Will take that, fairly decent draw for us. PSG aren't what they were with Ibra there.

We'll comfortably scrape our way to second. :wave:

:puzzled: 'comfortably scrape' seems a contradiction of terms, but I sort of understand.

Avoided the big four: Real, Barca, Bayern, and Juve. Mostly very short travel with Ludogorets in Bulgaria the outermost. Not a bad draw I would say.

The tater Totts luck out and get one of the weakest from pot 1, but overall their group seems quite even, they could finish either end or anywhere in between.

The fix of the draw was of course Barcelona and Man City in the same group. Could be some good battles to find out what order the top two will finish between Bayern and Althletico in Group D and Dortmund and Real on Group F. Group B looks really competitive throughout.

Fantastic group; nice to get three new teams, and not the same old.

Pleased for Leicester too, very achievable qualification.

It's an excellent draw, so I expect us to fuck up royally then get Bayern in the 16 anyway.

Definitely nice to see some new teams after what seems like an eternity of the same.

I suspect PSG will finish ahead of us but we should be comfortable second with that group. For Leicester, fans would have liked a glamorous tie I suspect but that is a group they have a strong chance in.

Monaco reminded me of what we used to have. The team just looks like a typical Wenger team with pace, power, high technique, physicality, athleticism...... everything we used to base our teams around. What happened!!! :cry2:
