Fixed draw?

March 18, 2010

The odds of predicting the four Champions League quarter-finals correctly are close to 200/1.

Is it not funny how the knockout draws always pair up nice stories, such as Beckham and Manure in this years 2nd Round…

Mourinho back at the Bridge, Benzema’s Madrid playing his former club Lyon.

If we look at the 8 teams in the bowl tomorrow, stories can be conjured up.

Barcelona and Inter… Eto’o swapped for Ibrahimovic last summer, Mourinho is still the most detested man at Camp Nou.

Lyon have had some almighty clashes with Bayern over the last few season’s, they always seem to be paired at the group stages, can they finally make it to play one another in a 2 legged knockout?

Arsenal and Utd have two stories to make.

Revenge against Manure for last season’s Semi-final loss, and domestic rivalry of course… add the conspiracy of 2 English clubs being paired every season, and you would not bet against it.

I pray for it.

The second story for Arsenal centres around Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh who is very likely to sign on a free for Arsenal this summer.

His current side, Bordeaux, are managed by former Manure centre back Laurent Blanc.

Within that little triangle of Arsenal, Utd and Bordeaux, we will get a pairing.

I think the odds and the alignment of the stars are in my favour.

Not to mention the warm balls 😉
