Im fucking pissed right now, Real Madrid is incapable of winning the games we really need to. We only have La Liga left to win again.

TORRES!! REINA!! LIVERPOOL!!

the spaniards carried the reds to victory rather nicely.
(i know i'm late, but i just finished watching the match after having taped it through the night, and i did a good job at not finding out the outcome during the day).

Milan looked pretty strong in the first half, but you got the sense that Liverpool was going to go through pretty much the whole time (what with the 2-0 lead on aggregates).
Ibrahimovic looked pretty bad through the match. Cruz was good, but was ROBBED by reina on a few occasions.

Woot!

you'll never walk alone.

I'm really excited to see what the draw is for the next round. I hope We (United) draws some team like Schalke or Fenerbache. But likely, we'll probably draw something really tough like Arsenal.

Hoops, as an Arsenal supporter, I really really hope we don't play United next round. I think right now that would be the worst thing for us. Schalke would be very nice to play against next round.

I don't know how Barca is going to fare without Messi, but if they face any of the English teams next round, they're finished.

Barcelona has being playing pretty bad, but they still are the best team in the world talent wise by a mile.

Better than United? Better than Chelsea? I'm not so sure about that..and I wouldn't say they're (Barca) better by a mile. They weren't that impressive versus Celtic..and those guys haven't clicked all year long. The loss of Messi is really going to hurt not to mention Marquez's foot injury and Toure's back problems.

Attackers: Ronaldinho, Messi, Etoo, Henry, Bojan, Giovanni.
Midfield: Iniesta, Deco, Xavi, Toure yaya.
Defenders: Milito, Abidal, Zambrotta, Puyol, Marquez, Thuram.

Only thing it sucks is their goal keeper. They are better not by a mile, by 10 miles, and this is from a Real Madrid Fan.

I agree tommy, thats what I said, they are playing badly, but they can beat any team when they are working well together.

I hope Henry continuous to do crappy for Barca. I'd LOVE to play them next round. Absolutely LOVE to play them.

And yeah, talent wise they are the best, but as Chelsea found out and Real Madrid about 5 years ago, having the best players at every position and on your bench won't win you shit if you don't have team players.

We got a pretty decent match-up against Roma.

But Arsenal -Liverpool is by far the best matchup. And they play in the EPL in between the UFA legs. So these 2 will play each other 3 times in 1 week. So sweet.

I LOVE this matchup. I'd be surprised if Liverpool took it against us. Barca with an easy draw. Plus, am I the only one hoping for a Chelsea upset right now?

I want Man. United to Kill Roma. I want to see a Barcelona - United semis that should really good. Liverpool arsenal should be the best games of the championship. I think I will go with arsenal, but I like both teams so I dont care. Id LOVE to see fenerbahce winning.
