this! The nerves when Rashford stood up for that penalty was bad enough.
Well true, but that's true regardless of who we draw. We seem to actually still have motivation for CL games as well, it's mainly the Prem where our motivation has dropped off and complacency has set in.
If I had to order who I'd want to play (easiest to hardest) it would go: Porto, Ajax, United, Liverpool, Juventus, Barcelona, City, so United would still be a good draw for us and I think pretty much 50/50 if we play to our strengths and have everyone fully fit. At Wembley we should have scored 3 or 4 second half, United are in excellent form under Ole but you're beatable, we can get at you. Maybe if I had to pick a favourite it would be you, but that's purely based on current form, and that could change between now and the quarters.
I think if we drew any of Juve/Barca/City I wouldn't feel very confident at all. We already know what Messi and City can do to us, and whilst I think Juve are beatable they're still an elite side and Ronaldo would likely step up. We'd be big underdogs in any of those games.
For me we'd be big favourites vs Ajax & Porto, and I don't see that as me being arrogant, it's just that I think the portuguese & dutch leagues are far behind the premier league. That's not to say either wouldn't stand a chance, but I'd back us to go through most times.
Is this you? Unless you're one of their 6 followers!
It's being shared on multiple accounts. Someone sent a screenshot on Whatsapp and I found it on Twitter to post.
That printed leak draw is dodgy as feck, the UCL logo doesn't really fit the official document like that. It's basically taken from Google pics after typing 'champions league logo' Why would they place it there anyway, the current one has a purple background too. Obvious fake but I'd take Spurs
Troll level 100.
Mind you its a nice draw.
I can't even see I give up. That tweet is very clearly designed to mess up with invested supporters. The person who took that picture was probably giggling themselves to death as they imagined people tilting their laptops/zooming in!
Some guy make a Word document, printed it, put it on top of his desk, took a photo at a weird angle to make it seem like a leak and posted it on twitter while pretending to be a UEFA director or something like that... it literally happens every year ffs.
The leaks are never right. One of these days they'll be right out of pure luck and everyone will lose their minds
Am I actually the only one who hopes we'll get drawn against Liverpool? I mean don't get me wrong I'd prefer Porto but I wouldn't mind drawing the scouse bastards.
It doesn't need zooming in though.
If it were to be fixed this would be what I expect.
You made me go back to squinting at the screen!
Still couldn't see some of the names at all. I need check my eyesight.
Thanks. I'd love for this to happen (for betting reasons, but also Barca or City out early)!
United : Ajax (tap up De Ligt)
Porto : Barça
Spurs : Juve
Vermin : Berts
A Liverpool vs City tie could be big in terms of pyschological points gained.
Either way I’m expecting Pool to get Raith Rovers and we will get Brazil 70’.
To be honest, I don't really care who we draw as Ajax. We have put up a terrific CL-run from the qualifications to RO16 and sincerely believe that we can defeat any remaining party if we play like we have been doing for the last couple of months. There is no team left that has set up a greater CL performance thus far than we have.
Don't get me wrong. We are by all means still the underdog party considering all the big-money clubs that are still left, excluding only Porto, but we are playing with a certain confidence and bravoure in the Champions League that will downright intimidate any team we'll face.
The motto "We Are Ajax, We Are The Best" might sound ridiculous to some, but Ajax' rich history has ingrained the club with such class and boldness that few sides have entrenched in their club-culture. I sincerely believe that these sentiments play a role in such games.
Whether we will advance to the semi-finals or not, we will sell our lives dearly against which team whatsoever.
Surely were due some luck in a cup draw? Law of average and all that jazz.
Wow, how good would that be??
Would rather get City than United. Even though we'd have a better chance against United. Getting knocked out by United would be painful!
Whoever faces Barca is gonna lose. That team will need a world class defence. City will get ripped to shreds and so will any English team. Juve is the only hope of knocking them out because they are very solid and now have Ronaldo who's on fire.
No premonition on this one. Hope we stay away from city,barca and juve. In that order .
Spurs is really the easiest one .
Porto and ajax will fight hard .
Ajax will get Juve
Barca vs City
More i think about this we will get Barca .Revenge time!
Well.. In case of babies, if man and women both only had brothers, chances of them conceiving a boy is greater than 50%. Even if the man had only brothers the chances are above 50% that it would be a boy.
It really feels to good to find out United in the QFs after so many years, like its just a fresh feeling and I want us to become the top dogs of Europe again. I know we are not there yet, and our win against PSG was full of luck, but I can see us competing there and beating the big dogs. I know we have beaten PSG and Juve this season, but we weren't dominating those games and both of them clearly missed plenty of chances.
So anyway, my predictions for the QFs draws are
Man United vs Tottenham
Porto vs Liverpool
Ajax vs Juventus
Barcelona vs Man City
I think we'll beat Spurs easily over the 2 legs, and probably meet Juve in the semis and we'll beat them again.
Highly likely a load of bollocks but when it comes to UEFA and FIFA nothing would surprise me with those crooks, I’m sure they’d hate to see the majority of English teams getting through.
So we won’t be getting spurs...
Had a dream last night we got Barca woke up sweating because the scousers got Ajax
I like this version of the "leaked draw" a bit too much!
I'll stick with my guess from earlier yesterday though:
Even if the leaked thing were real, surely they'll change it now? Or do they really just give no fecks whatsoever.
Don't you remember when last year Roma had their game against Liverpool already in their fixture list on their website and you could even buy tickets?
The day when the game later took place was also right.
Actually pretty nervous for this, more nervous than our actual game tbh. Everything is possible now and with a favorable draw the path to the final could be wide open for the second year in a row. With all the fuzz around our title challenging league campaign, we could have a great shot at another CL final if the draw is kind to us.
3 out of the potential 7 opponents would be a great draw in the QFs imo, so pretty good odds.
The 'leak' is completely fake but if someone from UEFA saw it, surely they will try to avoid this set of draws to avoid controversy?
The best thing about this draw is that we'll know our potential opponents in semi-finals.
It's a good thing that UEFA decided that there was no reason to invite all the people just for a short draw of semi-final pairs in April.
That is brilliant! So they'd fix the draw to avoid accusations of fixing the draw
No, they don't care and they don't give a feck.
Read my post above about last year's Roma vs. Liverpool thing. They didn't change anything.
By the way - this is what I THINK WE'LL GET, not something I'd like, but...
Manchester United vs. Juventus
Liverpool vs. Manchester City
Manchester City vs. Ajax
Barcelona vs. Porto
Never knew Man City had been allowed to field two teams in the competition
Did the draw simulator on the MEN website and got the following that I’d be quite happy with:
Tottenham vs Man City
Barcelona vs Juventus
Porto vs Liverpool
Ajax vs Man Utd
Knowing our luck with cup draws this year, I have no doubt we'll get either Barcelona or Juve again. Meanwhile city will get Porto and Liverpool will get ajax
Be great if that pic was indeed fake, but the draw went that way anyway
I don't think we're strong enough to beat either Barcelona, City, Liverpool or Juventus. We might even struggle against Spurs. Therefore, it's gonna be a shit draw for us anyway. Might as well try enjoy some of those fixtures and hope we don't get embarrassed.
