Now that champions league is secured.

Don’t think we should bother with the Europa league. Yeah it’s another trophy, but we over used our starting 11 and they all need a break.

Would give some of the young and fringe players a go.

Agreed. Definitely mix it up. We've got a walkover in the first game anyway. Would be great to see what Mjebri and Garner can do.

Give over.
Let's win a bloody trophy.
Would normally agree with you but I'm with Bojan on this one. First team has been ran into the ground. New season not far away.. They need a rest.

Why? So the first team save energy for the remaining zero league games?

Certainly gives us a chance to rotate and actually enjoy it as a fan base!
Don’t expect anything other than a second string against LASK but I suspect Ole would like to crown the season off with some silverware. I’d basically give the first team 2 weeks off now.

No, go for Europa league. We should try to win, 2.5 weeks before next game and after that good break between games.

The new season starts literally 2 weeks after doesn’t it? They all deserve a rest period before we start again.

Play the kids for the second leg then focus on trying to win a trophy. Would do Ole’s (and teams) confidence a world of good to win a major trophy.

Go for it, but rotate a bit more. I'd like to see a mix of youth and experience.

Yep, Europa doesn't really matter anymore. If we win it great, if we don't no big deal. Give the main players a workout and play some of them for the sake of entertainment though.

We have a glorified pre-season tournament, why not go for it.

Don't be ridiculous - they will get a break now and in-between the Europa games. Its effectively the quarter finals - why would you play a weakened side?

We should try and win it so we have better draw in the CL.

Against Lask play young players but after that it will be only a few matches that our hopefully rested starting 11 should win.

No chance. We want to win a trophy. We can rest the entire XI for the LASK second leg, which means they won't have to play again for 15 days.

Give over. We should want to win a trophy whatever it is. It's not like before when we were winning the league every other season. We should take what we can get and it will get some of these guys into a good habit who haven't won much/anything at all.

We need to win to be in 1st pot. Could help with group stages

We’re getting at least 30 days rest after last match in EL, regardless how far we go. I’d play a reduced squad for the first match, since we’re practically through to the next round, then assess the squad from there.
Its a good trophy, and our squad craves winning experience, would mean a lot for the future of the squad i think!

Depends, are we having a pre season? If not than we should use it to get ready for September.

No. We need a trophy or what Ole said is rubbish, also want to be in Pot 1.
