Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread
I miss the Cup Winners Cup. I think it's a legit trophy as there is such a thing as a good cup side, who might flounder in a league but can pull out one-off performances to beat bigger and better clubs.
Seemed right to me for those teams to have their own contest, best of the best of the knock-out specialist teams.
It could never survive the current Champs League format though, with loads of the domestic cup winners qualifying for that via the league placings.
