Thank god for Fiorentina's good Uefa cup run!!! IF it wasnt for it, then you guys wouldnt have been seeded as you BARELY made it by the skins of your teeth.

The team you guys have to avoid at all costs is Athletico. If you play them it will be about 50-50% shot in my opinion although i fancy your chances to beat them it is just way too risk early on. You have 1/15 chance (atletico cant get Barca)so it is 6.7 % chance of getting them so you'd have to get VERY unlucky for it to happen. All the other teams look very beatable for Fiorentina. A trip away to Galtasaray would not be too pleasant as well, but you guys should have no problem with them at home.

No, I want Levadia Tallinn to get through to 3rd round to meet Fiorentina:pp
More than 15 minutes to walk but they are close anyway ;)

Avoid Atletico and you should be fine, although there is the usual other tricky ties of course.

I know its very far in the future, but you should start a poll of who you want :pp

Well only 2 months till the CL draw tho and it will be very important for you. Cant wait to see the viola back in the CL after all these years. :thumbsup:

I want Aalborg. I assume that they are Scandinavian and it seems like we have a lot of fans up there.

Now Spartak is un-seeded with Benfica being seeded in the qual. round and Vit. Guimaraes entering directly in the ChL.

Due to the Porto scandal, obviously.

You thank God for that UEFA Cup run with 00.497 points seperating you and the Russians:)

I believe it were the guys and Mister Prandelli who did that run :)

Wow after the Porto scandal Fiorentina made it by the skins of their teeth in the seeded teams. It was a close one, but you guys are seeded. I am very happy for that as when I found out about Porto I was worried about Fiorentina for a 2nd, because if you drew Barca, Liverpool, or Arsenal it would have been very tough. I dont think Spartak will be your main worry as Atletico still remains the worst possible draw.

There is also another change. Instead of CSKA Sofia it will be Levski Sofia in the CL.

Wow Porto and CSKA Sofia getting expelled out of Europe and CSKA can even get relegated :rolleyes:
And I tho these things only happen in Italy :pp

Fixed the table :)

Well, strange that Milan wasn't expelled out of CL in first place ;)
