    Wow, Celtic.

    Definetly, Arsenal's and Barca's groups are... OP lol.

    Anyway, I never really cared about groups in tournaments. If you wanna be the best, you either beat big teams now, or you do it later, nothing really changes.

    No. No. No. No. You want the easiest teams to play as far along as possible. So you can worry about other tournaments. You dont want to be facing huge games midweek after your normal league game. Fuck that. You want to go to fucking basel, kick it around a bit, win 2-0 and come back comfortable and hope to do that as long as it is feasible. If you're lucky you can get to the semi's like that. That's what everyone wants.

    Or you can win against great teams to raise your team's morale... or you can get 3rd place, play the UEFA Cup against mid tier teams, win it and act as if you had an amazing year.

    Also, it feels like a cheap way to win a tournament.

    Not even winning, advancing in a tournament.

    The "or" is not come third place. The "or" is win by playing against shitty teams. Which is infinetly more preferable.

    Everyone wants to play against two lower class teams in the group stages. It's just easier on you. You don't want to be traveling to Siberia or anything, but it happens.

    Imo Barcelona's group is the group of death though.

    Dunno, it's simply the way I see it. Prolly because South America doesn't have the same amount of great teams as Europe (I'm talking about Libertadores' groups here) or because Argentina always gets the death group in WCs and always manages to easily get to the next round (except in 2002, fuck it). I know a WC =/= as a CL btw.

    What do you expect? He didn't start supporting Arsenal until 1998.

    Agreed. Especailly as UEFA's co-efficient system treats a win against Barcelona or Wigan as the same. Ask Celtic who had to start qualifying even earlier this year than they did last season.
