Hope nobody posted it before: A club assembly suggested to reform the UEFA cup. They want to reduce the system to 40 participants and introduce a group system (8 groups with 5 teams). In these groups everyone plays once (!) against everyone in a way that each team has two home and two away games. Only the first ranked of each group qualifies for the quarterfinal which is held in regular k.o.-system. I'm just afraid that 32 of the participants play the regular UEFA way to qualify for the competition - and the UEFA cup as introduced here only starts after the first Champions League group stage to take over the 8 CL 3rd ranked teams.
