    Another poor/shocking result by Bilic and West Ham in Europe, 2 years in a row they go out against Astra Giurgiu, one step before the EL group stages.

    Tonight we will play our strongest team available to ensure progression to the group stages of the Europa League. dg

    Haha. West Ham are my new side to actively dislike so this is pleasing.

    Awful.

    You've got to ask yourself if these teams can't be arsed why do they bother even qualifying, though WHU did do there best to hand it to us at the end of last season.

    As Europa League draws go, that's on the trickier end of the scale for ManU.

    Hopefully Skrtel inflicts a season ending injury on Ibra.
    It would make up for that Southampton performance last season.

    To be honest Southampton's isn't easy.

    Though looking at the draw it's not a straight forward breeze through it once was, probably a couple of groups that would have been fine say for us if we had got in but the rest have some tricky ties.

    I look at the draw for the EL less as whether it's a challenge to get through, as all English sides should get through to the KO (shame on you, West Ham), but more from the perspective of how big a chore the away ties will be how likely they are to affect league preparation.

    Watched Yossi last night for Tel Aviv against Hajduk Split, 37 years of age, used more in rotation though he started last night, but still with some classy touches and turns.

    Milan Baros scored for Liberec. The game finished 2-2. They played away against Qarabag.

    Mourinho looks like he'd rather be in a dentist's chair than managing in the Europa League.

    Feyenoord fans belting out "You'll Never Walk Alone"

    lollollol

    Ah I see why they didn't win they played their reserves.... I forgot for a minute looking at the teams you see I saw Bailley, Pogba, De Gea, Smalling, Herrera, Martial

    They then brought on Depay and Ibrahimovic after 60 minutes.... What a squad they must have if they are the reserves fuck off Scholes.

    Balotelli is in the starting squad against Schalke.

    German free tv channel Sport1 shows the game live.

    Check out Hapoel Be'er Sheva beating Inter 2 - 0 in Italy today. They've knocked Olympiakos out of Champion's League qualifying, nearly dumped Celtic out and now have been a three-time European champion. Nasty little team from near the Gaza Strip.
