Potential second round opponents if we get through first round.

NK Domžale (SVN) or Balzan FC (MLT)

CS Fola Esch (LUX) or FC Chikhura Sachkhere (GEO)

FC Viitorul (ROU)

FK Cukaricki (SRB) or FC Banants (ARM)

FK Buducnost Podgorica (MNE) or JK Narva Trans (EST)

No easy trips in there for fans and some potentially difficult ties for the team. Would think Romanian, Slovenian and Serbian sides will all be decent.

You can fly direct from Aberdeen to Malta very cheaply. Weegie fakers might have a tougher trip.

I'm booked for ROPS. Flying via Helsinki. Charters are all very well but they're usually fucking extortionate.

I was assuming that the Slovenian team will beat Balzan and that the Georgian team would beat Flora Esch.

Not saying that the teams there will be easy to get past but if you compare it to burnley last year im sure none of them are on that level. Which is a positive.

Georgia and Luxembourg it is. From a logistical point of view, preferably Luxembourg. Best draw we could have got I think. Just need to beat Rudolph & Co first.

I actually think that the Luxembourg outfit will be margarinally better.

My friend thinks it is my 'perfectionist obsession' and 'madman thought process'  stemming from our brain injury at birth that is to blame for what I'm about to say but does anybody else just hope when it comes to these games especially at Home that we don't embarrass ourselves???????  I know the team back in 2009-10 wasn't maybe as good as those between 2014 and the present day but I still can't watch highlights of Sigma Olomouc 5-1 horror show.  Was it true Mark McGhee took them so lightly that he only brought players back less than a week before first leg?????

McGhee was just a fucking idiot. And seemingly not a well man despite no known brain injuries of his own.

We were much poorer then. I remember we were lucky to get into the top 6 let alone get europe. If memory serves we had just lost a bunch of key players and needed a total rebuild. While you could draw parallels to now, the team we have at the moment is argueabley a young up and coming team with lots of potential.

Anybody got the starting XI from that Sigma Olomouc game so I can see how bad it was?????  If one were to play Fola Esch again are we any better or worse from three years ago???  Can't believe how close elimination felt that evening in Luxembourg.  I see our Finnish Friends are about thirteen games into their season.

The Vast majority of DNAers won't get a ticket either. My mate has bought us two for the home end.

We're going via Helsinki  :thumbsup:
