    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

    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 :tup:

    That new Europa font is very lovely. Not so keen on the new theme song.

    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.

    Yep but the coefficients mean you'll still get better seeding than those lesser countries. :indiff:

    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.

    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.


    :yuck:
