    Just read something about UEFA using the European coefficient over the last five years to determine next seasons Champion League spots, if the Premier League is abandoned. In which case, if City are banned we will qualify.

    Yes
    Farcical the value of Europa is carried as high in their points model yet valued so little by them as an organisation

    Crazy really, are these the rankings?

    City
    Liverpool
    Man Utd
    Arse (!)
    Us
    Chels

    So if City aren't banned we would lose out to a team that last qualified for the CL in 2016 [clown emoji]

    Yep and Chelsea who won a European competition are below them too despite beating them to win it
    And united who haven’t really been in it much lately too get the “credit for past success”
    AC mIlan would qualify in Italy I think the way it’s fudged (I haven’t checked but their another benefitting from being good years ago)

    Ha, good point! That's a bit silly.

    Hard to see a way of resolving it fairly tbh.

    Maybe give less credit to wins in a lesser comp
    And no credit for historical success

    If the league is scrapped surely who ever qualified last season qualifies for next season? Scrapping the league means it never existed.

    The league I believe can choose who enters as it’s their representative

    If the results of this season are wiped from the records then the only fair way is to go by last seasons standings.

    Although i do wonder whether they may scrap european football for 1 season - travel abroad may be prohibited for a while even if domestic leagues are able to go ahead

    Makes sense
    Have to feel for certain players though as their goals will be struck off their record

    Chelsea got more Coefficient points for winning the EL than Liverpool did for winning the CL.
    Because of the extra round of games in the EL.
    The system is ridiculous.

    And Barca got more points than Liverpool who beat them in the CL semi, while Ajax got more points than us.

    So basically it's better for your European coefficient to get knocked out of the CL semi final. Top logic.

    It’s no surprise that the system is such a farce, of course, we all know it's designed to keep the most prestigeous big name clubs in the CL.

    Liverpool lost pretty much every away game both last season, and the season before though, so it's not as skewed as it seems.

    I'm taking about the points for last season only, though. There's no logic why the CL winner shouldn't get max points.

    Someone will use it as a way to make sure that the big favorite boys get paid. Here's hoping Voldy has found a way to muscle in. Ethical behavior in European football seems utopian; at this point it is about survival.
