Manchester City is overrated. I wouldn't be surprised at all if they get bounced in the group stage again.

They've got a lot of depth. That's it.

Joe Hart is also nothing special. He's good at making saves look better than they are and his distribution is not exactly something to scream about.

He's probably the only good English goal keeper so he gets overrated.

Real Madrid played Khedira and Essien in front of Alonzo, and they got off that many shots. That's how badly City played.


Javi Garci might be great, for all I know..he slots right in, between the CB's. How is that helpful? This guy has sucked for a long while.

Dortmund.

Schalke.

Every win for Bundesliga in CL and EL digs a deeper hole for Serie A.

Hart is a very good keeper but yea his showmanship makes him rated higher than others who are comparable. He made some amazing saves though early in the game.

That game was just bananas though so exciting got me out my seat pacing around and yelling it was so much fun to watch.

It's a shame I missed it. Awesome ending.

What I sometimes enjoy is browsing the forums of losing teams. City fans are a bitter bunch.

Just wanted to give my opinions on the Madrid vs. City match. Marcelo and Di Maria just worked their asses off, and the game got sooo intense in the last 25 minutes. Ronaldo's goal just got me out of my seat. My dad was rooting for Man City while I was rooting for Madrid. Awesome game. Can't wait for tomorrow! DAVAY SPARTAKKK!

U telling me Maicon had a good game ? Not saying played Zaba any better but Maicon was by far the worst player yesterday.

and he had so many crucial saves last season in the last few games

ManCity played extremely sloppy at the defensive end; it seemed like they weren't even trying, or too tired perhaps. Not to discredit Real Madrid, but ManCity gave this game away.

Neuer is a far superior distributor of the ball. His arms are like cannons and have the accuracy of a sniper. His coming out of the goal skills and 1 on 1 skills are second to none. He's better at collecting crosses too. I also give him the edge on the line. Joe Hart likes to get beaten by long shots. Neuer is more athletic too.

I can't think of anything that Hart is better at than Neuer.

Oh yeah, and Neuer almost made ladyboy cry last season while Hart gives him a free hand out.
