re there two FC Metalist Kharkiv (UKR) or has the dirty tuck fucked up again

A potential battle of the Shamrocks on the cards

Celtic should be favourites against all those clubs with the exception of Nacional. They played in the group stages last season having knocked out Zenit where they lost twice to Werder Bremen, beat Austria Vienna once, lost to Athletic Bilbao once and drew the other two.

They beat an Icelandic team in the first round this season and beat Hacken from Sweden 4-2 on aggregate in the last round. They’re made up of a load of Brazilians as is the case with a load of Portugese teams.

Apologies Chewy. Corrected now.

i am still seething with you and bandage after your responses on the excel thread yesterday. Very disappointed I got no credit for the magnificent concatenate function i used but ye had no problem sticking the boot in when i needed a bit of help

I don’t believe the correct usage of the concantenate function was the work of the same purpose who didn’t know how to paste special.

Believe it or not but I have never had the need to paste special before :frowning:

I believe that bit. I just choose not to believe you came up with the concantenate formula by yourself. That’s where I stand on it Chewy and I’m not moving.

Draw starts at 12.30 by the way.

why it is very straight forward
=CONCATENATE (A1, “/”, B1, “/”) and so on and so forth

Just joined the draw so not sure if Celtic or Shams have been drawn out yet.

Hearts vs Spurs
NK Maribor vs Rangers

FC Sion vs Celtic

Sion will be a tricky tie. The Swiss league is pretty strong at the minute. FC Thun knocked Palermo out last night.

Glad it’s not Nacional anyway. Could have been easier but if we can’t beat them we’d be brutal in the group stages anyway.
