    Torino Build Up Thread

    If we say Pyunik would fit nicely into Division 1, where would you say Torino would be?

    They were only a few points behind AC Milan. Would AC be bottom half?

    This is a fucking decent side.

    It's a 55/45 call in our favour at best They are better than Watford, Bournemouth etc

    I'm guessing if they can finish 7th in Serie A, does that necessarily translate to 7th in the Prem? Probably a bit lower, so upper end of bottom half, maybe mid-table.

    It should be a pretty good tie all round. Exciting!

    I reckon Torino would be a 10th - 14th team in the Prem. This is no gimme.

    They'd be right in with us, Leicester, Everton, West Ham, and Watford.

    Agreed Alan. Probably at the bottom of our little group.

    Bookies had Wolves at 20/1 to win Europa and Torino at 50/1. Allowing for a bit of pro UK bias I'd still say that makes us marginal favourites. My big fear is 0-0 in Italy and then they nick an away goal over here. Right now I would take a win over Torino next week before a win over Man United as I think making it to the group stages would be a huge step forward for our club
    Prediction 24th January: 14 games to go: 6 wins, 5 draws, 3 defeats - final points 57 when the league finishes in May 2023...

    Who’s making the trip then?

    Too short notice to a rearrange people for work for me so hope we get to the group stage so I can go properly.

    Will be some loyalty points available for people who wouldn’t normally have a chance of going to.

    I am planning to do it. Should be ok for a ticket at 9am tomorrow. Will be checking the numbers throughout the day though to see where they are at.

    Hopefully I can get on the charter flight but I think that might be tight now. They were at 70% capacity before tickets went of sale.

    From what I saw of their home leg they play very, very similar to us - shape, style, the whole thing. Can't remember us having too many 'mirror' matches under Nuno (though I'm ill atm so brain prob not working) so this could be very interesting - CMs and WBs are going to have to win their individual battles

    Shifting Back to the original plan if I get a ticket then as Sports Options charter flight is full.

    "Update 16/08/19 @ 12.25 - This flight is now SOLD OUT. If you are interested in going on a waiting list for a possible 2nd flight, please email sales@sportoptions.com. Please state the number of seats you are looking for and provide a contact telephone number."

    You can get flights for £300 at the moment (one change to get to Torino) and you'd have to sort a hotel. But it's a plan C!

    Highlights from last night https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52h3PXeyJfY Surely the Torino goalie should have been sent off at the end?

    I think they'd make it pretty interesting. They have players that would certainly improve our rivals, if not us. Not sure how deep their squad goes, though.

    Am otherwise engaged on the 22nd, but probably couldn't have organised things (or afforded it) for the away leg.

    Unless we get absolutely hammered in the away leg (& no one has managed that since Nuno rocked up) then will be at the home leg on the 29th.

    Hopefully at least one away game if we get to the group stages as a bit longer to organise & save up
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    (paused for the moment, but hopefully to be continued)

    Might have to see if I could bother someone for the supporter number to get a ticket for the 2nd leg.

    All booked via Frankfurt and a sleep over at that airport. Flying from Manchester as even with car parking/fuel the flights work out over £200 cheper than flying from Brum. Clearly all those who couldn't be arsed to pay the Turin flight prices from Brum have hijacked the Milan flights and train option as those prices went beyond stupid as well.

    As I like to be lazy and the match tickets have to be collected from a Hotel in Turin...I am staying in that hotel on the Thursday. Gets rid of finding where i am staying then where the tickets are #efficient
