European Seeding

One more (can't resist it...)

This beeb story reports that Chelsea are only to be amongst the second seeds for this year's Champions League, and goes on to say:

The Blues now face the possibility of facing reigning champions Barcelona who knocked them out of last season's competition at the first knockout phase.
They missed out on a top seed in that campaign ensuring a difficult clash against the Catalans.

In fact, I think nothing of the sort was ensured by the seeding: the reason they faced Barca was because they came second to Liverpool in the group. Hopefully the same will be true of this year's Premiership table...
