UEFA Cup of Not
Posted 24 Aug 2005 - 09:50
It would be crap if we get knocked out tonight and don't get a UEFA cup spot. Lets just hope we can do the business tonight anyway and then we don't need to worry about it. :-)

Meant to be 80 teams fighting for 40 places in the group stages of the UEFA cup (new this year)

I'm sure that if we don't get past Villareal we'd be in the UEFA. It's logical when you think about it - entry is based on league position, and we're not actually in the CL yet because we haven't qualified. So if we don't qualify then we're in the UEFA, which we've definitely already qualified for based on our league position and the strength of the league

Apart from the money and exposure issues, I'd rather see us winning UEFA cup matches rather than being embarrased in the CL.

Certain national champions which do not qualify for the UEFA Champions League in a particular season also participate in the same seasonís UEFA Cup. In addition, the eight third-placed clubs at the end of the UEFA Champions League group stage drop into the UEFA Cup, entering the competition at the end of the group stage."
This confirms that we would drop into the Uefa - at the start of the bizarre group stages (in Uefa you dont get to play everyone in your group - and some teams you only play away, and some only at home - really shit setup.).
If we got into the CL tonight, we would still drop into Uefa if we came 3rd in the grp stages - as it says above...

then round 2 is a group stage, 5 teams per group, only playin each team once, 2 games home 2 games away.
then knock out stages i think, after one round of knock outs, champions league teams come in.
could be wrong though!
