Recommended Posts

please, can anyone explain to me, clearly & simply (as i'm a bit thick, and a yank to boot!) how many cups (FA, UEFA, carling, etc.) there are, and their rank/significance? 

or at least direct me to a website that explains them?

 

i struggle to "get it"  when it comes to these things.   

 

sorry

:lol: What's to get?

 

FA Cup - main English domestic cup, featuring every team in the country right down to amateur level.

 

League Cup - second rate domestic cup featuring only League teams (Prem, Champ, Leagues 1 and 2). Also known as the Carling Cup, because it's currently sponsored by Carling Lager. Formerly the Worthington Cup and the Coca-Cola Cup.

 

Champions League - European competition made up of the best teams from each country.

 

UEFA Cup - second rate European cup featuring the rest, basically.

 

There's also stuff like the FA Vase (non league teams) and the Football League Trophy (Johnstone's Paint Trophy, formerly the LDV Vans trophy), which features teams from Leagues 1 and 2.
