Group of death would be AC Milan, Ajax, City, Villa and Standard Liege! We are going to have to beat some quality teams in order to progress, so I guess we just take what we are given. Spuds in pot 1? LOL!

Two teams from the same Football Association cannot be drawn in the same group. Take out Villa oliverblue and replace them with who?

Hmmm! Zagreb I guess! Difficult trip, and it sounds cold too! Let's face it, there are no mugs left in the competition now. So whoever we get, we will have to be at our absolute best in order to progress.

Have to agree mate. In theory we could be travelling as far as Eastern Europe, twice. Can't see many City fans travelling that far. The cost would be huge.

This is a real pot luck, isn't it? One team from each pot means we could be in the same 5-team group as AC Milan. But never teams from the same country... I confess I do not understand how this works. The last time we got this far was the European Cup Winners' Cup!

According to Vital sites from the other English clubs in the pots -- it would seem the trick is to win your two home games, in which case qualification becomes quite simple. So it looks like we will need two Fortress Eastlands performances, and the odd draw to get through. To be honest all of the teams in the pots are now difficult to beat. But if we have to face AC Milan, Hamburg or Deportivo I would much rather it was at Eastlands with a capacity crowd.

Oh yes! AC Milan at a packed CoMS. That's surely what it's all about!

Pray to get Spartak Moscow from pot 2, they're a complete mess at the moment! Even Heerenveen would be a tougher team at this point.

it doesnt matter who we play.....if we are to progress, we have to beat or get results against these better teams. I think we will play much better against the stronger teams.....

There does not appear to be any what could be described as easy matches even from pot 5, but that is pretty much what to expect at this stage of the competiotion.
