Very strange results today
Everton losing again
Europa League entertainment > Champions League entertainment
Yeah,but that's down to lower quality of teams.Still,it's joy to watch.
We're playing with out B-Team with 17 Years old and winnig away against a former CL-Team and Everton can't win at home with their nearly best team against Limassol. A bit crazy.
But they'll probably thrash us when go over there in a few weeks
Good goal by Saint-Maxim.
Theo made team of the week as a RM
I’m not the one to wish for favorable draws but I seriously hope that Milan and Lyon are drawn against each other at some point before facing Arsenal.
From the CL teams that’ll drop down it is only Group H and to an extent Group C that can be a worry. Also, people need to calm down with the Bayern phobia. They’re not gonna finish below Celtic and Anderlecht in their Group.
This has been an abysmal showing from Everton. 5-1 at home
Unsworth deserves the job. Clearly unqualified for the job but he is English and that's all that matters.
Seriously impressed by Graham Potter and the work he has been doing with Östersunds FK. When he came to the club they were playing in the Swedish 4th division. Last season was their first in top flight and they then won the cup and qualified for european football. This season they've knocked out teams like Galatasaray, PAOK and Hertha Berlin and are challenging Bilbao for the first place in the group. All of this while playing fantastic football (some of the Bilbao players compared this team to Barca after being out played during the first leg). Great tactical flexibility as well.
Thanks, I'll have a look at this. I've actually been keeping an eye on this team for some years now but honestly never thought they would accomplish something like this.
Going by Uefa's site the teams entering the Europa will look like.
CSKA Moskva (RUS, 9pts)
Atlético Madrid (ESP, 7)
Leipzig (GER, 7)
Sporting CP (POR, 7)
Spartak Moskva (RUS, 6)
Napoli (ITA, 6)
Celtic (SCO, 3)
Dortmund (GER, 2)
So we can draw any of the non-seeded teams.
Depending on what team Napoli and Dortmund put out I wouldn’t be confident about the B team beating them.
I mean the British teams handled those runners up quite comfortably in the CL. If there's anything about us we should see them off handily.
They have no hope. Napoli could easily beat our first team if we don't give them the respect they deserve.
Another Özil masterclass v Ludogorets
