Really tough draws allround this year, will be rough.

Champions league

Cork got The worst possible draw in Legia Warsaw. They had ambition to do damage, but I think that is that.

Crusaders got Ludogorets of Bulgaria. A hiding awaits.

Europa League

Rovers got a tough but possibly winnable the against AIK Stockholm. Seb Larsson should debut.

Dundalk got Levadia Talinn and should progress with ease.

Derry got Dinamo Minsk. They are beatable, but tough trip.

Glenavon got Molde of Norway. Could hit double figures.

Cliftonville got Norjjsdallen of Denmark and are likely to be humped.

Coleraine got Subotica of Serbia. No idea about them, but must have something.

Dundalk and maybe Derry and Rovers to progress. Damage limitation elsewhere.

Heard a few days ago that Legia Warsaw fans' website has many postings of fans who have family in Cork and so pay only for the flight.

He played against England on Saturday, hard for him to play.

Unfortunately you've been proven right on that score Cork have fallen at the 1st CL hurdle by falling to a sound 3-0 defeat this evening.
Could have been worse, Legia and Polish football arw a level above. They at least drop into the EL

Hard luck to Derry, they must have played very well to have been able to win away.

2-1 ft, so Dundalk through 3-1.

If you can , look for the Dundalk goal socred by Michael Duffy. Reminiscent of a goal scored by Marco Van Basten way back in the Euro 88 final .

I see Dundalk drew the Cyprian side AEK Larnaca.


Haven't heard anything about who Cork are supposed to play.
