---------------------


Barcelona 2-1 Arsenal
UEFA Champions League Final 2005-06

Despite losing this was a proud moment for our club being the first London team to reach the final.

Chelsea may have won it before us but who gives a shit since we got there first and laid the foundation for others to follow. We played awesome and ultimately let down by Almunia and the sending off. We held out so well for so long against the best team back then.

What's interesting watching this game nearly 8 years older and wiser i noticed Barca where playing a 'false 9' before Messi made it famous and even before Roma started to use it regularly. Ronadinho who had a better game than i thought at first would collect the ball in the final 30 and look to pass to the wide men or midfielders breaking through.

So different to see a Barca team without tiki taka, instead, skillful, quick powerful players with quick clever interchanges.

I'll try and find some more. It's so great to be back winning things, really shows how massive Saturday was for our club. Finals are special.

Almunia didn't do anything wrong.

Was beat at his near post for the first, was nutmegged for the second (albeit the shot was powerful).

Really should've saved the first, though.

I've never even been able to watch the highlights of this match, too painful.

That was one of the darkest days of my life - outside someone dying, I've never felt so down.

Arsenal vs Parma
Cup Winners Cup 1994 Final


Wasan't aware at the time, was only 4 years old and didn't follow football on TV, our last European Trophy. Shit, we really need to win the champions league!


Arsenal vs Newcastle
FA Cup Final 1998

Will never forget this game, Newcastle where really up for this, all the hype and that cock Tony Blair and his pre match interview. Was so happy when we won.

Arsenal vs Chelsea
FA Cup Final 2002

Arsenal vs Southampton
FA Cup Final 2003

Wasn't a classic performance but we had so much experience in Cup finals in this era, it was never in doubt.

Arsenal vs Manchester United
FA Cup Final 2005

We played like crap all game, never got going without our main man injured, not that United had the balls to finish anything. Was a nerve racking final but with our resolve we won on penalties
