Champions League Quarters! Ahh Ha Ha!!! Man United Vs Roma & Chelsea Vs Fenerbahce!!!

I DON"T BELIEVE IT!!!:D :D I thought that Totti crying at Old Trafford would be once in a lifetime! Before the draw I hoped and prayed for two ties. Man United/Roma was one but Fenerbahce vs Chelsea was the one I was truly gunning for. I truly, truly believe Fenerbahce can beat Chelsea and I will personally cater for Zico's birthday if he pulls it off. Incidentally the other ties aren't too bad mostly. Liverpool Vs Arsenal. Finally see if the Scousers Champions League form extends to English teams outside of Stamford Bridge. Barca play Schalke, big let off there for the Catalans. Still Roma of all teams.:D

Oh dear, not again.

More concerned for the travelling fans :eek: than the results :cool:.

In any case, deja vu or not, this is the stage not for the faint-hearted. The eventual champion have to have the self belief and be prepared to beat everybody else in one breath to clinch Europe's most prestigious trophy. Think we should not be too wary of our opponents but ourselves. And the only way to do it is to do it...

Oh and plenty of LUCK!!:)

i afraid i would see 2 cautious teams playing. the memories of last season would sure haunt roma, but we in the other hand, would also think that there would not be a repeat of last season's result

They'll have learned their lesson. I expect the Rome leg to be ridiculously tight. Roma will be looking to bag 1 goal and then stop United grabbing the precious away goal. I predict maybe a 1 - 1 in Rome. I see a repeat of Lyon. What a dour game that was, both of them. As for the return leg I think we can expect an even more defensive game from Roma. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up exactly like the Lyon tie right down to the scoreline.

Manchester United Happy With AS Roma Draw



http://goal.com/en/Articolo.aspx?ContenutoId=621552

Manchester United club secretary Ken Ramsden was happy with today's Champions League draw that sees them pitted against AS Roma.

The two teams have already met four times over the past 12 months, with the English champions famously thrashing Roma 8-3 on aggregate at this stage of the competition last year.

The clubs also met in the group stages this campaign, with Man Utd winning at Old Trafford, and the game at the Stadio Olimpico finishing as a draw.

“It's a good draw,†said Ramsden.

“As a fan I'm glad we're not playing an English team, it loses that flavour.

“We are away first which will please the manager. We have a good record against them so there's no reason why we should be afraid that's for sure.â€

Ramsden also commented on the possible security concerns, following the nasty scenes that marred last year's match in Rome.

“We are hopeful that everything will work well, “he said.

“If the fans follow the advice they're less likely to have a problem. That's the key message even at this early stage. If they do what they are asked to do they will be fine.

“This season the Roma club put free buses from the city centre into the stadium. Those that used them had absolutely no problems at all. Those who went to the groundindependently, one or two had a problems.â€
