    I saw earlier that the draws for the first round were out.

    Some good matchups, but truth be told I think that Barcelona willl win the whole thing again. If not them, then I can hope in vain for Liverpool

    Here are the groups. Group of death looks to be Group F with a nice little sub-plot of Ibrahimovic vs. Etoo.

    My guesses:

    Group A

    Bayern - Juve
    Bordeaux to UEFA

    Group B

    Manure - Wolfsburg
    CSKA to UEFA

    Group C

    L'Om - Madrid
    Milan to UEFA

    Group D

    Chelsea - Porto
    At. Madrid to Uefa

    Group E
    Liverpool - Lyon
    Fiorentina to Uefa

    Group F
    Barça - Inter
    Kiev to Uefa

    Group G
    Sevilla -Stuttgart
    Rangers to Uefa

    Group H
    Arsenal - Olimpiacos
    Standart Liege to Uefa

    Don't hate.


    My guess: Milan will be the champions of Europe this time next year.

    You guys have been a disappointment over the summer. You still have no one to replace Kaka's production and you're still old. You need a season of getting your ass handed to you for Berlusconi to get his act together. And I think this year you're going to be getting just that.

    BTW you know you're playing the derby this weekend right?

    That would mean finishing in the top 2-3 of the Calcio this year...

    Ouch. You're right, of course, the summer was a disaster. And there's a huge hole where Kaka left. I always liked that Gourcuff kid, I had hoped he would one day be a suitable replacement for Kaka if he ever left. Too bad Milan let him go. I don't even know how he's doing now.

    Yeah, I know the derby is this weekend. It should be very telling to see how Milan shows up for this one.

    Unbelievable talent. He is hands down, THE best player in Ligue 1 right now (I know that's not saying much ). 3 games into the season and already scored 4 goals and 2 assists. He is on fire. Good kid, very fun to watch and only 23. Bordeaux was able to keep him so keep an eye out for him in CL games.

    If we make it to the WC, it could be his payday with a good tournament.

    I posted some of his goals from last year which were beautiful. Last year I'd say 3 of the top 5 goals scored were his work. Plus in the last games he scored countless game winning goals which brought Bordeaux the title.

    There's been a lot of talk ever since Zidane retired, of so-and-so being the next Zidane but never lived up to it (Nasri for instance). Gourcuff is the real deal.
