A very harsh take another the standard of European football compared to the Premier League. How many times has an English club won the Europa League in the last 10 years? We are a top 6 Premier League team, of course we are going to be far too good for similar places teams in Austria, Belgium and Croatia. It’s always been the case, depth wise the Premier League is the strongest around and this particular year is the strongest I can remember.

3 times, it's been won by Spain the other 7.

6 English teams have made the final 5 times, in that period, one being the all English Final.

7 Spanish Teams have made the final, they all won.

9 Champion's League drop outs have made it to 8 of those finals, 1 being an all Drop-Out final, but the drop-outs have only won three of those 8 finals.

Essentially we want to play a non-Spanish Champion's League Drop-Out in the final :lol:

Vlasic is really coming along, some of the work he did in tight spots, down the line, was superb. Another great signing from DM.
Really?
I'm quite underwhelmed so far, early days though.
