    The toughest group to choose is C. I have no clue what Lazio and Werder Bremen will bring to the table. I'm really pushing for our boy Beasley and Rangers to make through the group stage, but they have a very tough group.

    We are struggling big time in a competition Benitez excels at. We are playing very poorly at the moment all up; hopefully when Xabi and Dagger come back, with the addition of Harry Kewell, it will give us some impetus through November and December.

    Always tough to play in Turkey or Greece.

    The first goal was absolutely ridiculous. When sh*t like that happens, you know things aren't going your way.

    Yeah, bad luck happens when you are out of form.

    We have played well in Turkey before, however. As recently as 2005...

    Anything that wipes a smug grin off an Italian player's face is cool with me

    Great win....their defence was terrible and they couldn't handle the high tempo.

    We have to win our last two games to qualify though, one of which is away.
