Europa League 2017/18 - Round of 16 Draw

Recommended Posts

Marseille vs Bilbao stands out the most.

Milan vs Arsenal has potential too.

I think that's a good draw for us, especially with the away leg first. I think we should have more than enough to negotiate it and I presume Wenger will go all in from now on.

No one really knows what Wenger is upto these days, he probably thinks we still have a chance to win the league he is that deluded.

Marseilles vs Bilbao is the only one I think could be a classic.

Arsenal should still qualify, but then again in the second leg last night showed that they need their 100% in both games to defeat Milan.

It's a game we'll take seriously because it's Milan, and a game we should win.

But Arsenal are not all that either, what the hell are we going to win With Welbeck and Iwobi.

So are Arsenal

No you aren't nearly as bad as Milan. This Milan side is incredibly undisciplined and lacks a lot of talent. It's been no secret that they have been reeling the past 7 years.

HAve you seen Arsenal?    Arsenal are the type of team that will get battered at the San Siro and win at home but still go out,   plus Welbeck will be upfront, nearly every player is off form and the defence has 0 confidence. I fancy AC Milan all day in this tie and any other half decent team against this current Arsenal side over 2 legs.

I want a lot more Serie A than I do EPL, but let me be real honest with you for a minute...without cheating, can you name 2 AC Milan players?

Yes I can name a lot more but I am not 5 years old and probably watched a lot more football than you in a lifetime.

i watch both :D 

I'm confident Milan are a better team than Arsenal.

Arsenal may have a couple of individual stars but in comparison, Milan are the better (and bigger) team. 

I think both sides will win their home legs, Milan by a bigger margin at home.

That was a slight mate - It was a state of AC in this current period they are going through. Back in the days when they were loaded with talent, and now a normal fan who doesn't watch a lot of Serie A, can probably name Domma and Bonnuci who I would imagine are the two most well known players.

Well - I hope you are wrong. No doubt I despise AC Milan, but as one of the biggest fans of Serie A, it's a shame what Inter and AC look like now compared to that of just 10 years ago.

Yes I know, but Arsenal are not great either that was my point, even Milan will probably beat Arsenal easy at the San Siro.

I think Milan are on the upward curve after a shit few years. Slightly getting better now. 

I love to reminisce and there's so much nostalgia with both Milan teams. It's about time both got back to where they are and they're both on their way.

We shall see, like I said, I haven't much of Arsenal as of late, but I guess it's not unfathomable that they are also gone downhill like Milan.

Milan have had a new owner but reports have said he has filed for bankruptcy, so have to see what happens there as it might not be true,    AC Milan still have a far better squad than Arsenal right now.

Yes - the history of both Milan sides is loaded with great stories and some of the game's best. At this moment though, both teams are going through their 'forgettable' years.

Hard to know what AC Milan we will get and hard to know what Arsenal we will get but a great tie to get excited by. I do think we'll actually use the best team available from now on and with it being AC Milan, I don't think we'll be complacent in either of the games.

Going to be a very strong quarter final line-up as far as the Europa League goes. Not one tie left between two unglamorous teams.
