We are finally there. Four English teams ( Mant Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal) out of the eight that qualified. The other four are Barcelona (Spain), Roma (Italy), Fenebahce (Turkey) and Schalke (Germany).
Some ( the canal + guys) say that this will be the consolation prize for England as it ll watch Euro 2008 with no particular interest.
They also add (since Lyon is out) that Arsenal is the favourite, with its gamut of frenchies headed by Arsene.
So what the draw of the quarter finals( scheduled for friday 14/03) has in store? Liv’pool vs chelsea, Man utd vs Barca, Arsenal vs Roma? Que du gratin…
The pity is that anyone can play anyone in the last eight, meaning English teams may be drawn against each other.
What about Man Utd vs Liv’pool, for the kops to forget the previous humiliation?
