    Lyon have always peformed very well in the CL, but there's been such a mass exodus of talent, it has to catch up with them sooner or later no?

    Look at the names they've lost, Essien, Diarra, Malouda, Tiago, Abidal, etc.

    They still have a lot of talent, Juninho Pernambucano(one of the most underrated mids in the world), Govou, Fred, they even have Baros now. But this Lyon team is not as strong as the ones they have fielded in the last few years.

    Sure I'll agree it is the toughest draw, but it's not as tough as it seems in my mind.
    Pretty spot on analysis ASU. You'd think by the talent on paper at Barcelona that they would breeze through everybody, unfortunately Rijkaard cannot always get his boys to perform to their best level... Sad to say, but this is the same **** the Galacticos went through...

    Compared to the past three seasons when Chelsea were being drawn from pot 2, the group of death doesn't exist this season.

    Thomas Graveson has returned to Everton on loan.

    He's getting old but still a solid for Everton. The last time he played for them, they finished 4th in league.

    Luckily we have Henry, Dos Santos, & Bojan, cuz Eto'o is out for a minimum of 8 weeks with another knee injury....
    Is Bojan going to see much time this year?

    I'm hoping Everton come in 5th. It's just a better game when Everton are a strong rival, you now?

    Lets put it this way, I wouldn't feel sorry for Everton if they end up like Leeds.

    At the rate he's going he should, but now Dos Santos is pulling a Messi and is playing out of his mind.

    btw: Messi >>>>> Ronaldinho


    Oh yeah, Everton are supposedly in talks for Riquelme...

    The little of what I saw of Dos Santos during preseason was ****in impressive.

    I hope the hours go by faster so Everton misses out on Riquelme. The good thing is he does have his share of liabilities. If only Riquelme had Mascherano's work ethic...

    Riquelme is a headcase plain and simple. The problems with a lot of these playmakers (like Ronaldinho, etc.) is that they feel like they don't need to run anymore once they reach a certain level of success. Players like Gerrard and Kaka are amazing players to have on your team because no matter how succesfull they become they will still give it all on the pitch for their team.
