Barcelona 2-1 Arsenal...

This just after Sol Cambell's goalThis from my mate Simon: "Barca, ves a pendre pel cul, que et dongui pel cul!" (note the use of the present subjunctive in the final clause). Well put!

We were gutted. Barcelona scored twice in the last 14 minutes to beat an heroic 10-man Arsenal in the Champions League final in Paris last night. Sol Campbell's thumping header gave Arsenal a 37th minute lead - after goalkeeper Jens Lehmann had been sent off for bringing down Samuel Eto'o. I don't think there was one person watching who wanted Lehmann sent off and for the disallowed Barca goal not to stand. Refs, huh?

Oh well. Next year...

UPDATE: Ref regrets decision. Bit late now, love!
