I notice we've been installed as 12/1 favourites with Skybet to win next season's tournament :oops: :lol: fuck me :lol: le bulbeye..Europe.. :oops: tactics.. :oops: :lol:
Surely they have the 12 and the 1 the wrong way round?! And obviously they then left a zero off the 12. :lol:

If i'm reading that right when you look at our coefficient that's bloody embarrassing that we're in a competition with clubs who have only slightly more than half and that's the best of them :banghead:

For anyone looking in with no knowledge other than the that figure they would think it should be a walk in the park for us, sadly i have the feeling it wont be :roll:

We 'should' win the EL by a mile. Not if The Old Fraud is still here though; ZERO European trophy wins in '40' years in football :banghead:

You are not taking into account the special circumstances Sean of erm, all those finals being held abroad, in different locations and stadiums it is not easy to find the level of consistency, but I must say if you list teams Alphbetically then we are constantly in the top few.

Don't care about being in the Europa, never going to win the CL, never going on a top level/top table shopping spree due to being in it, no more embarrassing maulings when we face a top side, cheaper season tickets, what's not to like?

If there's a new manager in place I'll go to the games, if not, not more midweek games and up at 4.30 for work the next day.

I can't wait for the qualifying rounds to start on June 29th! :barscarf: :barscarf: :barscarf:

I curse the fact we've qualified for the group stage! I quite fancied seeing The Old Fraud demeaning himself by managing against an Andorran or San Marinese pub side 8) I fucking pray we get drawn with a team from Kazakhstan! :mrgreen:
