Robert Lewandowski vs. Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich? Don't believe it yet

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola is pleased with how many goals his side have been scoring of late, but still thinks they can get even better.

As I was researching a story last year on Robert Lewandowski's protracted transfer from Borussia Dortmund to Bayern Munich, I asked a well-placed source about rumours that Pep Guardiola didn't actually want the Polish striker.

"I can't tell you anything about that," came the answer. "Can't tell" because he didn't know, or "can't tell" because he didn't want to tell? You have to be careful about jumping to conclusions when faced with such ambivalence. I ignored the reply for the purpose of the...

English football's arrogance explains failure in Champions League, Europa

The ESPN FC crew give their take as to why some of the top Premier League clubs are struggling in European competition.

The TV revenues are skyrocketing; the transfer fees and wage bills will surely follow this summer. English football has never had it so good. But despite all their wealth, the Premier League's European representatives have endured a humiliating week. Is anyone really getting what they paid for?

In the Champions League, Liverpool were knocked out in the group stage, while Manchester City and Arsenal are unlikely to last much longer in the knockouts. Chelsea will be quietly satisfied with their away...

Dimitar Berbatov and Danny Welbeck remind Man Utd. what could have been

Arsenal's horrible defending sees them concede three goals at home to Monaco, putting them in a difficult situation heading into the second leg.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley goes position by position to critique Arsenal's 'shambolic' performance against Monaco.
Two former United players, Dimitar Berbatov and Danny Welbeck, were on opposite sides of the pitch when Arsenal faced Monaco, their performances a study in contrasting fortunes.

Dimitar Berbatov is not a man given to verbal communication.

"He was so shy, I spoke three sentences to him in five years," remembers his former Bayer Leverkusen teammate Hans-Jorg Butt. "But he was superb, one of the best players I ever played with. With his potential, he could have been one of the best players in the world."

Berbatov, then 21, reached the Champions League final with the German side in 2002. In 2009 and 2011, he reached the final again with Manchester United only to lose to Barcelona....

Arsenal players must be picked off the floor by Arsene Wenger

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti reacts to Arsenal's "embarrassing" 3-1 loss at home to Monaco.

Arsene Wenger laid into Arsenal's performance after his team were beaten 3-1 at home by Monaco in the UEFA Champions League last-16.
AS Monaco forward Dimitar Berbatov warns that Arsenal are not out of the tie despite Monaco's 3-1 first leg lead.
Arsene Wenger and his players reflect on their stunning 3-1 loss against AS Monaco.
Relive the most memorable moments from Wednesday's Champions League Round of 16 action, highlighted by Monaco's 3-1 win over Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger looked more devastated than angry, and no wonder. Defeats don't come much more painful than Arsenal's humiliating loss to Monaco at the Emirates.

It was supposed to be the Gunners' best chance of reaching the quarterfinals of the Champions League in five years.

Instead, it was one of Wenger's worst nights in Europe. Arsenal were taught a painful, cruel and hard lesson as Monaco gave them a European masterclass.

And it's hardly as if the French club are European superpowers in this competition....

Monaco trio, Paul Pogba, Luis Suarez headline the UCL Team of the Week

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti reacts to Arsenal's "embarrassing" 3-1 loss at home to Monaco.

With another wild week in the Champions League that sees the round of 16 first legs all complete, a trio from AS Monaco lead ESPN FC's Team of the Week:

Goalkeeper: Joe Hart, Manchester City

It might seem odd to include the goalkeeper from a team that lost and conceded two goals but were it not for Joe Hart, then Manchester City could be in even worse shape going into the second leg of their round of 16 tie with Barcelona. Hart not only had to contend with one of the most fearsome attacks...

Arsenal's Champions League loss more of the same failures for Arsene Wenger

Arsenal's horrible defending sees them concede three goals at home to Monaco, putting them in a difficult situation heading into the second leg.
Arsenal's horrible defending sees them concede three goals at home to put them in a difficult situation heading into the second leg.
Arsenal are on the verge of being eliminated in the Round of 16 in the Champions League following their 3-1 home defeat to Monaco.

If history repeating itself twice is farce, how do you describe this latest shambles from Arsenal?

This was not just a night that likely sets up a fifth successive elimination from the Champions League last-16 stage. It was the umpteenth time in which the team succumbed to the same old flaws, the same old stubbornness.

This is why Arsene Wenger has never won a continental trophy, let alone the Champions League. This is why it's hard to have any faith in his side ever becoming anything more than...
