    You make a fir argument for a European “Super league” so the “top clubs” can battle against clubs with similar budgets.

    I know, i know…just what Europe needs, another football league.

    I abhor the European Champions’ League. It’s absolute tosh.

    The fact is, in the knockout stages, even with two legs, it’s a lottery. A lottery which a very average team like Liverpool, or a team who finished 4th in their national division like Arsenal, can come through at the expense of an actual Champion. The bloody thing is an absolute farrago, and the fact they give out the same cup that Ferenc Puskas and George Best won for it… WELL.
