Honest Opinions how do think the Group will pan out?

I think we'll just pip Feynoord to 2nd. Porto to win the group and YB to finish bottom. I suspect last night might be the only win YB will pick up.

Can see us losing the next 3 and winning at home to YB’s and finishing on 6 points. Last night was a huge opportunity and as some have said, will be last years Spartak I think.

Many strangely seem to think beating Porto is a foregone conclusion.
I don't think it's a conclusion but I think taking them at home is a possibility.

We turned over Feynoord well, who in turn beat Porto, who beat Young Boys, who beat us.

Nothing is a given in this group.

I think we'll finish on 7 points. Beating Young Boys at Ibrox and drawing with Porto at Ibrox. Nowt away from home.

Europe is a strange one for me. Qualification would be great and I always want us to win when we play but nothing can get in the way of us winning trophies this season. So qualifying would be nice but not at the price of re-gaining a trophy.

Won't qualify. Missed a massive opportunity last night. We'll need to beat Feyenoord at the Kuip or something like that. That's if we're still in it at that stage.

We'll finish third.

I'm thinking win both remaining home games qualify via a better head to head than someone

Thoughts?
IMO the group is a diversion we’re in and will earn about the same cash as last year,still want to do well, but not raging about last nights freak loss, go on and hammer the accies I’ll be content

Draw at home v porto, 2 away defeats then another draw at Ibrox v the swiss (although we should really pump them as they are awful).

Cloggers to win their next 3 and qualify before facing porto in a shoot out for top spot / meaningless game as Porto will be on 10 points by then also.

3rd for us.

Young boys finish last

6 points for me.

Can't see us taking anything from Porto over there, nor at home to them, unless they play some kids/resevers. Same for Feyenoord, think the atmosphere over there will get to us and we'll beat Young Boys at home possibly.

Yesterday was the ideal game to solidify our qualification. You'd only be looking at 1 more win and you'd probably be through.

I think it's more than there for the taking, as I don't think anyone will run away with it and we are more likely to get decent results against the perceived harder teams going on historical experience.

That said, there's also historical experience that suggests we'll probably make a rip-roaring James Hunt of it too...

I don’t think we will qualify. Too slack at the back, not clinical enough up front. Third maybe.

Think we are looking at 5 - 6 points now. Can't see us winning away at Porto or Feyenoord. If we can win our home games we are obviously in with a shout but I'm not confident.

In Europe, we don't do Groundhog Days, we do Groundhog fc_uk ups, and last night's two step was as spectacular as any in recent memory.

So for me, it's going to be the same old scene.

If however, we can get over that shambles from last night and instead come through qualifying, then maybe the footballing Gods are giving us the semblance of a smile.

Said at the start we would get 7 & after last night I stand by that. But I doubt it will be enough for qualification. I’d be shocked if Feyenood and Porto don’t take 6 points from YB.

Porto and Feyenoord will win the double headers against us and young boys which pretty much sees them through.

Only hope is we can draw v Porto or draw 2 draw v Feyenoord tht would maybe have a us a slight chance.


If someone offered me right now last game of the group beat young boys to go through I would bite there hand off for it

You need to win games in the groups to qualify, draws are no use, that’s why I think we continued to go for it last night.
If any of the others draw it will help.

Many strangely seem to think Porto will wipe the floor with Us and are World Beaters too.

Are they fck.

They are NOWHERE near the team We faced when McLeish was in charge.

Some amount of Panty Wetting on here re them.

The same Porto who've made the knockout stages of the Champions League the last 2 seasons?

Kindly stick that wank phrase up your arse.

I think we're still just a wee bit short of the quality needed to get out of the group, too many lapses at the back and too wasteful in front of goal at the big moments. We'll put up good solid performances but those things will hinder us getting the results we need.

Want to be wrong, but I can't see this side picking up anything in Porto or Rotterdam.

Last night was the best chance of away points and we f.ucked it.
