    Warren Barton stating after the match that if Chelsea win the UCL them Mourinho would be the first to win 3 titles as a manager.

    errrrrrm, did he forget who won Last year?

      Pretty sure he said “with 3 different teams” but could be wrong.

    Another English team exposed on the big stage. You can’t be the “best league” in the world and only send maybe 1 team to the top 8.

      Yet again a failure to understand the concept of being the best league.

      Best league does not have to mean Best Teams. It means the most fun, most competitive, biggest mix of stars. Barca and Real are great but beyond about 5th the Spanish teams are pretty bad. Same in Germany, France and in Italy anyone being top one is struggling.

        Way to throw in a completely subjective criteria into the equation. Biggest mix of stars? Most fun, most competitive?

        If you can’t measure the quality of the teams on the field in a tournament than why bother playing. Should Arsenal have won because they have the biggest “mix of stars?” Man City, Man U, Arsenal, and Liverpool have all failed in recent years in the UCL. Only Chelsea made it past the semis, while Bundesliga and La Liga have been fantastic the last two seasons.

        La Liga is certainly a top heavy league, but even Sevilla won the Europa league last season and they are sixth.

        German teams below fifth? Like Leverkusen, who beat Atletico today 1-0. How about Dortmund, who breezed by Arsenal in group play? And Munich may win the league but one slip up and Wolfsburg is right there to make it interesting. Pretty much the same situation which Chelsea and City in the EPL.

        Watch some La Liga and try to come back with that. Top to bottom it is definitely better than EPL. The top is just that much better, and the bottom teams dont just bunker 11 men in their box like some Prem teams. Lower-half La Liga sides would play circles around the likes of Hull City.

        For what its worth, “midtable” Spanish sides dominate the Europa league.

        The quality of player produced in Spain is a class above what is produced in England.

    If this result holds, we found out today that Monaco are not as awful as previously advertised (hello, Mr. Berbatov, and welcome back to London; a world class player, still).

    We are also finding out that Arsenal is still a gutless, spineless Arsenal, a team for which finishing 4th in PL is the best they can hope for, year after year…

    With that, in the elite 8 of European football, there may be only 1 Premier League team standing, Chelsea, and this is by no means a guarantee. PSG is a very very dangerous side and at 1:1, the game is still in the balance.

      Hold on how can you call them gutless and spineless?
      I hate when armchair managers try to be psychologists. They tried but failed.
      You can’t honestly tell me that they lacked effort playing in the biggest club competition. What about City or even Liverpool’s pathetic exit?
      These guys are professionals they are trying their best out there. Things may not come off but to say that they are gutless and spineless is just wrong. Thatimplies lack of effort and fight. If they didn’t care I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t be on the field. Only when teams lose do the amateur psycho evaluations come out.
      I am not an Arsenal fan but I’d be happy if my team was still in the Champions league and so would 17 other premier league club fan bases.

        So City losing 2-1 to Barcelona is gutless and spineless but Arsenal losing 3-1 to freaking Monaco is professionals trying hard but failing?!

        Go home; you are drunk, or high, or delusional, or all 3.

        Sorry after rereading, i admit that i misunderstood your point.

      NBCSN does the same thing and I don’t like it there too.

      One would think that with everyone and their mate having handheld access to real-time scores an updates via their smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. that the same delivered via live screen would at least start going away.

      So much for TV executives paying attention to their target demographic.

    I love this. Knew people who don’t watch Monaco were taking them lightly. Very good defensively.

      Wicked deflection, but a deserved goal.

    How much is Qatar Airways paying FOX Sports to run a weather report? Couldn’t FOX think of something more useful for a paid ad than Rob Stone playing weatherman?
