  • The big question is whether you're going to be working out our prize money again?
  • I will endeavour to do so. 🧮
  • Just seen that Rice has received a two match UEFA ban for his comments about the ref, and Moyes has a one match ban. So our playoff will be completely without Dec, which is good.
  • Probably deserved more than two matches. Good rest for him.

    Good to be without your best player in European qualifiers? 🤔

    I know we should be able to progress without playing our strongest team, but, k'now, Astra Giurgiu.

    When I wrote it I was being sarcastic, but tone doesn’t always come across very well when it’s written

  • Wont Rice be a Chelsea player by then =)
  • He must need the rest, those pointless England matches have eaten into his and Bowens summer break.
  • The Competition kicks of tonight in Poland and Gibralta.
  • BT showing 30 minute highlights of every West Ham game in Europe last season from 12
  • Malta and Gibraltar

    Gzira Utd (Malta) v Atletic d'Escaldes (Andorra)
    St Joseph's (Gibraltar) v Larne (N Ireland)

    Somehow I don't think we'll be away to any of those

    Is that the lot who all play wearing clown gear 😁
  • Maybe a bit of a dumb question but why do we need to qualify rather than go straight into the group stage? Also have there been qualifiers already?
    Not really up on this stuff.

    The structure of the tournament is that there is a qualifying, then everyone goes into a playoff round, and the winners all qualify for group stage. Nobody qualifies directly for the groups, everyone has at least the playoff round
  • 👍Cheers mate.
  • Half the teams sound like anagrams!
  • We probably do to them though.😀
  • Vyborg or B36

    off to Denmark or the Faroe Islands
  • Viborg / B36 Torshavn

    Faroe Islands anyone, or Denmark?

    Worth noting that these teams will be well into their season by the time we play the first leg of our playoff; I suspect that it will be in the week commencing 15th Aug. We'll have played twice, Vyborg will have played 9 times.
