Providing Robben returns to last season's form he would be a sexy Chelsea player.

Darn, we've got Real! I hope that Real don't get their act together before they face us. Still, could be worse, we could have been facing Barca!
Forget about Real getting their act together, if Arsenal get their act together they can beat Real regardless. Real are not the team of 5 years ago, and certainly some of the form Arsenal have produced over the last few years, like their undefeated run, they play the better football.

AC vs Bayern is another big one. AC got the better of them before but I wouldnt put anything past Bayern.

I think Barcelona are scared of Chelsea... Barca have improved though but i dont think either of them is stronger. Impossible to call. The first game being played at Stamford Bridge is a disadvantage imo and may make the difference.

And Liverpool, will they lose to Benfica? Hell no. Benfica are a UEFA cup team and I dont know how United lost to such a poor side. BTW anyone watch the World Club Championship match? Final on Sunday.

Nop, it's only very new in this format. The mancs were the first in it, I believe, but they got pissed over as well as opting out of the FA Cup. Divinely inspired, whoever came up with that.

Sao Paulo may be tough. Brazillian teams are a bit awkward especially when they're given a bit of time on the ball. United pretty much got outplayed when they played Vasco Da Gama I think. Good think its pretty cold in Japan though.

Yeh, they're not going to be taken lightly by anyone - especially Rafa, who's probably immersed himelf into it to take mind off home. They're not all that though, from what I've seen, not what they were as such. Still they have some decent technical players and could hurt on the ball as you say, but from the Rafa school of coaching they'll be pressed and snapped at.

What surprised me was how far that Saudi team pushed them. I really wasn't expecting that.

That's because they have a ***** defense, and in terms of goalkeeping ability their goalkeeper is piss poor. They do seem to have a bit going forward, however.

You know the goal keeper is one of their top scorers! He's apparently ***** in goals but can hit a dead ball pretty well. He looked like an idiot wearing a scarf in goals.

Yup, got like 53 career goals, or something to that effect. He's just a Chilavert wannabe though!
