    The only Real player I am scared of is Becks. People slag him off quite a bit but he has been fantastic over the last year, he always gives 100% and its him who starts most plays. I know its not the Arsenal way but I would stick Flamini manmarking him.

    you're right it is the most exciting draw a gooner could hope for and it will also be a great showcase to any new talent we're hoping to bring in.

    bremen would not have suited me in the slightest, they're a very underrated team.

    A perfect game for us. A team that are possibly even less physical than us. This will be all about football, and i will always back this Gunners team when it comes down to a game of skill and ability. I can't wait for this game!

    Go you Gunners!

    Are you kidding?

    Agree that Becks would be a threat (provided he plays on the right wing).

    But what about Ronaldo? He maybe fat. Damn, he may even be a bit ugly. But on his day, he's still very very good. Just ask Manchester United who scored a hatrick at Old Trafford when they met Madrid a few years back.

    What about Zidane? Yeah, the guy's getting old. But he can still be a major threat.

    I don't rate the other players that highly but still they have a lot of quality.

    I'm glad though that Baptista is playing in midfield. His goals have totally dried up since he joined Madrid. Seems that Robinho is also not scoring that much either at the moment, is he?

    Robinho scored a fanstasic goal last weekend. It will be a great match.

    we've got 2 potential wildcards for this particular game.

    Enter Jose Antonio Reyes and Cesc Fabregas.

    reyes almost joined em, i hope he shows em what they missed out on and cesc was "poached" by us from barca's youth academy so i doubt he'll be getting a warm reception from the st bernabau. come on lads!

    Well, what can I say?

    Immediate reaction was that I'm really excited (it certainly beats Bayern Munchen) but I think we'll get tanked.

    That is, unless we can pick ourselves up. I also don't think it's that much of an advantage being at home second, I feel we need a good start at home, not another away day disaster that sees us trying to pick up the pieces at Highbury.

    Anyway, if they beat us, well our last CL match at Highbury will be against Real Madrid and that's kinda cool, I think.

    Ronaldo has scored 1 goal since 10/15.. he hasnt exactly been in sparkling form... but he is still dangerous...

    and i think you are all forgetting the fact that Ballack will be most likely signing for Real in January.. although, now that I think about it, he is cup tied, so it doesnt matter.. hehe

    Robinho hasnt been playing all that well, but he did score a nice goal last weekend.. and Baptista hasnt done much of anything... in fact, he was on their "second team" for a while...

    RtC, i think that if we can keep it close in Spain, we have a shot.. even last year, where we got spanked at Bayern, we had a shot at home.. we just couldnt pull it off...

    i think this is going to be a shootout... i can see 4-5 goals in each match being scored....

    I think it will be very difficult to keep it close in Spain. I really do.

    Is it an advantage to play away in the first leg? I would prefer to play at home first so you 'should' have the advantage going into the second leg.

    I think we will beat them. Thierry will be well up for it to show Spain how good he is. Pires, Lauren and Senderos all turned down Real to join us so will be looking to put on a show.

    But most of all Fabregas and Reyes I am excited about already. The last time Reyes played Real we all know what happened and you can just see the 18 year old exBarca youth player dominating the Galacticos.

    It will take a huge performance from the whole team but I think we will win 3-2 overall then be knocked out by Rangers in the next round :oops:
