How much you wanna bet United get the easiest possible draw in Ajax (no disrespect to them) and the Solsjkaer love-in continues when they beat them?

United will draw Ajax and City will draw Porto who they will easily blow away.

Ajax will beat United. In fact, I'd say that Porto, Spurs and United would be the top3 best draws for Ajax. Allegri's Juve would also be in trouble with Ajax if they didn't have that one lad named Ronaldo up front

What we can learn from liverpool is that the key to modern football is speed. Quick legs, quick feet on the ball and a quick mind. Most of our players have none and our manager needed 7 months to realize Alonso is shit.

my all speed team (based off what we have)

GK Kepa

CB Éder Militão or Manuel Akanji

CB Rudiger

LB Alex Telles or Ferland Mendy or Junior Firpo

RB Aaron Wan-Bissaka or Achraf Hakimi

DMF Thomas Partey or Diadie Samassékou or Denis Zakaria or Amadou Diawara

CMF Kante

AMF Kai Havertz or Julian Draxler or Talisca

LW Hirving Lozano or Ismaïla Sarr

RW Nicolas Pepe or Leon Bailey

CF Timo Werner

 

that would be the paciest team on the planet

So true.

We got away with for a couple of seasons, when Pedro and Willian were still at their best fitness levels. Willian's dribbling pace couple of seasons ago was electric. He could easily take the ball from a congested midfield and make it to the final third.

Now we hardly have anyone with that ability. Only Hazard and Kante in midfield, and maybe CHO from the bench.

To top it off, both our CF's, Giroud and Higuain, can hover around the box, but can't be expected to break at speed.

Let the english media wankfest continue, if you look at the bigger picture, this only helps the english uefa coeficcient, and also that england is getting their pride back, be it in the last World Cup reaching the semis after so many years and english teams reaching the latter stages of champions league. When was the last time 4 english teams were in the quarter finals? thats right 08/09 season (Arse, us, United and Pool), correct me if im wrong, and who won it that year? thats right, Barca, altough at our cost in the process, (fuck you Ovrebo you cunt :middlefinger:). I hope of course that one of Barca or Juve wins it, can you imagine the endless wankfest if one of the Mancs, Pool or Spurs clinches it? Pls God nooo...

This is why I'm worried. All 4 English teams are in the quarters, and that means there is a much higher chance of at least 1 English team in that final again.

Just hoping next round is City v Spurs and Liverpool v United. Perfect round.

If Chels and Arse go though in the EL

6 of the final 8 teams in both cups would be English

6 out of 16 teams.

Liverpool key is more than just pace it is their front 3. That what make them really2 special. It is difficult to assemble that kind of front 3. They are excellent as individual but they combine even better.

I hate to say it but that was a massive performance that Liverpool threw up last night. VvD is a fucking monster of a defender.

Devastating going forward.

I think the game was always gonna go Liverpools way after one of Lewandowski and James never managed to get onto that cutback right across the goal mouth from Gnabry or Rafinha in the second half, if that had resulted in a goal I think Bayern would of managed to go through. Bayern look a shell of the team they once were though, they have still got amazing players but theres something missing. Think they showed Liverpool too much respect at home actually, played within themselves, Ancelotti, Pep, or Heynckes Bayern would never have played like that at home. Against anyone.

'Zouma over Laporte?!' - Man City fans are incredulous over France's latest squad announcement

https://www.football.london/chelsea-fc/players/zouma-over-laporte-fans-incredulous-15974098

 

Kurt Zouma has been called up to the France squad by Didier Deschamps for their games with Moldova and Iceland - but some fans can't believe he's been picked over Aymeric Laporte.

The Chelsea man, who is currently on-loan at Everton, has been included in the World Cup winners' squad along with Raphael Varane, Samuel Umtiti and Presnal Kimpembe having made 30 appearances for his loan side this season.

However, Deschamps has excluded Manchester City's Laporte from his squad once more in favour of the 24-year-old who made the move from Stamford Bridge to Goodison Park on Deadline Day in the summer.

He's not really made Maurizio Sarri stand up and take notice of him with his form this season so far, however, having only kept seven clean sheets over the course of the campaign.

Laporte, meanwhile, was overlooked for the France squad for the World Cup and could still switch allegiances to Spain, something that may look even likelier after his latest omission.

Insane that Laporte has ZERO caps. He is a top 5 or 6 CB in the world.

Shame we cannot get him to go for British citizenship and play for England. Our WC chances would go much higher.

Don't worry. Spurs, Liverpool and United don't have any chance to win whole thing.

That’s what people said about us in 2012.
