      Nice rest before the City league game (although they play CL on the same days as us so no advantage).

      Tough tie in the midst of a massive workload but extremely winnable.

      On we go.

      Wait, what? tough tie? it is the easiest tie we could have possibly had.

      Theyre 3rd in the Portuguese league which is not a strong league. The 2 teams ahead of them in the standings, Porto and Sporting, either we or City have beat handily without much of an effort.

      Can't sleepwalk through it, obviously, but the stars shined on us when this draw was made.

      Dunno if we could have hand picked that draw any better, avoided all the so called big sides, tongue in cheek, and I’m betting those same sides said thank f**k we didn’t draw Liverpool, Benfica will be absolutely f***in gutted, although they won’t be easy to get passed, if all goes well we can look forward to a semi with Bayern M and a completely different kettle of jobbies right there,

      But we’ve been there, done that and worn the T shirt so I’m fairly comfortable facing Lewandowski and his wee mates again, over two legs I’d take us every time, with our without the red tints, slightly arrogant may be but so f***in what, I think we’ve earned it, without getting too far up my own arse, I think we have a very very good chance of reaching Paris, and in a one off winner takes all 95 min final, again I’d favour us, absolutely!!

      Should we go through, it's better to face Bayern over two legs.
      We really can't complain.

      Always been pretty sceptical about Lewandowski. No doubt he's a top player but he's been plying his playing a league which would probably rank only 5th or even 6th in Europe in terms of quality. Remember he barely had a sniff against us in the two games when we last met in 2019.

      Lost a bit of Zip and relies heavily on others but give him a sniff and he doesn't pass up many opportunities

      It's the European Cup QF......in the midst of an extremely high quality title fight and an FA Cup campaign.

      It's tough because they aren't sh*t - we need to win the tie.

      Are we massive favourites? Yeah

      Does that get us a semi final place? No

      Is it the best we could've had? I think that's a toss up with Villareal, Atletico and them but I'd probably have plumped for them.

      Still a tough match against a good team that needs winning. I'd make it a pick 'em between them, Leicester and West Ham - both of whom have beat us.

      So, in summary, yes maybe the best we could've got but it's still a tough tie.

      Have to disagree with that.

      They do have a monopoly on the Bundesliga, but as a league they're probably 3rd behind England and Spain. No way it's worse than Seria A or Ligue 1 and anything below that is just not high quality.

      Atletico would have been one of the last on my list. Horrible team to play. Fancy them to do a job on City.

      We beat Porto a combined 7-1 and City beat Sporting a combined 5-0. They aren't "sh*t" but they're not good either. Easily the best draw we could have had, as i much rather face them than either Atletico or Villarreal. Never trust those Spanish teams and their antics. Ever. Especially Atletico who are the masters of it. Bunch of theatrical dirty cu*ts.

      Yea i think Atletico can out-c**t City and give them a hard time and favors us for our game against them.

      Imagine Atletico get a favorable result at the Etihad, then Pep's going to have the 2nd leg in the back of his head when they play us and could make a tactical or squad change that costs him. If there's anyone who can out think himself is Pep.

      Think the Bundesliga has been surviving on its' past reputation for a good few years now. Ligue 1 gets laughed at and referred to it as a "farmers league", but there's been a lot of players in that division recently who have been signed by top teams for big money and I'm talking out players who don't play for PSG. It seems to have had a far better conveyer belt of footballers in recent years than the Bundesliga has had, which is why I think pound for pound it's been the better league in terms of quality.

      To be fair to Atletico, they've hardly ever been impressive. They play and win dirty and that's how they could throw City off.

      If Atletico were to sneak out a draw at the Etihad the pressure on Pep would be immense facing a 2nd leg in Madrid and know in a matter of days he could lose the league lead and be out of the CL.

      AM are exactly the team City did not want because it will be a war of two styles and dont be surprised to see City get players sent off.
      Spurs did a job counter attacking City and AM will do the same. Some good games to look forward to

      Arguing with yourself dude.

      We don't get to the semis without winning a 2 leg tie against a team that'd be top 8 in the prem.

      Not a bad draw but I remember them knocking us out when we were champions league holders....

      Take nothing for granted.
