Very pleased it's Dixon in for Townsend. That'll make the commentary significantly less annoying.
He keeps saying "tattle" though...

Pretty indecisive defending from Kompany for the goal.

Fucking "tattle".

I can't stand it when he says that.

Another Kompany mistake....when will people realise he's not nearly as good as the media make out. He's very passionate which is admirable but he makes far too many mistakes.

Arsenal will be England's only hope in the Champions League.

England has no hope.

That's great football but that defending was embarrassing. There was a good six or seven City players in there who didn't close down the cross and then just stood by to let Suarez slide in

Once again Pellegrini has got it wrong in Europe.

How can he still be persisting with a 442. There's just nothing there . It's so easy.

You play a 442 when you have four workhorses in midfield who can defend all match which Man City don't.

I tweeted at the start of the game playing 4-4-2 against Barca was stupid and I've proved to be right, of course...

Especially when one of your strikers is Dzeko who has very little work rate, so easy to play againt.

Barcelona could have had 4 or 5 and we are a quarter of the way through the tie.

Champagne football. Nobody plays the game like this mob. Sublime.

Another laughable Champions League performance from Man City, the poorest Barcelona side in years is still on a different planet in comparison.

Oh and Kompany, lol.

This is an astonishingly naive Champions League performance, shocking from Pellegrini.

Every season though, neither City or Arsenal seem to learn.

Erm, what have Arsenal had to learn? That we are a significantly inferior side to Barcelona/Bayern/Bayern? A lot of teams have been learning that lesson.

Liverpool didn't seem to learn much this CL campaign :box:

Malaga must be a decent side!

Barca have looked superb, but Man City have certainly done them a favour with their formation and set-up.

Look at Kompany. Oh god that second goal is so bad. Charges out like a hungover pub player on a Sunday morning, gets back in but then ball watching as Suarez strolls in behind him. The last thing you do when playing Barca and they are tapping it around your box is charge out like a buffoon and completely vacate your space. That's David Luiz defending I've just witnessed there from Kompany.
