    I meant to say who got shafted from a Group Birth to qualifying. Personally I'd say qualifying is a bit of a shalf investing extra games thinking you weren't supposed to at first. Especially before your season even starts (for most leagues)

    No one got shafted from the Group Stages. Before anything even begins, the allocation is selected: Title Holder, 12 champions from coefficients 1-12, runner ups from coefficients 1-6, third place teams from coefficients 1-3. If the title holder comes from one of these positions, then the champion of coefficient 13 takes the 22nd Group Stage spot. No one gets screwed.

    The only time that the title holder wouldn't be able to participate in Champions League is if they are relegated.

    How sad is it that Braga, Shaktar, Dinamo and Zenit are ahead of us in the Pot rankings.

    Add Manchester City to that group. What have they done in the CL or Europe?

    The draw is on August 30th, 17:45 live on Eurosport

    11:45 EST

    Hopefully Juve get a manageable draw. Would really suck if they get two strong teams in pot 1 and 2 (ie. Man city and Barce) and Dortmund in pot 4 :(

    More than us the past couple years. Not to mention they're a stronger team.

    Bring on Manchester City. What have they done? Eliminated by the true champions of Italy in the group stage!

    LOL - Sure. I saw Manchester City fans go bipolar on the last day of the season. I don't follow the EPL that strongly but do watch their matches. If you guys are afraid of Manchester City, then call the Juve offices and tell them to do a Udinese. There is nothing to fear about City. Just because their ownership threw away a lot of money on exotic names does not make them a powerhouse. They failed last season at the group stage. If they get us, it will happen again. I do support Juve.

    I'm actually with Falc on this. City hasn't looked threatening to me at all so far. Nearly pissing away 3 points at home to Southampton and then drawing a Liverpool team that might actually be fighting to finish in the top 10 does not inspire confidence.
