    If we are against the SL and everything it stands for then surely rule change 2 is a bit debatable but anyway on the whole do you prefer this format or the current one?

    But would that only be previous winners to keep the selection process clean and not affected by bungs, Aston Villa for example

    don’t worry about that Duggie because you’ll never see your team in it

    can you just vote please so that I know if you’re happy or unhappy with the rule changes?

    I haven't looked at this at all, but going by those rules, not everyone will play each other?

    So how will they decide who plays who for each set of 10 games?

    They’re seeded fixtures.

    I've voted against it, purely because of the second item, no one should have an automatic right to a competition unless they were the previous seasons winners. All clubs should only be allowed to participate based on there previous seasons performance.

    I quite like the one league idea, I've never liked these multiple leagues, that's ok for the World Cup because I'm use to that format, but never taken to the idea for European Club games. I just can't be arsed to scroll through multiple tables, all in one league is easier on my brain.

    So they're like the groups but in one so-called league.

    Allowing 10 games instead of 6.

    Treble stop confusing it. <laugh>

    It's ONE league and as Tel said I expect the 10 games allocated to your team will be seeded.

    I see the difference in that all the points allocated go into one table. It's simpler in that sense.

    But the whole seeded selection of teams, for who plays who is what we have now aint it.

    I honestly don't know is the answer. <laugh>

    All I ever do in the Champions League is look to see what British teams are playing and support them. I've never given the rules any thought, because I don't care.

    "New spots for Elite clubs that failed to qualify"

    No. Toss it in the bin.

    That's exactly what people just complained about, no reward for failure.

    If a political party doesn't get enough points, you don't let them keep a bunch of elite politicians cos they get viewership.

    I hear the coefficient points will count.

    Meaning if say we had a Lesta type winner of the prem again and Liverpool finish 5th but have better coefficient points to lestah none.

    We would get in over them.

    Or summin like that. And that ****. Basically what the ESL was.

    And perhaps that was the end game after all cos I don't believe these ****s have done this without knowing it would be rejected, but they thought **** it we do it anyway and if we get away with great if not we get a better deal anyway.

    ****s

    No it’s not that.

    They’re making 2 slots available to the clubs with the highest coefficient who missed out on CL group stage qualification in their league finish, but did qualify for either the qualifying round of the CL or the EL, but their inclusion will not be to the detriment of those who actually qualified.

    I think it’s an unnecessary rule and one that was patently inserted to try and appease the dirty dozen types. Should be binned off, but it’s been misreported and sensationalised as being something it isn’t.

    Anything that prevents another Spurs v Liverpool final gets my vote. What a dismal 90 minutes that was, stunk the competition up so badly that 2 years later the competition nearly died.
