Three Is Enough...

English clubs would face losing a Champions League spot if Michel Platini wins the race to become president of UEFA.

The three-times former European footballer of the year, who is challenging the present incumbent, Lennart Johansson, to become the next UEFA president, believes no country should have more than three representatives in Europe's premier club competition.

"Four clubs are too many," said Platini at the launch of his media campaign to become the next leader of European football after years at the top table of both UEFA and FIFA.

"For everybody - for the country itself, the fans and for the TV rights. Three should be the absolute limit.


If so, we're pretty much screwed, right? I think Michele Platini is someone that speaks some sense so far and his idea does sound good there. But can we overtake Chelsea, ManYoo and Arsenal...? Hmm....

Booooo!!...I don't like the idea personaly I feel English clubs should always have four.Take out some of the smaller clubs lets be real do they really have a chance,plus it would make for a better group play.

I have a feeling there will be a major reform somewhere along the line in the next year or two. It's either they change the entire competition system or the G14 will seperate from the rest and form some sort of Super League..just rumours, but very possible..
