Pretty astonishing luck. That is if you really believe it's luck.
Would lol if this works against them, like if the tie gets taken to extra time and Bayern scores an away goal.

If we GOAT and don't WOAT (like we did against PSG). I firmly believe we can beat these CHOKERS.

Now this season they are looking bigger and badder than ever before. So what? The bigger then come, the harder they fall.
Didn't you get torn apart by Drogba too?

It's looking good for Barca or Bayern. In six out of the last seven seasons Barcelona or the team that has knocked Barcelona out has won the Champions League.

Default Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread - It Just Got Mythical

I've been thinking recently on how they can make the Europa League serious again, I mean the UEFA Cup was prestigious whatever way you look at it. So I was thinking ways of improving the Europa League:

First and foremost, I think abolish the group format. Personally I think it takes away the excitement of cup ties and it drags the competition out needlessly, I mean it takes about six games each to reduce the number of teams by half, rather than 2 games as is the case in a knock out format.

Next step for me would be to reduce the number of teams that play in the competition. At the moment 48 teams play in it, which of course means the likes of Israeli cup winners, Slovenian Champions, 4th-placed Cypriots and 6th-placed Ukrainians all get involved when they are all more than likely to finish bottom of a group in that format.

Probably one of the most important. Stop the teams who go out of the Champions League group stages from entering the Europa League, as simple as that. I have no doubt that UEFA thought this would add quality to the competition but personally I think this just reinforces then notion that the Champions League is stronger than the Europa League, and I imagine that the drop outs probably don't even want to be in the competition.

Another idea I like is that they should give the Europa League winner a spot in the Champions League group stages. I think that certainly gives it some prestige and will make teams to compete for it. The Europa League is never going to be as popular as the Champions League, so UEFA should stop trying to make it a like-for-like copy of the Champions League. A normal cup competition with less teams and a bigger prize would make it better quality, more passionate and exciting and less of a drain on team's squads, for example you'd only have to win 9 games to win the cup.

Qualification for the CL would be the ultimate prize to make it prestigious again. Also, to appease all fan bases, bring back the Cup Winners Cup in a straight knockout. Obviously go by the coefficients for who automatically qualifies (let's say, 10 clubs) and the other winners qualify for the 6 other spots.

Although I do agree with all of your points, the only one that matters is the last paragraph. Introduce only the last paragraph and teams will try harder, introduce all but and no one will bat an eyelid.
