Well we ain't in the Champions League anymore, that's for sure. We should be able to win this group with minimal effort. Let's hope that's the case.

What in the devil is this ??

It's the Tier 3 (Tiers are important these days) European Championship isn't it? for teams finishing 7-1oth in our case in the league, or something like that and to let the winners of the Lithuanian and runners up in Azerbaijanian leagues have a bash in the rest of Europe. The qualifying rounds will start in June, just before the leagues have actually finished, and it will take 3 and half years to complete, the winners will get a place in the Europa League qualifying rounds and an Amazon voucher. Personally I hope the final between Burnley Depression and Riga Nazi's, in Tallin on January 2nd 2025, is a great success.

Its not a fearful bunch is it! Still dont agree with losers being rewarded with a 2nd chance,still uefa`s grand plan failed cos Inter came bottom,after all its just about a parachute payment for whoever from the big 14 drop out.
Wonder if Poch will be at united by then????

I think (hope) he's managing abroad for a cpu[le of years, in Spain, France or Italy and then comes back to us when the pressure (silverware) is off. The hot property atm is Julian Nagelsmann at Leipzig. I went home and away to that last season and I love the way they play football, Ajax style of the olden days....

They hate Salzburg eh? ;)

Why didn't we all do this when Chelsea and then City 'bought' their success?
TBF wimbledon gave MK dons some shit 😭 A lot to admire about how ze german fans have kept some control of the football in the face of the money.

Dundork..... seriously how are these farmers in this competition?

I known thats arrogant but fuck me, teams of this standard devalue the competition.

Teams from the champions league are now in this competition. The elite level football. And they could (and on merit at this point of the competition) face any club side in the world.

If I'm getting this all wrong then happy for it to be pointed out and i dont know how to not make it sound arrogant and dismiss whatever Dundorks achievements may have been...

Arrogant ? No. Disrespectful on several levels ? Yes....and I'm not going to get in to why...
They're there because they qualified through their Domestic league and then were good enough to beat 3 teams over 2 legs to qualify. So good on them.

Bayern Munich? Cough
Think they are still 51% owned by supporters groups?but yeah its a one team league,and ultimately that do them in,cos its that which will make a euro league more likely.

I'm going to say something a little unpopular, maybe: I like the Europa League. I joke about Thursday trips to Transnistria or the Arctic Circle like everyone else, and the teams dropping down from the CL devalues it. But I honestly enjoy watching teams I don't normally get to see. There is some dross in the competition, but there's some entertaining football being played too. I was always annoyed when Redknapp would essentially dismiss it.

I wish it was straight knockout,would improve the format no end,and give the dundalks of the world a dogs chance in any round.Seeded groups are terrible for entertainment and IMO sporting chance,its a format for tv revenue for the entities that vote for it,and obviously uefa/fifa join in the cash feeding frenzy.
The only time I can think an underdog has beaten the seeded group protection to win was greece 16 years ago.They not only had to beat the teams but a system set up against them.

Whisper it quietly I also like the league cup.Too much trophy snobbery in football,3 domestic trophies some get the chance in europe and people want to bin one of the domestic cups because "its beneath them".I would play europa all day rather than not be in a european competition.

Knockout play throughout, like they used to be, would make it a much better competition, and alleviate some of the legitimate concerns about fixture pileups.

Another reason I like these competitions is that it gives us a chance to watch our own players we don't see very often, especially the younger boys. Still remember seeing a young Harry Kane in the EL against Hearts and (I have to admit) thinking he didn't look remotely good enough.

Ironically, it took a German to lead them in beating the system.

same reason I think the league cup has a place,chance for the other 14 to play and induct kids to the squad.
