Blessing in ...
Barca will defend at OT, and we win thanks to away goal at Camp Nou.
Gone are the days of playing knockout ties vs Marseille, Chelsea and Schalke en route to the final...
Our luck with draws is absurd.
They aren't all that apart from Messi. He's all that and more.
Finally feels like we are back!
This tie has the potential to hurt both sides in their league campaigns. All that EPL physicality has to take a toll.
Exactly! Stop whining, its exciting. We owe Barca a few as well
Was expecting this question from someone.
I'll go with the safe answer that is yes. You guys betting again this round ?
I thought I was over the CL but it turns out all I needed was United in the last 8.
Suarez will shed a few pounds and play like a man possessed.
So we're getting either Juve or City in the final right? After we beat Barca in the quarters and Liverpool in the semis?
This CL victory could end up being nearly as sweet as 99 was.
Yep, we have the home leg first
Good shout. Even got the home and away draws right too (before Barca v United was reversed)
I knew this would happen. If we win the FA and Euro cups they'll be well deserved.
With Pogba scoring from a long range shot
I've applied for my ticket, not a cat in hells chance but hey ho.
We beat them over the last two legs too. Bring them on.
What’s the point of having David Gill if he won’t rig it for us? He needs to do better in the future.
Ah yes I remember that now.. Feck we have the odds against us.
Barcelona FFS typical... mean while Liverpool get Porto, and Man City get Spurs
Barca play Atletico on 6th April 3 days before the quarterfinal. They can't rest Messi for that.
Hopefully they give Barcelona a tough match which leads them to being knackered against us..
Spurs have been absolutely fecked by this draw. 3 defeats to City in the space of a week will kill them. Will be similar to when Arsenal got slapped twice in 5 days last season.
Be nice if Barca had La Liga to worry about as well, 7 points ahead is a winning cushion considering the competition.
Hmmm,ideally I would have loved us to be drawn against Porto or Ajax,but the CL is all about testing yourself against the best so a CL Quarterfinal against Barcelona should set the pulses racing.They are the favourites going into the tie,but there’s no reason why we can’t push them all the way...I”m dissapointed that Liverpool have been drawn against Porto though...
City wouldn't have wanted all that EPL physicality as well at this late stage in the season.
Well he just gave United the hardest tie and Liverpool the easiest! I'd say most Liverpool fans were praying for that outcome!
Some audition for Ole
Dunno how I feel. It's great to be back watching the big occasions and at least go into it having some chance, but it's bollocks seeing the media darlings get the easy draws.
And then get sent off for trying to bite Smalling cos he's so hungry.
Full end of the world meltdown at rawk and bluemoon...
Another glamour tie. Nice!
Shame about Liverpool getting another easy route to the final.
Any idea yet when the actual date will be announced? Ryanair prices going up already
Don't think Barcelona will be too pleased about drawing us either. Pique was at United when the spirit Ole has revived was still in operation, so he will know its not the same United they would have been expecting to face under Jose!
At least Liverpool will have to play Barca as well.
Can anyone point me to a list of all the teams we've drawn in cups so far this season?
Our run of fixtures isnt the worst around the Barca game. Looks like we have 7 days prep for a home game. And then West Ham at home isnt a bad game to rotate / rest and make use of squad (and everton away after the second leg).
Can see Spurs drawing one of the matches but it wont matter.
Pogba winner v’s Juve in the final then.
Seriously though...United/Barca...proper European glamour tie. Buzzing for it.
The stars are aligned for Ole. I see us winning the CL this year.
Don't be surprised of Messi misses the two games for running tummy or something.
Why is everyone moaning about Liverpool’s draw? It’s really cringey tbh
CL engagement could hurt their league form this late in the season. They don't have City's depth.
