Recommended Posts

The draw for the Champions League round of 16 is on friday and we will finally found out who we will play in february 2011.

The group winners: Tottenham, Schalke 04, Manchester United, Barcelona, Bayern Münich, Chelsea, Real Madrid & Shakhtar Donetsk

will face

The runners-up: Inter, Lyon, Valencia, FC København, Roma, Marseille, Milan & Arsenal.

We can face: Inter, Lyon, Valencia, København, Roma, Milan

Who do you hope we'll get? None of them seem unbeatable, even in our current form.

Any other matchups you would like to see? Perhaps Real Madrid playing Inter with Mourinho facing his old team?

Personally I wouldn't mind Barcelona getting Milan or Arsenal.

I'd like to face the weakest team please.

We were knocked out at the same stage last year with a better squad.

We don't have a hope in hell of winning it anyway so the sooner we're out the better. That means we can focus on the league.

FC København is actually a really good team, if we draw them we should not by any means think it will be easy. They had Barcelona in their pocket when playing them at home and did play really good footie through the group stages.

Still Milan for me though, vs Zlatan and Ancelotti vs his old club.

Why would we want to play Milan? They are playing.g great right now. Even though we all dislike zlatan, he is in great form. Plus they are playing that good without Pato. If we would draw them he would be back by then. It would very tough to beat them. I would rather play inter or Roma.

Thats a very negative view of things. Champions League is a bit of a crap shoot anyhow, the best team isn't sure to win.

If we don't get good results against Man U and Arsenal it might be smarter for us to forget the league and focus on the CL, no? (which I obviously don't mean literally) We are in poor form now but we might be lighting it up when the CL resume again.

As for my preferred draw I really don't have much preference. We are better then all of those teams and none seem especially stronger then the others. I suppose you'd like to avoid Milan. Inter, Roma and Valencia wouldn't be a cake walk though.

They're all pretty tough fixtures, you can rule Kobenhavn out they'll be getting United as they always seem to get an easy draw at this point. Have to say I'd prefer Roma, they are so inconsistent and terrible away from home I reckon we've every chance of beating them, solidly. Then again could also depend on which Claudio turns up on the bench.

As for who we don't want Milan are the obvious ones, big game players, tough place to play away. Ditto goes for Inter as I'm sure Rafa will be trying to use this comp to save their season and his arse. Lyon are a bit of an unknown, they've not been great this season but again dangerous on paper.

I'd be confident of us getting through if we play as we did on the weekend, got to go back to playing like an English team in Europe rather than an Italian team which I think was our undoing against Inter last season, we have to be swifter, play at a higher tempo particularly at home.

As the song goes:

You're support is f**king sh*t

You're support is f**king sh*t

You are a disgrace to this club and all it stands for
