"I know Milan very well: they play very well as far as collective work is concerned, but I do not think they are up to the task of winning the trophy," Wenger wrote in his column for Eurosport.

"They have some weak points, although they have a player with the quality of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Robinho can also be very dangerous in attack, but 'Ibra' can score a lot of goals on a good day.

"Milan know what to do to win at San Siro: I hope the condition of their pitch has improved because against us it was a disaster!

"Everyone looks at Milan with respect, but I think they have no chance of winning the Champions League."

This is Wenger's blog.

Don't see any anti-Milan propaganda there.

The last article is about Cronaldo going against Messi, if you're needing wank material.

If it turns out to be hogwash (possible) I'll just edit this thread (and post) to make it look like fail.com is shat.

Venger wrote:The first game against Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday will be an opportunity to put ourselves on the road to qualification.

We have to score at least one goal, and play in a positive way in Milan.

We will not remain deep in defence and will do our best to score goals - as we always have to against Milan.

Milan have such know-how in the Champions League because they have played in this competition for years now. They also have many exceptional talents at their disposal such as Ibrahimovic, Robinho and Pato in attack.

We will need a big defensive performance - and not forget to score goals.

We played them in the second leg of a last-16 tie in 2008, winning 2-0 to reach the quarter-finals.

I remember that it was an accomplished game from us, but above all one where we played without complexes.

We were confident in our strength and our game - and we must rely on this once more this week.

We have to go to Milan with the conviction that if we play our own game, it will pay off.

That is what we did last time.
That's his Milan article. Nothing about Milan not going all the way.

Typical troll.com sensationalism and outright lies.

Dont see that much wrong with what he said.

Yes, his opinion is probably influenced by his perceptions about the pitch, but man is allowed his opinion and its not that outlandish, even if I/we disagree.

Correct. However, in the context of Arsenal having just been knocked out of the CL by Milan it makes Wenger sound like a massive tosser.

Saying Milan are 'no chance' is just ridiculous regardless of the context.

Of course, his opinion is influenced by what happened in the last game. He probably knows how it makes him look.

But hey, its his opinion.

His opinion, people should be able to call him out on it though.

He probably made this comment after the Barca draw. They would need to beat Barca, Benfica/Chelsea (winnable here) and then Bayern/Madrid.

I give it a 1% chance of happening. Team was already flawed and then it lost its best player with Ibra by far...

All the other teams still in the comp have flaws as well.

This is bullshit report, Wenger would never come out and say a team has no chance, and the way its written its all made up.

I think Milan has a chance but Barca, Bayern and Real would be really hard to beat.
