Manchester United in ridiculously easy group shocker....

City look to have by far the toughest task out of the English sides.

Champions of England, Germany, Holland & Spain in the one group. Normally I can live without the CL group stages, save the odd game that may actually be competitive, but City's group will be fascinating to watch.

Chelsea's group is harder than it looks, but their home form should see them through.

Long trips aren't ideal actually, especially not for the following PL games.

You can probably leave most of the first team squad at home for Braga and Cluj.....

I always find it funny how much more fased Europeans are by distance than Americans. Something like Portugal might be seen as a long way, whereas in the US people wouldn't bat an eyelid at travelling a distance like that. London to Kiev is only half the distance of New York to San Francisco, for example - the Cowboys travel a distance about as great as London-Kiev for all of their divisional away games. Granted in the NFL they only play once a week, but it's not always so in other US sports, and it goes way beyond sport anyway to ordinary people as well. Product of being from a bigger country, perhaps.
