    It's today!

    This year, FC Porto has yet to convince me that they can do something special in the CL.

    Season main goal for CL: Pass the group stages. Anything more will be just bonus.

    Dream draw:
    Barcelona
    Basel
    Anorthosis

    Nightmare draw:
    Liverpool
    Zenit
    Fiorentina

    Well, looks like you should be pretty happy I think. I personally think that Arsenal is the weakest of the "A-Pot." Fenerbahce will be tough though.

    I personally think that Group D is the toughest. I'm happy with Barcelona's group though.

    I'm not happy at all! Our fight is mostly with teams from pots C and D.

    It's a double-edged sword to have an inconsistent team from the A pot. If you're lucky, you are the one that catches them on the 'bad' day, but if you're not then your direct opponent will.

    I think it's a very even and tough group to pass. Probably the toughest Porto had in the last years for passing. Maybe the odds of topping the group are a bit better than previous years but that's really not our fight.

    Hmm, now I'm looking again. Actually, when I posted that, I was thinking that Porto had been in a C pot. Sporting has a much easier time than you do, that is for sure... for example. Actually, I think which ever group had Fenerbahce in their group is the most difficult for the "b-pot" team.
