Yep, the Conference League is brilliant. One of very few bright ideas to come out of UEFA in recent years.

is it, why?

you're getting into europe by finishing 7th, rewarding failure imo

don't get me wrong, i'd be all over it if we we're ever to be in it 

but it shouldn't even exist, same as that nations league crap

Because playing in Europe is brilliant, and this gives more fans the opportunity to experience it.

It is the Papa Johns but instead of Leeds U23s you go off to Cyprus/Denmark/Belgium to play teams you've never played before.

If we stop 'rewarding failure' you end up with only Man City in the Champions League and that's that. Sounds shit.

It's beyond mad you even had to spell out the difference to be honest. 

Clearly been a massive success.

It is all about money, while its a great day out for the fans, in reality its Mickey Mouse competition.

Well done West Ham & moyes 

another final loss for farmers 

Well deserved win for the English club. Hopefully again this coming weekend. You'll be keen for this yes? Oh, hang on a minute - I'd forgotten that its 'Jim Ratcliffe White' these days. 

Three eye tie runners up. I will have some fun with this - "Sempre la damigella d'onore". That will wind them up :D Can't send it until Sunday though.

Fact remains the only country to have a club in all three major European finals. Not too shabby.

I thought Liverpool are in it next season? Did they scrape into the Europa League?

If we ever get back into Europe in any capacity, even the Europa Conference, it will be a monumental achievement and every Wanderers fan will be delirious with joy so talking down the competition is bollocks. I only wish it was us and not Wet Spam.

that's a fair point. 

I'm just saying it doesn't compare to the pizza cup.

Well if you look at it like that...its like letting 4 teams in the Champions league....

Teams not even the Champions or best in their league are winning it....so by your criteria, rewarding failure and letting losers get a chance for a cup....
