    I'd personally prefer Zenit or Wolfsburg myself.

    Rather go out to Barca in the round of sixteen than be playing in Europa.

    Hopefully we get Zenit or Wolfsburg. A lot of people seem to think that Real Madrid is a nightmare option but I'd honestly much prefer them to Atletico, a team that I feel I'd a nightmare for us.

    Real Madrid is a nightmare, they have way too much pace for Per. They are the exact type of team to expose Per.

    GREAT WIN! I couldn't watch because of finals, but from I've heard Campbell, Ozil, and Giroud impressed. My opinion on Giroud doesn't change in terms of him starting, but I still LIKE the player and am happy for him.

    Campbell. I refuse to budge....I ref..well..maybe...is this what it feels like to win me over?? The jury is still out there for the next two seasons, but his form can't be denied.

    Pace can be planned for. Atleti's entire style of play would be much worse to face, they would allow us to see the ball, defend tight, organise well, press when appropriate and counter hard fast and well when we inevitably commit too many men forward. They are a well organised unit, who will push us, get physical and outsmart us. At the moment the only team in Spain who has the clear beating of them is Barca and these days games are much tighter between Barca and Atletico than they are between Barca and Real Madrid.

    I'm not saying they're an unbeatable team, just that they'd probably F us up still.

    Going forward I think we keep Walcott out wide and Giroud in the middle until we get more players back from injury. Campbell did a lot to prove he deserves the starting berth over Oxlade-Chamberlain, I hope that Chamberlain steps his game up.

    Judging by our performances in the last 16 in the last few years, we souldn't get cocky over Zenit or Wolfsburg. Wolfsburg can do use like Monaco did last season.

    We're all happy we qualified but we better make it out of the last 16 this time.

    I've observed that now we can see there are clearly 2 different line-ups that work very well for us:

    Plan A:
    Sanchez-Walcott-RW
    Cazorla-Ozil-CDM

    Plan B:
    LW-Giroud-Campbell
    Ramsey-Ozil-CDM

    In plan A, Sanchez, Ozil and Walcott connect really well, along with Cazorla playing deep and not interfering with the strikers. Whoever plays RW and CDM don't take part in the attack aside from a mere supportive role.

    In plan B, Ramsey, Ozil and Giroud connect well. They keep it simple and have a quick release. It doesn't work when Sanchez plays LW because he's a ball hog on top of Ramsey's ball hogging. Sanchez also likes to play through balls, so having Giroud doesn't work either.

    Plan C:
    Walcott-Sanchez-Chamberlain
    -Ozil-
    -Coquelin-Ramsey-

    I want to see it. The pace would be terrifying lol. Giroud comes of if we need something different, Campell on for Chamberlain is he's suck. Cazorla can come on for either Coq or Ramsey.

    plan c would be all about hard work and pace on the counter:

    Welbeck-Sanchez-Campbell/Theo
    -Ozil-
    -Cdm-Ramsey-

    Never got cocky about them or said they'd be easy. Just preferable to the other options.

    My problem with Campbell is that he hasn't proven shit against a good team.
