do you like the currently format? do you thonk something is wrong? i think there're many teams of low level in first group stages...i mean i'd like a main cup or league without preliminary rounds and directly a group stage (style Euroleague of Basketball). My idea is a Champions league with 24 teams 1st phase 4 groups with 6 teams each one in 10 games match of regular season and a play-offs side with quarterfinals (without draw) 2 legs ,Semifinals in 2 legs and final . the teams could play are: holder UEFA Cup Champion and the best teams of top-10 domestic league: 1st domestic league of UEFA Ranking with 4 teams 2nd,3rd and 4th with 3 teams 5th 6th and 7th with 2 teams 8th,9th and 10th with 1 team the rest of champions and runner up relegated in UEFA cup.
