Surely Chelsea won't be drawn with Barcelona, will they?
What time is the draw at?
I'm not telling you!
I'll tell you....1700hrs
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
Group 2 Seeds
Group 3 Seeds
Group 4 Seeds
Barcelona, Benfica & Galatasary would be quite entertaining
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!
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...
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!!
Mate...you're distressing me...Are you sure?
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
My group of death:
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:
Lille (Celtic are Conference level though).
Steaua Bucharest or AEK Athens
My hunch prediction
Chelski get Barca
Man Utd get Celtic
& Jose gets grumpy
this is such a long drawn out process . .. surley just 8 hats .. 2 men ... and we could have it over in 10minutes ... too much pomp ! I hope they screw it up
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.
It's a bit Eurovision innit.
Utd, Celtic, Benfica
Chelski, Barca, Weder Brem.
Ouch!.......Where did that mouthful come from!
we get Benfica again.. lets hope we do a bit better than last season
Chelski to finish 2nd and get big team in round 2
That's typical coming from your mob.... get an easy ride & jammily win it!
No, we'll do it the hard way......
The £10 bet I had at work this week is looking better and better . Chelsea to win nowt
