Agreed although most of those teams should have been in it in the first place. Champions League should be champions only afterall.

I think it's only in this country we treat it with such distain.

It's a big deal for clubs outside of the traditional 3 or 4 powerhouse leagues in Europe who have no chance of doing anything in the CL

Ah yes, UEFA's answer to the JPT. Whatever happened to the InterToto?

Spurs' approach to the Intertoto was great. Played games at the old Goldstone Ground (I think) and fielding a mixture of youth/fringe (Kevin Watson) players and loanees (Alan Pardew and David 'Budgie' Byrne).

They got punished.

Inter City Fairs Cup was the first I remember.

And disbelieving the score Ajax 5 Liverpool 0

WTF - a football club named after some cleaning product!

Why can't we have a lower league equivalent? Use some of the ridiculous funds made from the CL to spread the spirit of international co-operation and promote inter-european goodwill and so on and so forth.

Might make the little guys a bit of money too.

Oh wait, scratch that idea then.

This kind of happens with the Europa league, insofar as the early rounds start more or less as soon as the WC ends, and feature games from small UEFA members Wales, RoI, Luxembourg, etc.

If say, Aberystwyth Town qualify, and get drawn away to an Icelandic team, then I believe there is financial help from UEFA available for costs.

Of course it doesn't do much for lower league clubs in the bigger UEFA members, but the lack of interest in the Anglo-Italian cup when it was tried again in the 90's suggests, it would struggle.

Ever since the fuckers wouldn't allow us into Europe after besting Arsenal in '69 they can all fuck off!
