    Surely Chelsea won't be drawn with Barcelona, will they?

    Oh alright then... I think it starts at 7.00pm. You'll be glad to hear it's been fixed so that we have to face either: Barcelona, AC milan, Real Madrid, Inter Milan or Valencia.....

    Oh that would be so so funny if they were.

    Mourinho's been moaning away AGAIN about how unfair the draw is when he's acheived little in the Champions League with Chelsea. It's a European Competition with seedings generally based on performances in Europe - that's the way it should be. If Chelsea get to another 2 Semi-finals they're probably be seeded in the top pot & rightly so.

    Group 1 Seeds

    Barcelona
    Real Madrid
    Milan
    Inter Milan
    Liverpool
    Arsenal
    Manchester United
    Valencia

    Group 2 Seeds

    Lyon
    Porto
    PSV Eindhoven
    Bayern Munich
    Chelsea
    Roma
    Lille
    Celtic

    Group 3 Seeds

    Sporting Lisbon
    Benfica
    Bordeaux
    Steaua Bucharest
    Werder Bremen
    Olympiacos
    CSKA Moscow
    AEK Athens

    Group 4 Seeds

    Anderlecht
    Dinamo Kiev
    Levski Sofia
    Shaktar Donetsk
    Galatasaray
    Hamburger SV
    Spartak Moscow
    FC Copenhagen

    Barcelona, Benfica & Galatasary would be quite entertaining

    Huh! :eek:

    What more do we have to do?

    WTF have Man Utd done in the last 5 years?

    I reckon they should change the rules slightly, to take into account that we pee on Man Utd, Liverpool and Arsenal domestically, thereby relegating those 3 to pot 4 and replacing them with Hamburger SV, Shaktar Donetsk and FC Copenhagen! :smashin:

    I also have the feeling that Chelsea will probably draw Barcelona. I just get the feeling that after their meetings the last two years that their still is unfinished business between them.

    If they do meet I would have Barca as favourites as the additions of Thuram and Zambrotta will surely improve their back four. I just hope for a couple of good games and a little less needle between them.

    Gosties: In all seriousness, you could be right!
    I would love the chance to play them again. However, I like the spiky needle this game has. It obviously went too far with the Hans Frisk episode, but the bad blood between Mourinho & Barcelona will always be there, until they apologise and stop calling him "Bobby Robsons Interpreter"

    I think you'll find that Man Utd have probably represented us in the CL for a good few years more than your good selves mate, might have something to do with it?

    Oh yeah, and they won it once too... :D

    Keep it up, 3 years of half decent Champs league performances, you need another 2.


    It's not just the last 5 years & then cut of, it's the 5 years proceding the current years so it's constantly rolling.

    Personally I think they should shut the door & only allow previous winners complete, those with the most European Cups are top seeds. Bring on Forest!!:D

    It must be or like you say, why are Utd in there? same with FIFA rankings, they never start & finish anywhere - they're constantly updated. UEFA only take the previous 5 years into consideration, not assess in 5 year blocks or everyone would be top seed every 5 years

    Porto have won it, and they're in pot 2 - You should be thankful you're not in Pot 3!!!

    When Roman gets bored of Chelsea, you'll be lucky to be seeded in the FA Trophy or whatever it's called these days :D

    My group of death:

    Liverpool
    Lyon or Bayern Munich
    Benfica or Werder Bremen
    Hamburger SV or Galatasaray

    At least we can't be drawn with Chelsea again, not that it would matter, we wiped the floor with that group anyway.

    My Group of Life:

    Liverpool
    Lille (Celtic are Conference level though).
    Steaua Bucharest or AEK Athens
    FC Copenhagen

    My hunch prediction

    Liverpool
    Lyon
    CSKA Moscow
    Galatasaray

    I must have missed some subtlety of the rules there.
    When Chelsea came out, they had to go in Group A as that was the only valid option. But Lyon (pulled out later) get put into group E with Real Madrid.
    Any reason why Chelsea couldn't go in group E?

    Admitedly, I nodded off while that boring bloke was explaining the rules. I realise they wanted to avoid 2 clubs from the same country in a group.
