UEFA could create third tier of European competition
By Kevin Coulson

UEFA could create a third club competition for European teams, according to reports.

The idea was discussed at a meeting of the 54 UEFA members on Wednesday and it would feature sides that fail to advance from the qualifying rounds for the Europa League – UEFA’s second-tier competition.

Changes would not come until 2018 – as that is when the current set of TV rights expire – and the talks are at a very early stage.

Volodymyr Geninson, executive director at the Football Federation of Ukraine, told The Associated Press: "It will give more opportunity to the clubs who never get in the final stages to participate (in Europe)."

The Ukrainians support the idea, and Geninson said "it's more for participation than making money."

Such a competition would support the plans of UEFA President Michel Platini to give smaller nations increased access to competitions. The Frenchman has already expanded the European Championship to 24 teams and arranged the hosting of Euro 2020 across the continent.

The third-tier competition could be completed before the end of the calendar year, as opposed to going right through to the conclusion of the existing European season.

OUR VIEW

This idea will appeal to smaller clubs which are unlikely to feature in the top two tiers of European competition. From an English perspective, however, teams would surely prefer not to be included. There are already the beginnings of teams fielding weakened XIs because their domestic commitments are too much. Look at Everton, who fell six places in the league last year after a 10-game run to the round of 16 in the Europa League.

Fans are starting to be short-changed when they go to see their teams, expecting a first-choice line-up. If you look at the Euro 2016 qualifiers, there has been a string of meaningless matches with the increased participation.

The smaller teams need to be included so they can have experience of playing at a better level and gradually improve their standard. However, by broadening the field too much UEFA runs the risk of devaluing their competitions and this seems like a step too far.

Mourinho reports Oscar and Baba Rahman will be involved tomorrow. Falcao has a little problem and is out. #CFC

According to the Telegraph, Pedro has a muscle injury and will be replaced by Willian, while Falcao has an unspecified problem and is not fit to feature.

wow just read on twitter that greek riot police came in the stadium and started beating bayern fans so a lot of them left the stadium and went back to the hotel. no other details yet on what happened, like if they did something to provoke it or if it was just police violence against the visiting fans

edit: heres some video https://twitter.com/iMiaSanMia/status/644201021661663232 mean.gif

new to the thread, been lurking the last few pages, glad to see a strong football presence in NT.

A gooner, and really glad to see Arsene rotating more than a player or two this time around, with this squad i think we can still take a confident 2-0 win, atleast i hope so lol (anderlecht flashbacks) I got Giroud putting in a near post giroud flick goal and Oxlade goal in the box. Really hoping for Oxlade to gain some confidence and rhythm after today to give chelski a handful this saturday.
