Isnt this just about the most ridiculous tournament in the world, other than the English, League cup which is even worse. The whole situation whereby Champions League drop outs are "relegated" to the UEFA cup is a joke. No one cares who wins this tournament, and there is no need for it. I know that it gives smaller clubs the opportunity to play in Europe, but when you add this to the F.A cup, the League cup (or the equivelant of) it becomes almost meaningless. Its almost a tournament for the sake of having a tournament. A *#*#*#*#ing waste of time, that justs adds to fixture conjestion.
