Europa League '16/'17


  • Can't have a Champions League topic and not have a Europa League topic :stuck_out_tongue: :soccer: We finally have a different winner, Sevilla seems to go trough the group stage of the CL

    All groups and standings can be found here: http://www.uefa.com/uefaeuropaleague/season=2017/standings/index.html

    My favourites:
    Zenit, Shakhtar Dontetsk, Villareal, Athletic Club & AS Roma

    Outsiders:
    United, Fenerbahce, Ajax, Schalke & Fiorentina

    Besides the clubs who got kicked out of CL and join the EL.


  • I think AS Roma will win. They have the best squad anyway.

    Then there is Man United, with the most expensive squad but still can't beat Feyenoord or Fenerbahçe. :laughing:


  • @Sjinne_4_ever_NL I suppose we (ons aller ajax) can get far this year, If Bosz has the guts to play with Nouri-Dolberg-Cerny. Lets await the CL dropouts before predicting a winner.


  • @King-Noel 90% of the posts in the Dutch PL topic are making fun of United xD let's see which ridiciously overpriced players they are going to buy this winter in order to finish top 4.


  • @SIRclitjeslikker_NL Well, I just hope they don't buy anymore. I mean they bought one of Dortmund stars and he's just spending most of his time on the bench :| Better try and get this squad back on track, different line-up & tactics... they have some incredible players.

    And about Ajax... well we just lack luck every year so I hope this year we will have some luck and get far in the tournament. We kind of need it as a nation :soccer:


  • @SIRclitjeslikker_NL LOL, well they deserve it. :laughing:

    If you get eliminated five years in a row...is that a lack of luck or a lack of quality? I blame Frankie! Remember Boekarest away about four years ago. We beat them with 2-0 at home and de Boer chose the wrong tactic in the away game. A 3-0 loss if I remember correctly. Now with Peter Bosz and talents like Dolberg, Ziyech and Sanchez I am more confident that we can get far this year. At least we qualified ourselves for the knock-out already, that's a start!


  • @san-pascal_NL

    It was a 2-0 loss and then a loss in the penalty shoot-out :P

    Most ridiculous lack of mentality I have ever seen though. We overclassed them at home, and then everyone was talking in front of the cam like '' ah well, if we just score a goal there they have to make 4, no worries.''


  • Well, I was also referring to the CL in recent years (Zagreb, Madrid & Milan for instance). But in the EL they played some terrible games against opponents that could have been defeaten, true ;) But mostly bad luck in my opinion as I remember that 40m shot goal from that defender of Steau...

  • We are Ajax we are the best :first_place:


  • My favourite is Shakhtar Donetsk...I hope they can win it. I like them and Donetsk not only becasue footbal, but also because politics, history and other stuff but that's not important right now... :)

    Yes Man Utd played bad in first matches but it's obviously Mourinho realised it will be almost impossible to qualify for the CL next year via the PL so he will try to win the EL.
    In 1st match away vs strong Feyenoord Man Utd played with a crap squad, and in the last match vs Zorya Ibrahimovic and other are playing 90 min. wtf?

    I also like Zenit. :)
