I see what you do there by saying that Arsenal is the only British team to win CL but this injury are piling up now. Pls write something on it so we know situation of things. Thanks Tim

What’s the correlation between Arsenal being the only team to have won the WCL and an injury situation?

Abbey

I don’t understand why y’all misunderstood what I wrote there but is Ok

Henkamp

Surprised to see Man City couldn’t complete the job at home.

Wouldn’t be surprised if we get Juventus, though.

Well done to Arsenal Women. Always a shining example.

I would prefer us not to play Barca yet, don’t mind either PSG or Bayern. Tough game anyway, but would like Jonas to have more time to work with this team before Barca rolls to town. And also I would really really like us to get Juve from 3d group.

Christina

To see how we measure up against Barca, PSG, or Bayern will be interesting and exciting. I cannot wait for the group stage to start!

Elise

Yeah I’d also like for us to draw Juventus! Also, quite nice that we avoid Chelsea, Lyon and Wolfsburg in the group stage.

I agree that Barcelona is probably the team to beat. Maybe an advantage to play them twice in the group stage and learn how they play? I assume 2nd place in group progresses also to knockouts? Or maybe a disadvantage psychologically to be beaten by them twice in the group stage?

Elise

Also I feel like we have a bill to settle with PSG… so I think I hope we draw them

To the be the best, we have to beat the best. Bring on any of them !!!

Love the last question and answer. F**k you and your dodgy money Chelsea and Man City.

I love that last line ❤💋

Really hope we draw Servette, then I can maybe catch them live here in Switzerland!

Viv The 🐐

Will the first two in every group go on in the tournament?
Will be interesting how we fare against the champs from the other leagues. Also, by then we will hopefully have had more time to get into a groove and to settle with Jonas’s strategies and tactics.
I’m pumped to say the least.

Good that being in pot 2 means we avoid Lyon, Wolfsburg, and (apparently!) Icelandic giants Breiðablik!
