Remind who won the Champiosn League last season ... oh not Chelsea. Can't believe they have 3 awards. IMHO it should of been Cech, Ferdinand, Cesc or Scholes and Ronaldo.

I'm annoyed we got Celtic, ahrd place to go, i want a really unknown team now, we don't want hard games, we'll have enough games to cope with already especially around december time. If we avoid Kyiv, Atletico (Can'tget them anyway i don't think) and Donetsk we should be ok, i hope to hell Pool get Atletico now ;)

Aalborg are that team on Fifa i always get when i random lol. They shouldn't be too hard.

So happy with Liverpool's group, they will struggle especially if they play like they did yesterday. Don't understand why Villarreal are in group 2 ? They weren't even in it last year were they :confused:

Phil Thompson is a poor pundit, so bias and thinks Liverpool are a good team -- LOL.

Celtic. Awesome. :) Up the Hoops! Villareal fantastic. Rossi is injured but hopefully he'll be fit for the United clash.

At any rate he'll definitely be ready for the 2nd leg. Talented young striker with a point to prove and a bone to pick with Fergie. Bring it! :D

John Terry defender of the year? Nah doesn't sound right. Don't they have an award for guys who keep slipping and parking in disabled spots? :p

I wished for:
Sporting CP
Celtic
Anorthosis

What we got is similar eventhough I rank Villarreal better then Sporting and Aalborg way better then Anorthosis its not that big difference. Im pleased with what we got and pleased who we didnt got like Bordeaux, Marseille, Atletico Madrid or Fenerbahce. I dont rank the pot 2 teams as worse or better since two teams qualify for 2nd round.

Why did I want Celtic? I prefered them to the other teams just because I want a the feelings to boil and to have a pretty stiff competition and the nerve too. I wouldnt want to get the good sides of Bordeaux or Marseille where we could lose and it would be just another CL night.

Not a bad group for United. I'm looking forward to the Celtic-United fixtures, there's always a great atmosphere in the bars in Belfast.

It could have been a lot easier. celtic is always tough. We lost at theirs last time.
Villareal are pretty good as well and could cause problems.

I agree that its not an easy draw but still it could be worse. Aalborg isnt good enough and we're the better of the other three teams and its important to win the home games and the away games are not impossible to even win. But I rather take Villarreal rather then Bayern, Juventus, WB or Roma. And Celtic well, its not the easiest of clubs in pot 3 but Bordeaux or Marseille along with mad turks in Istanbul would be a worse away game.
Im aware of the mad Celtic fans in Glasgow but I personally prefer them to the others. Other choices would be to got to Romania or Greece or the poorest in pot 3 Basel would be a better draw but Celtic is a more exciting draw.

Its between us and LFC for the easiest one. Villarreal aren't as good as everyone thinks, they finished 2nd because Barca laid a complete egg.

Order of groups starting from hardest to easiest IMO, starting with the hardest,

Group D: LIVERPOOL, PSV, Marseille, Atletico
Group C: Barcelona, Sporting, FC Basel, Shakhtar
Group E: MAN UTD, Villarreal, CELTIC, Aalborg
Group F: Lyon, Bayern, Steaua, Fiorentina
Group G: ARSENAL, FC Porto, Fenerbahce, Dinamo Kiev
Group A: CHELSEA, AS Roma, Bordeaux, Cluj
Group B: Inter, Werder, Panathinaikos, Anorthosis
Group H: Real Madrid, Juventus, Zenit, Bate


As for us,

Celtic: We know what they'll be about, but they're not what they
used to be. Were extremely lucky to win the SPL last year IMO, and are liable to
very bad defensive lapses. The crowd is a huge asset to them TBF and it will be
tough in Glasgow. If you said to me now that we can come away from there with
a point, no injuries and no suspensions, I'd take it. I'd be shocked if we failed to
make home advantage count when we play at Old Trafford. We have to forget
about the tough times of seasons ago and concentrate on whats happening
now, and we are more then capable of taking them at home, and I feel the crowd
will surge them on at Celtic Park.

Verdict Home: Win
Verdict Away: Draw


Villareal: One name springs to mind, eh? A certain Mr. Forlan. El
Madrigal is not a place you want to go to needing to win for starters and they're a
very well organised side. Riquleme may be getting on in years but they could say
the same about Scholsey, but both are well able to control the tempo of games
despite the age. After seeing a few games of theirs last season, their defence is
weak and most notably the high balls and quick one touch stuff will open them
up for me. Should take them away. Tough game, but not as tough as Celtic away
in all honesty.

Verdict Home: Win
Verdict Away: Win


Aalborg: No offence to them, but they are simply unknown. For this
very matter we should be able to take all 6 points from this encounter with ease
for me. Sure, unknown teams will want to make their mark but they will crumble
at the wake of the European Champions. They'll be solid away but I can see a 5
or 6 nil thrashing on home turf.

Verdict Home: Win
Verdict Away: Win



Overall, as Jazz said, it could be easier but a lot lot tougher too so I'm happy with
the draw. Should be cracking atmospheres a both Celtic meetings so that's a tie
I'm really looking forward to.

Last year our group was a lot harder IMO, and we avoided the "big hitters" such
as Juve, bayern, Athletico so that's a plus.



ROME HERE WE COME!!!!!!

Villarreal and Beppe Rossi :)

If you doubt we will beat Celtic away I say the same about Villarreal. The submarines are better then you think. I think the opposite that we're beating Celtic in Glasgow too but might have to settle for a draw in Spain.

Aalborg is a decent team but havent got what it takes to even steal a point from any of the teams in our group.

Never mind the mad Celtic fans in Glasgow...... I've got one in my house. Its not going to be pretty. Perhaps he could move into the garden shed for a while. I can only hope the ifs buts and maybes of the possible outcomes lead to qualification for both teams (without Utd losing to the hoops of course:D )
