    No. I said you didn't say the same thing about Mourinho even though it applies and you've keep harping on about it as regards Guardiola.

    Either way I'm not just referring to you personally. It applies to a whole host of other posters on this forum and people elsewhere. Take today for example. You have a poster who very likely never said the same thing about Mourinho on top of the fact that the manager of the club he supports didn't have the balls to take the Aston Villa post and instead chose paltry Liverpool.

    So much wrong with it it's amazing. Only the challenge bit is arguable and Tiki Taka not being related to Guardiola, though I think it's clear he thinks it is.

    Good thing it was only him and not Alaba, Neuer or Juve actually being a top side.

    Phew, fortunate draw for Bayern on paper after a damn tough nut in Juve. Hope the team remembers last year's visit to Portugal, though.

    I'd say it's the toughest draw possible for Barca. This is tactically the worst matchup for them. Still tney should go through and win the whole thing anyway.

    Bayern with the easiest draw (on paper). They should go through.

    Real with arguably the best possible draw for them. Wolfsburg has a decent chance since Real seems completely out of sync, but the individual talent should make Real go through.

    PSG City is a golden chance for PSG to finally break the QF spell. Hope they don't blow it. City is certainly dangerous but PSG is favourites I'd say.

    Wow, Real with another easy draw, somebody wants them to do well :sarcasm:

    Definitely the most challenging draw for Barca, PSG City should be an interesting match. PSG definitely favourites but City has potential

    PSG vs Man City is the only exciting matchup.

    Real, Barca, Bayern and PSG will advance.

    And then we'll have to endure Evilo until next year arguing that PSG is a top 3 team in Europe ;)

    Looks like the 1st leg of Barca- Atleti is 3 days after El Clasico.


    As for Real Madrid, they are such a mess right now, I wouldn't be surprised if VFL kick them out

    If we don't make.it passed Wolfsburg, it would be quite the shame.

    Atleti/Barca, lol. At least one of the ******** will be out.

    Top 4 is enough. Was my point years ago that they'd be there. Tough CL draws have prevented them from getting there, but that's where they belong.

    If we beat Wolfsburg, I hope we'll get Barcelona

    I want Barcelona to humiliate us in El Clasico and in the CL

    Who am I kidding...even if that happens, Perez will still be around

    I've got to find another team to root for, until Perez is gone

    Maybe some mid table team

    :laugh:VFL Wolfsburg's Arabic Twitter: "We're lucky for the second time, the easiest opponent in the Quarters is Madrid... We'll win for sure against the worst team in Madrid!"

    :laugh: Nobody respects Madrid




    :(

    PSG easily Barcelona more easy than expected Bayern no worry, the one potential upset would be Wolfsburg.

    Wow. Madrid finally get a tough draw in the CL. Oh wait...

    Tough draw for us in Atleti, but I'd still prefer them to PSG, Bayern or Madrid. We've won it in recent years with tough roads to the Final so I'm confident in the players.
