Barcelona must fall

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

It’s imperative that Barcelona fail to win tomorrow in their Champions League clash with Werder Bremen. This wouldn’t do much for Arsenal but it would give Thierry Henry reassurance that he made the right decision in the summer. It’s only natural that Henry might be thinking “what if” especially after Gunner losses of late and… Read more »

Has Jens Lehmann ever made a mistake?
