Wow. Group D.

Nice one Arsenal. Get lucky to get into the Group Stage, get placed probably in the toughest group.

It's odd not seeing Man-U in this!

It's odd seeing Liverpool in this.  ;D

Man City and Bayern in the same group again. Oh wow, Roma in that group too. Tough group.

How good is CSKA Moscow? I have researched and found out they are the Russian League champions. They are in the same group. I assume they are no pushovers, but I have no clue if they're good or not (good meaning in the same class  as frequent Champions League clubs).

Glad Arsenal got a tough draw. Sick of seeing fourth best teams in their league get the red carpet treatment just because of what league they are in.

Well, I'm relieved, Arsenal's group this year is easier than last year. They're better than Galatasaray and Anderlecht and Dortmund has gotten worse. I'd rather be in Chelsea's group, but I'm not even worried. Second or first should be easy.

But lol at City. I don't have much hope for their survival.

Better than Galatasaray? Not on the evidence of their first two games...

Manchester City get a tough draw, boo hoo hoo. The most financially doped team in sporting history will get sympathy from nobody when they go out :)

No one asked you to have a cry for us.  We should be just fine, if we play up to our usual standard.  If Roma finishes above us to qualify for the knock-out stages, it will have surely earned that trip. 

You know, some might submit that 'financial doping' means different things to different folks.  I have yet to see Man City splurge 60 million on a di Maria, 50 million on a Luiz, 80 million on a CR, 86 million on a Bale, 58 million on a Falcao, etc.  That's British pounds, not euros...

They are a good experienced squad that almost never gets very far in this tournament. Think Atlanta Hawks. Very capable of upsetting some of the other teams in Moscow, but 0% chance for getting out of this tough group, IMO.

Couldn't have asked for a more favourable group as a Chelsea fan. No excuses whatsoever if they don't get through.

I am so bright so could you explain how your material proves that MN city doesn t spend - overpay as much as PSG or real?

Funny to see people think that BPL has good teams and that Arsenal has a following. You know, there are other teams and leagues out there with better football and better teams. Eventhought I'm not a big BPL, Man city is waaaaaaay better than arsenal and it's all thanks to their coach. Wenger is an old French guy who lucked out to be handed an amazing generation of players 14 years ago and thinks he is SAF. Jose is ten times the coach he his (and I hate JM). AW can't motivate his players (like JM) can't educate his players (jack wilshere cigs and Chicha scandal) and doesn't win... Keep dreaming arsenal fans
