Champions League 10/11 - Page 3

post #31 of 50
Ajax got their asses kicked by Real Madrid. I long for the days that ajax was able to dominate champions league games. Ball possession was ridiculously high for RM something like 90%.
The gap between clubs like ajax and the big clubs (premier league big 4), real and barca and maybe inter and acmilan is widening every year. Revenue from winning games is also calculated in a way that wil enhance this gap.
Quarter finalist from the premier league will earn more than a finalist from a small league. Way to reward sportive results uefa!!! fucking bunch of wankers.
Also an inter player headbutted a Twente player right on camera, but hey no after match inquiery no sir, not against a big team. If a twente player had headbutted an inter player it would have resulted in sanctions without a doubt.

Although I agree on the monetary part, I still don't think the difference on the pitch is that big. Just look at Inter, winners of last year, are probably going to be performing as any mid-tier team. The only difference was Mourinho.

As a gooner through and through, it really pains me that this arsenal team could win silverware with a solid #9, decent Defensive Mid and decent keeper. We are so close yet Wenger refuses to buy. The inevitable injury bug has hit again, hope it doesnt get worse against those fucking hacks tomorrow.

Arsenal is pretty much the second best Premier League team this year, Bundesliga hasn't got alot to offer except Bayern, Serie A's only competing team this year is Milan and Real Madrid is still looking for a miracle.

Bayern can be a real threat especially if robin and rubbery get back.Inter can definitely push this year too much more than Milan who r suffering at the back,u will see how Real will tear them a new one in group stages.Real have the best talent and best coach this time around,wouldn't be wise to bet against them.

Wenger winges again

Gareth Bale is magnificent! What an exciting final few minutes. Would have loved to see VdV out on the pitch as well, but I doubt that would have done much to quell that absolute embarrassment of a first half. Glad to see all the English clubs going through so far. Despite the Spurs' piss poor defending, I enjoyed watching their performance much more than what Man U put on. Seeing Sneijder and Coutinho play at such fluency and form was quite a sight as well. I love the look on Julio Cesar's face after Bale's excellent strikes. "r u srs??"

That Inter vs Tottenham game was unbelievable. Bale's stock rose significantly.

Were Arsenal a joke last night or what?

It was one of the worst tactical performances I've ever seen. Arsene Wenger should know better than to set his team up for that. They're not capable of playing that defensive style. Inter did it last year against Barcelona last year but they had the personnel to do it.

Spurs managed to do the job but Milan are not Barcelona. Anyway we are in the quarter finals and Arsenal are not and I suppose it's 7/1 we'll draw Barcelona who look hot favourites.

I rate Spurs chances against Barca better than Arsenal. Hard not to after that joke.

Spurs have a better central pair of defenders. Also, while Crouch did little, it did eat up tons of time having him knocking headers around all night. Boring but effective.

The long ball to Crouch is not the normal Spurs way but he seems to be very effective in Europe and in International matches as the players he is up against are not use to him. If we can have a fit Bale, Lennon and VdV they can all cause trouble against any opposition. Our defence has been fragile this year but mainly due to injuries, last year it was one of the best. Two of King, Woodgate, Dawson or Gallas should be good enough but this year it has mainly been Gallas plus one other and a good defence needs stability. Sandro seems to be coming good at last and Modric is one of the best. Gomes is hot and cold sometimes great sometimes horrible. Our forwards are not in top nick, none of them are scoring goals in a way that makes them a first pick but Crouch, Defoe and Pavliachenko are all good players one of the just need to hit a run of form. One difference from many Premier League clubs is that we have a decent squad and usually a bench of subs that can come on and make a difference.
