      As an Arsenal, Sevilla, and Lyon fan, this post-season has been fun! Add in Man U losing makes it even sweeter. I don’t like City but I feel for Sterling. Overhated for sure.

      • as a neutral now with City’s loss, the Champion’s league semis will be interesting. City losing to Lyon has to be the biggest misstep of Pep’s tenure … i think he got lost in his own analytical head. some poor strikes too that couldn’t compensate for it.

      • Last time I made a prediction (Orlando on MLS returns cup) I was pretty squarely wrong. Undeterred, however, I will not be surprised by an all Teutonic final. I remain a steadfast PSG doubter.

        As for the farmer’s league, I do think Ligue 1 doesn’t get the respect it deserves and I’m glad City was spanked, but the Prem teams were playing a lot more frequent football to catch up with the rest of Europe. French and German teams have had light loads over the last month.

        Regardless, this is so clearly Munich’s tournament to lose. They should sail the rest of the way.

      • In Tanner We Trust says:

        Either way buckle up for a fun ride.

      • I’m killing it in the prediction business. You’ll find me later this month hosting the weather on Fox News.

      • In Tanner We Trust says:

        Wow in that case I’m glad you picked Munich over Lyon. Idk Lyon’s phrase, so I’ll just stick with “let’s go Lyon!”
