Post by: KoemansNumberTens on August 25, 2017, 04:30:42 AM
Very little to fear. I'd say it's quite likely we'll be the best side in our group and would take a dreadful draw for us not to be 1 of the best 2

Weird seeing Arsenal in it. There are some tough teams in the 1st pot as expected but pot 3 & 4 have little to be worried about. Looking forward to the draw.
Title: Re: Europa League Group Stage Draw

Salzburg
Cologne
Vittesse.
Nice short easy flights. Not going to affect preparations for the games on Sunday.

The thing I'm happiest about though is that hertha are in the same pot as us. I had a feeling that we would draw them and the away game would be around the time my baby is due. Would have been gutted.

You messing? Milan is a fucking dump of a city. Rotten, miserable, working city.
The surrounding area is astonishing, i spent a few weeks touring around it and the lakes. But Milan city itself is balls.

There are some tough teams in the 1st pot as expected but pot 3 & 4 have little to be worried about. Looking forward to the draw.
This is my feeling. Couple of pot 1 teams i wouldn't fancy. But two go through and we'd have to be proper unlucky to find 3 teams that we'd struggle to get 3 or 4 points off in that draw.

You could have some seriously tough away days in the same group. Zenit, Partizan and Istanbul would be horrendous.

I would love to see us get AC Milan, and then a couple of nothing teams in the 3rd/4th seed to get through.

How do you go about getting tickets for an away match if you're not a STH?

I'd love to go - we always say about dusting off the passport but I never know how to get a ticket!
Title: Re: Europa League Group Stage Draw
Post by: WeimaranerBlues on August 25, 2017, 04:09:59 PM
main thing we don't want is long distance travelling...........Possibly better to have a high profile team from Pot 1 , to get us used to facing someone better in the latter rounds, Nothing worse than facing 3 easy teams then getting paired with a CL drop out in the knockout stage.      Only advantage of playing easy teams on paper is letting the full squad get some rest / game time between the League games.


bring it on Guys

Post by: MrWhite on August 25, 2017, 05:01:46 PM
Nuts how there's 5 English teams in the Champions League and only two in Europa.

The rules only allow 7 in total from any one association, so what should have been our 2nd group stage slot went to Fastav Zln for winning the Czech Cup. Since Arsenal had already obtained that through their league position, I never quite understood why we didn't get that group slot and it be our league's qualifying 3rd round slot that was given to another league..

On the other hand our extra time to gel and get some sharpness may work to our benefit..

Milan and hoffenheim is the nightmare scenario.

Don't mind one of those but not both, being us though that's what we'll probably get!

Would have to play our best 11 in those 4 so could cock up our league plans

Fingers crossed for a 'fair' draw

Happy with that, fancy us at home against Atalanta and Lyon and think we are good enough to nick results there as well. You'd hope we would beat the Cypriot team home and away.

Confident of qualifying, tough group, could have been worse, but could have been much better. Some nice trips in there though.

Hopefully that was just a fluke season From Atalanta and Kessie has gone now hasn't he?

No idea what the other side are like but I think they knocked out Aberdeen in qualifying. Not sure what that tells us!

@hill135 (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=3741) to provide update on Atalanta but I think they've lost a few players?

Lyon isn't easy as they're a consistent side who is used to playing in Europe with the prospect of a final in their home ground.

Appollon only just beat Aberdeen.

They were the suprise package last season, but they have lost two of thier best players in Franck Kessie and Andrea Conti to AC Milan this summer.

They replaced Kessie with Marten de Roon from Middlesbourough which might give you an idea of their standard.

Christ yeah they did really well, still think they'll be a challenge though.

Would have preferred to have fixtures where we could rest some of the starters as it may tell later on in the season but nevermind, it's a good challenge

Yeah, Lyon have some decent players as you'd expect. But if you take a look at their squad there isn't anything in there to really fear now Lacazette has gone. It will still be tough, but I think we have the best squad of the four teams in our group.
Title: Re: Europa League Group Stage Draw

Should be going through though. Would still put us as likely favourites to win the group but will be close with Lyon.
Title: Re: Europa League Group Stage Draw
Post by: Sir Stealth on August 25, 2017, 07:02:33 PM
Not too many players I recognise in that Atalanta squad, De Roon and Cornelius are 2 ex prem players I recognise

Lyon have got a pretty good squad by the looks of things. Hopefully Koeman knows how to stop his fellow countryman Depay. We also get to see what we could have had in Ferland Mendy who we were linked with if I remember correctly

I still expect 3 wins at Goodison, that along with 1 away win and 2 draws would be enough to see us through I assume. Would be nice to go through as group winners

Since I don't know the exact dates I've just booked 1 night for every date in Lyon , free  cancellation.

Apparently the Atalanta game won't be played at their home ground, waiting to see what happens with that

Saw Atalanta a few times last season and they were worthy of their league position. I think they went 10 games unbeaten or something, which was a club record, and only lost it to Juventus.

Managed by Gasperini who has a habit of bossing it for one season at a time for some reason.

From what I've seen they play only one way which is fairly fluid possession football in a 3-4-3 and they're quite good to watch. They're unpredictable, however and can win games they aren't expected to and lose those they are.

They may come crashing back down to earth this season though cos they've sold all their best players and some of which are still there had the seasons of their lives which they might not repeat. They're one of those teams won't ever consistently be good because their XI is drastically different every year. They have the best academy in Italy but little inclination to hold on to their homegrown talents.

I reckon we're better them and 4 points from two games would be just fine

Not a common destination.

Flights have stopped from Manchester till next year.
Flying from London is 58 on a random September Thursday (double or teble that when the dates for the match are announced though)
Hotels around 80 for 2 as well  (again, may go up).


If you could drive you can get an overnight chunnel for 46. Take between 12 & 18 hours though

Train is (getting in at 4 on a Thursday, leaving at 2 on the Friday) is 190

Doesn't cover any cup games, but you should be able to grab one or two for these games if you're quick. 

Anyway, happy enough with the group...  could be a little testing in Italy and France, but expect us to get through it without too much hassle... 
just wish I could do all the away days, but not a chance as it stands for me.  Cyprus is a hope.  And then hopefully more to come.  Sort of hoping Sevilla drop in and we get them as I have family not too far from there!

I think @Gash (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=14) got an executive one for one of the earlier games as the normal seats had sold out. Im sure it wasn't massively more than a normal ticket price either?

Aye, it was the Park End suite. 36 for a seat, pie, programme and team sheet. Oh and you can get a bevvy as well. :)

I can't remember if normal tickets were available to Everton Members on a priority? We bought the hospitality ticket as we thought the game might sell out before it went on general sale due to a lot of the main stand being closed.

The prices might go up a touch for the group stages, but as a non-STH myself have had no problem getting a good choice of good seats in gen sales for Europa games so far.  Need to get on them early though.

Definitely says on my reservation confirmation the M&S meals available to buy, this replaces complimentary snacks, anyway 90 odd minute flight who cares.

Think I'm going to book from Gatwick or Stansted for the Cyprus trip.  Flights only 100 return.

Not sure about getting a ticket for this one, only seats 20,000, we might not get more than 2,000 tickets
and only have ST plus 2 aways.

I'm not gonna get one in my own name, but I'll end up getting one from one of a few people. I already know a couple that can't go because it's too close to Xmas.

Some of the hotels are sound. Only going to be about 19 degrees but be a nice little winter getaway anyway.

Edit: 19 degrees might be pushing it :)

See Limassol aren't the whipping boys we thought they might be.

Atalanta +3 4pts
Lyon 0 2pts
Limassol 0 2pts
Everton -3 1pt

The plus side is that after two matches, only one team has won so it could be a relatively low points total to get through.

Lyon are a better side than us.

Can't say I've watched much of them.

Most French teams don't seem to live up to their reputations though.

They've drawn against Limassol and at home to Atalanta so will be four points down on what they expected whereas we're probably three points down?

I honestly don't want us to go through, bizzare thing to say I know, but I dread to think what will happen when we play a half decent side, possibly another Benfica situation

I know what you mean. I feel a bit weird about it.... we are in such a mess that part of me wants out of it so we can just concentrate on the league..... on the other hand some miracle might happen so I've just reserved my seat for the Lyon game :)

Have had a non refundable flight and hotel booked to Lyon since the draw, knowing now that I will be travelling for what will be a dead rubber by then is bloody depressing.

Beat Lyon at home and it's hardly a dead rubber is it? We've got as good a chance as them of getting through. There are 4 games left to play.

Worth noting plenty of teams have gone through with 8 points or less. I can see us picking up at least 7 points from the 4 games we have left.

Liverpool didn't win until the fourth group game in 2015/16, ended up topping the group and ultimately getting to the final. I'm not saying we're definitely going to get through but calling the fourth group game a dead rubber is a bit pessimistic. We're not in the ideal position but far from out of it.
