    Milan

    The sight of Bale,Lennon and VDV at WHL tearing apart that ageing AC Milan mid/def would be very pleasing

    Basil or Braga would be a good bet perhaps, think we can take all of them though tbh but we must sort the defending out or we will come unstuck big time.

    AC Milan has a nice ring to it though.

    I think Milan or Valencia would be good to avoid. Should be good games to watch no matter who it is though!:y15:

    I have also had the feeling that we are going to play against Lyon. MYbe this round or the next but well see. All great game and I fancy us to beat any of those sides. T hudd could be fit by then too.

    I'm sorry but I think neither Braga nor Shakhtar will have the chance to meet us at the 1/8 finals. Shakhtar will surely get at least a point tomorrow and finish top of their group leaving Arsenal second.

    this might sound stupid now considering two guys already said it but I too have had the feeling we will meet with Lyon. and I will be happy with such a draw, they are hardly the force they were some years ago.

    dont care who we draw, if we are injury free then i dont fear anyone of those teams at the lane, we gotta learn to play a bit tighter away

    From teams listed above, I would only fear AC Milan and Valencia.

    But we can play and show our quality even with them, if we'll be injury free.
    And with some new quality signings in January, we could easily win. :)

    It's good Shakhtar will probably be first in their group, cause they're really strong.

    We need to keep clear of the braga/shakhtar. Both are deceptively tough. Going to either's ground for the second leg could cause some serious problems. Just ask arsenal.

    For me obviously AC Milan are the marquee draw, but Lyon could be a great tie i'd favour us to win

    I would love to play Milan too. But you know what I would love more? Going through. For that reason I hope we get an easier matchup than the team at the top of the league table in Italy. I do think we could beat any team we are paired with, but it seems only sensible to want to easiest road possible. Watching us play great sides is wonderful, but there will be plenty of time for that in the later rounds :D.

    Lads lads lads..........

    While I want us to do well in this competition just as badly as you lot do lets think about our legacy.

    We have done it thus far the hard way. The Spurs way!

    • We have been drawn in the group of death.
    • We gave had to out score all of our opponents.
    • We have come from behind on numerous occasions

    Why would you want to change the script now?

    I want AC Milan. I want Real Madrid. I want Baca-fookin-lona!!!

    I want to go absolutely fookin ballistic when we score against these heavy weights. I want all of these huge clubs to come to the lane to have us shout or bollox off at them before the old gal gets torn down. She deserves it.

    We fookin deserve it.

    I wouldnt want it any fookin other way.

    We are far from comfy in the Prem so we are not guaranteed a spot in the lime light next season. We have to make the fookin most of it IMO.
