Europa League

Recommended Posts

It hasn't made much of a splash in the popular media, but worth noting Chelsea are charging £20 for adults, and just £5 for concessions to this year's Europe League games.

A parent can take 2 children for a total of £30. Great value, and there are some decent teams in that competition.

Really sensible from the club to try and make sure bums are on seats, and a great opportunity for parents who are priced out of it normally.

Group draw live now. Our group looks ok but maybe a bit "boring" - not like Fenerbache, Sporting Lisbon, Eintracht Frankfurt:

Chelsea - PAOK (Greece) - BATE Borisov (Tractor-factoryclub) - Mol Vidi (Hungarian)

What a terrible draw. Couldn't be any duller with no particularly good away trips

You'll have to use your "away-fund" on domestic cup trips instead :)

Was really looking forward to going somewhere easy, like Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, France.......... FFS

Understandable. Going on a traintrip to a muddy place in Merseyside for a Carabao cup game isn't excactly the same as going on a flighttrip to sunny Bordeaux or Marseilles.

But Greece isn't all that bad and Thessaloniki in Sep-Oct should be excellent:

Thessaloniki isn't that bad - only 100 quid from Ryanair, and there's a beach, and beer at €3.50.

Yeah I agree. Greece may be ok but I would have rathered Athens if going there. That said, such a group should allow us to play a second string side to give them minutes and concentrate on the league. For me, the regular First XI should be: 

Kepa 

Zappa Cristensen Cahill Emerson 

Drinkwater Cesc RLC 

Willian Giroud CHO

Arguements can be made for Ampadu playing ahead of Cahill and/or Drinkwater. While Moses could also play ahead of Willian as he is a vital part of the First XI. Kepa for me needs the minutes and experience in Europe so should play.

They have spectacular fans. I'll do my absolute best to make the trip to Greece.

Perhaps should clarify better........ dull from a football perspective. Don't know a single player who plays for any of the 3 teams we have drawn.

I also prefer trips where we drive into Europe via euro tunnel - hence hoping for Belgian, French, Dutch opponents.
