Another weird European format this season. This is almost designed to be unexciting with the bye weekend, the long gap until the final group game and the French teams presumably not taking it seriously. The Champions Cup group stage is even worse - 2 pools of 12 and 4 games :roll:

To he honest, the URC seems like it will be much more competitive and interesting.

Can't help feel that,once again,a Scottish club getting a raw deal-what's with starting with two away matches? By the time the home games come suspect the French will have lost interest.
Or is this just Scottish paranoia?
(Reverse those fixtures and much more interesting!)

I've been looking for an excuse to go to the new LI stadium. Be just my luck if it clashes with the LS / Richmond derby on the 15th . . . :( :(
