    Come on Dave, we're better than having two Arsenal threads on the same match.

    Still not worried about Arsenal getting through. Barca win 1-0 at Nou Camp and they are through. Arsenal are still very much fecked.

    Is it OK to root for Arsenal? While I would love for the Gooners to be knocked out, I don't want to run into Barca in the next round if we get there.

    well you guys forget that barcelona had lots of chances to score 5 or 6 goals and 1 goal was not given which was a regular goal by messi when he headed it.

    Far from it even if he was offside (which he wasnt) the ball was also played with the hand by an arsenal player.

    Im confident barcelona will go through because barcelona is a totally different level at their ground than away.

    yet they didnt deserve to lose today.

    Um... I was spending all day deliberating weather or not it was alright for a Spurs fan to secretly want the Scum to win tonight. Only for the fact that it might make our chances of actually winning this competition a bit more realistic. Was I the only person thinking this? Surely not?

    But on seeing some of the game tonight, Barca don't really scare me that much. Lethal going forward, of course. They are great at picking out those runs with a dangerous through ball. But defensively they are not really that formidable. Their full backs attack way too much and they are left wide open on their flanks. So, as we have just seen, they are equally as vulnerable to a counter attack. Bale and Lennon can destroy this lot.

    I would love to meet Barca in the next round!!!! I wouldn't honestly care as much if we lost to them because if we lose to someone then it might aswell be the best. I reckon we could do Barca at the lane anyway!!! COME ON YOU SPURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sad fans for a sad squad, that was a definite hand by Arshavin.

    I would say Barca lost the match more than anything else, their subs were a bit strange to me. I think the commentary on the guardian said it best, if you are the best team in the world why are you afraid of anyone? Barca should have kept playing their style and scored a second away goal to put this tie out of reach.

    Thought crossed my mind. Given a draw against Arsenal, we could take them. . . . . Barca . . . . not as confident. Mental to be thinking about winning the bloody thing, haha.

    I'd much prefer us facing Barca in the semi-finals or the final. would be the peak of our CL run!

    I'm not too worried cause Barca will destroy the scum in Spain. I just feel sick they did that comeback and they're gonna rub that win so hard at least for 2 weeks now...

    Emirates empty already. They really are pathetic. If that was WHL it would still be bouncing.

    on the side now....

    Jack wilshere looks like a really really great player , he reminded me on modric in this game he played today vs barcelona he was really great.

    He will be the future playmaker in the england squad easily.

    I really can't see anyones train of thought on wanting Arsenal to go through. I'd much rather face Barca in the latter stages in a game that would have no pressure on our players as no-one expects them to win. While if we play Arsenal and lose thats THE REV RIPSHER!! torture

    That Wilshere lad looks a real talent, doesn't he? Plays with his head up all the time, comfortable on the ball. Damn shame he's a Gooner...

    Credit where it's due. We would have been turned over easily by this Barca side, humility from Pep at the end, great lad

    Barca were too THE REV RIPSHER!! complacent. Same as Milan. They thought they had won before the ball was kicked.

    No, when a team beats the best in the world you can't just write it off as nothing

    I would love to see that happening.

    Those Spanish commentators were so confident that they couldn't lose. They must be crying now. LOL

    What? BLASPHEMY!

    Lesson #1: it is NEVER ok to root for the goons.

    Lesson #2:Audere est Facere to dare it so do

    and how we are doing it; how can you say your scared of barca after what we just did to the reigning CL champs AND team sitting top of Serie A?


    US Spur my friend, the glory glory days have returned to the White half of North London, and after last night, I can say honestly:
    Bring any of ém on.

    WE OUT MARCHED MILAN OVER THEIR TURF AND WE OUT SANG THE SAN SIRO.

    LETS GO TO THE NOU CAMP
    (filled mainly with bandwagon tours may I add?) AND SHOW THOSE SPANISH BAST'AD'S THERES A NEW FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH!


    YID ARRRRRMMMMYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!

    :D I said a similar thing on Arsenal Mania! I hope we both get through - in fact I hope we both make it to the final, Arsenal VS Spurs would be one for the history books!
