Saints Will Play Vitesse
Friday, 17th Jul 2015 12:16

Saints have been handed a tie against in the 3rd qualifying round of the Europa league as we begin our first European campaign in 12 years.

After a draw that was so mind numbingly boring it made me think that qualifying was too much trouble, Saints were drawn with Vitesse with the first match being played at home.

This is probably the hardest match we could have received in the group although from the point of view of travelling the easiest.

If we get through lets hope our luck in draws gets better than this round. Effectively playing the strongest team we could get and at home first (think away would have been better). On the up side the management should know a fair bit about them, and as you say a nice trip (depending on result of course!!!). Think ROKO managed Vitesse early on assume this is known as the magic of the cups!!! Anyway the adventure begins!!

We won't underrate them at least. I'm confident we'll rise to the occasion; something I wouldn't be so sure about if we were playing one of the so-called poor teams in the competition

Probably a blessing in disguise.

No point spending the entire season getting to a final and then finding you're up against the favourites only to get beaten.

Far better to play the favourites early and if we lose, we haven't wasted our time.

Or beat them and know that they are out of the way.

SaintPaulVW - superb comment. Loved it although not necessarily your taste in cars!

We Brits seem adept at turning defeat into victory so wait for the word "heroic" to get trotted out.

Strange too that we are going Dutch yet again. Do you suspect tag Katherina has a cunning plan to join The Erdedivision?
