That went surprisingly well. City will ease past Spurs though.
That was about as good as we could have hoped for!
Indeed. Assuming we get past Porto then I'd prefer Barca to either City or Juve. Really looking forward to that one (I hope).
I don't fancy Juve and their ultra defence over 2 legs. And nor do we want another City marathon.
Barca only play one way and there will be no tactical surprises against them.
Went probably as well as we could have hoped.
Bet city fans are fuming
If you'd have told me I'd be supporting Spurs in a CL quarter final at the start of the season, I'd have assumed I must have had severe head trauma in the meantime
Even though Manchester United's draw came out like this:
Barcelona v Manchester United.
It will actually be like this:
Manchester United v Barcelona
That's because Manchester City have also been drawn to play at home in their second leg and two teams from the same city cannot play in the same week for safety reasons. So United's game will switch.
Why? Because they finished lower than City in the Premier League last season..
I wonder if city will sell their allocation
Yes, even better news for us!
Chelsea face a bit of a travel, AWAY, against Slavia Prague (shit, horrible Czech pitch) in UEL just before our game in the league.
Hopefully by then they'll be out of the top 4 running and have to prioritise that as the most realistic route to the CL. They've actually got an easy route to the final in that.
We should all be supporting Everton this weekend.
It's all coming together nicely!
EL draw just happened, Arsenal have drawn Napoli, while Chelsea look to have a clear path to the final.
Chelsea on the 14th.
Them playing Slavia away on the 11th is great news for us. Hopefully they are few goals down.
Liverpool vs Ajax in the final. Perfect.
Get to final and we will be in red as can't see Ajax getting there
When is the CL semi? Isnt the league season still ongoing at that point?
If so surely we want citeh to come through the spurs games, but with injuries aplenty? That way they'll still be unable to focus solely on the league.
30th April and May 7th
City will play Spurs in the league right after the 2nd leg
Fuck that, I want the strongest sides out asap. Spurs can beat them on the Wednesday and the Sunday and we can do the double
