Tough draw for Ajax

Yeah... kinda like quenching our thirst with a pillowcase full of unopened soda cans.

In a Champions League too often lacking champions you got four in one group. Damn.

Jayboy said...

Yikes, that group is insane. Man U seems to have a pretty easy group. Also, I think either Schalke or Nordsjaelland can advance.

Cam said...

who do you have Nordjaelland beating out?...Chelsea or Juve?

Cam said...

..or Shakhtar?...it's tough for me to not see them in the basement of the that group but I hope otherwise

Jay Eychaner said...

I can see Nordsjæland pipping a single surprise win at home, but otherwise this is a tough row to hoe.

GD said...

Jayboy - I thought United had an easy group last year too. Whoops!

Jayboy said...

Oops - you are all right! I was thinking Anderlecht has a fighting chance of advancing, but Parkhurst and Nordsjaelland are in for a tough group. Malaga transferred a few stars out, Russian teams are always a wild card, and AC Milan is not the beast it once was.
