Could do with a bump in our coefficient so we don't keep being put in pot 3.
Sod having it easy against Madrid I want to see them play their stars at Wembley and have no excuse for when we turn them over (plus I want to show Bale that he's still loved in case he ever comes back and gets to choose between us & Utd)
Don't think seeding is anything to do with it. You get the same points whoever you beat. Cyprus is up there for three reasons. One is that the points are calculated on the basis of average per club, so their total is only divided by 4 rather than 7. The second is that you get a lump of points just for playing in the group stage, which is far more important than results at this stage. The third is that they'll have picked up a load of points in qualifying for both tournaments before any of the English clubs bar Everton even started.
It's a viral pericardium infection, which is a lot less serious than it sounds. It's an infection causing inflammation in the membrane around the heart rather than an issue with the heart itself. To put it in perspective, the treatment is normally taking ibuprofen for a week or two. Obviously he'll have a load of checks to make sure everything's okay, but he could easily be back for the first match against us.
Looks like Madrid are having some sort of injury crisis at the moment. Navas, Asensio and Kroos could potentially be added to the list that already comprises of Marcelo, Kovacic, Hernandez, Bale and Carvajal.
