Thing is, if they win the Europa, I’d absolutely swap our past 3 seasons for theirs!

Luckily, despite the massive drop off in quality when compared to the Champions League, there is still Atletico Madrid in the competition.

You'd want all those games of turgid football that Arsenal fans have had to sit through over and over? The turmoil over the manager? A board that doesn't listen? A half empty home ground? In fighting amongst fans?

I want a trophy, but I'm not sure chaos is the price I'm willing to pay.

Nervous they are gonna win the EL this year, would be a piss take if they win that and get CL football via that route like Utd did last year but can see it happening.

Lets hope we can win the FA Cup this year, if we finish trophyless and they win the EL we are not going to hear the end of it, they are a club in crisis but still winning more than us?

This will be like the Everton result. A decent game against a team that's a shadow of its former self and all their fans will think they've turned the corner again.

But this is the same team that lost at home to Otterfunds (or whatever they're called). I'd be really amazed if they managed to get to the final, let alone win the competition. After all, they've still got to get through another six games to win the thing.

There is a lot of shit in the tournament though, not like when we are in it.
only Atletico Madrid I reckon our only hope.
Yes they lost to oster...... but they wont do that, they know they need to win this tournament to get CL football. I god hope they don't but can see it already, its a bit like FA Cup last year when we saw the Semis, no chance for Arse and who won it ...... Arse!

If we win FA Cup and get top 4, I don't care if they win it but how painful it be if we dont

Meh. I'll worry about them winning it if they're in a good position going in to the return leg of the semis. This is a worse Arsenal than last year, one that gets turned over by lower league sides, bottom of the table sides and European pub teams, and then wimps out in finals. They are perfectly capable of losing to clubs other than Athletico I reckon.

Napoli went out in the last round and Dortmund have lost at home tonight as well.

Getting fewer and fewer good teams left in this competition, really getting nervous about them now. Would be so typical of them to sneak back into the CL after the disaster of a season they've had.

I wouldn't. These past three seasons we have established ourselves as Champions League club, a top one at that. A club that are laying the foundations to be able to compete on all fronts in the future.

I want to win a trophy but I don't want it to be a single night of glory only for us to sink back to 5th 7th whilst all of our players are picked off.

Milan 24 points off Juve. Different worlds. Only worrying thing is the goons have plenty of CL experience to fall back on against Europa teams
