    Uneven bracket again, but still some good matchups.

    Historically, we have had Arsenal's number, but they are better than usual this year. Real vs. Man City...I don't like either of them, but I like Man City even less. I think Atletico and PSG will make it to the next round.

    France-Germany 0-2

    Best game by a German national team I have seen in many years.

    Finally Nagelsmann located his testicles. Just wondering why he made his moves so late. Wasted two games in November by repeating Flick's mistakes. Gotta hope he sticks with this squad now on Tuesday. Move Gündogan to the bench, maybe test Groß next to Kroos, not so sure about Havertz as Central Forward, but other than that our squad for the Euros should stand.

    Pretty exciting UCL evening. Bayern not good, but Arsenal kinda dumb. 50/50 in both battles on the second leg.

    Well, it was fun as long as it lasted. Too bad a corporation-backed club had to be the next in line. The players and even more their coach deserve it though.

    I'm happy for Bayer Leverkusen. Prefer them winning it to Dortmund or Leipzig.

    Bayern missed the boat on Haaland, who was right under their nose, now on Wirtz and Alonso.

    Once Uli came back and started running things his way, it wasn't as good anymore as it was when Kalle was in charge.

    That must have been one hell of a decades long streak of being 2nd.

    As much as I don't want Arse nal to win today (mostly because my friends that are fans are going to be even more insufferable than they already are), I hope they go through today for a couple of reasons.

    1, Seeing further proof that the Kane Curse is real and he goes another season trophy-less after clearly going to Bayern because he thought he'd get one right away. As fantastic of a player as he is, it's kind of funny to see this happen.

    2. I want the EPL to get that 5th ECL spot for next year.

    LMAO Bayern and Dortmund both play a horrendous season and still make it to the semis in the most prestigous competition.

    It's crazy how that seems to work out. Poor Arse nal now have the record for amount of times being knocked out by the same team (5 by Bayern).

    Even more crazy is the inevitableness of Real Madrid in this competition.
