I couldn’t find it but the draw is going on now. Feel free to delete if we do. Group F though…
I think Union have a good chance in C, all will probably come down to the Napoli game.Yeah, I was REALLY hoping that Union Berlin went to that group instead of Group C, which is pretty rough.
F is the GoD, with A #2 IMO. Then C and D are next and then it seems like a pretty big drop to the other four groups
Probably the best for NUFC, they were ahead of schedule getting here. Groups B, D, and E should produce competitive, and hopefully fun, matches.NUFC gets to sing "We're going to Italy" and . . . that's probably it. Don't hate the Celtic draw.
There's always one. I low key think PSG are going to be very strong this year. By shedding Messi and Neymar, they're going to have much more legs for defending in the front line, and while I don't think Lucho is a master tactician, he's smart enough to know how to build team balance. I'm not sure how good their MF corps is, but there's enough quality that they could really do some work. The key question for their UCL campaign is timing--can Lucho get this team humming in time to make it out of the group?That group F is something else. You could hear the gasp in the audience.
Very pleased with Barca's draw. They are in a mini-crisis at the moment though, and do need to steady the ship before I feel good about their chances to progress.Obviously that group F is the headliner. The others look pretty straightforward for the bigger clubs.
For La Liga teams, Barcelona must be pretty excited after last season and definitely could use the money of a semi deep run. Sevilla will of course finish third in their group then go on to win the Europa League. They’re currently dead last in La Liga. Atleti must like their group too, but we said that last season. I’m looking forward to Kvaradona versus Real Madrid myself. Sociedad also probably like the draw given that they were in pot 4.
I thought he was maybe running back to his line before Atl could pick the ball out of the net and start again?His celebration is so perfect. He has absolutely no fucking clue how to react so he runs around trying to figure something out.
I have nightmares about players scoring against Atlético in the final minutes off a header from a corner.Oh wow! Lazio’s keeper scores a header with the last touch of the game to get a draw.
I’m going to be watching at home. Peter and Luis are in Madrid and my other friend that I go to a lot of games with, Tom, is on a flight to Vancouver, hoping wifi gets him through with updates.
I didn’t understand how Onana commanded such a fee over the summer and I still don’t. He’s been prone to these mistakes throughout his career. De Gea was as mistake prone but could still make spectacular saves. Onana might be an upgrade with his feet but he’s nowhere near the shot stopper that De Gea is and doesn’t cancel that out by being in any way solid.Howler and ManU down 1-0.
