Re: Champions League 2012/13

Drogba joins Galassarray too making it more difficult for Schalke.

Re: Champions League 2012/13

Drogba is washed up. I predict he will be a non-factor. He scored a goal in the CL Final, but he had a very poor year for Chelsea.

Re: Champions League 2012/13

Final predictions:

Galatasaray vs. Schalke
Celtic vs. Juventus
Arsenal vs. FC Bayern
Shakhtar Donetsk vs. Dortmund
AC Milan vs. FC Barcelona
Real Madrid vs. Manchester United
Valencia vs. PSG
Porto vs. Malaga

Could see Galatassaray kicking Schalke's ass though, they've been really bad lately.

Re: Champions League 2012/13

Not enough games to choose from, but at least Celtic-Juve is an appealing matchup. PSG I couldn't care less about.

Re: Champions League 2012/13

One of my best friends is a HUGE PSG fan and I would love for them to get knocked out to shut him up. Go Valencia and make Ibra look like a bitch.

Re: Champions League 2012/13

how would you guys feel about Europa Winner/Finalist qualifying for UCL?

Quote:
A survey has found that a majority of clubs would support the Europa League winners or finalists qualifying for the Champions League.

The survey by European Clubs Association (ECA), which represents 207 of the top clubs in Europe, revealed 61% of the clubs asked would welcome the extra incentive for the Europa League.

Eighty-seven of the ECA's member clubs from 36 countries responded to the survey. The results were as follows:
Quote:
An ECA statement said: "The results of the survey clearly show that European clubs are very happy with the current competitions and do not wish to see major changes to their structure.

"The option whereby the Europa League winner/finalists automatically qualify for the Champions League group stage of the new season raised some interest and support provided that the effects on the access list are carefully considered."

UEFA president Michel Platini has said that all proposals will be considered, with any changes starting in 2015.
I dont get why this hasnt been done already. It would get alot of teams taking Europa League seriously and liven it up

I agree, they're surely a better team than Dynamo Zagreb.

Re: Champions League 2012/13

I would like the Europa League winner to qualify, absolutely. Only problem I have is that it takes a spot away from a team that legitimately qualified, just like Chelsea did last year. Winners spots should be guaranteed beyond the spots each nation gets. Basically give 2 automatic byes in the qualifiers, and if you have a champion that doesn't qualify through league placement, they take one of the byes.

Re: Champions League 2012/13

My predictions


Galatasaray vs. Schalke

I don't like either team, but I don't rate Drogba and Sneijder anymore. This is probably just a homer pick.

Celtic vs. Juventus

Juve could have some problems scoring, but they are the better team.

Arsenal vs. FC Bayern

Blowout. I'm thinking this will be like a 5-1 or worse aggregate defeat for the Gunners. They are totally overmatched and it seems to me that Wilshere gets frustrated when he has to defend a lot. Bayern are going to DOMINATE possession, and I think he'll get sent off at some point.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs. Dortmund

I think Dortmund is a great team, but they're a little ****ed. Shakhtar are a legitimate team, for one, their record in their league so far has to be historic. Dortmund are also probably without both of their fullbacks and Grosskreutz (the emergency FB) for the first leg in Ukraine. I just think it's going to be tough for the German champs and I'm a long admirer of Shakhtar.

AC Milan vs. FC Barcelona

Easiest one for me to pick. I think this is going to have an outrageous aggregate, like 8-1.

Real Madrid vs. Manchester United

Hardest one for me to pick. I've probably picked Man U here or somewhere else, but I guess I'll just fall back on the team with the most talent.

Valencia vs. PSG

PSG are just too good IMO. Valencia have leaked talent for about 5 years. Imagine them with Villa, Silva, Mata, etc.

Porto vs. Malaga

I consider Porto one of the world's elite.

Couple wild card picks. Real vs Man Utd is such an incredible matchup.

I'll admit I know nothing about Shakhtar, but apparently the guy Willian that they sold was a pretty important player of theirs.
