I've seen there's been a shock already, Spartak Moscow beaten 3-2 on the night after the 1st leg finished 2-2. Anyone know why the 2 Turkish teams games have been postponed?

Fenerbahce have been kicked out of the Champions League over match-fixing allegations so Trabzonspor have taken their place and subsequently their second leg against Athletic Bilbao in the Europa League has been cancelled.

Athletic Bilbao get a bye into the Europa League group stages.

Hibs Class
25-08-2011, 08:36 PM
He was going away from goal so not a clear goalscoring opportunity. He hadn't played the ball that far ahead of him and so I think he'd have scored if he hadn't been brought down. The direction he was travelling in is secondary to whether he was denied the opportunity. I think it was sympathetic refereeing.

Did I just hear the beasts singing "bring on the Hibees"?

If he'd passed the keeper he'd be about 4 yards from goal with no-one in front of him and a tight, but very do-able angle on goal. Would have thought that would merit a red.

They keep singing about us. Spurs fans now siinging "Champions League you're havin a laugh".:greengrin

Full time at Ibrox. That was some shameful sh*t. Started the game hoping they would be put out but after all that cheating I wanted them to win. The huns have profited so much from cheating that if they have been victims of it tonight and their fans feel cheated then it just makes their exit all the sweeter.

This puts the threads whinging for investment into perspective, here are 3 clubs pouring vastly more cash than we do into their squads papped out of Europe at the first time of asking.

If this doesn't set alarm bells singing off at Hampden, and even more importantly, Ibrox and Parkhead, nothing will. We need change and we need it now or this league is going to end up the standard of that in Wales or Northern Ireland!


Any ideas what this has done to our coefficient? We must be set to lose places for this?

I hate the 3 clubs playing tonight as much as anyone but tonight's (and last week's) results really show just how bad our game actually is up here.

No-one expected Hearts to challenge Spurs and what everyone expected to happen did happen in the first leg. However for the two best teams in our country to lose to clubs from Slovenia and Switzerland is really poor stuff. The really worrying thing is that, YET AGAIN, they'll finish first and second in the league about 25 points ahead of everyone else.

I hear people say quite a lot that we shouldn't criticise our football as much as we do because it's not as bad as a lot of people make it out to be.

People need to realise that Scottish football is dead, the SPL is one of the weakest leagues in Europe and our clubs cannot compete now with even the more modest of nations.

there are 2 CL spots this year as it counts back over several years.....so there is the chance for someone to split the OF and get some of the bigger money...never a better chance when you see how they (OF) are struggling...with the window about to close they are noy going to have Europe as the ace to attract decent players...or the extra finance.....

The cash is biased towards bigger clubs across the world now. It's called raw capitalism. Leagues used to distribute income more equitably, which made them more competitive. European competition is now more or less totally predictable. It's all based on wealth.

As I write Shamrock Rovers in extra time in Belgrade while Celtic and Rangers are out ( won`t mention Hearts - should UEFA not have a rule where second legs aren`t played if there`s 5+ goal difference against away team ? ) . Only a couple of weeks ago there were rumours here that Michael O`Neill was favourite to be our new manager . Looks like our chance has gone and when CC leaves we`ll go back to usual mediocre manager with SPL background .

Don't blame the teams outside the OF for the recent failures in Europe. The OF can't decide whether the SPL holds them back or gives them a constant avenue into Europe. Meanwhile they asset strip any Scottish club willing to challenge them although this season they've not even been able to afford that!

The end game for Sky/major European clubs is a two tier/conference style European League of about 40 clubs. Bayern Munich were hinting at this recently. I would imagine the OF have a good chance of being involved due to, whether we like it or not, their large fan bases world wide.

The Irish clubs have had as good if not better results than Scottish based clubs for a while now ( results of OF have been boosted by ranking which have meant they`ve avoided early rounds , something that`s going to change soon ) . Bohemians beat Aberdeen about 8 years ago and since then results have been similar between clubs from two leagues . Great result for Shamrock Rovers and for Michael O`Neill .

Spurs were uninspired. I'll wager that's the last game Pavs plays, especially with you-know-who waiting in the wings.

Kranjcar was the only spark but he looks a star against inferior opposition. He does nowt in the Prem.

Hearts were dreadful too. It was as though the pitch was 30 yards too long for their wee legs! Their moves just fizzled out.

I don't understand the fuss about Templeton. Very lightweight. Probably go and get a hattrick on sunday now.

Not compared to the Champions League sure, but I'd imagine the income for an Irish League club is even lower than ours, the money for qualifying, plus maybe a tasty big club in their group and they could still make more money than they would take in in several seasons!
