Tough ones for Man City and Arsenal.

Clearly there's no easy ones now that Barcelona showed up the 'tic for what they are.

Would have preferred that those games were the Semis!

Bizarre. We'll see if any of the press picks up on it.

If I was being really pedantic they got the home and away draws wrong as well.

So it will be the usual suspects in the later stages again. City possibly the only newcomer although beating Barcelona will be a tall order.

Yawn.

Is definitely becoming boring. When sky lost the Champions league rights to B.T. they felt it wasn't worth what B.T. paid. I believe Champions League vowing accounted for just 3% of Sky Sports viewing so it's nowhere near the draw it used to be. Obviously they'd have preferred to have won the rights but they were not prepared to pay over the odds.

and in the Europa league

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/25402647


Tottenham have been drawn against former manager Juande Ramos's Dnipro in the round of 32 of the Europa League.

Tottenham will face either PAOK or Benfica in the round of 16 if they can beat Dnipro.


Swansea will face Napoli, managed by former Liverpool and Chelsea boss, Rafael Benitez.

If they beat Napoli, Swansea will face the winners of the tie between Porto and Eintracht Frankfurt in the last 16.

They got a bye in this round. They are far too big a club and far more superior than those teams.

No the winner of the champions league only wins the right to play "The Famous" at their new mega stadium.

Don't fancy city, can see Arsenal surprising a few.

Athletico are a real dark horse for the semis this year, great side. Leverkusen v PSG the closest tie.

It was sky who lost out to bt. I'm not sure if bt are going to allow some games to be shown on other free to air channels, I think I remember reading that they were going to show some games on bt sports for free.

Look at the time stamps of the tweets, They are perfectly timed. So I don't believe they were deleted after draw was made! Remember this time last year, the champions league rehearsal was like for like. So fixed it's unreal

Man United could win it if they keep getting draws like that. They are on collision course with Hearts in the semis.

BT has exclusive coverage of live games but I think ITV won the rights to show just the highlights

This is a bit like reading Hello magazine.

They always have an article with loads of pictures from that weeks latest society events, with picture captions like: Mr Rubert Richgit accompanies Lady Mercedes Oldmoney to the ball held last week at the Ritz to raise money for the purchase of quality footwear for distressed gentlefolk. They left later with Sir Cedric Bighouse and Baroness Owen - Yorkshire ( celebrating her 18th birthday ) for a party at Stringfellows.

Very interesting I'm sure ...... but bugger all to do with me.

I appreciate the sentiment, but I still watch the Champions League because you can regularly see the best footballers in the world doing their thing. Yes, it's all a bit stage-managed and the rich-get-richer aspect of it is unappealing, but I'm a football fan and I'm damned if I'm going to deny myself watching the foremost Künstler des Fußball.

(To continue your analogy, this is where despite being unable to identify with the aristocrats featured in the Hello article, you shamelessly ogle the lassies regardless.)

Thats perfection NSF.

Got to admit you are right .... I will probably watch the games on Council Telly, but thats because I love football. I think that the Champions League is killing the game and turning what used to be the excitement of European Football into a borefest. Not because the football isnt good or that the players arnt the best. But with the same 8 or so clubs filling the latter stages every year there is no longer any room for a surprise team in the final. The likes of Malmo, Celtic, Feynoord, Panathanaikos, St Etienne will never be contenders again ... even the once mighty Ajax and Juventus are oot the windae these days.

Perhaps PSG, Man City and Monaco could make an impact this year or next .... but thats on the back of hundreds of millions of vanity money.

The only thing which may happen is that FIFA / UEFA will allow regional leagues which Holland, Belgium and eastern European countries would like to see, giving these countries access to bigger TV markets and therefore access to the money to enable them to compete. Lets hope the likes of us dont get left even further behind in that event.
