    Interesting...Man U should win whole thing but never look comfortable or convincing.

    I'd love Ajax to win it.

    I think it’s a bit shit the bad rap the Europa gets purely because utter c*nts from England decided their league was worth more than it…..

    The last few seasons it has been the likes of Liverpool, United, Vilareal, Lyon, Dortmund, Ajax, Sevilla and Napli competing at the arse end of – I am going to chuck it out and there and say that’s a pretty serious group of football teams.

    Could be an interesting first season for Jose. Community Shield, League Cup and potentially the Europa League. Got to put them as favourites.

    Celta Vigo have been the best team in it this year. Swept away every team they have played and also scoring alot into the bargain

    Celta are a good side. Whoever wins this tie will win it. Got to make Man Utd slight favourites.

    I wouldn't write off Lyon, they are performing well in this tournament. They beat Roma in the last 16 and then dominated Besiktas last night in a very hostile atmosphere; they should have won the game long before it went to penalties.

    Best result for us is if Ajax win it. We really need Man U to beat Celta.

    Celta Vigo aren't anywhere near a European place in La Liga

    Maybe something to do with that?

    Not sure I follow your reasoning here?

    Saint Etienne, Rostov, Anderlecht and now Celta Vigo in the knockout stages to get to a European Final, and not convincing in any of them really. Think most so called big teams would be have been happy with that draw.

    Zlatan winning the Europa League in Stockholm seems to be written.

    Because Ajax being 2nd in the league right now are the most likely to already qualify for the Champions League. Which leaves a space open in European competition for a Scottish team to enter in the 2nd EL round. That team could be us.

    Do you get a bigger trophy if you win it convincingly like?

    My understanding is if Ajax qualify for CL then the space left open is in CL not EL. That would benefit some team in the CL.
    A Scottish team benefits if a space becomes free in the EL. That would most possibly come from either Lyon or Man U winning it, assuming they qualify for EL. Ajax could drop into an EL place but that is very unlikely, they would need to drop a lot of points for PSV to catch them.

    Would be good seeing Ajax winning, always had a soft spot for them. Kasper Dolberg will be snapped up by Chelsea/Man City for big money in a year or two, potential superstar of a player.

    Of course not, but i was trying to put some context to the Mourinho winning comment. Liverpool to get to the final last year had to beat Man Utd, Dortmund & Villareal and play Sevilla in the final.

    Fair play if they do win it but it does seem a particularly weak competition this year.
