Do you follow the EPL? :blink:

On and off, but I've been following it moreso than ever in the past few weeks.

How do you watch it? normal channel or live stream?

I can't pay for Abu Dhabi sports HD anymore :p

2 delayed games on One HD (always Liverpool and Arsenal though), as well as via radio with a proxy (BBC 5 Live, talkSPORT, Absolute Radio Extra) and also the BBC World Service (2nd Half Coverage of 2 games a week).

I'm also very, very odd in that I actually prefer to listen to radio coverage than watch TV coverage (of football). :lol:

Champions League Knock-out Stage

Roma vs Shakhtar Donetsk
Milan vs Tottenham
Valencia vs Schalke
Inter vs Bayern Munich
Lyon vs Real Madrid
Arsenal vs Barcelona
Marseille vs Manchester United
Copenhagen vs Chelsea

Inter and Bayern game should be interesting, both are having a tough league season.

Arsenal :(

Bit disappointed with Arsenal's draw - I wanted to play them at a later stage. A Tottenham-Arsenal quarter-final would be incredible. Now they're on the way out, though if they got a walloping it would make up for that loss.

On AC Milan, they've got an old and fairly slow defence. We have pace and dynamism, and should try and stop their forwards by simply not letting their forwards get hold of the ball. Robinho and Ibrahimovic are total loose cannons, capable of glorious football, stunning petulance and in Ibra's case impressive karate kicks. I fancy us, but there's so long until we play the tie there's little point making specific predictions.

Serie A isn't half of what it used to be. Look at the teams behind them - Napoli, Lazio etc.

Well it's going to be an exciting final few days - Australia will probably have a lead of between 400 - 450 for England to chase down and a lot of time to do it.

England need 391 to win, should be close, hope Johnson can repeat his first innings performance. :)
