yep in terms of the neutral its a good draw, what i consider the best 3 teams in the CL - bayern, madrid and barca have been kept apart too so the next round should be exciting

there is of course the automatic response that the manc clubs have made the europa instantly more exciting but IMO thats utter BS, utd vs plzen wouldnt have "made the competition" its purely a good draw

man utd could still play in champions league :(

FIFA and president Sepp Blatter have opened up the outside possibility of Manchester United being reinstated in the Champions League knockout stages writes KEIR RADNEDGE.

United apparently lost hope and were ‘relegated’ into the Europa League – in which they face Ajax Amsterdam in the second round in the spring – after losing their last group match 2-1 to FC Basel in Switzerland 10 days ago.

Basel thus finshed as runners-up in Group C behind Benfica and, yesterday, were drawn against Bayern Munich in the second round in February and March.

However, in the early hours of this morning FIFA announced that it would suspend Switzerland from all international football – which would, logically, include the European club competitions – unless it brought the rebellious FC Sion club to heel.

Sion president Christian Constantin has been fighting through the sports and civil courts against FIFA, UEFA and the Swiss football authorities over the fall-out from a transfer ban wrangle with the world federation.

On Thursday the Court of Arbitration for Sport rejected Sion’s plea that UEFA should reinstate the club in the Europa League from which it was expelled last August. Sion’s legal advisers have indicated the club’s intention of carrying on with an appeal to the Swiss federal court which need not be registered until later next month.

A FIFA statement, after today’s executive committee meeting Tokyo, said: “Following the latest developments in the FC Sion/Olympique des Alpes SA (OLA) case, and in particular the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport of 15 December 2011, the Executive decided to give a final deadline of 13 January 2012 to the Swiss FA to enforce the registration ban imposed on OLA by the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber and confirmed by the Swiss Federal Court and to sanction the attitude of the club repeatedly trying to circumvent this decision in a legally abusive manner.

“As a consequence, all matches in which the relevant players participated shall be declared forfeit or three points shall be deducted respectively. Should this deadline not be respected, the Swiss FA will be automatically suspended from 14 January 2012 onwards.”

Given the warlike and nothing-more-to-lose stance of Constantin, it seems likely only that FIFA’s threat will harden attitudes in Sion.

This would then trigger a domino effect of Switzerland’s suspension from all international football, Basel being barred from the Champions League and, logically it would appear, United’s reinstatement in the Champions League.

Comments are awaited from FIFA and UEFA.

Walcott vs Antonini/Taiwo/Zambrotta is my only concern.

You'd think he would go with Taiwo, he's no slouch, also, Silva is quick as is Abate. The only slowpoke in Milans defence is Nesta/Bonera whoever plays.

Saying that though, Mexes is playing ok and he's not slow.

Yea he's been pushed up to Midfield. He seems a utility player though and only plays when there is injuries, which Milan have had alot of this season.

You also can't play Seedorf or Ambrosini every game because of age/injuries. Aquilani is getting a few games though considering his proness to injury. Boateng has been injured a few times this season too.
