say if we won the CL and city won the uefa cup (not that im wanting them to) we would end up with them in the super cup.

just thinking it would actually make the comp worth winning for once?

views?
The UEFA cup is before the CL final though, right?
So wanting City to win anything before we have won it could be a bit dodgy.
Obviously player City in something like the Super Cup could be quality,
Id rather City went 34 years without winning anything.

yeah im not debating that 34 years would be better im just saying if i went to you in 1999 we would be playing city in the super cup final in 10 years time as they just scrapped past gillingham in the league 2 play off final what would you have said

just thought it was a bit wow
well it would be a bit 'wow'
Obviously if they did win the Uefa it would be shit, but if we won the CL and got to play them, then I reckon the game would be great (if it ever got to happen), which it wont lol

Na i went milan with my boss and my pal for monaco. was only £4 something for the ticket tho, shows how lil interest the super cup has.

need to find someone to go porto with now. hard times in the credit crunch to get someone to travel with
you get sorted with tickets?
Im headin to the home tie myself.
My ST holder fella misses a lot of games so he cant apply for the aways :rolleyes:

hmmm na i like the uefa cup, gives smaller teams a chance to do euro aways. and euro aways a great. like say if fergie left and we become a mid table side pushing for a europe place. actually just say we was like fulham in 10 years. any euro away is better than no euro away. gives smaller teams a chance basically
unless youre Martin O'Neill of course :whistling:

didnt know the inter toto was still going :confused: :D
huh? The Uefa cup will be called the Europa cup from next season onwards. Its just an attempt to revamp it, put more money in etc.

dont they get automatic qualification into the champions league? not 100% on that but im sure city will take it
No they dont. THey win the cup and thats it as well as whatever prize money is on offer.

Yes, they do.

I was thinking, say Arsenal win the Champions League but
Aston Villa beat Arsenal to 4th place, then Man City win
the UEFA cup, would SIX English teams be playing Champions
League football?
No they stopped that.
Its 4 max Peejay.
See my post above. Uefa winner does not get automatic qualification into the CL.
and if Arsenal won it and Villa came 4th, Villa still wouldnt qualify for it.
They changed the rule after the time Everton got 4th.

yeah yeah i read up on that. i thought u was saying if his united manager he wont have to worry cause were to good for the uefa/europa cup. my bad didnt understand

oooo well i guess it just offers teams a euro day out and some cash and a super cup place then so not much. bonus for the fans if anything. but still will do city a massive favor because it will end years of hurt
thats what I was saying actually lol. I just misundertood your post after it.

but you are right. Some clubs never get to do Euro aways so fair play to them if they get in.
even fulham have a good chance to get in next year. That would be great for a club like them.

Yeah, I think they had a difficult draw though.

Aah I miss the second group stage.
It was Villareal and they were robbed from going through. Collina of all refs made a bad mistake or 2.

I thought the second group stage was pointless. Too many dead games in that one, especially when team x was already through and they could play a crap team against team y. It just wasnt fair. The present format is much better with the knockout stages.

Id feel so sorry for everton or Villa if they did finish 4th and for Arsenal to win the CL. Unlikely but ya never know. The 'right to defend your own crown' debate doesnt quite wash with me. If you can win the CL and NOT finish in the top 4 of your league you dont deserve to have the chance to retain it.
