    Surprised to see City are in pot 2, they haven't really done anything in Europe. It doesn't seem to take much.

    Major group of death potential in this draw again for everyone with Dortmund, Juventus and PSG where they are.

    What time is the draw tomorrow?

    "UEFA's ranking system is based on a club's European performance in each of the last five seasons, from 2007-08 to 2011-12 inclusively, leaving national champions such as City (28th), Juventus and Borussia Dortmund - whose ranking in 66th place in the co-efficient table sees them facing a position in Pot Four - suffering from their absence from European competition during that period."

    Oh, I know how it works, still surprised. Two quarter final appearances in the Europa League/UEFA Cup (including after getting dumped out of the Champs League last term), one last 16 appearance in the same competition and no European football in the other two seasons; I thought it would take more to be pot 2 in the big boy's comp.

    That sort of record qualifying for pot 2 + their ranking of 28 getting them there suggests that there's a lot of teams who have been stronger over the 5-year period not in this season's competition.

    Damnit. Didn't want them. Shit.

    At least we don't have to go to Italy. I feel like when we get drawn against an Italian team in the CL it is like sentencing our travelling support to stabbing.
