Who will win the Europa League ?

Post by S on Fri Apr 21, 2017 5:56 am

Personally I think this has been the most exciting EL in years, partly because my red devils team are in with a chance of winning it. Also great to see a team like Ajax in with a chance of claiming European glory after so many years. We also have a good representation of each of the 4 teams on GL here as well so some nice subplots to look forward to.

I think any team out of the 4 can win this thing. Maybe Celta are the underdog here but the other 3 teams should fancy themselves heavily to win this whole thing.

Who's your pick ?

Probably United though I don't mind seeing a team like Celta or Ajax winning it either.

lol this has been the weakest EL campaign since rebranding.

Has been a 1 horse race since it began.

I think this is where it stops for Celta. Hope I am wrong, I want them in the final (not because I am supporting them)

I think if they get United they havr a chance of going through. Not because United are bad but because they tend to do better against bigger teams. Ajax have already slapped left and right this season. Not sure about Lyon they seem to be conceding alot of goals though their attack may be too good for Celta

Manchester United, without a doubt.

José knows he has had a highly underwhelming season so smart as he is, he is banking to throw his cards onto the EL which will shun away from an average performance in the Premiership. And rightfully so as the EL deserves to be taken seriously and is prestigious even for United.

Terribly boring semis this time and rooting for Lyon all the way for the win.

I've been impressed a lot by Lyon, I think they are Man Utd's biggest rival. Otherwise, Man Utd.

Prefer facing Lyon in a two-legged semi fixture more than in a 90 minute final tbh.
But then I am worried at the prospect of facing Ajax in a two legged tie cos we always loose on Dutch soil these days.
Therefore ideally, a semi against Lyon and a final against Ajax would do I guess.

I do agree tho that this will be the easiest chance we will get to win a trophy we havent ever won. Will be hugely disappointed if we fail therefore.

I feel like the unfair prejudice against Man Utd strikers will have to stop soon and they'll stop facing superhuman midfielders, defenders and goalkeepers.

We beat every team over two legs no doubt but wouldn't be surprised to lose to Lyon/Ajax in the final. Lyon are hot and cold like we are, can be ridiculously good on their day or utterly shite the next against scrubs. I would prefer not to play them in the final.

I think the Veltman injury will help as Tete IMO is better. I think Ajax will beat MU but I am less certain about Lyon. Hope Van De beek plays over Schone!

This is the best crop of young players Ajax has since the 90's & Nouri, Eiting, De Jong, Sierhuis, etc are still in the pipeline ! And tete & klaassen are gonna be the only 2 people leaving next season - I want to see this Ajax in CHL & for that the Europa League trophy has to come home !

Man Untd has not yet met a serious team in this competition. Celta Vigo will eliminate them.

Ajax is by far the weakest team left. Lyon is going to bend them over backwards.

Celta are actually quite decent. Was hoping they would draw United.

United barely scrapping through Rostov and Anderlecht rofl They should be afraid of Celta because Celta is much better than those garbage teams that gave United problems.

Ajax destroyed Lyon 4-1 & could well have scored more. James once again completely destroying his credibility !
