    Teams left in it we could play:
    Chelsea
    Napoli
    Benfica
    Eintracht Frankfurt
    Slavia Prague
    Valencia
    Villareal

    Who do you want? I'd be happy if we avoided Chelsea and Napoli. If Slavia Prague or Dinamo Zagreb get through their ties this evening they'd probably be the easiest teams to play.

    They will also do the semi-final draw at the same time, after having drawn quarter finals 1-4 they will then map out the semi-final draws ie 'Quarter Final 1 winner vs Quarter Final 3 winner' and 'Quarter Final 4 winner vs Quarter Final 2 winner'. Essentially, the draw will decide which 3 teams are between us and the final.

    I put 3 choices in the poll to choose the 3 teams you'd want in our path to the final.
    I want to avoid Napoli and Chelsea most of all and probably the Spanish teams as well; I'd choose Slavia Prague along with Benfica and Eintracht Frankfurt on our side of the draw.

    EDIT: I ****ed up the poll sorry thought you could edit as the results came in, would appreciate if someone could change the double options to the winners.

    Hoping for Villarreal or Valencia, it'd be cool to face Cazorla or Gabriel and Coquelin .

    Villareal for me - one of the weakest teams left. I'm happy to take all the **** teams all the way to the final

    Mostly a bit afraid of getting Frankfurt. They are my darkhorse and I am happy to avoid them for as long as possible

    All the more reason to get back into the CL and avoid these fixture pile-ups

    I'm hoping we will be more pragmatic from now on, given that there are decent teams we can face. I think players will be more aware of the teams quality that are left and we will understand more how we are going to keep possession and control of the game!

    Bring it on!

    Spot on - being dumped out of the CL in the last 16 always saved us from fixture pile-ups ;)

    Villareal obviously.

    They're the weakest team and we can serenade a proper goodbye to Santi.

    Just avoid Chelsea and Napoli for now and we’re good. Rest are easy to beat over 2 legs.

    Slightly hoping for Frankfurt just because I live an hour and a half away from their ground, but they'll definitely be a challenge

    please let it be Slavia, that is the only road game I can make to!

    He has to start giving Suarez more minutes, with him Guendouzi Ramsey Xhaka and Torreira we can rotate midfield without even using Elneny. Auba & Laca can rotate, defence we can also handle. Tough run though!

    Slavia, Villarreal, Valencia or Benfica. Any of those and I'm happy. Frankfurt have a dangerous front three

    Didn’t expect Slavia Prague to turn that one round. So I’ll take them instead of Villareal (save them for the semis)
