    Possible Champions League Pairings

    Going off of the Champions League standings I have come up with this list of teams that we can face in the Round of 16...

    We can't play the team from our group and a team from our country in the first round of pairings.. just to remind everyone.

    The list: Schalke, Manchester United, FC Barcelona, Bayern Munchen, Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Shakhtar Donetsk.

    That is a pretty tough list. These would be my preferences:

    1. Shakhtar Donetsk (good match up)
    2. Schalke 04 (defense that can be exploited)
    3. Bayern Munchen (not in the best of form)
    4. Manchester United (solid team, but not like past years)
    5. Chelsea FC (in a mini crisis, but Ancelloti knows the way we play, plus we don't have Mourinho)
    6. Real Madrid (In great form, and Mourinho would know our players better than anyone)
    7. FC Barcelona (Still the best offensive team in the world, and have proved it several times this season)

    Who would you fancy our chances against? IF we are full strength come February I could see us beating the first five teams after two legs, however the last 2 are highly doubtful. And I'm making a large assumption that our midfield and offense could reach a decent level somewhat like the previous season.
    Zenga, Brehme, Ferri, Bergomi, Mandorlini, Matthäus, Bianchi, Berti, Matteoli, Diaz, Serena. Trapattoni.

    To be honest, to me there is no good opponent/bad opponent. Every no name out there is good enough to beat the crap outta us. So it doesn't matter to me, you know. It's a lose-lose situation anyway.

    I still don't know why, but I have faith things will turn around, as players come back into the team and we gain shape. Maybe the title is lost, but I could still see us coming back to win something this season. Maybe it is the optimist in me.

    By Feb things can change for both sides. Maybe Man United get back in form....

    Shaktar and Schalke but knowing UEFA it will be either Bayern or Real...


    Everything a man should be. We miss you Cipe.

    Don't get your knickers in a twist.

    By then we might be in form....we might actually have a decent coach.

    Right now if we play any of these teams we will lose by 3 or 4 goals.. except Barcelona.... They would destroy us probably 13-0.
    Best match thread opener ever.

    I would hate to lose to Barca, Chelsea, or Bayern after what happened last season.

    No shame in losing to Real.

    You never know with the 'random' draws of UEFA but percentage wise, Arsenal should be drawing Barcelona...Although from a ratings standpoint, I imagine Inter, Milan & Arsenal all represent legit reasons for UEFA to hope for these pairings

    we really, really need to avoid barca, chelsea, bayern...as has said before, it will make last season's victory look like a big fluke

    we will get humiliated big time v barca and bayern for sure

    So true. Uefa is riggid as hell. Im expecting ManU . A sparkling reunion between Sir Alex and Benitez . Bilan will get Chelsea. Carlo faces his past.
