Why do teams....

...spend their entire seasons killing themselves to make it into the UEFA Cup places, only to then play weakened teams in the UEFA Cup so they can concentrate on the league…in order to get into the UEFA Cup places…?

Its bullshit.

That competition is winnable for any of our countries teams that manage to qualify for it, Fulham are testament to that.

If and when we get back in there, I would hope we will fight tooth and nail to win the fucker, and have lots of trips to obscure countries along the way.

It ought to be a means for our fine country's xenophobic louts to see more of the world than the resort pool in Shagaluf, but instead they opt to sit in some horrific estate pub to watch it on a blurry bed sheet screen, drinking watered lager that costs more per pint than a plane ticket to Macedonia would have.

If the fan's can't be bothered, and the club's can't be bothered you've got to wonder why these competitions persist.

Are the fans not going though??????

I havent really taken any notice of home and away followings in any competition that doesnt involve us, but I do recall fans kicking up a stink about O'Neil throwing Villa's chances the season before last to concentrate on getting into the top 4???

Villa never have any fans going anywhere in the UK so God knows how many they'd take to Slovenia.

Waste of time qualifying for the thing only to treat is as an exercise for your kids...why turn your nose up at silverwear?
