Default Champions League, make your predictions...

So do we think it's going to be a predicted whitewash with Barca outclassing all, or will there be an upset?

All I know as a Tottenham born girl I was so proud of Spurs last night, we showed we can play defensively when we have to. Not sure how much further we'll get, but the players and Harry have done a sterling job so far.

So who do you reckon will be in the final and what will the final score be?

It's definitely Liverpool's year.



...no wait, that's not right is it. Lets try Barca instead 2-0 vs United

Ah I know Walthamstow well - my grandad lived there for years.

As for Spurs, who knows, they may suprise us all yet, maybe Harry can be the first English manager to win the Champions League

You maybe right about the final and the score, but don't bring your petty male bickering from another thread into here sonny.

Blimey can't you blokes discuss football without resorting to insults and telling people to 'knob off'

Very difficult to see anyone stopping Barcalona. Another year for Manure to wait to try and catch the Mighty Liverpool's tally of European Honours.

German Reunification
Margaret Thatcher Resigns
Iraq invades Kuwait
Hurricane hits UK
Stephen Hendry, becomes the youngest ever world snooker champion.
German food superstore chain Aldi opens its first British store
British Sky Broadcasting founded.
Manchester United equal the record total for FA Cup wins by winning the final replay 1-0 against Crystal Palace
England's chances of winning the World Cup are ended by a penalty shoot-out defeat at the hand of West Germany in the semi-finals. Gazza cried.

Now then, lets all see if we can remember what other significant event happened that year in the football world.......

Oh, and go City, in the Cup, no not Stoke.

Edit:
The full impact of the Arsenal loss to Birmingham has just hit me (in terms of Europa places)
I withdraw any interest in the FA Cup, as even if it goes to Manchester, Bolton or Stoke, still get the Europa place.
I now pledge my full support to a Spurs European Cup campaign, a hard tough campaign that goes all the way to the final, such a strong fight may they put up in Europe that it will inevitably have an imapact on their league form, maybe a few rested players here and there, a few more injuries, put all Spurs efforts to Europe sacrifice the league.

You won't catch Spurs. Liverpool to get nothing... how good would that be.

I have a feeling its going to be maybe a Chelsea or ManU V Barcelona final but I would not rule out the Shakhtar Donetsk, they were impressive against Roma.

Barcelona are in a class of their own, they are amazing, it looks like its their year for Champions League.

I think their defence is suspect....

Whats this got to do with Liverpool? you bring Liverpool in to everything, you're obsessed.
This is all about Tottenham and a hard fought, tiring, injury causing, glorious European campaign.
