    Scottish football in dire straits. When I was growing up there were a few pretty decent players up there like Prso, Nakamura and Larsson and at least one of the big Glasgow clubs were in the Champions League. Nearly scored there but now Celtic just have 10 minutes to find an equaliser against the ****ing champions of Gibraltar.

    Lots of rumours that Rodgers picked the side in the first leg to show how bad the team was and that he needed money to improve it. It was an awful result but there are two legs and Celtic comfortably won the second one and are in the draw which is exactly what Rodgers was brought into achieve. Guaranteed European football. If he made a point in doing so then that to me shows a smart manager.

    Ajax playing Russian team FK Rostov in the fourth Round of the Champions League, we might finally get two Dutch clubs in the Champions League again. Though they could still mess it up, wouldn't be the first time.

    Manchester City should have an easy ride, and there's even a nice fixture in Porto - Roma.

    Steaua București (ROU) v Manchester City (ENG) – 16 & 24 August

    Ajax (NED) v Rostov (RUS) – 16 & 24 August
    Young Boys (SUI) v Borussia Mönchengladbach (GER) – 16 & 24 August
    Villarreal (ESP) v Monaco (FRA) – 17 & 23 August

    Champions route
    Ludogorets Razgrad (BUL) v Viktoria Plzeň (CZE) – 17 & 23 August

    So that whining Milan guy looks to be getting his way then?

    The top-4-go-through rule makes sense to increase competition in the tournament. It's nice to have top teams of the top leagues in, makes the group stages more interesting.

    The "historical merit" thing is absolute bollocks though, and not because we wouldn't benefit from it much. It's not of actual value imo, if a team like Leicester/West Ham/Mainz/Sampdoria are able to fight their way into a place, they should be rewarded. Not their fault Milan was good once-upon-a-time.

    Why? It's like Santi Cazorla at CM for Arsenal and Pablo Hernandez at CM for Leeds.

    I don't think I've ever seen Pep look so worried at the start of a game. He doesn't think his team is ready.
