    What are all you expecting in that match? I'm thinking Barca should win, but a draw wouldn't shock me. Unlike last year, Arsenal will have RVP in the lineup, plus Fabregas isn't dragging a broken leg around the pitch. Add in Puyol's absence for Barca and I'm guessing 2-1 or 3-2 to the Catalans or 2-2 going back to the Camp Nou.

    Any thoughts? Keys for Arsenal? Keys for Barca?

    Messi Hatrick...Villa Hatrick..Pedro Hatrick....don't be surprised if Valdes get's a few from the goal line!!

    Ahem.

    I'll say Barca will win comfortably and for some reason, I expect Walcott to be an epic fail.

    5-1 to Barca

    Messi x2 Pedro x1 Iniesta x2 & Nasri

    My Arsenal Supporting Colleagues reckon a 3-1 win to Arsenal.

    I shall be reporting my Arsenal Supporting Colleagues to my superiors because I am concerned that they may be smoking something illegal.

    I think Arsenal are in with a fair shout for a win at home, they have looked really good at times lately. And if anyone remembers Walcott gave them a few problems last year and he is a much improved player this time round. I'd say 2-1 to Arsenal.

    i want both teams to loose and get few red cards and injuries. Maybe some fight in first minute would be ideal (4 red cards and 3 injuries on each side...). I really hate Scum because they are scum, also started to hate Barca after last years game against Inter when they didn't let Inter celebrate their victory (Valdes grabing Mourinho, started watering grass...) so don't want their win either. Tho i would like Tottenham to get Barca in Champions league too see how good can we really be.

    ^ I think that was because Mourinho was celebrating in front of Barca fans though? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Either way...I can't wait to see the steamrolling tonight! RVP who?

    4-1 Barca

    It'll be tight first half but 2nd half the flood gates will open, the goons back line will not be able to cope with what Barca throw at them.

    I can't tell if you're joking or not, but due to the lack of atmosphere, the Emirates Stadium is jocularly referred to as "The Library".

    @Nixspur Actually, I was half joking. I had no idea that Arse's stadium is called The Library and seeing as I am a librarian, I'm a bit disgusted. To tell you the truth, I'm also a bit disappointed. I was totally prepared to uproot my wife and career and move to England if it turned out that England's libraries telecast football games.

    Wow. That 3 mins of possession was magical. Unbelievable. Arsenal fans cheered like they had scored when they got the ball back . . . . then gave it away again haha!! Barca are turning the style on.

    If the emirates/library was a prison and arsenal was a prisoner, barca is a 7 foot nosebreather that shares a cell with them who just learned to walk erect this morning and who is currently tearing them a new arsehole
