    Playing obtuse again, i see.

    Pressure of expectation. Not many, if any expected them to go through after the first leg. Was same last year against Milan.

    Yeah, there was clearly no pressure on Wenger or the team going into this match. What a dumb thing to say.

    I actually agree with him on this point. Being argumentative for the sake of it, you know exactly what he's saying and are just being a **** about it.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Well he can't score if he isnt playing you know.

    Classic Spurs though but not really good news for Arsenal if they go out.

    Haha, wasn't actually aware of that. Must admit, my comment was shamefully lifted from Facebook, not actually watching the game. Must just be in a more provocative mood than usual.

    Looks like they might get away with it now anyway.

    It was bizarre to see Spurs capitulate against such a rag-tag Inter side. Some really exciting players in that side but some shockers as well. Cracking game, first one I have caught since coming out to the US and the coverage was pretty good from Fox.

    Yeah, I don't want to do an "I told you so"*, but this years euro comp has shown what a lot of us has been saying for ages the Premiership has fallen behind, we used to have 4 very decent sides competing in Europe, we now have one, Man U, and they only have become decent since RVP joined. The bizarre Chelski win last year, rather masked our shortcomings.

    It's all cyclical though, no reason why the Prem shouldn't come back, they've got the money.

    Yeah and it no bad thing, was getting rather bored with the champions league a few years ago. Having a strong German league a resurgent Juventus and the odd superich club from elsewhere makes it all the more interesting.

    As you say though they financial power is still there. Was a decent discussion on it in Football Weekly, all Man City's fault accoring to Raphael Honigstein.

    AVB's tactic's were weird this game.

    Playing 2 up top which is a change from their usual style away when leading the tie 3-0 made no sense, especially With the 2 strikers Defoe and Adebayor being out of form.

    Then he played Demble on the right and also that high line was a mistake and he didn't rectify for that for ages in the game.
