I think that it is bad luck for this to have its own thread. Especially as we don't have a round two thread yet.

DON'T THINK WE'LL BE WINNING 3-0 AWAY FROM HOME AGAIN!!!  I honestly hate playing the same sides even in our own league nevermind abroad.

Are Rijeka better than midtjylland? Doesn't look much between the two teams on paper, and if anything, the Danes have already started their season while this (I think) will be Rijeka's first competitive games.

From what I can see Rijeka have played two legit (ish) games, lost their super cup and won their first league game. Second league game this Saturday.

Probably not, but the huns have a better team than us and should overcome the Danes, so it'd have been nice for them to have had a much harder draw. I'm assuming that both they and us would be unseeded for the playoff game now though (I don't think we'll get through for what it's worth)?

So what do we know about Rijeka? Played two league games so far, winning both. Looked up their squad and I haven’t heard of anyone but that says as much about me as anything. I think they underestimated us last time and the shock 3-0 killed the tie, don’t expect that this time around.

Definitely a step up from the last 2 teams we've played there, however, any positive result away from home, a score draw even, and I think it'll be enough.
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

They've moved to a temporary home while their stadium is being rebuilt



Smaller capacity and not quite as picturesque as their old ground

I'm a man, and as a man I crave disappointment.

That's why I support Aberdeen Football Club & Scotland.

21 (YES TWENTY FUCKING ONE) year old Cosgrove to show what he can do when he is finally given a real chance.

Rijeka won 3-1 today, 3rd league in out of 3 but although early doors they’ve played the bottom 3 who have yet to gain a point. I think tomorrow will give us a real opinion on whether we are a legit team.

Anyone else booked up for this trip? I never went the last time but will be visiting another country that I've never been to before thanks to The Dons.  :thumbsup:

Afraid not mate but wish I was.
Going on holiday in four weeks time, so time away from work at a premium right now.
Have a great trip Tyrant  :thumbsup:

I will provide said pictures if I'm the one carrying the DT torch! Anyone know what our allocation will be? I know the club have asked interested parties to email them for tickets but haven't heard any other info at this point.

And it's Larnaca or Gent if we take care of Rijeka. Best we could have hoped for I think

Am I going mad or did we know who our potential opponents might be in Play-Off Round before losing to Real Sociedad, Kairat Almaty, NK Maribor and Apollon Limassol because one can't remember there ever being a time when we dreamed about possibility of beating those mentioned above and thinking right just X or Y to beat and we've made the Europa League Group Stages!!!!

We definitely did for Limassol, because they were a pish team. We knew that all we had to do was buy a striker that wasn't Stockley or some other pish then we'd have made the group stages - thus making the transfer fee back. Instead of going for Moult for a few hundred thousand more, though, we waited until after we were papped out and decided on £400K bargain Stevie May.
