I don't want to sound xenophobic or anything, but it is quite a German trait. There is a confidence and "superiority complex" that Bayern seen to demonstrate.

I love it though. I wish Scottish people had that rather than their inherent "inferiority complex", it'd such a better country!
To all those, Over the years,
who have come to
Munich as strangers
and left as good friends.
Zum Wohl!

Mmm, this is pretty interesting. I had forgotten Basti has largely been missing in the two CL games Bayern lost.

I was actually busy someplace else. Not to mention I dont like to brag about my team no matter whatever victory they acheive. Time has taught me to be humble. I guess you can count all sensible Arsenal fans are like that.

Anyways, about the game, and sorry to bring this thread up so late, but I had to post anyways, I think this was the game I most enjoyed watching this season. Because the expectations are so low, you just live the moment. Arsenal played their hearts out and I was thoroughly enjoying the fact that we were doing this at Allianz Arena.

I think I said some posts ago that if Arsenal played their A game and Bayern didnt play their A game, Arsenal would beat Bayern. Most of you people didnt agree with me I guess. Well, what happened was actually what I was talking about. You cant say that Bayern were short on personnel as Schweini was out because so was Wilshere for us. Both are the lynchpins of their respective squads and so I thought the weakening was quite even and thus, the result was all the more glorious.

I would not waste this post dissecting everything right that Arsenal did and everything wrong that Bayern did, because frankly, both teams had their moments of glory and failure, and it was the grit which brought out Arsenal on top. I also remember saying that this tie would go to Bayern but would be a lot more close that being made out and behold! It came as close as it could get. Thats two in my bag.

The thing about this is this doesnt change a thing. I think Geoff Reeves in the after match interview tried to ask Jenkinson about another year without a trophy and Jenkinson just brushed him off. It was epic of Jenkinson but also shows that the media enjoys creating the negativity around Arsenal because it sells papers. And thus I dont fault anyone of you who were saying that Arsenal were the easiest draw you could have got and such things. I guess now that the media is potraying that you guys are gonna be beaten, we are even, somewhat :P

I think you guys deserve a clap for being fabulous hosts here and I really enjoyed engaging in some truly constructive discussions with you people. Bayern are an awesome team and a model for self sustainability for every club and I wish somewhere in the near future arsenal acheives what you have got now. But Arrsenal are a great club and for one great club beating another makes for great memories for their fans. I think I am going toremember this game for a long time, another in the long line of glorious defeats Arsenal have suffered. But whatever it was, it was great!
