Over the next week and a bit we will be seeing some dramatic events surely. At this stage last season Man U were lucky to escape from Rome with an away goal, but a week later totally ripped a new hole into AS bit of Roma. Milan were also knocking out Bayern Munich. Can it be a coincedence that Barcelona play a German team? and could have 3 English teams in the SF, similar to Milan... maybe so, maybe not... on barca's form, they must watch out for Schalke though, not as easy as they may expect.

In any case this years QFs should be a good watch. Probably most intriguing is Roma - Man Utd... but certainly the All english clash is being hyped up, particularly on these shores.

I am betting on 4 draws for the first games. lets see.

Man Utd fans are shitting bricks we'll wipe them out in the final.
Outwitted in the 1st and outplayed in the 2nd, deal with it brothers.
Something differant about Liverpool-Chelsea this time though is that Liverpool will be at Anfield in the 1st leg so we cant go away 1st, batten down the hatches and try and get ouf of there with a draw or narrow defeat and then rely on Anfield.

I think it makes it a totally differant ball game in terms of tactics than the other matches, and there also wont be a personal rivalry between the two coaches who dont want to lose to eachother.
I thought Fabregas was running on empty the whole match, i know Babel was fresh and is quick but he skinned him bad.I bet Cesc wishes he didnt bring the freekick that got countered forward 20 yards.
