Lewandowski from Bayern Munich has scored another hat trick.  He must be the most inform striker in Europe.  Bayern Munich remain undefeated this season.  Arsenal can't expect to get anything against them on their current form.

Even when we were winning I was peed off with all the fancy flicks and soft touches when they do not work. I just want this team to play like they used to. Playing defensive and tough works better for us.

There is a suggestion that for the 2016/2017 season there might be only three champions league places available for English teams to play for due to the points system that currently gives England an additional place. So although for this season the "top four" still has meaning, for the following season it might be a "top three" for champions league places.

It's actually a straight shoot out between the two countries this year, taking out the 11/12 season they're pretty much level, would imagine it will require Juventus to massively outperform all four English side which seems unlikely.

For a team that spends hundreds of millions you'd really expect them to have more skill and style that just get everyone behind the goal against decent opposition and hope for a stroke of luck/genius on the counter! English team's are playing dinosaur football, the problem is they are told it's the best league, style etc so i get the impression they think these teams will just role over. What usually happens is that they are just as good as them, then the managers just blame bad luck all the time. 

Some head's need to role as the performances for the money they've spent have to be the worst in Europe. 5 out of 6 losses against mainly dud teams bar Porto and Juventus is so poor.

I think it's a case of The Law of Diminishing Returns really. If you accept that Barca, Real and Bayern snatch the absolute best talent, then EPL clubs are paying way above odds for players who simply aren't that much better than the ones plying their trade in Europe. Okay, so not exactly the law of Diminishing Returns, but you get the drift.

I think you can call it more than a blip, that it's got to the stage, whereby we're now worried about coefficients. People used to laugh when people started to say coefficients, now it's a reality, thanks to this prolonged, woeful set of performances & results, that our top 4 have consistently produced & continue to churn out. Not sure we can safely say it will come back to prominence, if players like Suarez, Bale & many more exit the Premier League & are replaced by inferior players, who are unable to produce in the group stages of the Champions League.

I notice a lot of people within the English game just blindly still churn out it's the best league in the world or the most competitive just because they simply no next to nothing about other leagues. The level of knowledge from these "football pundits" when they sum up the CL highlights is incredibly bad, they pretty much know Bayern,Barca,Real and PSG and have absolutely no clue about the rest so don't even comment on the matches. 


http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/34373694

I mean you have Kilbane saying Man City will get out of their group easily when they have lost their first game at home and have two sides as good as them in the group who are both already on 3 points. You then have Lawrenson saying Man United will easily beat Wolfsburg, these things could happen but there is nothing more than blind faith and arrogance in these predictions! Only to blurt out the same drivel at the end when they inevietably go out early and blame it on the toughness and "no easy games of the premier league". I'll tell you if the big 3 played in the EPL they'd have plenty of easy games but the top teams are so mediocre they can lose to anyone. Not that it's unbelievably competitive.

I think it's a great league and watch it all the time but the media, fans and pundits really have to get their heads out the sand, Serie A dominated the 90s and broke world transfer records repeatedly, now look at it.

The Premier League being so strong throughout does make it harder for the top teams to flourish in Europe; the likes of Bayern, Barca, the Madrids, PSG and Juve have far more easy games to play than Chelsea or City.

Never just figured though that those top teams are just better than the English ones so can therefor dispose of them easier?! I mean if the league is so strong why do the teams do nothing in the Europa League either, to me it's just the constant excuses about physicality, depth whatever with no real proof to back it up over other leagues. Having said that if you play kick and rush football with a lot of running your naturally more tired, that's why the European teams place more emphasis on technique rather than trying to win with power and energy.
