I was thinking of making one of these for the Europa League, but then I realized that no one really cares about EL football anyways...

 

 

Cool to see the final in Germany, should be a heck of a good stomping ground. Those guys are rabid fans of the sport.

I actually care about Europa. I watch every competition my club is involved in, so I've learned to enjoy it even when they aren't. I'd definitely participate in that thread.

Should be great.  Hopefully my boys can redeem themselves somewhat after choking on their home turf two years back.

I also watch Europa League.  It's on Thursday and it's like the only sport happening on Thursday.

I personally feel that teams that do not earn their league's automatic berths and have to go through a qualification to get in should be in Pot 4 (unless they were champs and their league has no automatic berth).

 

It could also make group stage a hell of a lot more interesting.

I agree. I have no idea why Arsenal keep being placed in top group.

Agreed.  Zenit in the second pot is curious as well.

It's to do with how successful your team is in the previous 4 years of European competition. That's why it's so difficult for teams like Man City to make an immediate impact in Europe. They always end up in the 4th pot until they can build up their coefficient points (built up by winning in Europe) to be one of the top seeds.

Qualification and Playoff stages are nearing the end and we are just over 3 weeks away from group stage draw. I'm really excited for Liverpool to be back in Champions League play. Anxious to see their group.

Yes it does, but fortunately I can watch at work. I just hate watching through a stream.

Good. fug 'em. We'll take a poo in the middle of their pitch after we beat them.
