our group isnt to bad we should easly get through with our home record alone,

liverpools group is pretty tricky i could see them going out if they continue to play so poorly.

Chelski have pretty much got a by into the next round

Arse's group is a little trickey but they could get through

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 )
LOL Its gonna be a few tough weeks at home for you. :rolleyes: Celtic can still qualify for the knock out stages after losing twice. :D

Not too bad is it .
We have quite a good group considering... Away trips to Villareal and Celtic should be tricky..

I'm excited for the return of the Champions League. I think the Celtic matches will be a bit rough, but I'm interested in the Villarreal games. Currently, Villarreal have American Jozy Altidore on the team, and The return of Giuseppe Rossi to Old Trafford can make things interesting.

Boss relishes short trips

Sir Alex Ferguson was a happy man after Thursday's Champions League group draw, having safely avoided potential trips to far-flung destinations such as Russia, Turkey and Ukraine.

Instead he'll take his European champions on much shorter flights to Scotland, Spain and Denmark, for games against familiar opposition in Celtic and Villarreal plus the relative unknowns Aalborg BK.

As ever, regardless of the opponents, Sir Alex is still setting his sights on qualifying for the last 16 as soon as possible.

"We've had Villarreal and Celtic before, but Aalborg is a new one," Sir Alex told ManUtd.com.

"The bonus for us is there's not much travelling to do. We're satisfied with the group and we hope to get the 10 points to see us qualify.

"It's always nice to go to my home city and being drawn against Celtic adds a bit of spice to the group."

Dates for your Diary
17 September - Villarreal (H)
30 September - Aalborg (A)
21 October - Celtic (H)
5 November - Celtic (A)
25 November - Villarreal (A)
10 December - Aalborg (H)
This is actually a VERY nice draw. Arguably the toughest opponents Villareal
will come to OT first. If we get a good start in front of a big crowd, being the
defending champions, and then to Aalborg which should be fine.
Celtic at home then. We could have 9 points at this stage and be cruising.
We could even afford a slip in one of the next 2 away games or even 2 draws
and then have an easy game to end it at home. Sweet draw imo.

regarding the travel, its also a bonus. Geographically blessed for this one. lol
thnx Spelly

Group A:
  • CHELSEA
  • AS Roma
  • Bordeaux
  • Cluj
Should be a walk in the park for Chelsea really and I expect them to qualify along with Roma.


Group B:
  • Inter
  • Werder
  • Panathinaikos
  • Anorthosis

Inter will cruise through this group and Werder Bremen will be close behind them.

Group C:
  • Barcelona
  • Sporting
  • FC Basel
  • Shakhtar

Again it looks an easy group to pick, Barcelona and Sporting should qualify from this one.

Group D:
  • LIVERPOOL
  • PSV
  • Marseille
  • Atletico
This looks like the worst group to pick from. All four teams are half decent
and none of them will be a walkover for Liverpool, dare I say an early bath could be
in store for Liverpool?

Group E:

  • MAN UTD
  • Villarreal
  • CELTIC
  • Aalborg
Three good teams in this one. I expect us to qualify and Villareal or Celtic to
follow us, I'll go for Villareal.

Group F:

  • Lyon
  • Bayern
  • Steaua
  • Fiorentina
Lyon and Bayern are going through from this one I feel.
Group G:
  • ARSENAL
  • FC Porto
  • Fenerbahce
  • Dinamo
  • Kiev
Arsenal should qualify with ease from here but it'll be tight for the second spot.
Group H:
  • Real Madrid
  • Juventus
  • Zenit
  • Bat
You can't look past Juventus and Real madrid from this group.

I don't think juve will get through ahead of zenit, juve have a poor manager and they don't exactly have a great team. I think united and chelsea will maybe win all the games in there groups, i think liverpool should get through but will have hard gam,es away at atletico and marseille.
