    Called it. The fix is in.

    They want a Barca vs. Juve or City final. Either Pep vs. Barca or Ronaldo vs. Messi, either would be a win for them.

    feck UEFA.

    My predictions:
    Ajax
    - Juventus
    Liverpool - Porto
    Tottenham Hotspurs - Manchester City
    Barcelona
    - Manchester United

    Ajax - Manchester City
    Barcelona - Liverpool

    Ajax (home kit!) - Barcelona

    :p


    Totally doable! *cough*

    (In all fairness, probably Man City vs Barca final, with Barca winning on Cruijff points).

    If we go that route, after beating Juve in GS and PSG in Ro16 as well we would be up there among the best CL winners. :lol:

    We need a thread dedicated to everything that has gone Liverpool’s way this season. It’s unbelievable.

    Pfft. It's just an Italian team. As Cruijff said: "Italian teams can't beat you, but you can lose to them."

    I feel for Spurs. Actually got to a QF of the Champions League again and they get drawn against fecking City who they play twice a year and are far superior; even the Dortmund draw was more exciting for them.

    I'm not saying they will, I'm just saying that's the "storyline" UEFA want for the final. Barca vs. Pep or Messi vs. Ronaldo.

    Look at the brackets for the CL over the last few years, they tried to rig a Barca/Real final every time, but Barca always fecked up. The draws are 100% rigged.

    We just couldn't have one nice draw this year. Christ.

    Liverpool in the semi then possibly City in the final. That's an outrageous run, imagine if we won!

    I hope we prepare for how Barca really are and not what we think they could be.
    They're not this awesome tika taka side anymore and they are vunerable to the counter attack.
    If our midfield plays well we can win, if Pogba has another off night then we won't.

    Please don't let it be a City v Liverpool final. I couldn't handle that.

    We have no chance so let's play without fear. At least entertain.

    Yeah it sucks. If they're gonna go out it would have been nicer to have a day out in Europe and not boring old England.

    We're heading out to Barcelona but they’re gonna beat Liverpool in the semis I think.

    Juve should also beat Ajax and City.

    Juve v Barca final I reckon.

    I fear for my health in the event we play Liverpool in a Champions league semi-final.

    Between Goalies throwing the ball in their own nets, Dubious goals, Opposition injuries and this easy tie it would be some thread. If they don't manage to win anything this year with this amount of luck it will be the biggest bottle job ever.

    Incredible. This was rigged.

    They so want a Messi vs CR final.

    Blatant UEFA corruption. Feck this. Don't give a shit at this point. Had to be Barça vs Man Utd right? Feck. Shit. SHIT.

    Either result suits me. Man Utd or Barça till death. May football win (not VAR).

    We HAVE to keep a clean sheet in the first leg. 0-0 wont be the worst result given how we did against PSG away. If we have a fully fit squad, everyone firing, then this fixture might not look as daunting as it does right now.

    I think we can really stuff Barca, their defending is shambolic for the most part and they no longer this high pressing and intensity side they used to be, there's a reason they got shown up by bloody Roma last year and can't get past QF hurdle for years now.

    If Barca or United don't win the CL you should just start supporting the eventual winner too.
