    Absolutely - if we play our cards 100% right, and get really lucky too, I think we may have a chance.

    We can, if we want, beat anyone at home - we've shown it in the past. If we don't concede at home, and go to Nou Camp with a 2-0.. we would need to play extremely defensively, and have Theo, Alexis and Welbz countering.

    Essentially need to do what Chelsea did a few years ago..

    That said, I think we'll win/draw at home and get absolutely ****ed at the Camp Nou :lol:

    Cech
    Bellerin Merta Kosc Monreal
    Coq Elneny
    Welbz Ozil Alexis
    Theo

    Should be how we line up..

    He said Arsenal can beat any team at home but I'm pretty sure Arsenal have won two game vs Chelsea in their entire history at the emirates.

    I'm just nitpicking tbh. best of luck vs Barcelona. They're having a really interesting season. En route to 100 points despite having an unspectacular start to the season.

    We can certainly beat them at home but we won't get a sniff at the Nou Camp. I don't think any Arsenal fan believes we'll advance to the next round.

    tbf what do arsenal fans think the end game is in beating Barca over two legs?

    If we beat them, we're only going to draw Madrid or Bayern next.

    Can we beat Barca? Yes, there is an outsider's possibility.

    Can we beat beat Barca, then Madrid, then Bayern? No.

    So what's the end game in beating Barca.

    A team like United under SAF, you could always see a possibility of them pulling off an upset and going all the way but we just dont have the mentality.

    It's like that speech in The Office when Kevin says just focus on the Choc chip cookie, and remove the Oatmeal cookie.

    Chelsea is our biggest bogey team, and we're usually on the end of some bad luck too.

    Arsenal are weird, they can beat anyone usually when there's no expectancy of them. I like that we have no chance against Barca (unlike Monaco last season where there was extreme pressure on the players) because now we can't be disappointed.

    Imagine actually predicting a 2-0 Arsenal win against a fully fit side that is on the verge of being the greatest of all time.

    They were poor that day and Wilshere was on fire. Plus, like I said on the last page, they were a Guardiola side, which is not that difficult to beat if you counter.

    Villa and Pedro were pretty beast at that point though. Not at the level of Suarez and Neymar though.

    Any result which is better than a 1-0 loss will be seen as a victory.

    No doubt a lot of people will be predicting you to lose 3-0+

    Circumstances were slightly different ofc but same idea, odds were stacked heavily against us but with a heroic defensive performance, being clinical in attack and having a stupid amount of luck we might just be able to go to the Nou Camp still in the tie.
