    It is simple. Look at Brazil, the World Champions, if they fail to qualify, they will not defend their title at WC 2006. Champions do not meant automatic qualification.

    Having said that, I do feel that the Champions should be allowed to defend its title. UEFA should do something about it. The G14, which includes the much hated Real Madrid and Man Utd should be pressing the issue to UEFA. Both are president and vice president respectively in the G14.

    France the defending champion auto qualify to play in World Cup 2002.
    But Brazil the defending champion is no longer auto qualify to play in world Cup 2006.

    Could u see that the rule is changing ?

    I dun think FA should replace Liverpool for Everton...but UEFA could make a way for the Liverpool to play as defending champion rather than replace Everton as top 4 team from EPL..if they really want to...

    MU, Arsenal certaionly do not want 5 english team to play in CL..coz the tv right (allocated to English teams) will then be shared by 5 rather than 4.

    I will still hold my believe that UEFA will eventually make Liverpool play CL next year...Just like my believe that Liverpool could beat Juventus and Chelsea in CL. (I did write my view before the game started)

    Btw....did anyone of u guys place a bet on Liverpool for the CL final ?

    Singapore pool offer 1:1.19 to Liverpool @ +1.5 goals.

    Juventus the champion, could not even beat Liverpool....u are crazy to think that MIlan could beat liverpool by 2 goals..

    But I must admit that the return of 1:1.19 is a bit low..

    Confidence is thinking you'll be Champions, arrogance is stating it.

    Of cause the rule changed. Everyone, including the G14 wants Liverpool in. Now the reason that UEFA gave is that they cannot change rules at the last min which I and everyone thinks is a bit crappy.

    And Man Utd, Arsenal, Everton and Chelsea did not say that they did not want Liverpool in. In fact, Everton even support Liverpool's cause to be in CL next season.

    Everton have worked hard but Liverpool have worked just as hard to become CL champion, beating the EPL champion, Serie A champion and runners-up along the way. Even Olympiakos is the greek champ. So theorectically Liverpool is the champion among the elite clubs. Like what RB said... use ur common sense UEFA.. Let Liverpool play...

    Forget the rules. There is seriously something wrong when Champions don't get to defend their title. Change the rules.

    if u ask me..to play in CL or to win EPL..of course the answer is obviously...

    actually I believe the strongest motive to play and win CL is not only to crown the European Champion...but also $.

    This year..we had bang in 50m

    Where did u read that Everton even support Liverpool to be in CL next season... ? I could not believe it. Everton had thousands of reason to hate us.

    and 1 of the most obvious reason is that....After the trouble of Liverpool fans, all english team were banned to play European league for the next 5 years. Everton won the tittle but then banned from playing European football.. That time was the last prime time of Everotn , since then..they suffer until this season.

    Forgive but not forget.

    I read it from bbc sports by one of Everton's decision makers. If i am not worng, it is Everton's chairman/CEO. It is just a little quote in an article about the CL rules. Unfortunately, i can't find the article as i forgot the article's title.

    BUT! I found some articles. Read only if you got a strong heart.

    gosh, this is funny. can imagine the faces of the blues fans. i can't believe they are small minded enough to want milan rather than a fellow english side to win. if everton plays milan in the next finals, i would support everton to win. but then i guess we in s'pore don't have the kind of neighbourhood rivalry they do.

    sigh, in malaysia now and trying to adjust to life with a 56k dial up modem. feel so s-l-o-o-o-o-w-w-w

    i think liverpool may have to contend with eufa cup next season. if the uefa meeting is now, we have a good chance. a few weeks from now, the euphoria would have died down and the bureaucratic law of inertia "a bureaucracy at rest tends to remain at rest even when acted upon by a superior force of logic"
    but seriously, if it comes to between us and everton for a place, it breaks my heart, but i'll stand up for everton. they earned it.

    Liverpool deserve the spot just as much, if not more.

    we won the Cup. rightfully, we should be in the competition to 'defend' the cup, so as to speak.
    if the clowns over in UEFA decided for some reasons that Liverpool need not be in, then so be it. but it is their loss. $$$ from the TV viewers for CL matches is very substantial. can u imagine say, Everton 'live' on TV for a CL game in Singapore?

    no disrespect to Everton, but there are 100% more Liverpool fans around than there are Everton's.

    Everton has released Anthony Gerrard - 18-year-old defender and cousin of Stevie G who has joined Walsall on a free transfer after a successful loan spell.

    Commn sense ...I wonder the UEFA committee have any.

    Before 25-May the final..they said they would not discuss about whether to allow Liverpool to play in next season if they managed to win CL this season but finish at 5th in EPL. They said they would talk about it after the final.

    So...25-May...is the final. 26-May..everyone is celebrating and sending congratualtion message to Liverpool. The player and the manager, and the LFC management are flying back from Turkey back to Liverpool.

    on 27-May to 1-June...they said now it was too late to let Liverpool in.

    All are just simply talkcok ....and if it was too late then why not they discussed the matter before 25-May ? They could have made a decision but not to announce it.

    Do u think this is "common sense " ?

    I agree as well eventhough i am diehard liverpool fan.

    Look at it this way, Everton deserve more than Liverpool based on league form. The rules indicated that top 4 places in the league qualifies. Liverpool have plenty of chances to catch up with everton but fail to do so. If you look at the final tally, only 3 points... i can think of the Chelsea handball incident, self destructions against Crystal Palace, Fulham and even the penultimate game against Arsenal..

    Overall, this season, without a doubt we are a better team than Everton. Let's dun talk abt CL since tehy did not play. But we reach League Cup final as well and we have ten times more injuries than them. Just imagine if Cahill or Sullivan is injured? They will prob be relegated as predicted!

    I think the issue is not whether rules changed or not but rather if it changes retrospectively. Imagine say liverpool finishes 4th, lose CL final. Ac finishes 5th and they say give italy 5 spots so AC can defend title. As a result, top 3 from england qualify. You think thats fair? no right?

    I think the solution is very simple. Just add in a rule whereby, if the defending champion finishes out of the allocated spots in the league, they have to join the CL in the qualifiers. Fair and square.
