Best game of the season so far really impressed with Arsenal cant wait for the camp nou match
It definitely lived up to the hype.
Incredible game and that arsenal can beat barcelona with 10 men is a testament to how good they are. Worst game fabregas has had all season. Incredible that people dont see how he never plays to win against barcelona. If he doesn't play at camp nou we have a fighting chance. Wilshere was incredible!
What about his assists and clever passes?
Jack cmon. Aside from the awesome assist fab made, awesome passes, don't forget that last year, he got the 2nd levelling goal for us, and then finished the game while playing with a broken leg. Get real. He's loves arsenal, quit with the barca fabregas crap
Man does it feel good. For 6 years almost every one kept mocking us and insulting us. Guess now we're finally a "serious" contender for the premier league and the champions league..
Bugger me, I seem to have lost my jaw...
Brilliant Brilliant Arsenal!!!!!!
And THAT'S why it's called the beautiful game.
Barca havent won 2 games whatt?? lol
Looking forward to next match already!
Barca will win this. I`m pretty sure!
The most beautiful match I've watched in years.............Great Victory by the Gunners.
YES BABY!! I am little bit Arsenal and Barcelona fan, so this was a great match and im happy with the Arsenal win! Last year it was Barca now Arsenal! Fair deal.. Cant wait next month (return)..
good game. nerve-racking Barcelona is a tough team to play with. Id love to see Arsenal beat them
This is football. 1 half was really good. And the last 20 min of 2 half. Great to see thoose two teams. Now its gonna be really exciting to see the next match. I think Arsenal will take it.
Pique is suspended from the second leg. And I think Arsenal will win for sure if Puyol does not recover. Great game from Arsenal!
why is he suspended?
He got a yellow in the game.
yellow cards I presume.
whether or not pique plays wont make a diff.. barca had no cb's last time and they still won... if arsenal play this well again they'll go thru though wilshere was deff mom
Yeah, but arsenal didn't have Fabregas, Arshavin, Gallas, Van Persie or Song for the return match.
he picked up yellow cards and got suspended
Walcott for my man of the match.
Agree. The youngster really showed offensive skills.
I would say Wilshere for man of the match or Szczesny. You have to give A LOT of credit to Szczesny.
for me Wilshere deserves a lot of credit kid is only 19 very bright future ahead for him
Yes! Really happy to come home and see this scoreline, I was surprised by how easily some people were writing off Arsenal. That being said, the first goal is going to be crucial in the next game. If Arsenal score then it's going to give Barcelona a mountain to climb but Barca a probably going to score at least once at home.
Think Barca will give the Gunner a harder game at home but really well played to Arsenal all the same. They showed great fight and stuck to there style threw out the game.
I Think we're the only team to actually beat barcelona and outplay them, atleast in the second half ofcourse! If they can replicate last night's perfomance for the remaining of the season. They'll probably end up winning the treble. That would be some end to a 6 year long trophy drought.
Someone who saw the match? Arsenal= Barca junior. Barca was clearly the best team. but they need to buy a new goalie.
Arsenal were good to breakdown, but Barca hade the groundplay and the chanses.
The goalie to arsenal was fantastic.
Cant wait to the rematch, Arsenal come to be ran over of Barca.
A new goalie???? ; Messi, Pedro and Villa. Thats good enough.
No team is "unbeatable". Especially if the other team is from the EPL. This season in particular, the EPL is arguably the toughest and most competitive league in the world. That's why it's so exciting.
Lol... people got excited last time and we all know what barca did to them in the second leg. Can see it easily happening again.
last time arsenal got hammered though at home though but this time they looked good and one against THE BEST TEAM IN THE WORLD. give credit where its due.
Barca has clearly the best squad in the world,but yesterday Arsenal showed how they can exploit Barca's weaknesses when Puyol is injured. So frustrated,didn't watch the game because of my Maths exam,anyway congrats Arsenal.
I missed few games at the world cup because of the bloody exams I know how it feels :P
