Kompany will be back, Sterling will be back playing, Hopefully Pep will stop fannying about and play a settled defence. I have a wee feeling that City will go far this season in the Champions League

The CL just doesn't do it for me, ok a few different teams from the normal like Leicester but who wants to watch a game involving them ! Same old teams as usual at this stage due to the inflated money they get in their respective countries.

It has lost its appeal for me and I struggle to have the slightest bit of interest in any of these games, mainly because it was the same ones last year and the year before that and so on. Most of those teams are only there to make the numbers up and you could bet your house on at least one of the teams making the final if not both.........and that for me is big turn off.

 

I remember going back to the late 90s and I was so happy to be watching Utd v Juve or one of the other teams not so well known such as PSV v Lyon but it seems to be the same games all the time.........anyone else a little fed up with the whole thing ? Fair enough if your team is in their but even when Rangers were playing a part it or not I was still looking forward to watching other teams and appreciating particular players.

I agree to an extent Cam but it is not a Champions League it is THE European Elite League with the Elite clubs taking part. That is what the TV companies want and that is what they are going to get.

 

There is a 'Champions' route to the group stages and i don't have the stats as i didn't pay that much attention to it but would be interested to know how many that qualified through the Champions route got through the group stage and how many finished bottom of their group.

I don't think that matters though Trav and you could hardly hit those teams over the head with a stick, its like Ross County trying to win the league here with the difference in finances. It is getting way over board now and I'm just wondering how long it will be before real fans start to show their annoyance at the whole thing.

 

I would have far more interest in the Champions League if it were exactly that, the tournament we competed in during its first year and the few years after were great as it was all champions........spoiled goods for me, of course supporters of the teams who get the easy passage and most money will never complain but I do hope something happens about the whole thing. Either tell the teams who they want in the tourney, likes of Real, Barca, Bayern and all the usual team to piss off and play each other for eternity and let the rest of us get back to playing a game that is more evenly matched on and off the field.

Rename it the european cup cos there teams finishing 4rth and 3rd etc and getting a straight passage and others playing 3 qualiers when they won their league , the quality shouldnt matter or if they call it the CL , of ciurse they want the best clubs in there but the name should change , that annoys me , even smallet counrties dont get a look in cos its a big club love in , saying all of that i do enjoy the games and look forward to the finals esp if they turn out to be a derby like last season
