Last sixteen-the luck of the draw

Okay we didn't top our ECL Group; Doom and gloom abound, but...

Top of The Premier League. Semi Final of The Carling Cup against  Championship opponents. Home draw in the FA Cup against Championship opponents. Qualified for last 16 in The Champions League. Not bad, not bad at all. But what do the football fates have in store?

The draw for the last 16 takes place 12.00CET Friday 17th December. And Arsenal have the least choice in teams they can be drawn against, with the four choices being

Real Madrid
Bayern Munich
FC Schalke 04

Other Teams have combinations of 6, 7 or 8 different clubs they can play. Arsenal just the four, three of the teams ex European Champions at that. hmm I wonder....

play your cards right?

You could look at things and say 'exciting times ahead', what with Monday's trip to Old Trafford as well. Glass half full or half empty?
I have to say (surprisingly) half full.
