    They didn't have Pique or Puyol in the second leg last year...
    I'm not talking about last year - we had Silvestre in the back four then.

    We're a totally different team now, we've certainly shown that tonight. Can't wait for the 8th. :arsenal:

    Don't understand why people believed Barcelona would rape Arsenal, did we do that last year? Yes but in a footballing sense perhaps but the scorelines against Arsenal have always been close bar the Camp Nou tie. Either way you have to be a **** to think Arsenal would be battered, they showed today why people need to take them seriously. Well done I say, ought to shut up the haters.

    Looking forward to the Camp Nou tie :yes:

    He did say it was just another win and without a result at Nou Camp this result is meaningless. But still !!! Win over Barcelona with 1 goal behind, which other teams can say that??

    So many Arsenal statuses on facebook, it's ridiculous. Fair play though, Arsenal were quality. Jack Wilshire looked like he could go on to be a really good player.
    Never realised there were so many "Arsenal fans"

    He looked it at the end, yeah. He could have just been exhausted though, I don't know...he definitely looked different than you normally would after that result!

    Excellent result today for you guys, well done Who do you think your stand-out performers were?

    True. But my point was that Barca also didn't have a fantastic back four and you still got thumped.
    And Puyol should be fit for the second leg.

    Still. It was a fantastic comeback, sets it up beautifully for the second leg - Arsenal do look totally different to last year, but they are a difficult team to predict.
    I thought Pep's tactics were a little dodgy - Keita for Villa when only 1-0 up? Hmmm.

    Was so scared Song was going to get sent off( Busquets that ******* was looking for it), good thing Arsene took him off. GREAT game! RVP finally got his goal, Barca were still great though, good to see Arsenal can win under pressure. Can't wait for United's visit to the emirates. Was expecting to see 5 mins of injury time, then i realised this ain't the premier league .

    So? Pique is suspended and Arsenal should have Nasri fitter and Sagna back...Arsenal will only strengthen next leg.
