So at least we can claim moral victory that we only "lost" to bayern on an admittedly flawed and arbitrary away goals rule while they absolutely destroyed Juventus and Barca. Arsenals impressive run of drawing the best team in the round of 16 or quarters of the CL continues

After watching Chelsea celebrate making it to the Europa Final made me think...Would other Gunner fans accept the Europa or Carling Cup Titles as "Title" or do you only accept the big 3? I would accept the Carling and comforting for the future and secretly be happy about a Europa Cup Title.
It's not that black and white. Id take qualifying for CL over carling cup and Europa in a heartbeat. It'd be close with the FA cup. Making the CL greatly increases your chances of competing for the league and obviously it's the only way you can compete for the CL title
I would have loved the 2011 Carling Cup. That Cesc-led team could have been amazing. I really believe if we won that trophy, we would have won the league. We were second most of the season. After the final, we won only 2 games, drew six, and lost three.
I would take any trophy right now so we can we build the confidence of our young players. We need that more than anything else.
