Big test for us in week one of the new season, Bayern team looks pretty formidable, hopefully we can get off to a flyer and get some early points on the board, not sure how we will line up or what formation to play, reckon Chris will set up defensively and look to pinch the points.
Barcelona Celtic looks a good game and with Celtics fitness a little low after their cup game Barca may sneak at least a point.
Santos I think will be too strong for Benfica, but I reckon Santos are a midfielder or two light in that squad, need at least one quality 30+ to challenge for the title, 1 or 2 injuries or suspensions in that department and they may be in trouble.
Sao Paulo v Ajax is a game that could swing either way, Ajax had a fantastic season on the league last season and they will be hoping to replicate that, Sao Paulo will be hoping to shake off the relegation favourites tag.
Marseille should sweep Hearts aside, but Hearts got some big results last season, I reckon this season will see more shocks.
Real Madrid at home to Osasuna should be three points for Garfy , but I reckon Osasuna have the beating of anyone this season and it wouldn't shock me to see Dillon's team take something from the game.
I just hope we get off to a flying start, would be nice to compete in this tough league, I reckon there will be many low scoring games this season.
Have to admit fearing the worst going into my first season ever in Elite league. But need to go with the nothing to lose attitude and stick to what saw us gain promotion. Could be a massive faux pas on my behalf but need to stick to the belief of we go toe to toe with all teams and see what happens.
But just want to say a massive good luck to all the managers this season.
ianmcnamara: Can't believe we're in this posision with two games to go. We just silently crept up on Everton and capitalized. If I end up taking up a new challange at the end of the season leaving Schalk with a title win would be the perfect way to end my time there.
