Arsenal was well beaten. Bayern is good; very good. Arsenal is a mess. Hopefully it won't take us 50 years to win the title again.

Adam, are you such an Anglophile you would cheer for Arsenal? Not I. I'd rather see hell freeze. Not as bad as United, but close, especially since Wenger threw the FA Cup.

I would add scary good with Heynckes. Being a Real Madrid fan, i am worried of what Pep can do with this team, even more skills and physicality could really make them an unbeatable machine. OTOH, i am hoping chemistry is a b..tch and that Pep fails completely.

I'm betting they fail with Pep. Just a hunch. That team seems to do their best with a certain type of coach and I don't think Pep fits that bill. I hope I'm flat out wrong.

Feeling pretty good right now.
That said they better not pull what they did last year after running Arsenal off the field only to not play in the first half of the return leg. That won't work this time as they have a two not four goal cushion and Barca is a hell of a lot better than Arsenal.

No, the English in me cheers for the underdog always though. I'm ABU though, always. But I wanted Arsenal to win to shutup all the spoilt Arse fans who want Wenger out. I also want to see Wilshere do well. He's going to run our midfield internationally, and it's only good for England that he does well.

Don't count me among those who want Arsene out. Before he came to Arsenal, English football was boring, with nearly all playing Stoke City football. Long balls to nowhere. He brought in skilled players like Henry, Viera, Bergkamp, Pires, Fabregas, RVP who revolutionized the game. It would be a shame to see him leave now, with everything going so wrong. I'd rather see Kroenke leave - STAT.

Oh please. He will also be remembered for being the only EPL/BPL manager to have ever fielded a team (against Crystal Palace) with no English players.

I won't argue he was a great manager because his record speaks for itself. Unlike Ferguson though, he has not been able to keep it up. If Arsenal wants to keep paying him right into retirement, it's OK with me.

So? The English aren't very good. Big Grin
And I'm sure your Ruskie would probably offer him a job.

Graet game with MC & Chelsea. MC outplayed them throughout the match. For teh longetst time I figured this a tie and MU 14 pts ahead.

Now if we only dump Gus Johnson, this would be fun to listen to.

The only good thing about that game is City keeping pace with United, even though it's a long shot.

My list of grievances with the Chelsea performance is long. Ba was invisible. Mikel watched Toure score the first goal. Hazard needs to learn to come back and help the defence.

Great stop by Hart on the Lampard penalty.

Agree re the effort. Looked like they had no plan, the play was ragged, their pace of play was slow.

I think we were the first side to field a non-English team...Vialli did it...?

You sure? I suspect your knowledge of the clubs history is greater than mine, but I don't recall that. And I seem to remember reading that distinction about Wenger. Not just the starting 11, including the bench.

Oh...maybe including the bench, then. I just remember getting a lot of stick when Vialli started 11 without an Englishman...I think Wise was injured or something...anyway...it's the way the game's gone...so many teams have done it now.

From Wikipedia

"Under Vialli, Chelsea would become the first side in English football to field a starting 11 composed entirely of foreign players, highlighting the increasing internationalization of the game."

Chelsea must have had a bloke on the bench. Wink

Bale's leg is a weapon. Bow Spurs are not going to be able to afford to keep him next year.

He's on quite a roll. Dare say that the Ruskie will offer millions and tampering charges be levelled? Too bad FFP hasn't been invoked.

I was glad I went to the pub after work to watch it. It was almost the Joe Cole show, with legend Joey doing his best to help out his fellow Blues...then Bale.

Wow. What a goal....8 out of Spurs' last 10...every game in a row it seems...he's on Messi form right now. Wonder where he'll be off to in the summer...most think Spain.

It's also nice to see he's cut out the diving and whining (touch wood)...he was fouled right before the goal and the old Bale would have rolled around, but he got up, ref waved advantage, and SMACK!!!
