Arsenal can no longer win a trophy this season, and only need two points from their remaining two matches to confirm their place in the top four. This leaves very little to get overly excited about this season, so why not look to the next one!
After the collapse of the latest Arsenal Premier League title challenge made it 12 years since the invincibles squad was the last Arsenal side to be crowned champions of England, Arsenal fans will be lining up to tell you all of the mistakes that have been made by Arsene Wenger.
If you have not seen the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, both the English and Spanish football media are reporting that Barcelona, the current holders of the Champions League, La Liga and Copa Del Rey trophies, are seriously considering making a transfer bid for the Arsenal and Germany international play maker in the summer transfer window.
This would be great news for Arsenal FC and would give us Arsenal fans some great ammunition to fire at our counterparts on the red half of Merseyside in the banter wars over the summer and into next season, especially as it would be the second time in a couple of seasons that it happened and after the way they took the mickey about our transfer bid for Luis Suarez it would be ironic to say the least.
There were a lot of things that Arsenal needed to do right to stand a chance of overturning the home leg defeat against Barcelona when we met again in the Nou Camp tonight. As well as Barca not being at their best, the Gunners had to perform at our own top level.
Arsenal are not out of the Champions League yet! by Sam P
A lot of you will surely say that Barcelona simply destroyed Arsenal at the Emirates on Tuesday, but the fact is that with a bit of luck we could easily have been two goals up before the Catalans scored their first.
As Arsenal get set to host the European champions Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League, the Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has insisted that his team are capable of beating the all-conquering Spanish giants when the teams take to the field at the Emirates stadium.
Some hope for Arsenal fans? RC
Barcelona currently boast the three best players in the world as individuals, however it’s their connection and understanding that the trio share which makes them, arguably, the most frightening front-line in football history. The combined force of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez make the Catalans hot favourites to become the first team in the Champions League era to retain the European Cup.
