Sadly not. Think there's just too many games. Would be great if there was, even if just for British teams. 

Yeah don't see why they don't just have a selection then show the goals from the rest at HT or after the game

Is there a BT goals show for the Europa League?


This is probably not applicable for non-US people, but the CBS Sports Network is doing their "Golazo!" program (whip-around coverage focusing on goals) for the Europa League today, covering the entire four hours.  This is the first Golazo! program covering Europa; previously it was only presented for CL matches, and even then only for the late start matches.

Yes Sociedad looked very useful. Hope we dont draw them as it is a city & ground that I would have loved to have gone to 

San Sebastian is beautiful for sure. Went there last year for a day. Would love to go there for longer. And to take in some football in the process! 


Stadium recently redeveloped too.

At risk of starting the taking the knee debate again (it's mostly in the Championship thread, I think), I noticed they didn't do the ritual before the match last night. It wasn't even mentioned by the BT commentators or in the logos (although there is a BLM banner in the Kop). 


Is this an agreed Europa League directive or is it being phased out?

Probably kidding myself but anywhere where there's even the slightest chance we can go.



Depending on how long this travel ban lasts that might be a very short list.

Draw is Monday 14th December, 12pm :)




Only teams we can't be drawn against are Man Utd and Braga and any other seeded team from EL groups.

Also can’t be drawn against Brugge, Donetsk or Ajax.

Basically we’ll face anyone in blue.
