16.56….can you feel the excitement…??? No? That’s because these things normally take forever….

17.00….it’s being reported that Liverpool are attempting to bring in Jean Alain Boumsong before the transfer window closes…..maybe I should quit this and write a piece on that bizarre turn of events….? Almost as bizarre as say…ooh I dunno…Zat Knight getting arrested for drug possession hours before he was unveiled as an Aston Villa player……

17.05…..We’re watching highlights of last years final….oooh, lovely bit of skill from Kaka. Oh smashing, ‘club awards’. Rinaat Daaseav is a former Russian great goalkeeper. He’s also speaking Spanish. Blimey. Cech/Reina/Dida/…….and the winner is…..PETR CECH….Club goalkeeper of the year….and quite dashing in his suit…..

17.11…moments silence for Antonio Puerta….

17.13….explanation of the rules…..absolutely no idea what’s gonna happen. This could be completely rigged, no-one would have a clue because it’s a bit mind-boggling…..

17.17….first team out…..HOLDERS….AC MILAN….

17.21…Part 1 is over, thanks to Mr. Cech for helping out….Second award time, defender of the year….Ronald Koeman is on hand to present to….Paolo Maldini!! Fair play. These are clearly the handsome awards because Maldini is hot stuff….fortunately he doesn’t need assistance getting to the stage at the ripe old age of 39. Someone tell that man to retire….

17.27…POT 2….PSV out first…In with Inter who wont be impressed….the big ones, Valencia….Chelsea! Lovely. Jose will be pissed. Maldini drew Benfica for Milan, nice job Paolo…Roma?? Man Utd!! Rematch, beautiful!

17.36…Clarence Seedorf wins midfielder of the year. Four time winner with three different clubs. He’s asked what his secret is….claims its teamwork….we reckon its grass……

17.38….pot 3: Lazio, Celtic, Marseille…some tricky teams…who’s first?? Schalke 04…..

17.47…Kaka is forward of the year…who would’ve guessed that? Another handsome dan. Ok i’m gonna stop that now. Liverpool and Chelsea have the tougher draws so far from the four premiership teams….POT 4. Rangers, Besiktas, Olympiakos, Kiev, Fenerbache….tricky pot…who’s first??? Apparently Olympiakos because of all the rules and regulations, my guess is as good as yours….

17.56….that’s it!! Looks beautiful doesn’t it? Tricky groups galore! Groups C and E look saucy….Arsenal will probably be the happier of the English teams…..

18.04….Kaka is club footballer of the year 2007. Well deserved, what a player. AC will fancy their chances again having looked at their group. Celtic will believe they can grab second spot at least though…Rangers will find the going tougher with Barca, Lyon and Stuttgart….right, i’ve been doing this for long enough now. Happy reading!
