Any thoughts or reactions on the changing of seeding in European Football. They will give Pot 1 places for the champions league group to champions of the cup itself, Germany, Spain, Russia, France, Italy, England and Portugal unless the winner of the CL is the league winner from one of those countries. Then the 8th place will go to Holland. This could mean:
Pot 2 having the likes of Arsenal, Man United, Man City, Porto, Real Madrid, Athletico Madrid, (unless Real win the CL or league).
Pot 1 would have Chelsea, Barcalona and Bayern, PSG, but also the likes of Benafica, Juventus, Zenit St Petersberg and PSV.
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

I dont like that. Teams like Zenit and Benfica, still good teams, are quite inferior to the likes of Chelsea, Barca, etc. This new system seems very unbalanced.

Of course, this wont effect me as I support Southampton.
