    Nope.

    UEFA have reformed their coefficient system, extending four guaranteed places to the top four ranked national associations, effective from the 2018/19 season.

    These 16 clubs are also now guaranteed to reach the group stage of the Champions League, meaning the Premier League side that finishes fourth will no longer enter the competition at the play-off round.

    And crucially it means the Premier League will no longer lose a spot should it fall behind Italy into fourth place in the coefficient ranking.

    Oh. Well if that's right there's no need to worry about the fourth place going.
    The draw will be interesting be good to get into the same group as Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern as I would like to see those World Class teams at Anfiejd and those great players they all have.
    My own ideal draw would be Bayern Munich pot one, Monaco pot two, ourselves in pot three and maybe an Anderlecht or Celtic in pot four, all pretty glamour ties..

    I would rather us get to play teams we have a good chance of beating and so progressing to the knock out stages. As good as some of the players are at madrid barca and Bayern, I can see them on tv as I have done many times previously.
    If football was meant to be played in the air, god would have put grass in the sky.

    Nope have to disagree with you there about playing Lessrer teams. I would rather have the chance to play Bayern PAG and Madrid at Anfield before being knocked out than losing and going out to your Basel, Porto and possibly Celtics of this world.
    I don't think it matters too much about easy draws as it's not as if we are going to win it so let's get decent teams and have a good occasion and memory while we are still in the competition...
    Let's be honest about it...the main objective will of been accomplished anyway which is appear in the champions league and make the profit for FSG...this afterall is what it's all about anyway nothing else...
