True, it is annoying. We see "all English finals" enough in the league cup and EPL as it is. But to be fair it's not their fault. Most teams just can't knock the English clubs out - they're too good. Look at last season. The only English team actually knocked out of the tournament by a non-English opponent was Chelsea against Barca.
Come to think of it, two season ago in the Champions League not a single English club was knocked out by a non-English opponent. Arsenal out by Liverpool, Liverpool out by Chelsea, and Chelsea out by Man United. Very telling..
