High chances of us getting an English team since we can get all of them (i think). Hope we miss them as i already see them enough in the league.

Think Chelsea will get:

Pot 2: Barcelona or PSG

Pot 3: Napoli or Roma

Pot 4: Leipzig or Sporting Lisbon

Teams from same nation can't be drawn against each other. Who do you mean by 'us'?

Never mind it slipped my mind that we played Liverpool in the group stage years ago, but it was because they won it a year before.

What pot are Arsenal in? :ph34r:

Sick joking aside...  This year's draw looks very strong and very interesting.  There's gonna be some serious groups out there...  And then there'll be Real Madrid's of course.

I think we're going to have a very entertaining group stage and not just because Liverpool are in but you're right it looks well balanced across the board.

Trying to think of a group of the death, it´d be like this: 

Real Madrid               

Man City/ Man United 

Napoli 

Sporting 

 

or 

Real Madrid 

PSG 

Liverpool/Tottenham 

Feyenoord

That´d be an insane group. One must wonder for whom our beloved friend Antoñito would cheer in a match between PSG and Madrid. xD

I'd need a spitting bucket for that game! xD

But traditions must never die...  I'd be rooting for QSI FC :ph34r:;)

Am I being retarded or are those pots telling me that Shakhtar and Spartak have better coefficients than Barcelona and co?

They go in Pot 1 because they won their league. I can see the argument behind rewarding them for that, but I don't think it's a good system because you can get uneven groups and end up with shit teams in the knockout round while good sides get knocked out early.

Bollocks that. Nothing wrong with the old system. Football has clearly never heard the term "if it ain't broke don't fix it".

Looking at a best possible scenario for English sides. 

Surely United and City want Juve from Pot One, if they don't get Moscow or Benfica? It then rules out Napoli, Roma and obviously Liverpool and Tottenham from Pot Three meaning you're left with Basel, Olympiakos, Anderlecht and Besiktas. 

From a Chelsea point of view, I can't see much which guarantees them a much easier route to the knockout stage. I'd say that avoiding Napoli and Roma is their greatest challenge as then whoever they get from Pot Two and themselves should be progressing. 

For Tottenham and Liverpool, I think the best case is Benfica, Moscow or Donetsk. That does leave a tough draw from Pot Two but barring Leipzig and maybe Feyenoord, it shouldn't be too bad for them.

They won the Europa League, they won an actual trophy, in fact they won two trophies. It's a joke that England has so many teams and the reward for doing nothing is a Champions League place. 

I agree but winning a sub par competition should not give you preference in the premier one.

But finishing 17 points behind the league winners should? Isn't that rewarding failure over rewarding winners, no matter the trophies relevance?

As I said, I agree but one doesn't contradict the other. Winning a subpar cup, espeically with the easiest run i've ever seen to the final, shouldn't be rewarded like that. They should be in the bottom pot/

no idea if this is possible because of all the weird and wonderful ramifications that UEFA like to chuck in, but here's my guess:

Real Madrid
Man City
Napoli
APOEL

Chelsea
Atletico
Anderlecht
Celtic

Benfica
Barcelona
Roma
Leipzig

Monaco
Dortmund
Tottenham
Sporting Lisbon

Bayern Munich
Man Utd
Basel
Maribor

Spartak Moscow
PSG
Liverpool
Feyenoord

Juventus
Porto
Olympiakos
CSKA Moscow

Shakhtar
Sevilla
Besiktas
Qarabaq
