I am sure that some Arsenal fans will be sick of hearing that the Gunners have been unlucky, but it is hard to get away from the fact sometimes and once again tonight against Barcelona in the Nou Camp a key moment went against Arsenal and it could have proved to be a turning point in the game and the two-legged tie in general.
How motivated will the Arsenal players be to play Barcelona tonight? by KM
Hello fine ladies and gentleman! How excited are you to watch the all mighty Arsenal face Barcelona tonight? I’ll watch the game with a bunch of friends and I’m fearful of the scoreline. Arsene said we will be going gung ho on the attack.
Barcelona v Arsenal: A template for damage limitation By Twig
The Arsenal and France international defender Laurent Koscielny is apparently fit again and available to play in the second leg of the Champions League knockout tie with La Liga giants Barcelona and hopefully our best centre back will then stay fit for the rest of the season.
Arsenal Opinion: Go for the throat! by Toby Leach
Once again Arsenal dominated possession and passed the ball around blah blah blah, and still ended up on the losing side again. But in the FA Cup it was our first defeat in three years so you could say by the law of averages, that we had to lose at some point!
I am not talking about the game Arsenal face in the Champions League this week, because not too many of us Arsenal fans are holding on to anything but the hope of a miracle and I don’t think that any of us had much confidence that we would get through over two legs against Barcelona even before the home leg was played.
Arsenal have a massive week ahead starting with today’s FA Cup match at home to Watford, followed by our trip to Barcelona in midweek, and then a massive game away at Everton in the League next weekend. We know now for sure that the trip to Goodison Park will not be easy as the Toffees yesterday knocked Chelsea out of the Cup, and our annoying neighbours have no chance whatsoever of getting anything from this season as they are even 9 points below a Europa League position.
