Champions League Draw!


I’m kicking back watching the Champions League draw as we speak and I am so excited to see who draws who for the first group stages. I got a funny feeling Chelsea are going to be drawn in a tough group as usual…

Seriously though, how much of a mooiness is this chick doing the announcements of the awards. I wouldn’t mind being in Monaco right now. Would be good wouldn’t it?

Well done to Julio Cesar for taking Club Goalkeeper of the Year, he really does deserve it though after an amazing season with Inter who claimed the UEFA Champions League earlier this year. Maicon took Club Defender of the Year. Gianfranco Zola was the one to hand out the award for Club Midfielder of the Year and he handed the award to none other than Dutch striker Wesley Snjieder. The Dutch midfielder had an outstanding World Cup and his season for Inter, he was too good. The Club Forward of the Year was presented to Diego Milito. Not my choice of player, but I guess it’s because he was on the winning team that took the Champions League. I would have given the award to Messi.

I was wrong… That is looking good. They have done the draw so that no team from the same league will play against each other in the opening rounds, which is much better I think. I guess I was wrong as well and Chelsea have been drawn with a fairly relaxed group, although I won’t write any of those teams off just yet. Football is a mystical game and anything can happen. My group to watch is Group G, never anything wrong with watching AC Milan and Real Madrid going head to head in group stage. Although group A is also looking like it could be quite a tight group to call right now.

I cant wait till Champions League starts again…

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
