    haha, im quite excited to say the least!

    i think you will be welcome here next season DC! but maybe someone will muster up a EL thread for you

    Spuds and Arsenal to take an early exit, United and Chelsea to progress.

    Inter also to exit along with Shakhtar Donetsk, Schalke and Lyon.

    Spurs should go through, although it would be funny if they didn't. For us I don't really mind if we get knocked out, Barca are amazing and it will allow us to focus on the league while United still have the Champions League to consider.

    I dont think anyone is expecting us to beat Barcelona, i certainly dont.I expect goals at the emirates mind because if we lose there,we have no chance of turning it around in the away fixture. Hopefully we can take a small advantage with us to the nou camp (fingers crossed)

    United and chelsea should advance without alot of bother.

    Spurs i think will exit probably along with us.

    Yeah i agree, im just looking forward to a good game of football,if we get knocked out so be it!

    Why funny? Spurs have already exceeded expectation in the Champs league this season by topping a group including the current european champions. If we go out it will be with our heads held high and with alot of respect from around europe.

    In the last few seasons i have heard the same rubbish from arsenal fans. "Your going to get relegated", "you will never finish top 4", "you only made the qualifiers, you have no chance of getting into the group stages" (said before draw and after young boys away leg), "You have no chance of qualifying from that group"."Even if you do qualify you won't finish top" etc etc etc. Now we won't get past Milan and won't finish top 4 again.....................or will we!?

    Why would i support the remaining English teams? I don't support them.

    I hope Barcelona win as they are by far the best and most entertaining team in the World at the moment.

    Well Barcelona strong favorites and rightly so, their unbeaten run come to an end last night so a glimmer of hope. As for Madrid, Jose is capable of anything so would never back against them.

    only team worth a few quid is Munich as an outside bet.

    I suppose it beats your normal "You wont even get to the league stage" and "You won't be getting out of the league stage" type posts.

    Not bad from "Ars*nal Fan" to say a "Pub side" is expected to knock out Milan who just happen to have held more European and World titles than any other club.

    I'll return the compliment.

    I expect you to beat Birmingham City and win your first silver wear for 5 years. LOL

    Getting a bit desperate from the Spurs fans. You'll win nothing this season and most probably won't even qualify for next season's Champions League. Don't worry yourselves about us we're still involved in all 4 competitions and will be in next season's Champions League

    Just as I expected. Just regurgitated crap and no acknowledgement your baiting backfired and not gone to plan.

    LOL At the gooner "getting desperate" saying the Barca Game isn't important and expect Spurs to beat Milan. What you gonna do for an encore? Wave a Carling cup at me?

    Because I expect Spurs to beat an ageing Milan side that means I'm baiting? You need to calm down. It's funny how it's gone from winning nothing to now oh you'll have 'only' a Carling Cup. I'd like us to win it, but it's nothing major. The fact that you berated others for saying such things when Spurs won it mean you should either acknowledge it as a success or accept you're being hypocritical yet again.

    cannot see past barca. man u are a good bet at 8/1.

    Considering your previous comments about not getting to the group stages or out of the group stages and suggesting we are a pub side, not to mention the fact Milan are clear of the pack in the Italian League, I'd say it certainly is a change in your usual tactics.


    You need to calm down..


    That would suggest I'm annoyed. Quite the opposite. We're doing far better than you expected and dont like it.

    Winning the Carling cup IS silverwear I've never claimed any different. Where it becomes amusing is the fact beating our reserve team with your full side in extra time this season clearly meant far more than you'd care to admit. Beating a pub side in the opening round of a mickey mouse cup... Wey Hey...... Yet.... losing in the Semi Finals 6-1 was completely meaningless (according to you.) So for you to throw "Hypocrite" in my direction is irony in the extreme. I suppose telling you I think you'll win the Carling Cup previously is baiting?

    Indeed. Modric and Jenas also not available....... I expect the pub side to beat the Italian Leaders though..... Oh wait! That's not my line!

    If we can get an away goal and come away with a goal defeat or better I'll be happy. We have serious injuries at present. Shows how well we are doing that at weekend as we started without a single first choice midfielder. Finally our much vaunted squad depth comes good!! That's after getting shot of 2 decent mods in Jan (bentley and o'hara).

    If only our strikers could score. Can't wait for tomorrow no matter what happens

    @ gbspurs yeah will be interesting, milans defence is going to be shakey as a couple are out with injury so you will need to push for that all important away goal.

    Hope Arsenal get a right stuffing, maybe 6-0.

    Our full side? Are you having a laugh. Both teams played weakened sides and you got thrashed badly, I was actually embarrassed for Spurs. Such an awful club, you even had little kids crying in the crowd after Arshavin emphatically netted the 4th. Compare that to the 5-1 where Spurs played their first team, and we rested basically everyone, not to mention both of these games were at ***** Hart Lane. The fact is you had a temper tantrum because you got all excited that Spurs won the Carling Cup and no one cared, yet when Arsenal have the chance to win it then suddenly you think it means nothing and you're laughing about us winning?

    And get over yourself, the Italian League is awful and I do expect Spurs to go through. Not because Spurs are any good, I mean as soon as Spurs meet another English side, or Barca or Real etc they'll immediately be sent packing never to return, but at the moment you should be able to progress past Milan.

    The time for talking/arguing is over.................pick your weapons.

    AC Milan are such a poor team i fully expect the spuds to win the tie !


    P.S. If the spuds fail to overcome a very poor AC Milan i will find it highly amusing.

    I expect Italian football is so bad, they never win the Champions League...... Oh wait....

    PS..... who has won the last two league encounters between the Spurs and Ars*nal? X)

    PPS..... I do think after the above, its a bit rich to claim I've had a temper tantrum. But do carry on.... Its amusing all the same.

    These non-sensical arguments are just going to keep going. Why does it matter that Milan have won in the past, so have Liverpool, doesn't mean they're dominant anymore. Are you upset just because I'm not predicting Spurs to go out oO. I think Chelsea and United will go through as well. Actually I think Chelsea have the best chance of winning out of all the English teams as they won't really be focusing on the league.

    can anyone confirm how it works after the first lot of knockouts i honestly cant remember... its just a random draw again right? no set fixtures from here like winner of group A faces winner of group C etc?

    Yes, that must be it, I'm all upset.

    PS Nice that you say history and past dominance is irrelevant.........

    PPS.... You forgot to answer the question who has won the last 2 league matches between Spurs and Ars*nal....

    Wow Spurs have beat us twice in a decade in the league lol, that's really something to be proud of. And Inter won last season, a lot of it down to Mourinho and they did ride their luck at times. Look at them this season, a mess. Milan have a decent team but they're not that good, it should be pretty close but I know I'd be confident of knocking them out if we were facing them, and although Spurs are inferior to us I still expect them to have enough to progress.
