    How the Dortmund / Arsenal match didn’t get on Fox Sports 1 is beyond me… another day of Standard Def programming…

    • Matt says:

      FOX cares about ratings only so they show the same 3-4 teams which will deliver them that. Its been like this from the beginning, they will show teams like Barca, Man U and Chelsea no matter who they play over the more favorable matchups

      • Marc L says:

        Well in fairness to them, Barca-Milan probably has more worldwide combined supporters than Arse-Dortmund. And is a pretty damn interesting matchup.

        But you are correct – so silly when you have Barca playing FC Nagorno-Karabakh or something as the televised match and you need to squint at some dodgy stream to see something far more interesting.

  2. Peter Quinn says:

    Beautiful goal by Ajax. Wait until you see the replay. Schone scored. The buildup was great.

  3. Peter Quinn says:

    Wow. It had to be Ramsey. What a year for him!

  4. Marc L says:

    Wow, didn’t see that coming at all!

    Credit to Arsenal for hanging in under that absolute siege and grabbing the lead.

    Hate to be Arsenal’s back line this next half hour. It will be coming fast and furious at them no doubt.

  5. Christopher Harris says:

    Game on in Dortmund. And it’s Ramsey who scores again.

    30 minutes to go for Arsenal to hang on. This should be a great ending.

    Dust I know you are out there and hating. Truth is, your club isn’t even really close to the Gunners, maybe they will come on fire later but there is nothing about Spurs right now that points to them being a contender.

    • Dust says:

      It’s a long season….

      Farsenal are flying high, and lucky for them they have Man Utd next! who couldn’t beat RS away or west brom at OT.

      Where are all the BPL haters that we’re saying (after last season) bundlesliga is better than BPL? German teams are just far superior in Europe, blah blah blah.

      Dortmund lost at home to a BPL club for the first time, Shalke got worked…

      I’m sure lewandowski comments about going to barren on the eve of the Farsenal game will get scrutinized buy Bild amongst others.

      Klopp not glowing about Farsenal, basically saying they were hanging on and got lucky with 1 goal…he’s obviously bitter they couldn’t score without it being offside.

      It’s a long season…
