    Arsenal vs. Barcelona.

    My heart tells me Arsenal will win, my head tells me Barca will thrash them.

    Nice matchup. It will be on in Hi Def TV here in the US.

    Hopefully Arsenal can continue the run of form. If Barca give them room, it should be an entertaining final.
     
  3. Think it will have as much drama/theatrics as last year's final?


    Prediction: Arsenal 2 - 1 Barcelona





    But I'm slightly biased :D

    What's the feeling from the UK on this Arsenal team? While they occasionally play breathtaking footy, they seem to get a alot of stick for having at most 1 Brit on the field.

    Will non Arsenal fans support them in the CL?

    Spurs fans will be supporting Barcelona, as an Arsenal win will stop them playing in the Champions League next season!!

    Arsenal are an English club and I've been to their ground and seen them play a few times - I will be rooting for them!

    It's good for our overal UEFA standing!

    All of England (apart from Spurs fans!) will be rooting for Arsenal to win it.

    I think its great that the teams that play the most beautiful attacking football are in the final against each other.

    Barca definitely for the win.I don't think United fans will be for the gunners either.

    for some odd reason, there are a TON of gunner supporters in NYC. every other bar seems to have their crest in the window in one form or other.

    Well put. I'm afraid to say that I would go with your prediction on this one.

    Actually I think Middlesborough must have a claim on this!! ;)

    So they won through to the UEFA Cuip final last night, after going 2 goals down within half an hour - meaning they needed 4 goals in the next hour - as had happened in the previous round :eek:

    But they did it!! Maccarone getting the 4th goal with 2 minutes to spare!!

    Like before, they brought on subs and ended up with 4 international strikers up front - Viduka,Hasselbaink,Yakubu and Maccarone...:)

    How about that for total football!!

    Whereas Arsenal have tended to pack the midfield and play with only Henry up front...:meh:

    Should be on ESPN or ESPN2 in both Standard Def and Hi Def.
     

  17. Last year it was on ESPN2 live, and an encore presentation on ESPN Classic that night. Probably will follow something similar this year, I think.


    quick edit: jk beat me to it.

    Well Barca did play attacking football, it just didn´t go in for them.

    I hope that Barcelona wins, they play such a beautiful football.
    I´m worried that Arsenal will drag this game down to a halt :(

    Barca! Barca! Barca!
     
  19. Where's Chelsea fit into all this?

    All I care about is that Chelsea finishes above West Ham.

    [Peter Griffin]uhm, yeah..[/Peter Griffin]

    You don´t have to worry about anything there. Chelsea is way above West Ham in the PL. The only title they will win this year.

    If you haven´t been watching, Chelsea got knocked out of the CL by Barcelona, then Liverpool (yay!) knocked Chelsea out of the FA cup in the semis.
