    Figured I'd start one in here. The draw is the 17th July for qualifier. I'm hoping Portugal or East Europe at 20p a pint personally. But expecting Kazakhstan or somewhere stabby in reality.

    How many here are going to do the away leg out of interest?

    Yeah me and a few mates are planning an away leg. Depends if we get into the groups though as the qualifier is to soon really.

    I'm banking on the qualifier pretty much guaranteeing me a ticket to the group stages of we make it. Let me know if you do though and I'll happily shout you a beer in whichever random country were in!

    Fair enough it's my usual pre/post game haunt although it's pretty pricey these days

    Draw is on today 12pm cet. Going to be straight on the flight bookings sites when we get drawn as prices will go up quickly. Here's hoping it's not kazakhstan!

    The Netherlands, probably one of the better non seeded teams but should be a good away day and I'd still expect you to progress.

    Flights confirmed via amsterdam, good price too at £92! Pretty much guaranteed a ticket due to doing 8 aways last season.

    All trolling aside, I'm genuinely wishing you well in this tournament. Here's hoping we meet each other at some stage. Would be a great occasion.

    Only way I'd want to meet you right now is in the final mate. Reckon you'd beat us in most games and that's one where the bets are off. Can't wait for it to be fair, only the second I've been old enough to do

    Nothing like it mate. People can be critical of the Europa League all they like but there's something special about watching your club in Europe.

    People also joke about hellholes in Eastern Europe but I've done Lisbon and Florence in the last couple of years so there are some decent away days in it too. I'll be hoping you and West Ham do well in it (excluding playing us of course).
