    < ![CDATA[Not such a bad group, could have been worse.

    Should beat Fenerbahce and Kiev, Porto will give us a good game but should still finish the group with 12+ points and qualify.

    As long as we keep our best players fit it will be okay, Played well against Twente last night, saw a bit more of Walcott and what he can really do as well as Djourou and Nasri showed he's more than a replacement for Hleb.

    Was a shame we didn't get to see Ramsey or Vela though, thought Vela should have come on at half-time instead of Eboue who has to be honset been useless for us!]]>

    this is draw makes me happy. i will like to see how we fare against fenerbahce what with aragones being the manager and with guiza being there too. but we will def get out of the groups in 1st this year.

    < ![CDATA[Why is everyone calling Group G " the group of death"?
    Yes they have not drawn against easy teams. But I believe that Liverpool has a much harder journey ahead of them then Arsenal has
    I believe that we will not fly through with eas. But as a true Gunner I have the faith in them that they are capable of going at least to the next round]]>

    < ![CDATA[I'm surprised by the comments above, we played well against Twente, but lets face it they made us look good. Its not quite the return to form that some are heralding.

    And I'm pretty sure this group will see the most travelling out of all the groups, given England is one side of 'Europe' and Turkey/Russia are the other. Its a group of death in as much as 6-8 hour flights book ending 90 minutes of football surrounded by away trips to Bolton and Blackburn all within 7 days isn't exactly going to be a walk in the park with our slim squad.

    Still, I suppose we'll have to have faith!]]>

    I hope to see good matches and hopefully, Porto will go trough.

    And npw a piece of advice to arenal fans who will come to Oporto, our best beer it's superbock but you must notice, it's quite strong, just like our team!

    Good Luck!]]>

    FENERBAHCE we should watch out for them there are very strong team, they have very clever manager, should watch out for alex, guiza, semih, carlos, emre, kazim and deivid top players. the group is between us and fenerbahce, i jst wanna say kiev and porto not a problem.

  • memy

    we have 2 travel 2 hell in istanbul, thiswill b the hardest match of the group without a doubt!! fener are favourites off group

  • joseph

    i think the team who wins all of his home games should qualify because playing in istanbul or kiev is a very hard situation especially in istanbul they have mad fans they’re starting the support before the game and they don’t stop until the final whistle

  • Fo

    It’s going to be tough, but we can definitely win this group. Kiev will be the real test. If we can get out of there with a point or all three, we’ll be okay!

  • mambocambo

    i belive we can fly/ watch out for alex, guiza, semih, carlos, emre, kazim and david watch out for FENERBAHCE/ MIRACEL RUNNING BEHIND US

  • merve

    < ![CDATA[Is anyone travelling to Istanbul guys? Me and my mate are planning to fly out on the Monday and return on Weds but have never been there before. Does anyone know where we should meet up?
    I understand that Fenerbahce's ground is on the Asian side of town and it might be difficult to get a drink - any advice chaps?]]>
