For the very best coffee, Shamrock & Thistle in Stonehaven. They do authentic crepes too.

I've never been a coffee drinker, only the occasional Espresso when in Europe. I now drink a cup every day, from the beans that we get from there. The boy's just a total coffee enthusiast. I've tasted from Guatemala, Panama, Ecuador, Columbia, Kenya, Peru, Tanzania etc. etc. So good.

Not quite. 10 groups for the normal qualifiers. Top two from each group qualify. If any of those teams are due to take part in the Nations League playoffs, their playoff place will fall to another, non-qualified, team from the Nations League.

Why do only some teams get to play for the right to get one of the four play off spots?

There's 55 teams in the 10 groups but not 55 teams in the European Nations.

First line edited because it'll be deemed as racist

What's the odds if it's a girl they call it Diana?

It doesn't matter now anyway because we have a new royal baby to look forward to.

Opened in 1887 (older than Celtic)

No word of a link to the Viennese one.

Pretty sure they're independent but this one opened in 1876: -

Trotsky and Freud amongst its famous patrons.

I'm sure they would have thought this through but how many groups in the real qualifying, how many teams per group, how many in the competition proper and how many play offs? I'm guessing there may be room for a 3rd placed team (from the groups proper) to make up the 16 teams who play-off, assuming that is the intent.

Not quite. 10 groups for the normal qualifiers. Top two from each group qualify. If any of those teams are due to take part in the Nations League playoffs, their playoff place will fall to another, non-qualified, team from the Nations League.
