Chelsea obviously won the pre-season sealed bids for Platini's hot and cold balls, handpicking their Champions League group, not for the first time. City's a bit tougher with Bayern and a trip to Moscow, but relatively routine compared to previous seasons and they should expect to qualify i think. United shouldn't have any trouble, though the Sociedad games could be decent. Celtic get the GoD, Arsenal get a bit of a rotter as well.
Some quite good sides bounced out of the Europa League - Braga, Feyenoord, Udinese, Stuttgart, etc, as Spurs and Swansea breeze through after routine first legs. Draw later.
Bayern v Chelsea tonight in what's effectively the European Charity Shield. Please spare a thought for AbsKelly, who i expect will be gutted at having to fly to another major European capital to see his team win more silverware.
