  1. Spot on. This year you need 33,000 coefficient points to get into pot 3. We had 16,250 coming into this year. If we match last year, ie last 16 we will get approximately another 11,000 this year so still only 27,250.
  2. I am sure us a AC Milan would have been the 2 pot 3 teams everyone wanted to avoid.
  3. That's a good scenario, perfect is Standard and Poznan draw and we win. 🤣
  4. The jury still out on him for me. That said, the Leeds fans think he was fantastic for them and most were unhappy when he left. I know that was Championship and not PL, but still one of the better Championship sides. This suggests the guy has something so hopefully it will show in the future.
  5. Only positive is we haven't played well but still 0-0. Their tactics have been spot on so might be another 45 minutes of the same. 1 goal could win this, just need to make sure it is for us.
  6. To be fair they aren't normally played every week, but we started late this year.
  7. For the record I think the system is actually very good, and UEFA have thought of most eventuality. It is skewed towards benefiting the big leagues but as long as you stay in the top 15 countries it works quite well for you. Scotland are back there now but the trick is to stay there.
  8. Seeding are based on club coefficient. The country coefficient is only used to ascertain how many teams your country get into the CL and EL, and now EC and where these teams enter each competition. i.e. which qualifying round or straight into group. Once that is decided the club coefficient is used to ascertain the seeded teams for each of the qualifying rounds and then which pot you are in if you make the group stage. The only time the country coefficient comes into play again is where a club has a lower coefficient than its country coefficient, in that case it gets allocated the
  9. Yes , but did the deserve a pot 1 seeding.
  10. It isn't a case of getting the right of access, that is a given based on where you finish in your country's league or cup. It is a case of seeding for qualifiers of group pots. We would never have been denied access to CL or EL due to not being in Europe for 5 years but we were unseeded for the qualifiers, even the early ones in the first year back because we were Scottish. If we were Spanish, English etc we would have been seeded through all the qualifiers and put in pot 2 of the EL group, whereas last year we were in pot 4 and this year pot 3.
  11. I suspect a mixture of the bets going on us and 3 of their better players not travelling to Glasgow.
  12. Interesting. There is an article on bbc today highlighting their 3 most dangerous players and Tiba and Kaminski are 2 of them.
  13. I agree. That to me is the one area UEFA have it wrong, the rest actually works not too bad. If your club coefficient is lower than the country one you get the country coefficient. The theory is that if you were 4th or 5th in Spain but haven't been in Europe for 5 years for example, you are probably better than a team from Andorra that make Europe every year. It doesn't effect the quality teams, only the also rans. I think the highest country coefficient is around 16 and we are now above that despite only having 2 full years points plus this years. We have felt the effect the past 2 years as
