Here's Paul, from the Tipperary Arsenal Supporters' Club: "Watched game in Spotted Cow Bar in Ho Chi Minh City. Great atmosphere there. Non-Arsenal supporters were very vocal when we were two down but Santi’s brilliant goal quietened them. Arsenal were never going to lose after that!"

And here's Chung from Vietnam: "I had thought that the worst would come after the second Hull City goal. But like the players, I won’t give up and we finally won. It’s amazing! I'm proud of you all. It’s one of the best, most important events of my life."
