Sorry you’re talking nonsense. It’s a boring game with hardly any prestige that we’ll highly likely lose. You’d rather that than a glamour tie against a giant of the game that we could win? Fair fucks to you
Id rather win the fucking tie but that could just be me

Would we actually have to play Brighton in the 7th and City on the 9th?
Nope. From the New Stadium Announcement:

If Brighton win their FA Cup quarter-final match on Sunday 17th March we shall play Crystal Palace on Wednesday 3rd April and Brighton on 23rd/24th April.


If Brighton lose their FA Cup quarter-final match on Sunday 17th March we shall play Brighton on 6th/7th April (subject to Champions League scheduling) and Crystal Palace on 23rd/24th April.

So if Brighton lose the game will now be moved forward to the 6th of April, probably at 5.30 as there appears to be a free slot there.

Porto and Ajax were draws everyone wanted because they are easier draws. Not because of what they did under Mourinho or decades ago. Poch has repeatedly said that lack of experience and lack of playing the dark arts is our boogyman in these competitions. Especially against those top prestigious sides. Well, here’s a draw against a side whose boogyman is Champions League. So if we cant get through them then we have issues wayyyy beyond experience or playing the dark arts.
“Everyone” wanted a European great who would contribute to a historic night of cup football - we’d have been just as happy with Barca or Juve.

Stop arguing you literally haven’t got a clue what you’re on about.

I don't know why most is being negative with a defeatist attitude. It's CL league. We have to fight the best to win it.
We are in QF.
Let's have some balls and face the best and be positive...

I think because the draw has coincided with our awful run of form most people are fearing the worst and frankly I don't blame them.
