A very interesting draw for this year's competition, with two English teams being drawn in the same group (holders Liverpool and Chelsea in group G).
Elsewhere, Arsenal shouldn't be too troubled in their group with Ajax the only potential banana peel there. Manchester United should walk their group, and it looks like another season of European despair for Glasgow Rangers.
You couldn't have written a better scenario if you tried. First, Tiger Woods fires his long-time caddie Steve Williams a couple of weeks ago. A clearly upset Williams ("I stood by him for two years when nobody else would")
