Arsenal crash out of Champions League at draw stage

Last man back December 17, 2010 20

Arsenal fans today reacted with fury at the club’s elimination from the Champions League at the hands of Barcelona. Arsene Wenger’s men were roundly beaten just seconds after the draw was made.

“It’s a disgrace”, said Top Gooner from 7, The Internet. “I’ve seen some spineless displays in my time but this was the worst I’ve ever seen. Where was the fight, the spirit?”

His sentiments were echoed by AFC4Lifewhenwewin from Twittersville Avenue. “You could tell from the first minute it was going to be one of those nights. Once again Arsenal were spineless. Wenger out!”

“I agree”, said Bob Misery of the well-respected Doomblog website. “It’s as if Arsenal simply didn’t turn up. How can we have any faith in this team if we’ve been beaten so easily, so quickly? It’s clear that only the arrival of Hiddink or Rijkaard, backed up by the signings of Mertesacker, Jagielka, Shay Given and Joe Hart, as well as Kaka, a young Roberto Carlos, Ibrahim Affelay and Eden Hazard can save us now. Otherwise we’re going to playing in the SPL next season”.

The Gunners now face two meaningless games against Barcelona in February and March 2011 in which Lionel Messi will tear the Arsenal defence a ‘new one’. This is particularly harsh as Messi already tore Arsenal a new one back in April which still hasn’t healed properly.

    LOL

    Very Funny.

    Some of you must be that close to the players to know that they went into the games they lost thinking they had already won. They sure cant have been that dull since they were equal on points with Donetsk and there were still games to be played!

    AleeyGuns I doubt if Barca underestimate anyone that’s what makes them so good. Unlike us who go into games against teams like Braga thinking we’ve won our group already

    LOL, very good! They’ll still kill us, tho, you do know that, right? Hilarious to see some gooners actually say Barca had better “watch out.” Please let me know what drugs you’re taking so I can order some for myself.

    It’s pity how every passionate moron, senseless ignoramus writes rubbish on the net these days. No doubt Barca is a good team, But on a good day so is Arsenal. If Barca thinks it’s going to be as usual this time around, they should also be ready to in for a surprise. Underrate Arsenal at your own risk, Barca. This is football, not science.

    Just enjoy it for the football. It’s a game, after all. Barcelona better turn up.

    Lol, no fear. Barcelona are rubbish.

    oh Mr Sarcasm, what we’ll you say when it will come true and barca will spank us again?

    oh, i know: ‘In Arsene we trust!’. That’s everything you said for the last 5 years.
