Round of 16
Tough groups for Spurs and Celtic there..
I think Celtic has the toughest group. It be interesting if they can see off Fenerbahce who have been busy in the transfer market and Ajax of course.
Matchday One / 17 Sep 2015 / 19:00
Fenerbahçe SK - Molde FK
AFC Ajax - Celtic FC
FC Girondins de Bordeaux - Liverpool FC
FC Sion - FC Rubin Kazan
Gabala SC - PAOK FC
Borussia Dortmund - FC Krasnodar
A, G, H, J, L all look like good groups IMO.
Great game in Amsterdam so far, Celtic clinical, Ajax utilizing their total football style.
Good night for the Brits, Liverpool drew away to Bordeaux 1-1, Celtic got a good result away to Ajax drew 2-2 and Spurs had a fairly comfortable night at home to Qarabag winning 3-1, good night all round
Matchday 1 Results
A few shocking results. Fenerbahce, Sporting Lisbon, Villarreal, Rubin all losing.
That new Europa font is very lovely. Not so keen on the new theme song.
AZ beats Athletic de Bilbao 2-1.
Ajax draws against Molde, who?, Molde FK....
Celtic trying their best to make sure they wont qualify.
Doing a great job.
Tough match for Celtic but shock of the night goes to Marseille. Losing 1-0 to Liberec.
I see that the Belgian teams are just as misplaced in Europe as the Dutch teams.
Awful. Just awful for us low-lying swamp dwellers.
To be fair, Molde did beat Fenerbache 3-1 so I wasn't too surprised Ajax didn't beat them. Especially if Milik started. He doesn't seem to be impressing so far.
Wow! I didn't notice that match. I said Marseille losing to Liberec would be a shocker as they are potential winners of the tournament.
Yeah, I can appreciate that.
Those stats though
It looks like something of a game of FIFA.
Yep but the coefficients mean you'll still get better seeding than those lesser countries.
Just a matter of time. By the looks of it we'll have, if we're lucky, one team left in Europe after the winter break.
I don't think I've ever asked; who is your club team?
None. I don't watch the Eredivisie anymore. It's just appalling to look at. I only watch the European shenanigans because that used to bring out the best in our teams, but as of now that is also dwindling.
I mean, if you watch the average Champions League game, and how good that can be, how on earth can I watch that amateur level football of the Eredivisie.
I always think that the Eredivisie as a scouting home for the big clubs as for example Arsenal just bought a 16 year old from Ajax who is training with the first team now.
It was, ~ish. What did we have to show for lately. Memphis Depay. And that's it.
There was a time when players stayed until they were in their early 20's. But the money in England ****ed that all up. England is now the goal for most, not Germany, Spain or Italy. They rather choose a Newcastle United over top 10 team in any other competition because of the money.
I was surprised Wijlnaldum moved to Newcastle as he was voted Eredivisie player of the year last season and I would of thought he would move to a bigger team, but money really talks as some say. I can see Jetro Willems to follow suit into the Premiership soon.
Really poor night for the Brits, Spurs lost 2-1 to Anderlecht, Celtic lost 3-1 to Molde and Liverpool couldn't get past 10 men Rubin Kazan and drew 1-1.....
The British are doing very well in Europe this year.
Its been a bit better in the Champions league lately but crap tonight.
I was watching Fenerbahce v Ajax. What a dog of a game. Just awful. I think both sides had 1 shot on target, and the passing accuracy must have been 25% tops, for both teams.
Absolutely not worth watching.
Liverpool and Celtic just kicked off against Rubin Kazan and Molde respectively, Spurs play later...
