They added the Liverpool ball to the Atletico draw.

Would have been funny if they drew Liverpool and realized they made the same mistake twice (same as United drawing Villarreal).

They obviously just fecked it up. If they really did want to fix it for us to draw PSG, there's a million more effective ways of doing it.

Not agreeing to a redraw could be looked at with suspicion though. They wouldn't want to give up their juicy Ronaldo vs Messi spectacle.

Egypt.
We should protest also against this not against facing PSG or anyone just because what happened, we need things to look more fair and this wasn't at all.

Also good to make sure the person drawing the balls has a name that is an anagram of BALLRIGGED.
Erig Blagld. Sounds passable.

I always rig my draws in the most publicised manner that leads to total outrage and questions from clubs and the media alike pushing for a complete redraw that almost guarantees my initial rigging can't go ahead.
Ah but that just makes a great smokescreen for the re-draw, which will actually be rigged in favour of [insert name of club].

It's brilliant. You can't even hate them for such excellent orchestration.

It doesn't matter if it was just a legit error, they still need to re-draw it.

How can you have a tournament go on with such a huge feck up.

Yh now about principle. I don’t actually mind PSG but they can’t let that stand when there’s evidence of human error with the draw.

If it goes ahead we should come out in a different teams kit.

We should push for the redraw just in the hope that Liverpool and City get more difficult draws.

In all seriousness, it’s ridiculous if it is allowed to stand. The draw wasn’t done properly. End of

If we’d have draw Lille would you all be clamouring for a redraw?
I think you can acknowledge your own selfish interests whilst still recognising what the right thing to do is.

If this favoured United I'd think it was funny, but I'd still recognise the right thing to do would be a re-draw. It just wouldn't be up to us to kick up a fuss for the re-draw, we'd leave that to the teams who got screwed over.

I don't really fear PSG, at the same time we could end up getting Bayern which would be infinitely worse.

I think we just stick with with it personally. A really poor look for UEFA though if they don't redo it.

We can't get Bayern. Atletico and PSG are the hardest teams we can face.

UEFA right now: "Oh look, Man Utd have accidentally got PSG...might just leave it, tbf...Moving on..."

Too much money to be made from that to even think about a redraw. Let's not kid ourselves and pretend there is any sort of integrity with UEFA.

Was 100% human error rather than it being rigged.

The guy clearly says United while City are blanked out on the screen.

I guess it's an empty room due to Covid? I can't imagine the team delegations wouldn't have shouted out something...

Draw is not something which can't be repeated. They need 15 minutes to do it, ffs.
So if it is not by the rules, it must be repeated.
This can't end with "Oh, we messed up, sorry".

Bayern would be a better draw. We play PSG every time we’re in the CL and it’s boring as hell. They’re a boring soulless team. I want a proper CL tie

Ed Woodward is probably praying it's not re-drawn just so we can sell some Messi vs Ronaldo merch!

Let's not be too hard on them. Uefa only has a couple of hundred millions a year to organize these draws.

Can hardly expect every single one to be perfect.
