    So we got the most difficult draw from the teams that finished first? Hm, seems about right.
    Think you'll find that Arsenal did..

    AC Milan hold a 7 point lead over Napoli in Serie A after 14 league games.

    Hardly UEFA's fault. Difficult draw but Napoli have little pedigree at this stage. We should progress.

    Of course it's down to luck, but even the Manchester clubs (lol) and Stoke have gotten difficult draws as well in the Europa league.

    Just made me wonder...

    Mm, well, I guess some years it happens that way. Last year we got Copenhagen; Man U drew Marseilles...it's an unfortunate coincidence, but...

    Not heard much on Napoli apart from their striker Cavani, if we manage to keep him quiet then we should be able to progress.. That being said, I would of have rather been drawn against Zenit than Napoli.

    We've certainly got our work cut out for ourselves. But, if we're going to win we're going to have to beat the best. Plus, it makes victory so much sweeter if we beat a very good team.

    It's a bit sad that I wouldn't actually be surprised were the draws to have been rigged against the English teams. I highly doubt that's the case though.

    Also, I think you lot are building up Napoli a bit too much. It's not as though they have a wealth of European experience, and they're not exactly setting Serie A alight at the moment.

    It is weirdly suspicious that every English team got what would be considered a togh draw in their respective competitions.

    In the Europa League, there were tougher draws than Ajax/Porto though. You can only really say that Chelsea/Arsenal got the toughest draws, and even then you can only be drawn against 7 other teams so its quite likely that you're going to get a tough team.

    Aye. And taking the conspiracy theory further... the French teams got very favorable draws. :holmes:

    He didn't, if I'm informed correctly. I think it's just newspapers and other media outlets blowing out of proportion his frustration at being taken off against Newcastle. The same thing has been happening with Torres.

    He's said on multiple occasions that he wants to finish his career here. If he wasn't such a committed professional then I'd harbour more doubt about his position, but I don't see him as the type to change his mind on that statement on the basis of having to fight for his place.
