OK good, you avoided 3rd place..

Again, to relate this to Fener, the way things stand we'll draw one of these teams;

Group A: Basel
Group B: -
Group C: Club Brugge
Group D: Sochaux
Group E: Villareal
Group F: Auxerre
Group G: Dinamo Zagreb
Group H: Zenit

We could still draw Feyenoord if Basel can beat them in the next match.. :D

I've heard and read different. The teams from the CL will play the second placed teams while the teams which end first play the third placed teams, so you folks will be more likely to face Benfica than Feyenoord :D I've heard this from English radio, read it on Feyenoords site and also heard AZs manager say why it's important his side ends first (which they are now :cool: )

To finish second or third, Feyenoord would have to lose by 3 clear goals to Basel :D Schalke in most likelihood will end second in our group with Basel 3rd.

In Benficas group, Stuttgart should get top spot when they beat Dinamo Zagreb at home while Benfica will get second spot (worse goal difference than Stuttgart) with Heerenveen getting third spot, since they'll easily beat Beverens Ivory Coast youngsters.

Note on Heerenveen btw, they were 2-0 down with 4 minutes to go against Zagreb in Croatia but came back to draw 2-2 :cool: they could have even nicked it at the death but they hit the crossbar! Ugur Yildrim really is proving to be a Beckham for them. Gave away the first goal with a feeble Beckhamlike mistackle but made it up with a great goal. Turkeys management really should pick him before we do, since he's said his first choice is Turkey but if he has to wait, he'll play for Holland (reverse of Turaci)

So the teams which you'll meet should be:

Group A : Schalke

B: Bilbao?

C: Zaragoza

D: Sochaux (Newcastle will crush Sporting)

E: Villareal (Boro will beat Partizan)

F: Glasgow Rangers

G: Benfica

H: Lille

correct :D


who would you guys want btw from the list?

I'd want either Sochaux, Lille and sorry Ana, Benfica, if I was Daum

and I'd want to avoid the Spanish sides cos of their quality plus Rangers and Schalke since Turkish sides seem to have problems with physical sides (England)

2nd place meets the CL team ;) read my post above. Also losing to Anderlcht and Stuttgart gives me the idea that Benfica has problems with physical sides. Just my opinion. I'd be first to admit Feyenoord have many problems too in certain areas like having a crap defence.

always has. Read it on various Dutch sites, heard it on the radio and AZs manager said so too.

weaker team? the 3rd team will play the team which ends top of the pool but it depends on the draw really

the top on the pool is supposed to be weaker than the 3rd on CL, no?

anyways, no point on discussing it

Depends. Teams like Stuttgart and Newcastle are stronger on paper than Celtic, Fenerbahce and Panathinaikos but sides which will end top like Feyenoord, AZ and Dnipro aren't.

Never said it was bad. Just a losers cup since UEFA is making a mockery of it by letting CL losers into it. Just like what Feyenoord was when they won the cup. :)
