Real Madrid Or Liverpool - We Can't Lose!

Liverpool face Real Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League and this is really a dream draw for Manchester United.

On the one hand, there is Real Madrid - arrogant, hypocritical, sneaky. They use any means they can think of to lay their hands on the best players in the planet though they fail in their quest with increasing frequency. Everything that is despisable about modern football is embodied by Real Madrid. I'm never sad to see them lose.

On the other hand, there's Liverpool who... well, who are Liverpool, I don't need to say more. We all know that this is their year, and if not then next year is definitely theirs and if not... you get the point.

The downside is that one of these will be in the last eight. The positive thing is that one of them definitely won't be. I'd say Real Madrid will go through, that would be my preference if I had to pick one of them. But really, neither would be missed from the competition.

The most successful Spanish side against the most successful English side, the 2 true successful powerhouses of European football meeting eachother. Real Madrid V Liverpool, what a tie. Hopefully we'll see Mourinho running down the touchline at Old Toilet again, leaving whisky nose to choke on his chewing gum and blaming the referee, the FA, UEFA, FIFA and my gran for the defeat.

You mancs dont half talk some nonsense. With your petty haul of 3 european titles... To say that Liverpool wouldnt be missed is just teh talk of someone who is in all honesty quite thick. We are legendary in Europe while your club STILL lives in our shadow in Europe ,If i was on crack and i was a Manc "God Forbid" id be more concerned about Uniteds chances of beating Milan after that embarassing performance you put it in during your last European display against nothing team AaB.

Touched some nerves did we? Technically we've won TWO CL titles whiles you'vw on just ONE but Liverpool are all about History arent they? Haha Aalborg? We have the longest unbeaten runs in Europe at home so I'm not worried about a game against Aalborg that meant nothing! I'm just worried about getting banned from Europe again by your supremely intelligent fans!

Forever in your shadow? I'd be worried about catching us once we overhaul your trophy which we undoubtedly will. 10 prem titles and you have NONE - tell me which team's making more progress?? Hahahahaha. If you mean forever in your shadow when it comes to breaking into player's houses and stealing in general then of course!

"10 prem titles and you have NONE". Ha. So the game started in the early nineties did it? Do you suck Sky's cock too? You can be the richest and the biggest. But never the Greatest. Get used to it sunshine.

Get used to it? We're one, two trophies from wiping away the only thing you cling on to about your club. Maybe you should start getting used to being second best veeerrryy soon! I'd be a terrified Liverpool fan atm! We have been the greatest since the 90s and up until now, your time has passed, get used to it!

Jose makes me laugh when he says Rooney should be banned. He wasn't concerned about it before: he's only worried now Inter have drawn United, and that, in the sort of form he's in right now, Rooney could well knock them out in February

Happy with Real drawing Liverpool; my only worry is that we'll get the winners of that tie

I am slightly annoyed with the ties; although we could well go through against Inter, as long as we play as well as we can. My point is, Arsenal and Chelsea (Roma and Juventus) finished runners-up in their group, yet have easier ties than us and Liverpool (Inter, Real Madrid) who finished first. We have the advantage of being at home in the second leg, but finishing top doesn't seem to have been that useful

Cautiously optimistic about this tie though; I think if we can get a score draw at the San Siro (something we've failed to do on our last two visits) we should be able to finish the job at home. At least this time, unlike the other two, we go to Italy first, so we'll know what we need to do to go through when we play infront of our own fans

ForeverUnited you some up the abstract mentaliy of Mancs , he way in which you rely on an irrelevent name change in a competiton as a means of trying to catch our achivements. You talk of technically?..Techniclly nothing my friend. Its still the same competition , the fact that you rely on a name change is truley itiful , though something ive grown to expect fro actually makes me pity you and your club. Until youve done what weve done , achieved what weve achieved you are and will always e in our shadow. You muppet the league is the league regardless of name, and u still are behindus in itles even though we took a 2 year break you STILL ARE BEHIND US, you are no threat this season. After that pitiful perfrmance you just put in against Stoke today i laugh at your threat. You are pitiful. Learn how to beat a top 4 club before you start mouhing off aout the title because bsed on your useless record against the other top 4 this season every ime you open your mouths you embarass youselves.

After watching you draw at home to STOKE, Fulham, West Ham and Hull, clearly you are no threat! I LAUGH OUT LOUD at your threat and that fact that you say we are no threat this season. Hahah I would like to see you on here in May when you're THIRD! Of course we're still behind you but ONE trophy behind really isnt that much is it? Liverpool are done, your time is up, we are the past, present and future! You will sit there, we'll surpass all your '18 league titles' and your club and fans will look as stupid as they do whenever they see us win something they never can win! Even BLACKBURN has won a prem trophy and you havent! Aren't you even ashamed to come on here?? If you look at the trophies we've won since the 90s and yours, clearly only ONE team is moving forward! So yes wew are behind you but how long do you think that'll last? Not very. Hahaha please off you go you thieving fool!

"Even BLACKBURN has won a prem trophy......" Good grief, you're clearly finding the simple point about the rebranding of trophies just too difficult to understand aren't you sunshine? Thick as pig***** and a Manc. When do you get day release for your annual trip to OT?
