    Happy with Uniteds group, had to look up where Otelul Galati were from though. If we don't qualify as group winners there will be something majorly wrong. Just waiting for the computer to sort the fixtures out now and see if they put a couple in on my weeks off work - that'll give me a chance to go up and see a few games then.

    I would say that only Manchester United are certainties to go through to the Knockouts out of the English teams. Chelsea should qualify too, but Arsenal and City got tough draws.

    Re: Champions League Group Stage Draw

    Barcelona & AC got off VERY easy tbh. No disrespect but it would take a disaster for either one to go out in the group stages. Porto got off quite easy too, should go through that group with ease really, Shakter will provide a test though. As for the English teams they should all make it through but Man U has it easiest of them all for sure. Them vs Benfica is something I want to see though.

    City have it though but should go through as do Chelsea & Arsenal. Arsenal V Dortmund should be a great game.

    Heard that on talksport earlier. To be honest, if I was a City fan, I'd be pretty happy with the draw, three great away games in Spain, Germany and Italy. Why bother chasing the dream of the Champions League if you want to avoid all the famous european names.

    Re: Champions League Group Stage Draw

    City's group is interesting, partly for novelty factor, partly due to the teams involved, the rest is the usual blandness that is the group stages of the Champions league. It's all pretty obvious until the last 16, this is the stage where the clubs just line their pockets before establishing the usual order

    2 of Uniteds home games (Basel and Benfica) are on weeks that I have off from work - so I may make a trip or two up for those.

    Re: Champions League Group Stage Draw

    Posting in the football thread is like opening a can of worms xD. But anyway as an Inter fan (yes i cheer for a non-british isles or big 2 Spanish side) I must say I like our draw. We have a realtively easy group. CSKA Moscow and Lille are good sides and they could keep us from getting through all 6 matches unscathed. But in the end, I believe we will win with Lille 2nd and CSKA a close 3rd. I just say I feel bad for Fenerbache. They screwed themselves but they would have been a hell of a club to play
