    Well given Salah's following in Egypt, if he is on the ballot he is going to win it.

    It’s an almost dead cert, I’d say.

    Yeah, tbf if it werent for Selikhov, their keeper, you would have won away in Moscow. The CL this season has seen some crazy scorelines imo, Spartak thrashing Sevilla 5-1, Maribor capitulating v Liverpool but strangely playing well against both Sevilla and Spartak! Dortmund, Atletico and Benfica being dissapointing.

    Certainly think if Liverpool's attacking 3/4 play like that tonight they have a great chance to go far in the tournament, my only worry with Liverpool would be the difficulty to eek out a win in a tight game as one area of the side which is not so strong is the defence, especially sometimes at set plays.

    Fair enough, i will confess i havent seen Chelsea too much in the CL games this season, maybe unconvincing was the wrong word to be fair, dissapointing is a better word as pre-group stage you would have been looking to win that group despite Roma and Atletico being decent sides.

    I still think if you draw PSG or Besiktas, Chelsea will go through, Barca would be 50-50 imo, very difficult to call.

    :confused Don’t think we’ve played you in the knockouts yet, have we?

    We’ll draw Real I think.

    Playing Foden at LWB was a strange one though. Agree on Tosin, but he was horribly exposed by the useless (on the night) Danilo. And the defence got zero cover from midfield, with Yaya just strolling around - clearly well past it.

    That works better if we hadn't won 2 "knockout" cups with Jose......;)

    We're due a bad cup draw after last years Europa League run and our CL group.

    You always seem to get a great draw in any competition so you're definitely due a bad one.

    IIRC we had a few tough FA Cup draws in a row towards the end of Fergie's career but apart from that we've done pretty well recently.

    Obviously will be Madrid or Bayern now.

    Would be nice to get as many English teams into the QF as possible. All English CL ties are normally decent.

    I'd like to see this draw:

    United vs Sevilla
    PSG vs Real Madrid
    Roma vs Porto
    Barcelona vs Chelsea
    Liverpool vs Shaktar
    Man City vs Juventus
    Besiktas vs Basel
    Tottenham vs Bayern Munich

    City's attack versus Juventus's defence
    We haven't had PSG vs Real yet
    We're overdue Barca and Chelsea tie
    A another huge tie for Spurs

    I couldn't care less who United or Liverpool get. We all know what United will do and Liverpool will be exciting no matter who they face.

    No but we always seem to get you or arsenal and obviously the latter is not possible this season.
