We will ret...

That was two interesting posts ...! Hearts will have a difficult way to the group stage, and Celtic will have an interesting group stage, they could reach second position. I hope for Osasuna qualify for the group stage, they deserve this and i'd we very happy if Osasuna play against Chelsea or so. O...

In the UEFA rankings the teams with the highest rankings do not play each other in the qualifying stages. The draw is arranged so that they play lower ranked teams. This is 'seeding.' For example, in this year's UEFA Cup Espanyol had a ranking of 29.326 so they were seeded in the 1st round and were...

Especially because if Hearts reach the third qualifying round they will not be seeded and will find it very difficult to reach the group stages. what does mean 'to be seeded' ? Arsenal are capable of beating any side if they hit top form as Real Madrid and Juventus have already found out this seaso...

are Gretna playing UEFA next season ?? Why? Because Hearts have finished second in the League and will be in the Champions League qualifiers. Same in England where Liverpool won the FA Cup on penalties so West Ham will go into the UEFA Cup because Liverpool's 3rd place in the League is good enough ...

Ah, I see. I thought the away goal counted double as in UEFA competitions. I hadn't realised it was so close. Congratulations to the 'blanc i blau' Maybe we'll see you playing Gretna in next season's UEFA Cup! are Gretna playing UEFA next season ?? Why? If i'm not mistaken, the goals counted double...

I thought a draw would have been good enough for Espanyol, no? In Spain teams with the same points are separated by the results of the games between them. Espanyol and Alaves played two draws. Wouldn't the 1-1 draw away have placed Espanyol above Alaves? no, we drew the 2 games and so the gol-avera...

Germany? Alas, no. Alas? Harder to qualify? I would say it's about the same. A team has to finish in the top two of their group to qualify or reach the play-offs.. . yes, i thought on a Euro you have more possibilities to qualify cause there are more european teams, no? And, i'm sorry for 'Boro KO ...

Hi Sergi and welcome to the Forum. To quote, just do as you did with your previous post, keeping the quoted text inside the html tags. You are right about OF referring to Celtic & Rangers. It means the 'Old Firm' the term commonly used to describe them for over a century. For the origins of the ter...
