Arsenal 0 Villareal 0

Unrecognisable from the side that so recently outshone Juventus, Arsenal nevertheless scraped through to the European Cup Final last night. You have to feel sorry for Villareal who outplayed us so comprehensively it looked as if they had three players for every one of Arsenal's, in every area of the pitch.

Success in the Stade de France in three weeks, regardless of whether our opponents turn out to be Barcelona or Milan, will depend largely on whether the side which dazzled Juve at Highbury or the side that looked terrified against Villareal last night turns up.

Congratulations to all at Arsenal. Let's hope we do ourselves justice in Paris.
