All this stuff with FFP and pre sponsership stadium rights together with agents, image rights and VAR - does anyone else think football was pretty great in the 80s

The more it evolves the more I dislike it. Pure greed.

Want to cut games and not need a winter break - simple idea - 2 qualify for CL and straight to knockout - draw out the hat like FA cup.

If you get knocked out of CL you don't qualify for Europa Cup

Winner of domesric cup (s) in Europa cup. Not 5th in league

People are obsessed with Europe - this causes a lot of the greed.

The above would make FA cup important

Lastly 5 players in starting line up must be English and come through youth set up

Sounds a bit crazy I know but football is so corrupted and everyone is in on it - including us.

I also know there is no chance of any of the above ever happening.

Totally agree but. only winners go into the European cup as I remember it.

{Ed002's Note - It is going the other way with more European games and an additional competition beginning in 2021.}

Sobs, I have said for years, the third placed Champs league team should not go into the Europa league, it devalues the Europa league.

You could play in July in the Europa league, play numerous games, then suddenly you are then faced with teams dropping out of the Champs league.

So yes I agree with the top two teams going through in the Champs league, the draw out of the hat not sure of because wing your group rewards you with being seeded for the next round.

Football has sold it's soul sadly . the thrill has gone and there is a song in there somewhere 🤔.

Is it My way Skylark.

Most likely because you have forgotten about all the Hooliganism and match fixing that went on in the 80s.

For me the fa Cup has lost its spark. Wembley should not host semi finals. Should go back to old Trafford and villa park. Teams don't deserve to play at Wembley until the final. Its just generating money that the da think of.

Same with the play off finals for teams that don't automatically qualify for promotion.

The football was pretty bad generally but yeah. The game was in a much purer state. Oh and our beloved was a serious powerhouse mostly too. I'd take that level of success but with this era of athletes and speed/ skill. Not much chance for watching games on TV though. Had to read about it mostly. Actually no, these days are much much better, who are we kidding.
