It's the same thing everytime, sarcastic claps then a thumbs up with a unimpressed look on his face. It was funny the first couple of times... I guess

Man City have been in the group of death twice in a row. Bayern, Napoli, Villarreal last year and even worse this year...all three other teams were fellow league champions in top 5-7 leagues.

And apparently, the champs of England are worse than the champs of Holland.

So only 2 EPL teams make it through for sure. Chelsea have a chance but I wouldn't bet on it. The league that has only 2 teams have all their teams make it to the next round go figure.

Where do you rank Eredivisie amongst the European leagues? BTW, how do you pronounce that? I've always wondered that for years.

Awful management by Manicini. 3 at the back, in form Tevez on the bench, taking Aguero off...terrible. I reckon he simply hasn't got the balls to succeed in the CL, so conservative.

It was more his reaction before and after the 5 minutes went up. He was just looking over the official's shoulder and than bam. The look on his face...priceless.

Real Madrid will be unseeded in the next round, some seeded team will get unlucky though this Madrid team is not unbeatable

Great CL campaign for the German clubs, though Bayern could play much better. Schalke still need to win away in Montpellier (most likely) to win the group unless Arsenal rest players in Athens

One could easily argue that the Bundesliga's best teams are better than the Premier League's best teams on current evidence. I don't have the energy to do it, but anyone could make a reasonable argument in favor of that.

I think Schalke are a good darkhorse candidate to win the CL, they have a pretty complete team, play good football and give up very few goals in the CL.

they have also been playing like **** in the last few weeks and might lose zwo important players in january. Think they could make the quarters though, if they don't get unlucky and draw Real Madrid ore something.

Eh, Schalke are a cut below Dortmund and Bayern. They're good at beating teams on their level or below them, but they struggle to punch above their weight. Often playing very conservatively, but conceding crucial goals while not having enough of the ball to strike themselves. They have the talent to beat a lot of teams that'll advance, but I don't think they can go more than one round further without great luck in their draw.

Do you really think they sell Huntelaar? I think they need him to qualify for the CL next year and are they going to get more than that 20-30 mil for him this winter? Cause without him Dortmund and Leverkusen will pass Schalke, leaving them fighting for 4th with a lot of teams that I'd favor over a Hunter-less Schalke. Guess it depends on who they can bring in to replace him, but man that's a huge risk that I'm not sure they benefit from taking.

I feel that a lot more with Ronaldo. Mourinho I just love. Wish he would start learning German so he could replace Jogi.
