Vital Villa: Europa Cup News

Aston Villa have today confirmed that they will be entering the re-branded Europa Cup at the 'playoff stage.'

Now strangely missing from the official site front-page, replaced by Jack Woodward's 'blog' about Tom Hanks, it was announced that courtesy of Everton's FA Cup appearance, we are now confirmed for the play-off stage.

When is a 'play-off' ahead of a group stage not a qualifier? Answers on a postcard to Mr Platini I think!

Villa will face a two-legged affair in August (20th and 27th.) Martin O'Neill will find out just who we will be up against on the 7th of Aug.

Europe here we come, again.

Let's wait for all the cracks about MON and the Europa cup from the guys - we know who they are. Waiting with baited breath - NOT.

The fact that this competition has been 'rebranded' proves that no one took the old Uefa cup seriously. Nor will they the Europa Cup. The Champs League is the only game in town. Everything else is for losers.

"This" competition isn't the only one that has gone through rebranding. the vaunted Champioins League used to be the European Cup. I'm pretty sure that was and is still taken seriously, we all want our team to be playing in it. Division one/Premier League, we all wanted to be in both. Europa Cup is where we can learn to walk before we run (to the Champions League!!)

Agreed Charizma, think how we would be humiliated in the CL next year if we'd kept 4th. I reckon that old saw "Softly, softly, catchee monkey" springs to mind. But hey, it's fun supporting Villa!!
