FENERBAHCE !!!! :eek:

No way.....

Avoid Turkey at all costs.....

Number 1 - This is a 4 hour flight both ways.....too physically demanding.

Number 2 - Those Turkish fans sing so loudly and for sooooo long it is like a
torture from a mental view point !!!

At the Ali Sami Yen Stadium they always say "Welcome To Hell" and yes this is true !!!
(Yes I know this is Galatasaray Stadium)

Maybe the team is beatable but the journey and the stress is too much......

I'm with UnitedRed and a nice little trip up the road to Scotland to whoop Celtic looks favourite........

And.....

More importantly.....

It will put a big smile on the face of Solsk if we beat them ;)

4 hour flight? Every away game my home team take is a minimum 4 hour flight lol .:p

Celtic would be a decent challenge, but i'd rather easily smash Olympiakos :D

Yes but this is once every 2 weeks.....and I doubt they have to face teams
anywhere near as good as United do.....

If we have 800 mile round trips midweek - and Prem games the weekend either
side of this too - it's too much - as we try to retain the title....

We already have this pointless match in Saudi Arabia and if we aren't careful the
whole season is going to go wrong with all this travelling etc etc....:eek:

Don't know why we're comparing oppositions here.

But I agree, the flight won't help.

olympiakos seems to be the weakest team but id take any one of them. Lyon without doubt are an exciting team and that would be a great game

Olympiakos

Celtic - Parkhead is hard to win at

Lyon - Well they are Lyon and they can beat any team in this competiton, Good win in Ibrox last night.

Fenerbahce - Have a good team, R.Carlos and managed by Zico, They have done well. Won all there home games

Schalke 04 - Dont bother me at all

Olympiakos - Only won one of their homes this season in CL.

Schalke 04 and Olympiakos would be the teams i would like to meet, Either one

Celtic or Lyon would be tough but the other 3 really shouldn't cause a problem.

I'll go for Schalke - I always like beating the Germans ;)

Each of these 5 teams would pose some problems but on a whole we should be delighted that these are the 5 we got. If you look at the teams we missed like Barca, Madrid, Inter and Milan we should be very pleased. Dont mind who we get. We will take anyone on with our squad.

I don't care..........

We should be capable of disposing of any of those teams over two legs and if that is not the case we might aswell leave the competition right now.........

Hopefully we meet a tough team and send out a warning, although I wouldn't call any of them teams neccessarily tough.....
