Fire In The Hole As Thierry Henry's Monaco Battered In The Champions League

Fire In The Hole As Thierry Henry's Monaco Battered In The Champions League

Life at Monaco for Thierry Henry has been a disaster so far, with this evening's 4-0 defeat to Club Brugge in the Champions League the latest in a string of poor results.

Three quickfire goals in the first half - a Hans Vanaken brace and Wesley long ranger- put the Belgian side in control after 24 minutes, and Monaco had no response, with Ruud Vormer adding a fourth late on to add insult to injury for the beleaguered Ligue 1 side.

It appears that Monaco's performance did not impress their fans, with a fire breaking out  in the stands (in protest?!), though to be fair the blaze never looked to be in danger of threatening anyone.

It's now seven losses in ten for Monaco who have not won in 15 and will be mathematically out of the Champions League if Monaco's if Atletico Madrid beat Borussia Dortmund tonight.
