the arsenal got out of jail free.


Not a bad match, but not the best ever.

First half was better than the second.

The fact is that Arsenal were miles worse than Barcelona who totally overran them.

Sure Arsenal took their chances when Barcelona dropped their concentration for ten minutes or so. But there really is no comparison. Messi is just amazing.

However the comparison to the travails at Easter Road and pretty much anywhere else on Scotland’s embarrassing football soil was quite monstrous.
