Miss K Fixes The Champion's League Draw...

A few days ago, I posted THIS POST. Then Tigerjoe decided to say something:

The scousers must have felt a little "lebanese" for the last 20 minutes or so of that match. *pppphhhhbbbrrrrrrrrrtttttt* - tigerjoe

Then I said:

well, at least now that we're in the group stages, we can enjoy our top seed status... have fun in the second pot, chelski. Hah! - eyeris

And he said:

Eyeris: Season after next bro, then we'll see who is in what pot. - tigerjoe

And then I said, rather prophetically:

ah.. no past worth mentioning about, so you've taken to looking the future eh? have fun with Barcelona in the group stages. :D - eyeris

Well, lookie here then:

Group A: Barcelona, Chelsea, Werder Bremen, Levski Sofia
Group B: Internazionale, Bayern Munich, Sporting Lisbon, Spartak Moscow
Group C: Liverpool, PSV Eindhoven, Bordeaux, Galatasaray
Group D: Valencia, AS Roma, Olympiakos, Shakhtar Donetsk
Group E: Real Madrid, Lyon, Steaua Bucuresti, Dynamo Kiev
Group F: Manchester United, Celtic, Benfica, FC Copenhagen
Group G: Arsenal, FC Porto, CSKA Moscow, Hamburg
Group H: AC Milan, Lille, AEK Athens, Anderlecht

Oops. Looks like Miss K DOES pay attention after all.

One day ago Mounrinho moaned that the seedings were not fair because "The way the groups are made is wrong, the criteria to be seeded in the groups". Oh, and he also complained that "For me the competition is not correct and you are in a lucky situation if the best team in Europe wins the competition"...

Wait a sec. He didn't complain all THAT much when he was winning the trophy with Porto a few years back, did he? So now he got all the money and all the best players in the world, NOW he starts complaining that the draw is unfair? Bloody hypocrite.

Anyway, it seems as though Miss K has bitten him in the ass and handed him probably the toughest group of all. (Poor Levski Sofia. First time in Champions League and kena Barca, Chelski and Werder Bremen. They'll never know what hit them...)

That said, Liverpool's group doesn't seem too easy either. PSV, Bordeaux and Galatasaray are teams that are very unpredictable. I especially hate it when they play Turkish teams. They always seem to lose wan.. sigh.

Manyoo's group should be fun though. Benfica again huh? What are the chances eh?

Of the four English clubs, Arsenal's group is easiest though. But can't beat Milan's group. Sheesh I know lar they nearly got relegated and all. But don't have to give them THAT easy a group right?
