I personally didn't like the remark. The club went on an amazing run to finish 7th and qualify for Europe after a big gap to 2010.

I'm not sure what he meant exactly but it didn't sound like he was in awe of how we'd be if we made CL or anything like that.

I think it's understandable from a players POV. None of them grew up dreaming of playing in the Conference League after all. But the fans being excited about the chance of a few trips away, and midweek games against teams from far flung places, and Edinburgh, isn't something that players should make light of.

As I said though, whatever his attitude was I'm sure he wishes he was part of it now.

After saying it he's told by, I think, Ezri to shut up and have some respect and is called a twat.

And none of us dreamt of watching us get knocked out of FA Cups by Stevenage. It was a huge step forward for the club and a stupid remark by a kid. Hope he knows better now.

Yeah, it was Ezri.

It was a new competition last season and the scenes from seeing West Ham win it (which happened after Ramsey said what he said, however he meant it), changed a lot of people's minds about it. It just so happens that by the end of our run, we'll have played some good sides and some well known clubs. The conference league (a name which probably contributed to a low opinion of it), will probably now just be grouped together with the other European competitions.

Olympiakos have beaten Arsenal twice in their last 4 games against them. Definitely not mugs. We're 4th in the Premier League and have been given a game by all of our opponents but Hibs. Fans attempting to knock this competition would have fallen by the wayside rounds ago.

I'm not having a go because I don't know what he actually said or why, but it looked like he was saying "it's only the Conference league".

Again, not having a pop, I'm just wondering if anyone's attitudes towards the tournament have changed this season, in and outside the club.

And obviously even if he did think it's a makey uppy competition, I'm sure it's killing him to be watching the scenes last night from home. We'll just have to do it all again next year.


"Makey uppy" ! Love it, Brian Kerr likes to use the phrase. Not sure if British people do.

Although you are going back almost 10 years when Arse were not the big club it used to be. Yes they would scrape into the Champs league....

Recently they won one and lost one against Spam in the Europa.

I thought it was a perfectly common phrase. A bit like "giving out". Had no idea that was an Irish thing until a Scottish person asked me what it meant.

I know itís relatively little compared to the CL, but itís worth quite a bit in prize money, broadcast income and gate receipts. Loads more than winning a domestic trophy.

About £25m, all in. Which is about £20m more than either cup. Which explains the priorities.

Although Newcastle/Manure got more then that for playing 6 matches in the CL. And with it being 8 guaranteed matches and new deals next season, we could easily pull in £50mil even if we don't progress past the league stage.

With the change in format next season will clubs still drop down from CL to EL? Has anyone done the maths on that? Do CL "group" stage, and then drop down and win the Europa. Sounds like a plan!

There is no parachute down to the EL from next season.

Personally for next season, get the experience of money from the CL, go out in the league stage (either directly or after the play-off) then use the second half of the season to embed our qualification in the CL for the following season with less matches (barring a domestic trophy run). Hopefully then the team might have the experience for a title / CL run.
