Arsenal vs Barcelona FC First Leg Tie

Barcelona FC are already in London for tonight’s showdown which promises to be a great game. Can Cesc’s Arsenal outwit Barcelona to take a first leg lead in this thrilling Champions League draw. Barcelona will be using Queens Park Rangers ground to train on and not the Emirates stadium. How will Barcelona face Arsenal after leaving 2 points on the table against Manuel Preciado’s Sporting de Gijón the other day?

I’m sure Danni Alves who was left open at the back the other day will have done his homework so as to not leave any doors open against the Gunners. Any scrappy play by Barcelona will be severly punished by Arsenal who have Van Persie, Cesc and Nasri up front. Messi has said that the only player he fears is Theo Walcott – strange when the Gunners have the likes of Nasri who’s back from injury, Van Persie, Wilshere and Arshavin in the front lineup! Anyway it all looks good for a fantastic Champions League tie and lets hope it doesn’t end up like Milan and Tottenham last night.

After a nasty two footed tackle by Flamini (ex Arsenal) on Corluka which saw Corluka stretchered off, Gennaro Gattuso had a running with Spurs number two coach Joe Jordan which is being studied by the FIFA.

Gattuso grabbed Jordan by the throat during the game and afterwards added a head butt into the mix, too. Gattuso is an animal who deserves a decent fine along with team mate Flamini for deliberate and dangerous play. Disgraceful Gattuso was lucky that Joe Jordan (ex Milan by the way) didn’t knock him out. He just kept his head and let Gattuso get heated up. 10 points to big Joe as anyone who knows him well knows that he would have easily have knocked the stuffing out of pathetic Gattuso. Harry Redknap’s Tottenham won by a goal to nil which was very well deserved, too.

    although arsenal is a great team in European football and they have many big names in the persons of nasri, cse, and asarvin, but yet El-barca have more bigger names and quality players than they do.football in 21st century is difficult to predict like tottenham spur beating ac Milan in sansiro therefore arsenal can equally beat El-barca if they happened to make mistake in their defensing but without that there is no way seeing arsenal going through.there is a saying in Mandingo “an old cow do not spoil grass” and another one “two tortoise know where to bite each other when they are fighting”. arsenal should know that, barca is not those type of teams which defend when they go out but they instead play good and clean football either in nou camp or playing away. there is no one player that they rely on but they are all good players and any one of them can score a goal. please arsenal watch out any mistake could be dangerous for you.
