Zenit st Petes, tough draw, freezing conditions,4G pitch, they have some hard nuts playing for them and really racist fans, villas boas left them because the fans were trying to nut him, horrible crowd.

Agree2 Disagree2

They've given Mancini some serious financial backing too. Tough gig.

This is a really tough draw and unless the board are going to stop talking about ambition and actually be ambitious in recruiting what we need this will be a home and away gubbing.

If we get the players to improve us it will still be a big ask, but if we don't were fecked.

Over to the board.

{Ed007's Note - Zenit will be 2 months into the Russian league's 3 month winter break when we face them, it's an ideal time to play them imo.}

Not the easiest draw but also not the hardest either! Good to play someone a bit different! But if we don’t sort our defence out January we’ll have no chance!

Time to burn my old Zenit top I got about 9 year ago.

{Ed007's Note - You could make a half n half top out of it, Stevie. ;)

We could do with a 3 month break ourselves Ed 😁.

{Ed007's Note - I'm hoping that after our players get a rest during winter break and some tweaking during the January window by the time we play Zenit we are back to our best and they'll be struggling for match fitness and sharpness.. I think the draw could have been a lot worse for us although the travelling is a bit of a drawback.}

The Zenit stadium has a roof and a constant temp of 18 degrees. No problem with the weather.

Weathering the storm may be a problem but the weather won't.

There wasn't ever going to be an easy draw - considering our current status and performances in Europe - and it is as tough as hell.

{Ed007's Note - Viktoria Plzen would probably have been the easiest draw for us and IF we do manage to get through I'd take the winner of the Plzen v Partizan tie in the next round. See how easy it'll be to get to the quarter-finals lol

Travelling shouldn't be an issue 3hr 20 from London Just trying to talk the wife into letting me go won't be any colder than travelling through Galashiels yesterday 😬.

{Ed007's Note - 3hrs 20 on a plane - screw that!}

Initial reaction was oh no until i read your comment regarding them being on their winter break Ed so now im quite happy with the draw. January can't come quick enough for us a good rest and a few ins and outs will do the trick its pretty obvious where we need to strengthen and i hope the board back BR.

{Ed007's Note - I'm sure the board know Rodgers will be looking to strengthen in January and I don't see why they won't back him.}

Definitely doable. Recharge the batteries, invest in the defence, and hopefully be too much for them at home in the first leg. If we play a blinder and win 4-1 or something then there's a chance. Their stadium looks a cracker. 67,000 and close to the pitch so should be some atmosphere in there especially if they have the roof on. So hopefully the players won't be over awed by it.

Can't be any colder than your Mrs shoulder either Welshy :-D.

11 Dec 2017 17:19:46
How did they perform in the Champions league?

11 Dec 2017 17:54:45
Welsbhoy! Travelling through my neck of the woods then! We call Galashiels “Dirty Gala” down this way!

Seems they were straight into Europa, topped their group with 5wins. Id like to think in a group of sociedad Rosenberg n Vardar we'd do the same but thinking n doing are somewhat different.
