    No one kicked anyone in the chest, so I dont think there was any need to dish one out.

    There was a similar borderline incident towards the end. As per last time, the decision favoured the bigger team, as they usually do when they're borderline.

    See that doesn't work, Man Utd are clearly the biggest team in the world. We have a survey that proves it and everything :p

    Was it a survey of of manchester united fans asking 'who is the biggest team in the world'?

    Yep. I'm sorry but Neuer should have got a yellow. You can't run over to the ball and jump on it, preventing a restart, and get away with it. The ref was just wildly inconsistent throughout.

    It is an astonishing result for Arsenal, I thought we were going to get absolutely spanked. I did enjoy Bayern totally shitting it.
    FIFA need to sort it out, they won't though. Neuer's dive was ridiculous. Suspensions and proper injury time would sort it. Unfortunatley it's completely ingrained in the game. Any other European team would have done the same as Bayern last night.

    Strange game, superb scoreline, great defence but Arsenal's front 6 were useless.

    I think we might be overplaying the significance of time-wasting somewhat. It's annoying, but not that much of a game-changer.

    I do agree Neuer should have been booked, but that would have been sufficient.

    The funny thing about the Neuer incident is Koscielny got booked for trying to get the ball and Neuer got nothing.
  • Deleted user 14 March 2013 12:32:58
    Yeah, I laughed.

    How are we feeling about Wenger's "massive wake-up call to the Premier League" about how the rest of Europe has caught up with us?

    I think it's a load of bollocks tbh. Teams like Bayern and Madrid have always been able to knock us out, and Italy are still a bunch of wank.

    Arsenal waste time for about 90mins passing the ball sideways
  • Deleted user 14 March 2013 13:58:15
    I think he's full of shit as usual. It's a knockout competition and sometimes a few teams from one division get knocked out at once.

    Arsenal went out on away goals and Utd were pretty unluck anyway so it's not like they all went out like City.

    I think its less that other teams have got better, our teams have got worse.

    Domestically, week on week performances arent what they were as recently as a few years ago.

    I say our teams have got worse, our elite teams have got worse, the rest of the league has actually improved somewhat and are catching them.

    Inclined to agree. There was only really a 4 or 5 year period where English teams were dominating the latter stages of the champions league anyway. I mean this year United were knocked out early, but by a team who could easily make it to the final. Same with the arse. Last year, 3 out of 4 teams did really badly, but Chelsea won the thing.

    Its also, after this long, inevitable that other teams are going to catch up somewhat. There are a few teams in pretty poor leagues that are in the CL year in, year out and financially building on that and starting to compete.

    Utd should still be in the competition (IMO they would have won had the ref not sent Nani off) so all this talk of decline is a bit premature. If English clubs don't reach the later stages of the KO round for the next few years then I'll agree.

    Yeah and arsenal shouldnt have lost 3-1 in the previous tie, so that puts them through and if Chelsea hadnt got rid of RDM, they would still be in there, so thats three teams through to the last stages.

    Everythings fine, arsene.

    Apart from Man U who had a good chance of progressing, the other English teams have got worse or are in transition. Could even say Man U are slipping back into that, young squad, few players short. Chelsea have some squad coming through. they will be right back up there. Arsenal, no need to open that.

    Germany has always been strong and their great team philosophy and style of play is shining through. They always pop up with a new team, competitive league but players usually get picked up before they dominate.

    Spain will always be there and Madrid were never going to stay quiet forever. Enough talent to trouble anyone on the day.

    Never underestimate the Italians. Great, bad, who knows, works sometimes.

    Just deflection tactics, surely?

    All tasty ties. I'd certainly fancy Juve against Bayern, though.
