  7. nirvanutdketki says:

    Viva Ronaldo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. tom c says:

    good. think we needed this.

  9. Costas says:

    Just the draw we wanted after our half assed approach to the tournament for over a year now. Hopefully no United fans will sing Viva Ronaldo songs on the day, lol.

  10. kanchelskis says:

    Good draw to have, what with City being out.

    If we can conquer Madrid, we’ll know we may be good enough to go on and win it.

    If we can’t, we’ve only played two more games in Europe than our title rivals. More or less cancels out the fatigue issue.

    Got to beat the best at some point if you’re going to win it.

  11. Marq says:

    Woohoo, bring it on!

  12. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Goodness fuck… We’re going to see the real cunt in jose now. Players pulling out imaginary cards and diving. Madrid are favourites despite our home advantage but anything can happen in the champions league. If united pull this one out of the bag then we are,dancing but i see a lot of rollercoaster drama coming, hold onto your seats people.

  13. Unitedforeva says:

    This might be a good time to meet Real & Mourinho. Bring them on!

  14. kanchelskis says:

    Subtexts a-plenty, but the one to watch for me is that this could be the tie that makes a man out of Rafael.

    If we progress, it will not be without 180 minutes of concentration, confidence and quality from the little man.

  15. Marq says:


    Haha, cmon mate, its a glamour tie, couldnt get any bigger than this. The matches between us & Jose have never really been that ugly. So lets just look forward to it

  16. gerkeo says:

    Reading the Spanish press, it looks like the chances of Jose being there in February are slim.

  17. parryheid says:

    That’s Real fucked then out in the first round nae luck Jose.

  18. Marq says:

    All the big guns facing off each other, if we can get through this and somehow Barca gets eliminated, we’ll really be in a big shout

  19. Marq says:

    Galatasaray v Schalke 04
    Celtic v Juventus
    Arsenal v Bayern Munich
    Shakhtar Donetsk v Borussia Dortmund
    AC Milan v Barcelona
    Real Madrid v Manchester United
    Valencia v Paris St Germain
    Porto v Malaga

  20. matt says:

    im keen for this tie, at first i thought fuck me its a tough one but we haven’t played madrid for a while and im sure the boys will be up to the challenge

  21. shamas says:

    Concerned about the leaky defence.. hopefully by February Vidic will have an extended run of games and solidify our defence, furthermore with kagawa back he can rediscover his Borussia Dortmund form to add to our amazing attack, we will be formidable. On the draw fuck yeah! I’ve been waiting for this tie ever since Ronaldo left, if we can’t defend go kamikaze on these fuckers!

  22. Proverb says:

    Ogggghh!! This is going to be one cracker tjo!!!

    Hell yeah bring the les blancos, this club thrives on this sort of matches

  23. mara says:

    AC Milan v Barcelona
    Real Madrid v Manchester United

    this 4 are the strongest… we will see final before final…United, RM and Barca…Milan is not our level…but because of history…lets give them a chance…
    Sometimes i think that they already decided who will play with who…because, you can see that all teams who play each other, are similary strong…
    If we beat RM…then we can lose in quater final, i don t care…
    If we talk about money i want see us in final, but we will meet there Barca again and lose…

  24. slim says:

    We got Madrid, Fucking get in.
    Please dear God let Ronaldo love in be at a minimum.
    We’ve got a real European tie on our hands . Last few been meh clubs, costas back me up with some stats please.
    Ha,the gaffer may have predicted it and made frequent trips to new york to get some inside knowledge from pep

  25. Proverb says:

    Haven’t really payed attention to the draw. All I know is
    that we’ve drawn Madrid and Arsenal have Bayern.
    Anyone know who City drew?
    Help me anyone :D :D :D

  26. slim says:

    This is going to be big. The lads will be up for it ,SAF too. Cant wait.
    I tell you now,battle for places is gonna much heated. Ah,if players like Clevs,Jones pick up form and maintain that level, we’re in for a trest. Rafa too could be huge. Léta hope we’d have a settled no.1 by then

  27. Cadelin says:

    Proverb, Citeh got Stoke away on a cold wet tuesday night.

  28. Ice Cube says:

    poetry, not bad. We could do with another Keane. I player like him would turn this side into world beaters.

  29. belfast red. says:

    Good poem. We have been missing a leader and wee will need 1 for Europe. Just glad vid is comming bck, i hope hes in top forum by then.
