2011/2012 CHAMPIONS.

Can Chelsea repeat? Who will knock them out if not? (Something Bayern and Barca could not do). Will the other England clubs flame out again quickly this year? How come the random draw gives Man U the easiest group every year? =P

The first set of fixtures contains Man City / Real Madrid. How could it get any better?

I cant remember when was the last time there were so many quality teams in CL

There are at least 6-7 teams that have a good chance to win it all. Whoever wins it will have to either dominate ( like Barca in 10/11 ) or have some out of his world luck ( like Chelsea in 11/12 )

IMO here are the favourites in order :

1. Barcelona
2. Real Madrid
3. Manchester City
4. Bayern Munchen
5. Manchester United
6. Juventus
7. Chelsea
8. Arsenal
9. PSG
10. Porto

It couldnt. both are in my top 5 favorite teams. Can wait. Juventus, my fav, group is pretty hard. Havent seen that many Doneck games, but their squad is strong. Good play making by Ferninando and Srna.Douglas Costa is one of my fav young guys. Dont know much about the Nordsjaeland. And Chelsea is Chelsea. Very good but overrated.

Let me guess, your other 2 favourites are Dortmund ( bundes champ ) and montpelliers ( french champ ). So your 5 favourites include 5 domestic league champions.
What was the word? Oh yeah gloryhunter

Well, they did get better, but yeah, not likely. 15 crossbars and posts in crucial games doesnt happen that often.

No, he would pick Real. He's not as good a fit for Barca. He wouldn't be able to play with the same freedom, they are much more structured. He screams REAL MADRID to me.

This. Along with the fact that Ronaldo will be 30 in 2014. Perfect time to sign him I think.
