Manchester City, Monaco pick up in UCL after breathtaking first leg

It seems that Monaco seem to be good at finding striking talent and with the strong association between Arsene Wenger, Arsenal and Monaco , I think the Gunners would be in a better position then most to sign the 18 year old. The goal we conceded from a set-piece broke our tempo, our rhythm and our enthusiasm when we were on top. Why was the second half a problem with the defence? Should they combine for just three goals, they'll surpass the 11 goals that Real Madrid, the eventual champion, ... Read More
