I cannot be too hard on Arsenal because for so much of this big game that we were expected to lose the Gunners got it right and looked like we would take it right down to the wire in the second leg at the Nou Camp in Barcelona.
But then we were caught out pushing forwards and they hit us on the break for the first goal by Messi and then the tie was taken out of sight when Flamini flapped a leg and gave away a penalty to give Barcelona a two goal advantage which you would have to say kills the tie.
Arsene Wenger got his tactics right and for most of the game it looked like we would go to to Spain with very real hopes of causing a massive upset. But then it all went wrong. To be fair we we did have enough good chances and with some sharper finishing Arsenal could have had a goal.
We did not do it though and now our chances in Europe are all but gone.
