I am unfortunately an Arsenal supporter. If Bayern doesn't score at least three, I'll be surprised. I agree in Bayern being that good. Hopefully Wilshere and Vermaalen are back healthy to help stop the bleeding a bit. Not too confident after that abysmal offensive performance against Blackburn.
Bayern is going to be a major force as the rounds progress. I'd be surprised if Arsenal pulled a result, but at least they're at home.
As an Arsenal fan I'm scared of what Bayern will do to us tomorrow, it could get ugly for my gunners
And even being at the Emirates doesn't really mean much, the German fans will make way more noise than the Arsenal supporters - it's a ghost ground. Being a Champions league match against one of the top clubs in Europe (and the world, really) will bring some more energy but I love the passion German fans have.
Wish they were still at Highbury, had so much more character as a stadium.
Highbury was my favourite stadium ever, I've been there twice to watch games, incredible atmosphere
I'm very, very jealous. Wasn't able to get over there before it closed. Only made one trip to London and Arsenal were away so I just got to see around the Emirates, etc. I watch the 03-04 highlight video more than I'd like to admit and just seeing the atmosphere throughout the ground is a joy.
Only question at this point to me is how bad can this get?
Like I said yesterday, I'd be surprised if Bayern don't score three. They probably win 4-1.
Gus Johnson calling the match!?!?
Any word on the USMNT yet? Who the next roster will be? We looked like ass last match.
WE ARE! And we will always be...
what a lucky goal on a corner that shouldn't have been given. Bayern needs to put Arsenal down now
Sulley Muntari makes it 2-0 Milan. What a stunner. Barca hasn't looked impressive all night.
Italians soccer's dead though right? Haha
(not a shot at you tdiddy, shot at media)
You know I love my Calcio. I was thrilled to see Milan perform so well.
Oh I know you do Diddy. I didn't get to see the game today (had practice) but was very happy to see the result and highlights. Muntari's goal was great.
Btw, got this from reading the BB, but apparently Balotelli said this in the post game interview: "I didn't participate today because of the laws of the CL but I do not know why Messi didn't participate."
Edit: My Quote button isn't working. Sites been on the fritz for me lately.

I like both teams in their respective Leauge but I was pulling for Milan.
That first gol was total bs however and changed the gm
Messi did play so maybe that was a directed insult
I think it was haha.
I think you said you were from Ohio, am I right? My friend played club in Cleveland and then eventually in Columbus. He says the cities aren't very friendly though since the Crew academy team is taking all their best players.
Balo was definitely issuing an insult...a pretty decent one at that.
Barca didn't create any chances despite controlling the ball 2/1. The first score decided the game though.

The Serie A showing well today with the Milan win over Barca.
In terms of the Serie A specifically, Roma continues their run of WTF decisions with a 1-0 win over a Juventus team that has been ON FIRE as of late.
I'm not sure its enough to say that this team plays to their level of competition, because if the opponent isn't world class they play like they deserve relegation. I'll take the result, and its great to see a good game for the squad for the first time since the first cup tie with Inter, but seriously? A caretaker coach, a team that had been struggling (to put it lightly) all of 2013, and then they go and beat Juve. I know I'm new at this, but this can't be normal.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
That's why Milan sat back basically conceding long shots and packing the box

Well Columbus Crew Jrs have a lot of teams and most of their teams are good . Lot of clubs make kids sign contract saying that they won't play other sports etc... Some clubs practice 5-6 times a week also.
I would Consider my kids joining that club at the u15 age if soccer is there main sport . My sons are 11,10 & 8. They play basketball and football and just last year quit playin baseball. I want them to decide what they want to do and I will help them chose wisely of course.
Im sure some aren't friendly about losing players to Crew but you can't lump a city to that. My oldest son when he was u9 played against a Columbus Crew Jr team from the east side in the Buckeye Cup in Newark, Ohio.he was on a local team from Coshocton Ohio a town of 10,000. They had more footskills and pulled on jerserys all day but our kids played a more direct style so our coach was out to win while they were out to devolp. That's why we joined Canton United they allow you to play multiple sports and practice 3x a week.they have professional coaches that devolp kids.
There is a lot of good clubs in Ohio so I would say your friends statement needs clarification I'm not sure what his point is?
