    I wonder how we'll approach tickets? Olympiakos and Red Star aren't big, glamour draws.

    1. Depends on what is at stake when those games come

    2. If lower turnout is expected, price the tickets lower and ensure the
    genuine supporters and not tourists etc get the tickets.

    Call it a night of tribute to Goran Bunjevcevic?

    The package deal that the club did for Wembley was suggested by the THST, but it was rejected.

    I wonder why Rangers left Defoe on the bench? Are they saving him for Celtic?

    Wolves won yesterday, to easily qualify for the EL group stages.

    Everyone else: Straight into the group. Wolves: Play six games to get there. Odd.

    Europa League Groups (the ones that we vaguely care about):

    Arsenal, Eintracht (shame they were good last year then sold half their team in the summer), Vitoria SC, Standard Liege.

    United, Astana, Partizan, AZ Alkmaaaaaar.

    Wolves, Besiktas (now armed to the teeth with GKN and Elneny. Flee for your lives), Braga, Slovan Bratislava.


    One to watch: FC91 Dudelange, currently 11th in the Luxembourg National Division. Yes, Luxembourg has a league. It contains 14 teams and there is almost no difference between a home game and an away one. Dudelange are so called 'FC91' because in 1991 it was decided that the town of just 18,000 residents couldn't sustain 3 professional football clubs, so all three of them merged into one and it swiftly became the most successful side in Luxmebourgian (not a word so what) history. They now play at the Stade Jos Nosbaum, which has a rocking capacity of 2,558. Fun times.

    I'd imagine 'Dudelange' is the Luxembourgish (is that a word) subtitle used for The Big Lebowski.

    Rangers and Celtic have more interesting groups. Gerrard will do well to get past Porto, Feyenoord and Young Boys.

    Just a reminder that Bayern tickets are on sale now for season ticket holders.
    It's a Category A game, while the other group games are Category C.

    Due to Red Star Belgrade being punished by UEFA, their fans won't be allowed to attend the match at our ground.
    That apparently means that we're going to take the full stadium allocation for ourselves, which is a bit of a strange one:

    Really could do with a good atmosphere for this, but I think it'll be an odd one under the circumstances.
    Didn't need another Saturday/Tuesday turnaround really, but they're both at home, so it shouldn't be an issue.

    Strange selection criteria.
    Foden and Fati have played a handful of games, while Donnarumma is getting up to 200, including 15 full international matches.
    Interesting to see a South Korean make the list, though. I wonder if we're keeping an eye on him?

    Remember to feign surprise when Vicinius Jr wins it by a landslide...
