    Pleased with that. Main thing which I wanted from the CL this season is to get through the group - after that the draw for the last 16 can massively differ the possibility of how far its easy to get so main thing is just being in the mix and seeing what happens. We should aim for last 16 CL every year - not an unreasonable target

    If there are 2 clubs from the same nation, one of them has to go to group A, B, C or D and the other into group E, F, G or H.

    Club Bruges had already been drawn into group A, so Genk could not go to group B, C or D.

    That would be ok, but I've been hoping that Roman cans him before x-mas.

    Satisfied with the draw. It has been a long time since we met Bayern Munich, Olympiacos and Red Star Belgrade in Europe. The last time we met Bayern, we went on to win the UEFA Cup in 1984 while met Olympiacos and Red Star Belgrade when we reached the UEFA Cup semi final in 1973. So, maybe these teams will bring us lucky charm again.

    But we have to treat all 3 teams with respect. Bayern are one of the traditional powers of Europe as they have reached at least the CL semi finals in 7 of the last 10 years. But we have a score to settle with Bayern for denying us the CL place by losing to Chelsea in the CL final in 2012. we can get inspiration from by the fact we beat Bayern to win the Audi Cup at their home in pre-season. Olympiacos have lot of CL experience as they will be playing in the CL group stages for the 19th time. Red Star Belgrade used to be very strong in the 1990s as they won the 1991 European Cup but have gone down in recent years. But they did beat Liverpool at home in the CL last year. Let's hope we will play to our best potential and progress to the next stages.

    Let's hope you're wrong and they struggle..

    Ajax will still have the core of last seasons team and will be up for proving they're a decent outfit, despite the departure of a couple of their star players ...

    Valencia, we just don't know but as you say they were pretty feeble losing the EL semi-final to Arsenal.. Although it can be said that a two-legged game can sometimes just run away from you..

    Lille is from a League that is decent, high in technique so I'm thinking they can score goals against this Chelsea defence... Well I'm hoping..

    That would be good if it all goes tits up for them ...However, I've got a sneaking suspicion that the transfer ban will work in their favor, a few of their english players will shine and he will do well for them..

    It's to prevent too many teams from the same country/city playing on the same day. Same as us and Arse are never at home on the same day.

    Does it bother anyone that all the teams in our group have red as their main color? :D

    Because group A-D and E-H play on separate days, but switch days every other round.

    That also means we'll play Saturday in the PL, which is a kind of a good thing.
    The bad thing is that Bayern will 400% get their game before we play them, moved to friday.
    No such service from the PL bastards.
