Arsenal: Personally I don't see it happening, the first 11 doesn't match up when compared with the likes of Barca, Inter etc, squad depth is also an issue, I can';t see them going past the Quarters

Barcelona: They're favourites for a reason, their first 11 is simply spectacular & they have decent depth too. Mascherano & Villa were tremendous signings and will both play a crucial role

Bayern: When Robben is fit, they can take anyone, he's simply an amazing player. They also have the likes of Ribery & Muller, both of whom can be matchwinners on their day. I wouldn't have Bayern as favourites, but they do have a chance. I expect them to be Quarter/Semi Finalists

Chelsea: This could be Chelsea's last chance at winning the Champions League - Lampard, Terry, Drogba & co are all well into their 30's, that said, they're still well able to compete with the very best. I think that the CL will be a priority for Chelsea this year, I won't be suprised to see them resting players in league games for midweek European games, for that reason I see Man Utd winning the league again this year. Chelsea can beat anyone in this, and are right at the top of my list of possible winners

Inter: The defending Champions have basically the same squad as last year(minus Balotelli), Rafa has come in for Jose & we all know he considers himself a bit of a Champions League specialist. Usually I don't give anyone a chance of winning back to back titles, but it's a real possibility for Inter this year...

Man Utd: Strong first 11, great squad depth, the greatest manager of all time. Always a contender, although personally I don't see them doing it this year

Milan: Same team as last year, but with the addition of Ibrahmovic & a new manager. Their attack is very impressive, and they have a pair of world class centre backs, but I can see their fullbacks/ageing midfield costing them again this year

Real Madrid: Their biggest signing of the summer was Jose, he has brought in a number of new players, but don't forget that Real haven't been past the Last 16 in a long time

And Robinho :cop:

I see it being between United, Chelsea and Barca this year. You have to go with Barca though with the first 11 they've got although United and Chelsea can both beat them on their day.

Real Madrid this year given the match winners they possess, coupled with the best tactician in the game with Mourinho, I reckon they'll do it in all fairness.

Barca have started like a house on fire, absolutely trouncing Panathinaikos 5-1
Messi scored two, he should have had a hattrick but missed a penalty. He recovered by assisting for two goals, including this gem from Dani Alves

At only 23, he's already won several La Liga Titles, as well as two CL's, scoring in the 2009 final. He got 47 goals last year, and I wouldn't put it past him to top that this year. People won't say it now because of his age, but in about two years, he's going to be recognised as the GOAT:hail:

I think that Chelski or Man U are due for a CL win. Barca is the obvious choice. I'd put money on them, but to be contrarian, Chelski.
