Most people have already written off any hope a English club making the Wembley final of this year's Champions League. Needless to say however, Chelsea did it last year. It has almost become a cliché but right now it is suitable. Arsenal are still in the tournament and that means no-one should write them of. Not even the most critical of anti-Wenger supporters.

The Gunners can still beat Bayern Munich this Wednesday. Yes the Bavarian giants are twenty points clear at the top of Bundesliga. And yes they have only lost two games all season, in addition to the two goal advantage they have going into the second leg. 

The odds may seem against Carzola and co. but it is not impossible. Of course we must return to the story of Di Matteo's team for any possible comparison, who turned over a 3-1 deficit against Napoli, albeit at home. If Arsenal grab an early goal, the confident mood in Munich will be dented. The what if possibility will be more than just that. It will be tough be it can be done but only if if these situations arise.
