"Do Arsenal still have a chance having lost another 3 players?"

No. I still dont understand how they didnt get humped in the first leg :lol:

5-0 barca ...............

5-0 barca ...............



6-0 first 30 minutes

than barca would probably take their foot of the gas

Dont under estimate Arsenal

Firstly Barca are without Inestia, Ibra, Puyol and Pique. Marques has lost it in CB while Barca attacking options are limited Pedro new and inexperienced, Henry losing pace but on form in the last few weeks when ibra was out and Milito playing normaly.

I feel Arsenal will lose but they have a chance and would be great if Barca dropped out as a wake up call

SuperEd

2-1 arsenal

barring some sort of miracle then barca will do what they done to stuttgart in the last round and pump arsenal. For me having ibrahimovic out is a big bonus for barca as they look a far more fluid team without him so I'll be going for a 3 nil win.

If Plan A doesnt work; the beautiful game then what?
Plan B dont work with target man Ibra is out.

Come on guys, i wouldnt exactly use the word Lucky to describe Arsenal in the first 25 minutes or so, if it were Almunia just accidentally getting in the way of the shots id say he was lucky, but he moved this arms to stop the shots.

i think about 3.1 barca, and even if Arsenal do win, i dont think they will get past united (providing rooneys status)

well plan A seems to have served them pretty well over the last couple of seasons so I doubt it'll stop working because sol campbell is in the way.

Why did he sell eto then? It doesnt work all the time. All im saying is i do agree they play better this way but if all doesnt go well the IBRA can get some goal such as his against Arseanal

Come on u gunners

there playing Bojan Krkic upfront, he's arguably more on form than Ibra looking at the way he played and the quality of goals he scored in there last game.

I Suppose but does Bojan have what it takes against big teams? We will find out 2night

With Xavi-Iniesta back in the center on Barcelona's Midfield, I can see them winning comfortably
Barcelona 3-0 Arsenal.
Bojan
Messi
Iniesta

I've no idea but when Ibra is playing they still play the same way anyway. It's not as if they start pumping high balls at him in the last 20 mins and I'm pretty sure messi, henry bojan etc are all more than capable of scoring similar goals to ibra's from the 1st leg.

1-0 Arsenal, Bendtner to score in the last 10 mins :thumbsup:

Gonna go with 2or3-1 to Barcelona. Our defence will be iffy with either Campbell playing twice in 3 days or Silvestre playing at all, we have no cover with Song being out and our attacking options will be vastly reduced with Arshavin and Fabregas out...and also heard Rosicky is 50/50 too. Diaby and Bendtner need to step up, Clichy needs to get his head back in the game otherwise we'll see a load of balls coming in from the right again. Apart from that am optimistic! :-D Will be down the pub watching anyway though!

Yeah I know I'm an arsenal fan lol, so relieved when they scored against wolves the other day lol

Big arsenal fan but I just feel for 70 mins last week we didnt have a shot on goal, and I recon without arshavin et al, that period could be longer...

oh sorry lol, yeah me 2. Arsene needs to stress to the players more about being decisive and taking shots. No matter what any haters say, Arsenal are internationally renowned for beautiful football and great passing. all on a low budget too LOL

Walcott just has to go the world cup, Barca don't know how to handle his pace.

totally agree, how he's letting arsenal do a "stoke" to barca is a disgrace. maybe arsene has finally joined the big sam school of thought.
