You messing? Milan is a fucking dump of a city. Rotten, miserable, working city.
The surrounding area is astonishing, i spent a few weeks touring around it and the lakes. But Milan city itself is balls.

There are some tough teams in the 1st pot as expected but pot 3 & 4 have little to be worried about. Looking forward to the draw.
This is my feeling. Couple of pot 1 teams i wouldn't fancy. But two go through and we'd have to be proper unlucky to find 3 teams that we'd struggle to get 3 or 4 points off in that draw.

You could have some seriously tough away days in the same group. Zenit, Partizan and Istanbul would be horrendous.

I would love to see us get AC Milan, and then a couple of nothing teams in the 3rd/4th seed to get through.

How do you go about getting tickets for an away match if you're not a STH?

I'd love to go - we always say about dusting off the passport but I never know how to get a ticket!

main thing we don't want is long distance travelling...........Possibly better to have a high profile team from Pot 1 , to get us used to facing someone better in the latter rounds, Nothing worse than facing 3 easy teams then getting paired with a CL drop out in the knockout stage.      Only advantage of playing easy teams on paper is letting the full squad get some rest / game time between the League games.

Nuts how there's 5 English teams in the Champions League and only two in Europa.

The rules only allow 7 in total from any one association, so what should have been our 2nd group stage slot went to Fastav Zlín for winning the Czech Cup. Since Arsenal had already obtained that through their league position, I never quite understood why we didn't get that group slot and it be our league's qualifying 3rd round slot that was given to another league..

On the other hand our extra time to gel and get some sharpness may work to our benefit..

How do the drop outs work? If CL teams get ko'd the next round do they go into EL ko rounds?
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Still angers me that, its ridiculous, teams should only have one chance in Europe.
