Price of success unfortunately, we are box office now, millions want to tune in and watch us pass it from side to side for 90 minutes :whistle:

Yep, there are even some Spurs supporters among them.

And why would BT not pick our match for TV? They're trying to appeal to an audience not to Spurs fans.

We're a big club, people want to watch us win, most want us to lose, we need to get used to it.
Fair enough I take your point then I guess of the three possibilities I listed the appropriate one is they don't care.

Anyone feels kinda underwhelmed now that the draw had settled?

CL football is to play the big guns. We had the most enjoyable games in the last few CL seasons because we were always locking horns with them. Until the knockout stage, we only have BM to contend with. And that was even less exciting for me personally cos we played then in the pre season Audi Cup. That was nothing I know, but still, is like we had met jusy too recent.

Meeting PSG, Napoli, Valencia etc would make this season another to savour IMHO.

But hey, I was exclaiming 'Yes' when we drew Olympiacos and Red Star. :cautious:

So fucking hard to please.

Did you feel underwhelmed when we drew Monaco, Leverkusen & CSKA the other year?

Red Star beat Liverpool last year. Don’t take anything for granted.

I don't feel underwhelmed then. I was relieved. Because we were still quite new then.

Not taking any teams for granted. We always knew 'supposedly easy' teams in CL are always tricky. PSV last season was still considered a team to be reckoned with. Just wanna bring across the point of playing bigger teams.

But at least we always have new teams to take on in European nights.
