Anyone know when the fixtures will be put up? Desperate for a european away game and this could be my best chance considering prices for travel. Hopefully Ajax away, kill 2 birds and get stoned.

I think we only play Ajax at home. We will also play MSK at home and Hamburg & Prauge away.

Martin Jol is in charge of Hamburg, so we will play them away and get a 4-4 draw.

How do you know it will be Hamburg & Prague away? I really would love it if the Ajax tie was away. I work in Amsterdam Monday to Friday and I was praying for this draw! The Ajax Arena is only 15 mins walk from my hotel too! Happy days!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MSK_Zilina.........nice kit ! Hamburg- top of the bundesliga & undefeated at home. Slavia Prague - top of the league. Ajax - we all know about them , but they are not the force they used to be. 8th in the dutch league at present.
