What are peoples thoughts after the draw today?

A couple of really strong groups but some utter dross in there as well.

Group A: Benfica, Manchester United, Basel, CSKA Moscow
Group B: Bayern Munich, Paris St-Germain, Anderlecht, Celtic
Group C: Chelsea, Atlético Madrid, Roma, Qarabag
Group D: Juventus, Barcelona, Olympiakos, Sporting Clube de Portugal
Group E: Spartak Moscow, Sevilla, Liverpool, Maribor
Group F: Shakhtar Donetsk, Manchester City, Napoli, Feyenoord
Group G: Monaco, Porto, Besiktas, Leipzig
Group H: Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Tottenham, Apoel Nicosia

At least Celtic get a chance to have stirring night before they **** off back into obscurity for another 12 months.

Which English team do we think will go the furthest?

Man Utd has the best group but I have faith in Chelsea (Im a fan). Group H, B and C look saucy though!

Chelsea will go the furthest, like we always do. Rest of the English sides are pretty **** in the CL these days.

Decent chance that Chelsea don't even get through the group

Group H will be great if Spurs decide to play in Europe this year

Would have liked Celtic in with one of the PL clubs but otherwise that's a pretty tasty draw.

No, you don't, in say the last decade, that would be Man U.

And any suggestion that the draw was in any way rigged will be met with s furious denial from UEFA.

Just a note, in 99 we had Barca and Bayern, and still won the CL. So throw any of them at us, we'll take them all on!

In a literal sense; Chelsea. Baku is nearly 3000 miles away, while Moscow and Donetsk are 'only' 2000 or so.

Chelsea won the same amount of finals as United the past decade and im pretty sure Chelsea have been to more semi finals too.

Also we lost twice to arguably the greatest club side ever, no commiserations there.

Yeah probably true. If Tevez+Ronaldo had stayed and you actually bought midfielders United would have been as good as Barcelona.

Fergie was just very stubborn, which kinda messed you up in europe.
