Okay Arsenal let two goals in and that has left us with a mountain to climb ahead of the second leg of the Champions League tie with Barcelona. But it could and would have been so much different if only our attacking players had some sort of clue about how to put the ball in the back of the net.
The plan for Arsenal was always going to be about defending and hitting the La Liga champions on the break but in order to do that you have to take a few of the chances that come your way and once again we failed, miserably. Barca were good as you would expect but they were there for the taking tonight and if only we had took the lead it could have gone very badly for them.
Instead we let them off the hook and now they have a two goal lead to protect at the Nou Camp. I don’t blame our strikers completely but I cannot help but wonder what would have happened if Wenger had signed a decent striker in the transfer window. How about you?
