Tomorrow sees the draw for the group stages. We are of course in Pot 1 so avoid the better teams. Some banana skins though in the other pots ,PSG or Dortmund in Pot 2 ,Roma in Pot 4.

Liverpool Pot 3 could nicely get  Madrid,PSG and Roma, City Pot 2 Madrid, Galatassary, Roma. L'Arse are similar to ourselves (providing they get there of course)

 

Teams already in Chelsea,Manchester City, Liverpool,  Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Schalke 04, Juventus, Roma, Benfica, Sporting Lisbon, Paris Saint-Germain, Monaco, Shakhtar Donetsk, CSKA Moscow, Ajax, Galatasaray, Anderlecht, Olympiacos, Basel,Maribor, APOEL, BATE Borisov, Zenit Saint Petersburg and Porto.

I want City to get the Journeys- Zenit, Bate etc.

Liverpool to get a group of death- Madrid, PSG, Roma. Also I think Liverpool could knock one of those teams out

Arsenal I don't care about. They're not going to win the league or the champions league. It doesn't matter.

I want us to get a straight forward draw. We've been in Europe consistently for over 10 years so need for anything too exciting. Leverkusen, Salzbourg, Maribor will do nicely.

How the hell are Arsenal still qualifying for pot 1? their european record is pretty dire since 2006...

Anyway, i wouldnt bet against a reunion with ol' fat boy, and we normally get a German side, so Im predicting we will draw Napoli, Schalke and Steaua Bucharest

3rd pot is very strong indeed. Lots of tough teams in pot 2 team with there either being top teams, journeys or Basel. Obviously Roma would be the team to avoid in Pot 4.

Ideal group:

Schalke

Ajax

Malmo

Nightmare group:

Shakhtar

Zenit

BATE

You don't want three trips to Eastern Europe.

We can't English teams can't draw each other until the quarter finals

 

Personally i think they should scrap that rule. Clubs from the same country only being able to face each other so late in the competition is just stupid. It wasn't so long ago that we had Liverpool in our group, it was in the 2005/06 season.

I prefer it, I hate when two clubs from the same country play each other, never feels like a legitimate Champions League game to me.
