Don't want to be going to Greece needing to get a result especially as we've got two much bigger games straight afterwards against our virtual trophy rivals West Brom and a proper cup match at Bradford

Agree steve0. Everton A, Swansea H, W.Brom H around that Olympiacos game. All three PL games are crucial. If we play the way we did in the first 20 minutes yesterday then we will be lucky to get 1pt in the three games.

The only team olympiacos have picked up points against were montpellier.... Nothing to suggest they'll get anything in schalke especially if they play anything like they did a couple of weeks back against us. And if the Germans lose then it puts their own qualification in doubt.

Think it will all be all over on Wednesday night, with Athens as the dead rubber (again!)......

Hard to disagree with that really - if we are to stay in this comp then obviously winning the group is the preferred choice but really I'm not sure I want us to stay in it :oops:

We won the group last year and got humped by Milan. If we win it again no doubt we'll end up with Madrid or Dortmund and we'll be out again

I don't want it mucking up our League Cup chances. Just beat Montpellier and send out a team of kids to Greece. Doesn't matter if we come 1st or 2nd - as soon as we play a team of Madrid or Dortmund's calibre we are out anyway

This season has been mostly after the lord mayors show flatness for them
and they badly miss Giroud who was a focal point but they battered us 2nd half at Mosson
I thinkBelhanda and Cabella will be at big CL clubs next season/after winter
This is a big game for their careers, they will be up for it

We will lose and everything will be charred to a lifeless crisp in the Wenger garden. :(

EDIT: Shit, nobhead got in ahead of me by 2 posts again :(

Would prefer an Olympiacos result in Schalke as it gives us more of a shot at 1st place but as someone rightly pointed out, we're in trouble anyway if we get a Juventus or a Real Madrid, so claiming top spot guarantees nothing as it is. Probably best to try and wrap it up now and send the kids on their annual trip to Greece.

Agree JD they'll most certainly be gone by the end of the year. Think Montpellier have a very enigmatic chairman but remember seeing some quotes from him basically baulking at the prospect of paying somebody more than £20k/w or something like that. He seemed to thrive on their future being as a selling club. They are fucking turd really (one or two aforementioned players apart) and I expect we'll beat them quite comfortably.

Finishing 1st/2nd doesn't matter too much to me as we could well end up getting a very good team finishing 1st or a decent team finishing 2nd, and besides in a way it's quite nice to be able to play a decent team and get a hiding rather then being unceremoniously dumped out by somebody like Shakhtar or PSV. Quite fancy Madrid and loan saviour TH14 to repeat his Bernabeu heroics :barscarf: :barscarf: :barscarf: :lol:

in terms of away days I'd love
Malaga, who have won their group - lovely part of the world decent weather
PSG, might well win theirs - never seen us win in Paris but had 3 legendary trips
Celtic - midweek drinks in Glesga, your weekend starts here

want to avoid
Porto been there done that. The sherry museum doesn't need a 3rd visit (Braga could go through too)
Barca, sick of being Messi-lated
Zenit/Shaktar too far and expensive...

was going to say whoever comes 2nd in ManUre's group of budge is best avoided for dullness
but Istanbul can be quite lively
