I have a distant family link to one of Dundalk FC legends, Jimmy Hasty.

Would be a perfect draw.

Not too unhappy about that fact, now we just gotta draw Young Boys. Rostov is a big unknown, though their team actually ain't that bad. Steaua would be just fine, Roma and Monaco can kindly play against someone else though.

The highlights from the Steaua match on reddit we're pretty good. one golazo, multiple near galazos including a free-kick bomb from the halfway line that hit the crossbar, an iffy offside-negated equalizer, and some very, very excited Romanians.

Plzen have a shot at Pot 3 if one of City/Porto/Villareal/Ajax lose.

In fact, Leicester-Basel-Plzen-Dundalk is a legit possible UEFA Champion's League group.

Draw starts in 5 mins.

Hate this time of year. Wish Rodgers had all the players in already that he wants.

Israeli league doesn't start until 20th August. That gives me a little hope.

I guess Platini's job is not all that bad, considering he managed to share a bit of money to those clubs

YOUR PLANE IS ON FIRE. This was just for the staff/plebs, the players got a plane that actually worked.

Also, Yaya hasn't travelled but is fit. I don't know if this is birthday cake related or not.

Re: UEFA Champions League 2016-17 feat. VARDY and HURRIKANE

According to market Steaua are really bad (city 1.1 to qualify; 1.55 to win away leg). Now I don't need to worry about coefficients anymore, guilt free support for the romanians and hopefully pep can join mou in europa although that could disrupt our own prospects in the only league worth winning these days - the best one.

Where do Celtic rank in your ratings? And the Israeli mob we play?
