ooh, harsh. Yeah, good luck Arsenal.

I notice that little bitey cunt played in a friendly last night. I agree that he should be allowed to train with his colleagues, but a ban for playing should included friendlies IMO.

Yeah, I agree. I thought the ban was too extreme. In not training or being allowed into a stadium. But I agree that it should include friendlies. But I was glad that the real substance of the ban was upheld.

Napoli vs Bilbao could also be interesting tonight.

I do very much like this Atletico team and at 18M Mandzukic could be a bargain. He's off the mark tonight.

I think your toffee nose is ruling your head there. What better way for Liverpool to be back in the top European competition than facing Real off the bat. I don't think they will win, but if Rodgers does his attack, attack, attack stuff it'll be a hell of a couple of games. Don't know anything about Ludogorets. Liverpool will hope they have the beating of Basel, but stepping up to the CL is often difficult so 3rd might be a result.

Arsenal and Dortmund should be interesting. Turkish football used to be where you went if no-one else wanted you. I think that is changing now. With Altintop and Sneijder Galatasary are no mugs, but I think the pace of Arsenal might be too much for them. Tricky away leg though.

Roma have a lot of recognizable characters, but I'd expect City to have the legs to beat them. Tough group, but I think City has to look at least at the SF stage of the CL now.

Chelsea will be very pleased with their group.

I'm pleased with the draw. We get the glamour tie of Real plus two other teams that on paper we should beat. Not counting my chickens though, Rodgers hasn't managed in Europe before and we've been out of the CL for a while.

Liverpool will qualify. I think they'll give Real a good game, especially at Anfield but I think Liverpool's susceptibility to leaving gaps in front of their back four will play into Real's hands.

Arsenal will go through but might struggle to win the group as Dortmund still have quality. Chelsea will walk their group and City might be able to sneak past Munich...

I fancy Spurs and Everton to come through their Europa League groups too...

Spurs has an easy draw. Everton group is very difficult but I am optimist that we will advance to the next round...
And if Liverpool manage to finish 3rd in it's group maybe we will meet them at the Europa League Cup Final.Now that will be a game that I will like to watch...
