**** Official Champions League Thread 2015/16 ****

Recommended Posts


The City game was pretty good. End to end and plenty of drama and incident. Not much skill on display though. The bawbag assistant ref who along with the linesman couldn't see Demichelis header was a foot in the goal was surreal, thankfully a wee bit of a lucky deflection from Otamendi's shot meant that their incompetence didn't matter..Really disjointed City were tonight, but that fightback victory could prove vital, and a real pick them up after some awful displays recently.. .

So a Team from Manchester and some mob from Greater Manchester restore some Pride in English Football tonight..... :uk::thumbup:

If any of the English teams manage to get through the group stages, they'll be out on their arse next round.

What went wrong with "the greatest and wealthiest league in the world"?

Why have Messi, Zidane and Ronaldinho never played there?

In my opinion there is two main problems.

1) Not enough English players playing in the BPL. If you look at the likes of Barca, Real and Bayern, there's always been a strong core of players who's nationality is the same as the country they play in.

2) English teams are tactically naive in Europe. They don't know how to be adapt and be difficult to beat. They think they can just go out and play the way they do in the BPL but they end up getting punished alot more for their mistakes by more tactically aware, better organised teams.

Because the best foreigners are scared of the physically of the English game. That's the only plausible reason.
