Europe - General 2016-17

Postby eujin » Wed Jul 13, 2016 5:10 pm

Gibraltan teams really are on the march this season. I thought it was embarrassing enough for Flora Tallinn and Pyunik to get knocked out in the previous round. Perhaps all this political talk about joining Scotland is just an attempt to break the stranglehold at the top of the SPL. The Scottish teams will need their UEFA coefficient points at this rate.

Quite amazingly, it seems that tonight's Hibs vs Brøndby match isn't on TV anywhere, not on Hibs TV, not on Sky Sports, no betting sites, no streams, nothing. Nobody is showing the match at all. It's like the 1980's all over again. :shock:

Pretty typical for games not involving the Old Firm sadly.

Hibs conceded a daft goal after about 10 seconds and then Neil Lennon was sent off after half an hour as Brondby won 1-0

Elsewhere Aberdeen beat Ventspils of Latvia 3-0 and Hearts took home a 0-0 from Birkirkara of Malta (and apparently redecorated the dressing room in their lunch thanks to heat exhaustion)

We have a local TV station here in Hanover, H1, and one of the things they like to show are the local amateur leagues around town and the various youth teams of Hannover 96 where there are often more cameras than fans.

Hibs have their very own TV channel, Hibs TV, and with 30,000 fans at the Cup Final at Hampden singing Sunshine on Leith you'd think there would be an outside chance that someone somewhere could show the match. One of the rumours on the Danish interwebs was that all the TV people in Scotland were too busy at the British Open filming the golf.

The Brøndby technical staff were filming the match for "tactical" reasons, so at least the fans got to see the goal: http://brondby.com/nyhed/2016/07/15/se-maalet-mod-hibernian-fc

Are you sure it wasn't on HibsTV because they have highlights up on their site?

If it wasn't it might be something to do with rights. I know the Aberdeen version usually only shows games to overseas fans as they don't have domestic rights to show the matches. Not sure what they do for Europa League though.

The Danish club put out a statement saying it wasn't being broadcast and fortunately I didn't invest in a Hibs TV subscription to check whether that was true, but this is what it says on the Hibs page.
Tonight’s Hibs TV broadcast will be audio only for all subscribers. A full match replay will be available to all subscribers following the match, with a Match Highlights package being produced post-match. Unfortunately we are unable to broadcast live from tonight’s game, apologies for any inconvenience caused.


There may be some weird rights issue, but I'd like to know what it is and it doesn't sound like Hibernian did a good job of explaining what it was to the Brøndby club officials who were trying to find a solution for their fans.

Plenty of opportunities to watch the return leg though: http://www.hibs.net/showthread.php?313235-Brondby-v-Hibs-Away-leg-live-on-TV

Okay Celtic fans, are you ready to face Astana?
Remember Aberdeen last year? It is time to get really excited. :smt109

So it's mid-July and already half the Scottish teams are out of Europe!

Celtic won 3-1 on agg against Licoln Red Imps and go through to face Astana of Kazakhstan

Aberdeen won 1-0 in Latvia to make it 4-0 overall and now face Maribor of Slovenia next week.

Hearts lost 2-1 at home to Maltese team Birkirkara and drop out.

Hibs won the game but went out on penalties to Brondby.

BFC Dynamo from Berlin are well known in Germany for having won 10 East German Championships in a row (thanks to help from the Stasi and the occasional penalty in the sixth minute of injury time) and also for having a major hooligan following (being also the only club to have had one of their supporters shot dead by police during a football riot). My experience of them was always that there were more police at their matches than actual fans, which was an odd experience after football in Korea.

On their wikipedia page, in both the English and German versions, it mentions that they are friendly with fans of Aberdeen FC. Anyone know anything about that? Their clubhouse has some interesting murals in it.

Hmm didn't know about that. I know the Aberdeen Soccer Casuals (ASC) seemed to think of themselves as something of a big deal in the world of hooligannery in the 1980s and had forged links with Tottenham casuals to go skull cracking so presumably it stems from around then? Dynamo Berlin put Aberdeen out the European Cup in 1985 so perhaps they had loads of fun bashing each other up and decided to join forces?

Talking of late, late goals, APOEL of Cyprus scored three times in injury time to knock Norwegian Rosenborg out of the Champions League. The last goal came in the ninth minute of stoppage time.

Celtic are through after a late penalty was enough to win the tie last night.

Aberdeen in action tonight and Johnny Hayes is missing so we're in trouble. Pretty nervous about this one...

Talk is cheap it seems.

If Denmark win the World Cup in 2018, I'll do my next two ROKfootball posts in just my undies.
