    Cantona should be sectioned.

    Anyone hear that nonsense he spoke picking up his award at the draw ceremony?

    Bayern and Spurs for Oly.

    Ouch.

    It only takes a second to score a goal.

    Could be worse, As I said, the crucial factor for us is the "weak" opponent from pot 4. We've got Red Star Belgrade, who have a very cunning manager but are certainly not an opponent one trembles before.

    Europa League is feasible. And I don't trust the Spurs in Europe.

The gap between the mega-rich clubs that dominate the CL and normal European clubs is huge.
    To give you an idea of the gap, if one uses the value of squads in Transfermarkt for comparison, the most expensive one (Manchester City) is worth 32,5 times more than the cheapest squad, that of Slavia Prague. Between the 19th and the 20th clubs (Benfica and Atalanta), there's a gap of 75m, which is what we're worth. We're the 29th poorest club in 32.

    This is not a fair game by any standard. There will occasionally be a Cinderella, but the big bad wolf usually wins.

    Might as well have done the draw for the next three years while they were there.

    Any idea the approximate value of Ajax last season (I’m too lazy to look myself).

    Atalanta are playing their games at the San Siro as they're ground is a crumbling heap.

    Might pop along to catch Shakhtar as them vs Martin O'neil's Celtic was the last CL game I went to.

    Trebles all round

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Champions League kicks off properly tonight. Who is excited? These next three million matches will decide what order PSG, Real Madrid, Bayern, Spurs, Man City, Atletico, Juventus, Liverpool, Barcelona and Chelsea will go into the hat for the draw for second round to be played only five months from now.

    The dream final has to be PSG v Man City. Both clubs have showed phenomenal expenditure in recent years. Given us so much transfer deadline day excitement, few argue they don't deserve it.

    I’ll watch Dortmund-Barcelona mainly because it’s on the telly and could potentially finish 5-3 to either side, but really, the „Group“ stages are a pointless bore and the competition doesn’t really get interesting until February.

    The CL is just as boring as international tournament qualifying groups, the game needs a complete shake up

    They could do a knock out competition for the winners of every UEFA country's leagues, maybe give the previous years winners a free pass.

    Good idea, they could also have a knock out competition for the top 6 teams in EUFA leagues & a knock out competition for domestic cup winners

    The group stages are boring but the knockout stages are brilliant.

    Alf-Inge's lad with a debut Champions League first half hat-trick.

    Just the 16 goals in 9 games this season.

    We could go back to the old days and be watching FK Sutjeska v Sūduva. Or watch one of the giants put 15 past some Irish part-timers in a half empty stadium.

    He's already breaking crazy records with his goal scoring. Looks like a real talent, and he's massive.
