    Yeah my bad, I still maintain that Barcelona will beat us and Liverpool.

    Juve v City tie will be close but I fancy Juve.

    Do we know yet what date the first leg of the semi will be? I have flights booked for the Chelsea game on the Sunday before the semis but if we are to play on the Tuesday it will likely be moved

    It's total shit. I would have much preferred United or Liverpool, not even just because I think they're worse than City, but at least they're ties against big clubs.

    I couldn't care less about facing City, not remotely exciting for me at all.

    hehe, ok

    Which Manchester club is playing at home first since they were both drawn away and can't play at home on consecutive nights.

    City didn’t beat Lyon in 2 matches, Barcelona didn’t lost one. And United doesn’t have Messi. The best hope is he doesn’t have a game like vs Spurs or the last one. But it’s 50/50 .

    They’ve been trying since 2012. That year Bayern and Chelsea made the final after Barca failed to beat Chelsea and Real failed to beat Bayern.

    In 2013 it was Barca v Bayern & Dortmund vs. Madrid and both Spanish clubs messed up.

    2014 Barca couldn’t even pass QFs.

    2015: Juve vs. Real Madrid; Barca vs. Bayern but Madrid mess up this time.

    There has somewhat been a pattern. Messi vs. Ronaldo final would make them a lot of money though. The frenzy would be through the roof. And probably the whole world would tune in.

    With 400 m spent and still being called the weakest, than it's a disgrace. We are not the weakest.

    Drawn at home first. Apparently no chance

    Isn’t that what they said when Chelsea won it? Home first against Barca but somehow won

    I feel for Spurs. City were by far the team I least wanted to face as they’re fantastic and because they play them in the league already and because it’s City it won’t be a “big” European faceoff like it would be with Barca or Juventus.

    With 10 mins to play in second leg if away team needs one goal its actually pressure on the opposition. We have got game management now unlike mourinho who reversed it on us with Seville but we did it to pay. Anything is possible in football if you believe.

    Man City are jammy bstards, playing nobody in this competition. Playing Spurs to get to a semi final.

    Had a feeling we'd get Spurs. Not exactly a tie to get the juices flowing but, after Porto, they're the side I'd have most fancied us to progress against. Delighted we've avoided Liverpool in two-legged ties, feck playing at Anfield again. Not sure my nerves could have handled a big European game against United too so probably best that's seemingly avoided.

    I just didnt want a PL team. Barca is always an awesome night and we get to play against Messi whilst he's still a great player. Its always 3+ tough rounds to lift the trophy.
    One game at a time.

    What a load of bollocks. I could take us drawing Barca in isolation, our draws have been shit this season so I’m used to it, but while Liverpool draw Porto...

    Worst draw we could have got. Barcelona than likely Liverpool in the semis and City in the final.

    If it ends up being a Barca/Liverpool semi final who do you root for?

    Would I? :D While it's true I win £200 if Liverpool go trophyless, I'd not actually root for anyone to beat us.
