I have just been looking at Wynton Rufers career with Werder Bremmen and his winning goal in the 1992 European CupWinner's Cup final. Then I realised that this comp was not the Champions League I hear about on TV. I also realised that year they had a UEFA cup going as well.....


.....so how many European cups are there?????

Ok.....so I take it that it goes in this order of importance......

1. Champions League.
2. Cup Winners.
3. UEFA Cup.

So how does a club qualify for each comp?

1. Champions League
2. UEFA Cup

The Cup Winners Cup would have been third in importance had it still been in existance but it was scrapped in 1998 in order to extend the Champions League.

......thats great...so the losers get a chance to prove they are not totally losers. Barcelona gets a chance to run some team into the hard pitch :bravo:

....to prove my point:
"who of any significance plays for Sevilla?" :bana:

Gay-Guy, the point with football is that this is a truely global sport played by hundred of million sportmen on Earth. Consequently the number of top teams and top nations is much more important than in Rugby. UEFA cup although not as good as the Champions' League is however top level competition.

I love football....don't get me wrong.....i suuported Spurs back in the 80's and 90's but the new millenium made me shift to Juventus....even with Zidane gone i am still loyal to Juventus.....I think Del Peiro needs to think about other options though.

Ever since Megadrive I have always played Germany on soccer ***les.

Soccers global market is phenomenal...truly the beautiful game.
