    Finally a non-killer CL draw, which of course means we’ll likely bottle it.

    Likely losing one of their better players to Liverpool in January as well, which of course means we'll likely double bottle it.

    Typical Spurs fan optimism, I love it!

    So for the second straight season we draw the Bundesliga leader in the last 16. Hopefully the same thing will happen to them that happened to Dortmund, who started to fall apart at the turn of the year.

    I loathe RB Leipzig, for all the reasons you're supposed to. I always like a massive opponent in Europe, and they couldn't be less qualified. I would be mortified to go out to them, yet will find no great satisfaction in beating them.* I would've preferred any other possible opponent. Leipzig, pffft.

    *I mean, I will very much enjoy eliminating them, but it's not like beating Leipzig is something I'll be talking about in five years. Beating AC Milan stays with you (1972 as well as 2011). Bayern, Inter, Dortmund … we've knocked them all out of Europe. Those are the glory, glory nights.

    Well I mucked that one up. It's the other RB (Salzburg) selling their best player to Liverpool, which of course means we'll triple bottle it.

    This is what I come here for: Unbridled pessimism.

    Actually, they along with Man U have been linked to Haaland from Salzburg. So they could actually get stronger.

    they've been a bit shite of recent - or at least their results have been. They got a draw at Munich the other day, which is ok, I guess, but I know they lost twice to Eintracht Frankfurt (League & Cup) and drew at home to 'gladbach. may not be a bad time to get them.

    Eerily similar to last year - when we drew Dortmund they were 9 points clear, by the time of the first leg, their lead had dwindled to 5 points and by the time of the second leg, their lead had evaporated. Hopefully we get the same result!

    Interesting.

    I still believe Mourinho is a better CL than domestic league coach. The odds favor Lepzig, but i believe thats a bit unfair.

    Since the win with Inter in 2010, he has been mostly a dud in the CL. His last time out with Man U against Sevilla was a disaster.
