    Hectic schedule if we get through the first few rounds 6 consective midweek matches is bound to affect our league form we will need to have a good few league points racked up by the beginning of July.

    We are also at a bit of a disadvantage for Group rounds 5&6 and the last 32 games as its our close season :-)

    Please, please let us get through to at least the 2nd qualifying round...and still have a chance in the second leg otherwise I won't be seeing any Europa League football next year! Unless maybe we draw a Welsh team in the first qualifying round...
    Keep on keepin' on.

    This is our chance to prove the improvements that have been made on a bigger scale. This is our chance to end 'Ah the ****ing Rovers, what would you be following them for?' jibes. A holiday? When we go 1-0 up in Riga, tell me again it's a holiday. It's a competition like no other, and while the chances of winning it are slim to none, we have the chance to restore Sligo's pride in the Rovers.

    Hey lads we may get a wee trip to Faroe Islands! That wouldn't be bad. Not too far to travel or maybe even Iceland! I can't wait for the draw! When is the draw around does anyone know?

    Trip to Minsk for me. A bit of Soviet-style police brutality, that's what I be after.

    The soviet police are stern, stern but fair !! Those ex soviet states are awful spots, Been to a game in Riga, dont fancy that again. Ideally want to get a handy first round draw in Faroe Islands or A crap Welsh team, then bring on a half decent team from Sweden or Iceland. It'd be great if we managed to get to the third round, could get lucky then and get a big pay day!! You never know

    Having been to the Faroes for the Ireland game,you really don't want to go there.
    Tifo poles, sausage rolls and a few goals.

    been to a game in Vilnius, Lituania years ago. Great spot.
    Not too far either and cheap as chips when you get there

    Its a tournament that could lose you 50k in the process - keeping our PL status would be the priority over everything - do you think we will win the competition?

    We should be competitive as always but i would rather 3 points than a euro hangover and lose!

    I will be at both home and away games anyway and will shout the rovers on but its all about priorities!

    Riga was a great trip last year.

    Clubs shouldn't really lose money on it as they're prize money of approximately 70k per round so that should cover all costs. Add ina bumper midweek crowd in July and the chance to get more sponsors and merchandise. Last year Pats charged €10 in and the place was full for both games in Inchicore. It should be an even easier sell for sligo.

    We got at least as much good press last year for getting through two rounds as Bohs did for winning the double. Progress in europe simply can't be overstated (providing you can pay for it, obvioulsy)

    By a prize I assume you mean by just playing in the first round - even if you lose. Cause usually you only a prize when you win somthin.
    Manager: Fergal, have you your boots with ya?
    Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
    Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!

    I would've thought he meant by getting through the round.
