__________________________________________________________

The draw for the group stages of this year’s Champion League took place this evening in Monaco and Chelsea were drawn to play in Group ‘E’ alongside  Valencia, Bayer Leverkusen and KRC Genk.

Valencia we know all about the Mastella Stadium having been there a couple of times, great city that has had a revamp over the years and a nice return trip for Juan Mata!.

Bayer Leverkusen we know little about but, the Germans really know how to look after you so will be a decent enough trip and a nice return for Michael Ballack where the supporters can thank him for his time at Chelsea.

KRC Genk from Belgium are another unknown team but going by previous trips to Belgium there is a nice easy trip on Eurostar, or indeed, only two hours by car from Calais, just be mindful of the police though! they like their water cannons.

  1. I have no problem with the draw, but my problem is that we lovers of chelseafc are interested in seeing news faces at the bridge called stamford. We need a creative midfielder that can holed and control the ball at midfield. Players like luca modric, wesley sniegjer

    • Modric may still come, forget WS, he wants too much money (like Aquero!)
      And ‘Stamford’ has been there for years!
