The Road to Rome Starts…

The road Rome is a long one but that will end with gold for one team.  Today the draw for the group stages was made and the gods looked favourably on us.

We got Porto, Fenerbahce and Dinamo Kiev.  Not too bad except for the long journeys.  This is a winnable group, three away draws are not beyond our capability aong with three home wins should see us through.

Dinamo Kiev are not the force they were when last met them, though the journey to Kiev will have a knock on effect in the league for us.  The Fenerbahce trip will be awkward, they played well last season and their home ground will not be a walk in the park.  Porto will be a challenge, but if we hit form we should overcome them too.
