If ever you want confirmation that those in charge of UEFA have a collective IQ of less than that of gerbil ... you only have to look at the current two competitions.
Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United, Blackburn Rovers and all Rangers secured four berths for British teams in the knockout phase of the UEFA Cup on Thursday. And good on them.
But Newcastle took the long route to glory, playing in the Inter Toto Cup. No-one can WIN the Inter Toto Cup, because the competition doesn't even have a CUP!
And now we are close to who will qualify for the last 32 of the UEFA Cup, we are at the stage where the 'failures' of the Champions League are given a THIRD chance to win something.
Eight teams from the Champions League will also go into the draw.
At first those qualifiers for the Champions League were told 'if you fail you will go into the UEFA Cup'. Those who qualified had a crack at the Champions League. Now eight who fail ... go into the UEFA Cup.
'Bizarre' isn't the word for it. Ridiculous is!
