    There are no points for InterToto games. If Bohs were to 'win' the InterToto, their subsequent UEFA Cup games would be elligible for points.

    There's a thread in here somewhere about seedings that has co-efficient information.

    Ok we are ranked 35th placed country out of 53 - and we lose 0.333 from 5 years ago - surely we can get more than that this year - maybe a full 1.0 point?

    It will be difficult this year with city and pats both unseeded they could face some tricky ties like man city or brondby. It could be up to Drogs to add to the co-efficent

    On the other hand could get a team seeded just above them which they could beat. Lots of teams there are beatable, it's all down to the draw. Number of beatable teams in the next round too.

    Drogs should make it into second round, looks very tough after that.

    Here is the thread - probably best to keep it all in there.

    Eircom League in Europe - 2008

    A general discussion thread about EL teams in Europe.

    The UEFA cup and Champions league draw takes place on the 01 July which more than likely means a trip for Cork City, Drogheda and St Pats to eastern or southern Europe.
    Obviously hoping for a good draw for Cork City but for the other teams too. English opposition in the third round UEFA cup would be great for an EL team, providing they get to the third round.
    German or English draws would also be huge money spinners in terms of TV rights.

    A trip to Luxembourg, Malta, Faros, Wales, or the Balkans would be fine logistically. It’s the nightmare journeys for the team and fans to places like Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Kazakhstan.

    Congrats too, to Bohs. 5 – 1 on Saturday night. Let’s hope ye can do the same this weekend and carry that momentum into the next round.

    Fylkir. They should win their tie now as they have two away goals. Bohs have a good chance of beating them especially as Bohs are playing away first.

    If they get to the third round they'll play either Elfsborg of Sweden or Hibs. I think Elfsborg could surprise Hibs and their extra match fitness could prove decisive in that tie.

    Elfsborg are useful enough but their results in the last year and half have been up and down. Linfield tested them last year in the Champions League qualifiers. If I remember correctly Linfield nearly got a late away goal that would have sent them through to the next round.

    All in all, I think Bohs have a reasonable chance of getting into the UEFA Cup proper.

    Is the UEFA Cup not drawn on a regional basis in the early rounds?

    Correct - City and Pats are likely to be facing Baltic or Scandinavian teams in the first round. Not too sure about Drogheda but I'd imagine they face a similar situation.

    Drogheda could be anywhere in Europe - the CL is an open draw from the start.
