Tim Vine’s verdict on the match

Bowmer’s Blog bumped into Sutton United fan Tim Vine at Gander Green Lane after his side were defeated 2-0 by Arsenal in the FA Cup.

The comedian and pun extraordinaire, who has been a vocal supporter of the club and a visible presence throughout their improbable Cup journey, was magnanimous in defeat and felt that Arsenal deserved the victory.

“I think we did very well, but you’re left thinking that if we’d just put a couple of those chances away obviously it would have been different, but that’s what the great sides do, they always do enough each time. So I think if we’d put those two chances in, we probably would have lost 4-2. I think Arsenal would always have done enough to beat us, because they are just a better side.”

House of Commons speaker John Bercow was also at the match, although he supports Arsenal.
