      Europa League 2023/24 QF and SF draw
      Mar 15, 2024 12:02:48 pm
      Quarter finals:
      AC Milan v Roma
      🔴 Liverpool v Atalanta
      Bayer Leverkusen v West Ham
      Benfica v Marseille

      Semi-finals:
      Benfica or Marseille v 🔴 Liverpool or Atalanta
      AC Milan or Roma v Bayer Leverkusen or West Ham


      Atalanta...good draw. Avoided Leverkusen for Semi-final, if they beat West Ham.

      Beat Atalanta 5-0 away but they got an unlikely 2-0 win at Anfield. Empty ground due to Covid and I doubt we were fully up for it. Champions league.

      Brilliant draw, Atalanta will be f***in bricking it, did you see the look on their officials faces 🤣🤣🤣, we ain’t losing that, then it’s Benfica or Olypique Marseilles and a trip to Dublin’s fair City, where cockles & mussels are apparently bountiful, washed down by lashings of the black stuff, get yer champers on ice ppl, I’m booking the ferry as we type 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      Great chance to reach the final there for the reds against possibly the (currently) invincible Leverkusen.  Although I'm sure the magician Moyes will want to have a say in that. 

      We really should get past Atalanta/Benfica/Marseille.

      Can't ask for much more. We got the easier teams on our side of the draw. We play up to our abilities we should be booking a place in Dublin. Personally I just wanted to avoid West Ham for the fact I dislike playing other English teams in Euope

      I fancy our chances to get to the final...and win it ( I'm guessing we're favourites to win it?)....but it seems to me there are some on here almost taking it for granted; there's a lot of competitive football between now and Dublin. Cup competitions are like Who wants to be a Millionaire...The further you get the harder it gets!

      Good draw. Do the job at Anfield is the best way to manage it.

      Could end up being the first time the two finalists of this competition are stronger than the two that make the CL final.

      Isn’t that the truth but only if yer not Liverpool, so who do fear longy? would it be Atalanta ? Or is it Benfica ? Or the cheese eating surrender monkeys from Marseille, could it possibly be the bubble blowers ?
      Leverkusen are probably the only side who could cause a upset but then inexperience could get in their way,

      Correct, isn’t life a bi*ch ? Especially when yer rivals are hoovering up titles and tin right under your noses, but have no fear Keith you might have the brilliance of Southgate as yer next out of his depth manager , if Sir Jimmy gets his way, they say football is cyclical, how ironic then that Dave Brailsford is peddling in yer backyard 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      To answer your question all you need to do BTR is read my opening sentence: "I fancy our chances to get to the final, and win it."
      I was casually making the point that it get's harder as you progress further...My faith in JK and the team is, like your's, solid and unwavering.
      Have a great evening.

      Would be an idea. She's trying to arrange a few days down there if we get to the final. We had our honeymoon in Dublin believe it or not.Less said about that the better.

      As I said registered with Uefa...and they asked me for my passport number....feck's sake. Fingerprints and DNA print out next.

      Well I don't know how much the tickets will be. Obviously I would pay the face value price. That wouldn't be a big issue for any fan I would think. It's the final and you pay the price-end of.

      But I would never buy from a tout or pay over the odds. Chance of me getting a ticket are very low as I don't attend any home games, as I live in in N. Ireland.

      Last year ticket prices were 40 Euros for disabled people with one carer free entry. Other tickets were 65 to 150 Euros each. Clubs got 15,000 tickets each, and the allocation process of these tickets was organised by the clubs involved.Plus an allocation will be for UEFA fans worldwide.  The Aviva Stadium in Dublin holds 51,000. Last year in was in Budapest with a 63,000 capacity.

      The winners will play the winners of the Champions League in the Super Cup.

      Yes last year it was 15,000 each and about the same for the UEFA worldwide fans. A total of 46,000 odd. The rest went to "Local structure, UEFA and national organisations, commercial partners and broadcasters".

      https://www.uefa.com/uefaeuropaleague/news/0280-17d420f38593-9047b1ddfb2b-1000--applications-closed-for-europa-league-final-tickets/

      13,000...if we make it we could probably sell double that. Got to get there first.

      On this one I disagree wholeheartedly, you’d fill the stadium with your own fans and more if you make it. I honestly think there will be major major problems if the likes of Leverkusen join you in the final. Unless contingency plans are set up Liverpool fans are going to have a nightmare on this one.

      Wise words. 51,000 is not a lot for a Euro final. And yes we could fill the stadium. The nightmare in Paris in '22 V Real Madrid will never be forgotten.

      Still I'm sure this final will be handled professionally by the Irish FA. 13.000 is obviously not enough for us.Probably be enough for most.

      Wise words. 51,000 is not a lot for a Euro final. And yes we could fill the stadium. The nightmare in Paris in '22 V Real Madrid will never be forgotten.

      Still I'm sure this final will be handled professionally by the Irish FA. 13.000 is obviously not enough for us.Probably be enough for most.

      Think about it? It’s Klopps last game ( for now!) it’s in Ireland which also has many wool scousers over there. 😂 Even that daft kunt across the water will be there.   :lmao:  Just remember I told you so if you make the final. 😉😂

      Never quite understood the logic to have these smaller stadiums for finals. 

      Obviously a lot of backhanders going to UEFA but you would think they would learn their lesson. 

      The two teams that reach finals in all three of the European competitions are going to either be a) big clubs or b) (in the case of the conference league) teams that are likely reaching their first ever European final so will no doubt have a big contingent of fans/locals attending.

      Most of the allocation is for corporate anyway, so a 50,000 stadium is probably only going to have about 25,000 going to clubs supporters max.

      The conference thing West Ham won was a proper piss take. 20,000 capacity or so of which I think each team got about 5,000 tickets. The allocation in these events shows where UEFA's priorities lie i.e. overwhelmingly with corporate sponsors and the like.

      Well I don't know how much the tickets will be. Obviously I would pay the face value price. That wouldn't be a big issue for any fan I would think. It's the final and you pay the price-end of.

      But I would never buy from a tout or pay over the odds. Chance of me getting a ticket are very low as I don't attend any home games, as I live in in N. Ireland.





      Don’t give a sh*t about a ticket, why waste all that money when you could spend it on Guinness and still soak up the atmosphere, which will be unbelievable, yes you can’t beat being at the match but for a major final tickets will be extortionately expensive and not truly worth the experience, whereas you can still feel apart of the same euphoria watch the match on a big screen, with a  great view with hundreds of fellow Reds, for a fraction of what a ticket will cost, no brainer for me !!

      Last year ticket prices were 40 Euros for disabled people with one carer free entry. Other tickets were 65 to 150 Euros each. Clubs got 15,000 tickets each, and the allocation process of these tickets was organised by the clubs involved.Plus an allocation will be for UEFA fans worldwide.  The Aviva Stadium in Dublin holds 51,000. Last year in was in Budapest with a 63,000 capacity.

      The winners will play the winners of the Champions League in the Super Cup.

      Our last final was at a stadium with 80,000+ seats. It turned into a fiasco.

      The stadium was awarded this final, as compensation for missing out on hosting the Euros in 2021. We've had games many times there before, there's never been any issue. And we won't be short of support, if the Scousers can't make the short hop across the water, the local element of the fanbase will comfortably make up the shortfall. In terms of a European final, it's about as close as we can get to being at home.

      It could easily be Liverpool v Roma again. In that case, the build up will probably focus on recalling events from the last time the teams met, rather than the scoreline.
