Manchester City 3-2 Bayern Munich

theguardian.com — The astonishing thing about this night is that it, once again, it exposed all Manchester City's shortcomings in Europe.

Arsène Wenger calls players naive after Arsenal lose to Manchester United

Roy Hodgson expects Scottish edge in England game

theguardian.com — It probably offers a small insight into what England can expect on their first visit to Scotland for 15 years that a member of their entourage from the last time they ventured north of the border could be found outside Celtic Park reminiscing about the wake-up call that had been reserved for Kevin Keegan's team.

Roy Hodgson admits England’s pitch problems after victory over Slovenia

theguardian.com — Perhaps the strangest moment of England's latest amble through this qualifying process came an hour or so after the final whistle, deep in the bowels of Wembley, as the Slovenia manager, Srecko Katanec, and his official spokesman, Matjaz Krajnik, tried to explain what had gone wrong with their preparations and, in the process, highlighted the bureaucracy of the people in Uefa blazers.
