A Hazard late late goal aside, pretty perfect weekend for Arsenal.

Fun game. Thought United played well despite the scoreline, could have easily gone a different way if Lukaku puts his early chance away.

Great win for arsenal. Big winners at the weekend. Midfield was off today despite pogba and Matic. Much to rwoodys delight we did not outperform our xg today. I don’t remember the chances for both but if we do bury our 2 or 3 I think it’s a draw if not a win but that’s all we created. Surprisingly Arsenal’s defense was resilient today. Leno was fantastic IMO. Shaka too.

I still think we finish above arsenal but top 4 is heating up. Well done Arsenal. Deserved.

This guy is overrated and even more overpriced. Kane made him look like he'd never seen a football before two seasons ago and now he's the most expensive defender in history."

For real though, I'm curious if his opinion has changed from August when he said he didn't think VVD would make a Spurs XI. Looking back at that discussion, my opinions --

Quote :
"Alisson > Lloris
Robertson=Davies
TAA=Trippier
VVD > Toby
Verts > Gomez/Lovren
Milner > Dier
Dembele > Henderson/Gini
Keita > Eriksen
Mane > Dele
Salah > Son
Kane > Firmino"


vs.

Quote :
"Lloris over Allison
Trippier over TAA
Davies over Robertson
Verts/Toby pairing over Gomez VVD
Kane over Firmino
Dele over Mane
Salah over Son
Keita over Dier
Moose over Henderson"


I will admit I was completely wrong on Keita > Eriksen but that's about it. Replace Milner for Fabinho and I'd also take Roberston over Davies now.

One of the reasons I still post in this wasteland aside from trolling wazza is I like to have an easy place to check in on my good/bad opinions of the past. It's weird how underwhelming the Mane transfer was to everyone on here, including Liverpool fans. Probably because of the Pogba deal happening so close but Mane is unplayable at the moment. I'm scared Real is going to come in with Coutinho level bids for him.

No country restrictions.

Pool v Juve
Barca v Ajax
United v Spurs
City v Porto

My predictions. Almost guaranteed at least one match up will be England clubs. I would hate to get the spurs though since they would be opening up their new stadium.

Ouch Spurs plays City 3 times in 11 days and 2 times at the Etihad in 4 days. Could be some fireworks in those matches.

It will be interesting to see United - Barcelona will be interesting to see how Ole sets up against the Barca attack.

I'd rather play CR7 and Juve than City personally.

I think we got the worst draw possible... again. Like always in this competition.

Liverpool skates... again. Like always in this competition.

Spurs fans are just mad because this will be another trophyless campaign. And they may not even finish top 4 because their owner refused to spend money.

lmao at the salt. City was the third worst draw possible. You're joking if you think Juve with Ronaldo in the knockouts and Barca with Messi are easier draws than Pep's city. lmao.

City is, unfortunately, the best team in the world. Or at least they are currently playing like it.

The dream of the all-English semis is dead.

Sets up nicely for another potential Messi v Ronaldo showdown in Madrid though.

I know you guys would love this narrative but that's simply not true. Barca and Juve are both better and they have the x factor. City may play well in the system that Pep has but they haven't even come close to making the CL final. Ronaldo smashes them in the semi I think.

Would love a Barca v Juve final if not United v Juve.

lol I know no one is going to give us a chance but I love this matchup. I did want a marquee matchup so happy with it. Get through this and confidence is sky high. If we can beat Barca we should take care of Pool IMO. Glad to have Pogba back. Ole is relishing this one and the lads should play with zero pressure. Just need to ensure Herrera, Pogba, Martial and Rash are fit. Barca's away form isn't great but they get by with their home form. Gonna need a nice smash and grab.

I would never not give United a chance. It will be interesting to see how they play Messi and company especially if Barca come in relatively healthy.

I do think City are going to eventually run into fatigue. They already won Carabao Cup in a shootout. They are challenging for the PL crown again, still in FA Cup. My guess is UEFA really wants the final to be Messi/Ronaldo in Madrid.

Agreed. Pace causes our defense a lot of struggle so Dembele is going to be massive for them too. Can't believe its been 8 years since we played Barca and 11 years since facing them in the knockouts. Hoping for another stunner from a Paul again. Exciting to be involved in the quarters though as its been a long time I feel (Moyes v Bayern with Fergies team?) and much rather this than Spurs, Ajax and Porto. Gotta beat the best eventually anyway.

Comparing the last time we played Barca I think we have a much better shot than the two finals. First is that I don't think this Barca team is as good as the ones we played in the finals but also because I think we have a better counter attack. They won't choke us off the ball like they did in 09 and 11 IMO. Pogba has to show up, this is what he wants to be involved in so go on an grab the chance son.

wazza is always going to underrate City because his stupid club blinders are always going to prevent it. He still thinks they shouldn't be considered one of the best PL teams ever after last year's complete domination and he still thinks Liverpool would be bottlers if they don't win this year, even if it means doing so with 90+ points.

Go back and dig up that post. I said last year's city team was in the top 5 but they don't crack the top 3. Which if you had ever won a treble or gone undefeated you would understand how difficult that is. One of the best? I already admitted it. Top 3 ever? No way.

Funny you're saying I have club blinders but it's pretty clear you're supporting this city narrative because you want to lose the title to the best PL team ever. We lost on GD mate, doesn't matter how many points you end up scoring at the end of the day you didn't win. No it's not bottling, that's a meme just like all the records that broke for Unuted after Fergie.

You can't be considered the best team in Europe because you beat up Schalke 10-2. What European pedigree does City have? None. City and Pool are def the harder draws but not ahead of Barca and Juve. This is simply your English blinders on.

Yes I said Barca was a tougher draw, does that mean I am not excited for it? Lmao. Not good enough? You are pretty much trolling. I said they weren't as good as the two teams that beat us 8 years ago. I love how that comparison turned into this Barca team is shite. Twisting words much?

Never change pool fans. A reasonable post by me turns into a shit show from you lot. Pretty much why no one wants pool to win the title.
