

    In my view both halves of your post were wrong.

    We a championship side battered Arsenal earlier in the season and it probably wouldn't even be in my top 10 Forest moments . I don't think I've ever come across someone as delusional as you my friend

    Yeah, I see you did beat an Arsenal side 1-0 in a cup game. For a Championship side that's clearly great work. Respect you got a result, but with 33% possession and 3 shots on target, you say you battered them? And I'm delusional? Maybe, but I'm in good company then!

    Look, don't get me wrong - we're miles away from being a decent side, and we caught Arsenal on one of their really poorer games. They needed a result much more than we did, but our team weren't on holiday and wanted a good last game of the season at St James Park for the fans.

    Not a world beating performance but to us it's progress.

    Our form since Christmas is better than Chelsea Arsenal and Man U. Ok, not any evidence of brilliance - far from it - but compared to being 19th in the Premiership in November, it's progress.
