Looking for Guy Fawkes to finish the job
Well, well, well. Real Madrid dumped out of the Chumps League by Ajax tonight. Rejoice !

Spurs through to the last eight after some wretched recent performances.

Poch to Madrid in the summer ?

Incredible turnaround for United last night at PSG.

Penalty was debateable (I said "no pen") but it's swings and roundabouts as the miscreant should have been sent off in the first leg before scoring.

Never a pen in a month of Sunday’s

I hate united with a passion but I’m glad they won as it again shows how ****e the French league is and again shows the quality of the premier league given the team in 4th in our league beats the team top of that

Also PSG are dirty cheats who dive, whinge and are constantly at the refs

The MU was worth it for Neymar’s reaction alone. I wonder how long it’ll be before the PSG bubble bursts: I get the money but surely it can’t be that enjoyable plodding through the league hoping to get half a dozen CL games a season can it? Wonder what odds you’d get on all four English clubs in the semis?

Oh, I thought it was a pen.

I too thought it was a pen. When you turn your back to the ball you don't do so by making your arms bigger which is what i felt he did. Usually you'd tuck your arms in. It just looked an unnatural movement on the replay and although i can see how it could be given either way, IMO it was a penalty. That's also from someone who dislikes Man U. Although i like them a bit more now they've sacked one of the most detestable managers in football. Also good to see the annoyance of another thoroughly detestable man in football - Neymar.

Liverpool v Porto.
Ajax v Juventus.
Spurs v Man City.
Barcelona v Man Utd.

Very interesting draw and potential history to be re-created by Solskjaer 20 years after that final.

Although United were drawn second, they'll play at home first as City were also drawn to play away first - in order to avoid both clubs playing at home the same week.

United to beat Barcelona?

Cloud cuckoo land
I don't see any reason why not. United at home will be a big ask for anyone visiting Old Trafford at the moment and if they can go to the Nou Camp with something to hold on to then Barca are going to have to fight and scrap every inch of the way to make it. Barca aren't what they were a couple of seasons back.

I'm an MUer since I was a little kid but unless Messi is injured I don't think MU has a chance, especially with the 2ng leg at Barca.
