    Fans 10: I am American Gooner and I can tell you, from only watching the game on T.V, that I have never seen the Emirates rocking like that. It was just a pleasure to see the belief in the fans. I believe if our traveling supporters can find a voice at Camp Nou, we have a real shot at a comprehensive victory.

    What an amazing night for young Jack! look carefully this scenario: You are 19 years old playing in midfield against one seasoned skilled footballer, arguably the best in his position Xabi, and towering skilled holding midfielder. Your senior partner, more established and most feared, had an early yellow card and is on tightrope. The other partner and your playmaker is having a bad night giving possession away too easily. And everyone around seems panicky! In such Scenario you expect a 19 year old to panic; over-commit and give away silly free cakes, but not this lad! He assess the Situation and analyse the play, theorise and come up with: 1) survival of the fittest theory: you can only survive if fight fiercely and forcefully; 2) there’s always a way out of trouble, end of the tunnel. Barca are not faultless and there are definitely spaces to turn to, and opportunities to dribble through; 3) even The wall of Berling was breakable, it’s only a matter of time and effort; 4) if you show you can fight maybe your teammates will follow your example. That was the way the young lad’s brain assessed the situation and that called super cognitive ability. Football is always about skills, which definitely the young lad have, but also about fighting, decision-making and believing. Wilshere showed all of that last night against the so-called ‘best team’ in the world. He put his these theories in practice and showed his teammates how to fight and get out of trouble.

    Similary, Kosilney has similar theorisation. He knew that he was facing new weaponry that he has never seen before. The best offensive weaponry you’ll ever see. He also saw his towering partner not really up for a fight, and was almost left alone to face the fire of the most organised and clinical bombardier, so he decided to employ guerrilla’s tactics; emerge from out of nowhere, anticipate the action of the enemy and attack when they think they’re in control.
