All these teams to choose from and we get Napoli.. just what we need on the busy schedule ffs.

On the other hand, if we manage to get them out (as long as we survive in the away game we'll be fine) it's a huge boost. Pretty much can see us in Baku on the 29th. :o

I think we are giving Napoli too much respect here. We should easily beat them

Heh. You reckon?
Have a look at the Serie A table mate.
I'm not holding up their league against ours, but when we can lose to clubs beneath us in the PL, then we should not really be viewing this tie as a gimme

The chavs got the draw we wanted, I was hoping they'd get Napoli.

After Juve, Napoli are the best of the rest in Italy......which isn't saying much mind as the rest of the league is toilet.

The one thing I will say is they should have knocked the victims out in the group stage of the CL this season, they beat them at home and missed some incredible chances including one right at the death in Anfield.

If we avoid disaster out there, we should have enough at home to take them out.

Well if you’re going down that route, they have lost four in Italy and we have lost six in a far more competitive league.

Anyway just my opinion on the fixture

Don't be a tart. :shock: :lol:
I looked up their league form/table, and it fared well.
They are second to run away leaders Juve.
Goals scored and conceded augur well. But won just 1 in the last 5 and still second in their league.
Easily beat them? We lost to Rennes 3-1. Do you really think that we can afford a -2 goal deficit to an Italian team in the second leg?

worst draw, but they just lost 3-1 to some no mark austrians.

yes they are 2nd in the league, a distant 2nd in a poor league (any league that has the milan clubs in 3/4 is poor as they are atrocious these days)

look at their squad, any names to be worreid about? not really, we should be beating them 8 times out of 10, but we probably wont.

We were down to ten men when beaten 3-1 and most likely over confident before the game. Different story here.

Koulibaly is a beast of a centre back and is probably their best player.

Shit from the perspective of easy progress through.

Will be a good tie though and another really good test for our side. First leg at home probably a good thing - we are likely to give away at least one goal but also 90% likely to turn up. Good chance for us to get a result to take over there.

we should have beaten rennes at away but we didnt. we still should have won though.

no one is saying napoli is a gimme, we are saying we should be beating them more often than not.

if both teams played to their best we would win.

but we know how jekyll and hyde we are so we will probably go out with a whimper.
