    The other month I phoned up a company in Akureyri (home of Thor) and asked to speak with Siggi, the receptionist replied 'which Siggi? Siggi Paul, Siggi Jon, Siggi Mar or Euro Siggi?' I said who's Euro Siggi? then the kronur dropped, it was the very same Siggi who scored the hattrick plus 2 assists v Bohs and apparantly has been branded Euro Siggi in honour ever since.
    Disappointed to hear there is no Siggi Stardust there.

    I see Bohs are to use Lansdowne if drawn at home.
    Any reason why?

    If it's for distancing, surely Dalymount being used for league matches means it's fine for the EL.
    Unless the FAI want a match there so they can plan for the NL matches in September?
    Have you ever won the treble?

    Bohs have done it because uefa have said they'll reverse ties if the away team has a stadium more suited to allowing social distancing procedures. Dundalk are considering asking the same.

    Very messy for the clubs involved.

    Gavin Bazunu in the Manchester city champions league squad. Pretty impressive, obviously doing well

    Doubt it for being named in a squad but if he gets game time you'd have to hope so

    Not a good draw. Away to potentially the best non seed in the pot

    Thought the Finnish team looked good on paper, but the Slovenians a really tough draw for sure. Slovenia not on the green list either so God knows where it'll be played.

    We were one ball away from getting the Faroes!

    NK Celje (Slovenia) vs. Dundalk. I would have said they were the ones to avoid in that pot.
    As Slovenia isn't on our green list, I assume the match will be moved to Hungary or Greece: https://www.rte.ie/sport/soccer/2020...ce-or-hungary/

    Presume the Europa League draws are at 12?

    Edit - wiki says it's tomorrow at 12. No pots up as yet though, it seems

    Seems to me only the preliminary round is drawn today.

    Probably the toughest or second toughest draw Dundalk could’ve got but they’ve got 0 players that are full internationals so at least that’s something. By comparison Norrköping that Pats played last season had 17 full internationals in their squad. I think if the pre-lockdown Dundalk turn up on the night they have a good chance of going through

    Compared to the Faroes or Estonia (two other countries in the pot) it's obviously a tough draw, especially for the first round.

    But they've not won a European tie in 15 years. They've not even been in Europe in the last five seasons, and this is their CL debut as they'd never won the league before. It's arguably the kind of tie LoI ties should be aiming to be a bit confident going into.

    That's it. I actually thought the Finnish were tougher possible opponents - they ran Legia Warsaw close last season and Copenhagen the season before.

    People seem to be basing NK Celje's strength purely on them winning the Slovenian league a couple of weeks ago, finishing above Maribor. They finished 5th in the previous 4 seasons, so maybe there has been a big squad overhaul?

    No European pedigree at all. If we're serious about group stage football, and that's why the owners are here and what the club keep talking about, then we should be winning this tie, no excuses.

    In fairness, they only had kind draws available to them. 3 Faroe teams or the San Marino team.

    Gas thing is both NI sides were unseeded - I presume because the Faroese and Sammarinese teams have picked up extra coefficient points at the preliminary stage, which the IL sides have skipped before now.

    Similarly in the other pool, the Andorran and Gibraltar sides were seeded over the Montenegro and Kosovan sides. So effectively it all balanced out with everyone really on the wrong side of the pools.
