Canny see it as we're too weak on the bench but you never know.

92/93 we had a team of grafters with a bit of skill and right now we're roughly the same so never say never.

Let's get past the Israelis first and see who we get. championee

Well i think we can get through the next two stages anyway. We should beat H. Tel-Aviv and then we've got either Bordeaux or Osasuna. Either of them i dont think we'd have to much trouble with but after that who knows. depends on who we get i suppose. If we can aoid the likes of bremen, spurs and sevilla then why the hell not!!

Don't see why not, we are capable of given anyone a run for their money if we play well. Our defense is more solid which will only help. We should get through the next two rounds and I would find it quite amusing if we got drawn against PSG if they get through their next two rounds.

Depending on how the draws pan out I have a sneaky suspicion that Spurs might get to the final.

LOVE to see it , but being realistic - NO.

Perhaps Thompson will allow us to be more creative and Burke will start to play again.

Thats our only hope.

And Prso isn't injured, and Sebo starts to knock them in, and Adam hit's some 40 yarders, and Boydie plays some blinders and Novo rips slower defences to shreads. :D

I think our best fit side at the moment would be

Mac

Hutt,Ugo,Weir,Smith?

Burke,Fergie,Brahim,Thomo

Buffel,Boyd

Think it would beat any team in the SPL and cause problems in Europe.

sorry but i don't rate Charlie Adam,he is too fat and slow and canny cross the road most days.

I dont rate him that much either, just Thomson is better in the middle alongside Ferguson and punt Hemdani. Thomson can play out on the left but is suited in the middle. He can do Hemdani's job and attack. Faster, more skillful and is a better passer and a lot quicker at making passes.

Adam has been not too bad in the European matches.

Honestly astonished we got this far...Livorno looked as if their mind was on something else, the game in Auxerre looked like a junior game, ...having said all that I fancy their chances in this round, but after that, na you cant kid yourself with false optimism....unfortunately were gash.
