The Prestigous Europa League thread 2018/2019


Rangers and Chelsea is the pairing the forum wants allright


Celtic, Salzburg, Leipzig, Rosenberg.

A whiff of Lutheranism about that draw.

We’ll have played Rosenberg six times in the last 18 months.

how underwhelming is that…


Olympiakos, AC Milan and Real Betis is a tough draw for FC91. With all the best will in the world, it’s hard to see us progressing any further.


Your man Will O’Callaghan on Newstalk sport said Chelsea had been drawn with Powk. I was wondering who the fuck he was on about :smiley:


That’s the correct pronunciation


Glasgow Rangers are utter utter dross based on the 15 minutes I have seen of their game . A chap Coulson looks a pub player .


is it not P-A-O-K… jesus I’d have made a holy show of myself if I was ever in Greece


Think it’s the centre back Connor Goldson. He looks shite alright, but Rob MacLean just said he’s been excellent this season. There’s another hammer thrower beside him called Worrell or something.


Ya , Goldson that’s him . Worrell looks like a bull in a china shop .


Hipster European football types like James Horncastle and Andy Brassell say Powk anyway. I’d say either is fine


How’s Cazorla looking? Big step up for Rangers in fairness


A bit heavy . Didn’t see much of the game , 20 mins at most .


Bordeaux 3/1 away to Slavia Prague tonight. Bordeaux a shambles in the French league apparently, and away from home but still 3/1 looks tasty





Sevco have equalised twice now. Villarreal were battering them at 1-0 but they scored on the break from their first attempt. Villarreal scored again almost immediately but Lafferty just finished a great team move.
