With the current turn of events Arsenal's main rivals should now be considered Millwall, Barnsley and some of the other high profile Championship teams they will be playing next season!

When will Arsenal be back? They haven't won a trophy in 6 years! And if they don't spend A LOT of money quickly I think Arsenal will be over taken by the likes of Tottenham, Liverpool and Aston Villa and will stop competing in the Champions League which will make them fall further behind. I think Arsenal fans should get to grips with the gravity of the situation the club is in at the moment and if they don't act now the glory days will be nothing but a distant memory.

I think the Arsenal policy under Wenger has been honorable and deserves praise. They've played some of the best football in England, fluent and "romantic".
Nonetheless, if they don't quickly change their path, they will become a relic of the past, outplayed by the likes of Tottenham and Man City and FAR behind mighty Manchester United.

Arsenal need to buy a back 4 that have proved themselves in Europe or in the top leagues. Even someone like Roger Johnson or Chris Samba would do the trick. And if you're playing United away, why would you play some unproven young player making his debut in Centre Mid.

Tonight the Champion's League kicks off with one hell of a clash: FC Barcelona - AC Milan . I'm curious to see how Milan will fare in Camp Nou...

Think I'm going to watch Arsenal v Borussia Dortmund tonight, that will be a competitive game with not a lot between the sides and tomorrow I think I'll watch Manchester City v Napoli. Brilliant the Champion League proper is here!

Chelsea 2 - 0 Bayer Leverkusen, Racing Genk 0 - 0 Valencia, Borussia Dortmund 1 - 1 Arsenal, Olympiakos Piraeus 0 - 1 Marseille, APOEL Nicosia 2 - 1 Zenit St. Petersburg, FC Porto 2 - 1 Shakhtar Donetsk, Barcelona 2 - 2 AC Milan, Viktoria Plzen 1 - 1 BATE Borisov.

Watched the Chelsea game tonight, Mata was there best player by far he is getting better every time I watch him. Got told Arsenal deserved to get beat, and I seen Pato's goal for AC against Barca what a goal and it came about 30 seconds in to the game lol.

Who need Torres when you have David Luiz. He finishes like a striker!

So was Chelsea much better? How did Leverkusen play? Did they make any chance?

I watched our Belgian champions Genk tie against Valencia. Although Racing Genk were technically inferior, they played with a lot of courage and concentration.
