    Is losing such an integral part of your make up Danbert that you seriously are saying 'yes we lost better than you did'....

    When it comes to United and City I'm fairly neutral being an exiled Gooner, but I'd say City did lose better. United's group was very very easy, I'd be furious if Arsenal didn't qualify from that group. City first year in and a tough group.

    I can take lots of positives out of last nights game Iain, a clean sheet, we could have scored more than 2, Slavic looked very promising, Bayern may have rested 3 first choice players but barely got a sniff. In all seriousness at this stage of our development that is respectable. The experience will be invaluable in future.

    Danbert, you've spent half a billion quid and you're still an inconsequential regional football team with no real history of success. Manchester is famous all over the world for cotton, Best, Charlton and Law, the Smiths, Buzzcocks, Joy Division, John Cooper Clarke :w00t: Lowry etc etc but the best thing about your football team is still Bobby's scarf :closed:

    That was the original joke I read. Wonder why Danbert changed it.

    We've just got to learn to play against teams that play well on the counter attack and try different things at set pieces Tup.

    Premier league teams do not have players that are lethal in this type of situation (except maybe us and Spurs this season) and it's not something that English teams are strong at defending against in domestic or international football, as our teams are not used to it.

    Apart from that we're fine, this season and next (at least) is a learning process.

    Man U seem to have done quite well at it. Y'know, getting to three of the last four Champions League finals and all that. I'm by no means a Man United fan and I'd like to see City win the league this year as they have great players and play good football... but, they have duffed up in Europe. I'm not sure I buy the experience/learning thing in the Champions League that much, not with the caliber of players at top clubs these days. If City were good enough, they'd have got through.

    Every Man City player on the pitch last night has played European club football and international football for their country.

    A little old lady was walking past the Etihad Stadium this afternoon, struggling with all her christmas shopping..

    The chairman spots her and shouts out the window, "Can you manage love?"

    "Piss off!" she replied, "I don't want that hopeless job!"

    Re: Tonight's football thread

    Two things that made me laugh today.

    On Saturday in respect of the terrible happenings in Manchester, before kick off, the Premier League Games will have 1 minute of LAUGHTER!!! :w00t:

    Looking at the TV schedules of where you can watch your team in Europe over the Wnter :-
    Arsenal & Chelsea Sky & ITV
    Man U and Man C on C5
    Liverpool - ESPN Classics :thumbup:

    and finally just one point to make on the latest premier league standings. I think we have been here before - I'll give you a clue.
