    Honestly, it's hard to see United beating any of those.

    Schalke would probably be the least tricky tie.

    United wouldn't face schalke. Most likely. They finished second

    A pity really, Schalke are doing even worse than United in an arguably weaker league.

    On the premise we'll finish second, I'd want to draw Porto, Bayern, R. Madrid in that order. I can only see us getting favourites against Porto and even then, there's the chance of it being another Sevilla. Nightmare draws are Barca, PSG or Dortmund whose forward lines against the United team would lead to a spanking.

    Balls to that, the only good thing about the UCL for the last two years has been the games with Juve, so bring on a Barca, PSG or Bayern and let's have some big games rather than go out in a whimper to a Porto

    We have to pray we draw Porto, anyone else and we'll be out even if Barca, Real, Bayern etc don't look great right now.

    Schalke are definitely the odd one out. The somehow fluked 2nd place in the Bundesliga last season but don't be fooled. There are terrible.

    Hopefully Jose can work a bit of cup competition magic with the lads. I’d love a go at Barca. Whoever we face we’ll be massive underdogs bar Porto.

    With Jose in charge it’s almost pointless getting excited about the draw as we stand no chance against all of those teams with him at the helm.

    Since we're shite in the league I think we'll do well in this competition, Moyes esque and all.

    After the Sevilla debacle I couldn't care less who we get with the clown we have in charge. We'd probably lose to Porto so might as well just have a go at a big hitter.

    On second thought I hope we get Porto so Liverpool can't get them. Hope the dippers draw Barca or Juventus. First game at Anfield with VVD suspended would be nice.

    Don’t think we can draw Juventus again, but yes I can see the scousers getting Porto.

    Edit: just realised you support Spurs.

    Played Madrid and Dortmund a lot recently, so anyone but those 2 would be good.

    Mourinho would dress it up as a favour to his former club.

    You have to remember that Porto has much more football heritage than Man Utd, a win for Jose‘s squad would be a huge upset

    I'll take anyone. It's so hard to say beforehand on what will be a good fit. It shouldn't matter in the end, it is all about winning every game. Let's go!

    Don't think it really matters who they get drawn against. Will be a quick exit.

    If we don't draw Porto we'd be out based on our outings this season.

    Are Porto better than Sevilla last season? Sure football heritage will have us knocked out against anyone.

    Porto, Schalke and United (pains me to say) aside those crop of teams look good. Should be some interesting ties.

    Could see Ajax causing an upset this next round. Definitely seems like one of the teams you d want to avoid this year.

    Would prefer Porto and least prefer Juve. Other than that I don't mind who Spurs get too much.

    I got an idea, whoever gets drawn against United, double ticket prices for their fans and make our home game hell again.
    We don't stand a chance really whoever we draw.

    Normally i hope for the weakest team, but i think we are going out whatever happens, so hoping for a Barca or Bayern, just for the sake of a big game.

    I want a top, top, top team, like Barcelona, PSG, Bayern och Real. I'd rather meet a top team before we are elimnated from the competition.

    Porto the only one we have a chance against and that's probably 50/50 as we'd treat them as a better version of Barcelona, lose 1-0 or draw 0-0 out there then we'd be screwed when they score at OT. Or the reverse as we'll be home first.

    No chance, They scored 15 goals in Group Stage and finished with 16 points. Unbeaten.

    If Mourinho is still the manager come February. I would not even like our chances against Porto.

    We're getting pumped in this next round. :lol:

    Maybe we'll get Barcelona and I can actually enjoy Messi dicking all over for once.
