Default Platini wins UEFA presidency

and i dont like it.
He wants to reduce number of Spanish (and other bigger countries) entries in CL.

In other words: even if Depor gets out of the financial crisis, dont expect any CL campaign soon, and sure not XX times in a row.
But expect Barca and Real to always become richer.

It sucks hard

What!

I am upset about that revelation but I do believe the places should be spread around. For one I believe Holland should get more than 1 direct entry.

Holland??

Why Holland??? They have only PSV as a decent team, and it plays in CL, so what's the point? Ajax is crap latest years.

Overall, I do think that 4 teams of a nation for a tournament that's called "Champions League" is way too much. Lesser teams for the CL would also spice up the (almost forgotten) UEFA Cup.

They don't.

How many teams a country gets for CL/UEFA Cup is always based on the success of its teams in those competitions in the last 5 years. The points they get are added up and divived through the teams that participated. That's called the "5-years-coefficient-ranking".

Right now it's
4 CL places (2 direct + 2 through qualification) for England, Italy and Spain
3 CL places (2 direct + 1 through qualification) for France, Germany, Portugal
etc. etc.

Only TWO teams are DIRECTLY qualified at max., as you wrote. If that's too much, make it 1 directly, no problem, but still keep at least 2, and better 3 (as now) places vacant for qualifying rounds.

How many nice finals, semi's, runs, did we get involving teams what were not champion of their country? Perhaps over half of the games!
remember Depor, Valencia, ...

Or should it be Barca or Real, Chealsea and Bayern every year over and over again?

It doesn't matter what Mr.Platini wants.
The big leagues and big clubs have so much power within UEFA that they usually get their way.
Remember the CL was started because the big teams threatened a break away European league.

Platini is biting off more than he can chew if he takes on G14.

Unfortunately, money talks.

I think he's right about taking away CL spots away from the best leagues. I mean, look at fx. Denmark. FC Copenhagen had to go through a very tough qualifiakation on 3 rounds to get to CL, even though they became danish champions. It's too hard for the smaller leagues to get teams into CL and that's sad. FC Copenhagen beat Manchester and Celtic in CL, and Ajax in Amsterdam in the qualification. The best teams in the smaller countries, isn't that bad afterall, and that's why I agree with him.

I must say that I don't really believe these UEFA and FIFA elections are 100% fair. Blatter has won two FIFA elections very surprisingly and doubtfully, and after the first one he even admitted he had paid (bribed) several (mainly African) nations to vote for him. He was also under investigation for corruption and a few other things, but it was cancelled after his re-election. I don't trust that man at all!

About Platini, I can't really say whether I'm glad or not he's the new president, but I'm sure Blatter has something to do with his victory. Blatter supported Platini in public, which he was critisized for.

It's very simple. The bigger footballcountries don't like it, for smaller countries it's much better. Really don't know what to think about it though.

The UEFA Cup is essentially the Champions League but with worse teams. They should turn the UEFA Cup into like a regional Championships where you have say Cataluña versing a team representing Southern France or London.

i just read an article where it is said that platini will give more chances to easteuropean teams. By limiting the power of the 5 big leagues. As for example a cemented spot for a club from the ex-Yugoslavia area. Maybe it is for the best. In the last 15 years we have been watching the same clubs over and over again

Maybe because those clubs are the best ones in Europe. If they want to give more chances to smaller clubs is fine, but don't expect to have a better competition. The CL cold turn into a boring tournament, as it was it during the 80's or like the current UEFA cup.
