Uefa Champions League Thread

1,580 Replies 2,288 Views Created 05-08-2009
I've decided to post this as not only are the 3rd round qualifiers completed tonight before the play-offs but also to help the one game threads that will more than likely pop up over the course of the season.

Tonight's main talking points where Celtic finally breaking their six year away 'hoodoo' without a win and beating Dinamo Moscow 2-0 away from home to progress to the play-offs with a 2-1 aggregate win and last year's UEFA Cup winners Shaktar Donetsk being knocked out by unknown Romanian side Politehnica Timisoara on away goals.

Thoughts on this and the other matches that went ahead?


I don't expect this thread to hit off straight away but come the Champions League proper, it'll hopefully pick up :smileyhappy:

Stuttgart could still upset you.

 

I'm happy that Wolfsburg got Man United because they have a realistic chance of going through.

 

I'm also happy that Real Madrid got AC Milan. Other than Bayern, they would be the easiest but still offer some competition. The only bad thing is that Kaka was desperately hoping not to meet them after reluctantly leaving this summer.

A nice easy group for us :)

 

Liverpool and Chelski might have a few problems but I expect the rest of the English teams to qualify easy.

If we can play like we can we will go through.
Lyon finished behind Bordeaux last season in the league and have lost Benzema, Fiorentina didn't really impress in the qualifying game against Sporting and Debrecen well they'll be the team that probably beat us! :smileytongue:
Seriously though, I'm happy with the group.

United's is fairly easy bar tricky trips to Wolfsburg and CSKA Moscow, Chelsea's is slightly harder though with Porto and Atletico who look impressive!

I thought the same when I saw the draw. I wasn't here when the transfer happened but I think Barcelona were robbed. Ibrahimovic may be able to play for Barcelona but a straight swap would have been acceptable, this transfer ranks about the same value of the Ronaldo transfer.

 

Hopefully Ibra will be able to show his worth though and I still wish for Eto'o to succeed with Inter because I think he is a brilliant player unfortunately forced out of Barcelona in a similar way to Sneijder/ Robben at Real Madrid.

We should qualify really. I reckon Chelsea have the hardest group out of our teams as Athletico are a quality team (saw them at Anfield a few weeks ago) but Porto never do that well against our teams. Apart from when Mourinho was in charge.

I never said that you asked for those teams I'm just saying your jammy you got them.

 EDIT:  oh yeah and why not rangers in pot 2? are you saying rangers are even close to being as good as Real Madrid, Inter and Juventus?  In pot 3 Marsielle, Fiortina, Stuttgart and Athletico are better teams than rangers.

 

Seriously is stupid if you ask me.

No British club can complain with those draws. I think Chelsea have the hardest group but based on ability of the teams I think all the English clubs will qualify easily, and Rangers will qualify probably on the last game.

 

Good luck all.

I completely agree, But Chelsea should still qualify hopefully with ease as long as we don't slip up againsy Athletico or that team from Cyprus.

So... what's everyone's views on Eduardo getting banned for 'deceiving the referee'? I think it's a disgrace tbh, and I completely agree with everything Wenger said on the matter - except I do think he dived, I couldn't see any contact.

But that's not the point IMO, usually the referee's dicision is always final; he shouldn't get banned for diving, it never had an effect on the match and he's been very unlucky.

 

I particularly agree with 'They have opened a very dangerous door now, every decision made by a referee will get challenged from now on'.

Wenger was spot on with his comments. There has been so many incidents over the years so why have they got involved now. Eduardo has done nothing different to others and although it is wrong what he did you cannot just ban someone without announcing a rule change. Had they said prior to this incident that all diving incidents will be looked at then you couldn't argue. But they haven't so I think banning him is out of order and they have opened the doors for a lot of these cases now. It really is time FIFA and UEFA got people in charge with some sense.
