Champions League.... was created by munchymagic
What a [censored] joke - neither have won their own domestic league in how long?

Thirty years?

You absolutely Meldrew. Two stupendously entertaining semi finals and this is all you have to say?

Great games regardless Ibogaine - you are missing the point.

You can never have won the top flight in your own country and win the Champions League every season which makes a mockery of its own title.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City and even Leicester deserve(d) their place in it as they are recent winners.

Tottenham and Liverpool are just decent cup teams and haven't ben Champions for decades - maybe they should split the cup into two, former champions from the olden age and The Champions League.

Who cares what the competition is called? It's the competition for the best teams in Europe and it's hard to argue against Liverpool and Spurs being among those. Going back to just the champions in every country would make for a crap competition these days

I normally want Liverpool to lose every match (apart from against Man Utd), but I’m so against the away goals rule, i know people like it but I don’t. The idea that spurs have got through 2 rounds by drawing both ties over 2 legs and it not being decided on extra time or pens bugs me. So in a way I feel Liverpool are more deserving of their place as they’ve actually scored more goals than their opponents to get there.

"Champions" or not, I just enjoy the fact its the best teams in Europe, even if that means its more than a couple from each country.

If we're taking issue with the name then its the "League" part I don't like. Rarely get a good job until the knock-out stages. Would be much better without the shitty group stage bit. No seeding either

May as well rename it the 'pretentious' league because that is all that it is.

Happy that English teams that don't win the league doing well rather than Spanish ones say, but is it still a crock of shite.

PLASTIC PEOPLE.

I thought it was much better when it started and the group stage was limited to four groups only. The part where teams who finish third in the group drop down into the Europa Lge should tell anyone what it's really all about.
