Posted by The CynicChampions League audiences are falling for the simple reason that people are fed up of watching the same teams playing each other year in and year out.------------------I don't really see the difference between that and watching the same teams play each other in the EPL every year in and year out. 3 teams change each season, probably the same as ECL.
There is a separate issue which needs addressing namely the effect of all these European competitions on our own leagues and players who we pay to watch. It appears that those in charge of Euro competitions would like to see 'theirs' take precedence over all others, incl cups. The European Cup, as it was, was one thing now we have numerous other competitions to contend with, plus internationals.
Arsene Wenger was spot on with thisHe said a couple of years ago the CL is becoming boring and less important, he is 100% correct.Everyone knows now what the last 6/8 teams will be, whats the point in playing the other games.....Clubs dont care though, as long as they bank 20/30 million for getting thereEurope used to mean something
Champions League is Champions League in name only, it is a vehicle for big clubs to become even richer..would rather see smaller nations break away and create proper European Champions Cup...leave the sharks to their own feeding frenzy
Champions League audiences are falling for the simple reason that people are fed up of watching the same teams playing each other year in and year out.A third competition won't reverse this trend but dilute the audience further.
The only reason for another competition is the greed of the elite countries in the Non-Champions League.
How about an "Anti-LFC League Cup".Manure fans would win this each year.
At least when a team will finish third in the champions league group won't go to the Europa league automatically and win it(most of the cases)
@680 El goofyYou got thumbs down because you are talking utter nonesense...as usual.
Maybe in minority but I don't the the third competition is bad or just for money ( of course they want profit too). Also, having Champions league only for Champions would make it boring. You would have only 5-6 good teams amongst the 32. Champions League in the current format ( for deciding teams who enter it) is, IMO is fine.
