Under Pressure?

The group stages of the Champions League have proven to be difficult for the English sides.

Even more so when you consider the only side that have gotten through to the knockout stages, so far, are Arsenal.

Now that`s the very same Arsenal who were thrashed at Old Trafford.

Our rivals, from across the city, are currently in need of a minor miracle to progress and our own hopes rest on United getting at least a draw in Basel.

As for Chelsea, well free-fall are the words that spring to mind.

But, the pressure of qualification looks to be getting to Sir Alex Ferguson.

At a press conference, held after the 2-2 draw with Benfica, Sir Alex was asked what his views were on the top two club sin the Premier League struggling to get to the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Instead of answering, the Scotsman gave one of those icy-glares before storming out of the interview!

Pressure, huge pressure we suspect!

Stroppy old git! "minor miracle"? City beating Munich at home and Napoli drawing at Villareal away would be a "minor miracle", would it? Odds are against us considering form but that's just a slight exaggeration there Red Boy. Your articles read more and more like tabloid thrash every day.

Bluedub, the point is not whether its a miracle or not, of course its an exaggeration! City going through the group would hardly qualify as a miracle in the biblical sense nor would it in the broader view of things. Thats not the point Red Boy is making, City is odds on going out of CL, why dont you comment on the actual message Red Boy is stating instead discussing the choice of words.. The fact is both Chelsea and City looks like not qualifying, ffs Bluedub go back to you own site.

Don't cry lads, it's alright, it's not that serious. I'm just saying Red Boy's exaggerating and that type of thing reminds me of tabloid journalism. You're getting very precious. U*d have to go and get an away win which is not a foregone conclusion. Chances are City could go through and U*d don't, not that I believe that scenario is likely but it could still happen.
