    Can you believe that the first round of qualifying actually starts this Tuesday :eek: Although the teams playing I've never even heard of.

    yeah, I was just going to wait until later to start this but technically it's on now.

    we have the champions of armenia, andorra, san marino, gibraltar, estonia and the faroe islands starting their assault on the title.

    Good to know Suarez will now 100% play the final, considering he's going to get booked for simulation in the semis anyway.

    Pretty sure FIFA has already changed it, were there any suspensions in the World Cup final?

    I believe you can still be suspended for the semis if you pick up the 3rd yellow in the quarters, but if you have 2 yellows after the quarters, they'll expire going into the semis.

    Surprise, surprise. Man City get a ridiculous group, Chelsea also get a ridiculous group. Really can't see Chelsea losing the title now with a group like this. No difficult travel at all. City on the other hand head to Russia!

    Should be easy enough for Arsenal and Liverpool to get through too, though Galatasaray and Basel are always tough.

    I'm okay with that group actually, better than nothing, finally Liverpool VS Real Madrid battle, Real will surely get their first win over Liverpool now.

    What really pisses me off is Porto and Benfica's group, they do not deserve to be in pot 1 and every season they seem to escape from the grasp of a tough team out of pot 2 or 3, always get Bayer or Bilbao level teams out of pot 2 and 3, hopefully Bilbao and Shakhtar knock Porto out and Bayer and Monaco do the same to Benfica.

    I'm confident that we'll get out of this group of death though and the main difference from the group of death's we were in before (11-12 and 12-13) and now is that, the confidence that's come in with a change in mentality to a winning one.
    --- Double Post Merged, ---
    The fixtures are out and we open with Bayern (a game sandwiched in between an away game at Arsenal and a home game vs Chelsea :facepalm), was hoping we'd open with CSKA away so we wouldn't have to deal with the cold weather and get it out of the way in September, but instead we play them in mid/late October...
