that is such a pity, as I won't be home in time to catch it but appreciate the heads-up.

I like that the men Barca players are supporting the girls...its good to see Puyol in the team picture on the link....

1-0 Gooners half time but Barca must be wondering how they're 1-0 down tbh. Arsenal were chasing shadows for most of that half.

One noticeable difference between the two teams is Arsenals delivery from set pieces, like the corner they scored from. Waaay better than FCB.

I'll be very surprised though if FCB don't score in the second half.

After a mad dash home got time to see last 25 minutes or so - arsenal in total control and barca won't score- the Spanish crowd must be watching the same link at home -

Yes, they are now. To be fair i posted that at half time after they battered you in the first half for 30 mins before you scored from a great delivered corner. Arsenal hardly saw the ball! Then the early goal by "our" Jordan early in the 2nd half knocked the wind out of their sails ;)

Better finishing could have seen you 2 or 3 down and you're looking at a completely different game. Arsenal rode out the storm, scored then took control.

But i would watch the first 29 minutes to see how much Barca were in control before you get too cocky lol ;)

I must be watching a repeat, sloppy passing,and an easy time on the ball for arsenal.
Poor defending from the opposition.
Nobbs good goal . but no spark yet.
It must get better, please.

Aye, they were showing a repeat (highlights) straight after the game, is it still showing?

To back up what i said above i counted 3 very good chances from FCB then a few very good chances even when they went 1-0 down. Arsenal had 1 shot before they scored which was screwed wide.

I'm not insulting Arsenal i wanted them to win, i'm just pointing out FCB were very good, at least for half an hour  :D
