Arsenal 2 Barcelona 1
And I was there. Which was nice.

Season ticket well worth it for that one game.

Barcelona were fantastic, truely awesome. It was, as last year, a priveledge to watch them play. Football as it really should be played. In every area of the pitch they had awesome class, composure, pace, creativity and grit.

But Arsenal lived with them for long periods. We soaked up the pressure, rode our luck at times and took them as they tired. All three goals were good goals. Barcelona dominated possesion for long periods out tippy-tapping the Gooners, but Arsenal stuck to their brand of football too and had a lot of creative play and more chances and shots on goal.

Alves was peerless, and seemingly constantly available with Clichy stretched to cover his marauding and superb Villa. Messi was a little subdued but still a delight to watch play. Iniesta was awesome, Pique rock solid and Xavi as dependable as always.

So many Gunners performed. Cesc was fine, Clichy did the job, Koscielny had a great game. Szczesny made some good saves and Walcott looked dangerous. Song had to come off before he got sent off, but you can't deny his commitment.

The star however was young Jack Wilshere. My God he's good. He looked the equal of Iniesta, and was possibly man of the match. He's 19.

Bring on the return leg. I accept barcelona are still favorites. And rightly so. But the Arsenal have nothing to fear. Barcelona are the best team on earth right now, but Arsenal 'can' beat them. Know what? That'll do.

and what a game of football.

Brager!

How to get tickets in this country? Can you fix 2-4 tickets for Tottenham - AC Milan?

DO IT!

FCK arsenal sounds good to me for a final :D

My son got in I didn't. :(

But it was worth it to see his cheesy grin afterwards :D

I ended up in a pub two thirds full of Barca fans. A very good night. ;)

PC, thought you were living stateside these days? On holiday?

Cheers for getting to a great game though, either way.
Posted by Balle2000 on 2011-02-17 17:44:43
You are a Gooner? .... and to think I held you in such good esteem...

Btw: Welcome, AC Milan, to White Hart Lane for the 2nd leg. Leave the clowns at home this time.

I always thought that the Eton man had to support Chelsea or Fulham?
Posted by Flix on 2011-02-17 21:08:41
Very good Match

Barca will win the return game, i guess. 3-0
Posted by Garion on 2011-02-18 14:07:03
Well I support Newcastle so since we beat Arsenal 1-0 and drew 4-4 that must me we would beat Barca 3-1 :) lol yeah right.
Posted by Flix on 2011-02-18 19:02:48
they said in television that ticket cost 50+ is that corret?
Posted by PurpleChest on 2011-02-18 19:52:29
Not for me, But then i have a season ticket, and it was an insluded game. So its the same price as i will be paying top watch us face stoke on wednesday next week.

My expectations of that game are somewhat lower.
