Oi, got rid of them.

Would like Fener, Levante, and Rapid Vienna. Few difficult games and a chance to see a young American in Boyd play against good opposition, see what he's about.

I hope AIK draws a couple of top teams so I can make the trip to a game or two. Hopefully(?) at the new arena.

Don't want Napoli because of what happened last time but don't care about the other two. I like hard matches. We'd go out in that first group too, I just know it.

I think Anzhi would be a team to worry about because of Boussoufa and Eto'o. They've got a strong squad elsewhere as well and could challenge.

Send a message via ICQ to Savi
Brugge - Newcastle, Bordeaux, Maritimo
Genk - Sporting Club, Basel, Videoton

Tough draw but I think both Brugge and Genk could challenge for 2nd in their group.

Love this group for Newcastle. Travel won't be too bad and I think they have a very good chance of getting to the knockout rounds.

Gotta say that Liverpool and Spurs both handed tough groups. Inter has some long trips in their weekday quests.

It obviously depends on which players Pardew will play in these games. The first team would walk through the group but it seems more likely that reserves will play a lot so it might not be so easy.

If other Newcastle fans are happy, I will be happy. The travel doesnt seem to be all that bad which can only be a good thing.

I'm looking forward to all those games for Liverpool. A group that would have been supposedly easy, would have turned out to be much more difficult in reality.

Monchengladbach got a pretty tough group, but they were lower seeds

the only big team who can complain about travel is Inter Milan really

A,C,F,J,L look the most interesting to me while teams like Atletico Madrid, Stuttgart, Sporting got a kind draw

It's certainly not the easiest draw, but as you said, they were a low seed, and it's a manageable draw. All 3 will be tough teams, but Gladbach is the most talented team in the group and should advance.

I know we have at least one non-Liverpool fan following Yesil so I'll drop this in here...

Quote:
The 18-year-old, signed from Bayer Leverkusen for Ł1m in the final week of the transfer window, will be promoted to the first-team squad in Berne as Rodgers attempts to eke out his slender resources ahead of the Premier League meeting with Manchester United on Sunday.

Yesil made his first appearance for Liverpool on Saturday in the Under-21s' 4-1 win over Chelsea and could be joined by Suso, an 18-year-old Spanish forward, in what is likely to be a youthful Liverpool side for the opening game in Group A.

The Liverpool manager confirmed: "Samed will certainly be fast-tracked. He will be involved in the Europa League game. I watched him play [for Germany] against England Under-19s the other week when he scored two terrific goals and set up another."

Now all he needs to do is forgetting he's wearing the liverpool shirt and start scoring goals left and right again.
