The big club debate, blah, blah, blah

 

1  Newcastle 50,225

2  Rangers 49,853

3  Sevilla 42,935

4  Werder Bremen 40,782

5  Benfica 36,689

6  Tottenham 35,671

7  PSG 34,667

8  Lens 33,870

9  Leverkusen 22,500

10 Espanyol 21,060

11 Shakhtar 19,625

12 Osasuna 16,307

13 AZ 15,876

14 Celta 14,375

15 Braga 11,699

16 Maccabi 9,000

 

 

Rich list

 

1 Newcastle United

2 Tottenham Hotspur

3 Rangers

4 Benfica

 

and Rangers and Benfica 40% lower than us, no other club even makes it on.

 

 

UEFA Co-efficients

 

1  Newcastle 75,950

2  Sevilla 61,006

3  Leverkusen 57,650

4  Benfica 51,533

5  AZ Alkmaar 48,650

6  Werder Bremen 43,960

7  Rangers 43,023

8  Celta Vigo 43,006

9  PSG 41,757

10 Lens 39,757

11 Shakhtar 33,777

12 Espanyol 33,006

13 Osasuna 25,006

14 Tottenham 20,950

15 Maccabi 19,008

16 Braga 17,533

 

The point is as a club in 2007 we should fear no one, we're the richest, best supported, club left in this competition, as well as having the best European pedigree over the last five years.  Ignoring the fact Benfica won a few European Cups in the 60's, going off this evidence we have the biggest stature of all these, and should be looking to win it with confidence.  It's not played on paper but avoid Sevilla and we can get to the final.

sorry to sound totally thick but what is a Coefficient?  :-[

 

UEFA ranking system.

 

You get points for winning games or even just appearing in Europe, the more points the higher the team is placed.

 

It matters when clubs are drawn at the start of euro campaigns.

 

Its what seeds teams.

 

Jose kicked off when he won the title yet got seeded behind Manu & Liverpool, Liverpool were ahead as they'd been play CL football for the last 4-5 years, chelsea had once or twice.

 

Its also usually counted for over the last 5 years.

 

We've got two years with poor or no co-ef at all.

Actually, we've been racking up points over the past couple of seasons and are ranked very highly.

 

This is because we've been in the UEFA Cup and not the Champions League and so are facing clubs from Belgium and the like.

Next season we'll be even better as one of our seasons without euro football gets knocked off the end.

We have an excellent European pedigree, which I'm very proud of personally. Long may it continue... all the way to a trophy.

only second due to the alphabet though, because e is before n, both have 15 points after 8 games

Since we lost against Partizan 39 games ago in Europe, our record has been really good, all be it against very ordinary opposition for the large part.

 

P  W  D  L

39 28 7  4

 

Hence the very high coefficient ranking.
