Bendner starting again. We are going to lose, tonight everyone will see why Bentdner should not play. He is pathetic, the worst player on arsenal and he gets to start. Barca are a technically gifted team and Bendtner has no qualities too match them. I love the gunners and hope for a win but with Bendtner leading the attack we are doomed. Arsene Wenger usually has great jusdgments about players however for the big dane he is wrong. Mark my words, Bendtner will do nothing tonight, he will be his usual pathetic self.

I heard now tht it’s not yet confirmed tht Fabregas will start. That will only be decided after the warm up.

i’m so fucking nervous. i dont really know what to expect. messi and xavi are the two guys that worry me the most. as long as the lads give it everything then thats enough for me. a clean sheet tonight would obviously be fantastic

No Abidal and Toure on the bench. That Barca defence is not watertight. If we can find a way of occasionally putting up a dam to curb the Messi flood we may have a chance.

We need to step our back line up and put them under pressure; we’re not adapted to soak it up. Fabregas booking was a joke.

Guest

Wow, I don’t remember seeing Arsenal get dominated by that ever. We were on the ropes but Almunia has kept us in it. Hopefully we can do something because that was a blitz but they didn’t capitalize so I hope it works the opposite way this time around as usually we are the ones who dominate a team and not score and then the team gets one chance and put it away.

Damn ref. Should not have been a yellow for fabregas. He got the ball. If anything the ref should have talked to him and told him to chill out on the tackles. Dumbass ref.

Cecs’s knee busted i think.

Denilson was awesome when he came on.

Song was awful as a CB.

Diaby was poor.

Cesc was very poor.

Theo showed desire and hunger with the ball that the rest of them lacked.

Almunia was brilliant other than the 1st goal.

Bendtner was pretty decent considering.

2-2 is more than we deserved. Kinda scared of the Nou camp now, especially without Gallas, Arshavin and Cesc.

Arshavin been poor during his last few games….missed a sitter, falls over, loses the ball, looking clueless at Hull, Birmingham and stoke. I think he needs a rest it might be that playing centre forward for so long has taken it out of him. I think we’ve got a great chance at Nou camp…as long as the players aren’t overawed by at Nou we have a great chance

I’m crying right now…Unbeliable match..This was not even our first team and we fought back…Some poeple will say that we didn’t deserve the penalty but how many times have we seen that happen to us? Fabregas thank you…Walcott thank you. Come on ye Gooners!!!! Believe!!!!

Guest

Based on the circumstances, it was a good result. We could have been out after the 1st leg but we still have a fighting chance. Diaby showed his inconsistency again; he had a very poor performance. Denilson was actually good when he came on. Great maturity and fighting spirit to come back. Kudos to Walcott as his pace bothered their defence.

Great chance at the nou camp? R u for real? We are seriously not good enough to beat barca. This is what we need to aspire to. I think we are at least 4-6 years away from ever winning this or the premier league. To many average players that wenger thinks are good enough!!!
