    Are you an UEFA employee by any chance? Because that's the fucked up logic that got us in this situation. Placing small/medium teams in the same basket as the behemoths so that it looks like a competition.
    I’d trim down those sorts of teams. They have to go through a qualifying process anyway.

    Lokomotiv
    Shakhtar
    Olympiacos
    Midtjylland
    Krasnodar
    Brugge
    Zenit
    Dynamo
    Ferencvaros
    Basaksehir

    You think CL needs all of those teams? They are Europa level teams. I’m all for inclusion, just not as many of those types of teams. None of those made it past group stage either. Having an Everton/Villarreal type team in place of some of those would mean more viewers/money/better competition. Some might even make it past group stage.

    Best of both worlds would be if there was a way to gather the top teams together to play one another in a larger group where more qualify for last 16.

    While medium and lower ranked teams play in their own groups against one another but less of them qualify for last 16.

    Ten from elite group, four from average group and two from smaller group go through to last 16.

    Allows for more games between top sides, less meaningless games and allows more chances for small teams to come through.

    Even if gave teams more money for being in that elite group which is what they want.

    League A - 16 teams, 8 qualify
    League B - 10 teams, 6 qualify
    Leagues C & D - 4 teams each, 2 qualify
    Some are boring, some are not.
