The Europa League Thread


#1504

That’s a funny draw!


#1505

We don’t stand a fucking chance of winning this.


#1506

Time to take it seriosuly and not being arrogant with it, but Wenger…


#1507

Even if we take it seriously we won’t win it. Atletico have their shit together now, plus we will probably struggle against smaller teams.


#1508

I agree 100 % with this, but it still should be our no 1 priority.


#1509

That Swedish pub team will put us out


#1510

I do fear we are playing today’s team in Sweden. Not looking good.


#1511

We should play our strongest team in Europa, it’s our last shot


#1512

This is our strongest team :rofl:


#1513

We’ll have Ozil and Ramsey back for then


#1514

No Ozil and Koscielny, tbh.


#1515

Not much of a different. He’s shit now


#1516

I disagree. At least I don’t think it’s the best combination we could be playing with what we do have.


#1517

Lol! Our odds have collapsed. We aren’t favourites anymore :neutral_face:


#1518

Hilarious that they have us at 2nd favourites, I’d go with something closer to 5th or 6th. We should get used to those numbers.


#1519

Our odds didn’t collapse, as soon as Atletico were demoted from the CL they became favourites, we had the shortest price before they were in the mix.

Europa league is priced quite imperfectly but that’s normal given how unpredictable it is. They’ve just used club ranking for the most part.


#1520

Who are the 5 or 6 or rate above us? I seem to remember you putting us even lower in list of favourites recently, though that could be someone else and I’m mistaken.


#1521

I’d make Athletico Madrid, Napoli and Dortmund the standouts with the winner likely to come from them. Zenit seem a dangerous prospect, I’d put us in a secondary group with them, Lazio, Red Bull, Lyon, Atalanta, but certainly not head and shoulders above anyone in that group


#1522

BVB? Have you watched them lately?.


#1523

Napoli are focused on winning the league and Dortmund are awful.
