Oops, completely forgot! So AC Milan then?! Oh dear. Think that'll be tougher than Inter, as they are going well in Serie A.

Mind you, form can change a lot between now and February.

Not the draw any of us wanted, but still... a win would really put us on the map

Discussion in the office is about who Milan's normal RB is - ie: who's gonna be picking up Bale.

From a cursory search, I'd imagine they'll put Zambrotta there? Or is he more left sided (think he is, but can play either side)? Oddo? Bonera?

More concerned about their attack though, of course. Ibra, Pato, Ronaldinho, Robinho, even Inzaghi. Let's face it - there'll be goals!

think Inzaghi's out for the season.You'll be far too mobile for this ageing Milan team imo.

Oh yeah, think you're right there. He'd be a danger coming off the bench. Pato's currently injured I believe too but no idea how long for.

Up front, they're not too old - Robinho & Ibrahimovic are both under 30 still. I guess it's the midfield and at the back - Gattuso, Seedorf, Pirlo, Nesta, etc - who are all probably past their best.

Used to be quite familiar with most of the top Italian sides but Serie A has fallen down compared with La Liga so not so sure about AC's usual line up.

Probably slightly shaky keeper (Abbiati), but at least we're used to that (Gomes)!! Thiago Silva, Nesta, Zambrotta - all very decent (if a bit old in the latter two cases). Not sure who makes up the right of the back four - does Jankulovski still play?

Pirlo, Seedorf, Ambrosini, Gattuso. All good players but, as said, getting on a bit.

If we can get Dawson, Gallas or King (a combo of any 2) fit, they should be good enough to try and keep the goals against tally respectable. We should go to the San Siro confident of at least scoring. Take a score draw and then beat them at WHL.

Well we really need Daws, King or Woody fit, none of the others like to jump for crosses!

As SimonMac said in another thread, their draw might be a bad thing for us, if they get knocked out they can concentrate on the league and if we stay in it'll continue to be a distraction for Harry and if he didn't play weakend teams in the group stage he won't start now.

Boateng is also playing really well for them, playing behind the strikers.
I wouldn't be surprised to see bale man marked out of the game the same way milan did to ronaldo when he was at man u.

If Bale is man marked then it will only leave space for the likes of Modric and VdV (if fit) to move the ball around better.

I haven't seen too much of Milan recently but are they not a bit pedestrian in their tempo? I think we should be able to take them over the two legs anyway but who knows what shape we will be in by then.

As others have said, it would be great to have Ledders and Dawson back in the first team, plus whoever else harry decides on bringing in during the transfer window. Fingers crossed that VDV's fitness is back on track by Feb.

Cheers. It's good to see that his passing has not gone unnoticed.

A little before my time but aware of him and no real age to go.

RIP.
