Ahhhh Benifica, I don't like going to Portugal. United don't have success there.

FC Copenhagen, good draw for United. The Benefica tie is tricky, but the trip to Celtic shouldn't be too bad, same with Copenhagen.

Liverpool get to go back to Istanbul. That's always a tricky trip though.

Yeah, but Liverpool have good success in Istanbul
Interesting groups. Let's hope Man U takes care of Benifica this year though, haha
That team did both of our teams in last year.

Tricky trip because its not a neutral site this go around. Turkey is like the wild wild west. And their fans are maniacs. United drew Fenerbache 2 years ago and we were lucky that we were already through by the time the away match came up. You never want to go into Turkey needing a win.

I was WATCHING it. I get European tv at work... Why do AC Milan & RM always get easy draws??? Oh well, that's what CL is all about, the Big Boys going mano a mano...

Bolton sign Anelka
With this move, Big Sam will probably feature a 4-4-2 more often. Anelka is not suited to playing as a lone striker in the 4-5-1 that Bolton have been used to playing. I think the 4-5-1 will still feature against top sides when Bolton are looking to take a point, but against weaker sides, we'll see a more attacking Bolton.

Bolton beating the Spurs in week 1 was epic.
