    Benji is a bit of a barca, mainly when he is exited or when some one knocks the door.

    Is "Forza" a word in Spanish as well? All I know is "Forza Ferrari" which tells me "Forza" is an Italian word.

    It is a spanish word, but I'm having trouble figuring out exactly what Forza Barca is supposed to mean in english.

    Forzar is 'to force', but conjugates as fuerz- not forz-. Unless its the imperative (command), which might be Forza. Still having trouble making that make sense in english.

    NO PLEASE

    Here no please. Are the catalonians invaded this forum too?.

    I'm spanish, from Madrid, and I was supporting furiosly Arsenal. Now Barça has won we have to bear the anti-nationalist celebrations of the catalonians, like burning the spanish flag and shouting that they are a supreme civilization.

    The word "Forza" belongs to the weird catalonian language, which has nothing to do with spanish (Castellano). I wish Arsenal had won, but the akwards work of Leman (the goalie) made it impossible.

    Well, I only know castellano, so this may be why I couldn't figure it out. So how does it translate anyway?

    Well, when people (racing fans) say "Forza Ferrari", it sort of means "Strength to Ferrari" or something like that. It's not very well defined, really.

    I figured its not, hence the problem. Ok, yeah that makes sense.

    Arsenal didn't play well.

    I don't think Henry was right in saying the ref had a Barca shirt on - Eboue dived like a salmon to get the free-kick leading to Sol's goal.

    Henry should've tucked away the 3rd minute chance - Arsenal should've got him the ball more.

    Lehmann couldn't do anything but bring Eto (I think?) down - lucky the ref didn't award the goal too.

    Barca deserved to win.

    It was a bit like watching England vs Brazil - the nerves at knowing that at any time Ronaldinhio might waltzed through the defence and flick one past the keeper - on the international stage, he's in a different league from Henry.

    Brazil for the world cup - I wouldn't bet against it, but just maybe a header from Sol will decide it in July...

    The word Forza is neither spanish nor catalan. It's an italian word meaning "very much", or "strength to". The catalan word for the same expression is "força", hence it should be written "força barca"

    Aren't Forza the right-wing fans of Juve? (or is it Lazio?)

    I am not exactly a Barcalona fan, my favourite is Real Madrid. But I am glad Barcalona won because I don't like Arsenal!!! :biggrin: :tongue:

    Yeah - there's a big gap between 1 and 2 :wink:

    And it's still like watching some all-star team of the 90s when they play :tongue:
