    We had the worst group last yr with Dortmund and Napoli. It can't really get worse than that in terms of difficulty.
    Athletic came 4th in La Liga with 70 points. To put that into context. Atlético got 77 points the previous season before winning the league this year. They are no mugs. They also knocked out Napoli who got the same amount of points as you.

    Roma came 2nd in Serie A so were better than Napoli and way better than Marseille.

    PSG and Dortmund there's not too much difference. Tough team to face.

    appearence is everything all my mates would say the same

    how can going to oceana be an idea of hell thats literally just weird as **** for someone your age

    I guess being in Bristol you are spoilt. It's a city with a massive music scene, so just always go to the clubs that play good music. to dumb it down, just think of a house night in a city you might be in and maximise that by 100, it's that popular in bristol for electronic styles especially) I guess it can be seen as win win because the women who go to these nights are hot and interesting, rather than all dolled up going to a club which plays terrible music, always with a really horrible hostile atmosphere of insecure guys wanting to pick a fight. I do kickboxing so you can imagine the surprise some idiots get by trying to pick a fight from nowhere.

    Appearance is really not everything... What you are like inside is most important, appearance is important but not everything. Pride in your appearance is very important. very important to have a balance here. nothing worse than meeting a girl who is completely self involved. my current gf is a mix of both; a lot of girls i have slept with don't go anywhere because while the sex may be good initially they are boring so the sex always gets boring. ultimately it's obvious everyone has different perspectives. when i first turned 18 i went to some **** clubs, which can be fun with the right people... but seriously could not go back to it on a regular basis. It's one of those things that you generally grow out of, as you realise it's **** and the competition for girls isn't really that rewarding as the years go on


    Don't want to take it off topic so spoilering that.

    in the meantime, looking forward to the draw tomorrow.

    And lol at Rangers.

    Liverpool actually do something in the CL.

    Arsenal have not done anything of note in the CL since 2006.

    relieved about the victory today!

    worried about wenger not signing a striker though, it's essential. he said after the game we have podolski, walcott, alexis and campbell who can play up front... NO THEY CANNOT!

    Do Arsenal fans seriously think they have a hope of winning the UCL? Can any sane person envisage Arteta, Arteta, lifting the trophy?
    Meh. You could have said the same about Jose Bosingwa lifting it in 2012 and it happened.

    What's the point of Arsenal qualifying for the UCL every year? They don't have a hope of winning. They'll just muddle along until they face any sort of decent opposition and then go out.

    Competition with the best teams.
    Entertainment for fans.
    Massive financial gains for the club.
    Pulling factor for potential signings.
    Promoting our sponsors.

    To name a few.

    Your post has to be a wind up though as anyone who would genuinely have had to ask that question is a moron.

    Why do we have to get a fellow premier league club? This actually isn't fair, look at the chicken fixtures other teams got:

    Not as captain though.

    As an aside, isn't Fabregas playing the same position for Chelsea as Arteta is for Arsenal? Why didn't Wenger sign him. I'm sure it would have been nice to have someone in that position who can pass forwards.

    2009...

    Not our fault Ronaldo went on one against us, we still made the semi's though.

    Liverpool fluked their way through though...

    He wasn't captain though. No team whose captain is Arteta could dream of winning the UCL.

    Fabregas is not a holding midfielder, Arteta is.

    I don't think Arsenal have a good record when facing a pot 1 side in the knockout stages if I'm not mistaken.

    I guess so, but it is still such a bunch of bull that we landed the Saints.
    You always get drawn at home in cup games. You've had very nice recent cup fixtures tbh. Whilst your FA Cup ones had 3 difficult games they were all home games you were favourites to win. You've had quite favourable draws arguably, and Southampton home is no different. Swansea away is a lot more difficult, as is any away game.

    Was thinking this. Southampton always put a shocking side out in the cups too and get berated for it anyway.

    Any away game? I would take any of Chelsea, City, Liverpool or Spurs draws over ours.
