The CL groupstage draw is tomorrow and here are the teams:

Pot One:

Chelsea
Liverpool
Barcelona
Arsenal
Manchester United
Lyon
Real Madrid

Pot Two:

Bayern Munchen
PSV
Villarreal
Roma
Porto
Werder Bremen
Sporting Lisbon
Juventus

Pot Three:

Marseille
Zenit St. Petersburg
Steaua Bucuresti
Panathinaikos
Bordeaux
Celtic
Basel
Fenerbahce

Pot Four:

Shakhtar Donetsk
Fiorentina
Atletico Madrid
Dinamo Kiev
CFR Cluj
Aalborg
Anorthosis Famagusta
BATE Borisov

-------

Best group: United, PSV, Basel and BATE Borisov.

Worst group: United, Juventus, Fenerbahce and Atletico Madrid.

Will we be the first team to retain the European Cup since the rebranding in 1992? Ajax came very close to doing it when they were winners in 1995 and then lost the final in 1996. It would be a truly magnificent feat, but one a man like Sir Alex Ferguson is truly worthy of. Fair to say there will be definitely be less pressure on us in this competition now after our triumph last season.

Draw is at 5pm tomorrow, BST of course.

Normally I'd want some top aways, some good tests for us and as little travel as possible so in an ideal world:Bayern, Celtic and Fiorentina....


... but after each CL game we're away from home and there's some bloody tough games in there: Chelsea, Blackburn, Everton, Arsenal, Citeh and Spurs as well as the WC Championships straight after (what's the dates for that?) so I want as easy a draw as possible with as little travel as possible. Ideally PSV, Basel/Bordeaux, Aalborg



But my prediction is Roma, Celtic and Shakhtar. Hopefuully I'm wrong.

I want Juve, Atletico and Fenerbahce. I want to see some classics like in 99 and not be bored dring the group stages. We are good enough to go through no matter who we get.

Cech GK of the year

Terry defender of the year

Lampard midfielder of the year.

:howler:

Let them take these little consolation prizes, we're the Champions of Europe. :D

Villarreal is not a great draw, they're a good team and let's be honest. it's a bit of a boring one thinking of the teams we coulda got.

Oh well, at least Rossi is coming home. :D
