Arsenal have been handed quite a boost in both their Premier League and Champions League hopes.

The current top two in England’s top flight have been dumped out of Europe’s elite competition after Sir Alex Ferguson’s men succumbed to a 2-1 defeat at Basel in a crunch match while Napoli’s win over Villarreal ensured that Man. City’s 2-0 victory over Bayern Munich did not stop them from bowing out of the Champions League.

And to add to the woes of the Manchester rivals, both Ferguson and Mancini’s men will now be playing on Thursday nights in the Europa League. That scenario seemed unthinkable for Manchester United who were handed quite a favourable draw for the group stages back in August.

Manchester City, who were dealt an uneasy group on paper along with Arsenal, exit with their heads held up after a strong challenge which saw them fail by only a tiny margin in the end.

Therefore, flying the English flag in the Champions League this season will be London clubs Arsenal and Chelsea who both topped their groups to advance in the competition.

Another conclusion to draw from today’s results is that Arsenal’s record of qualifications to the Champions League’s knock-out stage for 12 straight seasons is hardly a cheap one.

  1. i guess that Judas Nasri and Judas Clichy will have to wait at least another year for a champions league medal. Shame.

  2. Shame for utd’s prawn sandwich noshers.. still the flights from Basle to London are fairly regular and they should be in their own beds within hours.. just as well they haven’t got to travel to Manchester!

  9. If the london teams cud qualify for the KO stages of CL yl the rich clubs in manchester try their best in europa, the likes of Cli$hy and Na$ri wud eat their words descibing arsenal as a team incapable of winning trophies. I think this is a signal of the begining of the end for mega rich man $hity.

  14. Shity…$hity…. MONAY CANT BUY YOU HISTORY!!!!!!!!!

    ManUre….terrible. Absolutely terrible. You are fast becoming the ‘non-benchmark’!!!!

  15. Manchester shitty fucked themselves by buying fucked up uninspired players, manure/biogas inserted an extra finger in their arse by qualifying with shitty. They will be excreted from europa. What a shame!

  16. I`ve no grouse with Fabregas – but join me in wishing Nasri and Gichy all the success gained by others who jumped ship, to win more fame than we promised. A fe w who spring to mind include Hurd; Thomas; Firmani; Helb and that great loser – Overmars. They brought the kiss of death – from their seats on benches at their unfortunate employers. Meanwhile, their replacements included Pires and Henry. Maybe, AW will find replcements of such calibre this time. (sad joke).
