Arsenal Draw PSV

Arsenal will take on PSV in the first knockout stage of the Champions League.

The Gunners have an excellent record against the dutch outfit and are unbeaten against them in the Champions League, and while no game is easy, it is a tie you would expect us to qualify from.

Arsenal are away for the first game on February 20 or 21. The return leg will take place at Ashburton Grove on March 6 or 7.

In other ties, Josie Moaninho visits his old club Porto, lets hope he gets the reception he deserves.

Man Utd got the 'easiest draw with a visit to Lille, Celtic got a plum tie in their first outing in the knockout stages with AC Milan, while 5 times winners Liverpool has the tricky test of playing the current holders.

I'm happy with this draw....there were some tough potential games out there I have been to PSV twice, once when we drummed them 4-0, and the second time when Lauren & Vieira were dismissed They are OK. We should win this tie fairly comfortably

Good draw because we really should come through, but it's in keeping with our current cup tradition in that I've been there a few times already. I've got a sneaky feeling Liverpool are gonna do Barca, I think it'll be 0-0 in the Nou Camp and the scousers will nick it 1-0 at Anfield. Speaking of which I see Gerrard has slated Les Reed for not making him feel more at ease during Euro 2000- are you beginning to get my point about this guy now?

Great Draw, confident that we will go through if all our players are fit and the real Henry is back, but as all gooners know our team will put us through the emotional wringer first!!! I fancy Porto putting Chelski out, they'll be up for it, as for Liverpool, I think its an easy game for Barca, as we are destined to meet them again and give them a good spanking!!!!

The stadium's o.k (particularly because they have a great big radiator positioned above the away enclosure), but Eindhoven is a very boring town. Drove the first time (when the car got broken into), got the train second time via Brussels (where my mate got mugged). Fran, if you're interested, there's a nice little coffee shop next to the stadium just off the town centre. At least that's what my mate told me :-)

Oh and it's very easy to stay in Amsterdam for this game. At PSV, they have a train platform adjoined to the away enclosure with trains that go non stop to Amsterdam. Originally designed with the intention of getting Ajax fans out of dodge as quickly as possible, but I bet the train companies make a killing in 'curious' tourists!

Nothing is easy at this stage...NOTHING. I bet United struggles to get past Lille (though they will beat them), and I wouldn't be surprised if Celtic puts on over Milan. I'm hoping the Perse comes up with a big game, playing in his home country. Would be great to see him fire one of those 30 foot rockets into the top corner.
