Dutch clubs in Europe 2012/13

Draw for the first 2 rounds of the Europa League within an hour

Twente enter in round 1 Thursday July 5 and 12
Fietstas in round 2 - Thursday July 19 and 26

The possible opponents of Twente:
Flamurtari (Albanië), Celje (Slovenie), Hibernians (Malta), Santa Coloma (Andorra), FC Shirak (Armenië)

Celje would probably be the toughest of them all.
Obviously a disgrace if they did lose to them or any of the others.

Vitesse have Lokomotiv Plovdiv. Sounds like something from Thomas the Tank Engine

Twente will have Inter Turku from Finland in the second round if they can beat the might of Santa Coloma in the first round.

.
Finished 6th in their league. Opponents to be taken seriously it seems

Also the club who've had 3 of their former chairman shot dead in the last 10 years

Quote:
Georgi Iliev 2003-2005



A national and Balkan wrestling champion, in 1986 Iliev was sentenced to 11 years in prison for participating in a gang rape. In 1991 he was released early, only to be arrested again a year later under suspicion of car theft and possession of fake documents. In 1995 he was charged with theft and battery – his most recent arrest was in 2000, for hooliganism. Georgi is the brother and heir of Vasil Iliev, a high-profile Bulgarian "businessman" killed in 1995. His semi-legal business dealings were organised around VIS/VAI Holdings, which dabbled in tourism, food production, stores, nightclubs, the production and sale of liquor, and the cigarette trade. The 2003–2004 season was a landmark for Lokomotiv Plovdiv – for the first time in its history the team became Bulgarian champions, going on to win the Bulgarian Cup. Rumour has it that even before the season began, Iliev had bet 3 million euros in Asia that his team would become champions – and then made sure they won the title with a combination of bribes and threats. Fans idolised the team's president and were heartbroken by Iliev's murder in 2005.

Aleksandar Tasev 2006-2007

Famous as a cherry merchant, the Lokomotiv Plovdiv president also had investments in construction, furniture production and the fuel trade, as well as being the owner of a shoe factory and a winery. Tasev was murdered in 2007, making him the club's third president to die a violent death in less than three years. In 2005 Nikolay Popov was also killed – although at the time of his murder he was no longer president of the club.
and 3 more in the mid 90s

Georgi Kalapatirov - Chairman of Bulgaria's football team Lokomotiv Plovdiv, shot dead in 1995.
Georgi Prodanov - Chairman of Bulgaria's football team Lokomotiv Plovdiv, shot dead in 1995.
Petar Petrov - Chairman of Bulgaria's football team Lokomotiv Plovdiv, shot dead in 1998.

Mine as well, even before this. I would sign for a fairplay entry in the EL if this would garantee a trip to the Faroer.

In wich CL raw will Ajax and Feyenoord be? Pretty sure Feyenoord is going to be in the 4th spot in the group, and probably Ajax will be in 3rd, right?

Ajax are in the group stage draw and Feyenoord will be in the 3rd qualifying round draw.
3rd and 4th spots in the group?? Apoel Nicosia last season got to the quarter-final so you never know...

I think he meant pots: as in they're not seeded among the top teams.

Ajax most likely will be in pot 3. We have a small chance of ending in pot 2, but then almost all the teams in the qualifying rounds ranked above need to lose.

Isn't there also a chance of Feyenoord could be in pot 3 because of the time when they won the competition? Or is it just based on the coefficient of the last 5 seasons?
