Lyon, Sevilla, Valencia, Roma and Werder Bremen are the teams to avoid from Pot 2.

Not sure Lyon are so great this season. PSV Eindhoven is the one to get but seeing as we had them twice last season I'd rather not.

Maybe not but Lyon have the potential to ruffle a few of the big teams feathers!

I think all the English sides will be delighted with that on the whole and should go through. Rangers and Celtic though have it alot tougher as would be expected by being in hte lower pots, Celtic have a good chance though if they can do well against Benfica.

Agree about Lyon.

Few players sold, and another couple out long term injured. May not be the force they were for the last couple of seasons.

I don't know why people are saying its hard for Rangers - of course its going to be - they were a pot 4 team after all. Thats means they are average. Most of the pot 4 teams got difficult draws 'for them'. You can hardly imagine any of the pot 4 managers looking at their group thinking they are going to win it or come second.

The thing about the CL draw for me is the fact that UEFA don't make an effort to make it interesting.

I mean, they keep teams from the same countries apart, but I think they should keep teams apart who have played the previous season. There are some teams to seem to get the same ones over and over. It makes it boring for the fans and TV audience.

Utd v Roma, again. Might only be interesting due to 7-1 and crowd trouble.
Madrid v Olympiakos - fed up playing them.
Chelsea v Valencia - not again.
Celtic v Milan - again.
Celtic v Benfica - again.
Celtic v Shaktar - again.

I could go on.
