^Your run to the final that year was hilarious. Was it Madrid, Juventus and Villarreal you beat 1-0 over both legs? I remember all the Liverpool/Man U/Chelsea fans whinging about how dull it all was and thinking it was one of the funniest things I'd ever seen. And then Lehmann got sent off...
I still want another shot at Barca. I want to know if they could have beaten us 11 vs 11. Of course, our respective squads have gone in different directions since but we struggled to get in to the Champions League that season too.

Yeah, we got there because Arsene completely abandoned his principles to do it. It did not hurt that Juventus had three players sent off over the two legs, though, and Jens was playing as well as any goalkeeper I've ever seen.

There was that funny incident where a squirrel walked on to the pitch and he went in to mad rage at it for distracting him, that's how up for it he was.
