Is the official web page. Curiously it says the draw will be explained at 16:45, as though they haven't made their mind up on the rules of the draw yet!

I'm sure I have seen the selection order on another site but can't find it again. We all know that you can't face your own nation's teams and that Pot 1 teams (inc Arsenal, Chelsea and Man U) cannot face other Pot 1 teams.

Presumably each team is drawn against a team from each of the other three pots?

Some really strong teams in Pot 3 - might even be stronger than Pot 2. Plus Dortmund in Pot 4.

Great potential for some really interesting and competitive groups.

Seeding isn't it? Last year was our first venture and we were in Pot 3, so I suppose it's an improvement.

Nice one - but I know you knew that had just been drawn!

We've avoided the ones out of Pot 2 I wanted to avoid. Schalke is an ok draw for our supposed next most successful (at CL) group opponent. Man U get Braga (the Arsenal of Portugal - again, not too tough though they played well in their qualifier - very quick fluid passing). Chelsea get an annoyingly long trip to a difficult Shaktar Donetsk.

Arsenal get Olympiacos as their number 3 team (beatable but can be tricky)

Oh good ManU have picked up Galatasary - always horrid playing in Istanbul - one of my wanted to avoids!

Man City's group already looks like the group of death - Ajax, Real and Man City. All you need now is Celtic to make your nightmare complete!

Edit: Chelsea Shaktar Juve looks pretty tough too!
