Yes ... "drawn into single leg matches, which will be hosted by one of the teams decided by draw, and will be played behind closed doors."I quite like us playing teams I’ve never heard of.
Am I right in thinking they are one off games?
Im glad there is seeding (and expected there to be) but we don’t want to be having to travel to the arse end of nowhere in Azerbaijan, which you just know will happen knowing our luck.Yes ... "drawn into single leg matches, which will be hosted by one of the teams decided by draw, and will be played behind closed doors."
So being seeded doesn't mean playing at home, but it means we won't get PSV, Milan, Sporting or one of those kinds of team.
We’d never gear the end of it if this happens. Seriously will be bantered for a decade if we don’t make the EL groups 16 months after playing a CL finalSardine Spitzbergen 1-0 (AET)
Underpants Minsk 1-0 (AET)
Spartak Cabbage 0-0 (Tottenham lose 1-3 on penalties)
I'd never want Spurs t draw an Irish League team, not even Linfield or Crusaders, simply because the poster boy for the Irish Legue way of playing is Kirk Hunter.As a Glentoran fan (still on a high after last night’s Irish Cup win), I’d be delighted with a Spurs v Glens tie. The Glens have to get through two rounds before this is a possibility though.
Yep. Assuming we get through the qualifiers, we'll be playing the Europa every midweek except for international breaks until the 10th of December. In some of those midweeks we're likely to have the League Cup on the Tuesday night as well because there's nowhere else for it to go.2nd qualifying round is the start for us then a 3rd round followed by a quarter final round of which the champions league failures are in and if we get through that 3 rounds we then get to play again and am I right in thinking the games are weekly?
Well in that case we’d better get a big,fit enough squad in place and certainly a back up striker if not two.Yep.

OK, my best guesses
So how are these qualifying games and general group games going to work with isolation with certain counties done at the drop of a hat? Say we play a Spanish team and while we are out there it’s announced that anyone returning from Spain has to self isolate for 14 days , what happens to the PL game that weekend?
Now confirmed.6th Place now assured.
Think we go into 2nd Preliminary Round, draw 31 August and play 17 September,
3rd Preliminary Round, draw 1 September, play 24 September
Play Off Round, draw 18 September, play 1 October
Group Stages, draw 2 October, first game 22 October.
Loooks like all single games, no 2 legged matches.
