Champions League once upon a time essentially was about just 2 teams from each league and when all thrown together, they would be on par with each other.

I know from our own experience in finishing 4th led to a historical triumph in 2005, but a team finishing 4th could have finished 15-20 points behind the champions. That to be is a bit of a gulf in quality and achievement.

So from the 2 made pots, isn’t the starting point of this essentially 2-tier?

I just think if we are going about it in this manner, then the title of the competition needs a rethink. From a personal point of view, I’ve been longing for it to revert back to the old-skool knockout competition.
