    Happy enough with that. Real aren't in their best form (although they have some time to turn that around) and obviously Rafa will have a good knowledge of them.

    WOO! Inter and Man Utd. What a game! I pictured that to be the final or something. Should be a great encounter as we all know the champions Man Utd and Inter who this year I consider the toughest side in Europe. You will see what I mean. When they want to win they will. I think they might even crush Man Utd since Ibra, MAicon and Muntari never EVER miss a chance:DD

    I have to agree I mean you only have to look at Manchester United vs Madrid a few years back Utd were 3-1 down from the first leg and won the second leg 5-3 i think only to go out :( Utd have a good opportunity to beat Inter but I just fear a scoring draw which would send us out.. Sporting are definately out might as well send out a reserve team.

    It's funny indeed, but I'm worried about the repercussions it will have on the country ranking. Less teams in 10/11. Hope Porto and Braga can keep up their game on the CL and UEFA CUP respectively.

    I think this is a very subjective posting...i'm not a Sportinjg fan, i'm not even Portugese but i think Sporting IS a great club with all the great players they gave to football...

    Besides that, i remember AC Milan being absolutely being outplayed by Deportiva La Coruna a couple of years ago...still i think nobody will argue that they are not a big European club...

    Sporting collapsed totally but that happens...it can alos happen to Benfica or Porto or Barcelona or other big clubs.

    I think you are jealous that Sporting is doing beter than Benfica this year...

    The match wasn't even that one-sided.
    The first half was 50-50, maybe even with advantages for Sporting. But when they conceded the second goal it seemed like they totally lost all hope and stopped playing altogether.

    I hope the guys don't over-rate this victory, unless they plan to lose their fourth Bundesliga game out of five this Sunday in Bremen.

    Bremen kicking out Milan yesterday was the real shocker for me. Down 0:2 and still managed to come back ... should be a classy match (as always) in Bremen.

    I understand your point of view my friend. I must admit I was joking about Sporting, they are a great club and I really support them in those european clashes (the damn country ranking). However, as you well said, Sporting is mainly known because of the young talent players they produce. If you check their european campaigns you can't find a big win, I mean, victories against top teams (ok they were in UEFA Cup final in 2005 lost in Alvalade against CSKA Moscow). Benfica and Porto, especially this one, have achieved great results recently. That's the difference. Sporting have no status in the world of football different the other two portuguese giants.

    And we are 3 points ahead in league! :P

    About Bayern München I hope they beat Bremen. I can't find a damn Bayern's shirt here in my town! :RANT:

    Who's the girl in your avatar pal? yum yum!! :P

    Gotta say the Sporting result shocked me as well!

    I"m most curious about the 2nd leg of Porto and Atletico now though. Will the Madrid club use its new found confidence after outdoing Barca and all of its talented squad's potential to fullest in their visit to Portugal and take them to Q-finals? Or will Porto's far superior experience in CL be a big factor and that combined with playing this 2nd one at home, take the Portuguese through. I have a feeling it might be the latter but hope for an impressive and exciting match with both teams showcasing their very best.

    That is also the match i'm most looking forward too PLF...i hope Atletico can qualify but i think Porto will...they have more team spirit.

    The other interesting matches: Man Utd - Inter and Barcelona - Lyon.

    I think Lyon still have chance to qualify too...

    Atletico have to be the most fun side to watch in Europe. One of best attacks in the world with one of the worst defenses. Entertainment GUARANTEED :P

    I'd love to see them go through. Filled with some of my favorite players like Aguero, Maxi, Simao, and little Luis Garcia.

    Hope all the Italian teams go through. Had enough of the "EPL is the best league in the world" bollocks.

    Come on Ibra, fucking turn up in Europe this time.

    Ibra wont turn up mate :LOL: He's a good player but he's never done enough in Europe for some reason. Athetico have the potential to be the dark horses in Europe,

    I think Inter have a chance against us but if im honest I just think were a better team then them. Especially with Rooney playing we'll have that edge (he would have got us a goal in Milan)

    I would also like to Inter to win, but i agree with YounGun, Zlatan has never delivered on the big occasions...

    Panathinaikos was the joke of the day losing at home from Villiarreal while all these days they were sure that they would progress to the quarter finals. It takes more than luck and referee help to reach the stage of 8. And Panathinaikos had only those but nothing more so they became the whore of Europe.

    Sporting should be banned from CL for the next 10 years at least. I'm really ashamed by a team of my country be so bad.
