Champions League Draw - in depth assessment

Lucky fuckers Chelsea, who played Olympiakos in the last round, now only have the face Fenerbahce for a place in the semis. Neither Arsenal nor Liverpool will be happy at drawing each other, though the Reds do have home advantage second. Both Barca and Schalke fans will be pleased - Barca for obvious reasons, Schalke because they've got the glamour team. ManU and Roma wont be so happy - last season's match will still be in the minds of the Giallorossi, while ManU fans will be ordering body armour for the trip.

David Pleat, ex-Spurs manager, TV pundit and dedicated kerb crawler, assesses the draw:
