Automatic Qualifiers for Champions League?

Recommended Posts

Seems Europe's 'elite' want guaranteed entry to the Champions League, regardless of their league position.

Rubbish. Makes a mockery of the competition if so.

Wasn't there always some weird talk of this? Don't these 'teams' realize that even if they get the big payouts that it will totally dilute their leagues? How are the FA's in these countries even allowing this kind of bullshit. No surprise that Juventus is heading this they've pretty much got a free pass at league title every year. I am even more surprised that UEFA is allowing this kind of crap to be heard.

Won't happen. There will be boycotts. This isn't America where we have fixed teams in the top league

Bollocks this. Even speaking purely as a Liverpool fan it's bollocks. There's no pride in competing in the Champions League when it's by decree

Plenty of Americans working within UEFA I think.

Surely that would mean they wouldn't be fussed?

It goes back to the first point. You can have an off season and focus more on the CL instead of the league. It also automatically assures a top spot and puts other teams off from trying unless they want to be content with whatever slots UEFA gives Italian teams in the tournament. Imagine them saying its okay we'll come third if the competition strengthens but we are still assured a CL spot for the lifetime of the rule? Its not like they have pressure now but having zero pressure is very different from having very little pressure. Its a silly idea either ways.
