Looks like the money is finally starting to show in the PL. Superclubs like Chelsea and Arsenal in the EL is a bit grim

Yet nobody outside the top 6 apart from Newcastle can get past the qualifying stage in the last few years.
Think it will begin to be taken more seriously by those teams now. None of the teams competing for 7th now are managed by PFM’s

I hope so I can see Wolves taking it seriously next season if they qualify.

This the first time a nation's had 6 teams through the quarters in European comps? (Guessing there may have been a 3 + 3 sometime)
Spain will have done it in the last few years probably

Aye. Tired of it. Please God can we end their domination.

No rush.

:thup: 15/16; CL - Atletico, Barca, Real; EL - Bilbao, Sevilla, Villareal. Don't think it's been done with 4 in CL.
Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal: "From impending tragedy to near-triumph via the most improbable route possible - 95 minutes that neatly encapsulate 130 years of football on this particular piece of grass. Newcastle, United, will never be defeated."

It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses or the marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

Will say it a million times but Everton’s participation has been shocking. Was so p*ssed a couple years ago when Spurs threw the competion to focus on the PL title which Leicester had pretty much sewn up. Villa did the same about 10 years ago when they really had a shot.

This might sound stupid, but I wouldn't mind the 8th placed team in the Premier League getting an Europa League spot instead of teams through cup competitions.

9th placed team or cup winners in Europa League?

Top three in the CL. 4-7 have a playoff for the last spot. Losers in the EL would be interesting. Might have been kicked about a while back. Think now is the time to implement.

Hilarious if Villarreal end up winning the EL and get relegated in the same season. Play Polideportivo Ejido on Sunday, Bayern on Wednesday.

I like this idea even though it would never happen. I think the league format needs to change to make it more exciting.

Barcelona - Man United is a great prospect.

Spurs got City, Ajax got Juve, and Liverpool got Porto.

Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

City have underachieved and bottled it a lot in the CL.  Good chance to get to the final now.  I'd make them favourites over two legs against Juve, assuming they get past Ajax, of course. .

So I'm sure City will lose to Spurs now.

Drawing the SF before the QFs have been played in a non-bracket situation is vile.

I hope not.

I'm confident Barcelona will beat them like, in both ties. Suarez & Coutinho have that Liverpool/Manchester derby experience and Messi will dismantle that Man U defence.

I'll be expecting a Juventus Barcelona final now I think.

I hate them, but this totally neglects the fact they had a rancid group, beat Bayern and then may have to beat Barca and City to win it.
It's basically what gives us the upper hand even in times of crisis. "Cannit wait man, we're gonna batter them, hope it's 4 or 5 nil, fancy such and such for a hat trick, we're going got Europe, they're a yo-yo team" Then five minutes into the game "s***, why haven't we scored? They've had a shot! Why aren't we all over them? How come there are two teams in the game? f***, what if we don't win? f***s SAKE CLEAR IT SHOOT TACKLE HIM BOO! What if we lose, PANIC PANIC BRUCE MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHY DID HE MISS THAT SHOT, IS HE A MAG?! IT'S BECAUSE BRUCE IS A MAG! f*** OFF STEWARD ARE YOU A f***ing MAG? BET ALL THESE COPPERS ARE MAGS, AND THE MEDIA! THE REF'S A f***ing MAG! AM I A MAG?! Wait, blacked out for a second there. Ah, f***, we've lost again."

I don't trust any English team against Barcelona, they are all way too open tactically. I know Roma happened but in general over the last few years they've lost to teams who can slow Messi down and i don't trust any English team to do that.

The only team left who i can see doing that is Juventus, i haven't looked at the draw in detail as it pertains to the Semi's but the whole thing is smacking of Juve vs Barca.
