    Only saw the highlights, but it really should have been all over before Blackburn got thier goal. Gervinho in particular had (another) shocker.

Don't think anyone's giving you much of a chance against Bayern, perhaps rightly so, but nobody gave us a chance against them in last season's final and we all know what happened there

    As for our FA Cup performance, after what happened to Everton and Arsenal was pretty relived to finally see us getting the job done against Brentford. Nice to see Lamps edging towards Bobby Tambling's record to. Know its been said a million times before, but I think its beyond crazy that we've not offered him a new deal yet.

    Feyenoord surprisingly lost to PEC Zwolle with 3-2. And since FC Twente played a 1-1 draw yesterday, PSV manages to stay 3 points ahead ahead of Ajax at the top of the league, and 6 points ahead of Feyenoord and FC Twente. Next week's match is gonna be VERY important now.

    Gervinho in an Arsenal shirt seems to be the problem, way too inconsistent for us and it's so frustrating to watch. You guys will play Man Utd in the quarter finals if you win against Middlesborough and Utd win tonight against Reading. Looks like a good game that.

    If we managed to beat Reading, then United should put Reading to the sword. Can't see it going any other way...

    And yes, Gervinho is poor, very poor.

    I don't expect PSV to win there to be honest. Feyenoord hasn't lost a home game in 2 years.

    We defended so well in that game, Jake Kean also pulled off some really top class saves. Getting Millwall in the next round is also good for us
    It was also good to see David Bentley back in a Rovers shirt, hopefully he can get back his form before he left.

    Going to watch the game Arsenal - Bayern Munich that's about to start. My money's on Bayern, they're just too strong for Arsenal at the moment.

    Pffft Arsenal 2-0 down against Bayern. I quite personally find it funny, but that's because I dislike Arsenal a fair bit.

    You sound like a Spurs fan :/

    Nightmare second goal conceded by us, awful defending. Don't see us coming back this leg or the next but I'm still hoping for a miracle second half. COYG!

    EDIT: We lost 3-1, slim chance to go through now. Gutted.

    Bayern Munich's "lazy" passing is so mesmerising to watch, it's wonderful. At least Arsenal fans can say they played football against Bayern Munich, unlike other English teams... Being a Stoke fan, I can hard talk about teams not playing "football..."

    Well played by Bayern Munich. I must admit, i was surprised Arsenal managed to score the 1-2 when they did. Tonight's Schalke 04 - Galatasaray. That's gonna be interesting.

    I don't think Schalke 04 stands a chance. Unless they can score goals by chance and manage to hold of Galatasaray, they will hand over the leg to Galatasaray. Galatasaray 2-0 Schalke 04 is my guess. I found it a but comedic for the Schalke coach to say about not being intimidated from the stadiums atmosphere due to seeing Piraeus earlier. The atmosphere of the 3 giants of Istanbul is the best in the world, I do not think some little experience at Piraeus will ease the intimidation for them.

    I've not watched Schalke this season but purely judging their slip in form, I think Galatasaray will pull through tonight.

    There's a lot of fallout at my dear old Arsenal. Losing to one of the best teams in Europe right now in Bayern Munich is not really too disappointing at all, it's just the Blackburn result, and the Bradford one earlier in the season, that is inexcusable. We need to get our act together and fast, finishing in the top four is now our minimum requirement. Thankfully even if the blasted Spurs are on form, Man City and Chelsea are on anything but consistent form so hopefully we can capitalize on their slip ups.

    I agree that the atmosphere in Turkey is impressive, some of the most intense supporting i've ever seen. Schalke will have a tough time in Istanbul but for them to win... It isn't impossible. Though i'd agree that Galatasary is more likely to win this match.

    AC Milan take a 2-0 lead over Barca, admittedly it's at home but it's still against Barca... I barely expected Milan to draw but maybe my expectations are just too high...

    Lovely chipped pass to Sully Mantari for the second. Let's go AC!

    Is Drogba or/both Snijder playing for Galatasary tonight?

    They both played, although they were over-shadowed by Burak Yılmaz (who scored his 7th goal in the CL this season).
    They need some time to adapt.

    Both sides missed some great chances, but Galatasaray could of get very confortable if they were lucky.
    All in all, I think Galatasaray will take this in Germany, they play better away.

    I wasn't expecting Milan to win 2-0. Good job on them.

    Wenger really does need to leave Arsenal as time and time again he just proves that he cannot take Arsenal any further when it comes to being a threat and winning trophies.

    If Arsenal don't finish in the Champions League places, they may have a better shot at the Europa League/UEFA Cup/UEFA League/whatever we call it now...

    Yes, but still this is a forgettable season for a Arsenal, it really disappointing that Arsenal are not trying to correct their mistakes since had occurred since years . I really hate that my friends always bash on me about Arsenal sucks. I can't tolerate that. To Wenger, I think it's time to pack up your bags. Your era has ended.

    Didn't expect Barca to lose 2-0. Milan did a fine job.

    Oh man up, that's football for you. Banter is just something that football fans consistently spew at each other, regardless of the teams involved.

    I hope personally that Wenger is the man to turn it round, he is Arsenal through and through and at least some of the players seem to want him to stay. Not everything can be pinned on bad management like common practice would have you believe. Although I will admit, if Wenger does leave, it will be a rather exciting time since ever since I've been an Arsenal supporter I've not known anything else but having Wenger as our manager. I could honestly not think of a preferred replacement though. Considering how out-of-nowhere Wenger himself came from when he was appointed, we may end up seeing more of the same thing.

    EDIT: Screw that, I know who I'd want as manager after Wenger! Only Dennis freakin' Bergkamp! Now THAT would be awesome.
