One thought on “UEFA Champions League Group Draw For Chelsea

  • Take yer ‘hard hat’ and ‘portaloo’ if you’re going to Marseille, can’t say I’m looking forward to re-visiting the warehouse!, nice city to visit though.

    Moscow!, no thanks, been there, got wet, and very expensive.

    Zilina, unknown to me, bit of a treck but new one to visit.
