Lost in the 1/4 final but managed to play in the final?

Assuming the 'shield' is like going into the Europa league when getting knocked out of the champions league. Not the main prize.

Overall it sounds like we have a good bunch of youngsters coming through and by all accounts these guys can fully compete with the youth of the big guns.....

Good touch by the owners to support this too.

It's the same format as rugby sevens. There's the main trophy and then there's the shield underneath. It's like a cross between a 3rd / 4th place play off and - as someone above said - going in to the Europa League if you go out the CL early.

Basically, all teams start equal but instead of just going home, the lesser ones get to compete with themselves for honours once they're "out."

Noticed Pierre Larrauri got involved again, I wonder if he'll get his chance next season?

If he progresses as expected he should be a superstar according to the youth team coaches.
