    His quotes after the match are even weirder. Somehow anti-mourinho, pro-mourinho, and anti-United all in the same tweet.

    Jose: "I've sat in this chair twice before, with Porto - Man Utd out, with Real Madrid - Man Utd out, so this is nothing new for this football club."

    Also final standings going into the last day of the R16 Challenge! I haven't even looked at tie-breakers so right now it is just alphabetical. JCastle and Franch, you have the same exact prediction for Beskitas vs Bayern, you both also have Barcelona winning, but by different scores. Hopefully someone gets it so I don't have to calculate the tie breaker!

    1). Franch 6 (1)
    1). JCastle 6 (0)
    N/A). JonF7 6 (1)
    3). Dbijnagte 5 (1)
    3). Max 5 (3)
    3). RochesterAaron 5 (1)
    3). tehzachatak 5 (1)
    7). Kasher 4 (1)
    7). kevanb 4 (1)
    9). celticfutblclub 3 (1)
    10). Kraftster 2 (0)

    I'm pretty sure every time an EPL team gets eliminated, Fox Sports dies a little bit inside.

    so what will the media call it if Arsenal are able to hang on vs Milan? 'an even more season-saving win!'

    Probably something like "Wenger shows Mourinho how to win in Europe" or "Wenger: New European Specialist"

    When he gets completely exposed by Atleti in the final do you think that’s the last straw?

    What a fucking goal. Hope Milan can turn this around, would be hilarious.

    Edit: fuck, that's lame... spoke too soon.

    Great hit by Calhanoglu. Welbeck penalty is...questionable. Don't think there was much contact by Rodriguez but his arm being out and "grabbing" Welbeck on the shoulder made it look like a maybe.

    I'm not saying it is or it isn't. I'm just saying based on the replays I'm not sure of anything.

    100%.

    If it's not then it's clear Arsenal has lost its direction as a club.

    Not really too compelled by the Champions League draws.

    City v. Liverpool: Just hurts the league as whole getting a team to make a deep run. Should be good games, but we've seen it twice already this year.
    Juventus v. Real Madrid: That's a good one
    Sevilla v. Bayern: Yawn
    Barcelona v. Roma: Yawn

    In the far more important competition the "Best" 4 teams remaining were kept away from each other in the draw, so there's nothing too interesting. Arsenal having to go to Russia is a bummer, but CSKA is probably the bottom 2 team left in the tournament so it could be way worse.
