19-12-08 Champions League Round of 16 DRAW

Postby FCBinNYC » Thu Dec 18, 2008 5:44 pm

Tomorrow we find out who Bayern will be taking on at the end of February. There's some interesting possibilities, Chelski who knocked us out a few years back, Atletico who we won our first ECC against, and of course everyone's favorite punching bags Real. Under normal circumstances I'd be sure that we'd get Madrid, but with all this Ronaldo nonsense starting up again I think the customary rigged draw will produce United v Real instead. Which leaves me thinking that we're gonna get Arsenal, which would be fine by me! I think we can beat any of these teams, but Chelski and Inter are the only ones that worry me a bit.

Haha , good one "the other team from Madrid" ! :lol:
Obviously on paper Sporting looks like the easiest team and the one you would wanna face.The only team out of these I wouldnt want Bayern to face at this point of the CL is Chelsea as they are a strong contender for the title , even though thay havent been doing too good lately.The other ones are easily beatable on a good day for us.

They're scared already ! :mrgreen:

goal.com wrote: Salgado:“The one team that I do not want to meet is Bayern Munich. They are the worst possible opponent we can face in a two-legged game,” he said during an interview with radio program, Onda Cero.“I have played them five times already and when you go up against them in an elimination match, they are the most complicated rival.It’s never possible to eliminate them completely,” he added.

Please don't let Bayern get Chelsea in the draw as I couldn't watch Ballack play against Bayern :cry:

I would LOVE to see Ballack vs Bayern, as long as we win! I'd rather meet them in final though, so that he can be second-best AGAIN! :twisted:

Ballack has a "final-curse" , so I'd love us to meet up with Chelsea in the final.We would probably win that match if Ballack is in the starting line-up. :P

Looks very doable! not taking anything for granted but I think we can be happy with who we got! All the English teams got very strong opponents in what promises to be a 16 round to remember.

Eh. I really wanted a tougher team to see where we stand. Lisbon should be beatable, but don't forget about how a few seasons ago we only managed 1-0 away and 0-0 at home against them! :? Of course, we're a much more coherent side now so I think we can go into this with supreme confidence. There's plenty of other cracking ties, that's for sure! I think it's interesting that all the Itals got paired with English teams, a real battle for supremacy there, especially with the histories of Ranieri and Chelsea and Mourinho vs United. England and Italy should schedule a friendly against eachother around that time just for the hell of it to cap it all off!

Bruno Conti rocks !Sporting is by far the easiest team we could be drawn against.Ironically the only team I rate to be weaker than Sporting - Panathinaikos - played some good and effective football and were first placed , so we couldn't be drawn against them.Its the CL and no team should be underestimated , but its looking very clear on paper.Schweinsteiger is probably gonna be in top form against the Portuguese as always , and with Ribery in normal-form as well it should be no problem.

Good draw. I feel sad for Inter and ManU. Two teams who are favorites for winning the CL, one of them gets kicked out early. It looks funnier when you see two weak teams (Villareal and Pananthiakos) face each other. I blame Inter, Madrid, and Chelsea for their fixtures. They could've and should've taken first place. We have the best draw of all. But then again I always remember Getafe and Zenit. While one could've emabarrassed us, the other one DID :evil: (4-1) So it would be embarrassing if Sporting kicked us out, and that's possible.

Woah, this feels cool!
