Newcaslte draw Metallist from Ukraine in the Europa League last 32.
Probably the easiest team to play against on paper. The unseeded teams were, in general, better than the seeded teams imo.

Believable2 Unbelievable5

AC has played for 2 teams already thsi season so UEFA rules mean he cannot play for a third, so unless he comes in the summer thsi is dead in the water.
However, I woudl take a punt on Downing. He was good and would be better than Jonas down the left and is a Toon fan I think.

Agree0 Disagree22

Wrong post son.

Agree7 Disagree0

To be honest I would not want either, AC for whatever reason left the toon for probs more cash etc...and not too many players return and make it, Beardsley excluded...Downing in my mind is one over rated player...spend money elsewhere!!

Agree8 Disagree5

Kharkiv are far from an Easy draw, this team has European pedigree and will fancy their chances.

Kharkiv fully expect to be in the latter stages of the Europa league and if we get past them it will be by a 1 goal margin.

Agree3 Disagree2

Any ideas about the best way to get to kharkiv ????

Agree0 Disagree0

I would say by aeroplane :-)

Downing... Are you insane!

we've drawn metalist! possibly one of the easiest teams, i don't really care about europa league but it would be nice to win a cup this year especially if we get some more quality players in! quite excited, but cant get complacent.

Believable3 Unbelievable2

If the toon were the only team in it, we still wouldnt win nowt,probs own goal against ourselves scored by Willotree?

Agree3 Disagree2

Dont underestimate very good team esp at home efc fan.

Agree4 Disagree2

Their striker Taison will tear our defense apart.

Just heard this rumour! dont know if any truth in it but sounds like it might carry some water!

Liverpool have made an enquiry about Ba and are offering carroll and downing to secure his signature!

I know carroll has been told he is free to leave and we are always gonna be linked to him but the downing thing is new!

any thoughts?.......spenny mag

Believable6 Unbelievable8

Downing would be a very decent signing, would be happy with him and carroll, but never heard this rumour, whats your sources?

Agree3 Disagree9

A goalscorer who can't score and a winger who can't assist. would rather not

Agree10 Disagree5

So our top scorer in exchange for a non-scoring perma crock, hoofball magnet and Downing, who Liverpoool fans boo every time he plays. Who would be stupid enough to sanction that? Then again look who our manager is.

Agree6 Disagree2

Yes of course a 20 mill and a 35 mill player for one that;s 7.5 mill lol that's funny

Agree4 Disagree2

They paid 25m and 35m doesn't mean they are worth that just as Ba is worth more than his buy out clause, Liverpool want shot of them and reputedly Ba wants to leave us
Downing has been decent in the past at Villa and Boro but been piss poor at Liverpool
But I doubt LFC would swap those two for Ba but who knows?

Agree2 Disagree1

We can't use carroll because he's already registered for 2 teams this season it'd be a scam if we got him and the less said about downing the better

Agree5 Disagree1

Loans do not acount as being signed for 2 clubs within a year.

eg. Sigurdsson on loan at Swansea and sold to Tottenham

Agree3 Disagree0

Registered is a different thing to signing it doesn't matter if its a loan or a sale he still has to be registered

Agree3 Disagree0

Downing at 28 dont think he will be much use

Agree0 Disagree0
