I think it highly unlikely that Messi would have waltzed through the Arsenal defence so easily if we had Sony in front of it and a fully fit Gallas partnering Vermaelen.
And with Fabregas, Van Persie and Arshavin up front Arsenal would have scored a lot more. Barcelona have an average defence and are over reliant on their star player. I think Inter, or even Moan United, could beat them.
The sad thing for Arsenal fans this morning is that it was clear this time last year that Arsenal needed a new striker and centre back. Ultimately Wenger’s caution has cost us the Premiership title and progress in the Champs league
