Good draw. But will Olympiakos be able to afford plane tickets for the away games? 😛

Good draw, should finish top of the group. No long travelling involved, so this is probably the ideal draw.

As a real gooner I think its a good draw for us. We just have to take each game as they come. However I think the team we need to watch out for in the group is schalke 04. Wenger and the guys should just take things tight at the back in the game.

There are winners, there are losers and there are ‘teams (Arsenal)’ who have not yet learned how to win.
