I ran to the bathroom at 0-0, came back at 0-3. Erk.


Don't EVER do that again!

If the glass was the net, they would have a good 30 goals.

Such a shame. We were so close. Congrats to Bayern anyway.
 You will have a tough time with Juventus I feel. What are your thoughts on that draw?


It's just like Arsenal to have their best game and win of the season, and have it not matter.     :tounge:

So depressing to see us give up a 2 goal lead and concede a third one quickly. blah.


Excuse my soccer reference yet again, but this REALLY is like Arsenal. :(


Huskins is slower than Mertesacker.

Unbelievable that Real is already 15 Pts behind Barca.

I´m just watching them against Valencia. 5-0 after the first half.


And ManU just 1-1 against Tottenham, but still 5 Pts ahead of ManCity.


i´m really looking forward to this match-up i the Champions League.

My prediction: Real wins at home and ties the game in Old Trafford.

To be fair, we've been quite shocking in the fall and were beaten  by teams like Norwich, Swansea (who have actually been really good) and.. Bradford, who are like the equivalent of minor or even amateur leagues in America. ;) With Arsenal, it's so very difficult to predict. But it's always been that way. In 2011, Arsenal beat Barcelona, then lost the league cup final against a team who were relegated. So it's not really as straight-forward to make comparisons between the leagues.


That said, we (the English Premier League) have to get a hard look at ourselves and stop this madness, as it's getting out of hand. Couple of years ago, it was unthinkable that an English team would NOT make it out of the group. Heck, couple of years ago An English team reached at least a quarterfinal, most of the time a final. Now this is the 2nd year in a row where only 2 teams make it out (funnily enough, it's still Arsenal, despite poor domestic form and big player sales constantly ruining our club). And as much as I hate City, it's a piss take that the English champions don't even get into Europa League. Disgraceful.


I hope we can fly the English flag high, but we'll need a miracle to beat Bayern, but of course, if we get a ton of luck like Chelsea did, in a 2-legged tie, anything is possible. Lucky deflection, poor referee decision, whatever. Go through on away goals and never look back. Very small chance of that, but we'll see.


Yeah well that's sort-of true, but not completely. yes, there is a lot foreigners in the teams, but there is a lot of English players, too. Most of the big teams have a strong English spine, and a lot of the smaller teams sometimes are made up of basically mostly English players. For example, Man Utd have star player Wayne Rooney, in midfield they always had Scholes, Rio Ferdinand in defence, as well as now fresh young up and coming defenders Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, add to that Ashley Young in attack and you've got a nice English spine to the team. Chelsea have Ashley Cole, John Terry, Gary Cahill in defence. City have Joe Hart, starting GK, a couple of defenders like Joleon Lescott, Micah Richards and the like. Arsenal always were the team that have no Englishmen in it, but now it's changed and we have in the first XI defender Kieran Gibbs, midfielder Jack Wilshere (one of the brightest prospects in English youth now) and Theo Walcott up front. So I think those lads do get a nice chance to make it.


Thanks for your input really appreciated. It is nice to see the EPL cracking down on the amount of foreigners and providing more space for Englishmen. 


as for Man U versus Real Madrid


Well to be honest I wanted that matchup as the final game, they both hate each other and are absolutely loaded upfront. Man City to me is a club I wish nothing but the worst possible outcome, I hate them I want them gone this club has sold itself out, they have no identity, nothing to be proud of just a damn sheik trying to be the second Abramovic (spelling?).


I think Man U will win at home and get a draw in Estadio Bernabeo. Real always has the biggest stars but hardly a real team and their coach is an absolute joke,you don't bench a guy like Casilas after having one or two bad games since forever.

Well. What a start to my fan's career!



You're better off with Arsenal.  Good luck with Bayern Munich in a few weeks.

At least NHL should offer Center Ice for FREE for "whole" season.

This is a bad bad time to be a new hockey fan. It's borderline embarrassing how much of a circus this year has been so far.

Honestly, to the OP, I would go to best buy, or moviestop, or whatever well stocked dvd retail store there is around you and purchase the Red Wings box set. In my opinion, it includes the essentials of what a Red Wings fan should see, know, and remember. The battles between them and Colorado, the cup wins, and the most intense moments of Red Wings playoff history. Buy it, watch it, all of it, yes it's 5 cds two-sided but do it anyway, learn from it, love it. I went back and watched a few of those games again, remembered the knot in my stomach before a Wings/Avs regular season game and how much was on the line, and the intensity, and the passion.

Don't be discouraged by the events going on currently in the NHL. It's worth the wait in the long run.

A new fan during the lockout?

This pleases Gary Bettman.

I'd say don't get involved with the NHL, Gary Bettman likes to shut down the game every 7 years :lol:

I know that reading the dictionary is probably more exciting than this, but, it really is a must read for most fans. Unfortunately, it gets about as much attention as a cars owners manual.
