  1. Who Cares? says:

    Abolish the Europa League.

    Empty Stadiums.

    Few if anyone cares.

    • Christopher Harris says:

      I disagree. Just because there’s a small crowd at Anzhi doesn’t mean that there’s empty stadiums across Europe. My team, Swansea City, will have a full attendance tonight against St Gallen — just as one example out of the 24 games today.

      There’s a lot of people who care about the Europa League. The standard of competition has been increasing, and there were some fantastic matches last season. Give it a chance.

  2. TheDuke says:

    The group stages of both tournaments can have their awful moments but they can also have the spectacular. The reason Anzhi’s stadium is empty is because their owner had a nervous breakdown or whatever and sold off half their team and they play in a war torn region of Russia and are playing a thousand miles from home. My only “disappointment” is that the last two league games are going to be wholly meaningless in Spurs group. But hey it looked like AVB was recruiting his next signing so whatever
