[after Robert missed the goal at the end of the game]
If you had to choose between wining this afternoon and Arsenal winning tomorrow night, what would you go for?
Tomorrow night of course!
There you go then.

On Arsenal underpants, the term "GUNNER" truly fits.
Fantastic. I had the pleasure of going to Highbury (Arsenal Stadium) twice to see the Gunners play in real Premiership clashes against Sheffield Wednesday and Wimbledon, and the soccer fanaticism portrayed in the film is NOT hyperbolized at all. As a Yank, i felt like a right outsider, but i was hooked instantly when i exited the Underground station and was swept away in the program selling, chips devouring, pin swapping, memorabilia peddling madness that is English Football.
Additionally, Fever Pitch is the ONLY modernly set British film i've seen that did not contain a single refference to American culture, film, TV, music, nothing...
A totally home grown Brit flick which (to use an American sporting analogy) hits it out of the park. Shamelessly sublime.
