The UEFA Cup is worthless and the Europa League
will be even more so.

It's ridiculous that teams like Liverpool who haven't
won a League in 20 years play CL football. Then again,
the European Cup wouldn't work that well now. Back
in the day teams from smaller countries looked after their
talents rather than selling them to the Big 3 Leagues, examples
include Marseille, Ajax and Red Star Belgrade.

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.
I loved the second group stage, I hate that
December-Febuary no CL period.
