Pompey's uefa cup group opponents revealed!

The draw has been made for the group stages of the uefa cup and we now know that Pompey will be in the same group - group E - as AC Milan, Heerenveen, Braga and Wolfsburg.

We just have to wait for confirmation of fixtures, which I think is later today and we can plan our European tours!

So, there we go fellas stay tuned for more info...

Well... Heerenveen and Wolfsburg sound like the easier pair from that listing. The visit to San Siro will almost purely be about the glamour. A victory there would be nothing short of a miracle of an icing of the cake.

Wow, how glamerous is that chaps? Do the top 2 go through? You'll love the San Siro, I went when Chelsea made their CL debut a few years back and Wisey scored a famous equaliser, now THAT is what European football is all about! Good luck, hope you win the whole thing (and don't worry about Milan, Kaka's not all that!!!)!

I'm not convinced Matt is correct either Rug.. otherwise we would have known up from that Pot A where to play at home... I'l wait and see although as Lysimachus says Heerenveen and Wolfsburg sound like the easier pair and all we have to do is win the home games to qualify..

The draw for the games does not take place until a little later on. It should be announced about half 12. Good group though and our chance to see Ronaldinhio take on Belhadj.

Look you can apologise later. Pompey are going ti the San Siro to tkae on six times European Champions AC Milan. They have Ronaldinhio, Kaka, Shevshenko & Guattso to name a few, sod the spelling, you know who they are. Braga is not from where we have just from & ironiically they drew 0-0 at Guimaraes on Sunday. Wolfsburg are a good mid table german side & the dutch side Heerenveen stuffed Ajax 5-2 at the weekend, so not at easy as we think. 2 wins should enough to get us through but it's party time in Milan.

Bugger the BBC & Setana both said we are going to Milan & now they have backtracked with with we are playing Milan. So many reasons to play them away, to be there for one & it means we have another tricky game away where we may have to pick up points. Bugger, so wanted Milan away.

Yeah me too Matt and I think we have a tough draw now as we have the better teams at Home ... Still a win in Braga and then beat Milan at Fratton and job done.

I am glad for Milan at home. It is the chance to see some of the worlds greatest players play at Fratton Park. I doubt Kaka and Ron will like the ground much. As I only wanted Pompey to reach the group stage I will not get upset at the thought of us going out. If we play well and give it our all I will be more than happy!

I am absoloutely made up, ecstatic that it's Milan at home. I can take my wife and sons to watch them with our mates that we sit with every week at Fratton. Guimaraes was my only european venture, too much to affors any more, so Milan at Fratton, thank you fotball god!

Braga looks a lovely city, the 'Rome of Portugal'. Wolfsburg looks a right dump, close to what was East Germany. Can't we please swap with Milan as originally stated.

Yep, sadly Chix you are right. Groundhog day in Portugal & the bleedin' goose steppers instead of Milan.

We must be realistic. We play in the premier league we have beaten Liverpool and Man Utd in recent seasons and they have been or are European champions! We can beat every team in this group and they will fear us more. We are new to this game and will find AC Milan very tough but we should win the other three!

AC Milan at Fratton Park. Just let that sink in. AC MILAN AT FRATTON PARK. I tell you what - I really fancy our chances.
