Thursday, May 18, 2006Looks like it is the Spaniard's time to win. Alonso in the F1, Nadal on clay and this morning, Barcelona broke the heart of Gunners fans worldwide.
I set my alarm to wake up at 2.30 am but was too excited to get a real sleep. Arsenal looked doomed after Lehman was sent off. Despite playing with 10 men, Arsenal drew the first blood at 37th minute when Sol Campbell headed in a beautiful goal. Arsenal then tried to hold on to their slim lead for nearly 50 minutes until Eto'o flicked in the equalizer past Alumina, the sub keeper. Many, including Wenger thought this goal should not be allowed but then the Norwegian referee made a lot of "horrendous" decisions in the match . A few minutes later, Barca's supersub Juliano Belleti slotted in the winning goal. People in Terengganu would call this goal buoh ggarek because it was in the dying minutes of the match.
I share the sorrow with all the Arsenal fans. Hope the team will do better next year.
