    Hannover 96. There's a number in the name, what's not to like?
    Or something.

    Hannover 96 - Too many Italians in Juventus squad, not a fan of French man Trezeguet either. The only saving grace is Pavel Nevded, he's pretty gun.

    Hannover was also established well before Juve 1896 vs 1897.

    Exeter hold a surprisingly narrow 11-8 advanatge as we approach half-time in the other tie.

    Next up:

    13. Juventus v 14. Hannover 96

    The old lady of Italian football faces the Mitchell-endorsed Germans.
    Voting Cardiff in that battle.

    Juventus in the second one.

    11-1 to Hannover, so that's a wrap, people. Would've gone the same way myself.

    The Grecians now hold a 14-9 advantage, but the tie looks like going the distance.

    Next up:

    15. WBA v 16. Aston Villa

    Aston Villa.

    One of my favourite EPL clubs.

    They play a terrific brand of football - Really enjoy watching the likes of Agbonlahor and Young.

    Really hope they finish the year in the top 4.

    Afraid you'll need to express a preference on Cardiff/Exeter as well for that to count.

    WBA

    Villa are the whiniest set of supporters you could ever meet, in my experience. Non-stop moaning I got from two stood next to me when Villa played City, "Houghton's slow", "Staunton doesn't cross the ball enough", FFS you should be watching Mark Gavin and Ronnie Robinson every week you moaning *****. 90 minutes of that, plus half-time. They beat us too, Bosnich saved really well from Storer at 0-0. Glad he turned into a drug-addled ****-up TBH. On phone-ins they are terriblly whingey. O'Neill's brand of football is neanderthal and dull, as well IMHO. Seen it all before..

    Umm, yeah reasons to like WBA, err I think it was one of their players who said "You've seen one wall, you've seen them all", when declining to go to see the Great wall on a tour of China.

    Oh and Laurie Cunningham could play a bit.
