6 group games played across 9 weeks. The other 3 weeks have 2 international breaks and a set of PL fixtures. That doesn’t sound a lot of fun unless we get some of our squad back sharpish.

The group stage would run over 12 weeks normally but it is all changed to fit in the Sportswashing world cup

We breezed through a really difficult group on paper last time but we could really do with a more favourable draw here.

Good draws:
Pot 1: Frankfurt/Porto/Ajax
Pot 2: Liverpool
Pot 3: not much between them
Pot 4: Haifa/Plzen/Copenhagen/Zagreb

Bad draws:
Pot 1: Bayern/PSG/Real Madrid
Pot 2: Liverpool
Pot 3: Inter/Napoli
Pot 4: Rangers/Celtic/Marseille

Also travel to factor in as well. Main thing is avoiding Rangers and Celtic in pot 4 as that'd be 2 high profile/hectic games just off a bottom pot team and avoiding Real/Bayern/PSG. Hopefully avoid a return to France (PSG/Marseille) or Naples from a fan point of view.

We won't want to have to go flat out all 6 matchweeks.

Not sure about avoiding Celtic and Rangers to be honest.

Its up the road and would be equivalent to playing a team hovering 14th in the Premier League away from home, I'd say their ideal pot 4 teams.

Still don’t want them in the group stages. They’d qualify and all it would mean is we couldn’t play them in the last 16 if we both got through. Could still play them from the QFs onwards. Would rather have the Frankfurt/Ajax/Porto options.

Probably get Bayern won't we? Anyway, going by the general mood in here, it doesn't really matter who we draw. Hopefully the mood will swing soon and we'll be the team everyone wants to avoid.

Shaktar are probably the one team you'd want to get from Pot 3 - playing all their European games in Poland and lost pretty much all of their non-Ukranian squad.

Didn't realise that, that would be much better!
Rafa Benitez: "I'll always keep in my heart the good times I've had here, the strong and loyal support of the fans in the tough times and the love from Liverpool. I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

It absolutely won't start at 5. This is a relatively complicated draw (paired teams etc, so they'll be a lot of explanation from the blag Claudio Rainieri)

There's probably going to be a televised draw between him and Alex Scott to get to see who presents the show.

Definitely want Porto who must have PTSD playing us. For the other two, shorter travel is best. Rangers will do and Leverkusen for the 2005 nostalgia. Remains my favourite away game ever.
