Yeah Rosenborg not even good. It wasn't undeserved though, Ajax defense was pure shambles. First time since 65 without European football (apart from a one year ban in ~91). LOTS OF MONEY ON THE BANK THOUGH YAY

Re: UEFA Europa League 2017-18 - featuring Arsenal FC!

OMG ARSENAL!!! Really hoping away at Arsenal isn't on the 15th of September, I am ready for all the other dates.

Any survival tips for Belgrade? And also how big is the away team's ticket contingent usually?

Can I hope to buy from Arsenal directly? No, right? So will I have to pay 4x face value?

Who cares.

LONDON HERE WE COME **** YEAH!

Sold two (arguably) best players. Replace them with who? Get rid of successful manager, replace with? Not sure what's going on there.

Re: UEFA Europa League 2017-18 - featuring Arsenal FC!

Apparently (hearsay) Belgrade have an average attendance of 8,300 for league games. And a stadium capacity of over 56,000. There should be a possibllity of an overly large away section, please...

@Ra_Z
Yeah, it's a mess. But it's not surprising. Last year was the same thing where it was obvious the team wasn't quite good enough and specifically needed someone like Ziyech, they tried to get him cheap but it didn't work out.

Then they lose CL qualifiers, lose a lot of points in the first Eredivise month (and as a result ultimately the title) and then they still spent a lot on him, probably even more than they would have had to before, without increasing their win% for CL qualifiers and those league games.

Getting to Belarus would be really expensive unfortunately.

Belgrade is a must and would love to go to Köln. Hoping it wont be too expensive.

There will be plenty of space for away/home and dare i say neutral fans as well.

This will be such an epic party*

where are you at? Lots of cheap flights to/from Cologne, and the city isn't overly expensive.

You should be able to get 100-200€ flights and airbnb for around 50€.

Wouldnt sit with Delije if someone paid me to do it. They often fight amongst themselves. Neutral section should not be a problem though

There's cheap flights between London (one of the strange loloutside airports though) and Dortmund airport which would be another 1.5 or so h by train to Cologne. There's obviously also London->Düsseldorf...train ride from DD-airport to Cologne is very short so see if you get that connection first imo.
Could also just take the train London->Cologne...shouldn't be superlong...Eurostar/ICE or Thalys in there is like 5h iirc

you realize Cologne has an airport. right? fly STN-CGN and back for 50€. But MF isn't from London, so that won't help him either^^

Man. Now it's pretty much Belgrade or nothing for me.

Bummer that they would put the Arsenal away game as the opener when I'm in the US... Well, I'll buy MindFckr a beer at the home game then.

Bate is quite the trip for a Thursday, tough to get vacation on such relatively short notice (I'm usually in Switzerland for work until thursday nights, and I'll have to check with my employer and the client :/).
