    Champions League/ Europa League Draw

    So the Champions League draw is being held today, Arsenal and United the remaining English clubs. There's also the Europa League draw which is being held with Liverpool and Fulham still in this competition.

    I'm hoping we avoid Barca, Utd, Bayern and Inter but I'm still confident we have a good chance of progressing whoever we get.

    I'd like to see United v Inter in next round.

    Who is left in the Europa league?

    Atletico Madrid
    Valencia
    Liverpool
    Fulham
    Wolfsburg
    Hamburg
    Standard Liege
    Benfica

    Quite a few decent teams in there, should be a interesting draw. I actually want Fulham to do well, Dempsey's goal was awesome last night!

    I would probably prefer getting Barca over United or Inter just because the last 2 will just defend and look to counter us wheras against Barca I'm pretty sure over both legs it will just be both teams attacking and should be 2 really good games. But yeah whoever we get I don't mind, we're going to have to beat the best teams if we want to win it.

    i want barca vs inter,
    and want united to get cska or bordeux.

    My prediction

    Champs League draw

    Barcelona - Lyon
    Aresenal - CSKA
    Manchester - Inter
    Bordeaux - Bayern

    Europa League

    Fulham - Benfica
    Liverpool - Standard
    Aletico Madrid - Hamburg
    valencia - wolfsberg

    The semi-final draw is being made today as well, wouldn't be too bad if CSKA, Bordeaux and Lyon were on Arsenal's side of the draw

    Even with Arsenal and Utd in such good form I can't see anyone stopping Barcelona if their form continues.

    Barcelona v Arsenal would be an awsome final I think.

    I still can't get over Fulhams result, that has to go down as one of the greatest English come backs of all time, had it been Chelsea, Utd or Arsenal we wouldn't hear the end of it.

    Liverpool could do worse than look Hodgson's way IMO.

    If Rafa does leave for Madrid / Juve, that's who I'm hoping for to replace him, if we can't get Mourinho

    Even though it wouldn't be the best of draws (in terms of easy progression) for us, I'm kind of hoping we get Valencia...

    Benitez (and Aurelio) back to the Mestalla
    Torres vs Villa
    A chance for Mata / Silva / Torres to be tempted to join us after experiencing the atmosphere in the home tie :whistling:

    You're still going to need 4th place though

    Hello stanger

    Probably, but if Valencia were to miss out on it too (they're 3rd in La Liga at the moment), and we do get the new investment / new owners then who knows. TBH though, Villa is 29 this year, and £30m+ would be a hell of a lot to pay for someone who might not adapt, and would disrupt the Gerrard/Torres partnership. Silva might not be able to cope with the physical side of the Premier League either. I'd take Mata in a heartbeat though.

    Could be

    Bayern/Man United v Lyon/Bordeaux

    Inter Milan/CSKA Moscow v Arsenal/Barcelona

    Arseanal away for the return as well, doesn't look good but you've got to beat the best to win it so you never know.

    If Arsenal manage to get by Barca then they will prob face Inter then United if the other matchs were to go with the favourites. Ouch

    I'd say United v Inter final!!

    I think Inter will be able to stop Barca/Arsenal playing and win over 2 legs

    Looking on the bright side I feel Arsenal are the only team left in it capable of outplaying Barcelona.

    fabregas will see what it will be like at the nou camp before his transfer in the summer :-D

    It is not guarantee. There are no poor teams at this stage of a Champions League campaign.

    not liking that....would have rather utd face barca over a 2 leg'd game...

    oh well...not a bad draw for utd....but bayern shouldnt be underestimated

    Yeah I'm actually looking forward to the Barca games but I would've much preferred if the winner would've faced one of the French teams in the semis. It's going to be very hard for us most probably will have to beat Barca, Inter and Utd, we can do it though :-D

    If Utd can't get past that Bayern team and then Lyon/Bordeaux I'd be shocked.

    Bayern Munich are not going to be easy, still hoping united will make it all the way. 3 finals in a row :-D

    Arsenal are screwed, no chance they are getting there. Same final as last year i'm thinking.

    Any idea when the arsenal vs barcelona quarter final tickets are being sold? or are they already sold.

    After that draw I might stick a few quid on United to win it. Anyone know what odds they are? (Can't check in work)

    Tbh Bayern Munich are decent and so are Lyon.

    Bayern are nowhere near the team they used to be.

    I like that draw.

    You make it sound like a foregone conclusion. Bayern are still a good team. As you say though, United are a great team so they should beat them.

    They ought not to be underestimated though.

    I've watched Bayern and they aren't all that. They were lucky to get past Fiorentina, and as for Lyon they aren't that good, I'd say Bordeaux have a better chance of progressing.
