When did this turn in to a conversation about Arsenal?
You guys here wonder why English football has lost a lot of sympathy lately? Look at the way Chelsea "plays", look at how fucking boring intra-English games are in the EC and you have your answer.
Defense wins championships and they held arguably the best team in the world with the best player on the planet to 0 goals for 180 minutes. No small feat. They should have buried their chances though.
But we all know English football has lost a lot of sympathy because of the money involved in it, has nothing to do with style of play. In fact, teams all over Europe try to emulate Arsenal and their flowing, attacking style.
