    Yes. Last game being the league game. City also play United that Wednesday after the league game. That'll be a huge week.

    Sorry, meant to ask for the date of the games; not kick-off time. Which game we play Tuesday and which Wednesday.

    All the media attention will be on city/Spurs and man u/Barca and Liverpool will just slip under the radar.

    In that order is actually perfect. I fully expect Citeh to have too much for Spurs over two legs which will give Spurs extra motivation in the league game after they have been knocked out of the champions league by them.

    That is the draw we wanted and I know that City will ultimately come through those games with Spurs but they will hopefully be absolute slogs, the concern that I have is that Spurs might have to empty the tank a bit more on the CL front and won't be able to keep the intensity going into the league games but that's the few weeks that our hopes of winning the league rest on for Man City, all of their toughest remaining games condensed into a few week, if they come through that unscathed we'll have to make do with only another CL trophy for our pile this season!

    Couldn't have asked for a better draw. Build up a good lead at home to Porto and we could have a comfortable enough second leg. Get through that and it is anybodys competition but I'd expect Barca to be awaiting us in the semi final so it should be Liv v Bar & Man City v Juve.

    However I wouldn't be surprised to see Tottenham give Man City their fill of it providing they have everyone fit and that is the key. The League is a separate competition and will take care of itself so I wouldn't be getting too bogged down in timing or order of fixtures you'll only wreck your head.

    Some of us actually have no problem at all doing this without having a catastrophic brain aneurysm. :p

    Should we come through our QF against Porto we also have a home fixture against Huddersfield on the previous Friday before (presumabkly) the Barca first leg fixture in the Nou Camp. So at least 4 days rest for that, perfect. Same applies for our first leg QF against Porto with a Friday night league fixture before that.

    We probably couldn't have asked for a better draw but let's nor underestimate Porto. They are in the last 8 on merit and Robbo will be missing for the first leg. But we have to be confident.

    As an aside, I would absolutely love it if Luis was to score a couple in Old Toilet and ram it down the throats of the rags.

    Actually fancy Spurs myself to do City provided they don't sit off them like they did at home in the league.

    Citys defence isn't that great so hopefully Spurs go full pelt at them in both legs.

    Couldn't of asked for a better draw for us!

    They topped a bang average group with shalke in 2nd and city crushed them. No guarantees but I'll be very surprised if Liverpool don't beat porto.

    Surely it has too now. Why change it that would mean having to change Chelsea's Europa game to the Wednesday.

    Great draw. Hopefully City and Spurs knock lumps out of each other.

    Camera at the draw caught Andy Coles reaction when he realised there was only Utd and Barca left in the pot - a headslap Homer Simpson would have been proud of :D
