    Think I'd like the winner of Ajax and Schalke (looks like it's going to be Ajax).

    Celta Vigo are Spanish so you know it's going to be tough. Getting the winner of Besiktas and Lyon would be the worst.

    Besiktas would be by far the worst. Hate trips to Turkey.

    I think worst is Celta Vigo, they are very good at home.

    Yeah it's close between them and Besiktas/Lyon. The possibility of having to go to Turkey outweighs it a little for me though.

    Ajax or Celta Vigo or Lyon. Fairly short away trips.

    We should be beating anyone, but after struggling against Anderlecht I'm not going to be that arrogant. All three teams will be difficult to beat. But they will all fear us more than we fear them.

    CL:
    Juventus v Monaco
    Real Madrid v Atlético Madrid

    EL:
    Lyon v Celta Vigo
    Ajax v Manchester United

    Would like that. Don't want another Real Madrid v Atletico CL final.

    Yeah playing finals against Besiktas should be easy though if we qualify.

    We would have taken any of these teams in Cl draw but somehow have hint of fear in Europa.

    EL: We should beat any of those remaining, as long as we can keep creating chances and play with intensity. Ajax would be a nice final. I would rather we didn't have to go to Turkey if possible.

    CL: Monaco vs Juve final would be pretty interesting.. defence v attack, so I'd like to see them kept apart in the semis. Don't want to see another Madrid derby though..

    Celta Vigo the team to avoid in terms of hardest draw I think, so maybe rather play them in a 2 leg tie now instead of a final?

    We'd want Ajax, I guess. We should be beating all 3 though

    Want Ajax. Would be good to play them and get a view of their academy talents.

    Want Real to draw Monaco too. Would like to see the best attacking team in the competition so far against the holders.

    Anyone except Lyon in Semis please. As much as I love Rafa, I don't want our SF to be his testimonial

    United really shouldn't be fecking around with any of those remaining sides.

    I mean, they will obviously but still they shouldn't.

    On paper Celta looks the weakest, don't know how they look on the pitch though.

    We have to go and get a proper advantage in the first leg.

    Last year you had Sevilla/Liverpool/Villarreal in the semi's. Now 2 out of 4 are Ajax and Celta. This is United's best chance to get CL.

    On the basis that we're more likely to feck up in a one-off match I want Celta in the final. Think I'd marginally prefer Ajax over Lyon in the semis but I wouldn't be overly confident against either based on tonight's performance.

    Celta, please. I need some banter that isn't Brexit related.

    None of the teams are weak, we have to be 2 of the 3 to win it.

    I hope Real gets some who can beat them.

    Heres what I'm hoping for.
    CL:
    Atlético Madrid (ESP) vs Real Madrid (ESP, holders)
    Juventus (ITA) vs Monaco (FRA)

    Juve v Real final. Probably the 2 best teams in Europe going head to head.


    EL:
    Lyon (FRA) vs Manchester United (ENG)
    Celta Vigo (ESP) vs Ajax (NED)

    Ajax vs United final.

    Would be great for the EL to see two of Europes biggest and most historical clubs playing the final and a big boost to it after Sevilla v Liverpool last year. There was a time when it featured Fulham, Boro and Rangers so it would show a nice return to form. Ajax win because well... I am a City fan after all.

    I would probably choose Ajax. Still a difficult tie as tonight proved.

    I'd like Celta Vigo. Some sun for the lads.

    Real-Juve would be cracking but it's better to get Real-Atlético over two legs than in the final.

    I'd prefer Ajax, but thinking about it I think I'd rather get one of the two awkward teams out of the way.
