Arsenal played very very well, but remember they were at home, and conceded the away goal – could be crucial! If Arsenal keep a clean sheet in the Nou Camp they deserve to go through! But I can’t see it……
Spurs on the other hand went to the San Siro, scored the away goal and kept a clean sheet – they’re in charge!! But they don’t do clean sheets very often so 2nd leg will be tough.
@RIISE ahhh go away, we know Barca are incredible. We realise we where basically outplayed for about an hour. Thing is we where never swept away, an our defense was incredibly solid considering it was Barca we were playing.
When we got the ball, we looked very slick on the counter, we made chances throughout the game, an converted more of ours then they did there’s. (what counts) Some stats for you:
Stats can be pretty misleading, but Arsenal doesn’t look very swept away there, an considering the way we had to play the game, in some ways, especially the amount of times we caught them offside, it shows that we well with them overall. Obviously, no one in history will ever be able to match what they do with the ball.
Barca is a painfull team for us, when we reached the Champions League final of 06, we where the better team, with a man sent off, for most of that game. They’ve caused us a fair amount of hurt recently an their transfer attitude towards are players has always been, an will probably always be, absolutley disgracefull.
We realise it’s only half time, we know we face superior opposition, away from home, with a 1 goal lead and an away goal conceeded. BUT WE BEAT BARCELONA! Let us enjoy that (an we will) thank you.
@Macca if your serious, woops sorry, got to improve your media blackout.
