We are fucking shitebag scum. Perfect run to group stages and McTimnes delivers us the shit sandwich of no playoff round again. This is why Aberdeen fans are running away at a rapid speed of knots.

Went to Qarabag v APOEL Nicosia CL qualifier last night.

 

Azerbaijanis 2-1 up from 1st leg in Cyprus.

 

Full hoose, cracking atmosphere, very decent match.

Qarabag had enough good chances to win, didn't take any, APOEL clinical in digging out the 2-0 to go through.

 

2nd goal celebrations team went over to about 12 Cypriot fans in corner gan mintil...stewards/riot polis had serious problems holding the locals back at the segregation.  :laughing:

 

Anyhoo, relevance to EL being to guage strength of Cypriot opposition in Europe with a view to our potential clash  :hysterical:  with AEK Larnaka in the next round.

APOEL won league by 2 points from Apollon, 10 ahead of AEK.

Look decent enough, but almost buckled a few times under intense pressure.
Not sure how strong Qarabag are to guage against, but they seem to have been in group stages in CL and EL over last few years IIRC.

Anyhoo.

No problem for Linfield to get to the play-offs

The Northern Lights of old Aberdeen

Mean home sweet home to me

The Northern Lights of Aberdeen

Are what I long to see

I've been a wanderer all of my life

And many a sight I've seen

God speed the day when l'm on my way

To my home in Aberdeen!!

Good coefficient from qualifying every year so they've been seeded in every tie

 

They've obviously been knocked out of the champions league and dropped in to the Europa

 

They must have won 2 ties and lost 1 tie.

I thought our co-efficient dicated we would enter in EL2? If so, no parachute for us.

 

Having different tiers of Euro competition is just UEFA admitting that the CL is a closed shop for all but the richest teams. The old style EC, CWC and UC were not tiered as such, they were just different tournaments that you qualified for based on whether you won your national league, cup or finished league runners-up.

 

All UEFA gives a fuck about is getting all the big teams to the last 16 of the CL. Everything else is an afterthought.

they are in champions path, with means all drop outs from Champions league is who they can face as asides to league path 2nd / 3rd /4tth places in better leagues - they've beat Faroe league winners and Montenegro league winners, and now have Azarbiajan to qualify

Yeah.

Might be tight in NI, but when they come to Baku in 2 weeks time, Qarabag will take 4 or 5 off them.

 

Hopefully I'll get the opportunity to batter 4 or 5 rabid huns too.

Fucking freaks.
