The Magical Mystery Tour

6 05 2009

It almost goes without saying that thanks to our tumultuous triumph on Monday we face another fabulous trip to Europe. City will go into the Second Qualifying Round and the powers that be have decided that we can draw any club, there are no geographical restrictions. Thanks to some Dutch Bloke with a Phd in advanced statisitics and Wikipedia the Jet Set can exclusively reveal which clubs we can potentially draw at the end of June. We will be unseeded, so the clubs listed will be the seeded ones.

This information is of course based on the positions at the moment. (IN THE PRESENT ECONOMIC CLIMATE THIS INFORMATION CAN BE SUBJECT TO CHANGE);

The clubs that Bangor City that can draw are;

(Qualifying Position – Present Occupiers, # = Already Qualified)

3rd in 2008 Norweigan League – Tromso #
4th in Czech League – Sigma Olomouc
3rd in Swiss League – BSC Young Boys
5th in Romanian League – CFR Cluj
5th in Portuguese League – Sporting de Braga
Winners of Dutch European Playoffs – Groningen, Feyenoord, NAC Breda or Utrecht
4th in Scottish League – Dundee United
4th in Turkish League – Galatasaray
4th in Ukrainian League – Metalurh Donetsk
4th in Belgian League – Gent
Winners of Greek European Playoffs – PAOK, Panathinaikos, AEK Athens or Larissa
3rd in Bulgarian League – Cherno More Varna
Either 2nd or 3rd in Danish League – Brondby or Odense
Either 2nd or 3rd in Austrian League – Rapid Vienna or Sturm Graz
Either 2nd or 3rd in Serbian League – Vojvodina or Red Star Belgrade
2nd in Israeli Legue – Maccabi Haifa
2nd in 2008 Swedish league – Elfsborg #

2nd in Hungarian League – Ujpest Dozsa
3rd in Croat League – Slaven Belupo
Either 2nd In Cypriot League or Cup Winners – Omonia Nicosia # or Cup Winners
Slovenian Cup Winners – Koper or Interblock Ljubljana

Hopefully we will draw a club from a nice location. Who doesn’t want to go to the Wankdorf? Rapid Vienna would be charming, Red Star Belgrade less so. The Athenian giants or Gala on the Bosphoros could be interesting. The closer ones to Belgium, Scotland or Belgium would be convinient. Of all the options we favour; 1)  Tromso, due to the prospect of  perpetual summer sunlight causing delightful sensory confusion or 2) The Slovenian connection, due to the fact it’s in Slovenia and we’ve had a hankering for Slovenia for a while now.
