    I've always liked Villarreal. They always welcomed us in Spain, in contrast to some other Spanish towns / cities. Classy fans. Delighted for them.

    United thought it was in the bag before the game, that they just needed to turn up and would win. It was always going to be tough against Villarreal. They defended really well.

    What other towns and cities in Spain were not welcoming? Genuine question, I haven't been to Spain on an away trip. Valencia, Barcelona, Vigo?

    Fair * to Villarreal. Everyone thought Arsenal would dispose of them easily; and I'm sure no one gave them a hope in * for the final (I know I didn't). Emery's record in the Europa is unbelievable, definitely going to go down in history for his achievements I reckon.

    Seeing them celebrate this win made me so envious as a Celtic fan. I really hope one day we can manage to make a statement in Europe again. Its the one thing I've been extremely disappointed with since Seville - our lack of progress. We should be aiming to compete in the Europa league knockouts at least. Now the burden of the 10 is lifted, there is no reason why we shouldn't be prioritising advancing on the European stage. We've severely neglected this for too many years now.

    Aye.

    English * are arrogant but don’t get why people are trying to downplay how big an achievement this is for Villarreal.

    Their population is about the same as Hamilton and they’ve just took down Man United who’ve spent about £1b putting that squad together over the years.

    Unreal club and fans. Celebrations were something else.

    Loved that ending..

    The standard of the EPL wasn't great this year. Even City weren't amazing, they just had a great run that pretty much sealed the title for them because everyone else was so *.

    Valencia and Madrid spring to mind. Perhaps I'm being unfair seeing as the bulk of the * involved were the police themselves.

    Paul Scholes over-confidence reminds me of when Man United were playing Sevilla in last 16 of Champions League. The late Ray Wilkins on Talksport: "This shouldn't be much of a problem for United. Where would Sevilla finish in the premier League... bottom six? Probably."

    This was Sevilla who were 5th at the time and had won multiple Europa leagues/UEFA cups in the years before.

    Of course, Sevilla ended up beating them. Nice one Ray.

    I know what your saying about the population but their fan catchment area will be wider and more than their towns population so I wouldn’t say same size as Hamilton in that regard very well run team though and we put them on the map going out to them all those years ago .... Spanish teams seem to have done brilliant with uefa cup/ Europa since we got to Seville find it weird
