re: It's another Champions League week y'all!!


We actually have something like the third best goal differential because if we lose it's by one and have had a lot of multi goal wins

Most of our issues are being unable to break down bunkers and then defensive gaffes which actually seems to hurt more against defensive teams (lower teams that bunker/play for the win)

Probably a defensive concentration issue

Taking it further, Arsenal has the 3rd best goals against total at the moment as well. Only Chelsea and City have a better tally. Arsenal does not have a very sound defense, but they aren't a bunch of retards running around back there.

Bayern has a +50 goal differential and has only given up 1 goal away from home this year in the bundesliga.

I think most Arsenal fans understand the prowess of Bayern and fully expect to be beaten in both games. These are simply arguments to dispel the belief that Arsenal's D = 2012 New Orleans Saints.

I never said arsenal has a bad defense. Just relaying stats.

this may be Bayern's year. They seem to be in pretty good form.

I don't know, I might argue that they are just a bunch of skilled non-retards with ADD.

Just for the record, I was mostly speaking in jest. Although I do fully expect to score 1 goal in London. That's nothing against your D, bayern's attack just has a little too much firepower to be kept at bay for the full 90. Especially with gomez/robben (the two who sometimes have mental breakdowns in front of goal) riding bench this year.

Eh, it may be I agree, but I'm not gonna be upset if we don't make it to the finals or win. Things are pretty sketch depth wise with no Boateng or badstuber AND javi plus Dante sitting on yellows. If they get one tomorrow I'll be worried. Man, I really want to give Jupp a proper send off though.

I want Bayern to win the treble mostly because I want to see what Jupp would say.
