Love the Europa League myself - you don't find the likes of Ekranas, FC Slovan Librec or Omania in the Champions League. And how is Brad Friedel supposed to get a game if we were in the Champions League? Think about that. A Friedel-less season.

Just imagine if we got FK Khazar Lankaran in the group? Amazing - Azerbaijan is the next Italy - just as we knew Qu Bo was the next Michael Owen! FK Khazar Lankaran are so good they have a. Ex-real Madrid and International Manager in change there - the one and only John Toshack!

So yeah, fuck your Champions League glitz and glamour - REAL European football is in the Europa League - yeah, is cheap, nasty, and most of the games are forgettable (anyone remember coming back from 2-0 down to Alborg) but Iove it. Bring on 5th place and all it's beautiful rewards! You can dream about Barca, Real, Dortmund and Milan all you like - I'm dreaming of Spurs v Inter Turku!

a Chelsea fan got pushed in the canal. Absolutely brilliant.
 
This forum and you lot are the funniest thing I've seen in quite some time, gotta say! And you called me obsessed with Spurs! Ha!

Look at you all, sitting here pissing and moaning about Chelsea while we're lifting another trophy! It's a beautiful sight!

:troll:

And while your team is lifting a trophy, you are on a Spurs forum.

Couldnt be arsed to go all the way to Amsterdam? Or even to the pub?

Fucking mug cunt. Would rather get relegated than win anything supporting your shit club
 
So I keep seeing these images bragging about how Chelsea are the first club to win both major European Cups in the same year. I don't know if it has dawned of them that that's because most defending Champions League winners aren't so shit that they get knocked out at the group stages.

"Legacy Fan"
Us and Atletico Madrid fans. There are other clubs like it but those two stand out, big history, big support and lots of hope only to be let down (although they won the EL so maybe they broke their curse)

Benfica apparently are cursed:
Béla Guttmann: Coach and manager of some the world’s leading football teams, including AC Milan, São Paulo FC, FC Porto, Benfica and C.A. Peñarol. His greatest success came with Benfica when he guided them to two successive European Cup wins in 1961 and in 1962. After the 1962 final Guttmann approached the Benfica board of directors and asked for a pay rise, but, despite the success he had brought the club, he was turned down. On leaving Benfica he allegedly cursed the club, declaring "Not in a hundred years from now will Benfica ever win a European Cup". Despite being finalists on seven occasions – 1963, 1965, 1968, 1983, 1988, 1990 and 2013 – Benfica have never since won any European Championship. Before the 1990 final, which was played in Vienna, where Guttmann was buried,Eusébio even prayed unsuccessfully at his grave and asked for the curse to be broken.

And how people laughed when 1882 1882 suggested we were cursed.

Someone has sold his soul to the devil - fucking hell what a joke

I'd forgotten I had... I was too busy spouting conspiracy theories, no doubt!

Right then, fuck the ticker-tape on Sunday, it's booing your own manager, Swastikas and Zeig Heils from now on... THAT'S the kind of support that 'deserves' trophies!

Fuck the lot of them, hope they all fall in the Canal tonight!

Blatant
After what I witnessed on the tube today, it makes me shudder with anger that the same cunt if probably out there somewhere celebrating and singing more songs about gassing jews.

Fuck football

And look at you, creating an account on a Spurs community site to gloat about it. What a truly secure and fulfilled person you must be.
 
I think that the disrespect that the Europa league receives from many is pretty poor coming from us Spurs fans. Seriously.

Does no one else remember the first season we qualified for European football? We had such a long absence from it that it had made our heart grow much more fonder for it.

Not a dig at anyone, but I think that its only the fans that actually travel to these games who appreciate them a bit more.
