Tottenham have been drawn alongside Rubin Kazan of Russia, PAOK FC of Greece and Shamrock Rovers from the Republic of Ireland, in Group A of the Europa League.

The Russians should provide a stern test, but Spurs should surely progress from an ultimately weak group, even if they do use the competition to blood some youngsters.

We sense that the trip to Dublin against Shamrock Rovers, will prove to be a particularly popular away day.



  1. Quality – Spurs fan living in Dublin and Tallaght Stadium just down the road from me. Rovers could be a stern test if taken too lightly – they probably lower Championship standard so could cause an FA Cup style shock or two, and have a few decent players. Ronan Finn is a good creative midfielder. Good group for us though with Rubin being the strongest opposition and, as the article says, we should progress easy enough… hopefully.

  2. i think this is great news. keep all the first team out of this one. carroll, kane, bostock and townsend should be more than capable of dealing with this lot at least for the first leg of each game. if we go a goal or 2 down on agg then put on the big guns. save our 1st team for the league. this europa competition is pony really, lets concentrate on getting back into the cl. winning the europa wouldnt be bad for us tho eh?

  3. Over the moon with the draw was watching it live and when Rovers were drawn all I kept saying was pot a pot a pot a haha and it happened. Live about ten mins from Tallaght Stadium to be honest there is going to be such a massive demand for tickets I can see it being moved to the Aviva with a crowd of about 35/40,000 showing up. Cant wait!! all you Spurs fans across the pond come over to Dublin for the game will be a great occasion!! Plenty of beer afterwards in the city will be an amazing night 🙂 what a draw for Irish football really looking forward to the game!


  4. Im thrilled that we’ve drawn Shamrock, RTE are already speculating that the game will be moved to a bigger stadium to match the demand for tickets. Im not so sure we can take this draw lightly and play our kids for every game, though sending a weakened side out to Russia would seem a savvy idea
