Will UEFA allow that?

I have a feeling they won't.

They have changed the rule. Europa League winners now get a spot in the Champions League.

Fuck yeah my home town team, first live Chelsea game for me since Chelsea Spurs in 2016!

I'm aware of that, but they could deduct a place or have two teams fight for qualification. They have prevented 5 teams going into the CL from England since it happened a few years back.

I know it's a different situation, but I'm sure they'll put something in place to prevent it soon enough, if they haven't already.

But why would UEFA change now when they themselves comfirmed that 5 clubs from the same country can be in the Champions League?

The reason they give the Europa League winners a place in the Champions League is to make that competition more appealing. They aren't going to make the third/fourth placed team suffer for that.

That doesn't affect the EL. If two teams have to qualify, the EL winners won't care one bit.

They won't have a leg to stand, if UEFA want to change things. How do you think Tottenham felt in 2012?

Powerless!

Powerless!

But the old rule was already established when that happened. Tottenham knew they wouldn't play in the Champions League if we beat Bayern Munich in the final.

As I said previously, if that rule isn't already in place now (I'm not a UEFA sec), it will be soon enough.

No one, but I was making a valid point in relation to the topic at hand.

What's wrong with having 5 teams from the same country anyway? Why would UEFA change it back to 4 as the maximum??

Why don't you ask them?

I have nothing against it, but UEFA did in 2005 and acted upon it.

I'm guessing you meant the situation with Liverpool when they won the Champions League?

That was different. The competition needed the holders in it and hence why UEFA decided to put them in even though they finished fifth (IIRC) that season. It didn't even affect Everton who got fourth spot.

Yes. It didn't affect them, but it has affected everyone else since. Them failing to qualifying was music to UEFA's ears.

Konoplyanka must be one of the most underrated player in the world. His style of play definitely reminds me of Hazard/CR7. It's a shame player from leagues like Ukraine are hardly known, it's just the mainstream teams. Konoplyanka, based on skill and ability, would walk into any Premier League side. He will be a free this summer and quite surprised at the lack of interest. At the current rate, it just seems Spurs or Liverpool interested. Nobody realises how talented this guy is because he plays in a league no one watches.

I was getting a bit excited about this Barca as they play quite great football, but just remembered about that 2009 semi final again. Fuck them. I hope Juve wins just to make them cry. Pricks.

But it will probably end like that euro 2012 finale between spain and italy <_<

Spanish media:

"Benítez was set to return to the Premier League and join West Ham. However, things have changed quickly, as transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio reported yesterday that Real Madrid are very interested in replacing Carlo Ancelotti with Rafa Benítez."

:D :D :D
