    Harsh draw.

    The only plus side is that it's easy to get to.

    Even worse for Crues, nightmare.

    That's a massive boost, at least. Handy extra cash.

    Will they get the 2nd qualifying round cash even with a bye though?

    You'd have to imagine they would.

    Downside is no trip for the second round if we lose to Warsaw (when we lose) and that would have been a winnable tie in theory. Now we could get Midtylland or someone in the third round and lose all our games and be done. There are some potential beatable sides there if all seeds win their ties though so playoff is not out of the question. Coefficient points for reaching the third round in the bag before we even kick a ball, plus the prize money I guess.

    That's a fair win-win for Cork in that case. Only one round from a Europa League playoff at that too.

    Ahh ok, not so bad so. Be a tough a round to enter but will give ye an extra week off that we won't have, unless we get knocked out before hand but I'd be hopeful we will both make it that far at least and then who knows what might happen!

    These are the expected seeded sides as things stand for EL QR3 in the Champions Path. Some tricky sides, some winnable ties there.

    They are streets ahead of Cork. I'm not sure what you have to offer against that other than that once you watched them? You said any top side in Europe would hammer them - I've shown that's not true.

    .
    Well my team Basel hammered them 4-0 easy enough and would be delighted to get them again. I am sorry I should relaise that 90% of all European teams are class compared to a LOI team.
    Just a well organised team would beat them no problem, thats my opinion after looking at them more than once in Europe, 4 times in fact, twice in st jakob. have you seen them yourself?
    Cant win games on paper

    edit: god damn, missed the draw, and rushed home early, tsk bloody cet times!
    awful draw for cork, christ

    If it wasn't for any idiot ref giving an idiotic penalty giving a penalty against Andy Boyle....

    Dundalk had the measure of Legia, they are beatable. This is the chance for Cork to lay down a marker and show the wider sporting public what they are made of.

    Caulfield needs to drum into them that there is no safety net. Forget the Europa League.

    Go out and beat the Poles lads and do the league proud. All real LOI fans will be behind you.

    Beat Finnish champions 9-0 on agg last season - I get the impression they have improved further.

    On the other side pressure off may help us. Dundalk and Pats have both gotten results over there in the recent past. They won't have played any competitive games and have 2 players in the Polish squad for the world cup, where its not inconceivable that they are still in that a week before we play Legia.

    Problem is the money Legia earned from beating Dundalk means that they should now be pretty much untouchable by Cork now.

    I`m pretty sure you only get cash for the rounds you play in, so I don’t think Cork will be eligible for payment for EL round 2 should they lose to Legia.

    It’s a very tough draw and I think Legia have got stronger since they beat us on agg, but we drew over there, should have won really, they scored equaliser in the 92nd min, but won 3-1 on agg to be fair, so although it’s a huge ask, it’s not completely impossible, Legia will obviously be massive odds on to progress though.

    Nice bonus of skipping EL round 2 should they lose (winning the draw for the tie that gets the bye), I`m assuming Cork will be unseeded for round 3, as this was one I was looking at before. Should Dundalk make it that far, we will no longer be seeded, so likes of Burnley, Besiktas, Seville, Atalanta, Bordeaux, Sparta etc will all be there and seeded, assuming they all navigate past round 2.
