European and Domestic Cups Discussion 2016/2017

Post by Jay29 on Tue Aug 23, 2016 12:21 pm

The draw for the Champions League group stages is on Thursday. Arsenal will be, of course, in Pot 2 once more (meanwhile, Leicester fcking City sit nice and cozy in Pot 1), which means playing a super club and so on. The pots aren't complete just yet - those will be up Wednesday night when the playoffs have concluded.

There are also EFL Cup 2nd round matches this week. If you don't know, the EFL Cup was the Capital One cup last year, and the Carling Cup before that. I've never seen a cup go through so many name changes. Just goes to show the worthlessness of it... anyway, the draw for the third round will be on Wednesday I think, and we'll be involved.

FA Cup draw not for a few months yet.

There are some shit teams in pot 1 so maybe we might get lucky after finishing 2nd in the groups

Well if we're lucky we'll get either Benfica or CSKA Moscow from Pot 1. Pot 3 actually doesn't look that bad because at the moment the hardest team we could draw would be Lyon/Sporting CP/PSV and maybe Roma. There aren't any surprises in Pot 4 either.

Hardest possible draw imo would be:

Barcelona, Arsenal, Roma, Besiktas

Easiest:

CSKA, Arsenal, Club Brugge, Ludogorets/Plzen

After tonight's results, this is what the CL pots look like:

Pot 1: Madrid, Barca, Bayern, Juve, PSG, Leicester, Benfica, CSKA Moscow

Pot 2: Atleti, Sevilla, Dortmund, Leverkusen, Porto, Napoli, Arsenal, Manchester City*

Pot 3: Spurs, Dynamo Kyiv, Lyon, PSV, Sporting CP, Club Brugge, Basel*, BMG*

Pot 4: Monaco, Besiktas, Legia Warsaw, Ludogorets, Celtic*

Still to be sorted: Ajax/Rostov, APOEL/Kobenhavn, Salzburg/Zagreb

* City need to be knocked out for Basel to be Pot 2, which is highly unlikely. BMG have 3 away goals on Young Boys so it's likely they'll be through as well. That would put Celtic in Pot 4.

So my revised hardest group:

Barca, Arsenal, Sporting CP/PSV/BMG, Monaco

I just don't want to see Barca or Bayern again. Any other Pot 1 team would be more interesting to watch. Not like we're going to win our group anyway.

Would love to face Madrid or PSG. Might even give us an outside chance for a home win.

Seems like that sort of match which we would lose by playing kids but no one at the club would be bother.

Looking forard to the PSG ties. And contrary to what Sportsczy might say with all his France-bias, I think we will give PSG two really good games.

The fixture list doesn't look too bad but we do have one run in November of Spurs - United - PSG that looks terrifying.

No Wednesday away in Europe followed by Saturday early kick off Nonsense this time

It's a tough group, all the teams in this group have european experience. If last year has taught us anything is that we can't underestimate anyone. Not looking forward to the basel and ludo games at all Mad
