What are the odds eh? It's a pretty good draw as twente aren't even that good by the Dutch leagues standards (Solid but unspectacular). Lets hope McLarens record against us continues with Twente.....

Brooksy - Of course the players will have to avoid complacency, I however am not worried in the slightest about any team managed by Steve McClaren.

Could have been worse. The funny thing's that when Twente came out, I was saying to myself "Arsenal please, make it Arsenal." Don't know why I wanted them, more than those minnows lol. We've never faced them before. The travelling Gooners would be happy to go to a new place.

LD, I can't wait to hear what you have to say on the latest Blatter gem: "I have never said that Ronaldo is a slave, but I said slavery with young people. European clubs are trying to get 13, 14 and 15-year-old boys and bring them to the big clubs..."

just for the record, it is a blatant lie (on Sepp). Sometimes I wish I was a journalist.
