    Where do we sit in the Europa league draw? Will we be seeded in and who can we potentially face?
    No clue how it works with the CL dropouts and first in the EL groups etc.

    If we played Sheriff Tiraspol tonight we would have struggled. Luckily the next European match is over two months away, enough time to pick up some form and decent reinforcement by then.

    Salzburg or ostersunds would be a good draw, but we'll get arsenal of lazio knowing our luck.

    Can we register new players for the EL then?

    Does Cup Ties come into it (for the next round) if they've played EL/CL too?

    I'm happy to see Sporting and Celtic continue their European campaigns. Sporting had a shot this year at making it out of the CL group stage, we could've done better against Juventus in the first game we played against them, Celtic unfortunately had the worst possible group, so, I'm hoping Celtic gets some luck now.

    I don't think we can register players who's already played in the EL this season. CL players should be fine.

    Absolutely buzzing for it TBH.

    Folk trying to suggest we’ve regressed in Europe whilst we’re still in Europe are being a bit silly. Let’s wait until the season is done.

    I don't see any progression to be honest 'performance-wise' in the CL groups! For me, when group was drawn looked at Pot 3 and knew we'd have a better shout at EL than last year i.e. i rate Gladbach over Anderlecht.

    We've achieved our objective but i don't see any improvement in the performances. Think we played as well in Germany as Belgium.

    Still chuffed we're in it and hope we get a decent draw. I'll be buzzing too com Feb.
