Europa League draw

Happy enough with that. I'd much rather have our group than Manures certainly :D
Frankfurt is a nice place and the food is good. I'll definitely be eating a few sausages over there.
On a side note, how funny was it listening to Ashley Cole botching every teams name he pulled out :lol:
:shock:
Wow, you wouldn't have posted that 10 years ago.

Of course, with a no-deal Brexit it’s going to be a right pain getting to any away matches!! :cussing:

Can't complain, at least two good away days scheduled. Been planning to do a trip of Munich, Stuttgart and Nuremberg. Boom, Frankfurt not too far so this is excellent.

On this note, I'll say Ciao to Plzen, what the hell is this random ass kick off time.

So that the "global TV audience" can watch both this shit and the CL shit and buy merchandise. :censored:

don't they want anyone to watch ???

in the UK the match will be over before most people leave work.

in New York the kick off time will be just before 11am
in Beijing the kick off time will be just before 11pm

hardly much of a "global reach"


I am personally sick of the "dilution" of football fixtures.
it used to be far more interesting when a round of fixtures kicked off at the same time.
although you can in theory watch far more matches these days, i end up watching far less.

for example if a Chelsea CL match kicks off at 6pm then I won't watch it.
however if it kicked off at the same time as an Arsenal Europa league match, and I was watching in a pub then I would keep an eye on that one as well.
