YESSSSSSSS!!!! I'm so happy that we won, as an Arsenal fan, this is the best day of my life, and now I can brag to my friend. What're your thoughts on this game?
Arsenal played well, but I have to say, so did Barcelona, great goals from both teams.

Is it really the best day of your life, because now you have to not concede or beat at Nou-Camp.

don't brag too much, it is only the 1st leg, and Barcelona have come away from Emirates with a vital away goal.
I think we have to congratulate the gunners, as they didn'y gave up on the game.

but, apart from my impartial judgement, i have to say that barcelona is the best team that ive ever seen play football. I'm only 22 years old, but since i watch this beautiful game, barça has simply been extraordinary!

the way they pass the ball, their technique, their killer passes are just a joy to watch!
i dont really like messi mutch, i preferred when ronaldinho used to make magic there, that was indescribable!

but still, i agree with TAZZ, i think that the gunners now have a living hell waiting on Camp Nou, but I hopefully expect them to lose, because i think that barcelona has to much to give to European football to be eliminated now. nothing personal against arsenal though! ;)

cheers
As a neutral I have to say it's one of the best games i've seen in a long long time
Happy happy to see an arsenal win!
Great goal by v. Persie and a superb counterattack.

Butt, you do know, barca always score...
Gonna be tough.
Put my money on Barca, but my hopes on Arsenal.

persie's goal wasn't is merith!!! it's valdés fault, any world class striker would score that goal!
Arsenal to go through on away goals in the next leg probably losing 3 2, they will definitely score and i cant see barca scoring 3 goals in normal time with the tactics they will have to play, not with the threat of arsenal attacking there is no way barca can play attacking enough to score 3 without arsenal scoring on the break :D
I think that Arsenal should've played a very deep defensive line instead of trying to play offside against Barca, and Arsenal gave away possesion too easily in the first half. Good to see Arshavin scoring again though.

See I think they chose right option in playing a high line because the deeper they played then the more Barca could have come on to them and ultimately picked more holes through them
Mourinho defended very very deep against Barca and he won, it's the tactic that i employ in the game as well, with some good player marking Xavi :D, as for the real game it was indeed very very entertaining, as the 2 teams already used us. If things don't change a lot i see Barca going in the next round, but who knows, maybe Wenger will mastermind some new tactic and Arsenal will outclass Barca :D Good teams both, may the best win!

I agree with Tom!
Barcelona plays a possession football and patiently passes the ball until one of their passing masters (iniesta, xavi) finds a break in the defence, deep defense will only give them more spaces and gaps to explore!

although they are also very good at exploring the offside trap, it's a difficult match-up!

From my point of view no miracles will happen this time and Wenger is not Mourinho and don't forget that Mourinho's present team didn't have a chance to compete with the TEAM that is called Barca! I am fond of Arsenal cause the way they work on this team builds a bunch of kids into great footballers but they lack communication in the field and needless to say that if van persie or Arshavin wouldn't have risked to play more attacking wisely in the second half Arsenal would have no chance!
And if Barca were more lucky in the first half and some time in the second then the score would be beyond doubt against the gunners...but I have heard some rumors which are not really good for english teams including Arsenal how can a team like this wins 0-4 against a low team as Newcastle and in the second half concede 4 goals??? Something is not right here as well as the defeat of ManU which was I think their first loss this year!!!
In my opinion if rumors involve some smoke rising then I feel sad and I guess premier league is not the best league in Europe! So, I will feel good if Arsenal upset the odds in Camp Nou!
