    Hope we have a proper crack at this. Final is in Stockholm and competition isn't as strong as it was last season.

    We're seeded for the round of 32 and can play one of the following:
    Olympiakos, Anderlecht, AZ Alkmaar, Astra Giurgiu, Celta Vigo, Gent, Krasnodar, PAOK, Hapoel Be'er Sheva, Villareal, Rostov, Borussia Monchengladbach, Legia Warsaw, Ludogorets Razgrad, Athletic Bilbao

    Hope we avoid the Russian. Other than that not too fussed.

    I've been to Anderlecht before and don't fancy another trip to West Germany so soon but still a couple of good aways there.

    Bolded the teams I'd realistically be able to get to for the away game, 8 out of the 15.

    We're going to get Astra though aren't we... months of jokes at West Ham's expense back in our faces if we lose! :laugh:

    I'm off to America in April so saving pennies for that.

    Hoping I can squeeze in a Euro away trip too so pretty much looking at the same ones you'd put in bold. Only exception would be Anderlecht which I'd give a miss.
    Been to Anderlecht's ground already and been to Brussels more than once so would gamble on us getting through and do the next one.

    If we get to the final, I will beg and beg for a couple of tickets. Live in Stockholm so would love to go with the missus.

    So Gent it is!

    Still not sure if I'm going which is not ideal given how quickly travel jumps up in price. Booking flights to the US in my November payday is leaving my bank balance looking a little bleak so I've got to wait until next Monday before I can book the Eurostar/flights :(

    Winnable tie at least so might skip a round and hope for somewhere exciting in the next round. I am tempted by Gent but I've been before.

    You going SL? Or anyone else?

    I'll probably go if I'm in the country since it's pretty close obviously, but might be somewhere SEA by then :)

    Pretty happy with gent. Hopefully we can rotate and still be too strong.

    I can see DDs point. Comp definitely seems weaker this year. Maybe winning the Sevilla cup will be our best avenue into the CL. That might actually apply to utd aswell.
