Bring it on
What you think to that for a draw
bit early for a match thread, but thats a wicked tie.
i'm loving it.
I know it was but i got really exicted
Looks like we've got the tie most people wanted...
I'm not so sure tbh, they can easily show up on the day and absolutely trash us and I wouldn't be surprised if they did.
But still confident they can beat us, as bad as our defence is their's isn't up to much either so it'll be interesting.
I'm gonna see the lieks of Ronaldo...R. Carlos....Robinho, and hopefully Zidane live..woo! :mrgreen:
And we're hopefully gonna see the look on Baptista's face, when we destroy them :mrgreen:
Providing our stubborn old manager can bring in a couple of big guns in January im quite optimistic.
Arsenal vs Real will be great , fk the defence it will be all out attack
hehe going for a 23-18 agg score... to who? well thats anyones guess.
I've wanted us to play Madrid for years .... and now we can. Can't wait.
Also might be a good bit of persuasion for Wenger and Dein to get their chequebooks out come January...
i'v wanted to play madrid for years too. but that was when we were both good.
Isn't it great we are playing them the last year we are at Highbury.....
Better late than never
If this tie were being played 2 years ago, it would have all the hallmarks of a classic. It should still be an entertaining tie though.
btw Kent Gunner, I'm loving that avatar. Go Carlton, its your birthday!
FOOKIN BOOMTANG BABY!
Awesome tie, going to be some good football.
I hope Barcelona rape Chelsea, last year Chelsea beat them at the same stage, so this time we want a reverse scoreline. I usually support English sides in European competition, but Chelsea can ESAD, they're so lucky.
Anyway, should be two great games for us!
When will the matches take place?
Something like that .
It's a shame we never met Real Madrid before.. like 03-04 when both teams were very good, would have been an absolute classic match.
Still be very good though, two teams that can't defend for toffee going at it!
If Henry gets in the mood for this game he can really do something special and really cause Real Madrid's defence problems, really boost his rating in the process too because alot of eyes will be on this match. Same can be said for Ronaldo though I guess! Despite what people say about him, I think still he is one of the best in the world when he's in the mood.
Ties to be played 21/22 February and 7/8 March
Away First then last leg at Highbury
<-- thats how i'm feeling round about now
its good that its 2 months away. wenger has time to work on the strength and quality of the squad. more importantly, and maybe a little bit underestimated, he will need to get the 'togetherness' back into the team.
this will get locked.... post on the other thread.
No this is the thread for Arsenal vs real. Locked my ass.
A few initial reactions
The Madrid representatives sound more wary than David Dein and hopefully their fans too are wary,because here everyone is so excited.
