Well I watched the Madrid V Arsenal match and I have got to say just how poor Real Madrid were. Arsenal wern't exactly great either but by comparison they were still a lot better than Madrid. Bad news for Woodgate though, I hope he isn't out for too long.

Ballacks goal was very nice. Pity it wasn't enough to win the leg.

I watched the Madrid Arsenal game aswell, and Arsenal were very sound indeed, Madrid were really poor. Why did they play 5 in midfield at home in the Champions League, Robinho should have played more centrally.

Yeh I think Robinho should have played in the centre as Senderos is deffinately not good enough to cope with him. That's another thing, they simply didn't give it to Ronaldo enough when he had space in front of the Arsenal defence.

Werder Bremen was interesting....1-0 to werder, then 2-1 to Juve and then 3-2 !! :D

Del Horno sending off was harsh, but great header by Terry, Messi was quite good. :D

Was a very good match to watch, Messi was brilliant all game and then Ronaldinho turned on the style for the last 20-30 mins. Barcelona really dominated once Horno was off and they deserved their win.

It was a harsh sending off, should have been a yellow.

I think the commentators and pundits had no right to have a go at Messi for his 'acting' when Del Horno was doing the exact same thing right next to him, worse even as he stayed down for longer than Messi. Maybe the ref gave him a yellow card for the acting and a yellow card for the tackle? :D

That seems to be Robinho's position for Real, he has a license to come inside obiously but he also has the skill to take people on. I've seen him play a few times on that left hand side and he's done excellent and when he comes inside he always seems to score.

lol but Messi did look at the ref for a second then followed it by a double roll, head in hands.....but he was a class act :D

I kind of like Chelsea... they have the kind of administration that Corinthians here in Brazil has (with less money of course). But still... Barcelona will win and Real Madrid will crash and burn in ****.
