If Arsenal can get past Barca they will face the winner of Inter Milan and CSKA Moscow.

I don't get it. Surely the first team drawn should play home leg second? Anyways- I think we will do this. But we are up against Thierry Henry- sob!

I was trying to surpress my want for this to happen, but now it has, I'm extatic! I know we'll probably loose, but we DO have the quality to win. As long as we get Gallas back in time, and we turn up with the right attitude, we can do it. I'd love to see them at the Grove, and what a tie it will be for Cesc! If he can inspire us from the middle up against the Toure-Iniesta-Xavi axis it would really propel him into another level (yes, it is possible). Plus, if we loose with dignity, there's no shame, and it might help us focus on the league. I can't wait. And after all that, can I hust mention THIERRY!!!

I really hope Titi get's to play at our gaff. With regards to the draw, it could have been worse. Barca, much like ourselves don't know how to deviate from our style of play. So we'll be able to play our football, if we play better, we'll win, plain and simple, how football should be played. It's going to be a spectacle that's for sure. I'm also glad we get to play at home first, away in the second leg is an advantage if you ask me.

Don't agree at all Gunnerman- we got unlucky against Barca in that final. I feel hope- we'll get to play the game we want. If we can stop them getting an away goal at the Grove, I fancy us.

Ok, so there were at least 3 teams that we could have got that would have been much better and given us a better chance of going through that the REIGNING CHAMPIONS, but you don't agree that it's a crap draw? Okaaaaay. I can't wait for the game but I ain't hopeful.
