    I meant the format as in having a group stage and so on, was an international knockout competition before 1992. Back then, I think only the league winners automatically qualified and whoever finished 2nd entered a qualifying round.
    Oh Right. Your right then. I think it changed around same time as the Premiership started. Newcastle finished 3rd and didn't get Champions League Football.

    Part of me wishes it could go back to just being champions getting entered.

    Cantona is eaaaasssssillly the most hyped up player in PL history. The guy had charisma, but why couldnt he get a game for France?
    Erm, because he called the manager something like a "bag of ****". Doesn't exactly endear you to your manager, does it? Plus his ban after the Selhurst Park incident.

    From Platini onwards he was a regular. Was captain at one point. But France failed to qualify .

    45 caps, 20 goals. It's hardly like be barely played for France.

    That really isn't a bad record when you consider France didn't qualify for either WC 90 or 94, his post-Selhurst Park ban, and that he retired fairly young at 31. Not that he would have been selected following Selhurst Park even if he hadn't retired in 1997.

    Contribution in the CL?
    7 goals in 21 appearances (including games for Leeds)

    Those stats are a little misleading considering we were fairly poor in the Champions (hampered by the 3 foreigners rule , and the difference between continental and English football). It wasn't until Cantona's final season that we really began to turn up in the Champions League. Plus he did more than score.

    Why are you so protective of Zurich? I'm sure his 'lifts' should make him be able to protect himself.
    Only thing he 'lifts' is my ****, not sure how that can qualify him to protect himself against another man. Not sure how a sissy boy can protect himself at all. But then again, I have seen funnier things in my time.

    I bet he is actually a puff in real life though. Probably walks around Soho in Arsenal themed drag and carries a donation box for free blowies in exchange. You do get a lot of these sorts of crets around London.

    Something I've been thinking about recently is sterling's development.

    People are always comparing him to Walcott to be honest.
    Now I think Walcott is a better player at the moment, but when do you think sterling will surpass him?

    Let's be honest, it's gonna happen - sterling is ultimately a better Walcott with time to come.

    Sterling just needs goals as his all round game is already better than Walcott.

    I also think Liverpool play a system that means that he exploits space, when teams don't play such suicidal tactics, narrow the space between the Central midfielders Sterling will struggle to influence the game as much as he usually does.

    What's to say he'll actually be as consistent for his whole career? Countless amounts of young players look dangerous at first then fall off massively. What's to say he's not the next Andy Caroll? :cool:

    Nah the guy is great but Walcott was our key player when he was here this season ( for a month -.- ). Watch him boss it next season.

    Looks like Paulinho is joining Chelsea, cheeky bid for Soldado? Don't let his first season blind, he is a very very good striker. With the way we play and the midfielders we have he'll have a field day.

    Who Paulinho or Soldado? Paulinho wouldn't add much, Chelsea don't even need him tbh. Soldado on the other hand I still rate him, just Tottenham didn't use him properly.

    I just googled it, the whole thing is based off 3 lines in a what's basically a gossip column on a not-particularly-reliable brazilian website.

    Nah an agent has confirmed it, they've accepted the bid but the deal will be complete after the WC.
