    I take it we’re seeded and not jaffas then lol

  • bubs says:

    Can you draw someone from your own country or are you separated as in other competitions ?

  • Chicken Runner says:

    Expect you are kept apart for now bubs.Later knockout rounds you get your own countries teams to play if you get down to the last 16 onwards & it turns into a cup knockout draw.Least we are safe from the big boys for now being seeded along with them.I dont fancy playing Dortmund in a qualifiying round 😀

  • bubs says:

    Let’s hope by the time we play the bigger teams we have the first team sorted the new signings involved,
    Let’s get past the fodder first,could be a banana skin tomorrow if Lee lets me down I have no trust in Magia,

    I’m still hoping the junior Viking gets the nod but I suppose more interesting is if Maiga scores a couple past the maltesers,will that be enough to put him in Slav’s plans,my thoughts would be he’d still have more to prove.
    I’m hoping to see more first teamers tomorrow
