The Europa League Thread

If Bayern Munich come 3rd in the CL group this year i will just lose all hope :joy:


#1263

We don’t have an exciting bunch of youngsters for this to be relevant.


#1264

Haha and Amaury Bischoff and Fran Merida were?!

I think Nelson, Iwobi, AMN, Willock, Chambers, Holding etc. have potential and could be very good, and this gives them the opportunity to shine while also easing players like Wilshere back into the game and getting players like Walcott, Elneny, and Giroud minutes.

Win win for us imo. More so than the Champions League where we’d be too scared of losing so we’d be overplaying all of starters.


#1265

When we are gonna face Bayern who are getting knocked out from the Champions League :xhaka:


#1266

Zenit already up against Rosenborg.
Meanwhile, Astana beat Maccabi 4-0.
Balotelli puts Nice up against Lazio.
Very quick equalizer for Lazio. Caicedo.
Red Bull take the lead as well.


#1267

Luca, we don’t need the pointless updates. Anyone who is interested won’t be thinking “How shall I find out the Astana score? I know, I’ll check if that bloke on OA has posted it.”


#1268

Just ignore this thread :wink:


#1269

Nope :blush:


#1270

As expected, you do really hate me.

Now i am just focusing on our game :wink:


#1271

He’s got players in his team who were playing non league football pretty recently. Great achievement. We’ll take him :grin:


#1272

By the power of twitter he’ll be Rochdale manager in no time.


#1273

What a fucking great goal that was. Wilshere is sublime in this form.


#1274

That’s mightily impressive. That group has Bilbao and Hertha in it.


#1275

BATE, Steaua Bucarest, Red Bull, Lugano, Marseille, Lazio, Real Sociedad, Zenit and Zorya win. Bilbao and Vitesse draw, instead.


#1276

Atalanta have started well.
Penalty to Lyon! 1-0!
1-0 Atalanta with Ilicic. It was coming.
Zlin up as well.
Atalanta dominating the game atm. Almost 2-0 now.
Atalanta are wasting too many chances.
Lokomotiv Moscow up.
Young Boys and Slavia Prague also up, while Copenaghen draw.
Rijeka up against Austria Wien.
Braga down at home.
Villareal still shit, despite sacking the manager. 2-0 Slavia.
2-0 Rijeka as well and 1-1 Sheriff.
Dinamo Kyiv equalize.
Villereal pull one back and Young Boys score the second. Meanwhile, Atalanta haven’t scored the second yet, desping having many chances.


#1277

Probably need Neverton to win this. Koeman keeps his job for one more Sunday at least.

As crap as Wenger is (this sentence doesnt really need finishing) against Koeman, a struggling Arsenal will beat a struggling Neverton 9 times out of 10. A struggling Arsenal against a resurgent Everton under a new gaffer? Don’t fancy our chances


#1278

2-2 Dinamo.
1-0 Hoffenheim.


#1279

Given Wenger’s record away from home vs Koeman I don’t fancy our chances regardless sadly.


#1280

Christ! Atalanta got rightly punished for being so wasteful. 1-1.
2-0 Ludogorest and Hoffenheim.
Yes Petagna! 2-1!
Maybe game over. 3-1 Freuler.
1-1 Everton. Williams should be off.
YES! LYON!


#1281

Dirty Everton fan. Williams is nuts!

Williams should be off but just scored the equalizer
