    • The four top-ranked national leagues will have four teams in the group stage. (Viva Italia, ennui France.)
    • The UEFA Europa League winners will automatically qualify for the UEFA Champions League group stage.
    • The Champions and League qualifying routes will remain, but with less spots.
    • Individual club coefficients will be changed. They will consider previous European titles, and won't consider the country coefficient except for lower ranked teams.

    It's a disgrace that a few elite clubs have taken control of European football. If they want to keep threatening to break away and create a Super League, let them do it. Clubs should be more than just businesses set up to make a profit, they should be there to represent the people.

    Agreed. What a boring group-stage this has become! What makes it doubly-frustrating is that as the CL becomes less and less competitive, winning the CL ironically is becoming more and more prestigious. It seems like winning your domestic league doesn't matter that much anymore - at least not in the top 4 UEFA leagues.

    After the 2-10 loss to Bayern on aggregate Arsenal should be banned from Champions League play for the remainder of this century
