    A place to discuss the events in UEFA land during the 2019-20 season.
    UEFA CL/EL games not involving Spurs, tournament draws, which UEFA officials have been
    arrested etc.

    The latest from our mate Bert ...

    https://kassiesa.home.xs4all.nl/bert/uefa/seedcl2019.html

    Spurs will be at worst in CL draw pot 2, regardless of the result of the final.


    This is how the club rankings stand from day 1 of the 2019-20 season :

    https://kassiesa.home.xs4all.nl/bert/uefa/data/method5/trank2020.html

    As you can see, a couple of steady seasons in the CL puts a club right up
    the rankings. It will probably take two more consecutive seasons of reaching
    the CL QFs for Spurs to reach the points tally that ensured the Goons got
    a draw pot 1 ranking regardless of how sh*te they were in the KO stages.

    Do we have bids for the UEFA and Europa cup finals yet? Expecting them to be held in Dubai and Mordor respectively.

    The Europa League actually has a fairly respectable venue for next season's final, which is in Poland:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stadion_Energa_Gdańsk
    An actual football stadium with a fairly unique look in a pretty central location for Europe's teams.
    Slightly small at 41,620 capacity, but a vast improvement on the much larger dump in Baku.

    Liverpool fans will think it's their year again in the Champions League, as the final's at the Shataturk in Istanbul:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atatürk_Olympic_Stadium
    76,761 capacity, but with a big ****ing running track around the pitch.

    More like "full of seasoned professional" dg, thinking his 'CL within 5 yrs'
    claim will come to pass (they will have spent N seasons acclimatising to
    that stadium) .

    There's a 50/50 chance we'd be in pot one if we had a ref who could tell his motherfucking armpit from his motherfucking elbow...

    In other words, if you're stuck in Europa League purgatory, don't have a passenger taking home £350k a week in your team

    Wolves 2-0 up in their EL qualifier tie.
    Should be ok to get the necessary result in the away leg.

    The third qualifying round for the CL is throwing up some unexpected scorelines right now
    In Amsterdam, Ajax are drawing 1-1 at half time with PAOK and 3-3 on aggregate
    In Kyiv there's a mad game between Dynamo and Brugge going on, which is now 3-3 on the night with a stoppage time goal at each end plus two players sent off for two bookable offences while Brugge lead 4-3 on aggregate
    In Oporto, Porto are 2-0 down on the night and trailing 2-1 on aggregate to Krasnodar within fifteen minutes of the second leg kicking off
    In Glasgow, Celtic are 1-0 down on the night and 2-1 down on aggregate to Cluj

    On the plus side, Qarabag have been eliminated by Apoel Nicosia, so at least that's one hellish away trip avoided...
