    Even by UEFA's own abysmal standards, this is painful.

    On paper Spurs the hardest, City the easiest.

    Last year was a bit of a damp squib for Liverpool in terms of the group stage opponents, least this time we’ll have some ‘proper’ games.

    Had a feeling we'd be due a match with PSG but really looking forward to that.
    Spurs in group of death but they'll qualify no problem.
    Pessimistic for Man Utd with Mourinho.
    Bayern & Man City to continue laughing for days.

    How come Man City always get the easy draws. ;)

    Great group for Spurs, was sure we'd get Real Madrid again.

    Yeah United will struggle to qualify. Some good games to watch though overall.

    Ooft, that is a tough group for Spurs. Inter have started slowly in Serie A, but they have bought really well this summer and I think they might be Juve’s main challengers.

    Tricky.

    Here is a nice little video, all the goals from CL finals. No daft music, just the goals.

    Fill yer boots before UEFA take it down!

    Taken from the SFM site.



    Celtic's Europa League group contains 3 "Champions" of their respective countries.

    Only 2 of the 8 groups in the CL can say the same.

    Champions League my erchie!

    As much as it would be very entertaining watching a top club putting 12 or so past the likes of Celtic, it's not really in keeping with the prestige of the competition.

    It'll be more fun watching Manu melt down when Juve come to town and spank you.

    Can anyone confirm that ITV has lost both this Season's Champions' League and Europa League highlights please?

    I think the Champions' League has gone to cable/satellite, but I can't find any mention of the Europa League.

    I only have Freeview SD/HD.

    Thanks.

    Everyone criticised Sky for years, well now they have the fair competition people always wanted. We can now enjoy the games on BT Sport, Amazon, Eleven Sport rather than having it all under one place.

    I've not paid for my football since the EU broke Sky's 'monopoly'. Ironically enough.

    Both Sky and BT have been criticised for their rapaciousness and for pricing out free-to-air providers.

    UEFA haven't helped here by going for cash above all else, same as the ECB.

    It's only a question of time before the BBC lose Premier League highlights and then everything will be based on ability to pay. I happen to think that this is a bad thing, but it seems I am in a minority here.
