That's a tough one, what with Juve being 10 points clear at the top of Serie A.
Still it's great to have a 'British' team left in the Champions League. :wink:

Yeah, Real are more English.

Should be interesting seeing Vieira back at Highbury.

I'm a big Arsenal fan but not much to brag about this season other than them doing well in the Champions League. They're going through their own youth movement... I *seriously* hope they can convince Henry to not bolt.

Should be a good match. If Arsenal can beat Real Madrid, I'm sure they can beat a side who just scraped past Werder Bremen on away goals.

I think Lyon could surprise AC Milan, they've been in good form in the French League and always pose a challenge. They demolished a quality PSV side the other night and AC Milan have slipped up in the past two seasons to teams you would expect them to comfortably beat.

Inter and Barca will probably be the other two semi-finalists.

Well, since they are rebuilding, why keep Henry? :D

What do you think of Leo Messi? Too bad he's Argentinian, wonderful player. Wonderful!

I think Wenger has dealt, is dealing with, Arsenal's rebuilding far better than say Ferguson at Man U. Ok, so Arsenal's form is patchy right now, but the young guys who are getting thrown in on a regular basis will be all the better for it in the future. Plus Wenger's no mug, in fact I think he's far more asute than any manager in the Premiership. Keeping Henry is obviously the key, but I think they'll be ok.

Having said all that I can't see them getting a result against Juve.

Juve should beat Arsenal. They are better in every facet of the game.

Too bad Milan and Barca can't meet in the final. For me, they are the two best sides in football.

Yes!

We get Fox Soccer Channel (it's $5 extra a month) which shows about 6 or so English league games each weekend plus some French, German, Italian, and Argentinian games. It's tremendous!

Tomorrow's Arsenal match is a pay-per-view match but it'll be on Fox Soccer later in the week for free.

We also get GolTV which shows La Liga, Serie A, UEFA Cup, etc games.

A great site which shows what's on TV in America and Canada is http://www.soccertv.com/.

Maybe because he's my favorite player. (Sorry, Bergkamp...)

It's the "New York Red Bulls"... a wholly owned subsidiary of "Red Bull New York"... which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Red Bull International...

Thanks for reminding me.
