Celtic have been drawn to face Flora Tallinn of Estonia or Lincoln of Gibraltar in the second qualifying round.

Celtic will be away in the first leg.

Follow @sffpodcast on Twitter and send the team a tweet

will changing the format of the UEFA Champions league GROUP STAGE from 8 GROUPS OF 4 teams to 2 groups of 8 teams (with all other rounds in the competition remaining knockout).  

 

1) make the uefa champions league better 

2)  Make the UEFA Champions League Worse.

 

 

Yes you want a knockout format for every round/stage of the competition but for the moment that is not on the cards.

Seems like it's the start of getting rid of the smaller clubs to the advantage of the big leagues

It does look that way.

But I guess that comes as no surprise since the whole thing is now about generating money from TV coverage.


Common sense

greed, greed, greed.  

 

If they want to make money 24/7 and beyond why do they just go and work at the Royal Mint!

 

PS I always liked the UEFA champions league when it had 2 groups format INSTEAD OF 8 GROUPS in the group stage (regardless of who was in it at the time).

Changes to the UEFA Champions League that big clubs want

·      Games in Asia and North America

·      Games at weekends

·      Wild card entry based on historical merit

plus a cut from 32 team to 16 teams in the group phase.

 

https://www.dreamtea...change-forever/

 

your thoughts.

 

mine as long as there is at least one place based on merit for the best of the rest (outside of the chosen few) then i can live with these changes as that would still allow everybody based on merit to reach the top.

IMO....a system designed to turn more of your ordinary football fans off the competition. I have little interest in it as it is but this is a load of shite as far as I'm concerned. Money, money, money. Simply shows that it always has been run for the top tv revenue countries irrespective of co-efficients!

Dug, it came as news to me that Campbell Ogilvie was one of the leading lights in introducing the Champions League to Euro Stage.  Well done Campbell, you managed to help weaken not one European Club Trophy, but 3.

 

The Cup Winners Cup and UEFA Cup were great tournaments.  I am afraid that the Europa League is so bland now that it almost serves no purpose.

 

The money rules and the fans are short changed.

It will always be the European Cup to me H. When you get non champions in the competition it devalues the entire entity of the competition. Agree wi you re the ECWC & EC.
