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.

    • I also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
