    Arsenal just made history! (Title change by popular demand)

    Congratulations to Arsenal football club, who on Tuesday Evening in their embarrassing defeat by Barcelona made Champions League history in the process:



    That damning fact has emerged for Arsene Wenger's side following their 3-1 defeat at Barcelona on Tuesday.

    Stats gurus Opta have kept detailed records for eight years and the Gunners have recorded a miserable new low.

    An Opta spokesman said: "There have been 981 Champions League games since 2003-04 and Arsenal are the first of 1,962 sides not to manage a shot of any form in a match since then."

    Meanwhile, Spurs, who've already qualified for the quarter finals, also made history as the first side ever to score 4 goals in 5 consecutive Champions League games.

    But anyhoo... this thread is not about Spurs... its the official lets all laugh at Arsenal thread.... which lets be fair, after 6 trophyless years and contunual bragging about "we're gonna win lots of cups this year" is long over due.

    It was the ref!! Barca didnt let us have any shots!! The crowd was too loud!! Van Persie was going to get us all ours shots!!!

    Wow - so informative (!) People will be remembering this piece of trivial sh*t forever. (_;)

    I remember when Celtic played Arsenal last season, the fans were calling us a disgrace for our "anti-football"! Oh how the great falls!

    Barcelona dominated. Best team to ever grace football. Bit hard for them to attack them with 10 men...

    Inafter tears, excuses

    Beating a team like barcelona 2-1, then loosing 3-1 with ten men is nothing to be ashamed of. Inter Milan parked the bus at the Nou Camp last season and ended up winning the Champions League.

    Plus only two other teams have beaten Barcelona this season, Hercules right at the start of the season and Real Betis in a meaningless 2nd leg quater final where Barcelona we're already 5 up from the first leg.

    They are a top-notch team and Arsenal can consider theirselves unlucky to have gone out in the fashion they did.

    Haters gonna hate.

    Even if we had won people would have said didn't deserve it etc we can't win (in b4 yeah we know that :p)

    Bring on saturday hopefully we shut some haters up by beating united

    Arsenal have disgraced English football going out in the fashion they did. They performed worse than any team I've seen visit the Nou Camp in the last two years of watching Spanish football regularly.

    Don't be daft, hell Real Madrid lost there 5-0 in November!

    My point is... That at 1-1 with 35 mins left and 11vs11 Arsenal stood a great chance of going through, especially considering they seem to have better stamina levels than Barcelona (1st leg late comeback to atest to this). Sometimes you need to grind out a result, and Arsenal we're well on their way to doing just that.

    Why are you hung up on the actual scoreline. Did you watch the Madrid game? At least they gave them one and played far far far better than Arsenal did.

    Trophies, games, world cups, champions league are all determined by scorelines. Tottenham played worse than Milan last night, but they don't care, why.... Because they won overall. Thats why I'm "Hungup" on scorelines.

    Yes I did watch the Barcelona Vs Madrid match, and Barcelona dominated that game as well. So not quite sure what your point is there.

    lol to grinding out a result..... 19 shots on goal and numerous incursions into the penalty area resulting in a last ditch tackle or stray pass, is more indicative of a team that just git lucky rather than stopping the opposition. And I certainly didnt see anything "beautiful" about the way Ars*nal played.

    I have never in my life seen a more one sided game. Have you? CL stats certainly bare that out.

    lol makes walter smiths "anti" football look like a drunk kevin keegan being 1 nil down with 5 mins to go.

    If the arsenal fans long for the glory days of free flowing football and shots at goal tune in tonight and watch the free flowing rangers take on psv.

    I think it probably best you look at the stats for those two games and see how they really went.

    I can give you a link that shows how many shots they had, passes made, possession details etc..... I'd be interested to see this 30 shot game.

    Link please.

    Typical Spurs fan, celebrating their own good achievement by trying to mock their rivals.

    Should celebrate whilst you have the chance. It's not like Arsenal have reached a Champions league Final ... oh wait

    Lol is that all dog_cop does? Post the same image over and over again to hide the fact his pathetic team have been spending big for 3 seasons now and can still barely qualify for the Champions League, whereas Chelsea won the league the season after Abramovich took over. I think he's even more desperate than that insomaniac lol. We'll let guv have his laughs now because the poor guy's going to depressed at the end of the season.
