Just a bruise. The big whimp.

Hopefully fit to break this record on Sunday.

Mad. Lots of dream matches in that draw which will bring in big ratings. Coincidence?

0.00005% is "roughly" a one in 2 million chance? :lol: That doesn't mean it couldn't happen, anyway. And I'd have thought that with all the rules about who can't play each other at this stage, the odds of getting the same draw would have been smaller. Can't be bothered to do the maths though, so I'll take their word for it.

I was going to run it through for fun - but since the ties only have to be the same rather than be drawn in exactly the same order I can't be bothered to think it through properly.

Watford and Palace are in the Champions League :shock:

Yeah I'm watching that game. Both teams are really good. The score doesn't do the closeness of the game justice!!

Someone's getting a little confused


2139:
BBC Radio 5 live's Robbie Savage from the Bernabeu

"There wasn't as much intensity from both teams in the second half as the first, Ferdinand, Evans, Jones and Carrick were fantastic. United will be happy with a point but with the attacking players Real have I think they will score at Old Trafford.

"I don't think the Old Trafford pitch will suit them, it's a tough pitch to play on. I think United will be favourites with the away goal behind them and a fantastic atmosphere at Old Trafford to come. United will be happy with the draw but could have won it at the end."

Not Champions League, but it wasn't having it's own thread...

and they're not happy that Drogba was allowed to play

Jermain Jones though, we should have kept him. Although whether he'd still be here following a relegation and clearout of anyone on a high-ish wage is another story...

We didn't really get a chance to keep him, though? It was a similar situation to Bradley Orr with us, a new manager took over Schalke whilst Jones was on loan with us and wanted him back in their squad. Understandably.
