Tonight proves little.
So here we are, the back end of the Arsenal Barcelona tie that promised to give the world of football a sporting showcase. It appeared that the football gods would do everything to build this tie up, and then kill it with a series of unfortunate events.
Anyone who thinks that Barcelona tought us a lesson should go unnoticed as their opinion is obviously originating from a narrow mind not capable of analysing key variables and points within this game of football.
Take Messi, Xavi, Keita and Marquez out of that game and you will quickly begin to see a more true representation of what would of happened if both teams had suffered injuries to key players. Tonight, we missed Van Persie, Fabregas, Song, Arshavin and Gallas. Add them to our team and I can almost assure you that we would of seen a very different game.
Andy Gray, give it a rest will you? All I heard out of that mouth of yours was "little magician" "little genius" "that little man" and any other noun he could place after "little" to boost his reputation with the Argentine. Lionel Messi is great, but his dive in the first half and his cheap quick free-kick has given him a label which I won't forget.
Where do we go now? We forget about this tie now, we rally the troops and we push for that title.
Till next time gooners...
