Arsenal Face HUGE Euro Clash

Arsenal Face HUGE Euro Clash

Arsenal a set to be handed a massive European tie after finishing second in their Champions League qualifying group.

The Gunners finished second despite finishing on 13 points (surely enough to finish top in any other season?) after Arsene Wenger gambled on squad rotation in order to keep players fresh for the busy December schedule.

However, even though changes were made, the players on the pitch should have been good enough to come away with a result, but that is now history.

What we now face is a mammoth clash with either Porto, Barcelona, Real Madrid (been there, done that), AC Milan or Inter Milan.

I firmly believe the Gunners are more than capable of beating any of those teams, indeed Real Madrid, Porto & Inter Milan have all fallen at the feet of the Gunners in recent times, and Barcelona were lucky to walk away with the title of Champions of Europe in 2005.

I wonder what the odds are on a Titi return?

Looking on the bright side Liverpool have an even more difficult time seen as they can't draw Porto, so that leaves them with all the top teams & Sevilla. I think its odds on we will draw Barca & funnily enough I think we stand more chance against them than some of the others.

I think I'd like AC Milan. Something different and all that. I know AG, that you would have prefered an easier tie (as most of us would) but doesn't the thought of facing one of these teams get the footballing juices flowing? Can't wait!!!

I think it'll do us a favour to face a better team. PSV were the worst side in the competition last year. I'd love to go back to Madrid and continue with the solly sombres. I've never been so p!ssed and happy.

Its certainly not going to be easy, and I hope we dont look at 2 seasons back and expect another win against one of the big teams because of that. I see that happening already though.

I want Barca, not just cos it's the only place I haven't been of the ties available, but I agree with AG, I think we stand a good chance of beating them. And the chances of a Titi return are slim, he's injured long term. Funnily enough that fate befalls a number of Wenger's sales. Though a club of the quality of Barca should realise that a sciatic injury spells persistent problems for a player's career.

R7- playing any of the major european teams is always exciting, but it means that should we qualify from the next game it will more than likely be massive teams all the way through, & whatever way you look at it our premier league title charge will probably suffer as a result.

AG - Why not take each game as it comes before worrying about our title challenge suffering? In the close-season you didnt even believe we could mount a title challenge, so just enjoy the ride dude!!
