Whatever happened to that Europa C competition?
Would love to see Everton take on some Cypriot relegation fodder side (& losing)
4 matches extra per team? So does this mean expanding groups from 4 teams to 5 and also adding another stage in the knockout round?
Gives the likes of juve more money who are one of the clubs who have pushed this idea
This could mean that teams in the CL maybe excused from playing in the league cup competition,.....maybe ?
Pretty sure I read this morning the idea would be a second group phase of four matches after the first group phase
Well that's just great. In the near future we're going to be looking at squads with at least 33 senior players. 3 matches every week. World cup, Euro, Euro Vs South America cup, Fa cup final in Seattle, Monstars vs All-stars in the summer.
Earth 1 Vs Earth 2 World cup. The sky is the limit. We're gonna create a time machine and bring back the 1982 Brazil team and play them against the 1994 Brazil team.
The 1994 would smash the 1982 team obv, non competitive
No chance. '82 team would school the '94 team.
Then we can have more vlogs from @Kay Age El
I know its @Kay Age El becuase he styles his hair like Christian Ericksen
Can we make a few stops and collate the best players to represent both NI and RoI and see how good they are?
OR, go back and stop whatever happened that led to the creation of two teams in the first place?
See there's money in it. Let's get it done!!!
Didn’t we have this before?
Fitness and ability wise they would get trounced
Yeah there used to be 2 group stages in the Champions League
Yeah I'm pretty sure they did this 2 group stage bollocks a while ago.
Ability, no. Fitness, maybe. So they would go on a Klopp preseason before hand and then unleash the amazingness.
I don't have a problem with its format but if it were to be re-jigged I think each of the top 5 leagues needs one less place (meaning quality of Europa League goes up) and you cut some of the spares from other leagues also. I would prefer it to have more knockout aspects than group for more surprises early on.
He may have a point, but the 94 team will be chasing shadows trying to get the ball from the 82 team. Also the 94 team will think that keeping them outside the final third will be enough and then Boom Boom, the 82 players start scoring with their long range efforts. All this as Socrates has a fag break at half time !!! Aaawwwww the 82 team, that team, i have tears in my eyes...
If we have to play another 4 games in the champions league, there is no way we'll ever see a first teamer near the league cup ever again.
