CL-Draw

This is what the draw looks like for the nordic clubs:


Shelbourne / Steaua-Rosenborg

Malmö FF / M. Haifa-Dynamo Kiev / FC Thun

Vålerenga / Haka-Club Brügge

Dinamo Tbilisi/Brøndby-Ajax


Malmö will have a hard time , and so will the sorry asses of Brøndby

As for the two clubs from Norway, the it looks like the've got a fair chance

Let's go Rosenborg, Malmö, Vålerenga and Ajax take it home :drool:

I'm hoping for all the Scandinavian teams as well, and I would hope for Haka if they didn't meet a Norwegian team. I feel a bit Romanian as well though, and Steaua vs Rosenborg would be a great encounter, I would not be sad to see Steaua finally make it to the Champions League stages, even on the expence of RBK.

I'm looking forward to attend a match between two teams I've been following for quite some time now. I'm looking forward to give my full support to Brøndby, which is the club that takes up the most room in the heart. There's still room for good ol' Ajax, but I certainly know what jersey I'll be wearing on the night.

So, I'm really hoping we'll go on and win (progress) against Dinamo Tbilisi on Wednesday.

Quite poorly. They are midtable in the league, and last weekend they lost to my favourite team, Aalesunds FK. Their pre-season purchases have been close to a fiasco so far, and their latest signings from Uruguay have yet to impress. The team has been struggling with internal quarrels, the coach is close to getting fired, and they are far behind the top teams in the league. I don't think Steaua could possibly meet Rosenborg at a better time. Rosenborg has made some changes though (some old players out, some new players in), their form could be on the way up, but only time will tell, and the Steaua matches are getting closer and closer.

What? What do you base that on? The one game against yous? Both are completely new to the league and come from another continent. Both Lago and Eguren were good today. Eguren had an assist and Lago put in a solid performance. Imo it was too early to put both in the starting line-up against Aalesund. Especially Lago because he is a defender and thus he must know the opponent's style of play well. The style of football Aalesund played is probably very different from what he is used to from Uruguay.

You clearly misunderstood me. I said: "their latest signings from Uruguay have yet to impress" which I think is neither unfair nor harsh. However, I leave it open whether or not they will be impressive in the future.

I also said: "Their pre-season purchases have been close to a fiasco so far"
You might think this is wrong as well, but the pre-season purchases are not Eguren and Lago. They are the players that were brought in at the end of last season and the beginning of this season to bring Rosenborg another league championship. They are all accomplished and talented players, but it would not take a trained eye to see that they have been struggling in Rosenborg, and that the team has not been playing well in many of the matches.

Well, anyways Steaua is not in their best form either. They haven´t reinforced the squad properly this summer and the team seems a bit weak compared to other Romanian teams.

And first they must win Shelbourne in the previous round, which it won´t be easy I think.

Missed the pre-season bit. Sorry, read through it too fast, and was too quick when I saw 'the Uruguyan players' in the same sentance.

You are only partly right. We made three pre-season signings and only one of them has failed to impress. The other two have been injured for most of the season, but they have played great when they first got to play. The "flop" so far is Ødegaard, but as he has never played in a 4-3-3 formation before in his career and doesn't even fit in to a formation like that I would like to give him more time. The unlucky injured players have been Kvarme and Kopiinen. Both have been solid when I've seen them and therefore I fail to see how you can say they are stuggling (and how they are young ). Kvarme got on against Bodø/Glimt and will omst likely figure in the next game against Fredrikstad. His come-back will be a real boost.

Much of the reason for Rosenborg's horrible spring spell has been the injuries. Berg has been out for almost all season, same with Koppiinen and Kvarme. Braaten has also been injured for more than two months and Johnsen, Riseth, Russell, Dorsin, Basma and Storflor have also had injuries lasting for a couple of weeks and some even a month.

Even players you signed before them. Braathen is a huge talent, and should be a dominating player in Tippeligaen, but he has not lived up to expectations in RBK yet. Helstad is a longtime accomplished professional that should be lighting up the Norwegian league, yet he has not been up to the level we all expect him to be at. Dorsin plays a lot, and he plays quite well, but I would also have expected even better performances from him.

With Rosenborg's amazing squad that shouldn't have had such a strong effect in my opinion. AaFK have had similar amount of injuries until this last month, and have obviously struggled with reserves not being up to the same level as the first team.

Good luck to Rosenborg though, apart from winning the championship (for Norwegian football we really need a new champion soon), I wish you all the luck.

Good luck to all nordic teams, except Haka of course (and I won`t cry if Rosenborg doesn`t make it). We will face Club Brügge if we beat Haka tomorrow. We have a decent chance at reaching the group stage. Brügge have made some changes since last season, and our coach know a lot about belgian football.

FORZA ENGA

I really would like all Danish teams to make it far. Except Brondby, of course. I feel that FCK could actually do well this time in Europe.

Agreed agreed agreed.

I hope FCM, Esbjerg and FC København will win their matches, but when it comes to Brøndby I'll give Ajax all my support.
