    Alrighty folks here goes this waste of a tournament again. Really all these matches do is give me something to watch if I’m not at classes or doing homework or anything. BUT having said that, don’t wanna see the Napoli reserves mess around because we all know how Mazzarri feels about younger players, I really wouldn’t mind seeing Napoli take this tournament far and playing hard, but not at the expense of the scudetto race.

    We’re playing a team called Viktoria Plzen, from my perspective, that team sounds like a daughter that was blessed with illiterate parents. But to the country of Czech Republic they seem to be a top team. I’d prefer to see the backups get their playing time here to keep some match fitness, I know technically there's this made up coefficient that UEFA bolsters, but lets face it, if we bounced out of this tournament tomorrow, Napoli fans would just have to put up with the rivalry thread “Napoli hates Italy!” stuff and “Napoli are like their garbage men, can’t get the job done!”

    That’s their logo, looks like something drawn together in Paint

    That’s Napoli’s logo, looks like something drawn together from that old internet browser called Netscape



    So anyways on a brighter note all I know about Viktoria Plzen is that the hobbits of Barcelona faced them in Champions League, so they’ve played in that competition before so they might be decent. Not sure, don’t really know anything about them. Europa League just introduces you to funny named teams.

    I think Armero is cup tied, so we can’t play him here’s the roster for the Europa League
    Napoli squad: De Sanctis, Rosati, Crispino, Britos, Campagnaro, Cannavaro,Gamberini, Grava, Rolando, Behrami, Donadel, Dzemaili, El Kaddouri, Fornito,Hamsik, Inler, Maggio, Mesto, Zuniga, Calaiò, Cavani, Insigne, Pandev

    if for nothing else, maybe Mazzarri will play Insigne/Calaio, be very interesting to see that pairing. Would like to see Rolando get a chance as well.

    I think buying a couple cup tied players in January tells us all we need to know about how Napoli feels about Europa League, don’t care if we leave this tournament tomorrow!

    Having said that would like to see Mazzarri tinker with formations during these games and give younger players a shot. Maybe give some players who are flat out work horses a chance to stay match fit.

    But anyways more jokes about Viktoria Plzen, the name makes me thirsty for beer for some reason, oh yeah its created Pilsner beer, dunno what everybodys view on that is, but I guess they're pretty cool.

    So if we advance out of this stage, hopefully for prides sake, we play either BATE Borisov or Fenerbache. One team is from Belarus and beat Bayern Munich in group stages but couldn’t advance and Fenerbache pretty much is a turkish team that I hardly know about aside from every team playing catch up to Galatasaray.

    Best of luck to Napoli and don't lose at home!

    we do god awful against sides like that, lots of crosses to break down the bus, thats how Barca does it when every La Liga side aside from Real Madrid (actually they do too) parks the bus

    I think its gonna be Insigne-Cavani up top but knowing Mazzarri he may say "INSIGNE IS NOT EUROPA READY"

    idk why Behrami's picture is there considering hes not in the line up

    Probably gonna be Rosati in goal

    Rolando-----Gamberini-----Campagnaro

    ---Mesto------Dzemaili------Donadel------Zuniga--
    ---------------------El Kad------------------------
    ---------Insigne---------------Cavani------------

    meh, Cannavaro is better in the middle, but honestly its not a bad backline, Cannavaro would be better for the weekend game against Sampdoria, the league is higher priority right now
