I think we can all agree that the only fair option is to expel these cheats.  Also in the post brexit society, in a goodwill gesture, the first British team in Europe should get a by into the group stages.  Who ever that team maybe.

*facepalm*

Jeez, it is Hibs we are talking about right? No tie can be taken for granted. Won one European tie in almost 30 years, and that was in the Intertoto (Dinaburg).

At least half of those teams are already halfway through their seasons, eek.

I'd take IBV though, sitting second bottom of the Icelandic league right now after 9 games.

All are except Tre Fiore/Bala Town.

Best chance of progress must be either the winner from that tie, or the Faroese mob. I’d have KuPS as the one to avoid, purely from the point of view that the Finnish and Icelandic leagues are the best of that bunch, and unlike IBV, KuPS are having a good season.

Good luck to the Hibbees anyway. Potentially some quality away days there and you should progress comfortably enough.

Big Davey moved to KuPS after Hibs punted him in January. Not sure if he's still there and/or playing.

I was there.

Amadou Konte scoring a double is up there with my favourite Hibs memories.

I only went to the home game, but Dinaburg must be one of the worst teams I have ever seen. They kept trying to pass it out from the back, even though they had no technical ability and it pissed it down enough for there to be standing water on the pitch.

For such a terrible player, Amadou had his moments. Set up a winning goal at Tynie (by hitting the post with a sitter) and scored that "screamer" at Fir Park.

You would assume so but nothing is a guarantee with Scottish teams in Europe.

Assuming Hibs will win their first leg this will be a tough tie for them but a lovely away trip for the fans.

Got to be favourites for the first round, but the team from Greece look like no mugs to me...good trip though regardless!!

Asteras will be a good team. The Greek Superleague is better than our Premiership, and they’ve finished in the European places 5 times in the last 7 seasons by the looks of things.

That said, it’ll be a top away day. So will the Faroes. You lucky b*****ds.
