But they also scored three past Rangers ;)

Not an easy game and is probably the toughest game that we could have got but certainly still beatable but we will have to be at the top of our game and hope that Vidic and Ferdinand are still in top form.

Tough draw, but we're more than capable of beating them. If we can nick a score draw away, we should go through because i dont see them winning at Old Trafford.

I suppose they're all going to be tough in some respects. If we can't beat them with the squad we've got, we've no hope against the likes of Milan, Barca etc.

Fair point mate this squad is as strong as any in the CL if it doesnt have enough to get past the weakest Lyon side in years then I'll be very suprised

Should get 3000 tickets.

I have booked flights for £89- not bad considering I missed the date being announced due to a meeting. Flying out Easyjet from Stansted day of game and coming back next evening on a late flight. Loadsof hotels to pick from.

Tough game, but I don't think they are as good as they were a couple of seasons ago. Play to our strengths and we should go through comfortably.

They're not the side they were, long as we keep that Benzema kid quiet we should be fine. Got to agree Jonny & Hetixo, if we're not up to beating these its a poor show all round.

2nd leg at home too, we've really got to be confident.

To be honest there wasn't really any teams that desperately needed to be avoided. We should be beating all of them if we've got any real credentials to go the whole way.

I was more interested in the other games to see who we could potentially avoid in the next round if we should (as expected) get past Lyon. Good to see the Arse and the bin-dippers getting tough draws. I don't really fancy either of them to go through against the class of the two Milan sides. Barca haven't got an easy game either having been drawn against Celtic.

Some very interesting games coming up.

Not an easy one, they've won the French title six times in a row and are currently on top, so it will be a tricky one against them. Having said that, if we play the way we have been playing we should take care of them.
