Yessss!

We would get the exposure and then would spank them hard.
Can we play any opponent that finish 1st (as it is) and are not Italian, or those that had another Italian team in their group are predetermined not to cross with us?

Simeone feels more confortable with work-horses in the team instead of talented players such as Correa, Felix, Lemar, Griezzman etc...

I guess we will se a English in the 1/8's. Hopefully it wil be the winner of the Wolsburg-Sevilla crap-group.

I'd say it's better to get a big team like Bayern quickly and get our team to show some balls. Either PSG or Bayern. I'd love to see Darmian scoring two against PSG :lol:

Give us Manchester United in the next round, please.
If they still had ole I'd be all for it. Depending on who they get in they could be tough. Their squad is brilliant with a lot of speed, creativity and dribbling skills, things that we usually really struggle with.

Why is it better? Sooner or later we will face a big team. So why not get an easier draw now and face a big team in quarter-finals? The further we go in CL the better it will be both for team's mentality and our finances.

Even if they got Poch they would still be preferrable over the likes of City, Bayern, Liverpool and Chelsea. Not sure which one between them and Ajax i would prefer. Only whoever tops G group would be a better draw than Man Utd.

So let us beat Bayern straight away and be legends. There is no easy draw, just hard draws and harder draws. When we beat Bayern in 2011 and then got our ass destroyed by Schalke - that one proves my point. Either we good enough or our overlords will see that our squad clearly needs some new blood (which we all already know, we need a Sanchez, a Džeko, an Eriksen, maybe even another CB or somebody to come instead of D'ambrosio).

We are in CL, no time for pussyfooting around and hoping for 'smaller clubs'. There are no smaller clubs in CL after the group stage, every club knows how to win games.

Yes but there's getting beat and getting embaressed lol I don't fancy a 5-0 aggregate loss

Sure, neither do I. But if we're gonna be scared of any club, we should be playing in Europa League and not CL.

5-0?! We were the better team in most of our matches this season. We might not got the result all the time, but we never looked to get hammered by any side. Bring the strongest team in the CL and we can be a real challenge to them.

I don't believe we get hammered by any side, but I prefer to get an easier side now and save the stronger sides for the next stages.

Bayern destroyed Inzaghi last year, so that's a bad sign for us if Inter plays them. I'd rather we play Lille.
Bayern destroyed Lazio last year and we're not Lazio. We only share the same coach, not the same quality.

Yes, but seems like his playing style suits Bayern, and I'm not saying we'll get destroyed, I just think we'll get eliminated.

I don’t hate the idea of getting PSG if Poch is still there, they look wildly unbalanced. Would be a fun game at least.

Same thing for United. I’d be all for it provided they’re still playing that McFred pivot and Maguire in this form. But if they get Zidane/Valverde I’d like to stay far away. Pragmatic football with those wingers + Pogba, Bruno, and Van de Beek is not something I want to see us play against.

Ideally yeah, we get Lille, Sevilla, etc. And not ideally, Liverpool and Man City would absolutely ruin us.

Im sure city or liverpool players are not used to play against such poor oposition as gags or vecino, so that may distract them as don't know what to expect from them, so ends up getting a result in our favor.
I think the best would be to play against the best, no pressure, only gags and vecino surprising the opposition with weird and shitty choices they will never expect.

Whatever team is good. Inzaghi has got his green tick with CL performance this season in his to-do list. Big thumb up! Just avoid Bayern please because I don't want to break the record of loss.

Now he has to achieve the second tick i.e. finishing at least 2nd in Serie A (only below Juventus is excusable). We have a good enough squad for that.
