    Well that kills off Arsenal then.

    In other news Tranmere losing again. Wheels well and truly falling off there and in the Championship Wolves just gone behind after leading at Barnsley. In the bottom 3 if that stays the same having played more games than the other sides around them.

Perhaps Wenger could manage to show a bit more grace tonight than he managed yesterday or after the Blackburn loss. It's becoming so obvious that his time has been and gone that it's just painful.
    They were this good last season, it's just a shame that Mario Gomez is a clown otherwise they'd have destroyed Chelsea in the CL final.

    It's between Bayern and Dortmund for the mantle of 2nd best on the continent behind Barcelona IMO. Bayern have the edge because Dortmund seem incapable of not conceding away from home.

    Not sure what you were expecting; Bayern came out the traps quickly, got a 2 goal lead and controlled the game from there on.

    Ronnie Moore will be on his way soon haha...could drop out of the playoffs if Swindon and Brentford win their games in hand. In other news, we are out of the relegation zone

    Can hardly see where the next goal is coming from. Down to the bare bones and its showing. Don't know whether it was Dav or Grecian who said a few injuries would kill us but that's what's happened.

    Massive turnaround needed. Reckon another 20 points will get us a top six spot but that's going to be easier said than done. Only four of our side tonight were part of the eleven that swept all before them in the autumn and it showed.

    Not much blame lies with Ronnie though, alas we need to make big changes on Saturday. What though, I just don't know.

    It's about 15 points of edge in the Bundesliga, isn't it?

    Anyway, the big question now is not if - but when and how - the Wenger era will end.

    I think in a one on one battle between Dortmund and Bayern it's pretty close. Dortmund might even just shade it. Bayern's 15 point lead is down to them being an absolute machine and Dortmund throwing away daft points.

    I'll miss that as Im in Barcelona for a stag do. So yes we probably will win.

    If we lose on Saturday then top 6 will be a bonus. If we win then I'll think we're going to win the league again. I ****ing hate football.

    Arsenal just beaten by a much better team this evening. Gulf in quality between the two sides was so obvious.

    Still annoying though, because despite the difference in quality between the two sides, the goals Arsenal conceded were again all terrible and preventable. Though Kroos' finish on the first was excellent.

    Thought Wilshere was excellent though. The only player who looked remotely threatening.

    Also, Mertesacker has to go. I even think he's improved quite a lot, but so many goals seem to be leaked because of his totally static defending. Just no excuse for a pro footballer to be caught just standing around as much as he is.

    That's remarkable, because I suspect you'd be impressed by a shiny object you found on the floor, you braindead ****.

    I strongly disagree with the notion that Dortmund are close to the second best team in Europe.
    The one, the only CW Black

        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    I see some fans taking out their frustrations. lol.

    Would be quite cool to see something like this next round -

    Bayern
    PSG
    Juventus
    Barcelona
    United
    Porto
    Shakthar
    Galatasaray.

    Different 8 teams from different countries and all favorites to win their respective leagues.
