    Not watching but following the radio broadcast.

    It's 8-3 at 90'mn. and that's the highest scoring
    game ever in the Champion's league. Previous
    record was Paris Saint-Germain 7- Rosenborg BK 2.

    My thoughts exactly. And it's 8-3 in the dying minutes.

    Been watching the Celtic-Anderlecht game myself. Entertaining.

    Unfortunately, some people I know on these boards will think that because it was a high scoring game, that that equates it to being "a great game."

    Oh well...can't convert the stubborn i guess...

    These kind of games generally are good games.

    ever seen a game with 11 goals that wasnt good???
    You dont often hear someone say like ohh that 4-4 draw was boring.

    Other than pickup games, kids tournaments, and that Germany mauling of Saudi Arabia in last year's World Cup, I guess I'd say no. But take note that all of the above, including the Monaco-Depor game, had some atrocious mistakes by the defense and goalkeepers.

    Having said that, i didn't watch the game, but after seeing Sky SPorts Highlights, it looked more like a scrimmage with the way the goals were scored rather than an important Champions League match.

    Depor's coach must be prepared to get royally grilled by the Spanish press, particulary from Galicia and Madrid. Can't wait for Marca's headline for the debacle!?!?

    Deportivo are the 2nd or 3rd best team in Spain, makes you wonder about the quality of defending in Spain.

    People say it's bad in England, but having seen Deportivo and Real Madrid the last 3 years their defences have been abismal. The defending tonight was horrific, and I mean horrific.

    This is why Italian teams have now learnt to get the better of them. English teams have done much better against Italian teams this and last season.

    Spanish teams however still seem to get the better of English.

    Sometimes I think Depor's too defenesive obviously that wasn't the case tonight.

    Not that I'm making any excuses (ok I am) but our starting wingers were out, with them in maybe we could have made the scoreline even higher, say 8-5?

    That being said, well done Monaco, and I'll be rooting for you guys the next matchday, hopefully knocking off PSV.

    One cannot judge a whole league by the performance of one team in one match. In the case of Real Madrid, they have made a conscious decision to "ignore" defense in favor of attack. When Makelele was injured last season, I knew they would lose to Juventus. In the case of Deportivo, they just had a bad match. Other teams like Valencia have an excellent defense. Every team is different and every game is unique.

    I would say the defending is bad in England, on the whole, but teams like Southampton and Birmingham seem to do a good job of it, so it varies with the team, just like in any other league.

    The other thing is that players switch teams so often, moving between Italy, England, and Spain, that one cannot say Spanish teams are like this or that or English teams or like this or that. It changes from team to team, from year to year, from coach to coach.

    I think MarioKempes hit it right on the ball!?!? (no pun intended, especially after an 8-3 game!?!?!)

    Buy the man a pint! (Or in his case, a Quilmes!?!? LOL)

    wowee wow wow

    holy shiteskies what a demolition. i can't believe there aren't more posts on this. maybe they're in the france forum. i didn't see the game but I watched the highlights and Depor was guilty of some shocking defending, if you can even call it defending. Monaco ripped them to shreds and they have consistently been one of the top teams in Spain over the last several years - I wonder how it will affect their morale overall. I saw a picture of Morientes watching with Raul in the stands - I wonder what he was thinking?! He missed have been thrilled to see his team beating Deportivo like that but then again, it was Prso, who scored 4 goals, that only played because El Moro was injured!

    I think one of the reasons why matches like these are so fun to watch is because it doesn't happen every day.
    If it happened all the time it'd be boring, but sometimes the unexpected high score and the number of goals in one match just shoot up the entertainment value. Yeah, okay so it's not the best football, but it does make a very interesting match that is fun to watch.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Germany demolition of Saudi Arabia. I never expected anything quite like it.
