    Touche.
    Good point on winning your groups. We at arsenal have been our own worst enemies fielding weakened teams.

    United can't draw City. Same country teams.

    No point discussing draws which can't happen

    Don't understand how they choose the groups people go in... Like Man City were automatically put in a group when there were 2 others open, without english clubs in them.

    Tough one for Chelsea I think, Genk and Valencia are tough teams, Ballack coming bak to the Bridge with Bayer Leverkusen and Mata going back to Valencia.
    Man U, lucky draw for them, you can see them winning all their games easily, except perhaps against Benfica.
    Arsenal tough group there as well.
    Man City so-so group, can see them going through tho.

    A tricky draw for the arsenal.
    the nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry & depression

    Lucky draw for Man U and RM
    Group A and F are the interesting ones though.

    The hardest group is definately Group A, There's no way Napoli, Villarreal are walkovers I think it's going to be a 4 way battle there

    Group A = group of death
    group G = Mickey Mouse Group

    Randhir, Shakhtar Donetsk did top their group consisting of Arsenal, Braga and Partizan and then reached the QF with a 6-2 win over Roma I wouldn't write them off.

    Also you picked CSK over Lille? They no walkovers either

    United's got a very easy group.

    Milan & Barca easy, but who will be top. If Milan go top would it not be better to end second in your group as well.

    Like Arsenals group. Will be some good matches. And relatively easy travels.
