Arsenal got a nice easy draw...United's group contains three domestic champions...Chelski has a fairly tough group with Porto and Atletico Madrid but should still do just fine...Liverpool in the group of death, but if there's one English club that knows how to progress in the CL it's them.

I'm not sure that Liverpool's group is the group of death. It definitely has three solid knowns. But I just don't think Fiorentina is that good. Lyon has made a few good signings and will be hard to beat though.

I just think there are other groups on par with Liverpool's group, that have three quality knowns (I say knowns because the newbes aren't necessarily write-offs, they're just unknowns to a lot of people...like me for instance). A and D in particular. Bayern Munich just signed Robben, and even if they hadn't, I doubt they'd be as inconsistent as they were last year. Bordeaux, French champions w/ probably the most popular manager in France...I have a good feeling about Diego at Juve, having seen him play a few times in Germany last year.

I guess Liverpool's pick is as good as any as a "group of death" but there are a lot of 3-quality-team-deep groups.

p.s. as predicted earlier, Inter will win the CL. Just signed Sneijder too. And Real Madrid will not make the semifinals. Cause they suck. Relatively speaking.

Liverpool in the group of death? When i saw the draw i immediately thought how hard Chelsea and Man Utd's groups were, thinking Pool had got off a bit lucky. Arsenal is the 'easiest' for sure.

Here's what i think:

Group A - Should be exciting...i think Bayern and Juve will move on.
Group B - Maybe I should be worried as a Manchester United fan, but I'm really not...I see them moving on from this group with relative ease
Group C - This group is going to be EPIC to watch AC Milan/Real Madrid! Enough said!
Group D - Tough group. I say Chelsea and Atletico move on.
Group E - Another tough group. I say Pool and Lyon advance.
Group F - BARCA/INTER is going to be amazing! they will both easily advance to the knockout stage.
Group G - Interesting group. I see Sevilla and Rangers moving on.
Group H - Could be an exciting group, but I see Arsenal and the Dutch side AZ moving on.

WHEW! i'm done for today! haha
