#2814

What a ball it was too


#2815

What’s the deal for the Round of 32 draw ? From memory we can get the 12nd placed sides or the 4 CL drop outs with the lowest points tally’s ?


#2816

Yeah, the 12 group winners and the 4 best CL rejects are seeded.


#2817

We must win this. Still not over Atletico last season


#2818

The only real danger is Chelsea. Even the team who will drop from the Champions League won’t care.


#2819

Didn’t everyone say that about Atletico though ? They won’t care about Europa League :thinking:


#2820

Its only the English who think the Europa League is below them. Every other club in it wants to win it as it is a European trophy. Glad we have Unai as manager as he wants to win this


#2821

It’s bizare logic from the English considering English clubs rarely salute in the Champions League.


#2822

The Europa League should be below us because we’re the third most successful team in English football history. We have the third highest turnover in the league and the sixth highest in the world.

There is no way we should ever be championing this competition and it’s a sad state of affairs for the club that we are even in it to begin with. This isn’t the 90s where the UEFA Cup was a genuinely good competition to win because the Champions League wasn’t so saturated.

But because of how far we’ve fallen this competition has to be a priority for us this season unfortunately.


#2823

Still we are in it. It’s that every English club that plays in the EL thinks it’s beneath them.

There’s 6 clubs and only 4 CL places so two are gonna end up in it every season. No other country thinks like this.


#2824

Exactly. I’ll go back to giving no fucks about it when we get back into the CL.


#2825

I don’t give fucks about the CL when we aren’t in that tbh. Of course you only care about the one your team is in


#2826

Finally a trophy Spurs can win
