They were the suprise package last season, but they have lost two of thier best players in Franck Kessie and Andrea Conti to AC Milan this summer.

They replaced Kessie with Marten de Roon from Middlesbourough which might give you an idea of their standard.

Christ yeah they did really well, still think they'll be a challenge though.

Would have preferred to have fixtures where we could rest some of the starters as it may tell later on in the season but nevermind, it's a good challenge
Ahh.....Boucheenie i presume

Depay is at Lyon isnt he?

Yeah, Lyon have some decent players as you'd expect. But if you take a look at their squad there isn't anything in there to really fear now Lacazette has gone. It will still be tough, but I think we have the best squad of the four teams in our group.

Lyon have some unpredictable players so will be dangerous in cup games like this.

Strangely I actually have both a Lyon shirt and an Atalanta shirt, they could be both getting burned if we get done over by them!
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

Top 2 go through to knockouts, we should be one of them

Should be going through though. Would still put us as likely favourites to win the group but will be close with Lyon.

Not too many players I recognise in that Atalanta squad, De Roon and Cornelius are 2 ex prem players I recognise

Lyon have got a pretty good squad by the looks of things. Hopefully Koeman knows how to stop his fellow countryman Depay. We also get to see what we could have had in Ferland Mendy who we were linked with if I remember correctly

I still expect 3 wins at Goodison, that along with 1 away win and 2 draws would be enough to see us through I assume. Would be nice to go through as group winners

Dates are automatic but not sure of the ordering.

First group games will be played on the 14th of September. :)

I am pretty sure that is the same rationale that made me a Denver Broncos fan at age 2.  My parents attest that I picked them at said age, and gave no reason for it.  Stuck for life, though.
