Well done, Arsenal!

This young Somalilander, along with many other young men in the Horn of Africa, and indeed the rest of the world will be feeling a little sad that Arsenal did not manage to hang on and win the Champions League/European Cup last night. It was a great match and Arsenal played so well, but it seemed that they wqere playing 10 against 14 - the Barcelona side and the Norwegian referee and linesmen (I believe it was Norway's national day yesterday - so congratulations to them). Still, Arsenal can be proud of having played some of the best football ever seen in their way to the final and have changed everyone's perceptions of them being a boring team. Well done!

Nice to read that AT LEAST SOMEONE acknowledges the fact that, despite losing, Arsenal DID perform well last night. It’s always good to be positive :-) Hard luck anyway.

They played extremely well.... just like they did against Real Madrid and Juventus. The Dutch papers said they were surprised at how well Arsenal played but that was because they did not bother to cover any of the Arsenal games until the semi-finals against Villareal where Arsenal were not at their best.

It seems that with the Cruijff and Rijkaard connection, the Dutch media would like the Dutch to adopt Barcelona as THEIR club (once Ajax and PSV are knocked out, of course).
