Barcalona of course...they beat the bestl two teams in Europe..Milan and Chelsea...and Benfica (who removed Liverpool the defending champions)....well Arsenal supporters will say they beat Real Madrid and Juventus...Real Madrid may have the stars and a great attack but as we all know well they have the worst defence among the elite clubs..henry scored the goal so easily against them and looked like scoring so many at the Bernabeu...and then Juventus...Italian football is no more what it used to be...Lucianno (i hope thats his name) Moggi has bought everyone in Italy and weak indebted teams and referees are helping Juve...Moggi likes to beat weak and poor teams in Italy and they just managed to get past Bremen...they have a bunch of old slow coaches Emerson, Trezeguet, Thuram and they played with zlatan who seemed lost in a different sport...

Barca defeated Milan by far the best team in Italy and Chelsea the best in England...If any one of the two went on to win the trophy no one would be surprised...Arsenal do have a strong young side and they have nothing to lose...Barca have the established lot and nothing but the trophy will be good enough but the gunners can console themselves with the "learning process" word...

Key players for Barca (not talking about the stars) - Edmilson (who will probably be given the duty to mark Henry....like he did very well against Kaka)...Ineista (not sure about spelling) will be important he is the one who removed Andrea Pirlo out of the picture agaisnt Milan....

No matter what or who Barca come up with Arsenal have KING HENRY....(he is the best...deserves all the awards)
Best of luck to Both the teams...I cant select the winner ....let me see a few words of wisdom from the britons...lol

We deserve it more obviously Smile.

Tbh I'm getting sick of people trying to downplay our achievements by saying we have had an easy run. I find it hard to think of a harder run. Fair enough we had an easy group, but our knockout games have been far from simple. Real Madrid always have been and always will be the pinnacle of European football and people calling them past it and mediocre is just ridiculous. With players like Raul, Ronaldo, Cassilas, Zidane, Robinho and Beckham in the team, they don't just get beaten by any old team regardless of age of form. And surely it takes something decent to keep them scoreless for 180 minutes.
 Lets not forget that when we went to the Burnebeau, nobody gave us a chance. We were just coming off the back of one of our worst ever periods since the premiership began, we were something like 8th in the league, so many players out. A cricket score was expected, and personally I would have been happy to go back to highbury within 2 goals of Real. But we got the result, 1-0 at the Bernebeau. I don't care what anyone says, it was one of the greatest nights in Arsenal's history.

As for Juventus, they were the defending Serie A champions, and I believe are on the verge of retaining their title this season (that is if they have not already won it, i don't follow Serie A very closely). I think that surely says enough about the quality of them as an opposition. They were far from a weak team. And again, the likes of Zlatan and Nedved were kept scoreless.

Then it was onto Villareal, perhaps a more suprising semi finalist than us, but still we were heavily expected to not hold onto that 1-0 lead in the away leg, but again we kept the likes of Riquelme and Forlan (last season's top scorer in Europe) scoreless.

We have not exactly had it easy, especially considering the amount of injuries we have had. Mathieu Flamini, a rubbish midfielder has been a left back for most of the campaign for example.  Barcalone have also had a tough draw, but I don't think its fair to completely downplay our achievements.

Of course stars don't make a team. But you still can't say beating Real was easy. They are 2nd in La Liga afterall, a league many consider stronger than the premiership and we were about 8th when we played them. It just gets up my arse a bit that noone gave us a chance when we played them, and after we beat them those same people are saying, oh it was easym Real are no good anymore etc.
Not many teams go to the Bernebeau and win, let alone keep a clean sheet in the process. Just gets on my nerves a bit when people try to downplay the achievement of doing that. I know you weren't really doing that sanjani, but plenty of so called "experts" (and spurs fans of course) are.

I would put barca as favourites to win, as for deserving arsenal by far, they are the underdogs going into it and have turned there semi disappointing league season around by reaching the CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL people. Not it makes NO DIFFERENCE who they beat on the way. OR how that team played. If you make the final that's that. Winning is winning full stop. I want arsenal to win personally because i like the flair of the team and because they are british. Both teams will deserve the cup for getting this far, but arsenal get my support.

Milan by far the best team in Italy

Actually I'd dispute that claim. Juventus won the Serie A title last season, and are 3 points clear with 1 game to go this season, so they have all but retained it. 2 titles in a row, yet someone else is by far the best team? Go figure.

Alex you sound like as passionate an Arsenal fan as my big bro. I really hope they do it cause he'll be unlivable with otherwise. Especially if it means they lose Henry. So come on the Arsenal!
