I'm just glad we avoided Bayern. This group we have is definitely winable.

Dont underestimate Dynamo. They just defeated Sparta Moscow which is the second best team in Russia.

Should be alright. I'm glad we didn't get a Villarreal, Fiorentina or Atletico. It could of been worse but I'm sure Wenger won't be happy with going to Kiev or Turkey in the Winter.

I have serious doubts about whether Liverpool can make it through their group.

it could hav been a lot lot worse so i am happy about it to be honest. going to turkey and the Ukraine doesnt sound too appealing thought in terms on hostile supporters but still the teams arent as good as the ones in liverpools group

Surely now Arsene has to go out and buy some quality players to deal with the group. All of the teams we got are attacking ones and our defence is pretty suspect lately, especially when Toure & Gallas play together.

On arsenal.com in the key battles it has Toure vs Owen. If that's anything to go by then it seem that Djourou will again be unnecessarily dropped, even after his good displays.

The key will be the away matches according to Danny Fiszman. Fenerbahce can make suprise like last year against Chelsea. We must improve our devensive role. Shall we buy Raúl Albiol? 😀
