We could get a real good draw from Pot 3, better than anything we've ever seen. But there is potential for a horror draw, too.

P.S - we get more money because GS didn't qualify, so there is a positive out of that. I'll come back with a figure of how much later.

P.P.S - looks like something above about €8-9m. Would've been 47.5% of that had GS qualified.

1st and 2nd pots have very good teams with different characteristics.

I wouldn't mind having Lyon, Real Madrid and if we are going to have an English team, Liverpool or Arsenal are ok to have than the others.

From the second pot Portuguese teams, PSV and Werder Bremen looks ok to have.

Some tricky ones in 4th pot.
I would love to have Anorthosis or BATE.
Atletico Madrid would be a nightmare having as the 4th pot team but would be exciting for Aragones.

So €10m it is.

Would've been €4.75m if GS won (not the €4.5m reported). The split was to be 52.5% champions share, 47.5% runner-up share. Silver lining indeed :D

Liverpool out of Pot 1 could be good. Standard Liege, a quite 'standard' team gave them all sorts of problems over the two legs, and in the end they were lucky to get through with a 118th minute goal.
