I just call it the EL2. Makes it much more complicated for what it's worth. Soon UEFA will change the CL to a crappy Swiss model that is even more complicated to figure out.

Proposal:
The Champions League
Qualifying teams: champions of each European league and the Lichtenstein football cup

Now we can eliminate Manchester United from the UCL forever because they’ll never win the premier league

Oh that just reverts back to the old European Cup days. I bet you were around for that if you're feeling nostalgic.

We can just send Spurs to the Europa Conference League but then again they'd bottle the final to some Albanian club no one knows and has heard of.

Daniel Levy once spent an entire window spending nothing in transfers. When he does spend, it's on players like Davinson Sanchez who cannot defend at all. They could have gotten Dias but instead spent it on Joe Rodon, who hasn't been played much.

Should’ve spent it on Joe Rogan.. smoking a blunt could help Levy
They’ll probably buy a replacement to Kane

Watch them spend 60 million on Ivan Toney because Levy wants to create a midtable quality club.

He scored, what, 30 odd goals. He set a championship record in his first season there. The man is destined to be a good player.

Considering it's Daniel Levy, he'll spend 60 million for Toney but not spend anything on any other quality striker.

Why would he?
The formations in which Toney played in for Brentford only had him as the main man—the 5-1-2-2 in the playoffs and mainly the 4-3-3 both of which succeeded massively for them.

Daniel Levy has a weird transfer strategy. He rates championship-standard players more highly than players from other countries.

Hard to explain Sonny then.
It’s not like there’s much of an up and coming talented striker right now—we’re in that age where football’s next generation is 22-25, not quite youngster but not a senior player.

Levy only cares about attackers but doesn't care to strengthen midfield and defense. No wonder Tottenham are a shambles because their backline and midfield are crappy despite having a prolific attack.

Well their main CB used to be a diehard Arsenal supporter so who’s the real winner in that investment?

When Eriksen left the midfield has basically fallen into shambles. Dele Alli is talented but has no work ethic, Winks is crap, Sissoko is also crap. Lo Celso and Ndombele are rarely used.

He just lacks commitment and seems to care more about hairstyles and social media rather than his on-field product. If he bucks his ideas, becomes more consistent, and commits on the pitch, then he could realize his potential once again.
