    A fair summary, but one that leaves out one highly important factor. Money
    The Uefa cup, under whatever name it goes is certainly a poor relation to the Champions League, but what UEFA have proved themselves superbly capable of doing is generating cash through sponsorship and TV deals. But almost all of this money is pumped into the Champions League. The UEFA Cup is not just the second division, but is second rate. You cannot even predict which TV channel is going to pick up each match. It is no wonder that some teams have felt it is the UEFA Cup that needs to be ignored when their Premier League place is also on the line.

    But if UEFA can go out and sell the UEFA Cup, or Europa League as a truly worthy second competition (and why not, it always has more than a handful of famous teams), it surely can regain some of its lost lustre.
