    No surprise that you're undecided, cause it's clearly a mixture of the two.
    Like most things in life it has positive and negative sides to it,
    I'm with Jordinho in the thought that if not in the CL I'd rather be in the EL than not involved at all.
    A season outside of UEFA competition is a poor one.

    At the moment we're ranked by UEFA as the 19th best club in Europe.
    We were 16th, ahead of Dortmund, PSG and City before last round.
    Still ahead of teams like Liverpool, Juventus, Ajax, PSV, Sporting, Napoli etc.

    No doubt in my mind that the Europa League has helped us build as a club and grown our recognition around Europe.
    UEFA are always talking us up as one of the giants of the tournament, and always refer to us as the first ever UEFA cup champions when there's a draw.
    We all want to be in the Champions League, but it's unrealistic to believe we'll be there every season.

    Always want to see Spurs in Europe every season, obv prefer CL, but EL is better than nothing.

    Apologies to the original poster, but it did make me smile at the time. There was a suggestion made that we should forget about the EL this season and concentrate on winning the domestic cups....which grant you entry to the Europa League!

    The sooner the EL winners get a CL spot the better, does it apply from the 2014-15 winners onwards?

    Uncanny draw though

    Had a funny feeling we would get either Porto, due to the AVB link, or Ajax because of the Vertonghen and Eriksen link.

    Never realised Ramos was boss of Dnipro. That probably would have been 3rd choice prediction had I knew at the time

    Ukraine appears to be on the brink of a revolution. What's UEFA's plan B if that happens?

    Who knows, behind closed doors or maybe at a neutral venue?

    Looking at UEFA's club rankings, we're likely to move up soon. While we've had four decent seasons in Europe, a number of clubs above us have been poor in recent seasons - Inter, Lyon, Valencia. In the next year or so, they'll lose some big numbers off their point totals.

    If we are able to finish in the coveted fourth spot, we'd definitely be a second seeded CL club. Valencia, Milan, Schalke, Inter, and Lyon are unlikely to make Champions League next year. Even Dortmund are in a battle and we're just nicely astern of them. If ManCity were to be bounced this round by Barca, and we beat Dnipro, we'd move ahead of them.

    It's easy to dismiss the value of Europa League, but we've moved up nicely in the rankings by putting in some good efforts lately. But one of those tough choices will come up soon should we beat Dnipro. The anticipated matches against Benfica would come in the midweek days before and after our PL games with Chelsea and Arsenal. Let's hope we're healthy and hearty in March.

    Any reason why Nabil Bentaleb isn't listed in Tottenham's Europa League squad?

    From what I understand Bentaleb has now been with us for two years (this january) and is still U21 player,
    hence can be added to the B list the day before the game.
    Had to be on the A list if we wanted to use him in the group stage, but now qualify for B list

    Veljkovic has not been with us for two years yet, and as you can see he¨s now registered on the A list

    Reading this piece from the fighting C O C K You'd think this is from some oldie whinging about modern football but it's actually from a 23 year old student. Makes some good points that even I'll accept.
