Just listened to the Claret & Blue Podcast . If Seville finish 7th in the league , we may get bumped down into the unseeded pot. If , however, they win the Europa Cup final against Roma , we will stay in the seeded pot.I will be watching the final tomorrow now !

The only downside i can think of is, dont some of the games kick off at 5.45pm or something daft like that or was just teams who played in the arse end of nowhere?

Not sure if it's already been mentioned, but I think we also get a bye to the 3rd round of the League Cup next season.

That would certainly help us.

If we make the groups, some of the away games will be at that time. English teams at home generally get 8pm slot for TV audiences

Out of the La Liga teams in contention is it just Sevilla who can knock us out of the seedings by finishing 7th?

Sevilla seem to be one of five teams in La Liga who can realistically finish 7th with one game to go. If Osasuna, Bilbao or Girona match their result they can't come 7th, so I guess them coming 7th is pretty unlikely.

Same, I just want to know who to support in any given moment e.g. Sevilla tomorrow (and failing that, any of the other clubs going for seventh in Spain on the weekend). Don't show me the working, just give me the outcome.

When I looked at La Liga it seemed pretty unlikely Sevilla would get 7th. Also, all that seeding stuff makes assumptions on competitions that haven't been completed and the results of qualifying rounds that haven't even been drawn yet. So dare I say, it's a load of bollocks.

All supporting Sevilla in the Europa League Final then?

Like them anyway, after continually knocking Manure out and also Juventus this season.

Would be far from unhappy with either winning - however, if Roma do manage it, we'll have to hope one of the clubs 7th-10th in La Liga can get a win on the weekend.

The goalie was the main problem in those cup games have we ever won a game with him in nets ?
A strong second goalkeeper is essential

We need better back ups than the Augustinsons of this world, but I think that will sort it self out over the summer




He was a left back mate!

Yeah I know, but he still played in those cup games
And youíre not going to win football matches with competition winning players

Probably why we sent him home and bought Moreno then.

Exactly, nowhere near good enough
And youíre not gonna win cup games by playing people like that in them
