OK, this is my 100th post.  It was going to be a grandoise list of things that I like and reasons, but I got to 34 and ran out of ideas, so instaed, I will write about the European Draw. 

This morning Pompey were drawn with Dutch side Heerenveen, FC Braga from Portugal, Wolfsburg from the Bundesleague and AC Milan.  Its a bit of an odd set up, where the top 3 go through from the group and we play 2 teams at home, and 2 away. 

So first up for us is a trip to Portugal to play Braga, a few miles down the road from our rivals in the last round Vitoria Guimerias.  Should be an interesting night as they are now higher in the league than Vitoria.  Nostradamus Spex says Draw

Next up for us, on a hopefully wet and rainy night at Fratton Park is AC Milan, I can’t imagine Kaka being up for that kind of evening.  Nostradamus Spex says Draw

Wolfsburg away, thats a tricky one, the Bundesleague has been a bit mixed this season with most of the big teams struggling,  I reckon we might stand a good chance here. Nostradamus Spex says Away Win.

Heerenveen have just beaten Ajax 5-1, which could be a good indicator for Aston Villa who have them in the groupstage, but not for us.  They are supposed to be a good team, but I believe we can take them at home.  Nostradamus Spex says Home win.

OK, I am usually terrible at predictions, but I think we will get through the group and into the knockout stages, I think that we will be there with AC Milan and Wolfsburg, but I could be wrong, and probably will be.

By the way, I may finish the list at some point, but I probably won’t.
