Champions League 3rd round qual. tonight - effects on our EL groups and ranking.
3rd round qualifying

Losers enter either the Europa League group stage with us or the playoff round (on stage before) depending on which path they are in.

Lots of big co-efficients so could pus

Benfica winning away - good or bad?

When I worked in Lisbon, my office was overlooking the stadium while it was being rebuilt.

American consultancy and not a single other person there was the slightest bit interested in football. The only person remotely interested was the young South African receptionist who arranged a tour for me (that I was unable to go on due to work commitments).

Nice trip to Monaco or Lisbon would be lovely.

I saw England v France at the stadium of light - best stadium i've ever been i reckon.

Celtic might beat Jablonec, but no way they're beating AZ Alkmaar in the following round.

I want Celtic to lose, a possible jaunt to Czecho or Holland appeals far more than a trip to Glasgow.

I will take Celtic, they continue to look rough even in their league.

Definitely want Benfica to lose as I'd much rather play them than go to Moscow.

Benfica at the proper Stadium of Light would be right up there for me.

Fair enough.

Just could make our group tougher and there will be some tough teams in there already.

I would take some non-glamour ties in the group if that means we get further, where there are bound to be some teams we have heard of. Especially since more Champions League teams enter after the group stage.


Also teams like Sparta Praha and Spartak Moscow "should" lose and they have co-efficients below us.

So if you want to watch some football tonight and are going West Ham strategic - hope for favourites to win ie. teams like Monaco, Midtjylland, Shakhtar Donetsk and Benfica (tomorrow)


Personally I hope those bigger teams lose.... I'd rather have as many teams in the EL that I've actually heard of than teams from leagues and places I've never heard of..

Mildly on topic seen as they do the CL games, but it looks like Aluko has found a job with BT Sport as a pundit.

Unbelievable she's able to keep stealing a living from various broadcasters. There are so many women available who could do a much better job. I think any random woman who has never even watched a football match before would do a much better job.

Purely selfish but you lot would get a fair bit of joy from it, as well, I would guess.

Either team Spurs will face in the CONFERENCE league has a Canadian on it.

Double satisfaction if they somehow get knocked out in their first foray into that competition.

Twitter made Garth Crooks the head of the BBC. Cos, y'know....

I have noticed that the BBC are using every excuse they can find to name-drop Tottenham into any discussion on European football, no matter how tenuous the link.

Big co-efficients coming down could push us from Pot 3 to Pot 4 for our draw.

So if you want to watch some football tonight and are going West Ham strategic - hope for favourites to win

ie. teams like Monaco, Midtjylland, Shakhtar Donetsk and Benfica (tomorrow)

When's the Europa draw? I'm looking forward to seeing which teams we'll pit our wafer thin squad against.
