The Europa League Thread

Hoffenheim kill the game off. 3-0.


#1283

#1284

GET IN TRAORÉ! Topo’s picks always come through. :raised_hands:


#1285

Disgusting.


#1286

Austria Wien pull one back. Too little, too late.
Very good win for Atalanta. Milan, instead :arteta:
3-1 Rijeka and game truly over.


#1287

ffs Östersund drew Athletic Bilbao 2-2 ! :rofl: A team that has won La Liga 8 times! And they had higher possession % and passing accuracy than Athletic, and were leading 2-1 until the 89th minute! these guys are insane lol Östersund didn’t even exist as a football club until 1996 :joy:


#1288

Watched the last 10 minutes of the Everton Lyon game. Lyon have so many good young players and they play exciting football. Can we buy a few more to go along with Lacazette???!

Also will Everton have a new manager for Sunday? Wouldn’t surprise me they look worse than us!


#1289

Not one Everton fan turns on that prick. Thats low and holding his child like that simply pathetic.


#1290

Anyone know how the seedlings for the round of 32 Europa league work ? I assume the 12 group winners are seeded, but what about the 8 CL drop outs ?


#1291

Hope not, as we need them to keep the current form :wenger:


#1292

Yeah the 12 group winners are all seeded and then the 4 best CL drop-outs - based on how they’ve done in their group I think, not UEFA ranking.


#1293

Weird isnt it looking that far forward after 3 games in europe. Im enjoying the ride for now.


#1294

Nah the group stage games are irrelevant for us now, I’m pessimistic and even I know we are topping the group :joy:. In saying that I will enjoy the final 3 group games knowing we are under no pressure.


#1295

I bet you will, exactly what part of yourself do you plan to hold against the ultras?


#1296

#1297

We can buy Ozil and Alexis’s replacements, then!


#1298

Haha, they couldn’t even afford me for £53,000 :grin:


#1299

We would have enough left for cash reserves as well.


#1300

We can’t be playing in this mess of a competition next season, but it’d be massive for the club to win a modern European trophy, I miss everything about the CL, especially the anthem :neutral_face:


#1301

You can hear the anthem every Champions League game week. As much as we’re a big loss to the competition, they haven’t stopped playing it out of respect for us :smile:
