    What was so wrong about what Fowler said, then?

    oh ok. I've already said what I thought of the match and how it went, it ties in to that.

    Fa Cup draw means whoever finishes 6th gets no Europa League next season.

    Cup draw means Europa League places will 99% only go to 5th now... great.

    I wish it was abolished altogether to be honest.

    The Europa League is a massive trophy.

    I think the Europa's been great this year, it and the league cup been very entertaining.

    It's just a big waste of time and effort. What does it do? What does it achieve? There's no money in it, it doesn't elevate the club's world standing in any meaningful way and you get to do it all again for free the season after?

    Spurs would have been a different side had we not thrashed a pitiful Inter on Thursday.

    Needs more prize money (even if that means taking some off the CL) and less teams in it. Seems so obvious.

    On the continent it's seen as a big trophy. And rightfully so.

    ...and matchdays need to be moved to Wednesdays.
  • Deleted user 10 March 2013 19:04:24
    Can't go on Weds given the cash cow is already there. Which is also why some clubs and fans don't give a shit about the competition as there's nothing in it besides winning a cup.

    So they can get even less money than they get now?

    The best idea is to just expand the CL and let league places 1-6 go into the draw.

    It's Europe's 2nd trophy, so is rightly something to win, but the disparity between the CL and EL is silly and the lack of cash means it becomes a low priority. Sad that it comes down to cash for lost clubs, but see also the FA and League cups.

    Been trying to find a random Adidas video from the past. One where Beckham etc. are all sitting trying to do basic tasks like put balls into holes in a table, but it is as if their hands are controlled by marionettes. Anyone remember which ad campaign this was part of?

    Don't think he was suggesting drawing the teams out a hat?

    Yeah I think he means top 6 goes into the CL draw (qualifiers or otherwise). It would be depressing but actually not too unlikely.

    Never understood why a fan would rather want their team finishing 4th than win a trophy.

    Yeah, I was surprised this wasn't the case (although I guess it goes against the whole "defending your trophy" thing).

    Always thought the Europa league should be a very quick Knockout cup with the top 4 teams getting into one of the groups of the Champions League. Play it over three days at the end of everyones season. Would be like a mini European tournament.

    That's basically what the qualifiers are though, just right at the end of the season rather than before the start of it.
