UEFA Planning Third European Competition

Something could get pretty rotten in the state of Swampland. . . it could just turn out even better than a particularly gory episode of "I, Claudius".
The only thing more entertaining will be our football..

Splitting the Europa League from 64 down to 32, with the champions league numbers remaining the same

Can’t be atsed reading. Is the plan to bring back some sort of cup winners cup or create a third tier competition?

Pretty much mate.

I think it's coming from the former top clubs struggling to get into the Europa league, or at least struggling to win it.

We can't have them winning nothing now can we?

If I understand it right, they're weeding out the crappier teams/leagues from the Europa League and giving them their own 'special olympics'. I might be misuderstanding it though.

So 96 teams will play in European competition. Teams finishing 8/9/10 in the PL to qualify? Imagine a lot of them won’t want to play in it and all that will happen is they will be glorified reserve outings, thus devaluing the competition from the off.

Another stupid, money driven, ill thought out idea from UEFA

Thanks mate.

Can’t wait to see the fifth team in the polish league to host the fourth placed Belgian team! One of those special European nights
