UEFA Europa Conference League: all you need to know

Luckily it's looking like Dynamo Zagreb may not qualify for this competition because they're doing too well in the Croatian league, so we may avoid this arch nemesis.

SE23 in the streets, N17 in the sheets
I do wish people who claimed not to care about this competition stopped going on and on about how much they don't care and let the rest of us who want us to win a trophy - any trophy - get on with following it.

It’s a shit competition no doubt but one the gooners couldn’t even qualify for! If we are in it lets fucking win it! Why would we turn our noses up at any silver wear right now?
Reread again.

I refer Europa Conference League.

I said Europa League has CL prize, and random big teams. Yet it's still a hassle, and if one doesn't have enough depth, and required to prioritize, it's not rare to see one would drop EL in favor of bigger thing in the league: title challenge sort of thing.

With priority in mind, how sure one can be that Villareal and Roma would commit to go all the way, if they find themselves in position to prioritize bigger things in the following season? You commit your season in this competition the whole season playing Thursday-Sunday/Monday, yet there is good probability you may not see any decent team worth your time here. In contrary, in League Cup, it's still rare to avoid all bigger teams. Worst case scenario, you have an easy run for the trophy (not happening), with the games are packed in few months only.

When a trophy requires so much failing to participate, winning it may says we end our trophy drought on paper, but in reality it brings no belief since it's competition of loser. Teams with better thing to do would have a difficult time to have a chance to play in this competition.
You said the EL wasn't worth it without the CL qualification gimmick. It is, just on financials, vastly more beneficial than the League Cup which actually costs clubs of top half PL standard money to play in. It doesn't provide the riches of the CL, but it provides tens of millions in revenue for a deep run, and significantly more money than either of the domestic cups.

This idea of deprioritizing the EL is so bizarre and so completely unique to Spurs - a club that's won fuck all in 13 years and 2 minor cups in 30 years and counting.

Since the format was switched to a single final, the clubs who have played in that final include Liverpool, Woolwich, Chelsea, United, Inter, Lazio, Dortmund, Sevilla, Valencia, Atletico, Ajax, Marseilles, Porto, and Benfica.

But Spurs are too big with a trophy cabinet too full to give it a go.


The current estimates place the total payout of winning the ECL around €20M. For winning the FA Cup we'd get about €3.5M. It's not a competition we want to be in, obviously, but it pays a substantial amount and provides an opportunity to win something. Something we haven't done in 13 fucking years.

We really need to get over ourselves.


Now I'm a big fat dynamo!
This season was royally fucked up from the off by having to qualify for the Europa League group stages.
Poch's team lost its remaining MoJo under Mourinho, and now we're in for a complete rebuild.
If I was the new coach, I would put ALL my eggs into the PL, and going for CL qualification.
I don't give a monkeys about some Europa conference league.
I would not throw all of our eggs in one basket.

Tottenham is not big enough were we can turn our noses up at any competition. You build winning mentality by taking all competitions seriously.

Poch's insistence on cups and EL not mattering was a mistake. He did a lot of good but that was a mistake.
Not sure if it's already been mentioned and by no means saying it's a great achievement to have qualified for this, however it may be more important in the long run than we think.

Teams get pretty much the same coefficient points for wins/draws in the conference league as the UCL and UEL. In 3 years there will be CL places up for grabs for teams outside the top 4 with high UEFA coefficients, or even seedings to think about in future group draws should we be in the competition. A season with zero returns would be pretty damaging as these count against you for 5 years.

As I said, not trying trying to justify it as a major achievement, but finishing above Woolwich, an opportunity for some of the youngsters next season, better in terms of revenue and coefficient points and a chance to watch Spurs play more often was the best of a bad set of outcomes on offer yesterday for me.

This cup is a joke, and I think we are s bit of a joke for even being in this tin pot conference shit..
Think we should just get out of it right away, we won't win it anyway as our recent history clearly shows...
If we just quit competitions we're not guaranteed to win we may as well just quite the league and play friendlies forever.

The state of some of you.
